Question about LG Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have a LG 27LC2R LCD which has been used for a year as just a TV; now I want it to work as a PC monitor also using the RGB connector. When turning the PC on a signal is received but after about 20 secs the signal goes even though the PC is still booting up...and I am left with 'no signal' bouncing across the screen...anyone know how to sort this?

    Just to re-iterate; the TV is working fine, its the PC signal that isn't being received by the LG. But, when I change the input on the LG to RGB and then turn on the PC at the base unit, you CAN see the signal run for about 10 to 15 seconds (ie you can see the boot-up script scrolling and then the 'window' logo appearing...) but then it disappears and all you can see is the 'no signal' message bouncing around.

You will need to lower the resolution on your video card as the LG is not able to give you the resolution that you are putting out to it or the frequency is not right.

First I would suggest that you try to boot in safe mode. This should give you a picture no matter what resolution is on your desktop settings.

Then go into the control panel, click open the display icon, then go over to the far right tab and change the display settings to a lower resolution.

After you reboot you can test changing them to a higher resolution, as high as the monitor can go.

This should take care of the display for you


I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Hi

I have a LG 27LC2R - dual-monitors.jpgI have been running dual monitors since June 2001. If you are like me and have been through numerous computer upgrades over the years you probably have a spare monitor laying around. Why not put it to use! You will be amazed at what a time saver it is. I work with graphics programs and create web pages. With a dual monitor I can put the floating tool palettes from my graphics program on one monitor and have the graphic I am working on in front of me with no clutter. I can create web pages on the main screen and view them on the second. I can view instructions I receive by email on one screen and work on the other. If you use a spreadsheet program you can set it to spread across both screens so you don't have to constantly scroll back and forth. You will not have to be constantly minimizing and maximizing windows when working with several programs at one time. You will be amazed at what a time saver this is. Once you go dual you will never go back! Besides saving time, less mouse clicking means less problems with carpal tunnel & repetitive stress injuries.

You need to know what interface your video card uses. An older computer may have a PCI slot. After PCI the AGP connector was developed and the newest type slot is the PCI Express.
If you aren't sure what type of card or slot you currently have you may need to pull the card and look at it before you order a card. If it is not marked on the card you can do a search on Google images to see what the different interfaces look like. A PCI Express card will not fit in a PCI slot, the PCI Express slot is different.

    Commonly, you will be able to identify this by looking at the back of your PC, look for the VideoCard (your VGA monitor is also connected to this card!).

    Most videocards by ATI and nVidia (but not all!) have such a connector. It's a MUST for a modern videocard.

    Tip: Since price difference is minimal or even zero, make sure a videocard you want to buy has TV-Out. You might not use it right away, but it is damn handy later on. Adding one later is very difficult if not impossible!

    S-Video (also known as Super Video or S-VHS)

    Commonly, a TV-Out connector is a S-VIDEO connector. It looks a bit like a connector for your mouse/keyboard (see A and B in the pictures below). These come in several variants;

    - with Video-IN and Video-Out signals in one connector
    - using Composite video or Super Video
    - only S-VIDEO
    - only Composite video

    Usually special cables come with these cards, that convert the connector to a more common connector, like a tulip connector for composite video.

Connect VGA (D-sub 15 pin) cable from PC to TV (RGB PC) input jack. Connect audio cable from PC to TV. Set screen resolution on PC to be compatible with TV, such as 800 X 600 or 1024 X 768 etc. Select on the TV, the PC INPUT using the TV remote when ready to use as monitor.

Under PICTURE on the TV select SCREEN (RGB-PC). You can AUTO-CONFIG or you can set resolution manually to the same you set PC to. Other adjustments can be done here as well to get optimum picture on TV from PC.

You may need to use the S-video cable for video. Make sure video mirroring is disabled on the powerbook. Also, make the external monitor the primary display by dragging the menu bar to it in Displays preferences (Mac OS X) or the Monitors control panel (Mac OS 8 and 9).

Try changing the resolution on you computer. That TV may not handle the current resolution setting. You may also have to do something on your computer to turn on the rgb output.
