The monitor connected to the system is set to receive video signals from the DVI port on the video card and it is not getting a signal.

Possible Causes:

  1. Monitor is connected via VGA (Blue Connector). Fix by using the input select button to select DVI input)
  2. The video cable is not connected to the correct port on the system (Or not connected at all)
  3. The monitor is on, but the tower is not powering on or failing to complete the Power On Self-Test (POST). It the power LED on the tower is NOT on, or solid or flashing Amber then the tower is not posting. Flashing amber is normally a bad power supply, solid amber is the motherboard.

COMPUTER IS FROZEN..ERROR MESSAGE SAYS CHECK SIGNAL


So the message you get on your screen is telling you that there is no signal coming from the computer, Screen and computer are different parts, the screen is not your computer.

So this means that your computer is either not connected to your screen or not turned on. if it is turned on and properly connected, you have a hardware problem, take or have someone come over to inspect the pc in person.

My computer comes on and a analog shows up and my screen turns blank


Is it a desktop computer? If it is, check the video cable in the back of the monitor, a blue video cable means analog input and a white video cable means it's a digital input. You may have a digital input and all you need is to press the button on the monitor that has a little monitor symbol and see if it switches input types. If you have the blue cable connected to the monitor and you still get no signal then you may have a bad video card.

Won't record...says din lock


I'd say you have the digital input selected. The player does not see a digital signal and gives such message.
Select the analog input and you should be able to record.

Hope this helps.

I had the same problem, you must call Viewsonic to change your screen. The DVI input on the screen is dead.

No display


When you get the red and green leds lit it means the screen doesn't see an input signal and has gone to stand-by. That the red led goes off when you reconnect suggests a signal has been recognised by the screen but be very aware that it may not be a good signal. As you are using a PC input I will assume the signal is RGBHV, maybe you have the H and V swapped around? I would try another computer source into the screen.
You say you are using the digital harness, please explain exactly what this is.
