Most common problem is the VGA cable. Make sure you have the 15 pin VGA Monitor cable.

1. Switch off the TV & Notebook
2. Connect the VGA cable to the TV and Notebook.
3. Switch on the Notebook. Set the resolution to 800 x 600 Pixels (Go to Control Panel - Adjust Screen Resolution). Then go to Advanced settings and set 'Screen Refresh rate' as 60 hz in the Monitor tab,
4. Switch on the TV. Go to Source button from the TV remote and select PC as input source. Alternatively, you can go to 'Menu' and select 'PC' as input source. If the connection is made properly, PC option will NOT be GREY anymore.
5. Press Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depending on which Notebook brand you have)

I'm trying to connect a WDTV to my SAMSUNG LE32R74BDX by HDMI but the HDMI source isn't found by the TV, it simply stays greyed out, should devices like this be plug and play or am i missing something?...


I had the same problem. Had to connect using the composite cable, when to settings, changed it to HDMI. This turn the display on my TV off again. Then plug in the HDMI and it worked!

I also expected it to be plug and play... Hope this works for you...

Samsung tv - archos 605 s-video greyed out on tv


This sounds like you have the cable at the Archos end plugged in the normal video output - you need to plug the round end of the cable into the round socket on the DVR

Monitor no longer working after latop connection


Assuming that you are using Windows Vista, and the monitor is plugged in and connected correctly (with power on!), right click on your desktop, and select Personalise, and then Display Settings. You will see the second monitor greyed out. Right click on the greyed out monitor and select "Attached". Click Apply. The monitor should now be activated.
Sometimes, there are specific graphics card programs loaded on laptops, such as NVIDIA etc.. which may also control the settings.

Laptop to samsung tele


  1. Ensure that the connection is a direct cable connection from the PC to the TV, no converters or cable adapters as these are generally not Bi-directional which is required for a PC to see a TV.
  2. Try turning on the TV, then booting the computer. Some devices require the initialization signal from the computer to activate the port on the TV.
  3. See if the TV input select has an option to search for active signals.
IF none of that helps, post the exact model of TV and computer as well as the type of cable connection you are using.

The biggest stopper most of the time is a cable converter.
