Hello! This is my very first post on this site. I was looking for a good place for tech support and this was recommend, so now I'm here! Alright - here's the story. A few months ago, my neighbor moved. They gave away some of their stuff, one of which is a ViewSonic VG2427wm monitor, which was given to me. At first glance, it didn't look like much. Then I decided to some research on it, and it turns out that it's actually an HD monitor back from 2009. It even displays in full 1080p! After I found that out, I wanted to try out my Wii U with it . . . That's when I ran into a pretty big roadblock. Turns out that even though it can do HD, the oh so sensible people at ViewSonic decided to NOT incorporate an HDMI port! (Weird, right?) Anyway; it has two input ports - a DVI-D port and a VGA port. I've been using my laptop with the monitor through the VGA port, and it displays at 1920x1080. Little did I know that VGA is quite archaic when compared to DVI and HDMI. I just went on vacation to the States (I live in the Bahamas) - and I was able to pick up a really affordable (yet well-reviewed) DVI-HDMI (male-to-male) adapter cable, made by ULTRA. Since I couldn't bring my monitor with me, I had to wait to get all the way back home here in the Bahamas. Why, oh why? As soon as I got home, I plugged in the cable to the back of the monitor (the DVI end) and into my Wii U (the HDMI end). I powered on the monitor, and WALLA ----- oh wait. "No Signal". I've been trying for about 3-4 hours now, and that's all I can get from it. I've tried all I can. I even plugged the HDMI end into my set-top box, and believe it or not, IT WORKED! I took it out and tried it again, but once again "No Signal". That's the only time it's worked. I'm not sure what the case is. I've done all I can...I tried it on my laptop (it's the only one in the house with an HDMI port, and this monitor is the only one in the house with a DVI port). The monitor has age on it...I can't access the OSD and there are a few bright spots; but it still looks and works good. I just really wanted to try DVI since it's apparently in the same ballpark as HDMI when it comes down to display quality. So, does anyone have any ideas? I can't return the cable to try for a different one (just in case IT'S the problem) - and to buy one here in my country is a little more expensive. TL;DR - Monitor won't accept DVI signal from HDMI to DVI adapter cable, but accepts VGA just fine. Any tips to attempt a fix?
