Question about Polaroid FLM-2632 Television

1 Answer

VGA input I have a problem (I think) connecting to the tv as a second monitor with my laptop. The laptop recognizes it as a 4:3 analog display. Is that just how the input works for this tv? Or is there some way I can reset the resolution to use the full widescreen? Thanks for any help!

Is your laptop capable of sending widescreen video to your TV or can it only send 4:3 video?

I need to connect a VGA dell monitor my Toshiba Laptop


HDMI is digital
VGA (the 15 pin connector) is analog.
If your connector has the digital to analog interface it should work, but likely it does not have that chip and thus will not work.

Your description of the problem tells me it may never work as you have it connected. Possibly it might be that the monitor is required to be powered on before the laptop is booted, but that only works in some cases.

I have also seen some work if a 2-step connector is used.
VGA to DVI connector, followed by DVI to HDMI connector.
DVI was the step toward digital that came before the HDMI standard was implemented and was only partially digital. DVI and VGA do not carry control signals nor audio. HDMI carries both those as well as the video.

YMMV but I think it would be cheaper and more efficient to actually purchase a monitor with a digital input (HDMI or DVI).
Without the digital/analog converter interface a digital output device (your laptop with HDMI out) can never operate an analog device (your Dell monitor with VGA input).

Monitor will not recognize laptop.


Did you use the Fn key and either F5, 6, or 7 (depend on brand and model of the laptop) to select which displays (internal, both, external only) for the laptop to use?
You should also try this monitor with other PC to make sure it is not the monitor problem.

HP DV9700-L/side ports- which one will work for second display/TV


I do not know if this is the answer you are looking for, but I know that when I connected my S-video connection to some old crappy big screen TV, I had to set the laptop's second video output to specifically output to S-video. There were 3 or 4 different settings that had to be done. I dont remember the details, all I remember is that the 1. the second video monitor had to be set to the s-video connection. 2. the analog video setting had to be set to PAL or NTSC or whatever they are, I dont know what it is off the top of my head, then there was another setting, I dont remmeber, I think it was the setting to 'clone' the screen so that it just duplicated it. In this case, you might have to set the resolution to somthing smaller that would fit on a standard definition screen.

Low brightness on second monitor using Radeon X1300 video adapter


According to the X1300 specifications here it does support multiple displays. The option to configure the display is found in the Catalyst application. Do you have the latest version of that? You can get it from their website.

Analog


Seeing the word "analog" on your screen means the monitor has recognized video input on the vga "analog" input connection.
Most computers output "analog" vga (15 pin) which must be converted to digital for a flat panel monitor to display the image.
Many LCDs now have both analog and digital inputs.
