Re: Proper Monitor Cable needed and PS Cable!
These cables can be bought at a store where they deal in PC's and any such high end electronics.
No specifications needed. Just tell the dealer the model number of your monitor and ask for the required cables. If he has a manual the he should refer it if he too is doubtful about anything.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If the monitor indicates "No Sync" Make sure your video cable is a high density DB15 end. If it is only 9 pins, you have a DB9 cable or connection. Also make sure the video you have it attached to is enabled and is also a high density DB15. (it will have 3 rows off pins. The DB9 will have 2 rows)
If those are okay it may be broken wire in the cable or on the monitor's DB15 connector/connection.
Connect the monitor cable to the 15 pin monitor receptacle on the rear of your PC
Connect your PS-2 mouse to the PS-2 mouse connector (usually colored green) on the rear of your PC. (If you have a USB mouse, connect it to any USB receptacle on your PC)
Connect AC power cords from your AC power (wall) receptacles to your monitor and to your PC' powr supply's AC connector.
This completes the installation, you can now turn on the power switches on your monitor and computer.

You can purchase replacement LCD monitor power supplies in numerous places, for example on eBay or in online shops. You can ask a seller to assist you in selecting a proper one. The most popular specs for such monitor supply would be 12V and a minimum of 5A current rating; the higher current rating on the PS the better, you will have more reserve.
mike_garzan, Your monitor will need some work done on it!! Do you know the "flashlight trick" that every owner of an LCD monitor with "cold cathode-fluorescent-lamps" should know how to do when the BLACK screen of death makes it presence known? Do this test first! It is a very easy test to do. 1. With a KNOWN GOOD pc fully booted to the WIN-desktop showing on a GOOD Monitor have a friend tap the CTRL key on the keyboard every 30 seconds or move the mouse to ensure that the pc won't go into sleep mode. 2. Power off the good monitor and disconnect it from the pc. Now reconnect the TTX9151 to the pc and wall outlet power. 3. Then and only then turn on the monitor and make note of what happens. Did you see or not see the WIN-desktop appear?
4. Now for the flashlight test. Even though the LCD panel appears BLACK, shine a bright flashlight about 1" from the screen's lower left corner and make note if you can see the Windows START icon even though the screen appears to be BLACK. 5. Turn off TTX9151 or yank the plug from wall outlet, and disconnect from pc. TEST IS DONE. Reconnect good monitor to pc to get back online. The test was to evaluate the current status of the "switch-mode-power-supply" and the CCFL inverter circuit DC source. If you could SEE something on the BLACK screen then you know that half of the SMPS is working and sourcing voltage (+5 or +3.3v) to power the vga/lcd interface board! It also means that the SMPS is not in FULL SHUTDOWN mode and only has a problem sourcing voltage(+12v to +18v) to the CCFL inverter circuit which generates 800v to 1200v ac to light-up the CCFL's that are hung across the rear of your LCD panel to produce the WHITE LIGHT needed to see what is on the screen. Now, if you didn't see the WIN-desktop, then the SMPS is probably in complete SHUTDOWN mode trying to save itself from a CATASTROPHIC, NONRECOVERABLE failure! (eg. smoke and fire) Put the TTX9151 in a safe place and get back to me with results of the TEST. lmistyrel and on aim.com or do a comment to your original post above on fixya and I'll give you advice as to what you need to do about getting it repaired or other actions/options you as a consumer/user of LCD displays have open to you. Bye for now. 12fixlouie
I poked around the www.ttx.ca website for you, and found the following blurb:
"A. All models manufactured after 1999 are “plug and play”
compliant, therefore “plug and play” drivers supplied with your specific system
will work the same as the “TTX.inf” driver found on our website.
The monitor needs a power cord and a signal cable. The power cord is a standard 3-prong detachable cord just like the one on nearly every desktop computer and many other electronic appliances.
The signal cable may be one of two types, depending on your computer's video connector. The monitor has connectors for both VGA (a D-shaped connector with 15 pins) and DVI (a rectangular connector) inputs. You need a cable with whichever type of connector fits your computer.
You should be able to find the power cord at Radio Shack, any of the big office supply places, or retailers who sell computers. The signal cable may be available there as well, or you can order from a number of online vendors.
The monitor also allows you to plug in a USB cable from your computer so you can plug in USB devices like a keyboard or mouse. For that you need the same kind of USB cable you would use to connect a printer.
