Question about Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television
Asssuming you've got all of the correct hardware to make this work and it's correctly connected, all you need to do is set the DTV input to ON in the ASSIGN INPUT menu, select the DTV input using the mitsubishi remote, then switch the laptop to an external monitor setting. Easy huh . . .
A. Connecting to the TV:
Connect the red, green and blue component jacks to the sockets I've ringed in the picture below. Make sure you are connecting the red video jack to the red socket and not the red audio jack. Don't worry about the audio connections for the moment. You will need to connect your laptop directly to the TV to use the TV speakers as your PC speakers. A 15 pin (D-Sub) cable will not carry an audio signal. We can deal with that later.
B. Switching the DTV input ON:
1. Press the MENU key on the mitsubishi remote to open the on-screen menu
2. Use the DOWN arrow to highlight INPUT ASSIGNMENT then press ENTER
3. Use the DOWN arrow to highlight DTV
4.Press the RIGHT arrow repeatedly to set the DTV value to ON (if not already on)
5. Press the HOME key to close the menu
C. Selecting the DTV input:
Press the INPUT UP/DOWN buttons on the mitsubishi remote repeatedly until the DTV input is selected. (These are below the number keys, next to the CHANNEL UP/DOWN keys.)
D. Switching to an external monitor setting on the laptop.
Hold down the FN key (usually next to CTRL) and then press F5 once. On some laptops this may be F4. One of these should have a small icon of a PC and a monitor on it. Whichever one has this icon is the monitor switching key. With FN held down, each press of F5 or F4 will change the monitor configuration between:
- TV screen ON, laptop OFF
- Both ON
- Laptop ON, TV screen OFF
That's it! Well . . . not quite.
Your TV was not designed or intended to be a computer monitor. It has no PC monitor input sockets. With the correct adaptor/interface between the laptop and the TV, it can probably be made to work, but this is not guaranteed.
I really need to know what adaptor you bought. Most of these are one-directional. You need a 15 pin D-Sub to component adaptor. If you've bought a component to 15 pin D-Sub adaptor, it's not going to work. It's designed to only work in the opposite direction.
Please make sure you have done all of the above and then let me know whether you have video from the laptop on the TV screen. We can then move on to using the TV speakers for PC audio. If you don't have video, then you may not have the correct adaptor or it may not be possible to use your TV as a PC monitor.
If you don't have video, I will need to know which component/D-Sub adaptor you bought.
Hope this helps - I look forward to hearing back from you. This one could be quite a challenge!
