Re: no signal box

Do you get any video on the LCD like a menu or something? if the screen has power and you are sure your computer is putting out a video signal it may be the inverter board on the LCD, this board feeds hi-voltage to the lamps that displays a screen and is a common problem with all LCD screens.

Hope this helps
thanks for your rating

If you see a message box that says "Power Saving Mode" after pressing the power button, then it simply means that the monitor/display is not detecting the computer. Check the connection/cable between the display and the computer and make sure your computer is not in standby mode by moving your mouse.
From what you stated in your problem, you dont need a inverter or a bulb. If you have any image like the message box displayed then its working fine. It just isnt seeing any signal changes on the input and therefore goes into power saving mde. Try another cable or hook it up to a different computer to check the cable.

Have a nx1932w; worked fine until this morning; turn on the monitor (using it as tv) the logo is in black and white and it says no signal - can't even get menu button to work.

the most common problem with LCDs today is failing electrolytic capacitors, especially in the power supply section. Look for bulging, leaking, blown or missing capacitors and replace them.

No signal on tv

Your Samsung has an Input Source button on the remote. If you are getting a "No Signal" message, you either have no cable, dish, antenna, or HDMI input to the television or have the wrong source selected. With the television turned on and/or a cable box, dish etc turned on, select all of your sources until a picture appears.

No signal on computer moniter

1. Check your cable
2. check your cable pins make sure there not bent.
3. Check your video card make sure its putting out the correct resolution for the monitor.

No signal is just what it is. You may have a bad cable,bent pin or video card is not operational.

Things you can try.

Hook it up to a diffrent computer
Check the pins on the cable.

Worse case would be the little board inside where the connector is could be bad.

Thanks I hope this helps

I have my polaroid hooked up with an hdmi cable

Thats because your TV is not high definition and cannot process the high def signal. serial hook up does not give a highh def signal.

Why won't the HD channels come in on my lg flat screen monitor? We changed the cable box and everything. Any suggestions?

The first thing you need is the HD tuner. Since you stated that you changed the cable box I will assume that means it's HD ready.
So you have HD signal coming in to the cable box box by-way of a coaxial cable. Now you need to get that HD signal to the monitor. For this connection the standard coaxial cable normally used between the TV and cable box will not do the job. How many connection options you have depends entirely on the what is available on the monitor.
Normally there are three choices. Your monitor could have anyone of these, a combination of them or none if it's not HD ready.
They are Component cable, HDMI and DVI.
Component is a combination of three RCA type (red, blue, and green), connectors. Simply connect the "Component Out" from the cable box to the "Component In" on the monitor.
HDMI cable looks similar to a computer monitor cable but bigger. Same goes for this one. Connect the "HDMI Out" from the cable box to the "HDMI In" on the monitor.
An indirect connection can also be made if your monitor has a "DVI In" jack by using a cable that will allow you to come from the "Out" connection of either the HDMI or Component on the cable box to the "DVI In" on the monitor.
If you are unclear about anything or you have any other questions please just ask and I'll try and help out.

When I plug in my hdmi set top box my monitor says no signal

If an HDMI cable won't work, try Component Cables.

I went through the same hassle as you.

Can't get picture

Hello matthew95765,
The TV is working, the message is coming from the dish box. What you need to do is to determine if the dish box is connected to the dish and that it has signal at the box, because the message it is delivering to the TV is that it is not receiving signal from the satellite. so you have to check the connection at the satellite and at the box because those are the only point that can generate the error you are getting.
I hope this helps,
Thank you,
