Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

We just received our I-Inc if281 28" monitor and trying to get it working. We have hooked up the VGA cable to the computer and the audio cable and the power cord. Put the CD in the PC and after we selected English as the language it gave us the option to download the driver for the monitor, but when we click on it nothing happens. We tried downloading the Acrobat 8 but it says we have a better one on our PC. When we try and open up the Manual to check to see what is going on it says we have an invalid input. I have double checked and double checked the cords they are correct. What do I do now?

SOURCE: won't turn on

My monitor died and wouldn't turn on. Found 3-4 of the electrolytic capacitors had bulging tops and a dead short across them. Removed the caps but the short remained. Found the mbr10100 to220 packaged dual diode rectifier had a short across one side. Replaced the capacitors with Pansonic 10,000 hour
units and the 10 amp mbr10100 with a mbr20150 20 amp rectifier which brought the monitor back to normal operation.

The clicking is a sure sign of a bad power supply. Go to our web site and check out the pictures of what blown capacitors look like, Now open the back of your monitor again and look at the power supply board. Check the capacitors, the tops should be flat if hey have any bulging at all then they will need to be replaced. If any are damaged then replace them all because the rest will soon pop too. Be sure to use high temp replacements that will be marked 105c. Do not use caps from Radio Shack they are only rated for general purpose not high frequency use. You can order the correct ones from several places on the internet or we can supply them for you. The values you will need to get are going to be marked on the sides of the ones coming out but will be like 220uf, 470uf 1000uf etc. and have a voltage rating. When you insert the new caps in the board be sure to have the polarity stripe going the same direction as the old one goes. If you have any more questions just let me know.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

SOURCE: Hi I have an HP LCD Monitor and i am receiving a

Have you turned your power settings down so far that the monitor has no time to produce an image, before it shuts itself down?
That setting is usually on the same page or tab as the Screen Saver settings are. If you set your monitor to save power so much that it will turn itself off in a very short time, you will see this kind of behavior.
Try to get to that tab again, and give your monitor more time to be "awake" for you. Right-click on a blank area of the monitor, then choose properties, and Screen Saver, and go from there.
Also, ensure your cables are plugged into the right jack on the back of your computer. The monitor plug/jack is very similar to a serial jack, and you can ruin your monitor by getting these wrong.
Good luck!

Why don't I have any sound coming from the speakers in the monitor? the headset jack works in the front. do i have to have a separate cable from the back hooked into the monitor

Yes. The monitor most likely connected via a VGA port and cable, which does not carry sound. Only exception to this is if your monitor is connected to an HDMI port, which carries video and sound. Your VGA monitor should have an audio input port and you should have an audio out jack in rear of the PC; sometimes on the front, not to be confused with headphone jack. A monitor speaker will not work with headphones plugged in, like most receivers. Good luck

I have a 42 in lcd i hooked my computer up to it the computer sound isnt comeing out of the tv how do i get it to come out my suround sound there is a jack like a head phone plug where i hooked the...

Now i assume you have connected the Computer using a VGA cable ( 15 D pin connector )bobhifi_41.jpgbecause if you had used an HDMI cable the sound would have come by default. The VGA cable only carries analogue Video signals. So you will have to get 3.5 mm phono to 2 RCA cable to connect the sound out of the PC to the TV's audio in socket ( next to the VGA socket labeled audio IN )

If your computer has an HDMI socket, all you need is an HDMI cable. If not you need a VGA cable (the blue cable that usually connects a computer to it's monitor. One end goes into the socket on your TV marked VGA or PC. the other end goes into the monitor output on your computer. if you have a laptop, there will be a vga socket (usually blue inlay in the socket) on the side or back. you will then need to set up the second screen in Control panel, display settings. If using the VGA cable, you will need to run an audio cable from the speaker/headphone socket of your computer to your tv (there will be a 3.5mm jack near the VGA socket) or to your audio receiver.
Good luck.

My dell inspiron 530 shows a block with red, white, green, and read, can't get to the my programs????

That "red white green and blue" block is a color pattern tester. that means the monitor is on, but is not receiving a signal, so its running tests. If your monitor has Digital input and VGA input, you may just need to switch inputs. Look for 1 or VGA if youre using the blue hook up. look for 2 or digital or dvi if youre using the larger white hook up. Some monitors also have 'auto detect'. If you are in "auto detect' bbut the color box is still there, then your monitor is not receiving video signal from the computer. It could indicate a bad cable or no signal being sent by the machine. If you try another monitor, you can see if the machine is working. I would try a monitor setting for VGA-1 first, since thats most common.

Fuzzzy noise then blank screen....

Sounds to me like the power board may be bad on that monitor, espeically since it made funny sounds and usually bad transformers will make those types of sounds.

Make sure you don't have any bent pins on the vga cable and also hook up the monitor directly to a wall outlet to be sure a surge protector isn't causing problems.

Now hook up the monitor and also make sure your computer is turning on and booting up cause if the computer is not running properly then that could cause no video as well.

If you still have no video, then go ahead and hook up a known working monitor to the computer, if you get video with this monitor but not the original then you know that the original monitor is bad. If the new monitor gives you the same symptoms then it could be a problem with the video card or motherboard issue if your not getting any video from the computer at all.

How to connect a sony monitor no tv tuner to a cable box

It's unlikely that you'll be able to use a computer monitor as a television.

Cable boxes have specific outputs, and computer monitors have specific inputs. They generally don't align with one another.

However, your monitor may have VGA inputs on it, and your cable box may have a VGA output (though unlikely).

If you can provide the model number of your cable box, and your monitor, I'll be able to help you more.

DVI input on monitor not working

Contacted viewsonic about this issue- they suggested- have both dvi and vga hooked up to same machine. start with poweroff on both. power on monitor, then power on computer. when you see display coming from the vga, power off pc, then disconnect vga cable, turn off power to monitor, disconnect power cord from monitor for 5 + seconds, reconnect power cord, power on monitor, then power on pc.
If this doesn't work to get the dvi working, (as happened to us) we returned our monitor for a replacement, since it was still under warranty.
