Use an LED monitor as a lamp - faking a VGA signal? Answered
I have an LED monitor with a smashed screen that I'd like to repurpose as a light panel. The backlight still works (driven from the onboard controller) but cuts out after 20 seconds or so.
I assume this is because the board fails to sense a connected source (it has VGA and HDMI inputs) cable and switches to standby. Is there a simple way of "fooling" the monitor that there's a source conencetd so that it remains lit?
