Monitor problem: screen goes black, then comes in scrambled

I've had an Aquaview 9LS View & View monitor for almost 4 years (I use Mac OS X 10.3.9). Since tonight (about 1.5 hours ago as I type this), my monitor has been going black (even though the screen is on), then the image comes back again, flickering. There's this weird small cranking noise coming from inside the monitor (which reminds me of a light bulb), and the signal looks scrambled, as if there's a loose cable, or a dim bulb, or something. I've checked all my connections (though I didn't unplug anything), and they all seem to be sturdy. If the screen goes completely black for more than 30 seconds, I just turn the monitor off, then back on, which solves the problem until it happens again (usually 30-60 minutes later). How long do these monitors usually last? Is it possible that I might need a replacement?

It sounds like this one needs component-level troubleshooting, probably in the power supply section. One or more backlights may be going out, too.

I have a new Garmin 410 and really struggle to get it do download via the ANT agent.


Once the USB ANT Stick is connected it should automatically start downloading.
Make sure the Garmin Communicator Plugin is up to date for Mac OS.
You may also want to contact Garmin Support for assistance.

Hi I have a Aquaview 7GS monitor,it was in my moms shed & has gotten a bunch of dust,crud, dirt, inside it,threw the little vent holes. Is it safe to remove the cover & blow out all the junk...

Hello, thanks for your visit,

Many people could remove that over without any harm done. You would not touch any of the components with your hands though. Generally anyone with a screw driver and mind for safety could do what your trying to do. We just caution you tho because there may still be plenty of voltage in that monitor that could cause injury or even death.

Most screws in those are Phillip head drivers witch would be easy to pop off the lid.

Just a hint tho, do not use a air compressor to do such task, use a can of compressed air and do not point the can down because the fluid in the can will escape and could damage the monitor. So point the can upright.

You should be okay as long as you do not touch with your hands any of the components inside.

Good Luck, I hope this was helpful to you.

Best regards

I have A VNV Aquaview 17xp monitor,when I turned it on the power button lit up orange,the screen is black,is the transformer bad,can I buy parts to fix this,or do I need to throw it in the trash. and now...

Take a look inside and also read about bad caps.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Monitor Samtron after 10min. looses contact with computer

This problem is caused by the Novatek chip on the video board. Soldering a 50 Ohm Resistor across pins 5 and 6 of this chip resolves the problem on both the Samtron and the Samsung monitors. I have just corrected one of these last night by this means.
Hope that helps
