Connecting laptop to TV using Composite Video ? RCA connector

Hi,
I am using a Toshiba laptop and tring to connect to Sony Trinitron TV using a RCA connector.
I have changed the display properties to multiple monitors. But I am not getting any display on the TV even after typing Fn+F5. The screen is blank on the TV.
And i would also like to have the audio connected to the TV from the Laptop. I would like to know what cable can be used for this. If possible attach a photo of the cable so that it would be easy for me identify when buying the same.
Thank you very much in advance.

What do I need to connect a laptop toshiba Satellite L675D-S7052 to a high definition tv


Assuming what you are trying to do is make your HDTV a giant monitor, your HDTV will need analog video input capability --either a standard d-type VGA connector or RGB composite RCA plugs. The laptop has a d-type VGA output. You will need a cable that has matching end for your laptop and TV....either VGA-to-VGA (d-type) or VGA-to-composite. This will handle the vcideo. You will also need a min stereo-to-mini-stereo cable to connect the audio from the headphone output of the laptop to the HDTV.

How to connect acer aspire 5315 to LG led tv


Acer Aspire 5315 doesn't come with an HDMI port. So, you have the following options:
1. Use a VGA Cable to connect the PC to TV if the TV has PC-Input facility
2. Use an S-Video cable to the TV's S-Video-in port if the TV has it

3. Use and S-Video to HDMI converter if the TV has HDMI port
(http://www.amazon.com/Composite-S-video-Audio-HDMI-Converter/dp/B003NS0UUQ)
for audio, you can use 3.5mm to RCA (Red/White) connector to connect to TV's audio-in port.

Is SMP-N200 compatable with my old Sony Trinitron TV?? It does not have a HDMI slot.... is an HDMI required for function??

If that's the device, then no. Standard RCA cables or Component Video Cables can be used. If your Sony Trinitron TV has Component Video connectors I would use those as they provide better quality video than RCA cables.

My tv is a sanyo ds31590. I need to connect to an acer aspire 5253-bz692 in order to watch netflix. What cable do I need?


You'll need a VGA to Composite or Component Cable. Asuming you have RCA Composite/Component Connections on your TV.

I'll Look something like this:
funnyx_1.jpg VGA to Composite
or
funnyx_2.jpg
VGA to Component
Make sure you TV has @least one of these 3 colored group inputs in front or in back of it. 1. Composite (Mono): Yellow, White or Red
2. Composite (Stereo): Yellow, White, Red 3. Component: Red, Green, Blue
If you don't have any of those then you'll need This Along with a Splitter.
Hope this helps, if it does then please remember to leave Feedback/Testimonial.

What cable do I need to connect my Sony vaio VGN FS640 Laptop to my RCA TV and where does this cable connect to, on my laptop? My RCA TV has a SVideo connection.


To output video from your laptop you will need to use VGA out.

What you want to buy is a VGA to S-Video adapter, making sure that both the VGA and S-Video have male connectors.

This solution will not output audio.

How can I connect my Toshiba Satellite A305-S6872 laptop to my TV?


Check your notebook for "S-Video / TV out" port that has a 7-pin jack instead of a standard 4-pin S-Video jack. Check your laptop before ordering this adapter.

The newer your computer is, the better chance that it comes with either a RCA Composite or SVIDEO connection. Some notebook computers also have video outputs on them. When buying a new computer always look for the words "TV out" or "video out" in the computer description. 

If you only have a VGA connector and don't have an HDTV then your best choice is to buy a newer video card with an S-Video connector. There are other third party solutions out there but the quality is very poor and we do not recommend it. 

The VGA port is the connector that's connected to your PC monitor (the TV like device that came with your computer). This connector is usually only usable for VGA Monitors or HDTV setups. If you have an HDTV this will give you the best image possible. 

If you have an RCA Composite connector on the back of your computer, then you can use that. You may also need to power down your computer and reboot to be able to get the signal. You need an RCA Composite cable that will be long enough to reach from your computer to your PC. Connect the cable to the back of the computer to the back of your TV SET. 

S-Video is superior to that of RCA Composite and will give you a clearer picture. If you have a fairly new TV you should have this connector in the back. You will need to buy an S-VIDEO cable, which you can buy just about anywhere you buy home video products. Connect the cable to your S-Video on the back of your computer and then connect it on the back of your TV

What cable do I need to connect latitude D600 to a hdtv ?


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.

I am trying to hook up my tv with a vga to av(rca) cable,but I can't get it to work.What do I have to do to get it to work?


If your notebook has RCA composite video out, you need to hook it up to TV composite video input jack, usually the color of this RCA jack will be yellow. Why do you not use the VGA port on the back of the note book to feed the signal into the TV's VGA connector, just mke sure to set the resolution of the laptop to be at TV native resolution.
