Acer H243H monitor says it is not HDCP compliant

I have connected the monitor with the DVI connectors to my motorola satellite receiver and after about 30 seconds connection (excellent clarity and resolution) and the infrequent appearance of an ''HDCP non compliant'' message I lose the signal and must power down the monitor to get the signal again. A very inconvenient way to watch a hockey game.

SOURCE: Acer AL1916W 19" problem

Hello mat78, Unfortunatelly the problem is hardware based. You will need to have the monitor repaired in a service center. Here's why: LCD/TFT monitors don't produce light themselves. They are composed by a matrix of transistors (TFT - thin film transistor) that have the property to reflect or allow some light (certain wavelenghts)to pass through them. They don't produce light by themselves. Instead there is a fluorescent tube (neon like) light inside the monitor and that's the light source used in order for you to see what's on the screen. A flourescent light is suposed to last pretty much, i don't think yours has a problem, you say it works for some seconds or so. Instead your problem is most probable with the inverter circuitry that powers on that light. It's a common problem among these types of monitors but in your situation i don't think it will be an expensive repair. In the case that the screen is dark (in a dark place you can't read or view anything on it) but if you apply light to it ( a flashlight or something) and you see something, then the problem is most likely to have occured with the invertor. Try to ask at a local service center for a repair, this shouldn't be an expensive procedure. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: hdmi to dvi

This message may occur if the signal from the video adapter exceeds the scan range of the monitor (monitor not HD enabled).

The video adapter setting on PS3 for updating the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor.

SOURCE: connecting dvi cable straight to acer monitor

The cable box is probably outputting a resolution the monitor is not compatible with. Computer monitor and television resolutions are usually different, and not cross compatible in some cases.

For example, wide screen monitors are usually 16:10 aspect ratio, while TV is usually 16:9 aspect.

The AL2216wbd is a 1680x1050 display, while HD TV is either 720p (1280x720) or 1080i (1920x1080).

If your cable box is set to 1080i that would be too high for the monitor. You will need to set it to output at 720p, and even then you will probably get a vertically stretched picture since the monitor has a taller aspect.

SOURCE: Is the FPD1960 HDCP compliant

No, it's not HDCP compliant, I can see other owners who've tried to use it with a PS3 (that requires a HDCP compliant screen) and it's not worked.

Maybe your BIOS switched to VGA output, try plugging in another monitor which has VGA input and change settings in BIOS for default output to DVI.

Acer monitor no signal


If your monitor has various input sources, make sure it's on the correct input source in the main/input menu. If that's not the problem double check the cable for bent pins also make sure if you have a video card with DUAL dvi outputs that your using the correct one.. as the other one might be secondary and non-functional. It's possible but highly unlikely if you unplugged the DVI cable while the monitored was still powered on it could have damaged the video card of the computer or mainboard of the LCD monitor. When in doubt try another DVI cable if all else fails.. if you have another DVI monitor (thats a known good) try that also to make sure that the video card is not the problem.

The Samsung 730BF is not HDCP compliant. This is a requirement for HDMI playback for consoles and DVD players etc. - most newer monitors with DVI connectors are also HDCP compliant.

I have a Samsung C230 LED monitor and I'm wondering if I can use it with a Roku XD/S in place of a TV via the hdmi cable?


as far as i can tell this monitor is not HDCP compliant ( High Def Copy Protection ) and therefore will not be suitable as a TV monitor. Computers can use non HDCP compliant monitors but TV Tuners, Satellite Receivers, DVD players etc with HDMI are HDCP compliant and must have a HDCP display... HDMI has two formats basically HDCP and non HDCP

DVI ==> Digital Video Input
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card has both DVI and VGA outputs,
then buy a DVI-to-DVI cable, and use it, for a better picture.
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card only has VGA output,
then use a VGA-to-VGA cable.
Or, purchase a video-card with DVI output,
to replace the video-card with VGA output,
and then use a DVI-to-DVI cable.

Hi,

I believe you are referring to a DVi connector. We have different types of connectors but none of them is DFi. We have VGA, HDMI, SATA, and DVi connectors. Here's a cheklist of what you need to do:
  1. Check the connector of the computer whether you have VGA, HDMI, SATA, or DVi
  2. Check the connector of the monitor whether you have VGA, HDMI, SATA, or DVi
  3. Now that you know the type of connectors you have for your system, you know what cable to buy.
It does not really matter if your computer and monitor have different connectors. We can purchase cables with VGA - VGA, HDMI - HDMI, DVi - DVi, VGA - HDMI, VGA - DVi, HDMI - DVi. So, don't worry and thank you for choosing FixYa!

Definitely!
As long as it's the same connection (VGA or DVI) in both the monitor and the computer itself - any monitor will do the job!
If the monitor has a DVI connector but the computer has a VGA connector only, a DVI-to-VGA adapter is required.

Depending upon the video port/s you have on the graphics card, you need to connector one video cable, either the DVI or the 15pin DSub to the monitor.
