Question about Princeton Digital Arcadia AR2.7AV 29 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

1 Answer

Having a problem with my monitor

OK, this is my problem, the monitor had been working perfectly fine all the time no problems at all, but one day i left my pc on and the monitor went to stand by. the problem was when i brought it back from stand by, I could only see a line across the screen. i thought it could be the power so i unplugged the monitor, plugged it back on and the same thing happened. i thought it could've been the PC, so i tried another monitor, and the pc was fine. after looking at the line for a while and trying different things i realized that when i pressed buttons the line did change, which indicates the tv is receiving signal. one curious thing about it is that when i change source (by pressing the source button) i see three green lights on the left side of the line, which is where the name of the source would normally appear (hence source 1 or source 2). What it really looks like is, that someone messed with the vertical size of the TV and it was reduced so much that it only shows a little line across the TV. My monitor is a princeton arcadia 27 inch AR2.7av and i was wondering if you guys know of a way to reset the settings without actually being able to see anything... since the line is like 3 pixels tall it's pretty much impossible to tell what's being displayed...

Re: Having a problem with my monitor

9 times out of 10, the vertical output IC I501 ( TDA1675 )and resistor R574 (1 ohm, 1 watt) are bad...The resistor opens up because Vert. IC has gone bad. IC doesn't get 30 volts from the power supply, hence , no vertical sweep....

Monitor will not start

Most common failures in Dell E153/152/172/173 are blown fuse, shorted transistors in the inverter circuits.
Please look at my albums to get some ideas.

My monitor shut off and wont come back on

Do you have a yellow light on it?
Is this a monitor that has a power adapter to run it? If so, check the voltage coming to the monitor. If the voltage is low or there is no power, then you have found the problem.
If the voltage is correct and if you can get video by attaching a different monitor, then your monitor is bad.

2 monitors down in 2 days! Planned Obsolescence?

It could be a computer problem
The only way would be to test the computer on another monitor and the current monitors on another computer.
Then you will see which has failed.

I shut doen montor and it doesn't come back on

When you try to turn it on do you get lights ? Do you hear any noise like a high pitched noise coming from it ?

Make sure all the connections are secure ( I'm sure you have tried)
Try plugging it into another tower or on a laptop to see if the monitor is fine and the video card is not to blame.

No Display on my Samsung 204B monitor

If you know how to open it up and get to the power supply you will find three capacitors 2-820uf and 1-330 @ 25vdc 105o.they will have puffed up tops replace them. FYI the monitor has a 3 year warranty.

My monitor turns itself off

If it's only a few months old then send it back under warranty.
The fault you have is the inverter circuit.

Hope that helps. =)

Black out

Connect it to another PC, if you get the same result, the problem is the backlight, they go all of the time. I am constantly repairing these things in stores.
