Dvd player to spare computer monitor cable

I have a Targa DvD player, not recorder, and I would like to play this through a spare computer Monitor.

On the back of the Monitor we only have 8x3 pin connector and another connector.

What cable would I need to be able to do this?

Thank you very much for any help you can give

    Thanks, but not knowing anything about cables, I am still not certain what to buy. The monitor only has a USB port and the 8x3 pin female connection. Which connector do I use for the monitor end, and what should be on the other end to the DVD, which has an S Video, a Yellow Video, the red green and blue male pins and a scart socket.

    Thanks in advance.

It should be a 15 pin VGA cable.

    Confirm you are having 8x3 not 5x3. Normally Monitor VGA ranges 5x3 pins which be 15 female socket and pin on different end of cable.

    What is scart socket how many holes its having .?

Can not get the DVD player to record to our new LCD TV. Worked fine with the older CRT model. It will play OK. Do I need an upconcertter to make this work?

What kind of connection (wire) are you using to connect the DVD player to the TV? Is it composite (RCA, yellow), component (3X RCA, blue, red, green), S-video (Mini-DIN, like a computer keyboard or mouse connector), DVI (Like a wider computer monitor connector), HDMI (Wider and thinner but like a USB connector)?

Headrest monitor says no video. I have 10 inch power connect headrest monitor/DVD player. One plays DVD and the other is a monitor. The DVD player headrest plays movies but the monitor screen is blue and...

Those cables can go bad easily. If you have a meter and know how to use it, try to test continuity on each pin. If that isnt the answer, then either the input of second monitor is faulty, or output of main screen.

Electronic ILLITERATE!!! - nothing recorded from cable tv channel

okay, if you have a cable box (cable out plug to dvd/vcr in), then from the dvd/vcr (cable out plug to tv/monitor). make sure tv/monitor and dvd/vcr are set to ch #3. you swith channels with the cable box ,you are not going to be able to record HBO on dvd (but you can with the vcr), any other cable ch(tnt, history, tbs,we, oxygen and more) is recordable w/ both dvd/vcr

no cable box. take cable wire plug to dvd/vcr in, than other wire is connected to tv/monitor
now go to dvd/vcr with remote, menu, set to catv, scan channels. now when you wish to look at tv the dvd/vcr must be on at all times. again you will not be able to record Premium ch like HBO
hope this help............pls feel free to rate

PC flat screen monitor to DVD player hook-up

It appears that the monitor was designed to work with the display circuits and software driver on a Personal Computer. There is no circuitry in the display to handle the out put of DVD player. A smart TV has the circuitry. the display does not.
