I purchased a new s cable and still no picture

Post by suzonka on Wed Jan 04, 2012 4:27 pm

from my laptop to my TV with an s cable . all I get is bright lines that change ,from wide to narrow or spaced more at times ,however no pictures all I wanted was to clone my laptop and TV, could this mean that I defiantly need a converter box? Cheers Mate

If your TV has a VGA input (that's a blue D-shaped connector with 15 pins), you can try the VGA output on the laptop.

That's a tough one to figure out without trying another TV or another laptop.

Most laptops have a key to switch video from the laptop display to the video output. I think it only affects only the VGA output, not the S-Video output, but I'm not sure. See if you can locate that key and toggle it a few times. It's usually a Fn key + one of the F keys at the top of the laptop.

Bow or Thanks I have the D connector VGA out from my lap top and only the S video input on my TV
I can toggle the lap top screen with fn+ f5 and I do get the settings in a dialog box with a 1 and a 2 how ever I can not get the 2 box or the 1 box to detect my TV so I believe there is some interference out of my VGA to the s adapter in which with a converter box I can go from my lap top VGA out to the converter box VGA in put and the out with the s video cable from the box into my TV in ,it should work and the box box has pin dip switches to change from PAL to NSTC.
