I-INC CY199D lcd monitors will not turn on

I have 2 CY199D monitors. About a month ago unit 1 would not come on and the blue power lamp flashed from off then amber then blue in some sequence. Pressing the power button has not effect, won't go on or off. The screen is completely dark with no sign of life. I called for support but I-Inc , now called Hanspree (or something like that) said they though the board was probably defective and the part is 1/3 of the unit cost. It was 1 month out of guarantee. They said that there is nothing that can be done to reset the unit without the display up.
OK a bad unit. Today unit 2, which is less than 2 years old and also out of guarantee, did the same thing. I turned the monitor off because I have been away and when I turned the system on I forgot to turn on the monitor. The computer was up when I turned on the monitor but the display did not light up and now the power button no longer functions and the lamp does the same thing. I tried disconnecting the power for a while but to no avail.
I was not present when the first monitor quit but I suspect that the sequence was the same.
Anyone have any suggestions besides throwing the monitors away and staying away fron I-Inc? I experienced exactly the same thing 10 months after buying the monitor. Came back from being out of town, powered up my computer and the LED indicator changes from amber to blue and the screen is blank. Tried the monitor on several computers and all were the same result. Others who have experienced this indicate it is a firm ware update. If someone has the updated EEPROM there are EPROM burners out there that can copy the program to a new EEPROM. The company where I worked some years ago had one, they are pretty common.

    I have the same monitor and yesterday morning it was working fine. Turned the computer off and when I turned it on later in the day, the monitor remained black. I just hate throwing this stuff out but repairs often cost nearly the same as a new whatever.

    I had this when I first bought the two monitors. I sent one back for warranty repair and it came back. I have had them for about two years now and today one of the two crashed.

    I have the same monitor problem which is about 18 months old. I have two other different brand monitors and both are still in great working order after several years old. I took this I-Inc monitor apart and found the mainboard was out of order. It has no burnt out electronic components found and more likely is the EEPROM problem for the reason the power switch has no effect because it is controlled by the mainboard. I-inc refused to sell the mainboard separately. Can anyone tell me where to a new mainboard for this CY199DP or how to change that EEPROM.

    Between home and work I've bought five of these 19" I-Inc LCD's and now I've had three of them fail with this exact problem. Good deal or not, I will never buy anything from I-Inc again.

I have sucessfully repaired three I-Inc CY199D monitors which all had the same problem.
The monitors program is stored in a 24LC16B which is a 16K serial EEPROM in a SO8 package.
The bad part is you have to remove this eeprom to program it as it is write protected on the board and you will need a serial EEPROM programmer and an uncorupted program I have all the above.
If there is enough interest I could offer preprogrammed EEPROMS or a repair service for the graphics card..

    I solved the problem by just changing the eeprom from one 7 inch screen and it worked straight away.. so I think there is not data in the eeprom for the screen to switch on it rather saves all your settings to it.. so a fresh eeprom might work as well..I'll change to a new eeprom and test again

    regards

Bad power supply due to bad DC filter caps, failed backlight inverter board due to failed MOSFET, transformers, lamp assemblies. You need to troubleshoot it.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), 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: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Check for leaking/bulging caps in the power supply first.

To determine if the LCD screen is faulty ot the video card, connect an external monitor to the laptop's video port. Power up the external monitor first and the boot up the laptop. The video image should automatically switch to the external monitor. If you don't get flashes on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault lies with the LCD screen. Flashes coud be caused by a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. A fault is usually easier to diagnose when it is not intermitten.

I-INC CY199D lcd monitors will not turn on


The problem is the program for the graphics card is stored on a 16K serial eeprom which is used as a rom this can get corrupted which causes the problems you are experiancing.
I have repaired three of these monitors by re-flashing the eeprom with a program cloned from a working monitor all worked fine after refashing.
Now the bad news as the eeprom is used as a rom it is write protected on the board so the only way to program it is to remove it flash it with a valid program and then replace it easy if you are a surface mount expert.and have a serial eeprom programmer.
