How to use the TV out??

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to hitch my Tosh T9100 up to an LCD plasma screen.

There's a yellow RCA type TV out on the side but how to you get the laptop to send a signal out through the TV out?

Do yu have to extend screen onto second monitor in display settings?? I've done this but it still dont seem to work??

Sometime you have shortcut keys (Fn + f3 for example) - But I dont have the usel manual to find out.

Any help with thsi would be greatly appretiated.

Thanks in advance for anyone who can help.

Jay

Hi,
The yellow out from laptop to t/v. is only any use if you have the 3 individual phono plugs, on the set. or an alternative 21 pin scart, with 3 phono-inputs. Red-White ( left/Right Sound ) And Yellow Picture.
Yet again it,s possibly lcd/vga button on laptop to switch.
check the laptop has no rear VGA Output. this may be your Only Way, due to low voltage output from Laptop.
The Toshiba 9000s+ can have daughterboard problems also, so i,d suggest trying to hook it up to another t/v set first. i.e portable or similar. Also check that the Laptop, will bring an external monitor on. Finally. check the T/V is correctly tuned in to receive the signal from Laptop.

How do I connect my Laptop Acer 5735 to my TV Sony KDL-40NX700, what kind of connection cables do I require?


If Your TV and Laptop have HDMI Port then you just need a HDMI Cable.
But if you dont have HDMI port. then you need two cables one from video and one for audio.
For Video you either VGA Cable(if you have VGA Port in your TV) or VGA to RCA Cable (Yellow Pin will be for video)
For audio You Need 3.5mm pin to RCA (white and Red for audio).
This pic is of VGA to RCA Cable

No image on hdtv


First off, is the tv set to use the hdmi input? if not, change tv to hdmi input and try again. If still no good, you likely need to tell the laptop to use the hdmi connector. Try this:
  1. connect hdmi from laptop to tv and select hdmi input on tv.
  1. while holding the blue fn key (bottom left side of kbd) press and release the F5 key. This will toggle the laptop between the laptop lcd display, external connectors (vga/hdmi), or both simultaneously. Let me know if this works or not.....

You have TWO OUTPUT from the laptop: VGA and RCA Video Out (Yellow connector). Now match one of these in your plasma TV and you are on your way to fame. Remember to select the video source on your TV, possibly A/V input.

2650 to television


Dell specs a S-Video to RCA(Yellow) TV Output Cable Kit (part number 7309P) for your unit. For the audio you would simply use an audio line out from your laptop speaker plug to RCA audio in (red & white) on your TV.

Good luck!

No composite video output


Hi,

To activate the TV output, the Fn + F? would have to be pressed. This is to cycle through the choices such as LCD, TV + LCD or TV olny. F? would be the function key with the small monitor icon. Additionally, it is required that the Screen Resolution in the Settings tab of the Display Properties be lowered down to match the capacity of the TV. Most/regular TVs can only display 640 X 480 or 800 X 600. In some cases, it would also be necessary to lower down the Screen Refresh Rate sometimes as low as 60 Hz.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.
