display computer video on TV

I have a AKIA laptop Model # T623X It has RCA jack for video output. I don't have a manual. There are a few keyboard keys with blue lettering. There ia a "blue" key labled "fn" and i assume that is to allow use of the blue lettered keys since those keys share F2 through F8 keys. I have been told that one needs first to go to the TV's menu; however, I see nothing in menu that helps. The keys that appear to be video related are: "TV  on/off" ; "LCD/CRT" ;  "Standby" ; "Suspend".
I have attempted to get the laptop's video displayed on TV w/ no luck.  If I had a manual I probably could work it out.
Thanks

Do you have RCA composite Video cable for the out put to the yellow jack on your TV.  There should also be options for enabling the TV under displays settings for your graphics.  Right click on your desktop where there are no icons and select properties.  Then go top the displays tab.  You should be able to activate it there.

Also check your BIOS. Sometimes you have to enable composite (TV) output there.

To change between screen modes, fn+F5 for nearly every laptop. - There are usually 4 different settings for this so press 1 to 4 times depending on. (Laptop ONLY, Laptop + External, External, and Neither)

Also if you have all cables, make sure the TV is set to AV1 or AV2 this is usually where it comes in on the TV
