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?

Cant logon black screen

Do you see anything? No "ghost image"? A white cursor in the top left? Any damage ? Drop? Jarred? Bumped? May be backlighting, inverter, lose ribbon cable, bad graphic adapter. Can you attach a external monitor to verify the graphics adapter? Take a look at this video for ideas: Remove ALL media from DVD rom, usb, etc. shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot. Any change?

Black screen Laptop. Flickers once on start. External Monitor works

Look for your computer's monitor settings, then adjust its refresh rate.
To modify a refresh rate on Windows, right-click anywhere on the Windows desktop.
Select "Properties," then choose the "Display Properties" tab on the window that appears.

Click the "Settings" option, then select "Advanced" from the window that appears.
Choose the "Monitor" tab, which lets you access a drop-down menu with the options for refresh settings adjustments. As a basic guide, use a setting of at least 75 hertz.

Confirm the change by clicking "Apply." Reboot the PC to ensure the new settings on the screen take effect.
Check your screen if the blinking problem is resolved. If not, try a higher refresh setting. If there is no change on the flickering of the screen, this means the problem is not caused by the screen's refresh rate. If your computer is not running on a battery or surge protector, shut it down to safely transfer the plug to another outlet Hope this helps.

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

Hi, The problem with my Monitor is that after the

That LCD monitor uses a fluorescent backlight, and the symptom you are seeing probably means the backlight is failing. There are two possible problems:
1) Likely: The inverter board is failing. The inverter creates the high voltage needed to run the backlight and can shut down after a short time if the board is failing.
2) Less likely: The fluorescent tubes themselves are failing. This usually requires replacing the whole LCD screen, although experienced technicians can disassemble the LCD screen and change the bulbs. This is much riskier.
The best bet is to replace the whole monitor. If you are willing to take apart the monitor and try a repair, you may be able to get an inverter and fix the problem.
Sellers on eBay usually carry a lot of models of inverters and may be able to sell you one and guide you through a replacement. However, this is a moderately advanced repair.
Search for the HP exact model and "inverter" on eBay

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.
