Hi all, This question probably sounds like a noob question but I have done everything I can think of to get it to work but can't. The trouble is with a Phillips 150MT LCD monitor/TV. The remote control is dead and by the look of it it doesnt turn on without a remote (very stupid idea). Im hoping someone has this actual monitor and can help me. I turn on power button on the monitor it lights up the screen stays completely black, i press every button channel up/down, volume up/down PC/TV select button everything you can think of. I then connected the xbox to the AV connection thinking maybe it needs a signal to turn the monitor on - No, nothing exactly the same as above, I connect an aerial connection for tv (nothing again). I can't change the setting off PC to TV or video. Only thing I havn't tried is connection a PC via VGA to it and seeing if it flicks the screen on by having an input signal (i will try that in the next few days - I have a mac laptop so no VGA out, need a converter for the mini DVI connection plus VGA lead). Has anyone got this monitor and can turn it on without the remote control? p.s. I have also tried programming my universal remote into it and I cant, no idea why just doesnt hit that frequency I guess, or maybe the IR receiver on the monitor is dead ? You're my hero if you can figure this out. i am going to build a pc soon and thought I could use this little monitor to get me going until I buy a bigger one.
