Question about LG Flatron 795FT Plus Monitor

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?

It will be almost impossible to find these components unless you are in Taiwan.

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.

My monitor flickering when I touch or tight the monitors VGA cable then display will come what is the problem of the monitor


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.

* Make sure the cable is connected properly.

* I've you have mutiple interfaces like HDMI & VGA, try switching between these until you get a signal :D
This can be performed by using the build-in options menu.

Hello so on my monitor i have two vga in slots and one of them works and the other keeps saying cable not connected and it stays a black screen so everytime i want to play on my xbox i have to unplug and...


Usually when a PC monitor like this one has multiple inputs, there is an input change button (much like the one on a TV). It might be hidden in a menu. Make sure that when you have both devices connected and turned on that you're switching to the correct input in order to view the other device. It's very unlikely that it will switch automatically.

If you're viewing the correct input and you're still not getting a signal from your Xbox, it could be a defective monitor connection. Try switching the cable first: use the cable that you know works and connect it to the second input to make sure that it's not a cable problem.

If the cable is fine but the second input still isn't working, the monitor input connector is probably malfunctioning. Depending on how long you've had it and if it's still under any kind of warranty, you may want to contact Acer for further support and see if they can either fix it or replace it for you.

Hope this is helpful!

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

Nothing on the screen at startup


If you cant get into the setup menu then I would think the monitor is defective,you did not state if you hooked up the monitor to a computer that has a vga port that works.

DVI input on monitor not working


Contacted viewsonic about this issue- they suggested- have both dvi and vga hooked up to same machine. start with poweroff on both. power on monitor, then power on computer. when you see display coming from the vga, power off pc, then disconnect vga cable, turn off power to monitor, disconnect power cord from monitor for 5 + seconds, reconnect power cord, power on monitor, then power on pc.
If this doesn't work to get the dvi working, (as happened to us) we returned our monitor for a replacement, since it was still under warranty.
