Question about Projection Televisions

2 Answers

I have connected an s-video cable from my lap top computer to my Sony Grand Vega 52" TV. I have scanned through all the video channels and am not finding my computer. How do I go about getting my computer screen to show up on the TV? A good friend is getting married in Las Vegas and they are doing a webcast of the wedding. I am having other friends over to watch on the big screen TV. How do I get it to work?

You are correct. I needed to go to desktop properties and under settings use my second monitor and extend my desktop to it. I also had to change the screen resolution some, but it worked.

This would actually be an issue with the laptop I believe. You need to right click on your desktop and click on the video properties. Then you need to look for the s-video options.

That is just a very general description on what to do. If you would like some more help please respond so that I can walk you through this even more.

I just replaced the bulb in my Sony Grand Vega rear projection TV and the "replace bulb" warning light stays on. WTF?


You need to reset the lamp timer, this location should be in the owners manual.

Lost some stations on my Sony lcd TV.


It is a possibility if you are using a cable tv service, without a converter box, that the cable company has limited the number of station you are able to receive. It seems to be their new ploy to get subscribers to get a box since the digital changeover. I also may be that the TV's tuner memory may have to be re-programmed. Go into the menu and go through the channel scan process and see if they return. If they don'y it may be a tuner issue. An easy fix is to get a cable box!
Hope this has been helpful

I have a Sony Grand wega im getting fuzy purple diagnol lines


Try changing the component cable to your Video 6 and see if you have the same problem. I tried this and figured out that the set top box from Verizon component connections may be bad. I also tried changing to a different set of component cables to troubleshoot. I figure its the box not my TV.
