Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Digital mode of VX2035wm has stopped working

My 20" monitor was purchased in December of 2006. I have an iMac on the analog side and a MacBook on the digital. Recently, the digital began to get temperamental and required button pushing and unplugging at the computer to get the monitor to work. Today, I can't get it to work. Analog is fine.

I recognize the model number as a Viewsonic model.

Check the digital input using another computer to make sure it's the monitor.

If you're brave enough, do this:

Open the unit and check to see if any of the capacitors in the power supply or other boards look domed or vented on the top.

Replace any capacitors accordingly. Use the same value capacitors. Most often, 1000uF 16V or 25V, 470uF at 16 or 25V, 220uF at 16V or 25V.

Capacitors are used to remove ripple from the switching power supply. This ripple, or noise could cause digital circuits to act up. Usually it's easy to spot the bad ones. Good ones look like a perfect cylinder. If they look swollen on the top they are likely bad.

If you do this and it does not solve the problem, the main board could be going bad and require replacement, You should be able to order one from your local Viewsonic service shop. By the way, that model is fairly new. Remember that Viewsonic monitors carry a three year warranty.

Replace iMac g5 20 hard drive


Hi John
Try reinstalling via your macbook pro but this way round.Put the Leopard Disk into the Macbook and then start the Macbook in Target mode.on the iMac start it up and hold down the Option (or Alt) key then wait.after a short while you will be offered the HD in the MacBook and the DVD. Choose the DVD and see what happens.
What happens when you do it the other war arounds is that you are installing a startup system for the MacBook onto the HD of the G5 and not the system for the G5. The installer uses the firmware of the motherboard that is running the install to select the correct version.
Another issue is that the disk formatting may be wrong. it's unlikely seeing that you used disk utility from the DVD, but it is possible.
Let us know how you get on.

Getting a new flat panel lcd screen to work on my


It should work right out of the box, although with imac's you may need to install the software that came with the monitor first. Try Safe mode if it won't show up any other way, safe mode skips the drivers for the most part, it may allow you to see the installation disk, install the drivers and whicever app's u need from the disk. Also make sure you have the correct connector on both ends and the cable that came with the new moniitor, "not the old one", that may be it right there. The pins are different on different systems. Let me know what happened, if your old monitor works, it's a setting, try running multi monitors thru video properties menu so you can se what's the heck is goin on with the installation disk, good luck

LG Flatron W2252TQ 22'' monitor not working in digital mode


try to set your screen resolution to maximum using Display Settings in windows. Besides, are all software drivers for this monitor loaded and properly installed? Right click My Computer=>Properties. select hardware => device manager. Make sure video icons are not marked with question marks. if they are, install monitor drivers shipped with your monitor.

regards!

It sounds like your monitor is looking for an analog signal from the D-SUB connector while you are using the DVI connector. Go into the monitor's main menu and choose Input Select. Change the setting to Digital. You should now see yourr desktop.

Monitor


Double check the monitor cable, both going to the monitor, and going to the computer. Ensure it's securely connected. If this doesn't change anything, try rebooting your computer. When the power light flashes, it's in sleep mode and doesn't detect either an analog or digital signal - so either your computer has gone into sleep mode (you can awaken it by hitting any key or moving the mouse) or the cable isn't attached securely. Since your computer is brand new, it's unlikely that anything has broken down already. Another thing to check is to make sure that the resolution in your Display Settings is the correct resolution for the monitor - although it's hard to do this if you can't see what you're doing.

Best of luck, hope this helps!
