Question about Televison & Video

ACER LCD Monitor display is too bright!

My Acer AL2671W LCD TV video is terrible. Too bright a screen. I have the DVI (for VGA only) and VGA ports working but the picture is still bright. I have sound on all input connections but I'm missing TV on the TV Tuner input. Just the sound is working there. I have to hard boot the TV/Monitor to get it going as well. With all of the video adjustment turned to the lowest level, I can use it as a PC monitor. I have never used the TV Tuner until now preferring to use a SAT Capture Card for my Video. What part could I replace to get the screen toned down so it doesn't look like the sun on the default setting!

I also have never been able to get the DVI-D input to work using two vid cards, currently using the Geforce 7300. Thanks.

I have my husband's hp monitor and thought I was going to go blind. I turned down the brightness to 0 and it still didn't help that much. I decided to turn down the contrast and it worked. Hope this helps.

Your video card needs to have DVI output port for you to use the DVI cable, otherwise you can just use the VGA cable.
DVI is supposedly t give better pictures due to all digital signals compared to VGA which is analog.

I cant connect my acer aspire 5810 tg with my samsung lcd tv.the tv say "NO SIGNAL"


So here's a quick walk-through of all the methods that I know (if you know any more, please comment) to connect a laptop or PC to your TV:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You'll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC's are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won't find a VGA port on regular TV's though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with "digital" being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
Here's a graphic I created with some pictures of the various cables:

Hope this helps someone! If you have any other ideas or suggestions, please feel free to comment!!! Thanks!

Acer AL2671W 26in problems: (1) sometimes sound but no picture, (2) or screen freezes pink etc. (3) or remote won't turn it on/off (4) or it gives up and says "no signal". Turning it off/on usually solves it temporarily.

Nvidia GeForce 7200 GS PCIE - Multi-Display does not work


This card does not allow you to Multi-Display with the VGA port and the S-video port. If you put a DVI to VGA port adaptor (not supplied) on the DVI port, you can Mulit-Display two VGA monitors and (presumably) a VGA (from the DVI port) and S-video monitor.

This is not explained anywhere and the card does not come with a DVI to VGA port adaptor, so I wa only able to work this out after I bought the DVI to VGA port adaptor.

Acer LCD Monitor AL2671W - screen too bright!


I had the same problem with my TV when I purchased it used. Select the input you are having troubles with and enter "Service Mode" by pressing and holding the "VOL - " button and "CHAN + " buttons on the TV, simultaneously until the screen flashes red one time.

At this point you will be in service mode. Pressing the "MENU" button will open a service menu, which is different from the typical user menu. From the service menu you can further adjust your image settings until you have a decent picture.

Initially my VGA input looked terribly bright and washed out. Now it looks incredible!

Screen prob.


For flat panel systems there are 2 inputs. DVI using the white cable and VGA. by default flat panels are set to DVI input. hit the menu button on the screen and there should be an option there to change the input video. if this will not work it could be a problem on the video port on your acer computer or it could you might need a new VGA cable.
