Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a 715V LCD monitor, and have had it for three years. It was manufactured in May, 2005. I have never had a problem with it but in the last few days it randomly shuts off in intervals. The screen goes black as if it is sleeping, but VERY dimly I can see the computer page beneath. When I turn it off, and back on it will work for maybe a few hours, but mostly it will shut off again in a few seconds. At first it only did it when the computer had been on a for a few hours, but now it does it on start-up too. Is this a common problem, because I haven't been able to find any record of it? Did something just get knocked loose, or is it diode trouble?

    I tried my computer with a different monitor, and it is working, so I know that it is the monitor that is causing the problem. I also tried a newer video card, but that didn't help.

I think you need to replace the battery on your motherboard.
It's not expensive.

    Okay, if ou have tried another monitor and it works then the problem is your current monitor.

    The thing is ..... 3yrs isn't a long time for monitors to suddenly stop functioning. But like everything in life there is no guarantee, so perhaps it might be worth your while to purchase a new monitor or for a $100 get your current one fixed. You have to also weigh the cost difference between repairing or buying a new one. If it's a matter of $100 difference for a new one then I would suggest buying a new one.

When powering up the monitor comes on,then flickers a little,then display goes black.can the e233h monitor be reset?

Probably not. This is most likely either a backlight going out, or an inverter board going bad, or other internal component (costs $100+ to replace by a professional). Not worth it to fix in most cases, unless you have an extended warranty, or a local repair shop with really good rates.

However, you can try another monitor cord (between monitor and computer; not likely to be the problem, but rarely can help). Flat screen (monitors/TVs/laptops) generally last 5+ years with average use, but I've seen them fail within 2 years (especially on laptop computers). In general, if you got 3 to 5 years out of a monitor, you did ok.

PS: If buying a new LCD monitor or TV, look for one that says "LED" on the box. (LCD monitors traditionally had a few fluorescent bulbs inside as "backlights", but newer LCD monitors/TVs have hundreds of tiny LED lights inside, which last longer, use slightly less electricity, and give more even lighting on the screen edges).

Hi I Got a Samsung SyncMaster 920NW the display

If you are saying that it powers off in a few seconds you most probably have a bad (internal) power supply.

How much can u sell it for if it is used in very good condition

As your Samsung SyncMaster 910MP 19" LCD monitor was probably manufactured around 2005, has the old 4:3 aspect ration, is a TV without a digital tuner, and is lastly a "touch screen" which has very limited applications usually targeted to special needs (i.e., digital kiosks, point of sale, or other specialized applications.) These displays aren’t meant for standard desktop computing environments.
I have found brand new touch screens for as little as $95 to over $500. My recommendation would be to target a mid-range price that you feel comfortable with but understand that savvy shoppers will most likely not purchase it when they can have an up-to-date 2010 model with a manufacturers warranty.
The last SyncMaster 910MP sold on eBay on April 22, 2010 for $92.00
Best of Luck!

What is an average life for a Princeton Monitor. My seem to last for a little over two years. This is with daily use for eight to ten hours.

Two years is still new. Your monitor should last several years at least. I say should last, but the manufacturer will give you a 1 year warranty. Basically i year is nothing at all. I've had monitors from a variety of manufacturers and all have lasted at least 5 years and most lasting much longer. The monitors I'm referring to were used in a business and were on a minimum of 10 hours per day. I had some Princeton monitors that lasted equally long. You can complain to the manufacturer, but it may not get you any satisfaction.

Faulty monitor after one year

Hi Shirley,

In Singapore, Acer monitor is 3 years warranty.

If the your monitor is out-of-warranty, please consider replacing. It is cheaper than repair.

Performance life is normally around 2.5 yrs ++. Normal faults is due to manufacturing defects.
