When you connect your tv to your mac, make sure the cables are plugged into the TV first, and then plug your mac into the computer.
But a vga to tv converted doesn't make much sense. Your connection should be mini-display from your mac, to an adapter to either VGA, DVI, or HDMI depending on your TV connection type.

Problem connecting quite new macbook pro to the toshiba regza 57" Z3030 LCD TV... doesn't seem to work


You may find that as Mac uses a different standard for VGA output, the sync will be on a different pin not recognized by the TV.
You may need to purchase a Mac to IBM adapter from a computer store.
Hope this helps.

On the MacBook, check the Displays pane in System Preferences to make sure the settings for the external monitor are correct. It's possible that the system is not recognizing the adapter or it has the wrong resolution setting, so it's not sending out any signal that the adapter can use.

Many of the better DVD players and high-end video game consoles use HDMI. You can use one of those as a test signal generator to check the TV.

You may get better results if you use a DVI-HDMI converter, although you would need to get the DisplayPort to DVI cable. This will avoid converting to analog VGA signals and back to digital again.

You have to go to System Preferences, Display and then choose display, arrangement and then check the box mirror images. If you have done that, and it still doesn't work, then I'm not sure what else to do! I hope that helps.

Can I use an Apple M7649 Studio Display with a MacBook Pro


Do you have the black unibody Macbook Pro that was just released, or the silver model?

Since the display is DVI, it will directly hook up to the silver model. If you have the new model, you need a mini DVI to DVI adapter.
