Question about Princeton Digital VL1916 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Using with a Mac

I connected my Princeton VL1916 to my MacBook from the DVI-D with a mini DVI adapter from Apple. Seemed to be working but after a while (approx 20 min) the mouse stopped working with the Princeton and become active on my MacBook.  I checked all my connections then shut everything down - it worked again for a short time & then lost connection a second time.  Do I need drivers or....?

Looks like a power save program has hibernated your monitor. Look in Control panel settings to see if the power settings hibernate your monitor. Reset to never and this may fix your problem.

Drivers usually do not fail after 20 mins it is usually a software option set incorrectly.

Also, check the Bios program for correct settings or options.

I haven't had a Macintoch in a while but, this may give you some where to look for the solution

Good Luck

What cable is needed to stream Netflix to a Macbook?

If you want to use a TV as a secondary or mirrored monitor. All you would need is a Mini-DVI to HDMI adapter. Use the adapter to connect an HDMI cable between your computer and the TV. Once connected you will have an option to use it as a secondary or mirrored (exact copy of what is on your laptop) monitor. If you have one of the newer macbook pros you need a Mini Display port to HDMI adapter.

I'm trying to plug my laptop into a tv to display my desktop and I can't seem to do it. I got a vga adapter and cord that is plugged into both the tv and laptop. What am I doing wrong?

The 13" White MacBook 2.0GHz has a mini-DVI out port. The adapter you need is
Apple Mini DVI to VGA Adapter
On the TV side, more information is needed. You need to specify what ports on the TV you are using for your signal, and what kind of adapter cable you are using. I suspect this is the component or connection where your problem lies.

Is these a driver to get USB connection to macbook

Are you asking if there is an adapter? There actually is an adapter (USB to S-Video) that will work between the two. However, with my MacBook C2D 2.4 GHZ, I use mini DVI to VGA adapter. This allows instant laptop to projector picture and sound. You can use it for anything from powerpoint to movies or even as a giant monitor. The mini-DVI to VGA adapter can be purchased at Best Buy for less than $20. Look for it in the accessory aisle near the Apple machines. IMO, this is a priceless addition to your MacBook. I hope this helps! Please remember to vote if it does.

I have connected my macbook to my tv using mini

Later MacBook (Pro) use a mini-DVI connector that does not pass analog needed for composite or S-video. Was yours ever working? And most DVI connectors do not pass sound as seen by your cabling. You cannot detect display through RCA. You just set it in Sys Prefs :: Displays, try some other settings, although your seem right.
I have a white early-2009 MacBook and mini-DVI to HDMI adapter (monoprice <$10) and HDMI cable and have not connected the TOS-link for sound, yet--just slideshows at 1920x1080. You will get a much better picture digitally. -Ken
