Question about Westinghouse 19" Widescreen Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen works for awhile but then goes blank.

Last night my monitor just went blank. The computer was still on and i unplugged it and plugged back in to a different power source . The screen was able to come back for a few seconds but the monitor just power offs again.

If the computer is turned off the monitor will stay on and just go into standby mode, but the second the computer is connected to it it'll turn off after a few brief seconds.

I've switched power cables and power outlets and it does the same thing.

    I turned it off one night to watch a movie on my other computer because the screensaver was a bit distracting, then when I went to turn it back on I pushed the power button and it came on, flickered for a second, then went to stand by mode. The monitor is a year old. .

    Indeed, having the same problem. When I turn the monitor on, change its resolution on the computer (I have a dual monitor setup), unplug it or do anything like that, the screen gets brightish for a moment, then turns off. The buttons on the side don't do anything that I can see because the screen is blank/dark. At the same time, I can see that the monitor is getting power, the power light is on.

HP LP3065 monitor turns off and won't turn back on; is this a Windows problem


It doesnt sound like a windows problem. A simple test for this is to unplug the vga or hdmi cable from the monitor then turn it on if it has power it should say no signal. Also try either another power cable to the monitor or change the fuse. Hope this helps.

Screen went blank and orange light is on


fiona_sheeha, If ACER warranty service not an option, then unit will need local tech to troubleshoot unit's power supply/inverter circuit for possible COMMON and repairable printed circuit board fix. You must read more of my fixya profile and visit the web links you find there so you will know and understand what ALL your options are!!! Some units require less than $5 in parts to refurbish them to working status. Your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" backlit LCD monitor isn't any different than any other brand of monitor in it's basic operating principles!! I hope this helps. 12fixlouie

Dell LCD monitor quickly goes sleep, on, off over and over


I would recommend that you try it on another computer to see if you are able to reproduce the results. If that is the case you should look at any new drivers, software or updates that have been installed. If the issue continues with another PC, it sounds as though the monitor's power supply is possibly failing. in that case I would suggest you simply replace the whole monitor. Unless you are not shy with a soldering iron. ;) good luck!

Monitor stuck on black, menu buttons not responding


It's sort of a solution, but I work in a computer shop and got this screen in yesterday. I looked at it closely and it's actually the backlight that died. I pulled it apart and found that three of the 820uF/20V capacitors had swollen up. If you replace them then you should be fine, but I went for a different approach and took the inverter board from a laptop and put the in the screen and used an external power supply. It's a bit dark but it works fine now.

Monitor won't come on after unplugging for an electrical storm


Is it plugged into an integrated soundcard on the motherboard or is it plugged into a Graphics card either a PCI or AGP? If it is integrated, you may want to look into a different video card for both better video quality and system performance. Let me know if this doesn't work.

Bank Monitor problems


Unplug the cable from your PC, if the monitor shows a test image, the monitor is fine and the problem is with your graphic card. If you dont see nothing on-screen after unpluging the cable from the PC, then the monitor in damaged. Send it to repair.

My MAG Innovision Monitor went blank, only works if I stay connected to internet


usually this problem is caused by a faulty inverter circuit. transistors might been running too hot or a leaky capacitors also.not an easy task but try looking down for any defects on high voltage sections.
