My computer monitor shows a message "out of range". I can't get rid of the message or show anything from my computer.

The resolution your computer is sending is greater than the maximum support resolution of your monitor that isn't working or is a resolution not supported. Connect one of the monitors that works and turn down the resolution to something small (800x600 or 1024,768) and then switch to the original monitor back, you should see a picture and can adjust the resolution to something larger that the monitor supports.

Connect hdtv to laptop wirelessly

Hi cjb63hc
Your first question is how to use the TV as your computer display. No matter which brand of LCD TV you buy, they all will have a connection port for a PC or laptop. TV's and laptops do not supply the cables.
What you need are these:
  1. VGA cable - You already have this, if you have a desktop computer. It is the cable which connects the PC to the monitor. Both ends look the same with 15 pins. OR you can buy another cable called HDMI cable the cost of which is $30 to $40
  2. You use this cable to connect the laptop to the TV. If you need to buy this from an electronic shop, costs under $10.
  3. You alsoo need a cable for the sound. This cable is called 3.5 mm stereo mini jack cable also called Audeo Cable. Make sure the size is correct. This will be connected from PC or laptop to the TV. The price is around $5.
You have seen people connecting the laptop to an external monitor. Here the external monitor is the TV.

The second questio- CD/DVD player. Usually they come with the necessary RGB cables. I don't think that would a big problem to figure out.

Hope this will help you. If you find this answer helpful, why don' tyou give a rating?
Have a very good day.

I have a Westinghouse L1928NV computer monitor that appears to be no longer working. It was fine yesterday but last night the power went out and now it is completely unresponsive. Suggestions? Thanks

charla186, I think that you will need to have it evaluated by a TECH type of person. If unit will not turn on it could have a 'switch-mode-power-supply" failure and / or "backlight" inverter supply failure. You didn't state the AGE and or approximate "ON" hours this unit has. I don't quite know what you mean with "the power went out"?? Power to the whole house or office? or did you mean just the LCD monitor? Here are some options you might try. Warranty??? or Check with Westinghouse about a CASH + old monitor swapout for a fully refurbished same model. Have a local TECH at a TV/ monitor repair shop evaluate it's condition. I will also suggest you visit YOUTUBE and view some short video clips of LCD monitor disassembly just so you know what is inside a typical LCD and then know what the top 2 causes of monitor failure are. In any case get back to me and let me know what you think you will be your plan of action. I'm louie12fix on fixya or Bye for now

Westinghouse L1928NV Monitor won't turn on


You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. You may also have to replace 2 transisters and a fuse, if they were damaged by the blown capacitors. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $45 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

We sell a kit with the capacitors, transistors and fuse for $10.00 plus shipping.

No sound from my viewsonic desktop monitor

Is your monitor actually connected to the audio jack on the back of the PC? The sound is connected separate from the video.

L1928nv monitor no signal or options


This is always the hard part for we Experts here at FixYa. As you may have read in the Terms of Service you agreed to 'not everything can be fixed with consultations'.

When you press the menu for the OSD, and you don't receive it your monitor is just about terminal. The only resort you have is to return this for service if you are still under warranty. There is a small circuit board that, in the absence of a fuse, will sacrifice itself to protect the rest of the components. This can only be serviced at a authorized service center.

Westinghouse only has a one year warranty, if you qualify they want you to bring it to a service center.

So if you are or aren't in warranty you want to call this number to find a service center near you.
Westinghouse Digital Electronics at (866) 287-5555

Sorry I can't give you better news than this. And just for the record we don't like trying to help, we are here to help and fix your problems. Perhaps in the future we can actually fix a problem for you.

If you find this information helpful please rate it so. Thanks.
