Possibly you have a 2 channel av card built on your tv have you checked all channels if so Maplins do a s-video to phono adapter that converts to colour

My laptop doesn't have a HDMI port so I have to connect with two cables...I think ones VGA and the other is audio. This goes into the back of my old smaller tv...which is ok but I'd like to route the


Your TV doesn't have video output on either HDMI or Composite video. (There are a few TVs that do have a video out but often that is only available for some input/output combinations. You would need to check the manual but the PC input is usually not available for the video output.)

You could get a VGA to composite or component video converter and direct the signal to your new TV from your PC. One example of the first converter is here: http://www.cablestogo.com/product/29548 . An example of the VGA to component video is here: https://sewelldirect.com/audio-authority-vga-to-component-pc-to-hdtv-converter.asp . There are other models available. A few VGA to HDMI converters also exist. However, since those need to convert an analog output to digital, they are more expensive.

I hope this helps.

(A few VGA to composite cables exist. They will not work for your purpose. They are designed to connect projectors with RCA ports and understand the VGA RGB signal to a computer.)

Vga cable color array i want to connect a pc to analo tv i want to make my own cables


Unless your TV has a component (Red/Green/Blue) video connector, you are out of luck for connecting it using the VGA output. Honestly, it's more trouble than it's worth, and VGA to TV adapters are very expensive. A much easier solution would be to get a video card that has a composite or S-Video output and use that instead. A lot of video cards manufactured in the last 5-10 years already have S-Video outputs on them, so it's possible your video card already has it. There's a picture of the connector on this page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-Video

Even if your TV doesn't have an S-Video input, don't worry - you can get an S-Video to Composite adapter for under $10.

I am getting black and white out put in TV can u please assist


Black and white output is normally caused by 2 things, either individually or in tandem.
  1. If not done already, update system BIOS and video driver to the most current.
  2. Poor detection/continuity in the cabling.
If the output to the TV is not a direct cable connect, but goes thru another device or an adapter, this will cause signal loss and drop in color

How can I connect my notebook to my TV


In order to display PC video on a TV the PC must have a TV-OUT function and interface, or you need a VGA to TV converter box.
If your PC has TV-OUT functionality, your user manual will tell you this. If you have, Google "Display PC on TV" and you should find some good articles on how to connect the PC to the TV, and how to change the settings on the PC. NB. even if your PC supports TV-OUT, you may still need to buy a converter cable (but not a box).
If no TV-OUT functionality, E-Bay lists some converter boxes from about £15. NB. the much cheaper cables only work on PCs with TV-OUT functionality.

HP Palilion dv6000 can't connect to a TV


Hi,

The first thing you need to do is after you connect the cables.. hold down the fn key and press f4. this should bring the screen on the tv. make sure your tv is in the AV mode. if not try with a vga cable.

However if it still does not show up then probably the display drivers are corrupted. reinstall the drivers from the recovery manager > advance options > hardware driver installation.

Hope this helps....
Regards,
Anup

Connecting my laptop to my Samsung DNie 29' Tv


Are you connecting the S-Video directly into the video output port of your laptop? S-Video 7pin? Video output port 7 pin too?

Is there an adapter for the video output port, for your laptop?

PC to TV connect


Yes, there are converters that can take the VGA terminal on your laptop and convert them to RCA or S-Video. As for the black and whit, try using a different cable, otherwise the jack is bad, and you would have to open the case to fix it.
