Set the TV input to PC (that's ViewSonic's term for the VGA port).

Setting the computer to output to the PC may depend on your OS (XP, Vista). Reboot the computer after connecting the monitor and see if new hardware is found. Reboot again if you have a flickering screen. In Vista, right clicking on the desktop brings up various video and desktop options. Choose Screen Resolution and look for the multiple monitors line. Click Apply and OK after setting your desired output. In the Screen Resolution window you should see two monitor boxes (labeled 1 and 2) if the computer sees the monitor.

If the second monitor is not showing up (no new hardware found), check your BIOS and device drivers to see if you need to enable or update the drivers for the VGA port. Check your manual for the BIOS (often it is click F1 or F2 before the OS loads; it's often tricky timing and I have to try repeatedly). Device manager will have a red x if the port is disabled; the exclamation point (yellow triangle) indicates driver issues.

I realize this is nearly a year after you posted your questions but I hope it will help the next person searching for answers on this TV.

On the tv itself hold down CHANNEL button and hold the MENU button then press the POWER button, You will get into the service menu. from here I went in to the CARNIVAL menus and changed the PW setting then backed out...

I am trying to hook up my Dell inspiron 1520 to my viewsonic n2750w tv. Is there an easy way to do this?


Yes there is... You are going to need a VGA cable and an 1/8 audio cable (for sound)

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1520/en/om_en/pdf/UX8623D.pdf - On page 29 it shows a picture of the right side of your computer. You will hook the VGA cable to the VGA port (Number 8 on the diagram).
The on your tv you will hook it up to the vga port as well. Page 7 of the following document shows a pictures of the back of your tv. You will hook it up to "L" on the diagram. Be careful to not bend the pins in the connector. http://www.viewsonic.com.au/support/manuals/files/LCd%20TV/N2750w%20User%20Guide%20English.pdf
Switch your tv over to the PC input by clicking the "Input" button. Then make sure your PC is sending a signal, you might have to hit the function key to switch the view.

I cannot find hdtv channels on my viewsonic n1930w hdtv monitor, but it does find them on my vizio 22'' hdtv monitor. Am I doing something wrong


Are you trying to get the HD signal from the roof antenna or from cable? when you set the tuner to scan for channels make sure it is set for 'CABLE' if you are on cable, or 'AIR' if using roof antenna.

White screen, no picture.


Base from my experience this problem is 75%(BAD LCD) needs to be replaced with new LCD. The rest of 25% is cable connection loose.
