Question about LG Refurbished 15 GOLDSTAR LCD LM151X1 (D2MN) Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor not working.

I have got a monitor (from apple) without the adapter, but it has a USB and DVI connector. So I think that USB can be used instead of the adapter (12v). I have opened up the monitor and inside the monitor I found this sticker on the LCD screen "LG Model: LM151X1 (D2MN)". I have connected the monitor to my USB port and DVI but it does not respont when pressing the on/off button. My question is, why can't I turn on the monitor, what can be wrong? (I have no experience with macintosh screens, but it seems that this is actually a screen from LG, it just has a macintosh "look" outside. Regards, Russian

Re: Monitor not working.

The USB connector isn't for video. You plug a USB cable to a free USB port on your PC then plug that into you?re the type B USB connector (squarish with two rounded edges) on your monitor. Somewhere on your monitor you will fine two standard type ?A? USB sockets (rectangular), basically your monitor has a USB hub built into it for convenience. You will have to either get a new video card with a DVI output or an adaptor to convert DMI to VGA. Most of the ones I've seen are $50 or more.

Using with a laptop

Connection the monitor depends on the connections you have out of your Toshiba laptop.

The monitor has both VGA and DVI.

If the Toshiba has a VGA out, all you need is a VGA cable available online, computer or electronics store.

If the Toshiba has an HDMI out, you can connect it to the DVI on the monitor with an HDMI cable and an HDMI to DVI Adapter.

You can also use USB out with either a VGA converter or a DVI converter (go with DVI for the better picture). Converters can be found online at Amazon, you may also need a standard male to male DVI cable to use with the converter.

Dear sir i have a apple cinema display m8149 lcd.i have loss my apple system(cpu) and want to run apple tft with other cpu (intel dvi and vga) tel me the how will conection or explane me where are RGB...

You can run that monitor from a DVI connection but you would need to get an adapter from DVI to ADC and that supplies power to the monitor. DrBott makes an adapter like this called the DVIator ( that should work for you if you other CPU has DVI out.

How do i connect the lcd to my computer

The monitor appears to be DVI capable, (White connector with a grid pattern). You will need to connect the monitor to the computer using a DVI cable (White connector with grid pattern and plus sign shape on one side). If your computer is not capable of connecting to a DVI monitor check to see if the monitor has a Blue VGA (Blue Zig Zag Openings) and connect it with a VGA cable. If your monitor only has the white DVI connector and your computer only has a Blue VGA connector you will need to go to the store (Best Buy, Walmart, Etc) to buy a small adapter that will convert DVI to VGA. If you ask someone for a DVI to VGA adapter they will know what you are talking about. I hope this helps.

I have a g4 computer with s dvi and vga output i also have a m8536 monitior with one cable coming from it . what do i need to make it work

The "cable" you talk about is probably the power cable of the monitor. You will also need a VGA or a DVI cable to make it works.

Just got a new computer (compaq) and I am unable to connect the monitor to the desktop. Any suggestions? Is there an adapter that I can buy to allow me to use the e-machines monitor?

Typically it depends on the monitor and the connectors on the back of said monitor. Most model monitors that came out within the past 3-5 years have a usb port, hdmi, D-sub, DVI, or just a basic Analog connector. If you can identify the Connection on the back of your monitor and a video connector on your compaq machine as well I can Recommend a specific adapter for you. Also check out some electronic websites for further help.

Your Studio Display uses an ADC connector, which is very much like DVI but also supplies power for the monitor and adds USB pins so that you can use the USB on the monitor. In order to use it with something that has DVI instead of ADC, you need this adapter from Apple; there are a couple places that have it $5-10 cheaper, but you may as well get it from the people who made it, Apple probably has a better return policy than anyone else in a situation like this. You hook this adapter into the wall and into your laptop, and hook the monitor into the adapter. Hope this helps!

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.

I've read that aftermarket DVI cable adapters don't work well with this set-up. You might try the Apple DVI to ADC adapter. It's expensive but I see them on eBay or craigslist from time to time at less than half the normal $99 cost.

Studio display m7649 picture will not come up when connected to toshiba laptop

I am not sure how youve manage to connect these 2 items. You did not specify whic Portage you have, but even the most recent only has SXGA video port. The Apple cinema display connector is ADC. APPLE DISPLAY CONNECTOR. No computers on the planet have this port except for apple's. It's basically a modified DVI connector. In order for you to use this monitor with your computer, you would have to purchase a DVI to ADC connector , which is another APPLE only item and selld for $100 new. You would then have to purchase a SXGA to DVI adaptor...It sounds like a costly endeavor, and with a connections your Portage's onboard video card , amynot even support the resolution for this monitor.

Hope this helps.
