Question about LG Flatron 795FT Plus Monitor

1 Answer

I've fried my monitor - Won't power on

Hi, I connected my 795FT to my XBox using an VGA cable which I fabricated myself. Problem is I think one of the pins was connected incorrectly and has fried my monitor. When I first connected the cable the monitor was already powered on and showing the OSD. As soon as the cable was attached the screen went blank. As soon as the cable was disconnected the OSD reappeared. On connecting the cable again the screen went blank and the whole monitor seemed to power down and will not power up again. I have checked the external power and internal fuse, both are fine. I have downloaded the service manual for this model and am about to step through the checklist. (Checking diodes and caps etc.) However this is the first time I've tried anything like this and I would like some advice as to whether I'm likely to be wasting my time or not. Cheers, Chris

    Thanks for your reply, Leroyal. I've Googled a couple of the parts and think I may be able to get hold of them athough, I agree, it's not gonna be easy.
    I got my multimeter out this evening and started going through the troubleshooting guide in the service manual. I noticed that one of the heat sinks is charged to around 150v - is this normal?

Xbox360 to pc monitor


HDMI to DVI works better than HDMI to VGA because VGA only uses simple RBG scheme.

Additionally the only way i see the Xbox getting connected to the extrenal speakers is if you get the speakers connected to the monitor/tv or whatever you are using directly. I havent tried or do not know of any way to connect the Xbox to speakers directly.

Acer Aspire 5536 only gives black screen when i connect power supply


  • Nothing is more annoying than a monitor that refuses to turn on. Make sure your Acer monitor is plugged in to a functioning outlet. If it's plugged into a power strip, try replacing it with a new one or moving the plug to a different outlet. Ensure that both ends of the power cable are plugged in firmly and securely, and that the connection to the monitor is not loose.
Cable Issues
  • Your Acer LCD monitor will usually accept DVI and VGA inputs. If you have an older computer, a VGA cable should work fine. If it doesn't have a VGA port, you'll need to obtain an inexpensive DVI to VGA adapter at your local computer store. A DVI cable, however, is compatible with most modern computers and offers superior picture quality over VGA. Make sure you're using the cable that's compatible with your system, and that you have the proper conversion adapter, if necessary.

I can't connect my xbox360 to my sony pfm-42b2 tv


Keep in mind that your Sony IS NOT A TV, but a monitor instead. There is an actual XBOX360 VGA adapter that's available at most gaming retailers. It was initially designed for those who wanted to use their PC monitors for there console gaming. HDMI is NOT compatible with a VGA input as HDMI is a digital signal type and VGA is an analog type connection. You must also remember to have the XBOX set to a NON-progressive resolution (480i) if trying to hook it up using the standard XBOX video cables.

Can i connect my xbox 360 using Dvi D to Hdmi in the dvi slot and also my tower to the vga slot on my eMachines E19T6W


I am not an xbox person, but as far as hooking it up, it should work as long as the other device is NOT powered up. That being said you will still have to provide audio from the xbox another way as dvi only carries a video signal, unlike the hdmi which carries both audio and video.

I have a sceptre model x9g-naga v flat screen monitor that I am trying to connect my x box 360 to. It allows me to play games, but when I put in a movie, it says, secure hdcp link not found. I was told...


A simple work around that could be able to fix it is by turning on the xbox, waiting until the screen showed the logo and the error message "secure hdcp link not found" then unplugging the hdmi cable from the back of the xbox and plugging it back in. Of course having to do this each time you wanted to turn on your Xbox would be annoying. (I have not tested this using VGA cable hookup though)

If you are asking how to change your Xbox to 480i then you will need simply use the red, yellow, and white cable as it defaults to 480i. (not possible with your monitor I don't think)
  1. On your console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Console Settings.
  3. Select Display.
  4. Select HDTV Settings.
  5. Select the appropriate screen resolution for your TV or monitor. 480p,720p,1080i,1080p, 1024x768, 1280x1024.

I am assuming from your TV that you are using VGA? With VGA then your system is going to automatically choose the best display for your monitor. You can go into the display settings as described above to adjust your display settings.

Hope this helps.

I think your cable is damaged.

I've you can pull your VGA cable (BLUE) out of your monitor, you can replace it by a new one.

I've not, you need to get it fixed.

Can you use an xbox arcade on flatron LG L1810T? If so which setting does it have to be on as the tv is not recognising the xbox at all


HI,
Your LG LCD monitor has a white DVI connector for connecting the signal cable.

You would reqire either an HDMI to DVI(male connector cable for the xbox) so that you can hook the hdmi cable to the xbox and other end to your monitor.
The cable would look something like this
