Question about CTX S762A 17" LCD Monitor

42 Answers

The monitor turns off and on repeatedly.

It comes on and shows the picture but then turns off and comes back on and shows the picture and turns off again repeatedly. It seems to keep doing this forever. It is getting power and is connected to the computer or it wouldn't show the picture.

    My monitor turns on briefly, I can see the bue screen for a flash of a second and then it goes black. The green power button is lit indicating that it is still powered on. I ahve tried using my monitor on another system and the same problem occurs. My monitor is only three years old. Any suggestions?

    Hi:



    I have an HP-L1906 lcd monitor, the screen went out, but the power light stayed on. When I put it up on the bench to test, it would not turn on at all. I have it all opened up now, and will try to look for shorted transistors, chips and see if I can find something. Any tips on where to start. Thanks,

  • ppritchard Nov 20, 2007

    In the morning, after the pc has hibernated overnight, the startup yields an image on the monitor, then to black. The image pops back on the again to black. Restarting the pc doesn't seem to effect it. But after a while the picture does stay on. Also, when the picture comes and goes it makes a sound almost like a door closing or a pop when the screen goes blank.

    I'm having the same problem, monitor goes black but the green power light stays on, it only stays on for 5-10 seconds before going black again. I'm annoyed because this monitor is only 13 months old. Its not the power supply, because my other monitor works perfectly on the same system.

  • Freezerman Dec 06, 2007

    I'm having the same problem with my monitor. This started to happen when it was first turned on - it would display the picture for about a second and then it would turn off for a second and then back on. Sometimes when the picture was on, the screen resolution would be different. After a 5 minute warm up time the monitor started working like it should. I then just never turned it off which was fine for about two months at which time it went back to the off and on mode and never came out of it. Maybe the power supply is going bad.

    Phillps 190S6FB/27 Monitor. cycles on/off as follows: Power on, green LED power indicator on; 1-2 sec later, screen momentary flashes displaying normal view, then goes dark; Green LED off same time as screen flash; after 1-2 secs power comes back on, cycle repeats. I have manufacturer service manual, but it does not address this failure mode. I think Control board O.K. since I can turn it on/off. I think failure in the Power PCB or Scalar PCB. The question, how to determine which Printed Circuit Board failed? Strategy to determine which PCB failed, and replace board.

    My SyncMaster 740BF is doing the same thing as others have described. Every few seconds the screen blacks out briefly then comes back on. I've checked and rechecked power supply--that's not the problem. Have only had this a year and have loved it up til this started happening a few weeks ago. Even when the screen is showing the image, there are randomly flashing black lines horizontally across the screen. Would love a solution--can someone please find an answer?

    New viewsonic 21". particualrly (it seems, not seriously tested) after reboot, the monitor flicks on for about a second, then goes black. If I power it off, it comes back on for second- then goes black. You can (just!) get somethings going in this "mode" but it's quite hopeless for any real use.

    I thought it might be some sort of auto-turn-off setting- but I haven't had any joy with that. It's definitely not the gfx card or power- at least, other monitors don't have the same problem (and neither does this one most of the time, and when the gfx card dies the monitor indicates there's no signal- which it's not doing here).

    Seems to get better if left for a while. Seems a bit random in its attacks. I've thought that a reboot- and/or leaving the computer off for a few minutes- can fix it. But other times it's just happened for a while, and then seemingly fixed itself. I'd love a solution. (I have another of these monitors on another machine, and it's never given me a problem.) Otherwise, gotta send it back!

  • HARLEYRELOAD Apr 12, 2008


    I recently purchased one Acer X223W monitor. and it worked perfectly for about 2 months. One day a few weeks back it started having problems. When I turn it on the monitor displays the Acer logo, and then my desktop for about 4 seconds. Then it turns itself off. When I attempt to turn it back on it will show my desktop for a second or two and then turn itself back off. No matter what I try I cannot make the monitor stay on for more than a few seconds.
    I have tested the monitor on multiple computers with the same result. I can only assume this rules out my video card as the cause of the problem. If I place a different monitor in the same port it works fine.

    Do you have any suggestions as to how I can fix this? Can I send it in to be repaired (I have only had the monitor a few months.)

    Similar problem: the monitor simply "goes black," i.e., stops displaying its image. It is still drawing power; for example, the green power light stays on. Turning the monitor off and then on again brings back my desktop -- but this happens frequently enough to be a pain.

    I have the same problem, and it's not a problem with the power supply. If this many people have the same problem with the same monitor/model, then I would say its the monitor that is faulty. Aopen appears to agree with this since they have discontinued it without any support to consumers having this problem.

