Question about Planar PL2010MW Monitor

1 Answer

Mac mini and Planar PL2010MW contectivity

I purchased a Planar PL2010MW monitor for my Mother's Mac mini. I can not get a signal using the DVI connection.  There is a hint of the spinning apple then the screen goes dark after startup.  I have attached the DVI cable directly between the two components. Where did I go wrong?

    The old monitor uses a DVI to VGA adapter (its an older and smaller monitor).

    Does it still work with the other monitor and does the other monitor use DVI?

Have you tried changing the display resolution to lower at first so you can at least get a signal ?

Need to connect hp pavilion vf15 monitor to mac computer


First of all, before you look which one to buy, you need to find out which Video Port does you Mac has, i.e. VGA or DVI or Mini DVI or HDMI. Once it's confirmed, you have to find out the same with your monitor, so that you can buy the appropriate cable.

Pictures Below:
1. VGA

2. DVI

Planar PE191M monitor display will not stay on


iv come across this before sometimes people can see that the monitor is actually working but the light has gone out id say bad capacitors that are breaking down. if you want to DIY it take it apart and find the light pcb usually built on the power supply pcb and look for bulging or swolen capacitors this happens alot in my opinion. if you can DIY it get the same caps or same value but better ones. I might be wrong but worth a look

My apple mini mac (no intel) hook up mag monitor 780


The Mac Mini has an adapter plug, DVI to VGA.
If you use the adapter and a VGA cable to the monitor there is not a noticeable difference.

Just be sure to know the resolution maximums of the MAG monitor before you think its the Mac.
