Re: Fading monitor

This is most probably cause by one or more Faulty Electrolytic Capacitors, I find these are the MOST commonest form of "Fault" in these LCD's TFT's units. I ususally simply replace "On Spec" all High Value Electros, in fact ALL Electro's are suspect and often I just "Shotgun" and replace 'em all. Usually fixes all problems. Always use High Temperature Caps, Good luck.

Have a Acer x223w monitor and it fades to white and then fade to black. I looked at the caps and nothing look blown on both boards. When I turn on the monitor the acer pops up and no signal look fine. But...

Have you verified that the problem is indeed your monitor and not the video card on your PC? i would start by connecting the monitor to a laptop or another PC to verify that the same issue occurs no matter what the source. Once you've verified that, you're likely dealing with a monitor that requires repair or replacement. Hopefully it's under warranty. Hope this helps a bit.

Check the two insertion ends of the power cable and ensure that they are well fitted in. Check your area power voltage range and ensure that the monitor complies with specification.

Make sure you are using the right and GOOD power cable.

Lastly, Unplug from the monitor from the system and allow to cool for a good 3 hours or better still, disengage it from duty for 1 day and start using it the next day.

Do you have enough ventillation there?

Don't forget to rate me and get back to me if this helps. Tnx.

Monitor fades and turns blue

this sounds like a transistor issue concerning the ccfl lamps the power transistors are deteriorating and they will eventually go bad you can have them replaced and that should fix the issue. otherwise I would say have the capacitors that feed the ccfl's may be getting old and need replacement as well, its not something the average customer will want to do but if you have a service center that does electronic repair then that would be bst.
Hope this helps

Monitor problem - Dark colors, slow screen refresh

It sounds to me like the picture tube in the monitor is going out. I began to wonder if it was your video card until you mentioned that you used it with various computers. This tells me it's the monitor itself. Unfortunetly, I think your monitor may be due for retirement.

Screen keeps fading

I don't know for sure if this will help but it's worth a try. Go to Start, control pannel, system, advanced, performance, settings, and click adjust for best performance. This is a Windows XP fix but the same thing may apply to older OS's (95, 98, 2000, ME, NT (although you may have to set it a diferent way). Many other things could be your problem but this is an easy thing to try.
