Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

Big screen for laptop

Hi, I am trying to use my lcd TV screen as my monitor for my HP Pavilion 1000. I have connected them with a 15 pin ( 3 rows of 5) plug at each end. The jack is on the left side of my lap top, the screen which is a Sony Bravia has the same jack at the back. I have gone to PC mode on the screen. The message I'm getting from thre big screen is that there is No Signal, or that there is no unsupported signal,and to adjust my computer output. Any ideas how I can make this work?
many thanks.

Keyboard lights up screen stays black....after inserting recovery disk screen still remains black...


Would like you to attach an external monitor for a diagnoses.

A VGA monitor.
Can be a CRT monitor that resembles a small TV, or a flat LCD screen monitor, that has a VGA cable attached,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach the VGA cable of the monitor to the laptop's VGA connector.

[For the HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC, the VGA connector is on the Left side at the Rear. Second port from the rear. 15 pins.
3 rows of 5]

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT style allow it to warm up.
3) Turn the laptop on.

By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

If not, press, and hold down on the FN key,
(Second key from the left, on the Bottom row on the Keyboard),
and tap on the F4 key.
(Top of Keyboard towards the left)

Still no? Hold the Fn key down again, and at the same time tap on the F4 key.

There are 3 display options;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

IF, the display shows up on the external monitor, and if it is OK, the problem lies in the Display Assembly, and/or the Video Cable.

More on that in a moment.

IF, the display does Not show up on the external monitor, or if it is garbled, the graphics chipset is bad.

HOWEVER, there is a problem with the graphics chipset, for the dv6000 series of HP Pavilion Notebook PC's.
More specifically it isn't actually the graphics chipset itself, but the mounting of the graphics chipset to the motherboard.
More on this in a moment.

External VGA monitor shows a good display;
Video Cable:
The video cable is checked for apparent damage first, and at the same time, see if it's connectors are tightly plugged in.

On one end, the video cable is plugged into the motherboard.

(ALL power removed, AC adapter { Charger} and Battery, the Switch Cover is removed, and the Keyboard, far enough to lay it back out of the way. Keyboard Cable still attached to motherboard. The Display Cable is the one to the Far left, right under the left side of the LCD screen. The cable next to it, to the immediate right, is the Microphone Cable )

The video cable routed from the connection on the motherboard, up under the left Hinge Cover, and into the Display Assembly, where it then attaches to the Back of the LCD screen.

THIS connection must be checked also.

{ Just gave advice similar to this earlier. The asker's problem turned out to be a loose video cable connection, on the back of the LCD screen }

Examine the sheath of the video cable. See if there are signs of damage. If so the tiny wires inside the cable could be damaged.
Apparent damage or not, you may want to remove the video cable, and perform a continuity check with a multimeter. (Ohm's. Check each wire in the cable)

Video Cable connections prove to be tight, video cable continuity check proves video cable is OK, move on to the screen Inverter.

Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.

The Backlight is a CCFL for an HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC.
[It is 2mm Wide, and 334mm Long. Or a little thicker than 1/16th inch Wide, and a little over 13 inches Long ]

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

A screen Inverter is used to convert power (Electricity) from the laptop, FOR the Backlight, and LCD screen.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is a bad screen Inverter.

Example of a screen Inverter for a Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC,

http://www.nylaptopparts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=560

The thin plastic frame that surrounds the LCD screen, and is in front of the LCD screen, (Resembles a picture frame), is the Display Bezel.
The screen Inverter is located behind the Display Bezel, and at the bottom of the LCD screen area.

External VGA monitor does NOT show a good display, it is a graphics chipset mounting issue, more to follow.

[ P.S.
You can disconnect the LCD display, and use an external VGA monitor, while you wait for the replacement LCD screen.

1) Laptop off, VGA monitor off.
2) Connect the VGA monitor to the Left side of the laptop.
( External monitor port. The VGA connector resembles this one,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SVGA_port.jpg

3) Turn the VGA monitor on. Wait for it to 'warm up'.
Turn the laptop on.

If the display does not automatically go to the external monitor;
Press, and hold down on the Fn key.
Tap the F4 key.

(The VGA monitor can be a CRT monitor, {Looks like a small TV}, or a flat LCD screen monitor that has a VGA connector, and a VGA cable ]

Will my hp pavilion a 420n support a 19" flat screen monitor


Hello,

I have to assume you are currently using the larger size called a tube type monitor and would like to have an LCD or flat screen type monitor connected to your computer.

To connect to new LCD flat screen monitor to your computer would be exactly the same connection as what you are currently using.

The only problem you could run into is the connector itself. Some of the flat screen LCD monitors do not have the older style connector called VGA, usually blue called DB15, because it has 15 pin connector. They may have only have the newer style called a DVI type. Some do have both types.

Please be sure the LCD you want has the older style DB15 connector to connect to the rear blue VGA input of your compter.

Good Luck

I have a HP Pavilion a6838F computer and I want to hook it up to my Hitachi 46" Projection TV (Model# 46GX01B). What cables do I need to do this. I want to watch movies, etc. on the big TV rather than on...


Warren:
Your PC monitor uses the 15 pin VGA connection for the output of your PC.
Does the Hitachi 46" have this type of 15 pin female input connection on it?

The problem is that I don't believe your Projection TV will display the output resolution that your PC outputs.
Many newer LCD or Plasma flat screen TV's have the VGA input feature's as they are made for High resolution inputs such as HDTV '1920 x 1024'
Sorry I just don't beleive that the TV will display the quality image you are so used to on your PC monitor.
Blessings,

Trying to connect my laptop to Hdtv with vga wire?


Ok, 14-pin is for really OLD VGA. Your cable will simply NOT work. Find a S-VGA cable (15-pin) and you are on your way to fame. By the way, make some room trashing that old cable.

Unable to connect to samsung tv as monitor for hp laptop


Hi there
DSUB is VGA, has your TV got a VGA port on the back? if so and you know what the source the channel is then you will need a male to male VGA lead and a mini stereo jack to left and right male phono jacks for the audio, the DSUB or VGA does not carry audio through it.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Dont work


Hi on your laptop a key has to be depressed in order to turn on display on the monitor - its probably Fn key+F5/F6/F7 and also ensure that the 15 pin connector of the monitor is plugged properly to the 15 pin D type jack on your laptop.

Bluish screen -


is it a greenish blue?..... if so you have lost your red signal..... check your monitor connectors for bent or broken pins...... usually happens after swapping cables or monitors on a computer..... you could also have a bad cable or monitor..... is the monitor a CRT or a flat panel.... loss of one color is very common on CRT monitors, and could be a bad solder connection on the CRT driver board, or a bad video chip..... flat panel LCD monitors don't usually lose a color, although it is possible.... the most common failures on LCD flat panels is total power supply failure (no power at all) or display matrix driver failure (colored stripes across or down the screen), but a cable failure is also possible, like i said above, check the connectors for bent or broken pins..... there are 3 rows of pins...... at the widest side of the connector, there should be at least 3 pins next to each other on that row (sometimes there are 5), the middle row should at least have 3 consecutive pins as well (and again, there are sometimes 5) the last row (the smaller side of the connector) should have at least two (but sometimes all 5) pins in it. the first row and last row of pins should line up vertically, and the middle row is offset a half a space, so from top to bottom, the columns of pins make a zigzag...... if the connectors are alright, then your most likely problem is the monitor..... if another monitor works on the computer, it's the monitor..... if another monitor has the same problem on this computer, then it is the video card (or the motherboard's video output, which is fixable by installing a video card)
