Question about Computers & Internet

I have an SVA LCD Model VR-17S Monitor that has a black screen

When the monitor powers up it acts like it wants to work, then it works for approx. 1 sec. then screen goes black, the power led stays on and the menu led goes out, if you unplug the power and put it back in the monitor comes up for a sec then does the same thing. I checked the capacitors and all look good, i changed power cord with same result, i checked power supply and it is putting out 12.4 volts dc, it is supposed to put out 12 v, do not see any cold solder joints or any obvious problems. Any suggestions?

Sounds like the Backlight balance sensor circuit is shutting down the inverter supply. A weak bulb can cause this or a malfunctioning sensor circuit can cause it too. Best method to troubleshoot is to substitute good bulbs; if it still shuts down, look for a pair of small electrolytic caps on the inverter board near the bulb sockets. They may be weak.

My screen is green I cant find the menu key on my sva monitor


You need to find menu button - it's got to be there somewhere. If you do find it, go to the "tools" menu (show a wrench and screwdriver), then select the "RECALL" option. Press then right and/or left arrow on that option. This fixed same problem on my SVA Monitor

Good Luck

Where can I download a user manual for my SVA 75S? I can't figure out how/what to use to connect to my tower so that my speakers in the monitor work. Thanks


Hi
You may have noticed two or one stereo jack like. It is similar to a headset jack.
Normally it is green in colour. If not it is black or it has a sign like the image below .
Plug it into your sound card the green channel into your cpu.

Normally you don't need a driver for a monitor, any screen resolution adjustments is done by the Control Panel - Display - Settings.

No display under 1024x768


I have the same problem with 800x600. I've found that by setting the refresh rate to 56 Hz, I can get the games to play. For instance Age-Of-Empires II only works with this method. My old monitor worked fine, and this works at 1280x1024.

I CANT GET MY MONITOR TO TURN ON


It could be the Monitor, the VGA adapter, or the PC itself. If you power on the monitor without anything connected to it, do you ever see anything on the display?

If not, it is probably the Monitor. If yes, it is likely the vga adapter and/or PC.

''Out of range'' message on an older SVA monitor


This usually means the display resolution settings on your PC are set too high for the monitor to display the signal. Try lowering the resolution on your PC.
