Hello
Im trying to connect my laptop Sony Vaio to my smasung series 7 LCD
IT looks like the laptop is seeing the TV as it says that there is another display / monitor connected but it looks like the TV is not seeing the Laptop
I am using VGA to VGA with sound cables attatched but when you flick through HMI / AV / exit channels it will not let me pick PC as its not letting me
I am not getting anywhere
I tried to unplug alll my other items to see if it was that but its not that
Im going to see if my mate can use the cable on his TV
but can anybody help on this
cheers
Keith

The TV is LED not LCD
I think
Hi Keith,

I am assuming that by now you have found the solution. However, just in case you haven't or in case someone else has the same problem, you have to push down the Fn key on your Vaio and hold it down with the F7 key. Hold the two, for about 5 to 10 seconds and you should be good to go.
