Question about NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi LCD Monitor

NEC MutliSync LCD2690wuxi screen stays black, won't come on

I was going through the advanced OSM menu on the NEC MutliSync LCD2690wuxi, and clicked on something, I have no memory of what menu item it was (I was still confused from trying the advanced calibration) the screen went black, and that was that. Nothing I've done since - unplugging both it and the Mac G5, restarting the Mac (even though I couldn't see to navigate the mouse to restart and had to use the power-button to power-off), has helped solve it. It just will not light up. The limited OSM I get by pressing Input/Select or Exit just gives me IPM, DVI Selection, or HDCP, so I selected IPM Standard, Digital under DVI Selection, but it just won't come on. The LED glows blue, everything is as it should be, just no screen image. When I start up the Mac it does come on, but only between the grey Apple and the Log-in box, then it goes black again. Please help! Many thanks, Jonathan Tyler

My lcd display has just a black screen

If there is no nec logo, the problem is in the power supply/inverter board, one or two capacitors open leaving a small dome shape at the top, "most common" but if power comes on the problem is "inverter transformer or backlight issue"

Color calibration

All monitors have a brightness control. Click the menu button and from the on screen menu choose the brightness and set it to your liking. There should also be a contrast control and may or may not be a backlight control. All the user controlled setting are in the OSM.

How do I fix my screen from being blurry? I have an AccuSync LCD 72vw with AT&T services.

Hello: Try the following:

Signal cable should be completely attached to the computer.
Use the OSM Image Adjust controls to focus and adjust display by increasing or
decreasing the FINE control. When the display mode is changed, the OSM Image
Adjust settings may need to be readjusted.
Check the monitor and your display card with respect to compatibility
and recommended signal timings.
If your text is garbled, change the video mode to non-interlace and use 60Hz refresh rate.

Nec Multisync LCD 195VXM+ black screen after turning on computer

I'm thinking your video card is sending a signal the monitor doesn't recognize.
You'll need to start the computer and hit F8 until you get the black and white menu. Choose the VGA mode and it should work well enough for you to adjust the refresh rate or the resolution to get the monitor to work

Blinking lights when PC is s.down

Not sure what happened as I had a whole message typed and lost it. Here I go again. I hope it doesn't post twice.

We have an Acer AL1715 monitor which started having this problem after a power surge. It was the only piece of equipment affected by the surge. I searched for an answer when it happened but got nowhere. I contacted Acer about this and they told me I would have to bring it to a tech to be looked at. Decided on a whim today to try Googling again and found this website and Q&As.

Though we didn't know what "Brunin" was nor saw an "F" change color, we did get into the Menu on the monitor and used the right and left arrows to see what was there. We decided to use "Reset" by highlighting it and pressing the "Menu" button for "Enter".

This appears to have solved the problem for us. The monitor is no longer toggling colored screens when idle nor when the computer is off.

Thank you for solving our problem. It has been very annoying for the user and anyone sitting across from her monitor during a meeting.
