    I used the 15 pin connector from the Dell D610 laptop to the 50 inch TV. I cannot get the image if my laptop screen to show up on the TV. I am told I have to let my laptop know I want to view it on the TV. How do I do this? I went into settings for the monitor, but was told it is NOT a monitor, but a TV.

  • dmcclain Aug 29, 2008

    My Dell D610 will not hold the 2nd monitor after I switch it on. It asks if I want to activate the 2nd monitor, I say yes, it turns on, it says to reboot, I do, I go back to the set up monitor area and the second monitor is gray (off) again. I still cannot see my laptop screen on my TV monitor.

    My laptop does not support those cables, I use a VGA cable.

The way that is setup is basically a dual monitor setup. THe desktop on your TV is actually another monitor. Drag whatever you want on your tv over to the right from your laptop. That should put it on the tv.

    else do tis
    That probably depends on your video settings. Try to go into your
    display settings and see how the dual monitor is setup. What kind of
    video card do you have? Nvidia? ATI? More than likely it is just not
    setup properly in your video driver. Also, you can try to update the
    driver. Nvidia comes out with a new one about every month.

Turn on the laptop and wait until it boots to the desktop. Connect the S-Video cable to the port on your laptop. Now you have to use Fn+F5 keys to enable TV video output.
Press Fn key and while it’s pressed press on F5 key until the TV output is selected. When you done with TV, set the video output back to LCD using the same Fn+F5 keys.
On some laptops you have to enable TV output in BIOS and connect S-Video cable to the laptop before you turn it on.

Hope that helps.......

Have you tried to press Fn+F5 keys to switch from the TV mode to the LCD mode? Press and hold Fn and press F5 for a few times.
Good Luck.

    Press input on your LCD and go to VGA or PC after pressing FN + F5. The LCD should adjust automatically to the laptop settings.

  • Jaime Hernandez Aug 29, 2008

    If you are using the 15 pin connector connected to your LCD and laptop, the S-Video cable is not needed.

Hi,

You need to press Fn + F? keys on your laptop. The F? would be proprietary to your specific model/version. Normally that F key would have a small monitor icon and would have a different color (say blue or yellow).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Try Fn + F8.

    Additionally, you may want to try and lower your laptop's screen resolution and screen refresh rate to match the capability of the Insignia TV.

If my TV acts like it is locked but is not then what is wrong with it?


When an Insignia TV is locked, it keeps you from watching all of your channels by only displaying a black screen. Insignia TVs are locked from a single button command on the remote control, so it is easy for you to lock the TV by accident. Since Insignia TVs can be locked so easily, it's important to know how to undo this command and unlock the TV yourself. So, unlock your Insignia TV with the push of a button and once again enjoy watching your favorite programs.
• Find the lock button on the Insignia remote control. The lock button is located on the third column from the left on the second row from the top of the remote.

•Stand within operating range of the Insignia TV, then aim the remote at the TV's receiver and press the "Lock" button on the remote control.

• Aim the remote at the TV and press the channel buttons to make sure the TV is unlocked. When the TV is locked, it shows a black screen and does not allow you to view anything else. If the screen remains black, press the "Lock" button again. If this doesn't work, change the batteries in the remote and start over at step .

Change input device to some other like a DVD player. Look for loose contacts in RC jack, cable, sockets. Look for any jammed buttons on TV or on remote.

Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.
If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.

Im trying to connect my laptop to my tv how can I go about?


Have a look the available ports (connections) on your TV.
There can be; HDMI, S-Video.
Look at the available output connections on your laptop. You might have to purchase a cable which connect them together.
VGA connections can also be made from laptop to TV.

Then you have options of expanding your screen or use function (fn) and look for a function key which will allow a multimedia connection to the screen.
With some screens you go to menu and make appropriate selection e.g VGA if you have used this mode of connection.

Give more details of you laptop; will be able to give a detailed explanation.

Insignia flat panel tv


I don't exactly know your model. I can give you a generic type answer.

I can tell you that when you select to have the full screen, it may not work in the mode for the tuner. The reason is that the programs coming in from your tuner are actualy 4:3. When asking for a full screen you are asking for a 16:9 type format. This would stretch a 4:3 picture.

Have you tried contacting the manufacture, or if you know their local factory support place for your area?
