    My Dads monitor will not go past turning on then going to gold light. He cant even get into bios, He was messing with the sleep settings before this happened. He was also cleaning the computer when it happened too. I have had him check all connections and he even went and got a new video card and still nothing? I am stumped.

It will do this when it's not getting a video signal from the computer. Make sure that the signal cable is firmly plugged in at both ends. Also verify that the computer is actually starting up. The monitor may not be getting a signal because the computer isn't sending any.

I have a Samsung SuncMaster 940BW 19'' LCD Monitor. It's a geat Monitor in my humble opinion in everything, except that since i got it i have one problem with it, and it wasnt possible for me...


This is a common problem with monitors when changing resolution. What probably happened is you may have tried to change the resolution, or an application changed the resolution, to an incompatible resolution.

For example, if you have a tiny little screen it can't display that huge resolution that a 32 inch monitor has. So, your monitor is stuck in that wrong resolution.

To fix this problem, you need to boot into Safe Mode. Restart your computer, and as it is booting up tap F8 a bunch of times, and then select Boot into Safe Mode.

When it boots up, right click on the desktop, click Properties (Windows XP) or Screen Resolution (Windows 7). When the window pops up, click Settings (if on Windows XP, if on Windows 7 skip to next step). From this window, change the resolution back to the basic 800 x 600 screen resolution.

Now, reboot your computer normally. You should be able to see the desktop. Now, you can do the same thing that you did in safe mode and turn up your resolution. BUT, when you change it, if the screen goes BLANK again, DO NOT press anything. After 15 seconds it should go back, and you can try a lower resolution.

Hope this helps! Thanks for using FixYa.

The screen goes blank after 1 second display, flicks back again to the display for 1 second and back to blank, this goes on non stop. The little led next to the on/off button goes from green to yellow...


pandres, Your monitor will need troubleshooting to find out reason why the 2 "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" fail to remain lighted. They provide "white light" so you can see what is on the lcd panel. Connect a "known good" monitor to your pc to prove monitor is bad. If pc is ok, then your monitor will need repair. This type problem not new and is very common for all brands of ccfl back-lit lcd monitors. Watch some video clips at YOUTUBE that show disassembly and repair of ccfl lcd monitors. Read fixya profiles of "budmrtn" buddymc" "12fixlouie" for more information. 12fixlouie

My monitor goes to sleep all the time, not


trevor_jody, I hope you have valid HP warranty! If not , then you will need to do some reading at this blog: http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/ The cheapest way to fix is DIY. But you and only you can determine if you are able to do the required work necessary to refurbish the unit. Swap-in a good unit to use while you are researching the common fixes for your 2338h unit. Your unit still works!!! Just not long enough! Your goal is to make it work for 20 million seconds. Try these other web sites also. www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm (site run by "buddymc") and www.badcaps.net , www.lcdparts.net Next thing to do will be to understand the "flashlight test" to determine state of your monitor's "switch-mode-power-supply". Is it in full or partial shutdown mode when screen goes BLACK or BLANK and BLACK? If you can still see Win-desktop after screen goes black, then SMPS is in partial shutdown mode. Blank n black=full shutdown. Do some reading in my and "buddymc" and "budmrtn" fixya profiles by typing our fixya "nicknames" into the "search for solutions or.... " bar at top of fixya screen and then hit enter or click search button. You will also find DIY video clips at YOUTUBE that will also be of some use too!! All that we ask you to do after doing your research is to come back to fixya and tell us if we were of some help and that you have learned something about how your monitor functions and if you have been able to make the decision to DIY or contract out the work needed to restore your unit to like-new condition. Bye for now. 12fixlouie

LCD monitor goes blank


It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.

Try this.

Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)
