wireless monitor

Hi all, I'm in for my first topic: i'll get a new pc soon, and I wanted do install a 2nd monitor, not far away from my bed, so it would be easy to watch films. The pc would stand in the same room. Is there an easy way to connect an (old) tv, or a monitor (wireless) to your pc? Thnx Arnout PS, I'm from Belgium, so sorry for my English ;)

Mounting an LCD Monitor

Hello everyone! I am working on project that involves mounting a 19in LCD monitor onto a board. The monitor has 4 threaded holes in the back for mounting onto an arm or wall mount. I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of screws to use or has any advice on properly and securely mounting the monitor. The monitor is a Westinghouse 19" LCD. The whole project is going to be a small entertainment center for my monitor. I am going to attach speakers and accent lighting. I am doing this for a class project and drafting it in Vectorworks. *If anyone is interested in looking at the plans I will send them to you; however please don't redistribute them. They will be in DWG format. GC

LCD Monitor Repair

Congrats! Instead of throwing away your broken LCD monitor, you've decided to fix it. What do you have too loose by attempting the repair yourself? It's already heading for the trash can or the e-waste center. By repairing it you will probably save from $100 to $200 or more! If you have done any reading at all on the web, you have already discovered that bad capacitors account for a large percentage of all LCD monitor failures. If your monitor flickers when you start it up, the screen is dim, has strange lines on it, clicks, etc., then this information is just for you! The repair does not require any special knowledge or skill. About the only tools you will need are a putty knife, a screwdriver, a pair of pliers and a Radio Shack soldering iron. Without getting into too much technical jargon, there are two main components inside your monitor, the power board which powers the inverter (lights) and video, and the video board. The power supply circuit board must be removed before you can replace the capacitors. You must open your monitor and examine the capacitors on the power supply board. Each monitor will have a power supply circuit board. Each monitor model will have a slightly different board. They all look about the same. Some have more capacitors, some have less. Most all LCD monitors have a large 400v capacitor. These rarely go bad. There's a video at www.youtube.com/watch that shows you how to disassemble a Viewsonic monitor, and install new capacitors. This is a great video! There's also a good tutorial that shows how to completely disassemble a Samsung 204T LCD Monitor. It's a step by step guide, which also includes a "how to solder" video. Although this tutorial is for a Samsung 204T LCD monitor, the information found here can be applied to almost any monitor. Between the YouTube video on the Viewsonic monitor and the tutorial you should have no problem installing new capacitors in your LCD monitor. Good Luck!

Computer monitor help!

The story is my 6 month old computer monitor is playing up and I need advice on what to do. The ploblem arised about a week ago and has persisted til today.  When I turn the computer monitor on, instead of the usual flash of the Acer logo it repeats 18 times!  This number remains constant and is bloody irritating.  Also when the computer is on it periodically flashes no signal (when there clearly is a signal) for about a minute and then refreshes the monitor and repeats.  Even whilst I am writing this it is there. What should I do? replace the screen or something else? HELP!?

broken monitor help?

I've had this monitor for years and now when i pug it into any computer it is black. i know it is getting something to the monitor because when i plug it into a com. it turns a different shade of black. Plus when i turn the monitor off then back on it show me a quick glimpse of what the screeen should look like if it worked. i presume there is a short in the monitor. i believe it is a cft monitor. b4 i open it up i want to know if there is a simple diagnoses. oh and i did try messing with the brightness and contrast. i wouldn't be suprised if i had to open the monitor. i le it sit for a few days to allow the capacitors to discharge. i am really good with a soldering iron so if i have to replace a resitor or capacitor it'll be fine. and p.s. is there a way make a tesla coil out of simple parts like a day creation? and to all those who have jailbroken ipods and iphones with installer is anyone els experiancing problems downloading Cracked apps? thanks -miiwii3 some one help

My monitor screwed?

I've got a 19 inch flat screen crt monitor hooked up to my mac. And when I play my music really loud, the image almost shakes like it would if I had the stereo hooked up to the power bar with it like it used to be. The stereo is on it's own breaker right now, but is it doing that from the actual vibration of the picture tube or is it dieing on me?

Half broken monitor

I recently bought a 19 inch LCD monitor for 40 bucks (used). It works perfectly for about half an hour (i havn't timed it) and then the screen just goes blank. If i turn it off and then back on it works for a couple of seconds then it turns back off. If I let it be for a while (like an hour or just when I'm not using my computer) it works fine for another half hour. Is this an overheating problem or what is going on?

Situation: A laptop, fully working, a desktop monitor, fully working also Want: A wireless VGA between the laptop and the monitor, so I can use my laptop in one side of my room, while having the monitor sits in other corner, within 5 meter Proposed solution: A wireless kit [url]http://focus.ti.com/docs/toolsw/folders/print/ez430-rf2500.html[/url], so one end attaches to the VGA port of the laptop, of course a a simple will be needed to input the VGA signal into the microcontroller.

Monitor powered by ATX

I searched for hours with varying keywords and can't find too much information...  12v to pin 1 and GND to pin 2 but what do I do about the neutral? I read a xbox 360 laptop mod but it involves the 5v too, and connects it to the power brick. I'm trying to do something different. Trying to make a lunchbox out of a macpro 1.1 case. 1 wire to plug into an outlet is better than needing two. Before I get into this project im trying to understand what I need to buy and feel kinda silly asking such a question which should be extremely simple but I want to be safe and dont want to fry anything. For those that are actually interested in what I'm doing, I kept staring at the case thinking "what can I make with this, and the items I have laying around?" I thought I'd 1-up the basic hackintosh build and go against the grain of using the case how it's intended. I flipped it so the side with the I/O ports were sitting flat, measured the inside which gave me 7" of workable space with 0.4" wiggle room which made perfect for an mini ITX to be laying flat down instead of against the wall. I thought I could take my dremel and cut out an area for a LCD monitor. I have enough DVD drives laying around as well that I could make a "push tray to eject keyboard" sort of slide out keyboard upgrading the rails, using an ultra thin keyboard with a track pad and top it off with sound activated lights and my 1.5 TB HD that's almost full of music. I realize I can do this with a laptop and pocket usb speaker/light effects, but it wouldn't be as cool and I wouldn't get to reuse these items I have sitting around.

Controlling HDMI or vga monitor

I'm working on a project that I need a monitor to display information for a predetermined amount of time then turn off (Im will not be using the Raspberry Pi for this). In a days time I may want the monitor ON/OFF twice or several times. I've got experience with using relays, and was thinking of breaking the 110v to achieve it, however not sure if I would be shorting the life of the monitor by doing this. Would it be more practical to break the incoming HDMI cable with some particular pinouts( like the video or signal or 5v? with a relay or two) and keep the monitor turned on 24/7? Thanks! FYI. This monitor will NOT be connected to a PC, it will only be displaying my outside cameras when activated.
