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?

Re: Monitor doesnt shut down

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

My HannsG 28" (HG281D) shuts off the screen intermittently, as if it were overheating and was self-protecting. Power light remains on and steady. I can turn it off and wait a few seconds, when I turn it on...

That happens when the ballast transformer for the backlight overheat. Backlight or cold cathode light function is responsible for the images that you see in the screen.
Unless you are capable of replacing by yourself the parts with the same value and you have the right tools and skill to do it your own.
Otherwise, I suggest you bring your monitor to a credible technician.. or if the unit is still under warranty you can bring that to their service center..

Monitor brighness shuts off

It sounds like the backlight circuits are not working, it can be due to bad power supply.
Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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:

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.

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.
