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.

We need to narrow things down . If you have a dvd player that has an HDMI output plug that into the HDMI input of the tv with a diffent cable than the one for the sky box. If color is still green then the main board on the tv is bad. If the picture is good then Either the cable used for the sky box is bad or the sky box is bad.

Connecting to HD TV


This TV has no HDMI input socket. It Has a DVI input socket. Therefore you will require an HDMI to DVI converter adapter or an HDMI to DVI cable. The DVI is video only so you will require audio cables from your Sky box (Audio L and R ) which will connect to the back left of your TV (Audio L/R sockets next to the s-video and component video connectors)

If it is two-channel sound, the 'line' inputs should be color-coded as red (right) and white (left).

Samsung le40a lcd - picture quality


Hi - I have some suggestions. The following factors effect picture quality:
1. Source (because LCD TVs have much higher picture quality than traditional CRT "Tube" TVs, the worse your source material, the worse it looks on a LCD TV).
DVD and Sky/Digital TV should look excellent on this TV when connected with a good quality Scart lead (nothing too expensive, but a Oxygen Free Copper Gold lead may help) directly into one of the TV's Scart inputs (avoid using "switching" boxes for multiple equipment).
Also, bear in mind that this is a HUGE screen (40 inches I think) and will REALLY show up bad source material.
The best advice I can give is, if you have HD-ready equipment use HDMI connections for everything (ideally with an HD-uplscaling DVD player which will "improve" the quality of standard DVDs on the TV - I recommend models by Philips) and check that you are in "Movie" or "Cinema" mode on the TV.
Make sure that all of your equipment, like your Sky digibox, is set to 16:9 mode (not 4:3) aswell to preserve the true widescreen aspect ratio.
Hope that helps!
