View Full Version : [ubuntu] Testing second hand monitor - NEC 1810 Multisync LCD

November 19th, 2008, 01:27 AM
I have just got hold of one of these old LCDs for free and as it's bigger than my current monitor, I'd quite like to get it working. I have been assured that it 'works' but I cannot manage to get a picture out of it. One possible issue is that I am connecting it to my computer using a very cheap old KVM lead, and I'm not sure how good it is. When I attach it and power up, the monitor LED goes green but I get no picture. If I detach it then attach my regular monitor (probably not a good idea when the computer is on), I am told that the resolution is 'out of range'. My regular monitor has a max resolution of 1024x768, in case that helps.

Here is a link to the manual (in html format):

Any ideas? My regular monitor has a 'built in' lead to connect to the computer so I can't try another lead without buying one, which I don't want to do unless I know it will work.

The monitor also has other connectors I've not seen before - I'm pretty sure that this is the type:


Thanks for your time. :)

I was wondering whether you still have your old NEC monitor & if so whether you may be prepared to sell it?
