Could the dvi input be knackerd on the monitor

Hello my name is arran . I have a 40 inch syncmaster and was getting a picture and sound when conected to my HD sky box through the dvi input on the monitor. After a power cut I turn everything back on to find I'm now getting sound and no picture when rgb2 is selected. I have tryed 3 new HD sky boxes 2 hdmi leads and a new connector. Still nothing. I'm thinking could it be damage to the input on the monitor itself as I can get picture on video input but no sound and if I do picture in picture on rgb2 input I get half a picture on screen and sound need help thank you.

SOURCE: hdmi to dvi

This message may occur if the signal from the video adapter exceeds the scan range of the monitor (monitor not HD enabled).

The video adapter setting on PS3 for updating the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor.

When turning on my computer I get no picture on my screen. I have checked all conections and made sure that they are all properly conected. What needs too be done?


Was your monitor previously working? Is your monitor set to receive input from the cable its connected to? There are different inputs for monitors usually. Make sure your monitor is set to receive input from the cable (vga, hdmi, DVI, ect.). If your monitor is very old, it may just be that's it's giving out. If your monitor is new, it may be that it wasn't working to begin with. If its not the connectors, then the monitor may just not be working.

Syncmaster 940 mw says 'digital' on the front but I cannot receive digital tv after the switchover. Do I need a set top box?


Hello,

Yes, You will need a digital decoder box. The tuner in the Samsung 940MW TV does not decode digital signals. The digital input that you are seeing is for the DVI video input on the back that you use when you connect the unit to a DVI port on a computer. Any of the digital decoder boxes from Radio Shack, Walmart or Best Buy type stores will work just fine.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

I have a 19 inch Gateway HD monitor. The model number is LP1925. When I boot up everything is normal. However, after about 5 minutes the screen goes black. I can't get the picture back unless I pull out...


I see that this monitor has a DVI input, in additon to the VGA input. I suggest getting a suitable cable to use the DVI input, to see if the fault replicates. If it doesn't, you have identified the problem - an issue with the analogue signal processeing circuitry in either the monitor or the computer. The monitor's auto sleep analogue circuitry, for example, may not be sensing a signal, and going to sleep. BTW, if you use a DVI-DVI cable, you avoid the video signal ever going through an analogue stage, and the image will also be purer.

I have a Samsung 940bw monitor. After pressing the auto button, it does not work anymore. Is there a problem about monitor or is it broken? I am waiting for your help. Thanks.


Hello
damnor01 here to the rescue!

Welcome to Fixya.

Since you pushed the Auto button it is possible that the monitor has changed the input type to a type other than that you are currently using.

For instance it may have chosen to accept VGA input however you have the DVI or HDMI connected.
To fix this you will have to push the auto button again, and possibly again to get it to find your current input channel.
You may need to turn your computer off and then back on again.

You may need to connect your monitor using a different connector, example via VGA, DVI or HDMI. It all depends on the connection you have at present.
Blue Connector is VGA.
White connector is DVI.
HDMI is very narrow conector usually black.

Please be sure to rate this session!
Thanking you

LCD Monitors having multiple inputs have option and option to select and switch between the displays from analog (VGA) or Digital (DVI) inputs. Go to the LCD menu and select input source (DVI)

Cannot get a picture when using DVI cable on my


Check on the monitor OSD the input settings. I am assuming you're not running both inputs simultaneously some monitors detect that since it is an "either or situation"
in rare circumstances it could be the cable as well. Samsung SyncMaster 226CW Owner Manual

Where is the video on a samsung 23 inch syncmaster


I assume you mean video input. It should have both a DVI and VGA input on the back. looking up from underneath it is easily visible. I do not think it has HDMI, so if you're looking for HDMI input, you won't find it, get an adapter.

Dvi to vga


You will not benefit from the DVI input unless you have DVI output on your computer. The great advantage of DVI is that the picture is transferred in digital form all the way from your computer to the individual pixels on the monitor. If you only have VGA output on your computer then you will never get a better picture than by using a good quality VGA cable to link that to the VGA input on your monitor.

The DVI plug is designed to carry both digital and analogue (VGA) signals on the various pins, so "adaptors" exist to allow a VGA monitor to attach to a DVI output on a computer. Monitors may also support VGA input from their corresponding DVI input sockets, but the picture quality will never be better than by using a good VGA cable because it is still not using the digital capability of the DVI interface. What's more, because you may need more adaptors and thinner conductors in the cable, you will probably achieve a marginally poorer picture than with VGA to VGA.

When you next buy a PC or a new video card, get one with DVI to take advantage of your new monitor. In the meantime, your best bet is a quality VGA to VGA link.

Sorry that's not what you were wanting to hear, but I hope it will help you avoid further frustration.
