Problem with the monitor


first of all,try to connect the cable to other device(laptop) to see if is working,because if you receive the message"No signal" then the monitor is working but the cable/signal did not cross to the monitor,then is working with other device then try again or check if you can connect the monitor with different port if you monitor has one vga/dvi or hdmi.

I have a samsung 17'' lcd monitor.when i power on my monitor without data cable i got a message on screen CHECK SIGNAL CABLE.when i connect data cable my lcd is going to power off.please help?

The message says that the monitor doesn't receives signal - which is normal. Since the problem appears only after you plug in the cable in means that the problem is located there - something is wrong with your pc, most likely the video card has died.

Mitsubishi diamond pro says "no signal"?

You have tried the monitor on more than one known good computer, yes?

I believe about 4" inside this monitor in the back the vga cable or connector connects to a board with an in-line connector. Can you see if this connector (internal to the monitor) in connected?

Good luck...
