    Chances are good it's the monitor failing and not the video card. does the light on the monitor go off or does the screen just go dark ?

HP TouchSmart 310-1125f display is black


Hearing fans and hard drive spin up doesn't necessarily mean system is working - just without video. If you heard a POST beep or the Windows Startup sound that would be different - and good. Is there any video on the screen at all, even just a blinking cursor in upper left of display? If not, your problem is probably hardware such as ram or motherboard. If this system has a VGA or HDMI output to connect to another monitor or TV would be a good check, but AIO system usually don't have that option. Other than that, and this is a shot in the dark: Ensure the system is off, disconnect the power plug, and hold the power button in for 30 sec for a power reset. Then plug in system and try powering it up again. If no go, you may have a hardware problem and will need a PC Tech. Hopefully it is just loose ram.

Got Clover LCD2084, I try turn-on and only make loud sound and the power turn red and the screen is black.


I would unplug everything from the back of the system, clean the connections with a brush and rubbing alcohol, then plug everything back in. Turn it on and see if you get the same problem. If so then try unplugging the cameras and see if the noise stops. If the noise stops then one at a time I would plug the cameras in watching to see if you get a picture and/or sound. You may have a bad camera that is sending a short to the system that sends the system in to a protection mode.

My Samsung SyncMaster 740N occasionally turns itself off. Timing varies and the condition varies. Usually the screen just goes black - from seconds to hours after it is turned on - the blue LED remains...


This could be because of the 'eco' friendliness of the monitor. Basically a lot of monitors are designed to turn off into a low power state when not in use so to preserve power and life of the monitor. I would return the monitor as the sensors that control this seem to be broken in your monitor.

Sounds like your PC is diplaying out of your monitors range. Try pressing f8 while booting up to get safe mode. then turn down the video resolution to display what your monitor can handle. Good Luck.

Even if i switch on my computer with moniter it doesnt show anything on moniter screen it remains black


Hello. With the computer and monitor OFF, disconnect the signal cable from the video card on your system. Next, turn on the monitor. There should be a bright green box with a pink outline of a video connector inside showing. If there isn't, and the monitor is definitely powered up, then there is an internal problem. If there IS a little green box, etc., the video card in your system is suspect.
  • 1) When turning on the monitor, do you hear the sound of the high voltage initiating?(i.e. you should hear some type of electronic noise like a vibration or crackling of static on the picture tube)
  • 2) If you do hear that high voltage kicking in, it may very well mean that the picture tube is dead and getting a replacement monitor is in your future.
  • 3) If you don't hear the high voltage, quite possibly the transformer that produces it(called a flyback transformer) is defective.
Due to the vast array of inexpensive monitors available, you probably should consider getting a new unit--the cost of a new display will rival the cost of the repair--and you get a fresh warranty to boot. If the picture tube is gone, there's no choice.---Rick

No picture on the screen


Hi,

I have this Panasonic PanaSync SL70 17'' monitor, I don't use it often. It is still in very great shape. However, I tried to turn it on yesterday, I got a black screen. The power LED is on and I can hear the relay is clicking when signal received. I tried to remove the signal cable, I can see it turns to power saving mode. It seems that everything works fine except no picture. I am if the transformer is gone, but not sure. I am wondering if you can help?
