Hi,

With the indulgence of IB4G2008...

Not possible without a converter adapter at the same time signal losses, interference and noisy video if CAT5E cable used.

What I would suggest is to use coaxial cable (RG59) instead of the CAT5E. One end would be terminated with ta BNC male to connect to the camera. The other end would have to be terminated either with an RCA male. Before connecting to the VGA (15pin) input of the monitor, it would have to be processed by a converter/adapter. Here are some examples:
1. Composite Video to VGA adapter;
2. some high end adapters are shown here;
3. several shown here would also work.

In case you would like a DIY, this might interest you.

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.

I have amazon prime on my desktop can ihook it to my tv


You should be able to discount your monitor cable from the back of the monitor and then connect it to the TV via the VGA port, you r other option if the graphics card supports it would be to connect via a HDMI cable and run the TV as a 2nd screen.

Hp slimline s3620f ;vga no signal to monitor


Make sure the connecting vga cable that goes from the computer to the monitor is secure and tight on both ends.

Remove the VGA Cable end that goes into the computer and look inside of it to see if any of the connecting pins or prongs are bent. It will look like some are missing but this is normal. Make sure none of them are bent and not going into the computer to make the connection correctly.

If after trying the two things above and you still have a problem I would suspect your Video Card in the computer is bad. Try connecting another monitor to the computer, if it does the same thing and give you a No Signal Message, your video card needs to be replaced. If you try another monitor and it works, then the problem is your monitor, so replace it.

I want to connect a HP w2207 monitor to a HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC. What is the best way to do this?


Your HP w2207 monitor has support for both VGA and DVI inputs. This therefore means that you can connect your HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC via either of these two connectors.

VGA is the blue coloured port on the rear of your monitor.
DVI is the white coloured rectangular port located on the rear of your monitor.

DVI is the better connection of the two as it is a digital connection, so use this one if you can, alternatively you can use the blue coloured VGA cable to connect your monitor to your computer.

It all depends on which output, either DVI or VGA is found on your Computer. Remember VGA is the Blue coloured port and DVI is the blue coloured port.

All the best!

Setup belkin wireless network


Hi,
1.Connect a Cat5 cable into the Ethernet port on the back of your cable or DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "Connect to Modem Internet/WAN" port on the back of the Belkin Router.
2.Connect a Cat5 cable into the "Ethernet" port on the back of any desktop or stationary computers and then plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports on the back of the Belkin Router. Start with port one and work your way up with subsequent computer connections.
3.Turn the Belkin Router on by plugging the router into a power outlet. Allow 30 seconds for the router to fully boot up. All computers tethered to the modem via a Cat5 cable have access to the Internet.
4.Open the Wi-Fi Wizard on your laptop and turn on the Wi-Fi antenna. Once turned on, the Wizard finds all network connections in your area. Connect to your network to establish an Internet connection. Complete this step for each computer not tethered to the Belkin Router with a Cat5 cable.

The screen flick when connected to Samsing Sync


Hello there!

Screen flickering can be caused by instability of cable you are using, or it can be also caused by difference between power input, so check your power plug ,where your monitor and pc are plugged, make sure they are ok for your region, and check those cabels. Also check settings on monitor for what input you are using DVI or VGA or both at the same time.

I show on monitor "no signal" Check Signal Cable


Check that the "data" cable between your computer and your monitor is tightly connected at each end.

Connect the VGA-output port from a laptop computer to the monitor, to see if the monitor works when connected to a different computer.

Connect a different monitor to the VGA-output port on your computer, to see if that monitor works.

Failing all the above, the video-card on your computer is the problem, and needs to be replaced.

My monitor is getting red color is there any solution


Hello !

Well, there is a problem with either your monitor, VGA cable or video card.

If you wiggle the VGA cable (the cable connected from your monitor to computer) and the color changes, the VGA cable is faulty.

Either connect your monitor to a different computer or connect a different monitor to your computer to see the results.

If your monitor works on another computer, your video card is faulty. If a different monitor works on your computer, then your monitor is faulty.

Hope this helps.
