    Whenever I try using my PC I get display issues. The image appears too far to the left. I can correct the issue by adjusting the screen (slightly to the right, adjust the phase a little). In addition to this, I also have to correct the same issue whenever the computer loads up a program. The screen goes back to displaying too far to the left and cutting off the image.* Recently, I bought a game and now the screen cannot be corrected via the menu system. The game is totally unplayable because the screen goes to far to the left. What is the problem and how do I resolve it?

    * Note: Even if I adjust the screen to dot-to-dot or a smaller setting (4:3), the image is still cut up. The "display" is in the center, but the image is too far to the left. Around the 4:3 display is black (like you would expect) but the display is half black with half an image (with only half the original image showing).

    I'm using a PC monitor connection (VGA Monitor cable to connect the PC to the TV's monitor port; not HDMI Cable)

    Regards,

    Gary.

Hi, I'm afraid that not only a cable is needed but an analog (vga) to digital (dvi) converter/scaler as well. The iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12 can hook up to a PC using the DVI-I connection only. As you said, your computer has the standard 1D15 pin VGA connector. Another possibility is if your video card has a composite video output (normally a color yellow RCA female) or an S-Video output which will both connect direct to your iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12. For the RCA connection all you need is an ordinary RCA to RCA shielded wire cable and for the S-Video, an S to S Video cable will work. There is of course the question about the quality or the resolution. Good luck and hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

    Hi again,
    1. What is a converter/scaler?
    The converter/scaler converts Analog VGA or Component Video to DVI-I. The purpose is to retain if not improve on the display quality. An example is shown athttp://www2.dvigear.com/vgatodvicosc.htm...

    2. Do I need that as well as the vga to dvi?
    Yes if your iLOi is pure digital;
    No if it is capable of analog inputs;
    You can try with cable only (& no converter/scaler)that are VGA at one end and DVI at the other end. You can try something like what is featured athttp://www.datapro.net/products/dvi-to-v...

    3. Also I lost the owners manual so you know where I can download one?
    If you purchased your unit from WalMart, sorry no.
    It if was from Europe you can try www.ilo.com

    Cheers.

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.

What kind of wire do I need to connect my samsung laptop to panasonic viera hd 3d plasma tv?


Most TVs will have HDMI and RCA component and composite jacks. Some TVs will also have a VGA port. Your laptop will have a VGA port. (If the laptop is fairly new, it may also have an HDMI port.)

Not all TVs will support an HDMI signal from a computer, so the VGA signal is often better. However, that limits you to SD (anything with HDCP will fail.)

Very few TVs ship with the HDMI or component cables. However, there are some vendors who do package the HDMI cable with their TV. Without knowing which exact model of TV and laptop, I can only make a few suggestions. I know that the TCP42ST30 (Plasma 42") doesn't have a VGA port.

Look at your laptop for any external monitor port. VGA ports are generally blue female ports with 15 holes (D-Sub). If your TV has a matching VGA port, get a standard VGA monitor cable.

If you have the VGA port on the laptop but not on the TV, you can try a converting from VGA to HDMI. (You may need a DVI to VGA adapter and either a DVI to HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI adapter.) Note: this gives an analog signal (RGB format) to the TV. You'll also need to make sure that your VGA port is active (in the BIOS for some computers) and then set your computer to send the signal to the external monitor. It is best to turn off both the computer and the TV before connecting the two. Then turn on the TV and set it to the correct input before turning on the computer. (In Windows 7, I set the video signal for the external monitor by right clicking on the desktop and selecting Graphics Properties. Set the signal to the external monitor and click Apply. Then click OK (in the external monitor's screen).)

If this doesn't work, you need a VGA to component video converter. (Not a VGA to component video cable - those are for projectors that read the RGB signal.) See http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html .

Some laptops come with an HDMI, mini-HDMI or a DisplayPort option. For the latter two, you will need the appropriate cable with that end and the HDMI connector on the other. Then connect the TV and the computer as described above. (Note: my TVs accept a computer signal at the HDMI port labeled HDMI/DVI. However, you need to make sure that your TV understands this signal. It isn't the same format as that from a set-top box. My laptop has VGA and HDMI out; the desktops have VGA, DVI and HDMI (on one).)

