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

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.

Missing adapter or plug in connection to 15 balance mointor model 2015

The Balance CM2015 monitor uses a VGA connector,

(The above is for reference only. Not advertising)

A VGA connector is also referred to as a 15-pin D-Sub connector,

This is information on a DVI cable, and DVI connector,

If this is the monitor cable you have, you need this type of adapter,

Now LOOK closely.
This adapter has male pins that stick out, and go into a female VGA connector on the monitor. The DVI side of this adapter has socket holes, for a male DVI cable.

IF, your monitor has a male VGA connector on it, and the DVI cable you have has socket holes, you need this adapter,

If your monitor cable is not a DVI cable, post back with the style it is.
If nothing else post how many pins are in the connector on the cable, and how they are arranged.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I would like to know what adapter (DVI to VGA Cable Adapter) I need to connect to a Macintosh G4. Thanks

Without knowing what Model Number of MAC G4 you're referring to, I can only give you generic information.

If your MAC G4 has a DVI port it is generally the female style.
The DVI connector on the adapter will need to be a male DVI style.

The VGA end of the adapter will be either male, or female. Most VGA connectors on a monitor cable have a male VGA end.

(The DVI end will have the pins sticking out on the adapter. The VGA end will have the socket holes)

Also stated as the monitor cable end will be a DVI male. The port {Connection} on the computer is a VGA female)

Example of a DVI male to VGA female adapter,

Barring that you need the other style of DVI to VGA adapter, (DVI female on the monitor cable, VGA male on the computer), this is an example,

[ Note* The newer VGA connectors are also known as an HD-15 connector.
More information on the Video Graphics Array connector,

More information on the DVI connector styles, and the Digital Visual Interface technology,

If you should find all of this confusing, simply state in a Comment as to what connector is on the end of the monitor cable, and what connector is at the computer.

State whether the connectors are Male (Pins sticking out), or Female (Socket holes)

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.

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.

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!

Need to know if this adapter is compatible with this monitor.

Not in the way you describe. You would need to get a Mini DVI to DVI cable according to your description, they are cheap and available at any electronics store.

Apple 20" display black screen

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.
