Hello Katherine ann, hi, the faded and blurry picture is usually caused by poor LCD panel connections, due to loose contacts and screws. This is usually poor ventilation, or factory defects. Since you mention its only 6 months old, it is still cover for warranty, call your dealer for service.
mark587, Did you shine a very bright flashlight 1" from the screen to try and see the WIN-desktop ?? Even though the screen appears BLACK. Your words above said: JUST CAN'T SEE IT Did you really NOT see anything? Have you seen any of the longer video clips of "LCD Monitor Disassembly" on YOUTUBE? Some BLACK screen "symptom" lcd displays can be repaired for less than $10 in parts. Capacitors! Also check videos on lcd repair. Then get back here to fixya and I or any of the guys can help you decide what to do with your display whoose screen is now dark and lifeless. After doing the YOUTUBE thing you may even tell us what you will do!!! Hope this was helpful. Yes we do want to hear back from you. please rate this response on fixya. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com. Bye for now.
How old is the monitor? Under warranty? If the monitor is an LCD unit and several years old, you might be looking at a new unit--does the screen go black or loose all data and turn blue or white? If it's going black, you can check to see if its the monitor or computer. Obtain a bright flashlight. Dim or turn off the lights in the room. Turn on the flashlight and place it extremely close to the screen (this will not work on a CRT monitor). If you do not see anything, then the video signal is not reaching the screen. However, if you do see a dim image in the display, there is a problem with the monitor. There are thin, very bright fluorescent tubes in LCD monitors. They provide the back-lighting for the display(the reason you get a bright, vivid picture ) and do have a finite lifespan. You might be able to find a repair shop that can replace these tubes but, be warned, the repair is involved and the price will probably rival a new monitor--with fresh warranty. If the problem is the computer(desktop), the first thing I would do is remove the unit to the outside. Open up the side cover and give the entire inner case a good cleaning with compressed air--not over 30-40 psi. Large amounts of dust are sucked in by those cooling fans which are unfiltered. I clean my systems out about every 4-6 months. Heat builds up from lack of air flow around boards and can cause the problems you describe--especially if you have a high-performance graphics card with its own fan. (Be especially careful when cleaning this as the fan is delicate--hold it in place and gently but firmly puff air around it)---Hope I helped you!---Rick
Hi, There could be a problem with your display card settings or the display card itself. If you are using Windows operating system, make sure that you have the monitor driver installed for that specific monitor. This is to ensure that Windows only allows settings for which your particular monitor was designed. Let me know if I can assist you any further regarding this. Best wishes, Graemevm
I have the same problem its defenitly a problem with the lcd monitor not with the graphics card nor the pc. I hooked up the digital and afterwards the vga connection both had the same result. 1 s perfect screen all visible but than black. pushing the on/off or standby button again shortly 1s the display works than it blanks. Did the same test while connected to a dvd player via the composite video... same problem . Since the previous posts are that old and without a solution I guess there is no hope in getting it fixed.
XEROX 19" (XG92D) 5 MONTHS OLD...IT GOES TO WHITE WHEN WINDOWS TELLS IT TO TRUN OFF AFTER 2 HRS...IT GETS HARDER TO COME ON EACH TIME IT IS TURNED OFF. I TOLD WINDOWS TO NEVER TURN IT OFF. IF THE POWER GOES OFF I MUST TURNED IT OFF AND ON MANY TIMES, THEN IT COMES ON.
I THINK IT MAY NOT COME ON NEXT TIME...
