Laptop viewing on TV

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.

    How would I do that? I did go into the screen set-up and turn on the second screen. Unfortunately, when it states that I need to reboot, I do, and then I go back to the screen set-up and the request does not hold.

What does hdmi is blocked mean


Hello!
HDMI blocked could mean, that one or more HDMI inputs are turned off. In WD- series DLP TVs it's possible to disable one or more inputs, which are not to be in use, to speed up signal source switching. Most of modern sets are constantly monitoring inputs and automatically recognizing "plug"n"play" signals. blocking any input would not cause TV to shut down.
Yellow(amber) light means: lamp door interlock switch is off or malfunction. green blinking: set is initializing, about to begin normal operation. So: quite possible that lamp has been replaced incorrectly or door is not tight intermittently. Last possible issue: door's interlock switch is bad. Take lamp door off and you will find the switch with blue lever on the left side of the door inside plastic compartment. Push it with your "pinky" or pencil carefully, then ask someone to turn set on. Make sure, yellow light is off, before do so. If set starts normally, observe lamp's activity: it should stay on and getting brighter, while you holding switch. If lamp stops working, while there is no "amber" light, then TV shuts off, red blinks, lamp is bad. I just had to replace lamp twice, due to defective batch of lamps with housing. 3rd time I replaced bare bulb and it solved the problem. But there was no "amber" issue!
good luck,
Alex.

I've connected an S-video cable from my laptop to my TV before and it worked. But the next day I tried doing it exactly the same way and the TV says ''unusable signal.'' What's really odd it that the...


Make sure it is set to a low resolution say 800x600 to start with, also ensure you have the "Other" monitor, ie: TV, activated, "Extend the Desktop to this Monitor" and set to Spanned or Mirrored, under "Display Settings". Also turn TV off, then plug it in from laptop, then turn tv on, then start pc. Also ,make sure you have latest drivers for your card.

I have a dell inspiron 1525. I hooked an HDMI


Video cards are weird sometimes. Did you try having the HDMI plugged in while you boot up the laptop? Sometimes it needs an end device to activate an additional monitor. If that doesn't work, then boot up with the cable unplugged and after the laptop is ready, plug the HDMI in and see if there is any "popups" or notifications that clue you into the issue. Then go to your video setup and check the status of the video adapter.

I am trying to connect my laptop to the Polaroid LCD TV, as i would like to use the TV monitor as a computer monitor (my laptop monitor is broken). So I connect the correct wire to correct places, however...


The simple patch that I found (same problem) was to start by using any old monitor that I could borrow to set up my Dell Laptop.
After getting the Laptop booted on a regular monitor I right clicked on the desktop and went to properties then to the settings tab.
Here I found the dual monitor settings (#2 will usually be dis-abled by default.)
Click on #2 monitor and set the resolution to the lowest number (800 x 600 works well)
Then I clicked on "make this monitor my primary monitor"
As soon as I clicked apply the PC Windows screen appeared on the Polaroid TV screen

Earlier I had set the secondary monitor as "extend this screen to this monitor"
This also worked but I had to "drag the current screen to the right all the way off the
"borrowed monitor" until it appeared on the TV screen. The mouse pointer will be there also.
At first it took a little getting used to but in a few minutes I was up and running.
Hope this helps your situation

Hooking up computer to philips 60pp935217 AV5 HDTV connector?


Hi Roger,

Initially, pls try lowering the screen resolution of your PC. This can be done at the Display Properties/Settings tab and then move the slider of the Screen resolution towards the left, Apply OK. In some instances, you need to also lower down the Screen refresh rates in the Monitor tab of the Advanced Properties.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, then other methods can be considered.

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.
