H21 LCD Monitor -No display

The problem I'm having is the monitor is not displaying anymore, its just a blank screen. When I turn the monitor on the green light comes on briefly for like a second and then goes off . I have hooked up a different monitor and that works fine, so I know my pc is not the culprit. I do have the monitor apart and there are like 5 circuit boards inside.I don't know what needs to be replaced. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Re: H21 LCD Monitor -No display

I am having a similar problem. the backlights are coming on but with Windows loaded I just get a mostly bright screen with some faint colored streaks . But no image. I have looked at all the components and there are no bad Caps. The data interface looks the same as the one on my laptop. So I hooked the it up to my laptops data cable with the inverter being powered my it's own circuitry. But the back lights come on and there are not colored streaks.
I'm wandering if the lcd is bad or the electronics that run it.
Any suggestions.

Re: H21 LCD Monitor -No display

With that many boards, it probably has a separate ballast (inverter) to run the lamps. In the power supply section, I would look for bulging electrolytics and bad connections. In the ballast I would suspect a shorted output transistor, a bad output transformer, a bulging capacitor or bad connections.

I've got a Scanport H21 monitor that the green light comes on but has a black screen. Can not dring up a menu or "VGA IN" message.

You can try a different cable for VGA. Check if the port is lose. The green light is only indicating a proper power supply to the monitor. The display is very much dependent on the VGA cable. If your monitor also has HDMI port, you can try to connect using that cable (provided the display adaptor also has HDMI port). If nothing works for you, take it to a hardware engineer or local repair shop.

Hi Anand,

You need to check your power options settings and modify it , so that your monitor does not turn off automatically.

If you are using windows xp , go in control panel and then there would be an icon for power options , double click the power options and then you would find settings which read turn off monitor , turn off hard disk etc... select the turn off monitor to never mode or as per your convenience and you would have your problem solved.

Hope this helps.

Need power supply board for H21 LCD monitor

H-21 scan port Dark Screen, If you unplug the green light flashes 2 or 3 times ending any activity until completely unpluged and plugged in again. My other scan port works fine using 1st monitor cables. I've used both ports on the graphics card. It's definately the monitor power supply or other componant.

Any ideas?

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

The power -inverter board probably needs an overhaul.
I redo many of these.
If the screen was pinkish or flickering before it finally got to this point, it is possible that a bulb has gone bad.

LCD monitor goes blank

It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.

Try this.

Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)