If you add a comment with the model of your TV and laptop, I'll be glad to give you more specific options to connect the TV and the computer.

I hope this helps.

(A DVI port is a digital video out option with ~21 pins and is usually white.)

How to use rca entertainment series 32 inch as pc monitor


Assuming that your RCA 32 inch tv has an HDMI or VGA input, all you need is the proper cable to connect the two units. If your computer has a VGA out (blue female connector) and so does your TV, you would need a male to male VGA cable. If your computer has a DVI out (white connector), you would need to purchase a DVI to HDMI cable. The combinations can me played around with depending on what connectors are on the back of the TV and what you have as an output for your PC.

Emerson 42 inch television flat screen HDTV: i connected a DVI to HDMI cable to dell computer screen to television in order to display computer screen to it but the signal isn't working, how do i...


Your Dell Monitor does not have a video output. The DVI/HDMI cable needs to run from the DVI-Out of you computer tower directly to the TVs HDMI input, ideally one with a red/white analog audio input next to it, because that cable only provides a video signal. If you don't have a DVI out on your computer, perhaps your TV has a VGA input. If your computer/video card only has one monitor connector, then you can only connect the Monitor OR the TV.

We have a panasonic 32"inch lcd tv.we want to


hdmi Ports Qty 3 port(s) PC Interface VGA (HD-15) HDCP Compatible Yes

I read your tv has 3 hdmi ports and a PC input.

if your pc has hdmi out - the you use a hdmi cable from the pc to the tv on one of the hdmi inputs.

if your pc has a 15pin vga cable you can unplug from your PC monitor (or go buy a VGA cable if you want to keep one on the tv and one on your pc monitor - or if you are using a laptop).

when you unplug the computer from the monitor .. check the pins - should look to be about 15 pins in the connector. it that will plug into the tv- then you are using a vga cable. if it will not plug into the tv pc input .. don't force it. It could be a dvi connector . .take the cable off the PC and to radio shack and they can fix you up (you need a dvi to vga cable - not likely, but possible)

I always turn off a pc before disconnecting monitors - and plug into the other display before turning the pc back on.

Good luck.
Bill.

I HAVE A LG Full HD 1080p HDMI W2753V-PF 27-inch i was told my my tech that the monitor needs an inverter...Where can i get one and what is the part number ..if anyone could help me...


Well, you monitor has several input interfaces/connectors like;
  • D-Sub (Vga connector)
  • DVI
  • HDMI
If you are connecting this monitor to a computer, then you can use the Vga cable which came with the package. You can see the Vga cable here.. 3d8a2c8.jpg
You have to plug in either the terminal to the computer Vga port as shown below; 876c259.jpg

If in case you want better video quality and you don't have hdmi or dvi port
7b52172.jpeg
Dvi Port and Connector;


c866595.jpg
Hdmi Port
then you can use Vga to Dvi or 366d33f.jpg Vga to Hdmi a61953c.jpg
cables (these are available in most retailer stores)
It is not important to connect or purchase additional converter/hardware to connect you computer to the monitor, if you don't like the vga, you can simply get those cables.
I you let me know the Video card of your computer, I can help you better and shortened all these, but never mind, just refer to the pictures above and let me know if you can't make sure of yourself.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Can i connect a dvid cable from the monitor to my flat screen tv hdmi to watch videos from my computer? Thank you Martin


the Flat Screen TV if has, a HDMI input, also has VGA Input.

You must choose :HDMI or VGA, if HDMI The VGA board must Have HDMI Connector, and you connect a HDMI cable to the TV.

The HDMI is a digital signal input/output, VGA is Analog Signal. You must have Signal Converter if you Use the 2 signals

Problems connecting computer to tv via dvi


Not sure if you have fixed your problem or not. When I hook up my pc to the ILO 32 HD...I ran DVI input for picture...you can also use HDMI if you like..I had a problem with sound and had to use a splitter and run sound into AV2 IN to get sound for some reason...your no picture...if you are getting a black screen, you need to set the resolution on your pc. VGA to 640x480 and SVGA should be 800x600 and XGA should set at 1024x768..most likely the last one is the one you need..and this is not a normal pc res....set your refresh rate to 60HZ. All this is done in the control panel/display/settings tab. Also remember that you need to change your source on the TV to the proper connection to see it...ie component, HDMI etc.
