Question about X2Gen MG19MY 19" LCD Monitor
When I booted up my pc the monitor would come on for a few seconds then go black. I wouldhave to turn the monitor off then back on. Sometimes I would do this acouple times and it would stay on for good and other times I would gothrough this for a while before it would stay on. Now I can not get it to stay on at all. I just get a second of image then to black. My power light on themonitor stays green when it goes black. If it was the power supplywouldn't that light go out? I did notice yesterday while messing withit that I could see a dark faint image of what was on the screen likethe back light wouldn't stay on or something. I keep hearing about thecapacitors being replaced in these monitors. If this is a good fix Iwould like to know which ones and if they need to be larger or same. Icould use some good ideas with details.
X2GEN - MW19U, same problem as described in the other posts. A week ago after a reboot it did not turn on. Pressed the power button, it turned off. Pressed it again after about a minute, all was fine until this morning. Same as before except that this time it does not turn on at all. Checked the power supply with a meter, it is good. Disconnected the video cable, noticed that it would briefly turn on when reconnecting the cable. After 3 or 4 tries with the cable nothing, not even briefly. Checked the video card, it is good. Then connected it to 2nd a computer, it does not turn on. Retrieved the old CRT from garage, both computers work fine with it. I noticed that when it is connected with either computer there is a clicking sound from the right-center side of the back (looking at the back). Could be a relay switch. Unfortunately X2GEn is bankrupt( http://www.x2gen.com/ ), means no recourse, and maybe no parts. Unless it can be fixed for $50 to $75, a new one is the next best option. If any one has any success repairing please post cost and repair details if possible.

Seems like a cold solder problem but also could be a component. The office is colder now and I had this happen when the monitor had been off overnight.I bet if it happens again, I can take it into a toasty room and it will work. It will probably get worse and fail over time, then I will tear into it.

Try your monitor cable connections on both your pc and into your monitor.
Make sure they are TIGHT and level.
Also, it could be your video display card is faulty or your video display drivers are corrupt.
Try setting your desktop to a lower resolution, like 800x600 and see it that helps.

Fortunately or unfortunately I bought two of these monitors. One went completely dead except for the blue and red pilot lights. I took the monitor apart, stand and outside frame. Then it hit me to try the monitor with the power supply from the other X2gen. It works fine. Looks as if the bad power supply isn't putting out enough enough current to energize the relay or whatever is clicking.
