Question about SansuiS3245 TV

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:

Not able to connect my cable reciver to my rca L32HD31R

  1. Connect the RCA Output on you Cable Receiver to the RCA Input on your RCA TV, taking note of which Input you plugged into, e.x. DVD, GAME, etc.
  2. Turn on your Cable Receiver, and your TV.
  3. On your RCA TV, change the Input to the Input you plugged your Cable Receiver into.
  4. You should now be able to change channels using your cable box, and view it on your TV.

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.

did you turn on your external video on the laptop?Usually a combination of keys i.e;FN+ one of the F key, it will have a little tv screen logo on it.Or connect your cable and reboot your laptop.let me know if it helps

Use TV as external monitor from laptop

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.

I have the RCA RT2500 model and I am looking for directions to connect tv, DVD, gaming, Cable Box, etc are there anywhere on line I can find it? thank you

the back should have a squared in box around the inputs like dvd vcr sat tv cd, dvd and sat have svideo and component a/v plugs, the vcr just has component rca a/v ports, tv and cd are just for audio, then you also have the option to hook up optical for dvd and sat. just plug your vcr into the vcr box and hook up svideo or the yellow monitor out plug to your tv, hook in the speakers and turn that baby up.
