Make Lcd Computer Monitor Into A Tv Screen


I am wondering how i can make my lcd computer monitor into a t. V. Screen? I am looking at a few monitors. One has hdmi and one just has dvi and vga. I have a dishnetwork box without hdmi so i am using component. I was wondering if all i would need to do is get a hdmi to component cord and plug it in? Or do i have to mess with the setting or other things? Also i heard you can get hd channels over the air with a hd antenna. Is that true? And how would it look on my monitor if it can support 1080p?

24 Inch Glossy (not Matte) Lcd Screen Monitor

I don't like matte monitors, and light/reflections not an issue for me. I can not find any samsung or lg glossy screen type 24" monitors. I did however find a glossy screen acer 24" . I can't post links because im a new user but its the acer p243waid and you can get it on newegg for 330$. But im willing to pay extra for quality of a bigger name brand. Any help plz? It kind of surprises me samsung wouldn't make a 24" monitor with glossy screen?

Dell Lcd Monitor With Black Screen Problem

19" dell lcd monitor with black screen - what is the electronic cause of this monitor problem?

Answer:- usually, it's the backlight, which can be confirmed by shining a torchlight into the darkened dell monitor screen. You might see a dim silhouette of the desktop area if the computer has booted up. Replacing the backlight should solve the problem. The other reason (electronics) could be dry joints on the monitor's inverter board. This can be the case if your dell monitor has a bright & blank screen. Dry joints cause voltage drops, which can result in a black screen.

Asus Lcd Monitor Displaying Grey Screen

Last night my little sister had her friend over, and while i was asleep apparently her friend was using my computer. All i know is she had a webcam hooked up to it. But today when i go to use it, the monitor was displaying a grey screen, and it was totally unresponsive. I couldn't even hard reset. To turn it off i had to flip the switch on my psu. When i rebooted it still showed the gray screen but after a while, like 10 times longer than normal, it finally loaded and displayed properly. I couldn't figure it out, so for the time being, i left it alone. I went back to look at it a few minutes ago. It had been maybe 4 hours. And it responded this time when i moved the mouse, but the screen was grey again. I rebooted (button finally worked again) and still grey screen.

Using Different Lcd Screen For Laptop

Will a laptop not work if its connected to a different lcd? This is pure curiosity. I know that the lcd might not fit, but could you theoretically change the lcd screens of two laptops or do they have different little connectors. Or even if they fit, would they not work? I've always wondered this since i've changed my laptop's screen.

Repairing Laptop Lcd Screen

Have a friend who just purchased an hp pavilion ze5000 laptop but the screen has a "white" screen, the laptop shows fine when connected to any other monitors. I am thinking that this might be a great opportunity for me to get a multimeter and learn how to use it and gain some experience/knowledge in repair but i don't wish to mess up anything in trying or misdiagnose something and have my friend purchase the wrong parts. I already have some great documentation for this but don't wish to have only that documentation to work from so i was wondering if there is anyone here experienced in laptop lcd screen repair who can guide me through the process please or if i can ask specific questions concerning the repair attempt to get some help?

Screen Dimensions Of Lcd Monitors

I am looking into getting a few lcd monitors, 3 to be specific, for my computer at home. I'm sure a lot of you are wondering why in the world i would need three monitors. I currently have 2 at work at quite often wish i had three. I also want to get a large wide screen for viewing movies as my main monitor and 2 smaller on each side for support. Here's where i'm having some trouble. I'm deciding between either a 20. 1 widescreen or 22 widescreen (the 22 just came out for not much more money, but i wanna wait on some reviews before deciding). For my additional two monitors, they will be mounted by arms to each side of this widescreen monitor, but i want the height of the screens to match up. I can't seem to find many sites that show the height and width of the actual screen to compare. I'm hoping some people out there can post of some dimensions (height and width) along with the designated screen size (diagonal), also if it's widescreen. Or if someone knows a site out there with a chart of these dimensions. Hmm, maybe i should just visits fry's electronics with a tape measure. P. S. If you have a crt, please don't post, i know they lose about an inch from the screen, which will totally mess up my numbers.

