Does your computer have more than one video adapter installed. If so, try plugging into the other one.

SOURCE: floating box says check signal cable

plug the blue cable connection into the VGA port (also blue) on the back of the PC and then turn it on. If you have multiple VGA ports and it doesn't work the first time try the other port.

If the cable is white check that you have a white DVI port on the back of your PC and use that port.

How can I fix a no signal message on my sky+hd box


If you receive some channels and not others here's what to check.
Has your dish moved? has it been windy?
Turn off the sky box at the wall and check the two cables coming in from the dish. Unscrew the two "F" connectors and check there is a bit of cable sticking out of the end, if it's not long enough you will lose some channels. if you strip the cable back and make them too long then you will not get the plug back on. Be careful here as the middle cable must be straight to fit in the hole and the outer braiding must not touch the center cable. Make sure the box is off at the wall when handling this cable as there is up to 18 volts on it.
Because you say "it powered on again" i'm thinking your box has a power supply problem. When they were made they did not use good quality parts so there is a repair kit of 15 capacitors that usually need changing. Let me know if you can't get it sorted as i have done these before.

I'm currently installing my new SyncMaster 2280HD Monitor to be used for now just as a monitor. When I turned on the computer onscreen all I get are two floating boxes that say AV in the upper left...


It sounds like there is a connection issue between the computer and monitor. Make sure the cable connecting the computer and monitor is securely fastened on both ends. If you verify that it is and the problem persists, try using a different cable.

I just have a TESTING.... box floating on the screen. Even the menu buttons display nothing. Has this beast finally bit the dust?


Possible reasons for that may be bad cable connection, burnt videocard, or problem in the signal board in the monitor.
So, first check with another monitor if your PC is actually giving a singnal. Then look both ends of the cable for bend pins. They can be easily strighten with thin plyers. You can replace the cable VGA (or DVI) cable to see if it will fix the problem.
If your videocard is OK and the cable is OK, then try to open the monitor. Replace the capacitors on the signal board. Look for blown capacitors on the power board too. Replace if any.
If this cant help, there is major problem with the signal board of the monitor and more measuring is needed. There are buffer elements between the connector and the signal processor and some of them may be faulty. If there are no buffers and the signal goes directly to the processor, entire board should be replaced.
If there are VGA and DVI inputs, you may try the other input with the relevant cable.

I have a sharp tv with a cable box and i lose signal, like the tv is restarting itself. started when i got the tv. tried hdmi and component cables and switched tv providers and still does it... any ideas?...


This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

How do we adjust our tv


You didn't mention anything about a cable box, VCR, etc. which might be connected. A snowy pic. means simply, inadequate signal is reaching the tuner, or the TV tuner itself is bad. If the first is so... check your cabling. If you have a VCR or DVD player hooked in between the cable box or outside antenna (whichever is the case), VCR (RF or ant.) out should go to the TV, VCR antenna (RF or ant.) input to the cable box. Also check the cable wire itself. If you look at the end of the cable, you should see a relatively thin center wire. This center conductor is what carries the signal. If it is missing, bent over, or too short to make contact with whatever it is connected to, you will have a very snowy pic. If you have a spare TV, connect it in place of your "new" TV, to narrow down the problem. Lastly, if all is well with hookup, cabling, etc. the TV might have a problem. Sometimes the tuner has a component defect, or the coaxial connector can be broken.

No Satelite Signal Indication


The "front end" of your Receiver might be defective. Since your other unit is working then what might be happening is the signal to your unit might be dropping, to check this I would use a Satellite power meter, however if you do not have one you can use your other unit and connect it to the cable that your supposed defective unit is connected to. If the unit works then the problem is the supposed defective unit, if the unit does not work then this denotes a possible cable problem. Tell me if this works for you?
