I doubt that you have a DC in that is in the shape of a rca connector. go to the web site that represents that proview device and try to get the manaul. don't plug any power into that jack until you are sure, and why would you want to run it on battery anyway.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

your power supply may be going bad have it tested for defects.

It says no signal can be that the video card is not putting out video signal to the monitor, you need another monitor to verify that or you can try reseating the video card if it is not the integrated video card in the mother board. It can be the VGA cable itself. Try thsi monitor with other PC to make sure it is not the monitor problem.

In my experience this is usually a fault in the video cable (either the cable itself or a bent pin). I would say unplug the cable from both the PC and the Monitor and plug it back in, taking care to be sure it is connected securely on both sides. If you have a spare video cable (or borrow one) I would try connecting that as well.

Take a flash light point it at the screen and see if you see and image if you do then you got a bad back light and that will need to be replaced, now if you do not see a image then you got a power supply problem that needs to be looked at.

You may also want to check you signal cable to see if there are any bent pins if there are you need to straigten them out.

Thanks hope that does help please do leave a postive feedback and ratings.

Please try this monitor with other PC first, if it still does not work then please read below.
LCD monitors usually fail after a couple years due to poor quality caps being used in the power supplies.

That sounds like either bad VGA cable or cable is not seated properly into the monitor or the PC. Try that first. Try it on another PC also. Just need to narrow down the problem. Please post back.

Hi!

Here's what you need to do. Connect the computer to another monitor and adjust the resolution. It could be that the current resolution of your PC is not supported by the monitor. Try adjusting it first and then test again.

the inverter is going out-it controlls the bulbs in the monitor.may find one on ebay

bzinbby1, Hi, I think I know what's wrong. In fact I already know what's wrong! But I want you to do one test to let me know how bad it really is! Here is the test. I want you to reconnect your Proview to an already fully booted "KNOWN GOOD" pc with WIN DESKTOP showing. Then and only then power up the Proview and hold a good, bright flashlight 2 inches from the lcd screen after the screen goes to BLACK! Even though the screen appears BLACK, can you still see the WIN Desktop if you hold the flashlight at different angles???? Get back to me with results of test. I will then tell you what options are open to you as a consumer whose screen is now dark and lifeless. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com

hey guys i have the 2second problem aswell but!, i was just about to throw mines away when i can stumbled across away how to get it working proper again and again and again!. ive seen lots of help pages like this where everyone is talkin about replacing parts, but if u screen flicks on and then off it should work with my quick fix. heres how and i hope it works for you.

Boot up ur pc as u would usually and wait awhile untill you think everything has loaded up or has reached the logon stage.

Then if you look carefully at ur screen and press the menu button you should be able to see it thery faintly (i shine a lamp at it to see better).

Then i cycle through OSD (on screen disply) menu using the up or down buttons on my monitor untill i see the "AUTO" option. at this stage i press MENU button "2 times"

Then i cycle through the OSD untill i see the "RESET" option and again i press the MENU button to confirm the reset.

Then simply press the power button to switch it off and then back on....HEY PRESTO! it working again.

I have told 11 people this fix and they all reported back that it works for them 2. this method should work every time aslong as you stiil can see the green LED on ur monitor.