Usefulness Of Logitech G19 Lcd Screen

I have 4 gaming keyboards i like and i am trying to make a final decision. I am wondering about the actual real life usefulness of the logitech g19 keyboard. Does it really help in games?

Do you have to update the keyboard software to include future games as they are released or does it just figure something out automatically?

Does it have a usefulness outside of gaming?

For all you g19 owners, how often does this improve productivity?

Does it have a usefulness in other applications such as photo and/or video editing?

I've read and watched reviews and they don't go much into the lcd screen. Maybe cause there's not much to show, i don't know. Let me know what you all think about the lcd screen. I need to start thinking with higher standards to try and eliminate these keyboards to 1.

Fix Lcd Screen On A Digital Camera

How do you fix lcd screen on a digital camera? Answer:- replacing a cameras lcd is very easy to do. You can usually buy the lcd cheap on auction sites. It might be better to purchase a broken camera with an intact screen. Make sure you get the same model. Take apart the camera and simply pull the connectors out from the end that is attached to the camera and push the connectors back in (might take some force) with the new screen. Although i have had no experience in this exact area, i would hazard a guess that the expense of replacing the lcd panel would outweigh the cost of a new camera of equivalent capability. Nonetheless, the camera, if it has an optical viewfinder is still capable of providing great pictures. You do not need an lcd viewfinder. If you doubt the picture came out, then snap another. The world didn't have lcd panels before and they certainly don't need them now. See the related link below for examples on how to replace a digital camera's lcd screen.

Small, Portable, Battery Powered Lcd Screen

I'm building a halloween costume that i want to have a small lcd screen be a part of it. Here's what i need:

- A small screen, maybe 4x6in or so?

- No thicker than 3 inches deep. - It will display a picture that i will design and upload to it. - Needs to run on battery power. Disposable batteries would be best since i could replace on the fly as needed. Need it to be on for about about 5-6 hours. -Nothing too heavy

Any ideas? I've been eying digital photo frames but i cant really find any battery powered ones that'll last longer than a few minutes and require a wall recharge to keep going.

Remove Dry Water Mark From Lcd Screen

How do i remove a dry water mark from an lcd screen? I was using a 'screen target' and it's left what looks like a dried up water mark on my screen - any idea how to remove it? My monitor is a 26" samsung t260, and it's a matte finish, not glossy. I've tried wiping it with a cloth but that hasn't worked. If i go out and get some screen wipes, will they help? Or do i just need to leave it to dry out?

Lcd Monitor Or Tv

Which one would provide a higher quality picture and overall performance, a lets say 24" wide screen lcd monitor with a tv tuner, or the same size lcd tv, high def most likely, and no tv tuner. The monitors tend to be more expensive, is that because they provide over all better resolution, if not, then which is better? This is because i was looking on either buying a tv tuner and nice monitor or a tv and hooking up my pc to it and want to know which one would be better.

Cleaning Lcd Monitor

I was just wondering what the best solution (liquid cleaner) would be best for cleaning an lcd such as an lcd monitor or laptop. I have some expo white board cleaner, but it doesnt really say whats in it, and i know lcd's dont like ammonia, so i wont use standard glass (windex) cleaner. Its hard to find a solution thats specific for lcd's and the only one ive seen so far is in a pack of like 3 microfiber cloths (which i have been one using to wipe it off) but their some stuff on it that a cloth wipe just wont get off.

Lcd Hdtv Used As Monitor

I am considering buying a lcd hdtv to use as both a tv and a monitor. Recently bussincess depot had an acer 32" tv/monitor for can$1, 300, but they have discontinued it. So i have gone to other stores and were introduced with a variety of lcd hdtvs which the salesman said can also be used as monitors. I wanted to ask your opinions on whether there is any disadvantages on using a lcd tv as a monitor and switching back and forth between tv and monitor. Also do these high definition tvs (hdtvs) have a sharper image quality?