I opened up and fixed a monitor just like this. The reason it only stays on for a second is because there are 4 or 5 bad capacitors on the power supply board that have over heated and gone bad due to cheap parts or poor ventilation. All I had to do was replace them and the monitor worked fine after that. Also i resoldered one joint on the bottom. While I dont reccomend the average home user to try this it is an extremely easy fix if you have the right tools.

Oh my goodness! I was ready to chuck my other monitor out because of the on then off after a few seconds (faulty thing) - when I came across one of the posts earlier.

All I had to do was to push the "Auto" button twice and now it's back to normal.

Thanks to the guy who posted the solution. Thought I'd post it again here in case someone else is having the same problem.

Saves me buying another monitor! Whoohoo!

This is probobly a problem with the power supply. check computer with another monitor in prder to determine which unit causes the problem. lots of electonic devices got a high-voultage defence system, which shuts them off when they receive too much power. my guess is the mechanism in charge of adjusting power level to monitor got screwed up for some reason.

Like many users here, i fix these things too. And while I agree that many screens have faulty boards inside, the highest degree that I find faulty are simply the screen ribbons not seating properly.
Why so many others only replace the complete board, i'm not sure, but that's just me being awkward ;-) I do seem to find the most weird problems around :)

The first thing is - why does AUTO-ADJUST affect a screen ? That's mainly because your PC is sending out a specific signal for screen resolution and frequency. All screens have a maximum resolution & frequency, and if you go past that level the screen switches off (or to standby) to protect itself.
Sometimes a screen will notice a bad setting instantly, and some may take a few seconds before they switch off. That's just normal.
If the AUTO doesn't fix yours, and you don't want to be soldering new components or replacing complete boards, then you can try as I do.....
Take the rear panels off the screen (these can be very weird & complicated, held with screws and/or tape, metal tags, plastic pins etc., and sliding fitiings), and eventually you will reach the actual white plastic panel at the rear of the TFT screen itself.
Usually at the top-centre of the screen (nearly) you will find a flat ribbon cable taped down to the back of the screen. Note that you should only attempt this is (1) you are good at this kind of thing, and (2) you have good dexterity with your hands - cos this isn't as easy as it may sound.....
remove that tape holding the ribbon. Do that very very carefully, the ribbon is fragile, and the connection it goes into is even more so. The ribbons just pull downwards - keep it flat until its out, and 'never' bend that cable. (the tape is best removed by keeping it flat/close to the back of the screen, and pulling towards the top of the screen slowely - DONT just pull it away from the screen, it'll damage the parts very easily.
If you have some, spray a bit of SERVICOL electrical cleaner on the ribbon & screen connection, then put the ribbon back in again - this is far more awkward than removing it - do it slow and carefully, never being rough with it, never forcing it to hard. The connection your pushing the ribbon into is very easily broken by pressure, so don't touch it or grip it.

Next put the tape back over the connection & gently rub it flat, I always replace the tape with stronger types of 'duct tape'. That's not essential though, although if the original tape seems not too sticky any longer, you should make the effort to replace it.
Rebuild the parts again, and see if you're as lucky as me :) I fix about 5 a week from my supplier, and any size from 14 to 22 inch screens usually gets sorted by this kind of repair.
Good Luck.

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After it turned off, you have to check if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.

I have a lg 1920p that does the same thing.finally got mad and took it apart and found that the plasma or whatever liquid was seeping out from the bottom of the screen which in turn shorted out the board that has all the control buttons on it. disconnected the board and it works fine minus the control buttons.

