    Well i picked up this monitor out of a trash pile. When i turned it on its hue was somewhat redish and then it went normal then it went blank though you can slighty see what was there before, though, it is very dark. i think it something else than the VGA controller. i plugged in when it was apart and one of these long lights that rang alond the top didn't fully illuminate. i think the wires might be looses as well, i handled it very carefully when taking it apart, but i could have done that. I didn't wear gloves when taking this apart so i have already contaminated the plasic panels and other things that would have to be cleaned before reassembly. so its gets to be added to my pile o electronic parts. But it was fun to take apart.

Hey CBernard84,

While a blank screen could be caused by a controller, it could also be caused by something simple like the settings on the controller.

Question: When you boot up, does the screen show the Power On Self Test then go blank? If yes, the screen refresh rate is most likely set too high.

Comment me back, if this is the case. I can walk you through the procedure.
Hope this helps,
Mike

Mag monitor lt782s - green light on screen black


This means that the power supply board has a problem. The problem is that the part of the circuit that controls the backlight has failed. This is usually caused by capacitors that have gone bad or transistors that have shorted.

I have a MAG innovision 900p 19" monitor that turns white everytime it is turned on.. I've tried cleaning the dust from the connectors and have tried turning it on and unplugging it. Nothing I can think of...


White screen means that the video signal is not getting from the vga board inside the monitor to the actual lcd screen panel.
It may be a bad vga input board (also called a main board)
OR
It could be simply a bad connection on the wiring harness that connects this board to the lcd panel
Or
it could be a blown fuse on the board on the board that is permanently mounted to the back top of the lcd panel.
I would check the wiring connection to the lcd panel inside the monitor first

I have a Mag Innovisin monitor that I use with my laptop so I have a bigger screen. It will turn on but after 1 second the screen goes black. Any ideas what's causing this and if it can be fixed?


eadaniels, Could be <$10 on DIY repair if you know what a soldering iron(pencil) is used for! $40 - $80 if contract out work to local electronics tech that understands forwards and backwards common known fault conditions for CCFL back-lit LCD monitors. Read some of my fixya profile for a while. If your display had bright, crisp, colorful text and graphics displayed on it' LCD panel just moments before this black sceen, or blank n black screen problem developed you may have a shot at cheap diy repair as long as you do some research. Fixya tech's "budmrtn" and "buddymc" are two more techs that are really good!!! Let us know what your plans are after you do some reading and surfing.

Hi...there,

Monitor reads no connection


1. Check the cable connection to your PC. It might be disconnected.
2. If your have more then one cable input on your LCD monitor(VGA or DVI) check if you selected correct input; digital for DVI or analog for VGA.

Good luck!

Mag monitor doesn't display bios post


I have no experience with the DVI links because such technology is still unavailable here in Argentina. We have DVI video cards but finding a suitable DVI monitor is another (long) story.
I think that your card (that has 2 DVI ports) is initializing one port first (the primary one) and then, when windows starts, it initializes the other and outputs video from both ports.
Try connecting the monitor in the other DVI port.
If your card has a VGA output, the VGA gets initialized first.

MAG Innovision LT1919WDb flat screen goes black


I had the same problem. I contact the manufactuer and they refused to fix it. They said it would cost an additional $100 to have it fixed. I have not even had it a year. I thought products sold in America were suppose to last longer than a year? What has happened to companies standing behind there products. Beware of this monitor!!! DO NOT BUY IT!!! LT1919WDB

It sounds like this one needs component-level troubleshooting, probably in the power supply section.
