KDS RAD-5 monitor set up

Where is the power strip? I've plugged in the monitor to my existing PC but can't find where to plug it in to a power source. Am I missing something obvious?

The AC Adapter at this time can be found on Apex Battery's site, http://www.apexbattery.com/kds-radius-rad-5-monitor-ac-adapter-ac-e10.html

The part number is AC-E10. It's priced at $47.66 as a markdown from their regular price of $79.99. Considering I bought the monitor for $50 from someone on Craigslist, I think I'll pass on such a high price and see if I can find one on Ebay, personally, but it's your call. For What It's Worth, the monitor has some great reviews on CNet.

The Rad-5 uses a 12v AC adapter. On the monitor's video cable is an extra single wire that plugs into the AC adapter.

The monitor you bought usually have a bundle of power cord. there is monitor that can connect the power to the power supply of the cpu it's depend the type of the cord is given to you. If the cord is with the plug in the one end of the cord you need to plug in directly to the power source it's like 110V or 220V

My computer turns on i hear it run fine but my monitor wont turn on like if its on sleep mode and wont come on ?


I need more information. If you are running Windows, press F12 while the computer is booting up. If you don't see anything on the screen, then we can rule out a software issue.

Next, is the monitor plugged in correctly? Check both the power cord and the video cable for damaged or missing pins.

Try plugging in a different monitor, does the problem still exist? If so, you more than likely have a faulty video card.

Can I swich off my TV when using as a computer monitor


I don't think so. It's like shutting down a Desktop with a Monitor, Both have to be switched off. They have two power sources, two AC plugs. Unless you put all plugs on a power strip ,with a on/off switch, and switch off at the power switch.

seems silly, but did you remember to plug it in? If you used a power strip, did you remember to make sure the strip is turned on?

Make sure the connection is plugged into the machine.

My Gateway DX 4300-05 won't start. Not even the power supply. Does the motherboard have a reset?


If I am reading the frist part of your stament correctly, the power supply does not even kick on when you press the power button. Don not unplug anything from the inside of the computer at this time, instead check your power cord and make sure it is plugged in thightly to both the computer and power strip. Check to make sure the power strip is on, plug something else (like a light) and test the power strip. If the item does not come on, then you may have a bad power strip. To confirm plug the item you are testing with into the outlet the power strip is plugged in to and see if it works. If not your outlet may be bad, contact an electrician. If everything works, but the power supply is still not kicking on, you possibly have a bad power supply. You will need to pick up a replacement power supply and install it in the computer. This is were you unplug everything wire bundle that comes from the power supply to the mother board (paying attention to what was plugged in where). Take the new power supply, install it, plug everything back in. Now try the power button. If this fails then yes you have a bad mother board.

I know most computer retailers that offer repairs, have a device to check the power supply. A good repair place will check this at little or no cost to you, if you agree to let them install the replacement if it is bad (they will charge you for the power supply and installation of it).

I hope this helps

When i cleaned my dell demension i put everything back exactly how it was now when i turn on my computer none of my external devices mouse pc screen keyboard is not turning on i need help


I would first check and verify that the electrical outlet or power strip that they are plugged into is working. If a plug gets in a bind it could have blown a fuse on the power strip or the power strip might have a reset switch on it. Or the power strip might have failed. If you have a uninteruptable powersupply that you plug everything into you will need to confirm that it is working as well, test it and look for reset buttons or a fuse holder on it. Your electrical cords could have been pulled out from the wall outlet itself while cleaning sometimes even wall outlets if put in a bind from pressure will blow a fuse or the cord might pull out just enough that it is not making a good connection.
You might get a lamp with a bulb that you know works and plug it into the same electrical receptical that you have the dell computers power cord plugged into and then test the monitor power source the same way.
If the outlets or power strip are getting power and that is confirmed by testing them, and then you plug in the Monitor and Dell power cords into the sources that you have confirmed are getting power, and they do not come on we have a different problem.
If the monitor is hooked up wrong to the computer or not even hooked to the computer the light should come on on the front of the monitor incicating that it is getting power. If you plug it into a confirmed working electrical outlet the light should come on on the power button of the monitor. If it does not come on then somehting might hve possibly damaged all of the epuipment that was plugged in like a power spike on the electrical lines going into your home, this would be very rare but not impossible.
I am sorry for all of the senerios but you were not really clear on what you were using as power sources going to the equipment and I wanted to try and cover the most common possibilities in one email. Please let me know if this helps

The monitor will not come on when i turn it on


1. - Check for power at the socket. (plug in something else)

2. - Check for power at the power cable. (plug the cable into something else you know works)

3. - Plug into monitor, and see if ANYTHING lights up when the power switch is turned ON.

4. - If you get some indication of power, try a new cable to the PC, or plug into different PC. That will localize if it's the monitor, the cable, or the PC.

Good luck!

The monitor was working one day and the next day, it would not come on, screen black. My grandson has had the monitor for almost three years.


Hi,
I'll hope for the best and assume the simple fix first. Check the plug at the back of the monitor to insure it wasn't pulled out slightly. Sometimes, moving something around can cuse the plug to lose proper connection.
Also, check the power source to insure that you have power to the unit. We had a lightening storm recently and the power strip surge protector did it's job. I turned it back on and everything powered up again.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

After a short power outage (2 minutes max) my monitor ( acer al1711)cannot display green. Is the problem the monitor or the drivers?


It sounds like a surge may have damaged the monitor. Try rebooting your system, and if that doesn't work, reinstall the drivers. If the problem persists, the monitor may have been damaged by a power surge and it may have to be serviced/replaced.

I hope this helps :)

Best Regards,

James

System will not boot when monitors turned on


This may not be a video problem at all (hardware or software).

You say your "monitors" and it makes me wonder just how much you have plugged in to each of your power strips. Or extension cor

If you have a UPS, then you can take full advantage of all of the plug ports. BUT if you are using POWER STRIPS (these do NOT protect against power surges), then you need to look at what you have plugged in. Some big devices (system unit or "CPU" as some people call it, printer-especially the AIOs, MONITOR) pull quite a bit of electricity, moreso than speakers, a modem, or other small devices). Sometimes you need to have the big components plugged in to their own power source in order to work. You can't have them plugged together because there's just not enough power to go around.

I would try to spread the power around the room a little more, and then see if the system boots. Don't go rewiring your house, if it does!!! LOL. It's the computer systems we are using these days. I've also had fax machines, routers, and a few other things not want to work because they weren't getting their share of the "juice".

No Power


There is a whole lot the typical user can check but here is the list: -Disconnect the power plug from the power strip and plug directly into a tested wall socket. Sometimes the power strip sockets go bad. -Try another working power cord. -When you plug in the power cord do any of the monitor LEDs com on?
