Re: No input on on screen
Sounds like the monitor has either a bad input jack on it, or the circuit board that receives the signal is broken. Unless the monitor is under warranty, my only suggestion would be trying to find another one of the same model, and replacing the boards.

Any contemporary monitor is able to switch analog/digital mode automatically if connection from signal source to monitor is set up properly.
Connect digital output from your graphic card to DVI input of the monitor. Disconnect any other signal cables from monitor and switch on both devices (PC & monitor). Wait a while. Monitor checks its inputs and a activates digital DVI, because it is only one active input on it.
If none picture excluding error message of monitor is displayed, go through these steps: 1) Check whether your monitor is set for automatic input selection. If monitor buttons have no response try to use analog input to activate screen (any picture, desktop background...) and then get monitor menu access by pressing menu button.
2) Find out what connector type has your graphics card in PC. Possibilities are: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and some their options. See Wikipedia for connector look if you are not sure. Remember that blue D-SUB (VGA) connectors are analogue and you cannot activate digital mode through analog VGA cable.
3) Use appropriate cable to connect monitor to PC. Example: Your PC has HDMI output. Use HDMi-to-DVI cable. Your monitor input is DVI and common DVI-DVI cable is not suitable in case you have PC with the HDMI. Note that DVI-to-DVI, DisplayPort-to-DVI etc. cables are available. You must buy right one.
Be aware that "Auto" button is inactive in digital mode of monitor.
Is the monitor set to the correct input source? Is the cable fully seated on both the computer and the monitor? Try a new cable. Is the computer sending the video signal to that port that has the cable? Laptops sometimes need the external video port enabled in the BIOS, for example. Check your manual to access the BIOS; frequently it is F1, F2 or ESC pressed before the OS starts to load. Some newer desktop computers do not have the VGA port enabled initially as well.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (on my Win7 desktop and laptop, to turn on a second monitor it is under Screen Resolution (shortcut from the desktop by right-clicking anywhere there isn't an icon or running program).)
Take a look at the back of the monitor there must be a cable which is connected at the back of your computer tower.
If you take a look at the back of your computer tower you will see that cable has a big plug with two screws on the top of it. It could be blue in color or may be grey. ( The name of that cable is Video cable )
Now what you have to do is to take that cable out of the computer. Now switch on the computer.
If you see a message on the screen saying " NO INPUT SIGNAL " :- That means your monitor is fine. If it does not shows that. Then your monitor is bad.
Remember the power cable of the monitor should be connected while doing the above steps.
Now incase you can see the "NO INPUT SIGNAL " message on the screen. Even then the problem persist.
It might be possible that the Video cable has gone bad. You need to consult a hardware technician for your monitor.
Couple of items come to mind. In the menu of the receiver, is there a way to choose video and RGB? Set the receiver to SAT Connect the HD Cable Box to SAT Check the TV is on Monitor RGB. Check the input being used by the monitor RGB cables is selected on the TV. Have a picture? NO, receiver has issues. Yes? Do this with each input to confirm they work. You can reset the whole receiver to factory by holding the tone button down and holding the standby button for three seconds. (This clears your speaker setups, too.)
Hi, I don't think the problem is with your monitor. Your monitor sounds like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The monitor is supposed to turn off if there's no cable attached, which means there's no signal input. When the screen goes black, does the power light stay on and turn orange? or does it go off as well? I would recommend that you lower your screen resolution to 1280x1024 or lower in the Display Properties window, then remove your primary monitor, and connect the monitor to your desktop computer. You should see it light up when connected. The monitor auto-senses when there's a computer attached to the cable and when there's a signal. If it doesn't see a signal, it goes black to save power.
The picture of no input goes off because monitors that do not recieve input go to sleep mode in an instant.
There are four possible causes. First, the cable is not firmly connected to either port, or the cable is damaged. Second, your graphics card could be damaged. Third, the resolution currently set for the machine could be set to a resolution that is too big for your monitor to support, or four, you could have switched your video input. You can change the video input from VGA to DVI and vice versa using the monitor's buttons. The input you want to recieve is from the VGA, though you are probably recieving DVI right now. Apart from that, I cannot help you further as you are not too specific with your information.
Ok, hook the cable box up to the reciever audio/video, find the monitor out from the reciever and plug it in to the TV input. sound will come from the reciever this way onto your speakers and the Tv will act as a monitor
Hello, I hope this message can help you, After reviewing the Panasonic TV info, and the Yamaha reciever info., I have found on page 19 of your owners manual for the Yamaha reciecver that you can connect the the cable box HDMI cable to the reciever, but the reciever needs to connect to the T.V. HDMI.
I see your T.V. has S-video in and your reciever has S-video out, what about your cable box if it has S-video than I would connect all your device together through the S-video jacks.
A further note is you can't down grade the signal from the cable box through the reciever to the T.V., so even though the technology is there on your cable box, it's not there on the T.V.. On that note there is 2 options 1) buy a new T.V. with HDMI inputs. 2) connect the system together using S-video or component cables (RCA). It will give you almost the same quailty if you use good cables. I hope this will help you and I look forward to helping you in the future.
