Question about Planar PL2010MW Monitor

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 ?

I want to know what kind of connection cabel i need for a monitor


It depends on what sort of monitor you mean, if it's an external monitor for your Mac it would need a mini dvi cable but if the monitor you want to add on is a vga or dvi monitor you will need a mini dvi to vga cable which can be found here : http://store.apple.com/uk/product/M9320G/A . Or a mini dvi to dvi cable found here : http://store.apple.com/uk/product/M9321G/B . If it is a Mac Pro which does not come with a built in screen and it's a primary monitor you want to connect it would probably have a cable with the monitor. Hope this helps.

Whenever I turn on my desktop the screen just stays black.


It appears that your power supply is good, the startup chime says that the system board has passed self diagnostics. If you have a black screen then the problem is either the video card or the screen itself. Unfortunately it is very difficult to tell which one. You might try to use an external monitor. If it works, then the problem is with the LCD.
To use an external monitor you need a Mini-DVI to VGA adapter, or a Mini-DVI to DVI adapter if your display will use a DVI connection. Either adapter is available at any Apple retailer. The connector on the back of your Imac is next to the ethernet connector, and should be the last in the row.

It depends on what type of monitor it is, but you should be able to purchase a DVI to whatever type of input the monitor has most anywhere.

IOGear (GCS632U) 2-port KVM Switch problem. All functions well it seems after connecting for first time Mac Mini and XP Windows Dell PC except when switching to Mac I get a blank dark screen. Another side...


The IOGEAR GCS632U is designed to work with VGA computers and monitors. Using the Mini DVI to VGA adapter is not guaranteed to work with this KVM switch.

The Mini DVI to VGA adapter can only convert the port, but it does not have an ability to convert the signal from digital to analog when it's connected to the KVM switch.

What you need to have is a DVI to VGA SIGNAL converter. Unfortunately, I don't have a model number handy, so I would suggest to contact IOGEAR, because I'm sure that they already have a work around with this issue.

Thank you and good luck!

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.

Lets see the cableing..

So you have a mac with a mini-dvi slot, you have a mini-dvi to dvi adapter, and then Dvi to vga adapter which connects to the tv?

The mini-dvi to dvi adapter doesn't have the analog VGA signal your tv needs. If I understood right.

Apple's mini-DVI to DVI-D cable does not carry the analog signal coming from the mini-DVI port on the Apple computer. This means that instead of buying a single mini-DVI cable from Apple and using a cheap DVI-to-VGA adaptor when you need VGA output, you must purchase another mini-DVI cable from Apple.
