On the TV, check the menus to see if there is an audio input selector and, obviously, ensure it's set to the right socket. In some cases the audio is linked to the video input selection so if you connect the video using a SCART connector, the TV will ignore the phono sockets. There is often an SVHS connector for video which is associated with the phono sockets and to use this you will need a VGA to SVHS cable. If you're in the UK, these cost a few pouns from eBuyer. Again, make sure the right input is selected on the TV menu (although some do it automatically).

Many monitor TVs have an independent volume control for the PC audio input and by default this always starts off at 0 so you can't accidentally blast your ears. Adjust to taste :)

Can you plug a pair of headphones into the PC socket & make sure you're getting audio out of it?

And finally, do you have an MP3 or CD player you can use: connect it's headphone output to the TV & see if that works.

Have you got the TV set to the correct channel ? A lot of the TV's have a PC input, but no sound when that input is selected, so plugging the audio into another input won't allow you to use it as a monitor and have sound at the same time. If it were a desktop PC, you could use a DVI-HDMI convertor and get the sound in that way, but most, if not all, laptops have analogue 15 pin video outputs.

Im trying to watch movies on my tv from my pc but my tv dont have vga, dvi,and hdmi ports it only has rca and s video.and my pc only has vga. how can i get it to watch movies from my pc to tv.


You would need to get a video card with an S-video or composite output. The sound comes from your speaker output jack (you can get a 3.5 mm stereo to dual RCA audio plug adapter cable for this).

I have an Acer aspire m3200. I tried to connect it to my hdtv, i got picture but no sound using the VGA cord, and got nothing using the HDMI cord. Please help


Hello,
Using a vga cable to connect your laptop to a hdtv is very easy but the cable does not transfer the audio signal, you need another cable aswell. You need a 3.5mm jack to jack cable, one end plugs into your headphone socket on your laptop and the other end plugs into the pc audio socket at the back of your tv (usually next to where you plug in the vga plug).

LG Studioworks 552V monitor incompatibility problem.


Right, well, IF your TV has a DB15 Female Plug on it then you CAN, connect it up and it will work, as a second "Monitor". OR If the laptop, has a "Composite Video" a Yellow RCA socket, then you can, connect to the TV's Composite IN. & it will be a second monitor. Otherwise you cannot, the VGA signal is NOT compatible with a TV's input. SOME cards have a connector that plugs into the DB15 and to the TV, but they are "Special". In saying that though you can "Micky Mouse" things together and get an output, but it real poor quality, and disappointing results, there are various posts on the net about doing this if you wish.
Remember DRIVERS, you also need the drivers installed & setup correctly in order for the hardware to work. As a tip, When connecting to a TV, always connect like this......First, plug all cables into TV's correct Video input(s). Connect up the Sound, plug all cables into laptop, turn TV ON. NOW, start the laptop, you should now soon see the an image.
NOTE: Some laptops & other devices, have HDMI out, sometimes, the AUDIO is not passed through, the HDMI cable, & the Audio must be run from Audio/Line OUT on laptop to AV IN on TV.Also some laptops have a socket that a multi-way 4/5/6/7 pins. A connector plugs into this, you then can connect to these connections, as you would normally. Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Now, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

HDTV as a monitor -- is audio possible?


Hi,
It depends on the TV really.
Does the TV support PC? if it does it will have a D-SUB on the back, it will look like this >>>>

Now if it has one of these is should also support PC audio in. Look for the audio in on the TV, it will look the same as on the PC (probably black in colour)
If you find the audio in port your just about good to go, all you need is mini to mini stereo audio lead like this >>>>>>

Just connect the lead to the green audio out on the PC and the audio in on the TV.
If your TV has not got an audio in port then you will have get some decent speakers for your desktop and use that.



Good luck.

How should I connect my accer pc to sony bravia lcd hdtv


That depends on what kind of output you have on your computer. If you have the VGA output which is for normal monitors as well as LCD then you can connect it that way. if you have a DVI output from your computer which is a round port much like a mouse port then you can connect it to the DVI input on the LCD.

USING MY BLU RAY THROUGH MY TV, HOW DO I TRANSFER THE SOUND?


the monitor cable (HD15) or DVI cable only transmit the picture.

To get sound you need to plug the audio output from your laptop into the audio input sockets right next to the video socket you are plugged into for the video feed (otherwise you will be plugging your sound into the wrong AV channel). Usually these are standard audio leads, similar to a dvd or camcorder composite cable, it may however be a 3.5mm audio lead,but the former is most likely.

Most laptops use a 3.5 mm headphone socket, so you will need an adapter to connect this to the audio cable, these can be picked up easily at maplins or dixons. after you are connected the sound should come through automatically, (remember to turn up the volume on your laptop)

hope this helps
