Switch cablebox back to computer internet using my monitor

I am looking for an easy way to switch using my cablebox for tv viewing (using my computer monitor) back to using my computer monitor for internet use etc without having to unplug the hdmi cable from the back of the cable box each time because it takes about 1/2 hour for everything to re-boot back up again to watch tv

If I understand correctly you are using the same cable for both. Goto radio shack or mabe one of the big discount stores and buy a Dual cable splitter and two  cables (the length that you need) One house cable will go into the splitter . Coming out of the slitter will be two cables one is to go to the cable box and the the is to go to you computer modem.

How do I connect my cell phone to my TV so I can use it As a monitor


One solution is to use a GoogleCast dongle and the Chrome browser. The GoogleCast device is inexpensive, relatively easy to install and reliable. You do need a tv with a hdmi port and high speed internet.
It's not a true monitor but anything you can view on Chrome you can see on your tv at very near real time.

Diagnosing video problems on TVs and monitors


The first thing to always check is the MENU (osd - on screen display)

Push menu or display on your tv or monitor

- if the menu is clear, the problem is in the early stages of video or outside your device (could be the source (dvd, cablebox) or input connections

- if the menu is distorted, the problem is definitely a malfunction with your device the osd is generated from (tv menu distorted = 100% tv is problem)

* you can also use other OSD signals to troubleshoot - if the volume bar or display info (input label, info bar) is clear, problems are earlier in the circuitry or outside the device. don't be fooled by translucent menus or cablebox menus.

** osd is inserted in the picture in the later stages of video processing. if your osd is distored, suspect the circuitry after the video switch. this could be a bad LVDS cable, TCON or Logic board, or even a bad lcd panel, plasma panel, crt.

The TV wont come on at all, the power source is good The model # is DP19648 Sanyo Is there a reset button on TV?


d cooper, Because your unit is small screen type, You should visit YOUTUBE and view video clips of cold cathode fluorescent lamp back-lit lcd computer monitors being repaired. Your unit is subject to the same type of internal "switch-mode-power-supply/CCFL inverter ballast" circuit problems as are lcd monitors. Search terms at youtube are: "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" Then look for and view lcd tv repair video clips. Inspect your unit for "bad" (failed) electrolytic filter capacitors on the AC to DC switch mode multiple output power supply board. May have "open" fuse inside near or on the smps board. If "open fuse" the next question is why??? 12fixlouie

Hi,

You can only use your TV for viewing internet from your computer by using the TV as a PC monitor. To do this you should connect your computer to your TV using a standard VGA cable - the same as you would use to connect your computer to any other external monitor. You should note that this cable doesn't carry a sound signal so you can't use the TV speakers for sound output.

However, you can connect an HDMI cable from your computer to your TV to play media files or DVDs. This cable does carry a sound signal so you will be able to use your TV speakers here. This cable cannot be used for turning your TV into a PC monitor.

And all of above shouldn't be confused with "Internet TV". This is something totally different and requires your TV to be connected directly to the internet.

Hope this helps.

I don't have problem just a question can a tec view be used as a computer monitor? where can i get a remote


Look for a port labeled 'VGA' on the back or sides of your TV. Also, compare the ports on your TV to the port on your current PC monitor and if you see on your TV a port that matches the one on your current monitor, then you can use your TV as a PC monitor.

Corrupted display on LCD monitor.


Those lines on the right side show sign of damaged T-CON board, part of the LCD panel assembly, nothing you can do but getting the new LCD panel. The bright section on the screen looks like the backlight lamp reflector got out off the guide channel.

Access the cablebox setup menu if possible. If it is a Motorola, you need to have the TV on and turn the cablebox off. Then press menu on the cablebox or cablebox remote. Under HDMI options, change audio output to L-PCM or PCM. This may not fix the issue, but it is a good start. Secondly, contact Toshiba for the latest firmware update for your product. Some models have had new firmware releases as late as this week for similar issues. If you still do not find resolution with these two recommendations, you should switch to component (Y/Pb/Pr) cables for your connection.

Cant get all componenets to work together


Okay so you need to run a fiber optic cable to back of bose system for sound on the cablebox if it's a hd cablebox. If you don't have a fiberoptic connection on cable box then you can use a digital coax audio cable and plug it from cablebox if it has it to back of bose system where the plugs are colored all black under the red and white connections. This cable is basically a yellow video rca type cable. That cable doubles as a video cable and a digital audio cable. But anyways once you plug your cablebox up digitally you need to make sure under the settings or setup menu of cablebox that you go under audio and make sure your cablebox is set to dolby digital instead of hdmi. Especially if it's a scientific atlanta time warner cable box. The bose remote should operate eveything still unless I read your question wrong and your saying it doesn't.
