I am sorry about this but the correct repair for this issue is replacement of 4 transistors on the main power board inside the monitor I just completed a repair on a dell 17 inch monitor it now works flawlessly. the process can be found on the internet and it is very delicate work. if you can all their service center you used then by all means call them,
And just fyi TYPING IN ALL CAPS IS THE SAME ASSCREAMING AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNG SOO PLEASE STOP AND USE CORRECT NETTIQUET.
you have a nice day now.

Whenever there is a power outage, monitor wont power on, i have to wait for more than one hour. No LED light at all.


Your monitor probably detect a power surge when the power comes back and an internal protection is triggered to shut the power input. (breaker).

Try using a surge protector or a UPS.

Monitor blinking after power outage


Check the power supply section first.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I have a I-Inc monitor model# CY-199. The power went out and back on after a minute, the monitor was on and working when the power went out, when the power came back on the power button went blue like...


It would be nice if all badcaps are bulged/leaking. Changing the lamps is a pain in the ass, i will try it myself with an 191d. But i have tried first the power supply with multimeter capable of 100kHz AC 200mV range. Better if you borrow an ESR meter capable of in circuit measurement and test all condensators.

Allways discharge, disconnect from pc, switch iMonitor on and pull wall plug, push ON button for safety. My 400V capacitor is then down to 7VDC (germany 230VAC mains). Or wait for 30 min, (i am not patient enough for that).

Video went dim and bright and then stoped


try to check if the cable connected to your monitor is connected properly. Try to tighten the screws and locks but dont force it too much. Then Turn off the monitor and turn it on. If problem still continues,
try to check the monitor in other computers if it works fine, then the problem will be on your computer, or the power lines of your house, check if the current is good. If its then maybe
there may be a problem with the connector. Try to change it if you can.

If problem still continues then maybe theres a problem with the power circuits of your monitor.

Hope this will help you out.
Pm me if you still have that problem, i will provide more solutions.
Thanks :)

After a power outage, monitor won't turn on


Anytime there is an electrical surge the weakest part is the "Inverter" inside your monitor. It is two pencil size tubes that generates the DC power to the backlight of your monitor. Bring to repair shop and ask to look at the inverters. Once changed it will work fine

Turning itself off


Well,the only reason it wil do so is a Loose conection in its power circuit.
You would not be able to Fix the Internal circuit.
Howver you can doublecheck the External connections.
By tring to connect them Securely.
by replacing the Power cord connecting the Monitor to the Socket.
If there are any surge protectors or UPS in the circuit then Remove them and connect them directly.
