Your monitor should have come with two cables. One is for analog and the other is for digital and is rectangle. Before turning on the computer connect only the Digital cable to your monitor and the video card on the computer. Most monitors will automatically seance the Digital and operate when you start up the computer. Make sure the monitor is ON when the computer starts. Your manual should have instructions that will help.
DO NOT CONNECT BOTH CABLES UP. Only the one needed.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: Monitor

Double check the monitor cable, both going to the monitor, and going to the computer. Ensure it's securely connected. If this doesn't change anything, try rebooting your computer. When the power light flashes, it's in sleep mode and doesn't detect either an analog or digital signal - so either your computer has gone into sleep mode (you can awaken it by hitting any key or moving the mouse) or the cable isn't attached securely. Since your computer is brand new, it's unlikely that anything has broken down already. Another thing to check is to make sure that the resolution in your Display Settings is the correct resolution for the monitor - although it's hard to do this if you can't see what you're doing.

Best of luck, hope this helps!

SOURCE: My viewsonic mo9nitor says analog not digital on

To clarify, you know that analog is referring to the VGA 15 pin video input, and digital is referring to the DVI video input, right? You can't have the digital video unless you use the DVI input, which requires a DVI output from your computer (and a DVI cord of course).
If you already knew this and you mean that it won't switch over to your DVI, then there could be several problems. Most of them being with your DVI signal source (computer). Try booting the PC with ONLY the DVI cord attached between the PC and the monitor. If you have a VGA cord plugged into either, UNPLUG IT FROM BOTH ENDS.

Hi, 12fixlouie here. LCD monitor may have intermittant solder joint on power supply board inside unit. May only need you to resolder it to fix. Locating it is a whole other problem in itself!!! If not into monitor "teardown" and all the other stuff that you will need to attempt a repair, then let me know right away. 12fixlouie

What does dvi mean


Hello figment_of_u,
DVI stands for Digital Video Interface. They are used for direct digital connections between source video (namely, video cards) and LCD monitors. This provides a faster, higher-quality image than with analog, due to the nature of the digital format. All video cards initially produce a digital video signal, which is converted into analog at the VGA output. The analog signal travels to the monitor and is re-converted to a digital signal. DVI-D eliminates the analog conversion process and improves the connection between source and display.

Hope this helps you understand what DVI is for. Thank you for choosing Fixya.

Hi Ichandler422,
This usually happens when the monitor does not recognise that it has been plugged in. Please check that there is either a blue analogue or white digital cable connect to the monitor and the computer.

After starting the computer the screen is black and only displays digital analog on screen and the blue light is flashing. It then displays a box say "check signal digital analog." please help me. Thanx.


This blue light flashing means there is power to monitor bu NO video signal. No Analog or digital Video . analog is the regular plug for PC to Monitor, the other is HDMI digital or other digital. Check signal digital/analog means again: No video signal from PC detected.

Monitor boots ok, then "Analog" appears/monitor shuts off


Does it have a digital port being used? If you are using the DVI port, it is probably digital. Try using the menu to selct the port. If it doesn't work, not sure from here. What is the model number?

Analog


Seeing the word "analog" on your screen means the monitor has recognized video input on the vga "analog" input connection.
Most computers output "analog" vga (15 pin) which must be converted to digital for a flat panel monitor to display the image.
Many LCDs now have both analog and digital inputs.
