Re: faulty screen

You might need to replace the surface mount capacitors. measure the ESR on them, the higher it is, the more likely you are to get ripples. If this doesn't say much to you, take it to a lab. Use the warranty if you have it offcourse. Good luck

Re: faulty screen

Try doing a doing a factory reset on the monitor. could also be the brightness could be out of range.
and try not to place monitor next to microwaves, magnets or high power electircal devices.

Re: faulty screen

I just had the same issue.
I think I've fixed it!
I went into the display settings where you can control the screen refresh rate (display properties > settings > advanced > monitor).
The only option listed was 60 MHz. Bummer. I was sure that was it.
Then I unchecked the box that says only display settings that this monitor can display (or something like that). I then selected 75MHz. Bingo!! It worked

Re: faulty screen

Mine has the waves when using the 15 pin VGA. When using the DVI connector they are not present. The DVI uses diffrential signaling which is imune to noise and the VGA is single wire.

Re: faulty screen

I found the solution on the "waves" problem. I changed the pixels. The screen is now fixed!! No more waves. Carol49

Re: faulty screen

Are you using DVI cables? If you use the traditional blue vga ones you will see waves across your screen.

LG HDTV Monitor Permenantly switched on but no display white screen with V.2.0.0 moving around the screen

sounds like you are possibly over resolution (setting resolution higher than the monitor can show. Try setting to low resolution and see if it shows up. Try VGA first and move up if it shows.

Connect the monitor to a different computer, to see if the monitor works at all.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if your computer really is "sending" a video-signal through the "data" cable. If not, then either the data-cable or the video-card inside the computer is faulty.

New monitor purchased with a package with compaq desk top, but trying to use with a Acer desk top, screen comes on , but then goes completely dark after about two seconds. If switched off then on, again...

Could be a faulty monitor, or could be missing the driver information for the monitor. Usually when you first connect it will use a generic driver to start but then should automatically download and install the correct driver information for the monitor. Could also just be a faulty cable, power or VGA, HDMI, which ever you are using. Try using different cables first, then you can google search for the correct driver and manually install it.

My whole screen has a blueish green tint

  • Make sure the plugs are hard into the sockets, one loose pin can cause strange colour problems.
  • A faulty signal cable between PC and monitor can also cause colour problems, try a different cable if possible
  • Try it on a different computer to find out whether the computer or the monitor is the problem. If it's the monitor and none of the above works, it will need service or replacement. If it's the computer, your video card is likely to be the problem.

Will not come light blinks showing power, but screen remains black...have tried all resets, hooked up different computers to it etc...

It's possibly the cable/plug points. I leave the vga plug unscrewed so that the computer is easy to move around and I sometimes have problems with the screen not coming on. Try a different cable.

LCD Monitor

Hi rhymers3,

First, check that monitor power save is disabled. Right click on desktop, properties, Screen Save tab, power button. Select "Never" for the "Turn Off Monitor" drop-down box.

Also, check that the monitor itself doesn't have any power save/ sleep options enabled.

Another possibility is a faulty graphics card or faulty cable to the monitor - try moving the cable/card and see if the image comes and goes.

Try using a different (lower) display resolution. It could be that the one you currently have is just on the limits of not working with that monitor.

Good luck.

LG1717S - Power light flashing - no image.

The monitor is probably on protection.

To start unplug monitor from power and from computer and test computer with different monitor to find out if it is monitor or computer fault.

If it is computer fault and no video signal , then test:

  • Video cable.
  • Video adapter on PC (sometimes integrated on motherboard)
  • Motherboard.

If it is monitor fault , then the monitor is on protection.

When on protection you keep having a flashing led on front of the monitor , and monitor turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, faulty inverter board, faulty input board, or a fault on LCD Digital Controller board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

Try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Monitor goes black

Snava, Ihagmann,
Have you checked how firmly is the power cable attached to the monitor? Can you reproduce the problem by moving either end or twisting the cable in different parts?
Have you tried a different power cable?

Screen goes blank when I move the mouse

Did it work properly using a VGA (analog) cable? If so, check your DVI (digital) cable against the pictures at the bottom of
You probably have one of the two at the left. Each has a different bandwidth, translating to a maximum resolution. The native resolution for your monitor might be marginal if you have a single-link DVI-D cable.
My 204B seems very picky about signal-level. It blinks when connected by DVI, even though it should be fine with a single-link cable, and complains about the settings even though the settings are optimal. Maybe yours is similar. I have ordered a dual-link cable and will try that myself.

Problems with my DCL9A

As posted here

Capacitors have many functions but I would most certainly check your powersupply inside the monitor. Capacitors are also used to remove the 60 hz Sine Wave Ripple (hum) that commonly causes interferance in electronics. Though the AC has most likely been converted to DC a side effect is pulsed DC. The capacitor charges up and slowly discharges to smooth out the pulse. A bad capacitor wont charge and discharge or work less efficient than before. Either way the whole point is . . .
Wether your experiencing a white screen or simply interference, check all components related to the power supply first.