Lcd Monitor Flashing

I got this 24" lcd monitor here and have a problem with it. When i got it, i hooked it up and i would get no input on the screen from any source (vga/dvi/component). The "no cable source" thing would come up with a weird flashing behind it (like the backlight flashing). Anyway, i (stupidly) got someone to open the screen up and saw the inverter had two blown caps, so replaced them. Now when they opened the screen up, they forgot to undo a connection and it totally ripped off (see images). As you can see, there are some pins broken completely. I managed to connect it back together, ignoring the four or five snapped pins. So put the screen back together, not expecting much. Plugged it in and guess what, i get a picture! (Probably corrected from fixing the inverter). So i can see and run windows fine from this screen. Yet i still get the constant flashing and there are blotches around the screen with different coloured pixels. I am thinking the blotches are appearing because of the dead pins. Now what gets me is the flashing. Is that a dead backlight or something?

To describe it in more depth: it flashes a few times a second, so its really quick. Its like a halogen dying. When it flashes, it doesnt flash off, but flashes to a low brightness. When i turned the brightness from 100 down to 0, the flashing almost completely stopped (flashed once every minute or so). So what i want to know:

1. Whats causing the flashing?
2. Would the funny blotches on the screen be from the pins?
3. What board is that that has been snapped (highlighted in red). What is it called? How hard are they to find?

I mean the pins dont bother me, as if worst comes to worst i can simply remove the pins completely and solder the wires straight onto the board. Its just, i dont want to do that if the flashing will still be there.

Is 3d Possible At 30 Hz ? On A 60hz Lcd Monitor ?

I've seen a number of articles popping up regarding the use of 3d in various games, but they all state that it requires a 120hz monitor for it to work (the newer samsung display i believe). Is there any real reason why it can't be done on a normal 60hz lcd monitor? Ie the vid card calculates two perspectives at 30hz each, alternating each perspective each frame?

Yes i know the effective image frame rate would only be 30fps maximum, but you're still seeing 60hz refresh from the monitor. How can this be any worse than simply playing a game that sits around 30fps anyway?

Possible problem with potential ghosting? (On lower/older spec lcd's)

Xbox On Lcd Monitor

I'm in the market to get some kind of lcd monitor. The problem is. The ones i've looked at don't have the red, white and yellow inputs that the xbox uses to hook up to tvs. So far, the only options to remedy this, that i know of are. A vga box, which i have absolutely no idea what that means. And a tv tuner box. Now, from what i understand, with the tv tuner, if you get a really crappy, cheap one, the resolution goes to crap and you can only really use a tiny portion of the screen with any amount of clarity. Does this go the same with a vga box? Are there any other option? I'm not really looking to blow alot on this piece.

Connecting Lcd Tv As Monitor

I am seeking help in connecting my lcd tv as my second monitor. Let me explain the scenario and specifications. My specifications

One lcd monitor 17 inch (samsung)

One lcd tv 22in hd ready (samsung)

Inbuilt video adapter with hdmi and vga port (ati radeon)

Nvidia graphics card with vga and dvi port. The scenario:

Right now i connected my 17 inch monitor to my graphics card with vga port since the monitor does not have dvi port. And the display is with resolution of 1440 x 900. Since i am a web designer it is difficult for me to work in a 17inch monitor. What i want :

I am planning to connect my 22 inch lcd tv as second or maybe primary monitor. It has both vga and hdmi port. The tv is just hd ready (720pi). The problem

I wanted to connect my lcd tv with my computer (win 7 x64 ). I already was using it by buying a hdmi to dvi converter and connecting to my graphics card but the resolution was not standard. If i remember it is 1280—720. While my second monitor is 1440 x 900. The possibilities. Since i have on inbuilt graphics adapter as well as my graphics card. Is it possible to connect both in different graphics adapter and use ? For example 17in in graphics card and 21in using hdmi in my inbuilt. What do you guys suggest if you are in my legs. I badly need two monitors and i think its waste to buy a 22 in lcd monitor for this as the tv sits idle in my room without anyone watching it or should i use the both in same graphics adapter with the available resolution.
