Question about Computers & Internet

5 Answers

I have an X2Gen MW22U monitor. While using, I heard a heavy static sound, then the monitor went black. I can't get it to work now. I disconnected the wires and then reconnected. Restarted the computer. Tried the on/off switch a few times. Nothing. Think this is easy to fix, or is the monitor trash? I purchased it last September, 2007.

    Any other suggestions. Can I test the power supply myself. Any other things that I can do to check the monitor?

  • ddimauro_012 Sep 23, 2008

    Marked. I don't have another computer to hook the monitor to. But I did hook up an old monitor that I am using right now. So is the power ok since this monitor works? Also, the X2Gen connects to a box that plugs to an outlet. Is that the power supply the the monitor? Last, is there a fuse in the monitor that could have blown?

Hi 
First check whether  power is coming to the monitor.
If power is their means then unplug the cable which is connect to the cpu then which on power check whether any msg is display in the monitor if not means.
Then open the pannel and then check the fuse if their or else check the circuit board whether power is coming or not.
If u have warranty means then u can claim it.
Thank you

    • Check to make sure the signal cable is firmly connected in the socket.

    • Check to see if the computer system's power is ON.

    • Check that the Brightness Control is at the appropriate position, not at the minimum.

Best thing to try here in isolating if this is a power supply problem is to try connecting the monitor to a different computer ad check if this one will work , because if the monitor still wont work on a different CPU so the monitor is bad, In checking the power supply try to open the tower of your computer and check if the fan even spin when you try to power ON the computer becuse if there's no light on the MOBO or the fan are not spinning the power supply is bad...

Hope that helps............

    Yes if this old monitor is working it only means the problem is on the monitor already, because you wont be able to use the computer with the old monitor if the monitor is the problem,,,,

    That's good, if you can test power supply. Provide power up command (low to High) in power supply and test its output voltages.

    If found OK, check converter board supply, should be approx 21~22 volts dc and stable.

    Please do this testing process if you have electronics knowledge ! Electric Shock risk is involve there.

You should powercycle the Monitor.
Unplug the printer from the power and press and hold the power button on the monitor for 30 seconds. (It wont show anything)
Try the same again than.

The monitor is going into sleep mode and not coming out easily or now at all. Yellow light is flashing and does not turn green. Started coming out of computer stand by with this issue a few weeks ago......


Sounds like the problem I'm having. Research uncovered a common problem with failed capacitirs on the power supply board. If you look at the tops of the electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board and any of them is bulging, you've found the problem. Check out http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/Repair-Kit-X2gen-MW22U-DCAC0006-LCD-Monitor-Capacitor-P1799919.aspx for replacement capacitor set.

Monitor shows picture for 1/2 second then goes black, 22" display. also will not show display menus. have hooked another monitor up and works fine. also have hooked up to another computor and problem...


When you switch the monitors, do you still use the very same vga cable? If you don't, then it's time to change the monitor. When it turns on and off inmediately it means that it's receiving the signal, but that's it. If it's brand new, exchange it.
