Re: Do you know where I can get a new video cable that...
Radioshack has what you need. Take the unit up there and tell them you need a 'B' tip adapter and a 6ft long adaptaplug chord to fit both of the B tips on. This worked for me in connecting one screen to the next.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

This message you get when your computer does not send a video signal on to the monitor..If ti seams to start and the fan is working ..check the cables to be proper inserted (the vga cable ..the one with protection screws on ) ..and if all is in place than it may be the video card to blame .. If you have a pci or agp card installed ..other than the on board video card ..use that ..cause if you plugged it in the on board card ..it will have no signal as long as the pci card is inserted..If the agp/pci one is not working ..and you do have a on-board card ..remove the one in the slot ..and use the on board one until you will get a new card let me know what you have managed to do ..
DVI is a new form of video interface technology made to maximize the quality of flat panel LCD monitors and high-end video graphics cards. It is a replacement for the P&D Plug & Display standard.
you can connect high definition monitor , LCD projector , LCD T.V to a DVI port
There three kind of DVI connector 1. DVI-D (Digital)
2. DVI-A (Analog)
3. DVI-I (Integrated Digital/Analog)
DVI-D format is used for direct digital connections between source video
(namely, video cards) and digital LCD (or rare CRD) monitors
DVI-A - High-Res Analog
DVI-A format is used to carry a DVI signal to an analog display, such as a CRD monitor or and HDTV
DVI-I - The Best of Both Worlds
DVI-I format is an integrated cable which is capable of transmitting
either a digital-to-digital signal or an analog-to-analog signal, but it
will not work transmitting a digital-to-analog or analog-to-digital
How to Recognize These three types of DVI Cable
There are two variables in every DVI connector cable, and each represents one characteristic.
The flat pin on one side denotes whether the cable is digital or analog:
A flat pin with four surrounding pins is either DVI-I or DVI-A
A flat pin alone denotes DVI-D
The pinsets vary depending on whether or not the cable is single- or dual-link:
A solid 27-pin set (rows of 8) for a dual- link cable
Two separated 9-pin sets (rows of 6) for a single-link cable
The computer has VGA, DVI-I (dual link) and HDMI ports. The monitor has VGA, DVI and HDMI but only came with a VGA cable. Some computers have recently come with shielding covering all of the
ports except the one that is currently live. Thus, check your hardware;
the computers I've seen with only one active port, the HDMI port was
active before resetting the video options. So get an HDMI cable (it will provide the best signal in addition). If the DVI-I port is currently live, you should get that cable as well and then change the settings to enable the HDMI port.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (you do not need to get the super-expensive cables; the low end ones will be fine. However a single link DVI cable is not the same as a dual link cable; sometimes using the wrong cable leads to no signal to the monitor.)
I dont have a Solution but I have the same problem with my RCA portable dvd DRC6309. I have connected it to three different tv set and I get no Video but I do get Sound through the tv sets... I have sent an e-mail to RCA costemer support hoping for a solution. If I hear anything back I will post it here...
I bought my RCA DRC6309 about a month or two ago at a Wal-mart supercenter. They no longer sell RCA portable dvd players. That is why I contacted RCA directly.
it sounds like your computer isnt set up to send the signal out. try right clicking on your desktop and selecting a dual monitor setting. It should be found under graphics options or something similar.
PBS in my area says that my cable provider, Time Warner is no longer using the analog signal that contains TV Guide On Screen info. They did this to prepare for digital in Feb. Time Warner says they are waiting for Gemstar/Macrovision to provide a method for the On Screen feature to work. My source at PBS reckons there are over 25,000 cable card TV's that may lose this On Screen Guide. Apparently there is no legal requirement for TV Guide or your cable provider to send the guide.
Users may want to try and contact TV-Guide/Gemstar/Macrovision directly at their toll free number
1-800-386-7380. This may not be a solution but it may be a consolation for users wanting to know why they have lost their TV Guide On -Screen.
You can use the yellow RCA cable using an SVideo adaptor. When using dual displays make sure that display number 2 is adtive. To do that move the mouse to display 2 press the right mouse button and select active. Check extend desktop to the monitor to check the signal and press apply. Make sure you are using either an Svideo or RCA signal.
My configuration: ZONE 1 (living room) DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 1 [S-Video out] -> [S-Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [HDMI out] -> [HDMI in] Sony KDS-60A3000 rear projection TV
ZONE 2 (living room) DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 2 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] Samsung AQUOS LCD TV
Problem: ONKYO receiver stops sending video signal to my ZONE 1 Sony TV through the HDMI connection. ZONE 2 may still receive video. (NOTE: the issue might be related to the upconverter circuitry?)
Symptom: I couldn't see any video, but I could hear the Tuner 1 audio through my ONKYO. An important clue is that I couldn't see ONKYO's on-screen display menu on my TV when hitting the [Setup] button on my remote. But, I could see my TV's Sony-based menus and display options.
Solution: 1. Put all ZONES in Standby mode using the remote. Hit these buttons on remote: [Receiver], then [Standby]. [Receiver], [ZONE2], then [Standby], [Receiver], [ZONE3], then [Standby]. You should NOT see any lights on the ONKYO except maybe one red led near the power button. 2. Pull the power plug out of the back of the ONKYO, and leave unplugged for 20-30 seconds. Turning off any power center it is connected to isn't enough. You MUST unplug the power from the back of the ONKYO for 20-30 seconds. 3. Reconnect the power cord to the ONKYO. 4. Using the remote, set ZONE1 to a video source known to be working. If you don't see video, try leaving the power cord off for a longer period.
I know it sounds too simple to work, but that's what brought the video back for me the few times the video stopped displaying. Hope it works for you.
