Monitror keeps cycling through on-off

When I boot up the PC the monitor turns on but then it clicks off automatically in a moment, then after a few seconds, turns on and off again. It keeps cycling through the on-off stages. When it turns on- i can see the Windows log on screen momentarily. so I know Windows is booting up correctly. (Windows XP) Once in a while (I have to try and switch it on-off several time from the main power switch) it stays on and works normally. But as soon as it is turned off again or the system reboots again it starts on-off cycles again. I have tried it on another pc with the same results. one if them has on board video, the other one has a video card. can someone help please?

Re: Monitror keeps cycling through on-off

I had the same problem used with my mac mini using the DVI connector. The problem continued with the monitor not plugged into anything. The Solution: When I unplugged the monitor cable from the monitor & cycled the power for the monitor on & off, the monitor cleared itself. I rehooked everything up & it works perfectly. Additional info- possible cause - I was using an external, filtered fan to cool my small computer. When I placed it too close to my computer, I I began hearing a every 1/2 second electical popping sound. I don't know if it was an electrical power problem since all were plugged into the same power strip, or if there was magnetic, radio or other electrical problems caused by the close proximity, but that was what was occurring at the moment the monitor then went out. You should review & share with others what led up to the failure, so we don't duplicate your meltdown!

Re: Monitror keeps cycling through on-off

I also just recently started having this problem. If you look at the power brick the power indicator flashes on and off with the monitor. I think that the power brick is bad. I switched to a different monitor and the computer works fine. The en-9110 cycles on/off with or without a computer attached. I contacted Envision about an RMA.

Re: Monitror keeps cycling through on-off

We have a number of CTX monitors with failing power boards dropping out the back light rendering it black or appearance it is dead. Given the number of them we have seen it would suggest there is a possible weakness in the design and replacement is the only option

Re: Monitror keeps cycling through on-off

Sounds like a power supply problem in the monitor to me...

Re: Monitror keeps cycling through on-off

If you have checked the monitor on multiple computers, then the source of the problem is not your video adapters, or drivers installed. The monitor appears to be defective. Oddly enough, I have the same problem with my CTX monitor. I sent them an email this morning, and hopefully will receive a response soon. I'll keep you up to date.

Re: Monitror keeps cycling through on-off

Sounds like your video adapter settings have been wedged. If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can use the following steps. 1) Boot the laptop into safe mode. Boot into safe mode with networking support if possible. This can be done by tapping the F8 key as the computer first turns on. 2) Once you are at the Desktop, right click on My Computer and select Manage. 3) In the window that appears, select Device Manager from the menu on the left. 4) Find Display Adapters on the right and click the plus sign. This will list the video adapter that you have. NOTE: WRITE this down EXACTLY. You may need to go and get drivers for this. Seeing this is an older model, I doubt you'll need it, but better to be safe then sorry. 5) Go to your manufacturers support web site and download these drivers. You may not need them, but better to be safe then sorry. NOTE: Skip step 5 if you did not boot with network support or cannot get to the Internet. This can be done from normal mode. 6) Right click on the display adpater and choose un-install. Hit OK on the window that appears and reboot the machine when the process is done. 7) The machine will take longer than usual to boot, as Windows XP is re-discovering the video adapter and resetting everything to the defaults. When it is done booting, the screen may look weird since the settings are now the defaults. You can the set them to what you want by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties. Then go to the settings tab. 8) IF it did not re-discover the video adapter (this can be confirmed through the device manager), then go ahead and install the drivers. Windows Update will most likely also have the drivers. NOTE: This process should work with Windows 2000 as well, although I was not able to test it. The only issue I can think of is that it may not auto-discover the video adapter, and you would have to manually download and install the drivers.

You might need to change the screen refresh rate. Go do Control Panel> Display> Setting> Advance, choose 60 Hz. In order to make your Monitor able to display, restart the PC, press F8 on the keyboard frequently upon splashing ( 1 or 2 seconds after PC restarts). Select enable VGA mode by pressing up arrow of the keyboard> press enter. The display should look bigger, then you can start adjusting the screen refresh rate to 60 Hz

Dark screen samsung syncmaster 920 N strange noise behind it

The clicking sound you hear is the power supply board trying to start up, this indicates the board has failed. This is a common problem with all LCD monitors after a few years of use. Parts called capacitors on the power supply board fail and they will keep the power supply from starting up correctly. If you can solder then you can repair the board yourself. Here is a link to a repair guide with pictures and videos showing how to dis-assemble the unit and then what to look for and replace to rebuild the board and get the unit back running.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Monitror keeps cycling through on-off

Found one of these in the dumpster at my shop today. Had the "stays on for 3 sec then turns off" issue. Problem is the bad batch of electrolytic caps of a few years ago. 2 on the power supply board were visibly swelled up (470u/16V and a 1000u/16V). Replaced them both - it's fixed. Cost 50 cents.

My balance technology monitor

Following up to my last question, assuming that your system DOES turn on and boot up, try this:
Click Start
Click Help and Support
Under Pick a Task, click System Restore.

Choose to the Restore uption and then the last date a system restore was done (it will be in bold numbers) and follow the prompts to finish using the next button. This can be undone if it doesn't work by following the same steps again as the computer automatically set a System Restore Point whenever this procedure is done.

Good luck!

Monitor turning itself off

It sounds like the problem is with the computer's video adapter settings. It is very likely that the monitor cannot handle the settings. If you boot into safe mode, can you see everything? If so, then the normal mode settings are too high. Safe mode defaults to the lowest possible settings (thats why everything will look really big) Try turning down the resolution (Right click on the desktop, select properties, go to settings tab) to the lowest possible setting, and then slowly try turn them back up again until you can find the maximum setting the monitor can handle.
