Question about Microtech Computer Monitors

1 Answer

No picture on monitor 997M

Last night for no apparent reason my monitor went black . The power light is ON but no picture . When i hold the power button down the monitor comes on for about 1 second , then turns totally black again .
I've un-plugged it and turned on and off my computer but the problem still exists . This monitor is not but 2 years old and i cannot think of any reason it would stop working . Pressing the other funtion buttons seems to have no effect on correcting the problem either . Please help me to figure out why the monitor went black and can i do anything (myself) to fix the problem . I've enjoyed the picture and dont wish to give up on this monitor .

One reason that this is happening could be that it is on Power saving mode. This happens when the LCD monitor detecs an incorrect timing then thats the time that the LCD goes blank and the power botton starts to blink.

what you need to do is to turn the computer off. Unplug cables attach to the LCD make sure it is also off, once done press the power botton for a couple of 30secs to a minute and then release. After doing so re-connect all the cables and make sure that both ends is tight and secure once everything is ok turn the computer on same with the monitor to check if it solves the problem.

Not able to turn it on. for no apparent reason the screen was black after setting overnight. The pilot light was on. tapped the space bar a couple of times thinking the computer would wake up and desk top...


I have the same monitor & just had same problem. Did you find a solution to your problem? This is the second time my monitor has done this. The first time I had problem i unplugged it and disconnected it from pc. Plugged it into power source and blue pilot light came on then went off. I did see the LG logo on screen before it shut down. After several times doing this and pressing the power switch repeatedly it seemed to reset and recognized it was not receiving a signal and indicated this. I then reconnected monitor to pc and all appeared to work fine for several days. Now I again have same problem after sitting over night.

The inverter is the most common item to fail on a LCd monitor. Capacitors usally fail the most. Are the tops of any of them popped up. If you had any shorted transistors the fuse would probably be blown. Usally labeled F1. I would replace all the capacitors first and go from there. Capacitors are cheap.

Hp vs15, black screen, power light goes on and off like it is in sleep mode


Monitor is dead. The LCD inverter board probably went out and needs replacing. More than likely, it will cost you over $100 to get it fixed. It's better to spend the money on a new monitor.
