Question about SansuiS3245 TV

1 Answer

Using TV as external monitor

I bought an Svideo cable with an Svideo plug on one end - to go into my laptop - and an RCA plug on the other end to plug into the front of the TV. I plugged it in and 1) it distorted the display on my laptop and 2) I didn't get any display on the TV in either Aux1 or Aux2 modes. What do I need to do?

    Thanks anyway, but I'm afraid you are mistaken.

    After some more research, I found out what to do. I had to download a driver from HP for my laptop and then "toggle" the fn-f4 keys to get the picture to display on both the TV and the laptop at the same time.

    As for the distorted display on the laptop, this was fixed by going into the "advanced" section of the display options and re-setting the settings.

    All's well that ends well!

How can i connect my laptop ibm R51(2887) AE3 to TV using svideo cable


Hello - It's really fairly simple. You need the S-Video cable and if you want sound a 3.5 mm stereo cable with whatever connector on the opposite end that your TV requires (probably stereo RCA male connectors.)

Here is an illustration direct from IBM about setting up the R51 to TV connection:

When playing a dvd the color is in b&w only


I have had exactly this problem when changing TVs. Initially I had the sVideo out cable from the Bose with a scart plug on TV end - that worked fine on old TV. On new TV, first Samsung, second SOny, got Black and white video picture. To get it to work I used a component video cable - this is a short svideo cable with a an audio cable at the Bose end. It splits into a 3way R G B cable within 2- 3 inches at Bose end. I then plugged rgb extension cables into this and TV and worked perfectly.
I found the answer to this by errr...... reading the BOse doucumentation I reveived when I bought the Lifestyle system 5 years ago.
Good luck

How do i hook my a505 computer to my tube television, i have s video and rca jacks on my television. is there a way to connect it ?


If your laptop has a SVideo jack, you can use a SVideo cable to connect them. Else you can opt for convertor cables that has VGA on one end and SVideo on the other.

When playing a dvd it black and white no color


what output connection are you using? (svideo can cause this if it's not properly supported on both devices)
What format is the video stream NTFS or PAL? some devices don't like one or the other format. This issue could be linked to your dvd player or your TV so please investigate what I have suggested and post back here if you have no luck :O)

Picture is black and white with a dvd movie


If you're using the 3 component cables for video, one is probably defective or not connected well.

Want to hook up old tv model ds32224 to my pc


Hi there
To answer your question;
First on your pc you will need a video card that has either composite or svideo output.
Then you`ll need a single rca cable or svideo cable to go from pc video out to tv video in.
If you want the sound going through the tv as well, you will need a stereo audio cable with 1/8" phone jack at one end and two rca connectors at the other end.
The audio will go from the sound card out to audio in on the tv
Hope this help. Happy Holiday

I HAVE A ZENITH TELEVISION AND I CANNOT HOOK MY DVD/VCR COMBO TO IT. THERE IS NO PLACE TO PUT THE CABLE. MY TELEVISION HAS THE ANTENNA/CABLE PLUG AND THE YELLOW,WHITE,AND RED OUTLETS ON.


your TV has composit video in but your DVD/VCR only has Component video and Svideo outputs ..those are not compatable with your tv .. if you look more closely you might find an SVideo input on your tv .. its flat and not as easy to see as the normal jacks .. if your tv does have SVideo then all you need is an SVideo cable (plus the two sound cables) ... i could check on what you have if you give the TV model number .. othwise you have to have something to convert your SVideo to composit video .. there is a cable that does that .. you can check with radio shack .. if they do have such a cable then one end would plug into the svideo of the dvd/vcr . the other end would plug into the yellow jack on your tv .. hook up sound and it should work ok ..
here is such a cable on the internet ..

or google "svideo to composite" to see lots of options

Plugging my IBM T60 with a VGA - RCA Cable


does the laptop recognize that an external device is plugged in when you connect? you should hear a beep and be given options to adjust video settings. look at your keyboard and look for the picture on one of the keys (either number keys or fkeys) for the display change button. you usually have to hit the fn key and then the corresponding key.
iv had issues with this personally going from video out to svideo to rca video and ended up losing color...adapters are funny things. its possible that the adapter itself either doesnt work at all or just doesnt work with your laptop. wouldnt be the first time.

You should have a svideo plug on the back of the laptop, and if you have a svideo input on the tv you run a cable bewteen the 2 and you can watch it on the tv.
