Question about Computer Monitors

I DON'T GET A PICTURE WHEN I HOOK UP MY LAPTOP TO MY TV MONITOR.

HELLO,

I HAVE THE RIGHT CABLES TO HOOK THE LAPTOP TO THE MONITOR. BUT I DON'T GET A PICTURE ON THE MONITOR.

THE CABLE THAT I HAVE DOES HAVE THE VGA ON ONE END AND THE BLUE, RED AND GREEN ON THE OTHER . IT HOOKS UP FINE.

IS THERE SOMETHING I SHOULD DO IN THE CONTROL PANEL ON THE COMPUTER TO MAKE THE PICTURE SHOW UP ON THE MONITOR.

MY REMOTE HAS VIDEO 1 AND 2 ONLY ON VIDEO 1 I WATCH DVD'S. ON VIDEO 2 IT TURNS PINKISH BLUE WITH ROLLING VERTICAL LINES WHEN CONNECTED TO THE MONITOR.

I DO NOT HAVE ANY OTHER OPTION ON THE REMOTE.

THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP.

    Hello, Since I ask the question I bought a S video cable. I hooked it up, reboted, and I got the screensaver. Beautiful picture. But no Icons.



    The cursor shows up on one screen or the other. When I moved the cursor off the computer screen on the left, it appears on the right of the monitor screen.



    Thank you.

    hi check for vertical & horizontal signal not to put h in v position .so check every symbol on each cable &make sure it correspond with what u are hooking up with. then disconnet ur connection & run ur laptop alone.so if it run fine reconnect ur cable correctly with each one to its symbol. if it dosnt work , check for another cable.

I have my syncmaster 2220wm hooked up to my laptop. How can I get the monitor sound? It is only using the speakers on my laptop...??


Hello a 2250wm is actually a Viewsonic monitor not a Samsung monitor. To get the built in speakers to work you will need to connect the audio cable from your laptop to the monitor audio jack. This cable should have come with your monitor, it will have a headphone 3.5mm plug on both ends of the cable. If you do not have this cable yo will need to get one before you can make the speakers work right. Here is a link so you can get the cable if you need one.

We have our cable box hooked up to the tv and get a great picture but no sound. The previous owners had a stereo system hooked up to the tv and we are simply trying to get any sound at all. We went into...


Ok, I need more verifications:
1) Your TV is Fujitsu Siemens PlasmaVision P42VHA40 Monitor which does not have tuner? If not, please provide the make and model of the TV.

2) What kind of cables you are using to hook between the cable box and the TV? HDMI? Component video (Red, Blue, and Green cables withe RCA plugs)? Composite video cable with Yellow RCA plugs?

3) Are you trying to get the sound to come out off the TV speakers or through the stereo system?

Iwas wondering if i could use it as a tv if i hook my cable box to it?


You can, if your cable box has RGB component or s-video or composite outputs and if you can change channels through the cable box.
RGB will give the best picture.
You could also run a vcr into the monitor and use the vcr to change the channels if the cable box will not do the channel changes for you or if the cable box does not have the right outputs.
You will also need a audio output jack on the cable box or vcr to run out to a receiver or stereo or to the monitor speaker bar

Can't get picture


Hello matthew95765,
The TV is working, the message is coming from the dish box. What you need to do is to determine if the dish box is connected to the dish and that it has signal at the box, because the message it is delivering to the TV is that it is not receiving signal from the satellite. so you have to check the connection at the satellite and at the box because those are the only point that can generate the error you are getting.
I hope this helps,
Thank you,

Picture but no sound on Hyvision LCD monitor MV190


I had the same problem. The speakers are mounted below the the LCD Monitor. There is no internal connection between the speakers and the TV Audio. There should have been a short patch cord in your box having one jack on one end and two wires with mono jacks on the other. Plug the stereo jack into the audio out on the monitor and then plug the other jacks into the left and right side of the speakers (the wires should be marked L and R). If you cannot find the jack, I'm sure that you can find one on line or get one from Radio Shack.

Screen Distortion at certain Refresh Rates


Have you connected the laptop to another monitor and use the same refresh rates that cause the distortion? If the distortion appears on a different monitor, then I would have your laptop examined by a pc engineer, but, if the distortion only appears on the 997DF monitor, I suggest having the monitor checked at a repair shop, also, have you tried connecting the 997DF to a desktop PC, and use the same refresh rates?
