Re: TV Monitor

Hi Lylell, Your LG Studioworks 221U Monitor's input uses either a D-Sub which is a standard 15 pin vga cable or a 13W3C cable which is for cad workstations. On the other hand the output of your Dish Network receiver is either RCA-type audio/video or an S-video output. Since all are not directly compatible you would need something in between and not just cables. Technically what you need is to convert composite video output to d-sub 15 pin video input. A fine example is COMP2VGA by originally designed for gamers. There are some in the market that are simple connector to connector such as in, please don't bother since it has been known not to work. To complete the setup, you would need a stereo amp/speaker pair for the audio out of your receiver. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. good luck and kind regards.

You can't. The TV can't operate as both a monitor and a TV receiver at once. In order to use the TV as a computer monitor you need to select the VGA input, which shuts off the TV tuner. If you want to watch TV at the same time, you need a TV tuner card in the computer. Then you can have the TV program displayed in one window while another displays whatever other application you're running.

We need to have our dish network remote control work the whole tv with just that remote...what is the code for the remote control?

I show no codes listed for this TV, I suggest you try a Power Scan, the steps are below:

Power Scan
1.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, then press 500 pound ( #)
2.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, press the big power button once.
3.) Press the channel up button once per second until the TV turns off then press pound (#).

It sounds like you have intermittent solder connections that are causing problems. With the back on, the board is flexing enough to make some connection(s) fail. Use a strong light and a magnifying glass to examine the solder side of the circuit board for bad connections, especially around parts mounted on heatsinks.

Can't get picture

Hello matthew95765,
The TV is working, the message is coming from the dish box. What you need to do is to determine if the dish box is connected to the dish and that it has signal at the box, because the message it is delivering to the TV is that it is not receiving signal from the satellite. so you have to check the connection at the satellite and at the box because those are the only point that can generate the error you are getting.
I hope this helps,
Thank you,
