Question about StarTech.com (SV231UADVI) 2-port KVM Switch

4 Answers

Cannot connect to the monitor with one computer.

I have a HP WX 8600 that will not connect to a Samsung 305T monitor thru the SV231UADVI KVM switch. It connects directly to the monitor and works fine. My SONY PCV-RZ14G connects to this monitor thru the KVM switch with no problems. I have swapped from one connection to the other, also swapped cables back and forth. no help. All I get when the HP is connected thru the switch is five raster colors.

Dear,
you have to install the monitor to the pc first..
if it is using as default then try to configure your monitor throgh Destop--->right click and then properties--->settings---->advance---->monitor---->properties--->driver---->update driver...
and then let it find the driver and after installations.. check it again by finally reset the monitor or do a restart to the system..

regards,

The compression in the PDF output tab that was causing the issue.

We print on a Durst Lambda RGB imaging device to photographic paper. All color management is done as an early bind (raster files are converted to the printer's color space and vector colors are chosen from a palette database). So basically the files must go through InDesign without any color change in raster or vector information. We have clients that require specific RGB builds for logo colors the are present in both their raster and vector files.
Color Management is set to "North American General Purpose 2" with "RGB: Preserve Embedded Profiles" selected.

1) The file is exported as a PDF 1.4, High Quality, PDF/X_None.
2) The PDF was ripped on a Cheetah RIP (Jaws level 3) with no color management on.
3) Solid raster colors such as 0-255-0 will reproduce as 0-255-1.
4) The color differences between the raster and vector are usually 1-4 points.
5) The vector is consistent as was input in the program—it's only the raster that changes. When you are trying to match raster and vectors logo colors it is a killer.

However, I can go into the InDesign (or Illustrator) color settings and turn color management off (This is our current workflow). In doing this the RGB working space uses the monitor profile and "color management policies" are set to OFF. With these settings the RGB raster and vector match. The problem with this work flow is two fold:

1) We have other devices than our RGB Durst Lambda that can use the InDesign color management—Vutek flat bed 3200 and grand format 3360.

2) We have had many occurrences where the custom "color management off" settings have reverted back to the default "North American General Purpose 2"—without any intervention.

The flickering problem you have is caused by the monitor's t-con board, The Altera chip on the T-con board is having a bad connection because of dead soldering points or cracked soldering joints, the solution for this problem is to have the T-con board Altera chip reballed, its a very advanced repair , only one place will fix it for you and I will add a link for it, you won't easily find a replacement T-con board for this monitor and Samsung is no longer supporting your monitor so that place is your only hope. 7f514c27-5c9c-4e70-b50a-29505054d67b.jpg b5ec5af6-395e-4533-b5ea-9ca10c5ae592.jpg SAMSUNG MONITOR 305T REBALLING REPAIR 728a6cd3-2218-4f75-8f0c-7348e47d15f4.jpg

Elitebook 8470p not displaying to remote monitor with KVM


Is the laptop actually detecting an output when the KVM is plugged in? Try forcing output with Windows + P (Vista/7) or a function key (not sure what it is for the 8470p).

Try disconnecting all the cables and restart the Kvm switch. That fixed it for me.

Having issues with my samsung syncmaster 305t displaying red green blue and white. can you help me with this?


since no one answered this, I had the same issue, It was pretty basic but when nothing is connected to the screen (the DVI cable is not connected to any device) it loops in red green blue and white. So just connect something to it and it should work. This monitor is not the most practical since it has no menu and just 1 port.
