    I want to hook my acer 5735 z to my sony trinitron to watch movies from my computer. I don't have a HDMI cable connected (can get one). It's just a seccondary tv used for the xbox 360 (not connected live). Do I use a VGA connector? Looks like my computer only has a VGA port and no SVideo or HDMI ports. What should I do?

Let me explain on how to connect the TV to HP notebook.

There are two ways to connect the TV to the notebook. One is with the S-Video cable and another one is HDMI cable. (If you computer had HDMI port)

Connecting notebook and TV with S-video cable:

You need to get the Svideo cable and connect it to the notebook Svideo port to TV Svideo port and press Fn+ F4 to get the notebook display on the TV.

For the first time pressing the Fn+F4 keys, you will get the display on the TV and there will be no display on the Notebook.

If you press the Fn+F4 for second time, you will get display back to the notebook and Tv screen becomes blank.

By pressing the same keys again will show the display on both the screen.

Samething connecting with the HDMI cable, if your computer had HDMI port.

If you won't get the display on the external screen even after following the correct process, then once you need to reinstall the display driver.

If the issue persists, then you have to check with another cable.

Note: No need to install any software on the notebook to connect the TV to the notebook.

    Remove Graphics accelerator driver and display driver - one at a time may fix the scrambled video on the TV - - one at a time - - requires restart of computer - several times

    Updating Display Drivers may NOT be the answer to the scrambled display on the TV. Sorry this did not fix the problem.

    Wooooooo! well, I find that you also need a converter box (VGA to Standard TV) The vga signal is NOT compatible to the TV signal. Converters cost fm $7 to $100. Converter input is VGA from Computer output VGA or RCA or Cable or Coaxial and must be powered. - WALMART, Radio Shack, etc

The FN button should be somewhere on your computer. It says FN and has a box around it. When you press it and another key that something on it inside a box it will activate that command.

How to hook up to panasonic tv & sony dvd player

DVD output (HDMI) to HDMI input on TV will transfer both audio and video from DVD to TV. Audio output on TV to unused Input on Yamaha receiver (Aux, CD, etc.). This hookup will allow DVD and TV channels audio playback through your Yamaha receiver. Remember to test any/all new hookups or connections using minimum settings (volume, etc.), and bring up levels slowly for the initial testing.

How do I connect roku 2xs to sony trinitron tv

If your Tv does not have the HDMI port you can use the RCA cables. If your Tv does not have the RCA video/audio ports you will need an adapter from Radio Shack for hooking up a video camera to a cable Tv. This adapter will allow you to hook the Roku to the adapter with the RCA cables, then the adapter hooks to the Tv with a cable just like a cable box. This adapter is also a pass through for other devices like a cable box and or another DVD player. Hope this helps FixYa up.

Hooked up xbox360 to my trinitron, but get no video, only audio.

you most likely hooked it up incorrectly, or you don't have the little tab set to display in the proper format (HDTV/standard) on the a/v cord. Or ou purchased a broken 360. Oh your a/v cord could be busted too.

Hookup problems

The video settings will have to be reset back to the basics (a/v) after being hooked up using the HDMI cords. Simply power on the unit and continue holding down the power button for about 5 seconds. You should hear a beep. This should reset the video settings back to the original condition.

We have a Sony Trinitron and a Sony STR-K670P. We use to have it hooked up to a DVR, but now we went down to basic cable. I can't seem to get sound to come through my surround system. Any advise out there?...

if your trying to use the dvr still your probably not connecting it all properly. make sure that. having a sony trinitron you have alot of connections on the back. if you connect all of the accessories that you have on your tv directly into each input and use the tvs main output connection to connect straight to your surround sound. this should fix your problem. plus you wont have a bunch of stuff hooked up to your surround sound receiver

HD hookups

Generally, hum is a by-product of interference between the AC power cord and wires carrying the signal. Try and arrange the power cord to be perpendicular to the input wire. If that does NOT work, I doubt a surge suppressor has anything to do with the issue. But try that first. Also, have you installed a surge protector? If not, then maybe you could think about installing one. Hope this helps
