Question about Microtek C783GM 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor How many hook ups does this monitor have? It went off and I can't figure out what's wrong with it. I see the large thick cord that connects on the back to the computer but I don't see a power cord. Does it have a power cord? Sorry I didn't hook it up.

Monitors need power cords to function, & there is nowhere near enough power in the data cable to power the monitor. So, it sounds like the power cable got pulled out somehow and is now lying on the floor. The power cable will be a small plug like you have on a radio or other similar devices instead of the standard sized plug that older monitors have. Once you plug the power cord back in, it should be fine.

Good luck!

    Typically monitors have a small cover on the back side near the vertical portion of the stand. When you open that cover, you can then see the power plug-in receptacle. More and more, monitors are hiding these plugs from view - so that all you see is the cord coming out.

    I tried finding pictures of the monitor online, but could not locate one to give you a more accurate description of where to find this specific plug-in receptacle. If they have the manual for the monitor, then it should have pictures of the back side and specify precisely where the power plug goes in it.

    Hope this helps.

Monitor says no signal

if no signal the cause is either the source not connected like the pc the vga cord not hooked up or a monitor failure. to isolate weather it was monitor problem, if you have other monitor you can hooked up just to ensure if the cause is with in the monitor. by the way you must also considered the vga cord which need replacement.

I cant figure out which line goes where.

A small diameter thick wall line will hook up to the hot under the sink, and the larger flexable tube (for refuse) will hook up to the drain under the sink. The electrical cord will plug in usually to an outlet under the sink as well. Good luck, best regards.

I just hooked up this monitor princeton monitor VL SERIES vl1918 it is flashing off and on. Help please

There is an electrical problem with either the power cord connected to the monitor or the outlet that it is plugged into.

If its a brand new monitor, return it to the place of purchase and exchange it.

If its a used monitor then I would suspect that someone has given you the wrong power cord for the unit. Sometimes people check to see which cord "fits" the unit and think that its appropriate because they can connect it.

That is not correct when it comes to monitors. Just because a power cord fits by connecting to the monitor does not always mean its appropriate to run it correctly.

Check the voltage requirements on back of the monitor and compare them to the power cord your using with it. If they are appropriate and your still experiencing this problem then the power cord might be bad.

Test this possibility by disconnecting the monitor from the computer and turn it on. Do you see a screen that says "no video" or "no connection"? Does the screen blink the same way as when connected to the pc? If it does, then its the power cord or supply source its connected to. Plug it into another socket and and see if you get the same thing and that tells you its the cord.

If the display is good when not connected to your pc, then use a process of elimination to figure out if its the monitor cords connector that is broken or frayed or if its the video card connection that is either loose and needs to be re seated in your case or the connection itself is unsturdy and needs the bolts tightened to give a solid connection.

How do you do that?

Check the pins on the end of the cable that connects the monitor to your pc. Are any broken, missing or bent?. Check the other end that connects to the monitor and verify the same thing.

Then try and jiggle the video card by grabbing the area that you connect the monitor cable to on the back of your pc's case and see if it is loose. If it is, get a screwdriver and tighten the screws until its tight.

Try plugging it in again and see if this solves your problems. If it doesn't then clarify your findings and I will help you solve this issue another way.

Hooking up laptop to tv

Sometimes it can be a little tricky to get it working.

If your using a vga monitor cord then you will need to right click on the desktop and go to properties.

Then go to settings and click on the number 2 display and then go into the properites.

Go to the display tab and turn off the notebook but leave the monitor on and it should show up on your tv.

I hope this helps,

If your not using a vga cord let me know what your using and I can help you a little more.

Feel free to post another comment and I will read it so we can get this figured out.

Connection between computer and monitor!!!

The cable for the monitor has to plug into the desktop. So it's a VGA cord or DV Cord depending on the type of video card you have on your desktop. Some have a built in VGA port. Make sure you connect this to your desktop.

Speaker trouble

There has to be separate cord for the speakers. Look for an Audio port on the back of the monitor. It looks like a small hole and should be marked "Audio". Connect this to the Audio out on the PC using a cable with two Audio jacks at both ends.

About a router I just bought

That "large phone chord" is actually an ethernet cable or RJ-45. Its very similar to the RJ-11 telephone cable but they cannot be interchanged. One is strictly for networking computers the other one is only for telephone.
