Question about Apple Cinema HD 30" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor doesnt shut down

Whenever we shut down we find there is a kind of backlight that remains on. Only way to get it off is to unplug. Monitor just changed because of it and the new one does the same. First one worked for a few months before doing this. Any ideas?

I doubt its the monitor, it maybe your apple computer or graphics card. Can you offer more detail, or describe the actual shut down procedure?

I have a hpw1907 monitor. It seems to get hot in the upper left corner. It shuts down until it cools and I can turn it back on.

whenever there is a hot surface after the monitor was on for hours, kindly report it immediately to HP becuase they need to repair the system board of it.

My monitor's backlight flickers whenever switched on....please help me.

You need to do two things. First, switch out your monitor input cord (the blue one) and get a new one. If you don't have a new one, then unplug both ends and make sure none of the pins are bent or broken. Then plug and screw in completly. If that doesnt work, google your monitors name and drivers, and redownload the drive for it. It should take you through a repair proccess which should fix it

The power button on my HP monitor keeps getting a message saying "Power button lockout" and the monitor will not turn off whenever i push the power button it just goes to sleep and i have to unplug it and...

Hold down the power button on your monitor, with the power on, for approx. 25-30 seconds and the monitor will shut down for good. When you will start it again, wait at least an hour, the message will be gone and the monitor will work as intended.

AOC F22 lcd 22" monitor locked menu button and power button are the same plus when u shut down it doesnt want to come right on

Hold down the power button to turn it off, then hit the power button and immediately hold down the left side of the ring. Wait for the OK to disappear.
Took me a couple tries, but it works.

No display

Try Unplugging the monitor and plugging back in again,,,you dont have to shut the PC down to do this,,,if it starts backup,,,then good... if it doesnt,,then you need another Monitor.
An LCD monitor is better for your eyes anyway.
