My screen on hp 1907 went blank, my 13 yr old nephew started punching all the buttons on the monitor over and over and hitting the on and off button. Now I am having a problem with my screen going black...

I think it's pretty clear he messed something up. Try checking the VGA cable (the blue one) that's hooked up to both you computer and monitor. Check if any pins are bent or broken. If not, make sure they're securely plugged in and try booting up. If it still doesn't work, then I'm afraid he may have knocked some connection in the motherboard out of whack. I hope it's just a slight VGA problem. Hope this helps!

Try connecting the NEC to a different computer, to see if it correctly accepts 1280-by-1024.
If so, then there's nothing wrong with the monitor, and the fault lies with either the video-adapter in your computer, or something messed-up with your installed copy of Windows.
Try replacing the video-adapter.

I believe the power led button is still on while the screen goes black, if yes, it means the picture board of your monitor is bad that is why it appears for a second and goes black after that

Since the power led button is on, It means the picture board on your monitor is faulty that is why it appears for a second and goes black.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer or any service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself in other to complicate issues.

Take care.

Screen appears on for three seconds then goes black

Try the monitor on another computer that you know works, If it works on another computer then that means you have no video output on the original computer and you'll need to reseat the memory on that computer.

If you get the same response on another computer, then that means the monitor is bad and you'll need to replace it.

Black screen

• 2) REMOVE YOUR AC ADAPTOR CORD, that's the wall power, remove it.

That will drain any static electricity that has built up on your laptop system board and many times fixes the problem of a black screen. After the 30 seconds re-connect your laptop to the wall power and hit the power button normally and see if the laptop comes back up.

Replace your battery.

My monitor is stuck in a constant color loop...

What you are seeing is a test they use at the factory. Here are the instructions to reset the monitor:

1. Press the MENU button
2. Use the + and - buttons to choose Advanced Menu
3. Press the SELECT button
4. Select Factory Reset
5. Select Yes
6. Press MENU again to remove the onscreen menu

Hope that helps :)

Monitor Continually Goes Blank

You are right in assuming it to be the monitor.
It is the inverter circuit that powers the backlights inside the LCD.
No backllight, no view. If you shine a bright light into the screen you will see it is still working, just not visible.

The Viewsonic range of monitors have a habit after several years use developing bad capacitors that need to be replaced. It's something that happens to most LCD's and alot of other electronics.. so not a design flaw, just age.

If you have modest electrical knowledge then its an easy job, If not then take it to your local TV repairman and have them do it. It should not cost alot to have it done. The main expense in this case is the labour.
Call a few shops in the area and get rough quotes to have it done. You will be surprised how much the cost can vary for the same simple job.

Moniter Messing up

Is youyr monitor a "flat screen" i.e. LCD or is it a CRT. (Flat screens are about 2 - 3 inches thick (or deep), and CRT monitors are about 12 - 18" deep (front to back).

If it's a CRT chances are that there's plroblem with it, and it's shutting off BECAUSE of the problem. EITHER way there wouldn't be a setting to make the monitor shut off after 3 seconds... what would be the point?

Get back to me, but I think your monitor is the problem.

I have had the same problem. I've just managed to get the monitor working again by VERY QUICKLY navigating through the monitor setup menu to the 'factory reset' option and hitting reset before the screen had a chance to blink off.

The problem I had is that the monitor suddenly goes black, but will come on for five seconds if I switch it off and on with the power button.

In that five seconds, I had to...
>Hit the menu button
>then hit the '+; button once
>then hit the menu button again
>then hit the '-' button
>then hit the menu button one last time

The above brings up the menu, scrolls up off the top of the list to the last item on the list (Factory Reset), selects Factory Reset, selects 'All settings' and resets the monitor.

I don't know if this is a permanent fix, but it just worked for me and mine has been doing this intermittently for the last week.

Give it a try, it's frustrating and will take a few tries, but it can't hurt.
