Eiki LC-xnb4m computer connection issue

I just purchased this unit and cannot get it to recognize my computer. If I attach the 15 pin connector / DVI-I, it makes my compuer screen go black, and navigating into the menu on the projector shows no signal. When I attach a s-video cable or the USB 2 cable there is no change at all, and the signal is still not acknowledged.

    I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, very new. I plugged in the Eiki LC XNB3 and the computer screen was projected for a few seconds then stopped and now I can't get it to project my computer at all.

I actually fixed it myself--I found another site that said for Dell systems, you need to hold down the Fn button (bottom left) and push F8 and then it recognizes the projector. Solved the problem immediately!

Sometimes you have to change resolutions on the computer display to a lower resolution for the projector to recognize it. try 800x600 first and then make sure your inputs are activated in the menu. sometimes this can be a problem. but most projectors auto recognize when something is plugged in. Let me know if this helps you. Thanks Jay

Hi i am looking for vga cable 9 Pin Female to 15 Pin Female thanks


The 9-pin port on your PC tower is NOT a video port, it is a serial data port. All VGA connectors are 15-pin. Hooking up to the 9-pin port will not get you a picture. There should be a VGA port on the PC, or else a DVI an/or HDMI port. You can get DVI-to-VGA adapters that work, but only if the DVI port is an analog DVI, not if it is a digital DVI (DVI-D or DVI-DD).

I need to connect a VGA dell monitor my Toshiba Laptop


HDMI is digital
VGA (the 15 pin connector) is analog.
If your connector has the digital to analog interface it should work, but likely it does not have that chip and thus will not work.

Your description of the problem tells me it may never work as you have it connected. Possibly it might be that the monitor is required to be powered on before the laptop is booted, but that only works in some cases.

I have also seen some work if a 2-step connector is used.
VGA to DVI connector, followed by DVI to HDMI connector.
DVI was the step toward digital that came before the HDMI standard was implemented and was only partially digital. DVI and VGA do not carry control signals nor audio. HDMI carries both those as well as the video.

YMMV but I think it would be cheaper and more efficient to actually purchase a monitor with a digital input (HDMI or DVI).
Without the digital/analog converter interface a digital output device (your laptop with HDMI out) can never operate an analog device (your Dell monitor with VGA input).

Missing adapter or plug in connection to 15 balance mointor model 2015


The Balance CM2015 monitor uses a VGA connector,

http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Balance-CM2015-15-LCD-Monitor-Black-/52125929

(The above is for reference only. Not advertising)

A VGA connector is also referred to as a 15-pin D-Sub connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

This is information on a DVI cable, and DVI connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

If this is the monitor cable you have, you need this type of adapter,

http://www.directron.com/dviadapter.html

Now LOOK closely.
This adapter has male pins that stick out, and go into a female VGA connector on the monitor. The DVI side of this adapter has socket holes, for a male DVI cable.

IF, your monitor has a male VGA connector on it, and the DVI cable you have has socket holes, you need this adapter,

http://www.directron.com/dvitovga.html

If your monitor cable is not a DVI cable, post back with the style it is.
If nothing else post how many pins are in the connector on the cable, and how they are arranged.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

A blue display box continually pops up with Input Select D sub DVI. I am thinking it is something to do with the monitor. What is wrong?


This monitor has two types of video inputs, a 15 pin VGA D-sub connector and a DVI connector.
If the video card has a 15 pin D-Sub then connect the video cable to the 15 pin D-Sub connector on the monitor.
If the video connectors are DVI then connect the video card and monitor with a DVI video cable.
You will also need to configure the monitor for either the D-Sub or DVI video input.

Things You'll Need:
VGA to VGA cable

DVI to VGA adapter (as needed)

How to Connect a Computer to an Emerson TV

1
Purchase a VGA cable and a DVI to VGA converter (if needed). The VGA cable is a cable with blue attachments on either end that contains a total of 15 pins (arranged in a 5x3 lineup). You will only need the VGA to DVI adapter if your computer does not have a blue VGA connector on the back.
2
Attach the VGA cable to the VGA port on the back of your computer (going through the DVI to VGA adapter if necessary). When screwing the connector in, alternate between the two sides periodically. Tighten one side of the connector a little, then tighten the other side of the connector to match. This will ensure a tight connection and an optimal picture.
3
Attach the VGA cable to the back of your Emerson television, utilizing the same alternating tightening method that you used to secure the cable to your computer.
4
Use the menu button on the Emerson TV to select a new "source." Choose "VGA" input, then confirm that by pressing the OK button (normally the volume+ button on most televisions). The television should immediately switch to display the computer's output. If it takes you to a blue screen instead, simply restart the computer in order to reset the connection.
