Car TFT LCD monitor with only an s-video cable input??

I have a TFT LCD Display monitor for automotive applications. It appears to only have a S-video cable from the unit with a female connection on the end and that is all, i assume that power is transferred down the cable also.

If i wanted to hook this monitor up to a pc using a graphics card with an s-video out, do i need a certain number of pins in my s-video cable for this or can anyone tell me which cables would be 12v power and earth?

the colors i have are--

|RED|BLACK|thinPURPLE|YELLOW(split into black and yellow thin wires)|WHITE(split into black and white thin wires)|

Any enlightenment would be appreciated.

Regards

Ben

A bit late on this! You will need a multi cable for the unit. It connects with the cable on the monitor and the other end has several terminals, usually like so.... NTSC video, audio, bat positive and battery negative. Could also be left and right audio.

Neither picture is displaying on moniter nor sound is coming (DELL TFT moniter)


Which is a dell tft or compaq crt monitor ?
The Dell 1504FP is a flat panel LCD monitor that has a viewable area of 15 inches.
The monitor, which uses TFT technology, is designed to be used in a home or office and displays video at a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels.
Over time, you may encounter problems using your Dell 1504FP monitor or it may cease functioning altogether.
Fortunately, there are variety of ways that you can repair the monitor to get it back up and running.
Shut down your computer and press and hold the power button on the side of your Dell 1504FP monitor if your monitor has a blank screen.
Unscrew the VGA video cable that connects the monitor to the computer.
Power the Dell 1504FP monitor back on and wait as it launches into the Self-test Feature Check.
During this period of time your monitor will make settings changes to ensure that it functions properly with your computer.
Firmly screw the VGA cable back into the rear of the monitor to ensure optimal video quality. Power both the monitor and computer back on and wait for your computer's desktop to appear.
Power off your Dell 1504FP monitor if the screen is dirty.
Wipe down the monitor using a dry microfiber cloth to remove any dust particles or smudges that have accumulated on the screen over time.
Power the monitor back on when you are complete and resume using it.
Press the "Auto Adjust" button on the right side of your Dell 1504FP monitor if the display is blurry and images appear out of focus.
Unplug the monitor's power cord for thirty seconds if the problem persists.
Plug the monitors power cord back into the rear of the device and power it back on.
This will reset the monitor and your display should now be focused properly.

Troubleshoot a TFT Monitor
TFT monitors can suffer from many potential problems, ranging from simple screen brightness issues to disconnected inverter or LCD cables.
These can cause video- and backlight-related failures on your TFT monitor.
Fortunately, you can attempt to repair these problems, even if you have no experience fixing a TFT monitor.
The only tool you will need is a Phillips screwdriver, although opening your TFT monitor will likely void its warranty.
Check the brightness settings on the TFT monitor.
There are dedicated adjustment keys on the bottom face of the TFT monitor.
If it is a screen incorporated into the design of a laptop, you'll find monitor adjustment keys on the top row of the laptop's keyboard.
A TFT monitor that has its brightness turned all the way down will appear to be almost completely dark.
Ensure the TFT monitor's power cable is still plugged in, if it is an external monitor. In the case of a laptop, make sure that the power cable is plugged in or that the battery is properly charged.

Disconnect the TFT monitor from the power source. If the TFT monitor is an external model connected to a computer tower, disconnect the video cable as well.

Remove the battery from your computer if you are using a laptop.
This is an important safety measure.
Turn the laptop over and slide the battery release mechanism over.
This mechanism is just below the horizontal outline of the battery on the underside of the laptop.

Remove the screws on the bezel of the TFT monitor.
The bezel is the plastic piece surrounding the TFT screen.
The screws will likely be covered with plastic seals for aesthetic purposes, so pop these seals off with your fingers and remove the screws using a Phillips screwdriver.

Pry up on the bezel gently and remove it.
Start at one corner and work along the bezel's perimeter with your fingers.
There will be small plastic latches between the bezel and the rest of the computer you'll need to disengage.

Check the TFT monitor's inverter cable.
This black cable lies at the bottom center of the monitor and should connect to a socket on the inverter board, which is the green color horizontal strip that lies just below the inverter cable.
If the cable is loose from the board, the TFT monitor's backlight will fail. Pull up on one side of the socket and slide the cable back in, then press firmly down on the socket to lock it down.

Remove the metal brackets on either side of the exposed TFT monitor if the inverter cable fix does not solve your issue.
There will be two to three screws in each bracket that must be removed using your Phillips screwdriver.

Pull the TFT monitor carefully away from the rear casing of the display to reveal the LCD cable. This cable runs from the back of the TFT screen and should be connected to a socket in a similar fashion to the inverter cable. If it is disconnected, lift up on the socket, slide the LCD cable back in, then press down on the LCD socket to lock it back down.
NOW FOR SOUND
if you can get a screen
Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to sound video and game controllers you might see a yellow question / exclamation? ! mark or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers
If your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
or you might download slimdrivers.
Rather doing a driver hunt
http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html
Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
This is a free driver solutions
which will automatically search for and find the correct driver
You will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.
Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.
It might take some time being free

No video output


If your LCD TFT has both a DVI and a standard VGA video input then you need to select the correct video input on your monitor.

I have a thin red vertical line on my monitor. It's there even when the HD cable is unhooked, and there is no input. It appeared during a youtube video I was watching and now wont go away.


The LCD just happen to die, the TFT (Thin Film Transistor) driver circuits which is part of the LCD panel went bad and stuck on, not much you can do but replacing the panel, not worth it.

Dell e173fpc Display Issue


Check if the cable connected to your monitor and video card is fix and secure.. Check also if the video card is properly seated in the motherboard.... Try to check using other computer if the video card is working..

If the test is all ok.. then the last option will be to check the backlight inverter of your monitor....To do this, you need to bring the monitor to a credible technician to have it replace..



much appreciated if you could rate this help..thanks..

What does the green/white wire connect to on my jensen vm9312hd? Says it is reverse +


Rear View Camera Input: The VM9313 features a composite video input and a green/white wire lead attached to the harness for connection of a rear view camera. If a rear-view video camera is connected, the unit is on, and the TFT monitor is retracted inside the unit, the TFT monitor automatically moves into the viewing position and Camera modes is selected upon shifting into Reverse gear. When shifting into Drive gear, the TFT monitor is retracted back inside the unit. If the monitor is already in a viewing position and in display mode, the monitor automatically switches to Camera mode upon shifting into Reverse. When the reverse driving stops, the monitor returns to its original input display mode. You can choose for the monitor to display a Mirror mode image or a Normal mode image from the rear-view camera.

Dell E173FPc 17" TFT when turned on goes black


Hi Gaz,

First, verify the monitor is functional.
Monitor STFC (Self Test Feature Check)
Turn off the monitor
Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket to remove any surge protectors or APCs from the troubleshooting equation
Unplug the monitor video cable from the back of the computer
Turn on the monitor
The floating dialog box should appear on screen against a black background.
If the issue appears during the STFC, the monitor is defective. What are the results please?

INPUT SIGNAL OUT OF RANGE


some how your screen resolution has changed above or below what your monitor can display. you need to boot your computer using another monitor that can work with the resolution your computer has switched to(i used a spare crt monitor when it happened to me) change your resolution in display properties to a normal level like 1027x768, and while the computer is on swap the monitor cables to verify the lcd is working.
It is perfectly safe to unplug the video cable and plug it back in while the computer is turnned on.
