Hello helpers from all over the world! I'm into a somewhat infuriating situation.
Around a month ago, I purchased from eBay a V2HD video converter box, so I could hook my Wii to my Samsung SyncMaster 2494 - 1080p monitor, which only has DVI and VGA inputs.
This little box is supposed to convert a composite/component/s-video signal and output it to an HDMI one.
As you can see, the box did not work. It didn't output the video signal. **
I contacted the seller, and troubleshooted doing the basic stuff:
- Checking the cables.
- Seeing that everything was connected properly
- Trying the converter on other devices.
The seller send me a new device, which I received today.
I'm about to hook it up and....! Ta da! Nothing again! I sent a new message to the seller, and I've yet to receive a reply. Henceforth, I would love to see if someone can give me some tips on how to fix this.
Here is how I'm setting up everything:
I have an HDMI-DVI cable which I have used to hook up from Blu-Ray players to Xbox 360s. Every HDMI capable device, has been successfully connected. So the cable is not the problem.
I hook up the video (Yellow cable) to the V2HD's input, and connect the HDMI end to the output. the audio cables are connected to my Logitech speakers.
Symptoms: No image is displayed. Audio is going normally through the speakers. The Monitor's screen is pitch black, but it stays as it it detects some kind of input.
I've left the device turned on, ever since, and I can see from time to time, some distorted stripes popping on the screen and vanishing in an instant.
Any ideas? Thanks a lot
Note*: The instruction manual doesn't come with a troubleshoot section. In fact, it's just a quick start-up guide, which doesn't seem to hint at my problem.
** I lent the device to my friend, since in my home there are no HDMI capable televisions, to test it out on another device. For our surprise the Audio did went through, but the video didn't.
