Sul monitor Acer AL1515 compare Input Not Supported

When a monitor displays "Input not supported", the display resolution is set too high. To resolve this, change the resolution to a supported resolution of the monitor. What you can do is restart your computer to safe mode first. These are the steps going into safe mode:

1. Make sure your computer is off.

2. Turn on computer then tap F8 repeatedly once per second. Similarly, Windows advanced options menu should be up on you screen.

3. use arrow keys to highlight "safe mode".

4. press enter twice.

5. log on to your user profile

6. you will get a window asking you to press "yes" or "no". CLICK the YES button.

7. perform the next steps below according to your windows version (operating system)

In Windows XP

  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
  2. On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider to the desired resolution and click Apply.
  3. When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. The screen will turn black for a moment.
  4. Once the screen resolution changes, confirm the change by selecting Yes. A timer will count down for 15 seconds to ensure the change is desired.
    Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to the previous setting.

In Windows Vista
  1. Press the Start button , select Control Panel, select Appearance and Personalization, select Personalization, and then Display Settings.
  2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the desired resolution and click Apply.
NOTE: For Windows 7, it should be similar to the steps for Windows Vista.

Viewsonic vx2835wm monitor, in DVI mode connection, altough getting signal from the PC(Other monitor connected and tested for graphic card problem-No graphics card problem!!) , Prompts "No input-signal"...

You will need to change the resolution of the screen on the computer to 800-600 and the bit to 24bits or 16bits, to do this right click on the windows screen, and click properties, goto settings.
You should see a slider at the bottem left of the screen to adjust the resolution, and a drop down bar on the other side for the bit rate. This should solve the problem, also you could open the scond screen also in the display properties, and drag what you need to see on the screen to that screen, you will know what i mean when you open screen 2 it just expands the desktop. hope this helps.

I have a LG flatron W2053TQ i cannot press any button every button i press say osd locked

Press and hold the MENU button for about 5 seconds. This should unlock the controls. On some monitors it will be the power button that you need to press for 5 seconds to unlock.
If none of this works, it may be a malfunction needing servicing.

My screen lights for about 2 seconds and then goes black. If I press the off button and then press it on, I get two seconds of screen (good quality) and then black again. It acts like a cold-solder fault.

My LCD had the same problem. I just finished changing the 25V 1000uF capacitor and now its working just fine. The capacitors are located on the board that have the power input. Check if any of the capacitors (the tall cylindrical structures) have bulging tops, if they do, try to replace them Please bear the polarity in mind when you play with capacitors.

Screen cuts off image

To see the button on the right hand side of this monitor you will need to shine a really bright light on it, but the buttons from top to bottom are: 1, up-arrrow, down-arrow, and 2.

  1. On the side of the monitor press the 1 button to activate the menu.
  2. A configuration menu for the monitor will appear; from that menu highlight the "Input Select" menu item using the up and down buttons on the monitor; when you have the item high-lighted, press the 2 key.
  3. A new menu will appear, and then you can select the menu item called HDMI on the left and PC waaay over on the right. Select this menu item with the up and down arrows and when it is selected,
  4. And press 2 like you did in the previous step.
Apparently there's some sort of a strange difference between using this monitor as a "video monitor" and using it with a computer.

Monitor comes on for seconds and then goes black

This may be because the resolution that is set in your user profile when you log on has been changed to a resolution not supported by the monitor. The best way to fix this is by going into Safe Mode (press F8 as the computer starts to load Windows) and change it to a lower resolution once you get logged in. 1024X768 is a pretty safe resolution to start with. Then restart and see if that fixes the issue.

Laptop LCD goes black after a few seconds


Yes, The pink tint is an indication that the backlight is failing. Now the backlight is basically dead, the best way to get back going is to do an Ebay search for your model laptop and get a new screen. Most screens can be purchased for around $50.00 - $70.00 and they are very easy to swap. Email me if you need more info.

Screen Goes Blank

Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

LCD Monitor Goes Black during Use

I had the problem sometimes, but then I connected a second computer to the analog input and found out, that the screen didnt turn black but switches between the inputs on an on.

I found out that the "input" button seems to be short or damaged, as the behaviour was invertable by pressing the button. I blew into the button some times (a very naive solution, yeah) but it worked, the switching stoppped.
