You answered one of my old questions on the same monitor, you were saying something on the monitor cables might not be connected to the cpu right. i don't know what you meen by that. see all i got is the cable that runs to the monitor to the back of the video card. and the video card just hooks into the motherboard, so if you don't mind would you please be more specific on what you meen by the monitor being hooked up to the cpu.thanks a lot man.

Re: l1928nv monitor help
The cable which connects the video card from the monitor in that there may be some problem .... just try replacing that with another one ....
or your video card might not be connected correctly on the AGP or PCI express slot .... just remove the video card and reconnect it again & then have a check it will work if there is no problem in the cable means .....
if you persist the same problem then there may be some problem in the video card port ... just have a check with that when you remove the video card do does it looks if you see any burnt marks on the video card means there may be some problem in the video card or there may be some capacitor gone on the video near the port so it might not be working ...
so just have a check with these correctly .... if all the above are in good condition then .... if you persist the same problem then there is some problem in the monitor .... just check the monitor by putting to another CPU .....

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.
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:
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
You use this cable to connect the laptop to the TV. If you need to buy this from an electronic shop, costs under $10.
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. luciana44
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 email@example.com Bye for now
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 www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm 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.

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
