Open Question

Plug the monitor into computer, the monitor says "no signal input

When I plug the monitor into the computer, the monitor says "no signal input". This is my mom's computer and I took it home to fix it and when I plugged my monitor in I initially had the same problem but I got it took work. Yesterday, I took her computer back to her and that is when I got "no signal input" and I get no picture on her screen. I am wondering if the connection on the back of the desktop is faulty and can I replace just that part, where could I find the part?

Seems like it. Can you see a very faint image of the screen if you hold your nose up to it?

Elbtax,
Click start > right click on "My Computer" > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > Display adapters > Right click on your device and select uninstall and re boot your computer. Windows should pick up your adapter and re configure it automatically. This method should Fixya!
Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

SOURCE: Gateway Monitor keeps going black

Alicia, Your monitor digital board is OK. The problem is with the power supply/ Inverter board(s) in back of the LCD/LPD Panel that you look at. You will need to question Gateway to see if they have a swapout program where you send them $30-$60 and your old monitor, and they will send you a refurbished (new cold cathode fluorescent tubes w/inverter board installed ) complete monitor. I'll tell you one thing though. Alicia, Don't feel bad abt this monitor of your's failing. You have joined the club with over 2000 others whose CCF tubes and INVERTER boards have with time now fail to light-up their LCD panels. Yes, there are some companys that do repair of these monitors. Try surfing under CCF tubes or FPD repair, or LCD repair. Yes Alicia, you are dealing with a technology similar to the new type of screw-in light bulbs, only the tubes are thinner and laid flat horizontally across the rear of your LCD panel with a reflecting mirror in back of them. Good luck girl in getting it repaired. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol .com North of Chicago 40 miles

wjfarm48, Sure sounds like a power supply problem. How old is it? How many hours of use? Do you understand what a switch-mode-power-supply and an inverter supply is? If not, then here are your options. Check with Gateway to see if there is a swapout program. You box up and ship them your monitor+cash, and they return a REFURBISHED same model with new CCF tubes and inverter/SMPS. When you box up the monitor, follow this lead. "A 3 inch thick layer of breathable air shall be the only thing touching the lcd front panel" Next option is find some local TV/Monitor repair guy who can get parts and or replacement boards/CCFtubes from Gateway. Last but not least, is to repair yourself. Not Recomended.. But do a search on lcd monitor repair or Bad Capacitors In LCD Monitors or Repair of SMPS in LCD/FPD Monitors. Also check for videos on YouTUBE related to lcd monitor repair just for your own info. Here 's what you are dealing with. The light that makes your FPD bright white is generated by Cold Cathode Fluorescent Tubes (2) that require 600-1200vac at high frequency that is generated by an INVERTER which gets 12-24vdc from the SMPS. Almost the same technology is used in the new style screw-in curlie-que Compact Fluorescent light bulbs. Only they call the inverter a electronic ballast. Anyway, thats about all the info I have. Let me know how you make out in you quest to get your LCD up and running again. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com BYE for now.

Dell 2407 Can't get rid of "No S-video input signal" message on screen. How do I get rid of this?


Your S-Video connection is referring to a round plug for a TV input signal. Most computers will not have this connection unless you have a TV based video card. If your using a TV 'monitor' as your computer's video device, their will either be a button on the monitor or your remote to allow you to choose the input signal. If you are using a VGA or HDMI or DVI cable as the connector between the two devices, most likely, the light is referring to one of these, as its video source. You will need to match the cable & monitor source detected to get a usable picture output.

Good luck.
Toby.

No input signal on monitor-not connected to tv-computer works fine except for the no input signal


no input or signal means that the monitor is not receiving any signal from the CPU and if the power light is amber then and the cpu works fine then there could be a problem with the cable connecting the CPU and the monitor ...check the cable.

Searching for signal


DVI and HDMI are the exact same signal, except that DVI doesn't include the provision for audio. Essentially the problem you're having is that you have the monitor set to auto input rather than HDMI input or DVI input. Setting the monitor to not look for any input you plug in and defining the input should cause the hunting wait to be eliminated.

When i plug up the L1975NW lcd monitor what should show up ?


"no input" means that there is no signal from computer or the monitor cable is unplugged. When you first turn on monitor it usually does a self test and then looks for signal. Not connected to PC will give a no signal. If it is connected but PC is off (not unplugged) then it should go into standby as you vid card will be sending a standby signal to any monitor connected. Sometimes the Plug and Play monitors need to register before it will recognize a standby signal from PC, so plug it up and boot up PC. Then shutdown normally, your monitor should go into standby when the PC shuts down.

How do i switch my monitor to vga input?


Plug in the VGA cable to the monitor, and to the computer.

The monitor automatically determines which inputs have a valid signal source.

You can also set the monitor's source of video input to VGA, by going to the On Screen Display menu, and the Switch Video Input option.

Here is the User Manual,

Input not supported message appears when I hook the monitor to my dell computer.


This could be many things:

A. Your monitor is capable of receiving more than one kind of video signal - like a TV - and you need to change the input source (see manual).

B. Your computers video card is capable of outputting more than one type of video signal, and needs to be set for your monitor (Control Panels).

C. You are plugging the monitor into the wrong video port.

Monitor says: no signal input check video cable Even though the computer is on.


Sounds a bit bland but either the monitor has failed or the video card

Only test is to plug your monitor into another system and see if it comes to life

If it does then your video card has expired.

If it is part of the motherboard then the easiest option is to buy a replacement which plugs into the AGP slot

They are dirt cheap unless you are into gaming when the sky's the limit
