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.

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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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 http://hardware.teamxbox.com/reviews/xbox-360/40/Xbox-360-VGA-HD-AV-Cable/p1/
there is a step by step procedure
1.check the power cord. (try with a new one)
2.check the monitor on other pc, even if it is not working on the other pc, then carry to a service centre.
3.if it is working on the other pc then check the vga slot/card of your pc then
4.try to change the vga card and try connect an other monitor to your pc. so basing on this you will be able to trace the problem.
5.still the problem persists the consult the service centre.
