Question about LG Studioworks 900B 19" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor goes black with a white horizontal line across the middle of the screen

Sometimes when working on my computer, my monitor suddenly goes black and theres a white horizontal line across the middle of the screen. This happens for about 1-2 seconds then goes away. I haven't noticed a pattern (i.e happening when certain programs are open), it just happens at random times. Is there something I'm missing? I believe it could be the monitor drivers, since the drivers for the 900b are not installed and its running on the default windows xp driver. I tried to install it, but it wouldn't find the driver file in the folder i specified, so no luck there either. If anyone has a solution to this, it would be greatly appreciated. Ric

Re: Monitor goes black with a white horizontal line...

Check to see that the monitor cable is correctly installed. Also, make sure you have the most up-to-date drivers installed for your graphics adaptor card(both ATI and Nvidia carry catch-all driver programs to keep you up to date.) Tighten the cable screws of course, to make sure the monitor cable isnt just wiggling in its seating.

Monitor works ok then suddenly loose picture(black screen) turn monitor off then turn it back on works for approx 5 secs then goes back to black screen

there are many reason why a monitor suddenly turned off then back to work again , over use may over heat that cause the soled parts on the printed board of your CRT go loosen , try to re sold it, sometimes your PC might stop viewing so the monitor automatically shot off stby mode , loose connection due to basted parts , capacitors,power regulators,resistors , even the cables also might be.

White horizontal lines flicker and screen goes off.

check the wiring inside the monitor, pull the sceen out and move the wires with the screen on so you can see when it's working. then tape the wires where it works.

Thin line across computer screen

Your Display cable (inside your monitor) needs to be replaced.

I would look on ebay to try and find the part and then take it to a local tech to replace it for you as I would not recommend anyone take apart a monitor (LCD OR CRT) if you had never done so before.

OR, Buy a new monitor.

Disconnect the monitor from the computer and turn the monitor on

Yes. There is no vertical deflection. The circuit that controls vertical deflection is bad. This is an easy fix for a TV tech. Take it to the TV repair shop.

Philips monitor problem

Check that the pc to monitor vga lead is not loose at both ends, check your graphics drivers are upto date, although it could well be a monitor fault and replacment required, as don't think they are worth reparing these days
