hay guys,

so i have plans to turn an old CRT computer monitor into an oscilloscope, but the monitor goes on standby when ever it doesn't receive a signal through its VGA port. does any one know if theirs a way to disable this feature or trick the monitor into thinking its receiving a signal? By the way i need the monitor to stay on and send an electron beam so i can make it sweep and scan.

BRAND:

Envision

MODEL #:

EN-710e

DESCRIPTION:

White case, color monitor, VGA input,

My best guess is that the monitor looks for a return signal on the grounds which is how it determines if it is connected to a device. Unfortunately VGA has 5 grounds (or return signals). http://pinouts.ru/Video/VGA15_pinout.shtml. Try jumping the rounds with it's equivilent signal input and see what happens.
