Question about Acer Computers & Internet
When I hook them all up the TV recognizes a "new component input" and asks if I want to use it. Heck yes that's why I plugged it in haha. I hit the enter key to opt in. The Acer screen is now black as though it were turned off. And even if I hold the Fn key down and press F5 it just brings up a different or odd laptop screen with thick wide black borders left and right. There is nothing on the LG TV's screen except a LG screen saver scrolling after a couple of minutes. Please help me. I'm dying to watch the last 6 rounds of the MotoGP World Motorcycle Championship's races on my TV screen rather than my puny laptop's screen haha. Actually it won't kill me if I can't since I've watched the first 12 races via laptop. But you sure would be my hero if you could resolve my issue. Thank you.
Look for a Function Key (fn) on your laptop for activating the VGA external monitor.
If your fn button is blue (for example) all of the keys on your laptop that are activated when you hold down the fn button will have an option in blue. Look for a blue icon on a key that roughly looks like a monitor or two monitors.
With everything hooked up, press and hold the fn key, then tap the corresponding key to turn on the external monitor.
Having said that... the cable you are describing has a VGA (blue 15 pin connector) that plugs onto the VGA jack of your laptop and splits that signal into a set of component RCA plugs. Its critical how you plug these into the correct place on your LG TV component connections. I know such adapter cables exist but I've never seen one work.

SOURCE: Convergence Problem?
The convergence IC most likly shorted, and burnt out the b+ feed resistor. There are two IC's inside this set to control the green red and blue convergence. They are most likly STK 392-###. The ### is another set of numbers that change depending on the model of the set. They each have three amps inside each one. You really should have both of the IC's replace with only original parts, as sub parts do not hold up and will not last as long as they should. Both IC's are soldered into place and if you decide to do this yourself, please be aware of the extemly high voltage inside of these puppys. there really are no user replaceable parts inside these sets unless you have solid state repair experience. Not only will yopu need the proper IC's, but you will have to find out what was burning. my best advice, Play it safe and call in a trained tech to assist you with this repair. The price should run someware between 300 to 450.00 to repair. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.
