OK. Thanks for the response. That message is telling us that the monitor is getting no signal from the computer. In your case, it sounds like it is working part of the time. So, here are the things that can cause the problem, starting with the monitor and working backwards.
1) The monitor may have an internal problem.
2) The cable connector that goes into the monitor may have a loose connection or be bad. Check for loose or bent pins in the connector plug and socket, and that the plug is seated properly and is tight.
3) The cable itself could be damaged and have a wire that is cut or pinched. Look for cuts or heavy crimps on the cable.
4) The cable connector that goes into the computer may have a loose connection or be bad. Check for loose or bent pins in the connector plug and socket, and that the plug is seated properly and is tight.
5) There could be a problem with the computer that is internal. If there is a video card that plugs into the mother board, you could unplug it, clean the dust and such from the contacts on the card and around where the video card plugs in the mother board and reinsert the video card. Also, the video card itself could be bad,in which case it would need to be replaced. Some systems have the video function as a part of the mother board. If that's the case, the mother board would need to be replaced.

One thing that you can try when it is failing. While watching the monitor, firmly wiggle the cable and each of the connectors to see if the signal comes and goes. You may want to enlist someone to watch while you wiggle, or wiggle while you watch (That sounds kind'a bad doesn't it? <Grin>) But, that could tell us something.

Hope this helps and will be waiting to hear back from you on this.
Ron

No signal


Press the Function Button to open the short cut menu. Locate the Input graphic and press the button for it. Each time you press the button, it will cycle between DVI and VGA input jacks. Allow a few seconds for the display to switch inputs. Make sure that cable is connected securely to the associated jack in the back of the monitor and the computer (or other source). If either VGA or DVI input is selected ,but the VGA and DVI cables are not connected, a floating dialog box indicates:

"No Cable Connect" or "No Signal"

I loaded Windows 7 and now when I turn on the computer, the monitor says DVI input no input signal and goes to sleep. Can you help?


Do you have the correct driver loaded? Are you using DVI output on the computer? Is there a VGA output? If so, try using a VGA cable while you troubleshoot the video issue.

My DVI has no signal but my VGA does! what do i do? Please help me!!!


Your HP2009M monitor supports (3) methods of accepting signals from a computer. They are: 1) VGA, 2) DVI and, 3) HDMI.

You would connect the computer to the monitor using one connection only. Generally the VGA is the least desirable as it is an analog signal. The DVI and HDMI method provide digital paths into the monitor and often perform better. Your computer may only offer 1 or 2 connection choices, so you'll have to choose a cable type that is supported by both the computer and the monitor. The HDMI choice will pass audio signals to the the speakers in the monitor without needing to run a second cable between the stereo audio jack of the computer and the audio input jack of the monitor (located next to the HDMI jack) or to a set of external speakers (unless of course you prefer the external speakers).

The message you're seeing is normal. Once the monitor is connected to your computer, there will only be one active selection; VGA, DVI or HDMI. Since you're using the analog VGA jacks and cable, it is expected that you'll see a message that there is no signal present on the DVI (and HDMI) inputs when attempting to view signals on other inputs.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply, thank you.

I just have a TESTING.... box floating on the screen. Even the menu buttons display nothing. Has this beast finally bit the dust?


Possible reasons for that may be bad cable connection, burnt videocard, or problem in the signal board in the monitor.
So, first check with another monitor if your PC is actually giving a singnal. Then look both ends of the cable for bend pins. They can be easily strighten with thin plyers. You can replace the cable VGA (or DVI) cable to see if it will fix the problem.
If your videocard is OK and the cable is OK, then try to open the monitor. Replace the capacitors on the signal board. Look for blown capacitors on the power board too. Replace if any.
If this cant help, there is major problem with the signal board of the monitor and more measuring is needed. There are buffer elements between the connector and the signal processor and some of them may be faulty. If there are no buffers and the signal goes directly to the processor, entire board should be replaced.
If there are VGA and DVI inputs, you may try the other input with the relevant cable.

Moniter keeps turning off saying no video imput


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Check that the Input signal cable is properly inserted in the VGA socket. Secondly the Primary VGA is properly giving display signals to the Monitor/LCD. Because there are cases in which VGA is the bottle neck of the trouble you are facing.

Cross check and update me with the status,

Best of Luck,

Do RATE the solution, If found Helpful,

Please check whether you are using a DVI (Digital Visual Interface) cable or VGA (Video Graphics Array) cable to the monitor.The monitor will adjust automatically to the requirements of the connected cable.From the question I think you had connected a DVI cable to the monitor.Make sure that there is no loose contact between the ports and the cable.Also make sure that the proper settings on the monitor are done for the DVI cable configuration.

Faulty VGA input


It is uncommon to have a faulty VGA input, although occasionally the pins get bent or broken on the cable. First check the cable.

Have you tried using a different source?

Some graphics cards/computers will only output DVI and VGA separatly and not at the same time. You may have to go into the display settings of your computer and change the output from DVI to VGA.

More details would be great,

Thanks!

Can i connect a dvid cable from the monitor to my flat screen tv hdmi to watch videos from my computer? Thank you Martin


the Flat Screen TV if has, a HDMI input, also has VGA Input.

You must choose :HDMI or VGA, if HDMI The VGA board must Have HDMI Connector, and you connect a HDMI cable to the TV.

The HDMI is a digital signal input/output, VGA is Analog Signal. You must have Signal Converter if you Use the 2 signals
