Depending on the model of video card you have, it would be either the VGA or the DVI connector. Many new cards have one of each or 2 of either VGA or DVI.

Many newer LCD monitors can to plugged into either connector, as they have connections for both. There are adapters that will allow VGA to be plugged into DVI as well.

If you computer does not have multiple outputs, you can only plug in one monitor, however.

If the monitor does the same thing or similar on another computer its the monitor or vga lead at fault
Check first, the security of the connections from the computer to the monitor, these need to be tight to avoid loose connections and therefore signal loss, id these are ok, check the condition of the vga cable, look for splits cracks and bent pins on the end of the lead, check also the socket condition of the monitor, if any pins on the lead are damaged, discard and replace the lead

If the monitor signal is ok on another computer, check the graphics card / connection to graphics port on the computer, could be this is faulty.

Now check the monitor by resetting to factory settings and pressing the degauss button, check also that there are no magnetic devices like speakers near the monitor.

After those checks it still occurs, the monitor is failing and will need replaced

I just moved my Acer 19" monitor and everything went off. I checked all the connections but it is not turning on. any suggestions?


Check the VGA lead, it is possible that when moving the monitor, you damaged one of the pins that connects in the socket on the monitor, remove the lead and also inspect the socket if there is a broken pin inside it remove this and try a new vga lead.

If no pins are broken and / or the power is not even reaching the monitor, check the kettle lead, look for signs of damage to the rubber / plastic plug and the socket on the monitor (assume this one is fed directly from the mains?), If you have been unfortunate enough to have damaged one of the pins that is in the socket you will need a TV repairman to fix this.

Check also the condition of the lead itself, for breaks and whether the fuse in the plug has blown.

After that, your problem will need to be looked at by a qualified TV repairman, as the fault must lie on the board itself

Monitor wont display image. On power up the image flashes on for a second and then goes dark.


Sounds like an inverter problem, but before taking into a TV repair shop, check the connection at the power input socket, also try a different power lead

This lead is usually coloured yellow and looks like the red and white leads you use to connect the tv speaker OUT sockets to an amplifier or external speakers. The input on the tv should be coded yellow also.

Built in speakers


Ya, you have to connect an Audio Lead from the Monitor to the Computer. The audio lead would had been shipped along with your Monitor.

You have to connect the "One End of your Audio Lead in the Audio Out socket of your PC and the Other End in your Monitor's Audio In socket". Thats it.

Got samsung le37a456c us as monitor


This samsung as pc monitor has an easy solution. after trying everything on many different sites:- rebooting, locating tv in settings, all the different sequences of conecting and turning pc and tv on, resolution settings. all this was a complete waste of time. SOLUTION:- i read all these people with the same problem and many had tried laptops and pc's on same tv yet always using same vga lead. so i decided i'd look at problem not in pc or tv but the lead, i borrowed a vga lead from I.T. department and as soon as i plugged this lead into my samgsung tv my pc option was active and i'd not even connected pc at that point. so i know its a total lead oriented problem.

Can't re patch tv with set top box to watch tv


Hi.

Ok here goes.

1) Take airial lead from the wall socket in to antenna in on freeview box.

2) connect short usually black airial type lead in to antenna out socket on freeview. plug the other end of this lead in to aerial in on vcr.

3) connect the other end of this aerial type lead to airial plug on the back of tv.

4) now if you have 2 or more scart sockets on the back of tv set plug in the scarts in this order.
Freeview box scart with tv on it connect to scart 1 on tv set.
Freeview box vcr scart connect to vcr in scart socket on vcr.
Vcr scart marked tv plug scart from here to scart 2 on tv
If you have 3 scart sockets on tv you can connect dvd using scart to scart socket 3 on tv.

If Tv has only 1 scart the aerial leads will stay the same as I have stated,
Freeview must go to scart socket on tv set.
leave second scart from freeview to vcr plugged in so you can record freeview by putting vcr to line 1 or AV 1.
you will need to put tv on channel (0) & tune this channel to the video play a tape that you recognise then go to tv tuning & tune tv untill you see video playing then store this on channel (0).
DO NOT USE AUTO TUNING IT WILL PUT CHANNELS IN THE WRONG ORDER JUST USE MANUAL TUNING.

Now to view Dvd you will either need to purchase A scart switch box. Or have keep unpluging freeview scart from tv so you can plug in dvd .

If your tv has red yellow white phono sockets you can plug dvd in to these, you may need to purchase phono leads.

Hope this helps.
