View Full Version : Latop sound to TV???

02-17-2009, 11:35 AM
I got the VGA plugged in and the laptop screen up on telly fine and usually youd use a headfone jack to RCA and just plug into the audio in on ur telly and its sorted.

well not this telly :S

i plug the headfone to RCA in the laptop and telly and no sound coming out the telly, and the telly is set to PC input.
im thinking its the telly cos this works on my Panasonic telly but no my Samsung telly....the model is LE32R74BD if that helps.

so is it the telly or do i have to adjust any kind of settings on the laptop or telly?

thanks in advance

Okay I do this too. I have a Toshiba TV and had the same problem, I can't really explain it well but go on settings or configuration and make sure the sound is set to PC, 'cause although I was on the PC thingy the sound was set to AV1 for some reason. As you can tell I'm very technical, hope it helps anyway.

Okay, you need to figure out if it's the TVs or the laptop. Plug in headphones to the laptop and if they work the problem is likely the TV settings, if not the problem is likely the laptop settings.
Also, try plugging in an MP3 player to the television with the lead to see if the cable is the actual problem. It's hard to figure out what to do if ya dunno what's causing the problem. I was going nuts when mine went weird but on my tv the problem because under sound source it wasn't set to PC RGB but AV1 or whatever. Probably best bet is to check the manual.

sometimes when you plug something into the headset hole of your comp, the volume setting change automatically.

i know this sounds silly but is your comp on mute when its all plugged up?

I'm impressed you managed to use "telly" 11 times in about 4 sentences.

right peeps, thnx 4 all the feedback/help. appreciated.

but i tried the headphones in the laptop and they work fine.
it cant be the phono lead cos its brand new about a month ago and was working till the other week and the phono lead works on my telly in my bedroom.
an no it isnt on mute when plugged in lol

ive tried fucking about with the tv's sound settings but to no success as the seetings are basic and have no input options etc so the only thing i can think of is that its the laptop?!

i h8 p.c's and they h8 me
