There should be simple instructions to turn on and off the Lenovo lap top screen when video streaming. I thought you are the Lenovo expert
TV Technician: Master Fix It, Technician replied 2 years ago

Hi, I need details in order to help you. I can only tell you what the issue is once I know that ;-)

I only know what you tell me.

I asked last for the MAKE of your computer that is running the Windows 10?

Also you only paid one time for this service. I am a Technician and these are technical issues, it takes some time and info from you so I can know for sure what is wrong.

Thank you for understanding.

The computer is a new Lenovo laptop. Model is E560
TV Technician: Master Fix It, Technician replied 2 years ago

WHat you can do, is set the screensaver to a dark screen, and set it to come on after about 1 min of no use ;-)

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Master Fix It, Technician replied 2 years ago

That is the only way to make the screen appear off, also you can set the laptop to sleep after a few mins, or even in "Settings", there is an option to TURN OFF the monitor after a short while.

Once set by you, it will do this automatically.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated.

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you and have a great day!

Hi one thing at a time lol;-)

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Master Fix It, Technician replied 2 years ago

Under setting in your laptop's settings menu, you want to find info about the screen settings.

There you need to select monitor, screensaver, and when to turn off the laptops monitor. You cant change the TVs screen to on/ off from there.

Are you there? This is a problem with the HDMI connection. I know all about, the time settings for the screen to go on or off. So far you have not answered my basic question. The screen goes off automatically now when the HDMI cable is plugged into my laptop & TV. The setting the first few days was that the Lenovo screen was always on. Some accidental thing happened to change.
TV Technician: Master Fix It, Technician replied 2 years ago

As fro the laptop turning its screen off, when you connect to the TV , has that always happened?

And when it turns off the screen on the laptop, will it still display normally on the TV?

TV Technician: Master Fix It, Technician replied 2 years ago

Hi I need to know that so I can be absolutely sure that your problem is the Network interface card in the laptop.

TV Technician: Master Fix It, Technician replied 2 years ago

I will help you all the way, but I need to be sure of this, so far YES it sound like you have a bad HDMI board. This is really quite common these days and I have replaced more of these than I care to talk about lol ;-)

TV Technician: Master Fix It, Technician replied 2 years ago

Hi, thanks

You can set the image size for things like text in the laptop to be bigger, but not movies etc.

Only functions of the laptop can be changed to a larger size.
