Repair wire from signal cable is disconnected or broken (15 Pin D shape Connector)

Soldering usually. Some connnectors were prefabricated with rubber being injection moulded. Your best bet is to purchase a 15 pin D connector and change the old one by soldering.

My screen is black nothing shows up 3 months old

-check the cables on the monitor and disconnect and reconnect it
-if issue still persist you can check the cable of the monitor for broken pins (vga cable the one with blue connector)
-if there are broken pins then the cable could be the problem
-if not you can try to connect the monitor to another computer or connect the computer to another monitor
-if you connect another monitor to the computer and it works fine then the first monitor you have is broken
-but if you connected the monitor to another computer and it works then it could be the video card of the computer.

I have a MAG lcd monitor and it has a green tint,what could be the problem?

It might be that the monitor cable going to the graphics card is either broken or not in properly. Take it out on both ends and make sure that the pins inside are not bent. If they are, try to straighten them VERY CAREFULLY so they don't break. If they break just buy another cable. You have to rey and straighten them if they are bent. There's no way around it.

If they are straight and you screwed them in properly, it could be that the cable itself is damaged.

Imy 15-pin vga port connecting to the monitor has 3

I am sorry but there is no way to replace just the three broken pins. You can replace the entire vga plug but it requires stripping down each individual wire and soildering a new one on. You can pick up a 15 inche monitor for next to nothing. Try you can get a nice flatscreen for a good price. I am sorry.I wish you all the luck in the world.

Monitor will not come on


Most of the tiime if the monitor has a blinking green or amber light there is a problem with the signal going out to the computer. there are 2 ways how we can determine if the it is an issue with the monitor or the video card of the computer.

Since, we have a new monitor cord that could eliminate the possibility that your monitor cord causes the problem.

1. Try disconnecting your monitor from the computer and check for the green blinking light

2. Try connecting a different monitor to determine the issue.

Keep me posted.

Monitor connector bent pin

It is quite easy to straighten these pins, however the pins are quite brittle, and do not suffer bending too many times (they just snap) Does this cable unscrew at the monitor end? if you have straightened the pin on the cable but are worried that it may be a little weak on that end, swap the ends of the cable round and use the other end to plug into your computer (as it will be stronger) Also if the cable unplugs at the monitor end it can be replaced with a cable of the same type, available from most computer stockists, just take the broken cable with you for comparison Gareth

No Signal Detected

Is this on a notebook or on your regular PC?The answer will determine what the solution is. You can first check to see if the little pins on the plug are all straight and none are bent or broken. If one of he pins is bent then you can try gently straighten it (unplug the monitor from the wall first) If any of the pins are broken then either the cable needs to be replaced or the monior has to be replaced.
