Monitor flicks off

I turn on my computer and everyting looks fine and my monitor just flicks off, followed by the no signal pop up; power light is amber, CPU stays on. Have UPS backup, no alarm goes off that power is lost. Very random problem, sometimes I can work for days and no problem. I have switched monitors (first had View Sonic VA 1930 WM, now using emachines monitor), then switched power cords. Problem still occurs

If you have switched monitors and the problem persists, I would first look at your cabling, if you did not use the same cable on both monitors then the drivers would be suspect. Go to your video cards site and update the drivers after checking all your cables and connections, also check that the video card is properly seated on the motherboard (if its not integrated onto the motherboard). An easy way to check the monitors, is to plug them into another computer (EG: laptop) and they should have the same problem there, i doubt they will from the symptoms you are having. also try bypassing the UPS and plug the monitor straight into an extension cord or wall.
Remeber, try this in steps, not all at once, so you can tell what works..

Hope this Helps!

Hi there. My monitor has been working fine up to yesterday. I have all connections plugged in and i turn on the monitor and then the ACER sign comes up and then it says No Signal. and then the blue light...


Your monitor is fine, the problem lies with your computer. Your monitor is not receiving the POST signal from your computer. I suggest you remove your computers graphics card and plug your monitor cable into onboard graphics, then power up and see if the monitor gets a signal. If it does then it means that your graphics card has stopped working. If you still don't get signal then I suggest you take your PC to your local computer shop and get a qualified technition to have a look at it just in case the motherboard is damaged. You can also try out your monitor on another system just to be sure.

More likely to have failing power supply problem due to bad caps, look for caps with bulging top first and post back what you see inside, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

The monitor displays the screen then goes black. For example, I turn of the monitor off and then back on. I will see the screen for 1/2 second then it will go black.


Hi sglick - you will need to do a few simple trouble shooting steps to pinpoint the problem, as this can be cause by several different things.
Follow these steps and reply back with your findings: 1. Unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor. 2. Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet. 3. If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad. 4. Disconnect all connected devices except the mouse, keyboard and monitor. This includes thumb drives and camera-type memory cards from card reader slots. With the devices disconnected, restart the computer. If the computer starts and the monitor now displays a picture, a device is preventing the computer from starting or sending a proper video signal to the monitor. Update the BIOS to resolve this issue.
If doing all of this doesn't change your issue of no video after seeing it pop on, try the monitor on a different computer/laptop, and if you have one, a different monitor on the system with the problem.
Let us know what you find following these steps and we can figure out what to do next. -Trev

The power button flicks on and off and I have checked all my hookups, plugs ins and they all seem to be in working order


If you mean the on light goes dim, then I've had the same problem - unplug both computer and monitor - hold power button for monitor for 15-30 seconds...then power it back on and then power on the computer. Seems from other sites there is a power issue with the monitor - this worked for me.

Test your power supply for correct voltages. If they are all OK, then your motherboard is toast.

Monitor problems with kds


The monitor is either overheating, or (more likely I think) the overheat sensor is sending a false overheat signal.

I've heard it can be bypassed by either clipping the sensor or clipping and then shorting the leads. I can't confirm that and I don't know what the sensor looks like or what it is.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Computer making noise


Monitor clicks, pops, or makes other noises. Issue: Monitor clicks, pops, or makes other noises.
Cause: This issue could be caused by any of the below possibilities:
  1. Monitor degaussing.
  2. Monitor changing resolution.
  3. Monitor syncing with the video card.
  4. Monitor warming up.
Solution: Noise when turned on or off It is normal for standard computer CRT monitors to make a click, pop, crackle, hum, buzz, or other type of noises when they are first turned on or turned off.
Noise when monitor goes into standby mode When the monitor enters a "standby mode" or "power savings mode" this is similar to the monitor being turned off. It is completely normal for the monitor to make a noise when the monitor enters this mode.
Noise when opening Microsoft Windows or other operating system or when opening a game When a computer opens its operating system, for example, a computer opening Microsoft Windows or when a user runs a computer game it is very common that the monitor will need to switch its resolution of the operating system or game. When switching resolutions it is normal for the computer monitor to make some type of noise and/or for the computer monitor to flick or flash.
Noise during normal operation If the computer monitor click, pops, or flashes while it is being used this is not normal operation. It is very likely that the monitor may be failing or a component within the monitor has already failed and could also potentially be a fire hazard. We highly recommend that the monitor be repaired, replaced, and/or looked at by a qualified technician.