The lcd has three parts the screen plate(windows)/the logic(vga)/the inverter(power plug). Parts that go are the backlight ccfl's, behind the plate, and parts of the inverter, ie capacitors, all three take a bit of power from the inverter. The self test check that all the lights are ok and the inverter is ok, else it switchs off, ie if 3/4 light work it will switch off(my own case), hence the on chech error then off, However sometime there are stages of on/off ie on/ but no screen display, if that is the case the following may be of help...if you put bright light at an angle close to lcd can you see a windows shadow, text icons etc, ie still logic power passing,then .... (from a.n. other) after two weeks searching
I finally find doctor living stone http://www.aplusperfect.com/articles/lcd_capacitor_repair more fun with paulbtorrent, the takening the case bit off is like opening your wallet a second time after buying a new LCD, but you must! smallest two screw driver's flat headed, practice using two pennies stuck together()with your fingers after, one little () move and inch and {} again, with the case , it does
not break, just need to lever open [once open you realize they somehow put that old briefcase clip inside!] also note the bright light test to do first to see if can see a windows screen , and that capacitors are one for a number of things that a make a
inverter work! there a transistors as well, given that however, to replace all the capacitors on my inverter, was 11 capacitors, cost me $11 (uk ebay) and already had the iron and solder. So only cost me me $11 to try and see but no luck , still fun and I still can see the screen for 2 sec' at a time plus I have a spare set of caps now in the event that the new one do go burst! you have to laugh really, what next , a new on/off button, as you work though the whole inverter ! mmmMMMMmmmMMMMmmmMMMMTim Berners-leeMMMMMmmmmMMMMMmmmmcome back all is not
wellMMMMMMMMMMnnnnnnweek later land sight mmmmmMMMMMMMMMmmmmgggggggg(from another a.n other)Generally, if the screen went out quickly, it was the
inverter. If it went out over a slow period of time (flickering etc..) I
would bet it is the lamp.replaceing the lamp should be pretty challenging. as that requires complete breakdown of your LCD, extraction of your dead lamp, and soldering in your new lamp... but I would like to say that I it did this after realizing it's 2 x kitchen strips inside [========] with wires that can connect back to the inverter with out any desoldering(ie kit assembly/dis) with the outter case remove (glass plate safe away) I could reconnect and see that 3/4 were working (i!i hardcard ) cause the inverter to switch off after a secound ! order ccfl and replace and going
to cheap and see if I can get away with fitting a 15" in my 19' as it a 1/3 of the price ! the market as drop out there, hope the inverter does not miss the length, or the screen out put.

Why does everyone assume it's a hardware problem. I have no electrical knowledge or money to repair, buy new, or replace parts for my monitor. Give me more possible software solutions. I think this has something to do with "Auto-adjustment"
Because if I cycle my power button off for 5-10 seconds the monitor works perfectly, but if I cycle it quickly, only allowing it to stay off for 1-2 seconds, it says 'auto adjustment in progress' and turns itself off again.
Why is this? My computer screen stays black whenever I reset my computer unless I cycle it's power button, which annoys me because I just spent the last month tweaking my computer to boot up as quickly as possible, in about 15-20 seconds and all my system is using an old a7v600 1293 mhz motherboard/chipset which is like a decade or more old... so I was proud. Now I can't even see when my computer is restarted and I have to wait an extra 10 seconds to mess with my moniter, Totally wrecked all my work.
thanks.

Sony has seen this before. Model SDM-HS73. Here is there advise for this problem.
==============================================
The LCD turns itself off and on every few minutes or seconds.
function lno1() {}
lno1()
If the LCD takes several minutes to turn on, or turns itself off and on every few minutes or seconds, perform the following procedure to troubleshoot the issue:

  1. Ensure the power cord is connected to a known working outlet.
  2. Verify that the detachable interface cable is securely connected to both the computer and the display.
  3. If available, connect another display to the computer to confirm the computer is operating properly.
  4. Use a different interface cable to connect the display to the computer.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

LCD's often have problems with the inverters burning out. Using a bright light source, look at the monitor from different angles. If you can see the image in the screen, either your Florescent light is burned out or your inverters that run the lights are bad. Both are replaceable.

I agree with the other solution poster. My en-9110 is doing the same thing and the light on the power brick is cycling on/off with the display. Contact Envision for an RMA if the monitor is still under warranty, if not you can get a cheap power brick off ebay. I would buy an OEM type one though and not a universal one.

It is almost certainly either the gas discharge tubes (flourescent backlights) for the screen, or the inverter (electonics) that powers the lights. Both of these components fail / wear with age, particularly in earlier screens.

I read one person's post that he disconnected the monitor's adjustment control buttons and that worked. After trying other ideas, this is the fix that worked on my problem. I tried the obvious fixes, and things to help identify the problem such as try other monitor, try other power/ data cables, turn off monitor and or computer, and even tried violence (didn't work, but felt good).
Finally I tried the disconnect the monitor control button idea and BINGO, the thing worked. I have already spent a good while adjusting the monitor to suit my needs and tastes, and once you disconnect the buttons that's where it stays. I have a Samsung syncmaster T220, and three Dells, one 20",two 17'', I would have got a new monitor before using the Dells, that's how much better the T220 is. Samsung said they will fix any problem short of the panel (20"-22") for $120 plus shipping. If you can't fix it yourself that may be an option for a good monitor, but there is also the shipping, that changes everything, could be $100 or more, keeping that in mind, New monitor. $220 can get you a good new one if you do you homework. Hope this helped.

