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?

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.

you have a rgb connection or a dvi connection.

do not engineer your own version of a vga/dvi cable.

just go and buy a new cable, which should be cheap

How do we connect xbox consul to imac and play


There is no way to connect the original XBox console to an imac's monitor. There was never an hdmi or VGA connector that was worth buying made for the Original XBox.

The XBox 360 has a nice VGA adapter. But no the original XBox, sorry!

Link my acer aspire 592o laptop to my panasonic plasma


Hi,
1. S-Video – This is probably the most commonmethod out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heckand just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll haveto make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there aretwo types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Mostlaptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only hasa 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA – If you have a HDTV, then you will bebetter off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better qualitythan S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usuallywon’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if youhave an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interfacewith “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give ahigher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, yourcomputer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to bean HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40to $80.
4. HDMI – Using HDMI will give you the best qualityby far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you canget a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatiblewith DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box – This is the last methodthat I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, whichtakes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
Here’s a graphic I created with some pictures of the various cables:

Hope this helps someone! If you have any other ideas or suggestions, please feel
