Out of Range problem with LCD 17 inch monitor

The solution will be that that you need to lower the Video resolution coming out off the Tuner box, it should be in the user manual of this tuner. Right now the video resoltion is too high for the monitor to work, it cannot be higher than the native resolution for the best pictures.

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

How can i use my acer monitor as a tv i lost my manual

The manual won't help you to much in this regard.
This monitor is a standard type that has both a VGA and DVI input.
Normally what you would use with a personal computer.

If you want to use it as a TV monitor you will have some sort of device that outputs to VGA or DVI.
DVI stands for "Digital Visual Interface" and it's preferable over VGA as it should potentially give you a better image.

This means:
A) A computer. You can build your own media TV and watch internet streamed shows like Hulu, Netfix, use as a DVD player, etc. I recommend this route. No more dependance on Cable companies! You just need internet.
B) Find a DVD, and, or Tuner/Cable/Satellite box that has these outputs.
If you want to use Cable or Satellite, contact your provider company and see if they have a box that will output to either VGA or DVI. Might have a hard time finding one of these, or it might cost more then it's worth.
C) Buy a S-Video input to VGA/DVI output. You can buy these for around $40.
Then you should be able to hook it up to just about any device as most modern TV devices will have an S-Video outputs.

Vga Port

hey there!

by default, you cannot connect a tv signal cable like that..mainly because, the monitor does not have a built in tuner :)

what you need to do is get yourself a tv tuner card, internal or external and you're good to go :) you would need your entire PC though..some external tuners allow you to connect without the PC itself :)