I have a 19" HP f1905e LCD monitor. Twice recently, my PC failed to boot - it automatically tried rebooting (successfully) and told me my monitor was the problem.
Went to MSFT: there was an upgrade driver. Downloaded and installed it. Henceforth, the power saver kicked on every 2 seconds, regardless of key use or mouse movements. Finally caught it in a stable condition, and restored to a period prior to the upgraded driver (getting rid of it). Suddenly - all is well and working perfectly again!
Go figure.....

    If you can identify the parts, most likely capacitors, or if you just want to repalce all the capacitors on the power pcb, then you can buy replacement capacitors at your nearest RadioShack. I know RadioShack gets a bad rep for cheap components but I would bet that you will get a supierior cap from RadioShack compared to what's already in your monitor. If you're not electrically inclined, then be very careful because the monitor (large capacitors) has high voltage even when it's uplugged. If you do decide to change the caps then look at the existing caps on the board that you want to change. They will be labeled with the uF (micro farrad) and voltage rating of the capacitor. You will want to get a new capacitor with the same uF number as the one you are replacing and a voltage rating the same (or higher) than the one your are replacing. CAUTION: Do not get a capacitor with a voltage rating that's lower than the one being replaced - this can lead to trouble and is also a fire hazard. This shouldn't be a problem as most capacitors in monitors today are rated for 120V and most RadioShack capacitors are rated for 240V. If you can't find a capacitor with the same uF as the one you're replacing, then you can hook multiple capacitors in parallel (legs of each are soldered to the same joint). Hooking up capacitors in parallel sums their uF capcacity.. For instance, assuming you want to replace a 22uF capacitor but RadioShack has only 10uF and 2uF capacitors. Then replace the 22uF capacitor with two 10uF capacitors and one 2uF (10uF 10uF 2uF = 22uF) hooked in parallel... hope this helps.

When it have this kind of error is a problem of the powerboard.
Anyway you must open it and look at the all capacitors and if are them inflated, if them are inflated must change them.

But can be a problem with inverters... control the transistors - MOSFET on the powerboard.

Good luck!

There are 4 identical transistors in the backlight circuit of these monitors (C5707 or cross-reference to NTE2668, about $3 each) which are prone to failure. They can be replaced by anyone with basic electronics knowledge and soldering skills. Also if your monitor has failed to the point where it doesn't try to light the backlight at all, the failed transistor may have blown a pico-fuse in the power supply circuit. These are labelled on the board as "PF"

Another site I found on google said it was bad solder joints causing the problem. I have an aoc (envision) lm729 ,that is under warranty. so i got rma and sent it in. this monitor went from staying on and going off to just staying on for 10 seconds and going off untill you turned it off and back on, then you had another 10 seconds. if you google it ,a guy has a web page with pics on a diy repair. but use extreme caution when opening any monitor, high voltage is present, and mercury gas in lcd monitors. is best left to a service tech with monitor / television experience. safer to buy a new one, then end up in the emergency room or worse. and cheaper than the er. most stores now have an extended warranty option ,so all you have to do is carry it in for free replacement of one of equal value.

According to Samsung, the problem is that the monitor is going into and out of sleep mode. The recommend pressing a key on the keyboard and if that doesn't work, press the third button from the right in the bottom corner of the monitor, then press a key on the keyboard. Needless to say, none of that worked. It's not software because I've installed Samsung's drivers.

It must be the monitor. If I could just take it out of auto power save mode. My power scheme in Windows is to NOT power off the monitor when it's plugged in.

I've tried it on a computer that has SyncMaster 740 N attached and I've got the exact same problem.

Kill the auto power save mode and I'm sure it would work fine. But I don't know how to do that.

I'm having the same problem and I know it isn't any of the other's above. The computer is hooked to a KVM and there are 11 other machines using the exact same monitor (I'm typing on it now) without issue. More still, the monitor was working some 15 minutes ago and I can't figure out anything that's changed except the mouse started spontaniously working on a completly different computer. I'm thinking it's maybe a software problem.

SOURCE: I am facing problem with my Samsung LCD monitor,

Try to do this: Just before the Windows start up screen (after the bios loading) press F8 and log in at safe mode settings. If at this mode you can see your screen change the resolution settings at a lower set. Save and reboot normally. Now try step by step to increase your resolution. In case of a blank screen appears at a new setting, don't do anything; after some seconds the monitor will come back to the previous settings. Save and go on.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.
