Open Question

No signal When my monitor is turned on it displays: NO SIGNAL.However when the pc is disconnected it shows:NO CONNECTION. This seems to suggest it is sensing a connection but just not recieving / displaying a signal It only started when I was forced to reboot halfway through XP home setup and as I dont have another monitor I cant check to see whether the computer is at fault. Looking forward to an answer. Alex

SOURCE: Can't see screen to install diver for HP Compaq WF 1907

My friend just purchase this monitor yesterday. When she plugged it in to the back of the tower she received the same prompt u have mentioned. I was able to repair it because she simply did not realize that I had installed a new graphics card into her pc a few months ago. When u do this, you have to hook your monitor into the area where the new graphics card was installed. You can not plug your monitor into the same onboard card that u have previously plugged your monitor into.
Let me know, if by chance, u did install a new graphics card.
Hope this was helpful :)

If the power light does not turn color and stay's green on startup, it is not a power problem. It is most likely the inverter. If the unit is in warranty, send it out ASAP. Contact HP customer care by email and have the issue logged in.
If in warranty, they will send you a box by FedX second day and have repaired.
This is a 19" monitor and will not be worth paying for repairs if not in warranty.

SOURCE: monitor starts then goes off, no signal

I would check the LCD against another monitor. It does not have to be a LCD, a regular monitor will do.
This will tell you 2 things, 1. The Video card is good or bad, 2. The Cable is sendinf a good signal.
If when you startup the monitor, you see a display and then after a few seconds it display's a no signal message, this is consistant with a Bad cable or cable ends. or Bad VGA card from computer.
Hope this helps. Good luck..
P.S. If you have move the PC, you may want to open the unit, and re-seat the Card. If the card is not making a solid connect on the board, it will display these syptoms.

Display says 'out of range'

Do you remember making any changes to the computer recently?

This seems to be a connection problem or the cable is gone bad.

I would suggest that you connect the monitor to another CPU unit if you have this is to check if the monitor itself is gone bad.
Also make sure that the connection to the monitor is correct.
Also try connecting another monitor to the computer and check.
This issue may also occur if the signal from the video adapter exceeds the scan range of the monitor. The video adapter setting for updating the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor.

Hi! I want to remove the OSD attention from my monitor. How do I manage this? It's necessary to me remove this attention pop out.

OSD popup no signal If you are getting a message that says something like"Check cables" "no signal detected" or something like that,it is likely that your monitor is operating correctly. I would suggestchecking your cables, make sure that the computer is turned on, and if thatdoesn't help, check if your monitor has VGA, DVI, or HDMI inputs. I amthinking that your monitor may be trying to display from the wrong source. This is what a VGA (analog) cable looks like. VGA cables aretypically blue.tgvern_4.jpg

Another common connection that is used is a digital HDMI (left) or DVI(right) connection. DVI cables often have white endconnectors. How your PC connects to your monitor will determine thesource mode you want to use on your monitor. (Obviously this is the cableview but the connection on the monitor itself will look similar.) tgvern_5.jpg

If none of these tips helps, I would suggest hooking the same monitor up to adifferent PC or laptop, and trying once again to get a the display working. Again, make sure that the connection matches the source setting on yourmonitor. If it works on another PC, then your computer may have a videoproblem.
Otherwise, if it still does not work your monitor have a problem displaying viathat connection. If possible I would suggest switching to a differenttype of cable and re-try the above steps.

Monitor displays signal cable disconnected

Check your VGA connector (from monitor to PC), namely the pins in the connector. It's pretty easy to bend a pin, so that it doesn't make the connection. If you happen to do this to the connection present pins, then the monitor won't know that it is connected and will just display the message you are seeing.

Kds model 780 monitor no signal, power button does not work

My monitor does the same thing at times and sometimes shows "No Signal" and at other times the screen will maintain the images but the backgound color switches to mustard yellow. In each of these cases I have been able to solve the problem by unplugging the power cord from the electical outlet for about three seconds and plugging it back in. I have a KDS model 780 LCD.

No digital signal but analog works fine

Seems like this was already answered? But once you've checked against the owner's manual and ruled out the PC, I would suspect the signal / video board inside the monitor. May have gotten a surge or static, etc.
