Question about Samsung LE Televison & Video
Running nexflix from acer laptop to samsung tv but it keeps saying the sourse is not connected but it is with adapter cord
Posted by Anonymous on
Atlast I got some help from the right people (Samsung)! I would like to share it with others facing the same problem:
If you are using the D-sub 15 pin jack (VGA Monitor Cable: make sure its 15 pin and NOT 14 pins), follow these steps:
b. Both your Notebook and TV should be switched off when you are connecting the cable otherwise one of them might have a problem detecting the other one.
c. Try Pressing Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depends on which Notebook brand you are using) on your Notebook several times. At times, you will see some signs that the Notebook and TV are trying to connect. Select 'CRT' from list of displays available to you.

try to right click the desktop and choose graphics options, you will have to select the correct output for your setup. i.e. laptop to monitor, etc etc see if that works,...sounds like you have a connection, you will have to play with these settings until it pops up. worked with a similar scenario, sometimes you have to do stufff twice and it works on the second time not the first, electronics are weird.
keep changing the settings in the graphics options until it comes up the way you want it.

check your laptop display resolution before hooking up the avg. the max res. is 1366x 768. at higher resolution the tv will just turn itself off..
please rate my comments :D

I've been online looking for a solution to this problem and couldn't find a fix until today. I just got off of the phone with a Vizio Tech. He told me that some pc's have a way for the monitor to show the screen externally, and that there's usually a button, sort of like the input option on your TV but its an output button for a laptop in my case. It should look like a picture of a TV in and out of each other. Mine was located on the number four key. I had plugged in my wires and put the TV input on RGB. then on my laptop pressed the function key and number 4 key at the same time and what do you know, I had a picture on my screen. I almost gave up on my vizio but love it even more now. I hope this helps.
