I'm using a Raspberry Pi 4b. I want to use my Acer LCD Monitor Version G206HQL bd, which uses VGA or DVI inputs. I am also using a Micro HDMI to VGA adapter for my RPI to communicate with the monitor, but when the input type to the monitor is switched to VGA and I attempt to begin the boot up process for the Pi (using NOOBS at first but eventually Raspian) the screen on the monitor simply says No Cable Connected. The raspberry illustrations do not come to screen, and the boot is not output to the monitor. If anyone knows how to fix this issue, please respond.
this might help:
hdmi_drive=2 #config_hdmi_boost=4 hdmi_group=2 hdmi_mode=47 hdmi_force_hotplug=1 disable_overscan=0 enable_tvout=0
credit to the poster at: Can a simple cable convert HDMI output to VGA?
The only diff in my case is:
enable_tvout=1 there was still no signal at monitor
And I found
config_hdmi_boost=4 was not needed.
The Adapter I used is not externally powered... I got this from amazon.ca
