Question about Proview PL926WBi 19" LCD Monitor
I have a 19" DCL LCD monitor.
I shut down my computer and the monitor would not shut down. The power light kept alternating on and off. I tried shutting it off with the on/off button, but that would not work, I finally just unplugged it.
Today I powered up my computer, and the monitor just sits there with a black screen, making this little faint popping sound. I tried to power it up with the on/off switch but the power light does not come on.
Has it bitten the dust?

You need to contact Proview. It is a problem with the monitor. I had the same problem and I was lucky. The warranity was going to run out in 15 days. They sent me a return number "I had to pay shipping and insurance" and they sent me a replacement. The replacement had a problem with the screen. It looked like it had been shot by a bb gun. Proview is refusing to replace. Hope you have better luck. Here is their contact info.

The power inverter is the problem and the only way to fix it is to replace the board. It was a poor design and my Proview 19" experienced the same screen issues as those previously stated. You'll pay $25 for shipping and up to $65 in repair costs. The kicker with Proview is the lousy 1 year warranty. I threw my Proview away and purchased a Hanspree 19" with a 3 year warranty.
There is a 3rd party repair facility in TX that specializes in this type of repair for a flat rate of $75 but that doesn't include your cost to ship and insure it. Another possibilty is to buy the invereter yourself and break open the back and replace it. If you can find the correct part it should run you about $35.
I rank Proview monitors in the same category as the Koss Home Theatre, which is JUNK!

"IF YOU HAVE THE ON FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN OFF PROBLEM, DONT REPLACE ANYTHING UNTILL YOU HAVE TRIED THIS" hey guys i have the 2second problem aswell but!, i was just about to throw mines away when i can stumbled across away how to get it working proper again and again and again!. ive seen lots of help pages like this where everyone is talkin about replacing parts, but if u screen flicks on and then off it should work with my quick fix. heres how and i hope it works for you. Boot up ur pc as u would usually and wait awhile untill you think everything has loaded up or has reached the logon stage. Then if you look carefully at ur screen and press the menu button you should be able to see it thery faintly (i shine a lamp at it to see better). Then i cycle through OSD (on screen disply) menu using the up or down buttons on my monitor untill i see the "AUTO" option. at this stage i press MENU button "2 times" Then i cycle through the OSD untill i see the "RESET" option and again i press the MENU button to confirm the reset. Then simply press the power button to switch it off and then back on....HEY PRESTO! it working again. I have told 11 people this fix and they all reported back that it works for them 2. this method should work every time aslong as you stiil can see the green LED on ur monitor.

i just had this problem with my screen (proview pl716s) if you open the case and take out the power board, there are 6 470 uf capasitors bundled together and 1 220uf capasitor replace all 7 and that should fix your problem , that is what i did and it worked like a charm , oh and btw make sure before you swap your monitor from an older standard monitor to the lcd make sure the resolution is high enough becuase if it is not then the monitor will not be able to be displayd , hope that helps
