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.

Hello
VGA and DVI are not compactable. Your TV has no provision to connect it to computer.

DVI-HDTV Input (Input 1)

Use this DVI-HDTV Input for your external devices with DVI-HDTV output such as a Set-Top-Box, high-band DTV decoders, DVD
players and D-VHS with Digital Content Protection

1. Only DTV format such as 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p are available for DVI-HDTV input.

2. The DVI-HDTV input is NOT compatible when used with a DVD player from a personal computer.

3. When connecting a Set-Top-Box with a copy-protect digital out terminal, a high definition picture can be displayed
on the screen in its digital form
OK.

How do i connect my tv to cpu


This depends a bit on the computer. The only compatible input is the VGA port. (You need a 15-pin VGA monitor cable with ferrite core to avoid interference.) If your computer is a newer model with DVI output but no VGA port, you will also need a DVI to VGA adapter.

I hope this helps.

PC to TV can't seem to get to work.


okay buddy its esay just give me a good rate!

u select:
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.

Trying to hhook up my laptop to my tv and am not getting it to come up


Hi,

There could be several ways that the laptop be hooked up to a TV. It could be through RCA composite video, S-Video, VGA (15pins) and/or DVI. You simply need to check which is available at your laptop and match that port/connector to that of what the TV has. Of course an appropriate cable is also required.

In most instances, it would require that the laptop's Screen Resolution and Screen Refresh Rate be lowered down to match the maximum capacity of the TV.

Additionally, it would be needed to press on the Fn + F? keys of the laptop to cycle through the different settings such as: laptop's display only, laptop & TV displays and TV display only. The F? key would be one in your laptop designated to engaged/enable external monitor (TV). Normally, it would have a monitor icon.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Use bigscreen tv for computer moniter


You can order from the dealer the VGA cable adabtor to go between the computer and the TV. Make sure that the display card in the computer is complient to drive the TV monitor. You will have to look in the specs for both to see if this is so.

You will find that the pictures on a TV set will be very poor compared to a dedicated computer monitor. TV sets are really optimized for TV videos and not for computer applications.
