You need to convert the component sync signals into a composite sync compatible with SCART. The red, green and blue signals can be connected through as-is.

How to turn on rgb from lap top to tv.


In order to connect your laptop to your TV using RGB, you need an RGB adapter. RGB is also known as component video; it breaks up a video signal into red, green and blue. laptops do not have RGB outputs. However, many laptops have VGA, DVI or HDMI outputs. An RGB adapter connects the single VGA, DVI, or HDMI cable to an RGB cable, which is actually three different cables tied together. INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Connect either the VGA, DVI or HDMI (in the order of increasing video quality) cable to the VGA, DVI or HDMI port on your laptop, depending on what is available. 2. Connect the other end of the cable to the side of the RGB adapter with the single input. 3. Connect the RGB cables to the red, green and blue ports on the other side of the RGB adapter. 4. Connect the other end of the RGB cables to an available component input on the back of the TV. 5. Tune the TV to the component video input you used through your television's menu. 6. Turn on your laptop. The laptop should now display on your TV screen.

Can't connect to the TV. How do I do this?


In the UK (and some other countries) you will need a SCART to SCART cable. Simply plug it into appropriate sockets on rear of TV & DVD player.
Elsewhere you will need a 3 plug RCA (phono) cable. Plug into colour coded sockets on both sets.
Use TV remote 'mode' button to switch from TV antenna signal source to RGB or other source as appropriate

I need to connect tv to hifi


Usually, most TV's have at least one SCART socket with all 21 pins connected. If so, you will be able to buy a SCART to PHONO adaptor quite cheap from places like Ebay. Try the link I have attached below for example:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/GOLD-SCART-ADAPTER-3-x-RCA-PHONO-S-Video-SVIDEO-Adaptor_W0QQitemZ360162931117QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_CablesConnectors_RL?hash=item53db6231ad

Other types of adaptor are available, in the form of a cable assembly, which has a SCART socket on one end and either 2 or 3 PHONO plugs on the other end of the cable.
This may also work for you.

Problems with Lenovo 3000N200 0769-EAG tv-out


My friend, the easiest and by far the best way I have seen is to set the advance timings on your laptop just right and use a vga to scart cable.

Restart your Laptop to recognize again your TV on the system.

Can i connect toshiba satellite a205 to tv?


Yes VGA carries RGBHV--RGB and Horizontal and Vertical Sync information along with DDC info where available.

Now is that port on your TV a d-sub 15 pin standard VGA connector?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.

However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...

I have a scart(out) to rgb phono 3 plus 2 audio when I connect I get a message ;Mode not supported&; I am trying to free up a scart socket on my tv and also improve my picture.


Hi.
I think you are A little confused.
The 5 phono connections are for component this is not compatible with scart.
You may be able to use A svhs lead if your tv & item you wish to connect have svhs sockets & then usu red & white phono for the audio.

Video output from VHS recorder


does your television have multiple scart connectors? Sometimes some models have only 1 connector that will accept RGB signals... Another thing you can check are VCR settings - scart component video output is not "official" and hence you might need to look at some of the setting if you need to enable it. Another possibility is that your scart cable may not have your rgb signals connected (based on wikipedia reference: "not all SCART cables make use of all the pins, often leaving out RGB signals. In many cases there is also no way to see which type of signal that is currently displayed on the TV set."
