Broken sayno part

Set won't receive signal. Son says DVI connector has always been loose. Took off back cover. Removed inner metal shield. The DVI female part has three small pins that fit into circuit board for stability. Has two threaded holes at each end. These holes line up with metal shield. When assembly occured there should have been some kind of bolt connecting shield to DVI female part so it could not move. They were never there so part was loose and allowed to wobble and be damaged from plugging and unplugging DVI cable. Need new female DVI part and screws.

Hi wingshooter,

Your son is right. the 2 screw of the male should be fasten
to the hole of the female dvi. replacing the whole part
need careful de-soldering.

However, if the shield is still there and only the hole where
to screw in the male end of the cable, you can get from
old computer discarded around. you only have to remove
the two hex screw and replace it into your DVI female.
Observe that the head of these screws are hex, six corners,
and the hole is threaded. that threaded hole is where to screw in
the screw attached to your male DVI socke

Good luck,

How to cernecft from tower to moniter

Several styles of technology have been used, michealnorth;

1) VGA;

2) DVI;

3) HDMI;

4) Mini Display-Port,

Let's say your computer has a DVI female connector on the back, but you have a VGA cable to your monitor. (With male VGA connector)
Use a VGA to DVI adapter,

Other way around? DVI cable on monitor, but VGA port on back of computer?
Use a DVI to VGA adapter,

[HD-15 is the proper name of a VGA connector ]

Same for HDMI, or Mini Display-Port.

On the back of your computer is the I/O area.
Input/Output area.
It has a rectangular thin metal shield around it, usually.
The I/O shield.

Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, Audio {Sound} connectors, and USB ports, are in the I/O area.

There are horizontal slots at the back of the computer also.
These slots are used for expansion cards. A graphics/video card, is an expansion card.

If you have a graphics card in one of these horizontal slots, connect your monitor to it, and NOT to the I/O area.

Graphics comes from the graphics card now, and not from a VGA, or DVI port in the I/O area.

I have an vizio 32"

This looks like the cables connected to the T-CON board may have worked loose.
The T-CON or timing controller, is what sends the video signal to the LCD (sometimes called LCD controller). The cable connectors on this board have very small contacts. Sometime some of them can become loose because of heat, contamination, shaking etc.
IF you know how to work on electronics or have a friend with knowledge/skill you can repair it.


> Disconnect all cables/cords on the back of the set.
>Lay the set face down on cloth covered flat surface.
>Remove the back of the set.
>Remove the metal shield covering the T-CON board. This board generally located in the center near the top.
>You can wiggle the T-CON cables around (for better contacts) to try and get the streaks to go away.
> Set tv upright so it is stable.
> Reconnect the signal source and power cord. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ON BACK OF SET!
> Use the remote to turn on the set. IF the streaks are gone, then turn set off
and UNPLUG THE SET and remove the input signal cable.
>Lay the set face down on cloth covered flat surface.
> Replace the shield over the T-CON board.
> Replace the back cover.

Resume operation.

IF moving the cable does not improve the signal you can disconnect/reconnect the cables and see what the picture looks like. Be careful not to damage the connectors. They may have clip that must be released first before removing.

IF disconnect/reconnect the cables does not work you can purchase another T-CON board and install it. The boards are relatively inexpensive.

I think the board will look something like this;

I have a Mitsubishi Model# WS55511, serial# 125286. My green power light wont stop blinking, and will not turn on. Can you help me PLEASE! Thank you.

The DM board is the primary reason for this symptom. Mitsubishi is not making this part available anymore. There are 4 capacitors that fail in a power supply circuit with in the DM module. If you want to see if the capacitors are causing the problem, follow this procedure.
Remove the power from the set.
Remove the back of the set.
Remove the chassis screws, (black wood screws) from each side and one in the center next to the ac plug restraint holder along the back part of the plastic frame.
Gently pull up on each tab at each end of the plastic tray then pull back the tray. If any of the wire harnesses are pulling tight, undo the plug connectors. Once the tray is pulled out six to eight inches, the upright shielded board on your far left should be clear of the cabinet housing. There are two screws, on on each side of the shield at the bottom that must be removed.
Once the screws are removed, pull up gently on the shielded board and it should detach from the signal board.
Remove the small screws around the the EII inputs and slide the board out of the shield cover. Once the cover is removed, you should be able to see the capacitors with the tops popped up. These are the ones you replace. Be gentle with replacing them and note the direction of the negative leg. It goes to the hole that has a dotted circle. Once all four are replace, reverse the diassembly. It is easier to install the board first making sure the board is correctly in the board slot before sliding the shield over top of it. reinstall the mounting screws for the board shield , reinstall all the plug connectors that were undone, then slid the chassis tray back in place. Verify one more time the all plug connectors are installed, especially any of the high voltage plugs.
Once the set is plugged in, the green led should blink for about 30 seconds or so. when it stops blinking, turn the set on.
I hope this helps,

How do I replace the lcd screen?

  1. First remove the sticker in the large circle to reveal a screw. Then remove all three screws you can see. The front cover will now be loose and can be removed.
  2. With the front cover removed you have access to the outer LCD screen. This is attached to the phone by a connector, This connector attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift it up, away from the phone, to disconnect it.
  3. Remove the screws in front of the phone,
  4. Now lift the metal plate you have just removed the screws from to access the LCD screen. The LCD screen will be loose and can be lifted out.
  5. You should now have the inner LCD screen removed. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
take care

96 Ford Taurus no turn signals or hazards

Take the turn signal lever and jiggle it, a lot. If they start working, the switch is bad. You can also turn on the hazards and take hold of the button and push it left , right , forward and back and see if they start working. If so, replace the turn signal/ hazard switch.

No signal

You don't specify what kind of monitor, CRT, LCD, or even a TV attached to your system, you're using. It's likely the monitor is set to receive a certain kind of signal (either analog or digital) but it's receiving the other one instead. Before proceeding to the next steps, ensure the connections are solid and the the screws are set tightly and there's no movement.
Get your user's manual and learn how to navigate the monitor's menu in order to get to the setting where you choose Analog (for a VGA cable connection) or more commonly with LCD screens, Digital (DVI).
VGA and DVI connectors differ in shape and in the number and layout of their pins. If you're using a video card with a DVI connector (larger, more squarish D shape, with three separate sections of pins) then your monitor shoud be set to Digital. Else, your connector is VGA and thus your monitor should be set to Analog.
If both are in synch and you still do not get a signal, it's possible the video card has given out its ghost, since if you DO see the NO SIGNAL message displayed on your monitor, the monitor is Ok.
Good luck!

Loose UHF connector

That connector is just press-fit into a metal shield around the set's tuner. It's commonly broken loose by overtightening the cable connection or tripping over the cable and yanking on it. In bad cases it can be broken completely off the set. It really doesn't "leak" anything but can cause a poor picture and allow interference to get in.

The connector can be soldered back into place with the aid of a suitable-size soldering gun. You should be able to find a TV servicer who still makes house calls. With labor and trip charge, I'd guesstimate around $100. The shop I worked for got $72 for this repair, and that was nearly 10 years ago. It is also possible for do-it-yourselfers to make this repair if they have the soldering skills. But even if you pay someone it's still less than the cost of a new set.

Yes you might have, look at the connection and repair if damaged. The critical part is the inner wire that transmits the signal and if this is loose/broken then you can repair (maybe by reconnecting at the connector or with a soldered connection if you feel comfortable with doing that. Wrap the outer shielding to cover and solder that as well for continuity and strength.
