If you used a VGA to component video cable, I'm not surprised. The VGA to component video cable is for projecters with component RGB jacks. The TV use Pr,Y,Pb instead. So the TV can't read the computer's signal directly. You need a signal converter box like this: http://www.cablesnmor.com/pc-to-tv-converter.aspx .

I hope this helps.

(there are some video cards that can output in a mode compatible with TVs. Without more information on your computer, I can't recommend a compatible video graphics card that will output to a TV. These cards are clearly labeled and usually have an S-video port.)

I have two suggestions. First, make sure your TV is set up to receive inputs from the RCA jacks you're plugging the cable into. Second, you may have to change the screen resolution on the computer to something the TV can handle. To do this plug the VGA cable back into your normal monitor. Right click in the field. Left click on properties or personalize, depending on your operating system. Then left click on setting or display settings. There should be a slider bar where you can change the screen resolution. I'm guessing it's probably set too high for your TV. Try reducing it and then plug the VGA cable back into the RCA jack converter. I hope this helps you out.

HDMI [High Definition Multimedia Interface]. VGA [Video Graphics Array]. AV [Audio Video]. By these definitions itself talk to you about the inputs your TV have; and it do not support VGA. Output from PC is VGA. Without a VGA input with the TV, you can't connect the PC to TV. I think I'm clear. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

How To Connect Flat Panel TV to Computer


Hello <br /> First identify your TV's input connections. Most TVs these days have three basic types of inputs. You have your coaxial cable input, the same as your cable box or satellite, an RCA composite input (the yellow, red and white inputs) and an S-video connector. Newer televisions might have Component Video, DVI, VGA or HDMI inputs but the ones listed above are more common. <br /> Identify your computer's outputs. These days computer manufacturers are adding TV compatible outputs on their products so it's easy to have a pc to tv connection when you hook it up. The S-video in particular seems to be popping up on more and more computers, so a PC to TV S video connector might be what you need. You can shop for S-video cables all over the place online. Mostly you will find the usual VGA output that the regular monitor hooks up to (see more later on VGA cables). The newer multimedia computers will probably have all high definition outputs that connect directly to your HDTV, but for now we will deal with what most people have for both computers and televisions. <br /> Find the appropriate adapter for your connections. You may need to get a computer to TV cable so you can hook up your computer to the TV. If you have an HDTV, you may need a VGA to component cable. This VGA to component cable connects your computer to a HDTV and acts as a converter. (And that computer could be either a Mac or a PC.) <br /> A PC to tv connector has a VGA adapter on one end and (usually) a selection of connectors on the other (S-video, RCA composite and Component). The good thing about these is that you can take it from TV to TV and you'll be able to hook up computer to TV for all of them. I highly recommend a wireless adapter. It costs a bit more but wireless is worth not having a big cable mess and not keeping your computer near your TV. <br /> or you can get help from this video <br /><br /><img src="utube.png" /><b><i> You-Tube video "ZCN-nN1orYE" placeholder (do not delete) </i></b><img src="utube.png" /><br /><br />Hope this helps, if so do rate the Tip.<br />

Rgb connection stopped working on laptop


Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

I want to connect my computer to sony wega triniton kvxr29m80 from the hdmi or vga port to the tv's component or 3rc ports. is it possible..i have tried the hdmi to component cable and it does not...


An HDMI to component video cable will not work. These are meant for projectors that work with computers and have only component in jacks.

You will need is a VGA to Composite video converter, VGA to component video converter or HDMI to component video converter. These translate the computer output to the input the TV will understand. Here are some VGA to component video converters: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html . (The exception is if your computer has a TV-out port. In this case, you need an adapter that looks like an S-video plug that will then have composite or component video jacks.) If you want to use the TV speakers, you will also need a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA audio adapter (either M and F/F for an RCA cable to the TV or F to M/M for a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) or cable (3.5 mm M and M/M RCA).


I hope this helps.

(A computer gives RGB output on the VGA cable; the TV reads PbPrY on the component video. Thus you need for the converter rather than a simple adapter. Similar communication differences apply on the HDMI signal.)

Conecting computer to view screen


Hello
Your JVC Tv has AV & Component video inputs only. No direct connection facillty with computer is there. Computers outputs VGA stream video. VGA stands for Vodeo Graphics Arrey. This video stream cannot be connected directly to your JVC set. There are sets, which have this facility, but your set have not.
If you want to connect this set to computer, you have to buy one converter [VGA to RCA out], from open electronic sparepart selleing shops at your town. It will not cost more.
If you have this converter, you can connect your computer directly to the VGA converter, using a VGA to VGA cable, and the output from the converter by RCA connecting wire to TV. In short, the converter will be in between TV and Computer.
VGA to Video converter will look somewhat like this. OK.

How do I hook up my hp computer to my lg flat screen tv


You can use the TV's VGA port which needs a VGA cable which you can get from a computer hardware store. It's called RGB in on your TV. This is also called PC input.The max resolution you will get is 1,366x768 off your PC.

I am trying to connect and play my pc on my lcd tv


It depends on what sort of television you have and the connections that it has available.

1. The easiest way is to get a VGA cable like the one in the image below if your TV has a VGA input connection.
img src="http://www.fixya.com/uploads/images/mariolands_13.jpg" alt="VGA"/>
Notice this is for video, you will need a double audio jack cable to connect sound, if your TV has this sort of input, otherwise you are better of with option two.

2. If your TV doesn't have a VGA connection, you need to get a VGA to RCA adapter like in the image below. Majority of the TVs have a RCA input connection, so if your has one you need to get this adapter and an RCA cable.

 You may have already tried this but try connecting the player via it's composite and component cables. It's possible you switched off your VGA connection in the menu and no image can be displayed. Worth a shot if you haven't done it already.
