Re: Monitor failure

I have just cracked open a Viewsonic VX724 monitor with the same problems mentioned above. This is a power supply issue. As I am a technician I can repair my power supply by replacing a few capacitors and a couple of surface mount transistors on the back of the power supply PCB. If you aren't a technician than I would suggest you weigh the cost and either source a new powersupply and install it or scrap your monitor.

Re: Monitor failure

There are bulbs that light up the display so you can see it on the inside. They go out, just like the bulb in your bathroom. No way to fix this and get the dam thing back together. Toss it and get a new one. I've got photos of the one I took apart. It's a mess. But very cool to look at.

Everything is zoomed in

My E19T6W 19" LCD monitor has a menu that keeps popping up on the bottom right corner of
my screen. Has been doing this continually since I got it. Changes from the eMachine monitor tour to resolution and contrast menus. I keep turning it off and within seconds it'll be right back. For the most part I just ignore it, but recently it has been driving me insane during movies.

My E19T6W 19" LCD monitor

Sorry, I have no solution, just thought you might like to know that I am having the exact same problem.
The only thing I can add is that it appeared after a night that my computer was set to do a weekly upload of Microsoft, anti-virus and anti-spyware updates. Also, that night we had some electrical storms. The menu pops up in the bottom right corner at very erratic intervals and sometimes just flashes, while other times stays on for minutes. It is driving me crazy!
I have tried updating the monitor driver and the video card using the "Device Manager" icon found in the "Control Panel". No luck. I have also ran anti-virus and anti-spyware scans and also used AVG to scan and fix registry errors. No luck.
I am open to suggestions.

Monitor goes black after a few seconds of being turned on. what can i do?

Dell monitors have a power button in the bottom right corner. Be sure this light is green, and not yellow or off. If it is yellow, your PC is not on. If you are sure it is, shake your mouse to see if it lights up. If not, make sure it is plugged in in the back of your PC.

Cant turn monitor back on

broken power switch... .. the "friend" broke the power switch by pressing too hard or as luck had it the switch is broken..

recommend leaving the monitor unplugged for 4 hours

open the case of the monitor up and pull the small circuit board for the "buttons" out and get a replacement board... google the part number exactly as spelled out on the little button board

Monitor flashes on then goes black.

I think you have the display shut off. the button on the bottom left will shut screen off. It will come on for a few seconds if you touch the screen, but will shut off again. just push the display button again and it should stay on.

Possible monitor or graphics card malfunction

The monitor is bad. The flashing is telling you that something inside the monitor has gone out. If it is still under warranty they should either fix your monitor or give you a replacement. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

Mag Innovision LT776s 17 in. Flat Panel LCD

I have the same problem except it usually happens after Ive left my computer idle for a while... i.e . Overnight, I usually turn off the monitor and I hit the button after I come back to turn it on. I get the same flashing light for several minutes. This has been a problem for several months, but only recenly have i gotten the same error message you mentioned. Each time ive booted the computer up cold or restarted it has worked fine but this time it took longer along with displaying the message: Top Left to Right: SH770 P001 Bottom Left to Right: AU M170EN05 Anyone else who can clear this up?
