Unless the TV has a monitor feature, there would be no place to plug in the VGA cable with its DB-15 connector. Your laptop obviously has a female DB-15 socket for its VGA output to which you have connected the male DB-15 plug on one end of the VGA cable. The other end of the VGA cable would then be plugged into a VGA-capable monitor (usually VGA monitors would come with the VGA cable permanently attached). Another VGA-capable device would be a projector which usually has several alternative inputs including the female DB-15 connector for VGA input and which likely would be the most likely situation for use of your cable with its two male DB-15s.

There are several possible PC to TV connections. The latest PC to TV connection is HDMI which is a digital interface carrying both video and audio in the one cable. Another digital interface is DVI which came before HDMI and there are converters to go between the two interfaces. Older methods are analog using VGA (can use scan converter box to change to S-Video), S-Video and Composite Video. All the analog interfaces require the audio to be carried separately. Getting audio from the PC usually requires an audio cable with a miniature stero phone jack on one end and a pair of RCA phono plugs on the other for the left and right audio inputs on the TV. Newer PCs such as the one I am using (Gateway NV5915h) have HDMI which only requires a single HDMI cable to go from the PC to a HDMI port on the TV (no audio cable would be required). You can do a Google search on the term "PC TO TV CONNECTION" for more information on this topic or just click on the following link.

Your tv should have a blue vga port on the back. If it doesnt have one then you cannot connect it.

My Philips 50PF7321D/37 TV picture turns blue after about 30 secs of being on and I cant seem to get it to stop. Also when I turn the TV on it has a black screen with sound for about 15 secs before it

Unplug both the set and a box or receiver if used with the set, remove from power for several minutes and replug all to see if a reboot will help or not.

Normally you need to switch the video output to the 15 pin video port by pressing and hold the FN button and then press the one of the Function keys that has screen symbol on the key.
This will toggle the video out put between the notebook's LCD screen and the video output port.

Pc connected to th42phd7 but no picture, input button doesn't

are you on the right input. To use this set as a monitor you do have to change some settings in the options part of you tv. Also you need to make sure the set is on the right resolution for the PC. check you video options on the PC, and make sure they are the same on the TV set. Also you will not get sound from this type of cable..good luck

I have a dell studio 1537 and i am not able to get picture when i connect my laptop to tv using a HDMI. i have tried everything possible but i cant seem to get the picture

make sure your pc is powered completely off(not a restart but a shutdown). hdmi cable should be unplugged. plug cable to tv first, then turn on tv. Now power up pc and it should recognize the tv. Use projector mode if available on your pc. do not unplug hdmi cable while pc is on or you may have to repeat process.

You probably need a audio cable that runs from the pc audio out to the TV audio in. Radio shack has them so do a lot of hardware store and best buy.

No sound

Yep this seems to be a common problem of the main board acting up due to faulty parts that get old prematurely. The source of this problem may be traced (?) to the power-supply regulation spiking caps in different sections of the main board or faulty discount-caps failing where ever they hapen to be used in the schematic.
The jury is still out...

Sony bravia to my P/C

You need to wire up the audio from the computer.
The 15 pin cable is only the video, next to the input on the tv should be a red and white phono connector which should say audio or line in, get a cable that has a headphone type jack on one end and 2 phono red and white plugs, connect the headphone jack into the back of the pc, should be the green audio out where you would usually connect pc speakers, then the phono plugs into the back of the tv and insert them into the phono ports on the back of the tv that say line or audio in. Turn the TV to PC and thats it.

hope this helps
