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.

How do I fix the color?

No! the problem is in the LCD panel display, behind the LCD is a large circuit board that process video, colour, brightness, and balance, if that goes wrong it throws the colour content off, replacing monitor best option. But first it would be a good idea to sub the video cable from the monitor to the computer to cover everything and hook a spare monitor to the computer to rule out the video graphics card.

My monitor suddenly went black when I awoke it from standby and it only states "video input 1 D - SUB NO SIGNAL" each time I turn the moniitor off an on again. I checked all connectivity to the...

My suggestion is going to be if you have another computer that you can hook up to the monitor and see if it works for it then the problem would be not the monitor but your computer. As it is telling you that it is not recieving a signal. If it still doesn't work then it will be something wrong with the monitor or the cable connecting it.

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.

I think I have connected the wrong plugs into my monitor, cpu and printer. What power cord does the monitor use ?

most monitors use the standard 3 pin connector just like desktop computers.

If it uses something different it will most likely be a 2 pin figure 8 shaped style or a single male connector that comes from a brick.

I hooked up a vx2433wm monitor to a dell computer, and I can't get the sound to work. Any thoughts?

this monitor has a separate audio in cable that must be connected on the green audio in socket at the back of your computer to the back of your monitor. this is usually a thinner cable as compared the the thick cable which goes to the video card for video.

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.

Monitor doesn't work

When you got the pc, you should have been given a starter pack with some CD-ROM's in the pack, one of them should be the drives for the monitor, you might need to use anothermonitor to see the instructions, but the basic graphics card should power the monitor enough to set things up, until then you won't be able to adjust the settings.
