Most tv's aren't compatible, if it has a vga port then it should be, and on some, you need drivers in order for the tv to be used as a monitor. Keep in mind that tv's aren't designed to be computer monitors, and if compatible, often don't get the resolution desired or expected. This is especially true with models that are compatible that use the s-vid cable for the connection. So, if the tv doesn't work simply by plugging it in with the s-vid cable, then look for drivers for the tv at the manufacturer's web site. If none are available, then the tv is not compatible as a monitor. While at the manufacturer's site, you might also check the compatibility.

How do i repair toshiba satellite a105 ribbon cable repair


Have you tried hooking up an external monitor to it and seeing if it works? I would try that first to rule out a video card issue. If the external monitor works fine, here is a website with pictures on how to disassemble the laptop to replace the screen:

Most laptops have a "toggle":
* output video only to internal LCD screen,
* output video only to external HDMI port,
* output video to both internal & external.

Set the "toggle" to the best value.

Take a look at the checkpoints under the resolution bar. In order to come to your laptops main monitor you have to select "screen 1" and check the main screen check mark. In case you want to use the tv screen as an expansion monitor you have to choose "screen 2" and check the "Extend to this monitor" checkpoint.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

if you are trying to use a lap top to display on a Flat Screen TV, then hook the laptop to the TV with a 15 pin D cable or a HDMI cable(what ever connector you have in common), the switch the TV to PC and then look on your laptop for an ICON that shows a TV set and acomputer screen together. On mine it is hold down the function key and tap the F6 key( Fn+F6) on some computers it is the Fn+F5 key, this switches the display from the laptop out to the TV on to the Aux PC input.

How can i make the laptop screen show through my tv


Hello.
Simply hooking up is not enough. What type of cable are you using? HDMI? analog VGA? DVI? S-Video?
* You should also use [Fn] button in combination with [F5], [F8] or another button that shows monitor sign as well (CRT/LCD if it's in written form). Possibly by pressing several times in order to achieve results.
* In some graphical cards (usually in Intel Extreme Graphics) you should locate icon on systray (near the clock) and right click on it, then choose (Graphic Options) -> Ouput to -> Intel (R) Dual Display Clone -> Monitor + Notebook (if you are using VGA cable)

A solution in graphical details can be found here:

Connecting and recording camera with s video output on 1221 tx


Hi,

The cam setup you're trying in your surgery is similar to the type I often setup in Dental operatories for there intra-oral cameras.

You need an tuner, if your external has S-Video port, you can simply plug into it and use windows media center or the cards software(if it came seperate) to record from the s-video feed.

Then you can hook the S-Video output from the laptop to the TV monitor in question and run the laptop in mirrored mode to show the same image on both screens.

Hope this helps,

Chris

KWorld PC to TV Converter


I had the same problem. It turned out the issue was that I had the VGA Y-cable connectors between the PC and the KWorld box reversed. They look like they should be interchangeable, but they are not. A closer look at the cable connectors shows that one is marked "PC", one is marked "Monitor", and the 3rd is marked "SCAN CNVTR". Once I got them plugged into the right places, I got the screen image on the TV.
