I have been using an RPI3B+ for around 2 months . I used it remotely most of the time. Recently, when I was trying connect it with a monitor via HDMI to VGA converter , it didn't work at all. I inserted the sd card properly and I could connect remotely as well .I've tried with different monitors , different converter .
I followed This Tutorial to fix the issue .But no luck. I've even tried with reinstalling the raspbian . I am using raspbian desktop version for os , a 2.4 amp power supply ,ADATA 64 GB sd card ,HDT11 sensor .
My question is ,
Is this a hardware problem ? Is there any solution?
what could be the reason behind this ?
my config.txt

 # For more options and information see
 # http://rpf.io/configtxt
 # Some settings may impact device functionality. See link above for 

# uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default "safe" mode

# uncomment this if your display has a black border of unused pixels 
# and your display can output without overscan

# uncomment the following to adjust overscan. Use positive numbers if 
# goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border

# uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display's 
size minus
# overscan.

# uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being 

# uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)

# uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio 
work in
# DMT (computer monitor) modes

 # uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, 
 blanking, or
 # no display

 # uncomment for composite PAL

 #uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.

 # Uncomment some or all of these to enable the optional hardware 

 # Uncomment this to enable the lirc-rpi module

  # Additional overlays and parameters are documented 

  # Enable audio (loads snd_bcm2835)

I followed the linked tutorial .but it didn't fix the issue. so I reversed back to the original config .This is my current config.txt

  • have you tried a monitor with HDMI? – Jaromanda X Apr 13 at 4:07

  • can you post your config.txt in the question – Jaromanda X Apr 13 at 4:25

  • so, you didn't try anything in that tutorial ... since all your hdmi_force_hotplug etc are still commented ... i.e. they start with # ... o solve the problem you just have to uncomment (ie remove the sign # at the beginning) these lines and save the file – Jaromanda X Apr 13 at 4:53
