I'm sure this is possible but I wouldn' trust it to a tinkerer. With a good knowledge of wiring anything is possible. I'll go you one better and say that there is likely one already done or maybe in progress at - www.instructables.com - Every gadget they have built comes with pretty detailed directions and most of them have pictures to show actual work in progress. There are many electrical wizards there. If you can't find it by searching I'd suggest contacting an admin. or even the owner and asking about a Collaboration or even some help if you're unsure! I' love to see the finished product if you do it!

Where is the remote sensor located on the Toshiba TN55X81 TV? (I need to locate for placement of IR transmitter.) Thanks!


a neeto hack to do this is to use a electronic video camera (your phone works too) , just set camera to no back light or low light , and using your remote pointed at tv , view the tv thru the cameras view finder , ahhh there it is !!! it twinkles at you !!!

how this works is that electronic video cameras for low light can see wider spectrum of light than human eye they then interpret it and send it to the monitor or screen , and hey infrared remotes are "wide spectrum "

My P.C is running on windows 7 ultimate stopped working and the monitor is showing stromsparmodus message in its center.plzz help to fix this


Sounds like your "stromsparmodus" message is power saving mode for your screen. If you have a video card installed meaning the monitor is connected to a card that is inserted into the motherboards slot and the cable is over in a horizontal expansion area on the back of the case it may have died. You can try to remove it and connect your monitor the onboard video port after removing the faulty one and this should get it to boot. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE an expansion video card installed. Then you will need to probably replace your motherboard. you can try to remove the ram and just try one stick at a time. this can cause the computer not to boot if a chip has gone bad and you have onboard video. also just as a precaution you can reset you bios by unplugging the computers power supply and then pulling the small watch size battery out inside the computer for 15 seconds. and the replace it into the computer and repluging the machine. also check your monitor's vga or dvi cable is properly seated with no bent pins on either end.

I have an hp pavilion dv5. When I power it on the computer starts up but the monitor doesn't come on. And then it does this series of beeps. Beep beep beep. It does that series 5 times


Before you begin
Check the following items before using the steps in this document:
•If you have a flat panel LCD monitor, unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor.
•Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet.
•If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad.
•Disconnect all connected devices except the mouse, keyboard and monitor. This includes thumb drives and camera-type memory cards from card reader slots.
With the devices disconnected, restart the computer. If the computer starts and the monitor now displays a picture, a device is preventing the computer from starting. Update the BIOS to resolve this issue.
Step 1: Connect the computer to another monitor
Connect another monitor to the computer to determine which device has the problem (the monitor or the computer). This step is very important to help you determine if the problem is coming from the computer or the monitor. If necessary, temporarily connect the computer to a friends monitor for troubleshooting purposes.
After the monitor is connected, turn on the computer and the monitor. What happens?
•If the newly attached monitor does not display anything , disconnect the cable and continue at Step 2: Is the video connection damaged?
•If the newly attached monitor displays the first startup screen(s) but then goes black, there is a problem with Windows starting. Skip to step 5 .
•If the new monitor works , the original monitor or its cables are faulty. Do the following:
1.Replace the monitor power cable.
1.Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
1.Replace the video cable.
Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
1.If the monitor does not work after replacing the cables, replace or service the monitor.
Step 2: Is the video connection damaged?
Inspect the video cable and video connectors for damage. Check for sharp bends or breaks in the cable and bent or broken pins at the connectors. With the monitor and computer off, try to straighten bent pins with a small metal tube, like the tip of an empty mechanical pencil or the tip of a retracted pen.
Figure 1: Video connector
If you had to straighten any pins, reconnect the monitor making sure that the video cable is firmly connected and then turn on the computer and monitor. If the display is still blank, continue to the next step.
Step 3: Resetting and updating the BIOS
You can use these steps even though you will not be able to see anything on the monitor.
In case an item was changed in the BIOS, such as the primary display device setting, use the following steps to reset the BIOS back to its default configuration:
1.Turn on the computer and repeatedly press one of the following keyboard keys. Press the key about once every second for 5 seconds after turning the computer on.
◦For HP and Compaq computers that came with Windows 7 and Vista, press F10 .
◦For HP and Compaq computers that came with Windows XP, press F1 .
◦For Compaq Presario desktop computers built prior to 2002, press F10 .
1.Wait another 5 seconds.
1.Press the F5 key. This restores the default settings of the BIOS.
1.Press the Enter key. This accepts the changes.
1.Press the F10 key. This saves the changes.
1.Press the Enter key. This saves the changes and exits from the BIOS.
1.The monitor should display the first screens received from the computer (the logo screens). If not, find and download the latest BIOS update if one is available for your computer.
1.If a BIOS update was not available or the monitor is still blank, continue to the next step.

TV won't show cable input...


Turn OFF, Unplug everything from the WALL, wait a few mins, and replug all back in again. Now Re-setup it all again, Now the doing of this should Reset anything done to the TV.
R - Restore: Restore default settings E - Environment: Change your environment, remove from media cabinet, try different media, try different equipment (TV, router, hotspot, etc.). P - Power Cycle: Power cycle by unplugging your networking equipment from wall for 2 minutes to reset. A - Access this Knowledge Center for useful articles to resolve issues. I - Install the latest System Software Update. R - Resolved: In most cases these steps can resolve your issue.
If necessary, adjust the video input on the TV to match the input connector that is being used to connect to the system. Check that the cable is securely inserted. Try disconnecting the cable from the system or TV and then reconnecting it. There may be a problem with the AV cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PS3™ system. If the video output settings on the system do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system. Then, with only the system and the TV connected, touch the system’s power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution. If the resolution of the video content is not supported by the TV in use, when the video is played the screen may go blank. If this happens, go to the screen for selecting the resolution in the system’s video output settings, and then select all the resolutions that are supported by the TV.

I have no video output on my desktop, a gateway media center GT5034. all the lights blink, showing haddrive activity. I have tried to different monitor and another video card.


Try removing your RAM cards leaving only 1 at a time in a try to boot until you figure out which RAM card is causing it. Sometimes bad RAM can cause issues like this.

If that doesn't work, try unplugging the power from the tower, and then open up the case and remove the CMOS battery which is on the main board (motherboard). It's a little flat round battery. Leave it out for 30 seconds or so, then put it back in, close your case, and try to boot up. What this does is clears the CMOS so it will be set to default bios settings. After you do this, it may show a picture on the screen, and then you can go back into your bios settings and set anything you need to back up. Or you can just load "Optimized Defaults" and then press F10 to save the settings and reboot.

I hope this helps. If not, let me know and I'd be glad to further assist you.

Best Regards,

James

Start up problem


I've checked your media center model on the net and it appears to be a known BIOS problem. Keep in mind that this is most likely video card or motherboard failure. But we can try resetting it Try booting into the BIOS using the F10 key and then pressing F12 and pressing y. The system should reboot with the default BIOS settings. If there is any change you likely have a good chance at fixing it. Please post your results.

I assume you have switched the monitor cable in the back to your video card before booting up. Also you must disable the onboard video and driver too by Start----->Control Panel----->System----->Hardware----->Device Manager and make sure the driver for the onboard video is disabled. You have to also change the BIOS settings by rebooting and pressing F4, F1, F2 or F6 (varies on computers) Once in BIOS, you have to use the arrow keys, Esc and Enter to navigate. Goto the Video Display options and change the onboard video to your new card 256 MB. Collow on screen promts to save it and reboot again. Should work now.
