Question about Sony KV-36FS17 36" TV

1 Answer

Hooking a computer up using this TV as the monitor

The computer is a Dell desktop Dimension 4700 - about 4 years old. No S Cable hook up but it does have a DVI connector in the back for a monitor. Is there a way to do this? I've had several answers but would like to hear a more expert opinion. We were told we can buy a computer audio output to a stereo cable. That should take care of the audio but what about the video? Is there a solution? Thanks! mamalu5@comcast.net

Whenever the monitor is turned on, it displays for about 3 seconds and then goes black. what to do? It is only about 3 yrs old


One of three things is the most likely culprit.

1. Onboard video card is either disabled or bad.
2. Cable is bad
3. Monitor is bad.

You can check the last 2 relativly easily by hooking the monitor and cable up to another computer to see if they function. if they don't then first try swapping out the cable (i say this first because its cheaper) then swap out the monitor.

To see if the video card is bad try hooking up a different monitor to the system. If the new monitor is not displaying anything then you most likely will need to put a new video card in the machine.

Hi, I have a dell dimension e521 I hook up a old monitor to it and, it work but whei i hook up a new flat screen monitor it said (can not display video


Are you using the same VGA cable. Try to use the same VGA cable which is there is in Old Monitor

Though it can be issue with the resolution setting also of the Video

For that when you plug in your desktop to old monitor bring the Resolution to the minimum and then Connect it to your New Monitor

My dell 4700 won't come out of sleep mode, i've rebooted and changed the internal battery but still no luck


Get some canned air - 2 cans
unplug the monitor and computer.
Use canned air to blow out all the vent holes of the monitor.
Leave it unplugged for about 1 day.
Open the computer case. Use the canned air to blow out the computer. pay special attention to fans and the power supply - actuall blow the air through the power supply vents on both sides.
If you have an add on video card (not on the motherboard), remove the screw at the back of the case, and remove the video card. Reinsert the card and make sure it is tight. replace the screw.
After the day is up plug the monitor back in and use the buttons on the front to enter the monitor menu. Choose to reset or factory settings.
Hook it back up to the computer and boot the computer.
If the problem still occurs try the monitor on another computer or laptop.
If the problem goes away by hooking it up elsewhere - replace the video card.If you are not sure what type to purchase just post back model and serial of the computer.
If the problem is still there after hooking the monitor up elsewhere,
Try changing the video cable or seek rpelacement through warranty or purchase a new one. Check newegg.com for best prices.

Video Card upgrade for Dim 4700 to 1920 x 1200


go to dell's web site.
http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/upgrades/en/segmenter?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~ck=mn

Fill in the requested information and they will give you the details of your computer, and recommended upgrades.

Does your current card meet your needs? The 24 inch should not need any thing special other than loading its drivers, and setting up the video. You will of course be using the "D"
15 connector on this monitor and a mating video cable. These have to be purchased on their own sometimes, so make sure one comes with your monitor.
