Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

We just received our I-Inc if281 28" monitor and trying to get it working. We have hooked up the VGA cable to the computer and the audio cable and the power cord. Put the CD in the PC and after we selected English as the language it gave us the option to download the driver for the monitor, but when we click on it nothing happens. We tried downloading the Acrobat 8 but it says we have a better one on our PC. When we try and open up the Manual to check to see what is going on it says we have an invalid input. I have double checked and double checked the cords they are correct. What do I do now?

SOURCE: won't turn on

My monitor died and wouldn't turn on. Found 3-4 of the electrolytic capacitors had bulging tops and a dead short across them. Removed the caps but the short remained. Found the mbr10100 to220 packaged dual diode rectifier had a short across one side. Replaced the capacitors with Pansonic 10,000 hour
units and the 10 amp mbr10100 with a mbr20150 20 amp rectifier which brought the monitor back to normal operation.

The clicking is a sure sign of a bad power supply. Go to our web site and check out the pictures of what blown capacitors look like, Now open the back of your monitor again and look at the power supply board. Check the capacitors, the tops should be flat if hey have any bulging at all then they will need to be replaced. If any are damaged then replace them all because the rest will soon pop too. Be sure to use high temp replacements that will be marked 105c. Do not use caps from Radio Shack they are only rated for general purpose not high frequency use. You can order the correct ones from several places on the internet or we can supply them for you. The values you will need to get are going to be marked on the sides of the ones coming out but will be like 220uf, 470uf 1000uf etc. and have a voltage rating. When you insert the new caps in the board be sure to have the polarity stripe going the same direction as the old one goes. If you have any more questions just let me know.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

Have you turned your power settings down so far that the monitor has no time to produce an image, before it shuts itself down?
That setting is usually on the same page or tab as the Screen Saver settings are. If you set your monitor to save power so much that it will turn itself off in a very short time, you will see this kind of behavior.
Try to get to that tab again, and give your monitor more time to be "awake" for you. Right-click on a blank area of the monitor, then choose properties, and Screen Saver, and go from there.
Also, ensure your cables are plugged into the right jack on the back of your computer. The monitor plug/jack is very similar to a serial jack, and you can ruin your monitor by getting these wrong.
Good luck!

I think ihave a audio on my monitor,so shoud it work


I see that you believe that you monitor has a built in speaker on it, if your monitor does have built in speakers on it then the only way to make the speaker get audio from the monitor is to have it hooked up on your computer using an HDMI cable connecting your monitor to the computer where audio and video will be rendered by the HDMI port providing Video and Audio to your monitor.

But if your monitor does not have HDMI on it or you computer does not have an HDMI port then that will be an issue, if your computer does not have an HDMI port then getting an expansion Video card that has one will make thing work for you and get you audio out of your monitor.

If you are only using VGA or a DVI cable connecting your computer to the monitor then audio will not come out as it should on the monitor.

I hope this will be informational and helpful to your concern.

have a nice day,

My hp monitor flashes no dvi imput signal

First, make sure the dvi cable is hooked properly to the computer and that the computer's VGA card's dvi output is set to work in the monitor's advance options.

Has this computer/monitor combinatioin ever worked before? Or did the message appear after successful operation of dvi to the monitor?

Perhaps, try to use a vga cable to the lcd monitor to see if that input works.

Good luck on this repair.

Fuzzzy noise then blank screen....

Sounds to me like the power board may be bad on that monitor, espeically since it made funny sounds and usually bad transformers will make those types of sounds.

Make sure you don't have any bent pins on the vga cable and also hook up the monitor directly to a wall outlet to be sure a surge protector isn't causing problems.

Now hook up the monitor and also make sure your computer is turning on and booting up cause if the computer is not running properly then that could cause no video as well.

If you still have no video, then go ahead and hook up a known working monitor to the computer, if you get video with this monitor but not the original then you know that the original monitor is bad. If the new monitor gives you the same symptoms then it could be a problem with the video card or motherboard issue if your not getting any video from the computer at all.

DVI input on monitor not working

Contacted viewsonic about this issue- they suggested- have both dvi and vga hooked up to same machine. start with poweroff on both. power on monitor, then power on computer. when you see display coming from the vga, power off pc, then disconnect vga cable, turn off power to monitor, disconnect power cord from monitor for 5 + seconds, reconnect power cord, power on monitor, then power on pc.
If this doesn't work to get the dvi working, (as happened to us) we returned our monitor for a replacement, since it was still under warranty.
