Question about Computer Monitors

Monitor won't stay on

My Envision EN-5100 monitor suddenly goes to a black screen with amber light and won't wake up until I reboot the computer. Last night it did this several times, within 20 minutes of starting up each time. I checked the power settings and made sure they were at never power down, but that hasn't helped. My monitor and whole system are probably close to 4 years old, but other than some viruses sometimes, work good. Color and images look good when it is running, and we do no gaming on this computer.

    I've been having the same problem (I have a Dell E207EFP).. although it usualy takes a longer time for it to happen. Although I'm not sure I've solved it... I was just able to wake it up by turning the monitor off, unpluging the power cord to the monitor and unpluging the Input cable at both the computer end and the monitor end.. then reconecting everything and turning it back on. So far this is the only thing that has ever worked short of rebooting the computer.

Yep sounds like it's screen saver, when you have done the screen saver goto control panel look for power tab and have a look in there cancel what you don't use, change your power options, hope this helps, paul.

Your computer may be in screen saver mode, it has instructed the monitor to go to power saving mode, or the the monitor's video cable is not properly connected to the computer. Another possible cause of this is a locked-up or in-operative computer since the computer is what supplies the monitor with all the display data or information. Move the mouse or press a key to de-activate the screen saver or power saving mode. Check the monitor's video cable and make sure it is snugly connected to the computer. To see if the computer is operating properly, press the CAPS LOCK key on the keyboard repeatedly while checking the CAPS LOCK light. If the light is not turning ON & OFF, the computer is non-functional. Contact your computer manufacturer for help.

I have a Envision EN-7100e monitor. Downloaded


catamount309, This is only a guess, but unit may have internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter" board problem. When screen goes BLACK, is it also BLANK? If you can see WIN-desktop with aid of bright flashlight 1 inch from screen, then SMPS is in partial shutdown mode. If you see nothing, then SMPS is in full shutdown. In either case, Technician will need to repair the SMPS/CCFL inverter board. If KNOWN GOOD monitor works with PC, then you know 7100e is bad. Do you know and understand how the new energy efficient screw-in curlie-Q light bulbs work? If the "electronic ballast circuit" not working, then it can't light-up the CCFL tubes on the reverse side of LCD panel then you see black. Do more reading in my fixya profile for more options open to you. Do your research first!! Hey, reading is free!!!
Will you fix or trade for new? 12fixlouie
