Are you connecting the S-Video directly into the video output port of your laptop? S-Video 7pin? Video output port 7 pin too?

Is there an adapter for the video output port, for your laptop?

    Try upgrading the video card drivers.

    If your connecting your 4pin s-video into the 7pin video output port on the laptop directly it should work fine. As it does for my own laptop.

    Comment back for more help if that doesn't work.

    Try using a 4pin to 4pin SV cable, as I had the same issue with my laptop. And I just tried connecting the 4pin directly into the 7pin video output port and it worked. Picture with color!!

How to connect 520 to a tv


In the Quick Reference Guide ()
ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_laptop/esuprt_latitude_laptop/latitude-d520_setup%20guide_en-us.pdf, at page 12, you can see 2 connectors that can be used to connect your laptop to the TV (4=S-Video TV-out connector and 6=video connector).

Depending of your TV (type and model), you can use one or both of theese connectors. For an analog TV you can use only the S-Video TV-out connector, using a proper cable (S-Video to S-Video or S-Video to SCART). For a digital TV (LCD, LED) you can use also the video connector (D-Sub 15 pin), if your TV is equiped with a similar video connector. If not, you must use a converter, but is more expensive.

In all cases you must use a second cable for the audio signal (see the audio connectors, at page 11).

S-Video Connecting Laptop and PC


The best way is via the VGA connector on the computer and by connecting the Audio out on the back of the computer to the RCA sockets on your TV. You will need a 3.5 mm jack to stereo RCA cable for the audio.

How do I connect my dell laptop to my LG LCD TV


1. S-Video – This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA – If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI – Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box – This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
Here’s a graphic I created with some pictures of the various cables:

Why does the s video output on my dell latitude d600 not work?


You must have the correct drivers installed, and you must enable the output as a second monitor but to do that you must connect to the TV IN first. Right, well, IF your TV has a DB15 Female Plug on it then you CAN, connect it up and it will work, as a second "Monitor". OR If the laptop, has a "Composite Video" a Yellow RCA socket, then you can, connect to the TV's Composite IN. & it will be a second monitor. Otherwise you cannot, the VGA signal is NOT compatible with a TV's input. SOME cards have a connector that plugs into the DB15 and to the TV, but they are "Special". In saying that though you can "Micky Mouse" things together and get an output, but it real poor quality, and disappointing results, there are various posts on the net about doing this if you wish.
Remember DRIVERS, you also need the drivers installed & setup correctly in order for the hardware to work. As a tip, When connecting to a TV, always connect like this......First, plug all cables into TV's correct Video input(s). Connect up the Sound, plug all cables into laptop, turn TV ON. NOW, start the laptop, you should now soon see the an image.
NOTE: Some laptops & other devices, have HDMI out, sometimes, the AUDIO is not passed through, the HDMI cable, & the Audio must be run from Audio/Line OUT on laptop to AV IN on TV.Also some laptops have a socket that a multi-way 4/5/6/7 pins. A connector plugs into this, you then can connect to these connections, as you would normally.

What cable do I need to connect latitude D600 to a hdtv ?


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.

Can I connect my dell latitude d360 laptop to my tv?


you need to have the same connections on both my laptop has svideo or vga connector, some have Hdmi which is the newest, but the tv and laptop have to bot have the same connectors, it may be a dvi, or any that I mentioned, then you need a cable for your video, and another for your audio, both the audio and video cables are run to the tv, the only one that has both audio and video is the HDMI which tv's from the last hear or 2 usually do have. Then depending which input the laptop is using which it will tell you where the connection for the tv is, you set it to that input and that turns your tv into a giant monitor
