Help! I Can’t See Anything On My TV!

 

 

If you are having difficulty seeing your computer display on the TV, the following trouble-shooting checklist will help you get your Web Cable Plus up and running:

Step 1:


 - Check the power connector (USB cable) to the Web Cable Plus.
 - Check the connections from the Web Cable Plus to the PC.
 - Check the connections from the Web Cable Plus to the TV.

Step 2 - TV or VCR:


 - RCA connections to a TV or VCR must be to the Video Input (yellow) connector.
 - If connected directly to a TV, ensure the TV has been configured to accept auxiliary video input.

 - If connected to a TV through a VCR, ensure the TV and VCR have been configured to accept video input. *

* Often times an input button on the TV or VCR’s remote control can be used to select the video input
mode for both S-video and RCA video connections.  This button may be marked Video, Video-1, Aux, Input, Vid, Line, Line-in, TV/VCR, etc.  On some older TVs and VCR’s this setting is made by selecting channel 2 and pressing the channel down button.  Please refer to the TV or VCR’s owner manual if you have trouble making this selection.

Step 3 - Computer Display Settings (Video Card Output):    

If steps 1 and 2 have not helped you achieve the desired results, the final step on our list involves the simple process of adjusting your computer’s VGA output settings for optimal performance with our system.
