You may need to change the resolution on the laptop before connecting it to the tv. The Resolution your laptop is currently running at is probably not supported by the tv. A safe bet that always works is 1024x768 resolution. Then when you have the laptop connected to the tv, you can change the resolution from there! Don't forget to change the resolution back before disconnecting the tv!
