Question about ViewSonic VA520 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Open Question

Using ViewSonic VA520 TV Ready as DVD monitor

When I connect the VA520 to a Panasonic DVD recorder via the Panasonic RGB component video out, the monitor at first reads "no signal" until a DVD is loaded, then "out of range" for a few seconds before going blank. Any suggestions about whether this is possible and/or how to do it?

Thanks!

Have you tried via the Control Panel/Display function?  The driver provides the means but Windows provides access to those settings.

SOURCE: My Viewsonic Optiquest Q19 monitor blanks out

Sorry about your problems with the View Sonic 19” Monitor.
1st. thing you have to decide is weather the unit is worth repair and if you have the technical background to complete the repair.!!
If the power Led stay’s on and the video blanks out, it is most likely the backlight tube.
2nd. You can tell for sure, if you use a strong flashlight and see data on the screen.
If you can see data or images, it is the backlight. If the inverter board was bad, it would shut the power circuit down and you would not have continues power from the supply.
3rd. The backlight is not an easy job to undertake. Again, if you have little or NO technical background, you may want to pass on this project.
4th. If you decide to take on this project, you will need to order the backlight and if you are replacing that, you might as well check the Caps. And other components in the power supply and inverter board.
5ft. The backlight tube is cheep and can be purchased locally for under $10.00 USD
I needed to order a 15.1/4” tube for a laptop and decided saving 2 or 3 bucks was worth the investment. However, I ordered from China and had my tubes held up for over 5 working days and could have walked to the manf. And back by the time I had recvd. them.
Decide weather you want to repair it yourself, or have it serviced. A 19” View Sonic can be purchased for under $100.00 New with High Def.
The in shop repair with have to be more than the unit is worth.
Hope this information has been of some help.
If you decide to take on the job, drop me an email and I will go into better detail on what and how to do.

yes your back lights are going out. but because they work for a while the backlights are probably good and you need to have the invertor looked ar.

The problem is not at your monitor, it's on the VGA card; there are no drivers installed. Clarify me the brand / model of your VGA (or in case of embeded at the motherboard post the motherboard's brand / model) in order to try to locate and post you back the drivers for Windows 7.

Waiting clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Why when playing dvd still receiving tv sound off freeview


The problem is probably in how your audio is liked up. Is the connection from DVD to TV via hdmi, scart, phono, RGB, optical? You need to check that the video link from DVD to TV and the audio link from DVD to TV are the same. Hope this helps.

Rgb connection stopped working on laptop


Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

How to eliminate error screen:"your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. please chose another tv input source."


"cable box to tv is hdmi cable"

Everything I've read on the web says cable box to tv connection must also use component (rgb) cables. The error is coming from the cable box (STB). All the Scientific Atlanta (SA) cable boxes seem have this Digital Rights Management (DRM) bug and the only way to be totally rid of the error is to replace the digital connection from box to the TV with an analog connection.

Connecting Toshiba Lap Top to NEC LCD TV


From user manual (page 68):
Your computer comes with a built-in display panel, but you can also
connect an external display device to an available video port, as
follows:
❖ An external monitor or projector via the RGB (monitor) port
❖ A TV, VCR, or DVD recorder via the S-video (TV-out) port
Before connecting an external monitor or video projector, configure
your computer for the type of device you are connecting. To do this,
refer to the documentation for your operating system and devices

So you have to use an RGB cable or a S-video cable : your cable should be plugged into 15 pin VGA port in your PC and plug it into a correspondent port in your TV.
Try also S- video and select correponding input in your TV set (Both connection type DO NOT carry sound: use your audio connector from PC to TV audio input.)
Configure your extended screen using your manual instruction:
Once you have connected an external display device, you can
choose to use the internal display only, the external device only, or
both simultaneously. The quickest way to change the display output
settings is to use the display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order:
❖ Built-in display only
❖ Built-in display and external monitor simultaneously
❖ External monitor only
❖ Built-in display and TV
❖ TV only

How to connect a humax foxsat-hd to a panasonic dmr 75eb recorder,to a panasonic th42px60b plasma tv,also will i get better result using component cable instead of scart lead. please can you...


You plug the humax into the panasonic dvd recorder and then from the outputs of the dvd recorder plug it into the panasonic plasma inputs

Is component video better than RGB? Well, yes and no, RGB provides the widest bandwidth and is the best choice for connecting audio visual devices like a Freeview box, digibox or Sky+ box to your TV, home cinema or home theatre system. DVD is however different, to reduce the amount of storage required DVDs are recorded using component video, it is therefore better to connect a DVD player via a component video cable to your TV, plasma or LCD TV etc.

Thanks if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask

No sound through channels on hdd dvd


If you are taking output from the Red, Green Blue connectors (Component) from your video source and plugging them into your hd dvd recorder, you need a sound channel as well. The S-video carries both audio & video but not in high-definition. Sounds like you've got the 3 channels for your video (RGB-component) connection now you need an audio signal into your HD DVD recorder. That will be 1 fibre connection or 2 cables. Let me know if you get it working & good luck!

If your TV is a higher quality set that is HD capable, the problem may be in using RCA jacks. I suggest buying some component video cables. Some higher quality DVD players and TVs do not respond well to cheaper video feed wires. The only other option is a problem with the DVD player since the picture is coming through fine through other DVD sets. Try the wires first, its your cheapest option.

Fuzzy Picture


Are you using the component (RGB) outputs, and a Sony TV? I believe that there is something in the output of at least some Panny DVD recorders (over the RGB component path), which Sony TVs don't process properly.
