Question about Sony Computers & Internet

Open Question

GDM-20E01 I have a GDM monitor that I brought home from work. It is hooked up to my HP Pavilion via a VGA to RGB cable. It is not getting a feed to the red gun. It's not the PC because a standard VGA monitor works fine. It took the cable to work and hooked it up to another GDM monitor at that works fine. Could it be the Video Card or is it the monitor itself. I haven't tried to take the monitor back to work to try it. It's too heavy. When I diconnect each color there is a change except when I disconnect the red.

SOURCE: monitor goes black

Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!

SOURCE: VGA Cable Wire Colors

I don't think and RGB cable will work with a VGA cable because the signal in the video card is completely different. It's not just the picture but the scaning and refresh rates are totally different. Even if you could wire one it probably won't produce a picture.

SOURCE: LG 37LC7D Connect to VGA from a PC

Your right. I just had the same "Invalid Input" issue as well and it completely relates to the resolution compatability with any VGA or HDMI connection. Check the LG website for the online manual if you don't have it and see the section on RGB-PC cable. There is a table that incdicates the Resolutions the LG product is capable of displaying.

Thanks for the help.

SOURCE: my sharp tv is pc ready. I hook everything up and

There are a number of things to check here:

1) Verify that the resolution on the PC is set to a supported level for the TV. Usually the TV will show "no signal" if the resolution is out of range or the message "out of range" will appear.

2) You don't indicate whether you are connecting to a desktop or laptop. If a laptop, you may need to turn on the external monitor. This is done by using the function key and either F5 or F6 (the key should have a picture of a screen on it). Hitting this combination will toggle between the main screen with.without the external monitor.

3) Verify that the TV port is selected correctly (AV1,AV2 etc)

4) You will need a separate cable or the audio regardless of the system type. Also verify that the audio cable is in the corresponding audio input jacks for the video option selected.

If you have completed the above and it still doesn't work, please post the details about the computer being used and the exact cable setup that you have and I'll check into this further.


Thanks,
Dan

I have an HP pavilion s5310y slimline. I live in a small home and would like to get a pc monitor that works as a computer monitor. Can I do this with this computer and if so what should I buy that is...


Hi, i've looked up the specifications for that desktop ( the s5310y slimline), and i'd like to let you know that it has a VGA video output on the back. Go to walmart and tell them you need a 'VGA monitor'. Or ask a friend, etc, go on ebay, there are several options.
VGA is getting quite old, and should not be difficult to find. You will also need to purchase a VGA cable to go between the monitor and computer.

Rgb connection stopped working on laptop


Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

I just hooked up my HP Pavilion 9000 Laptop to my Vizio TV and put the TV on correct setting. It is not working on the TV, any ideas? I went on Display setup and kept trying to connect but it says the...


If your laptop has a VGA port, your Vizio needs to have a VGA port too so you can use a standard VGA monitor cable.

If your laptop has a DVI port, you hook it up to the Vizio using a DVI-to-HDMI cable.

And if your laptop has an HDMI port, you hook it up using a standard HDMI cable.

Hope this helps.

While connected via VGA cable Viewsonic VG920 Monitor has an error stating "out of Range" . H. Frequency 157 Khz V. Frequency 59.8 Khz


It was pretty tricky without instructions but trial & error brought me to a successful resolution. This machine comes from the factory set to connect directly to a television with supplied RCA cable. Do that before you connect to a VGA monitor. Using the remote control, press setup and then go into "preferences" and look around for "video" and then to "VGA". Once you click "VGA" the TV screen goes frighteningly blank. The next obvious step is to hook it to the VGA cable and VGA monitor. If your computer is also hooked up and on to the monitor there is no karaoke picture. Shut off or disconnect computer and presto, there it is. <br>

N5350 will not power up with power adapter


Are you certain the panel didn't simply give out? Try attaching an external monitor via the rgb/vga connector. If everything id running, then thst is the likely culprit.
