Hi Barry,
I too have the same problem. The dude that answered thinks it is a computer monitor - hence the stupid answer. Perhaps someone will give a better answer if they understand it is an intruder alarm monitor. Hope we get some answers.

Changed battery on simon 3 monitor but now phone line is down

If, as you say, you just changed the battery and had no phones right afterward it's likely that you accidentally loosened the phone jack inside the back of the panel(accessible when unit is opened to change the battery). Remove and then re-insert the phone-jack clip, usually on a wide flat cable, and carefully tuck/fold the wires in the hollow area so no pressure is on the phone jack & wire;recheck phones.

I have a va703b monitor that when turned on immediately displays NO SIGNAL then the green light turns to orange and the screen goes black. What's the problem?

That is usually a sign of a video problem, but first you should try to use your current monitor on another computer to see if it works there and/or try to use a different monitor on your computer. If your current monitor does not work on another computer and a different monitor DOES work on YOUR computer, then your monitor is broken and needs to be replaced (I will be utterly shocked if it's the monitor though).

Anyhow, going on the assumption that it's a video issue, Turn off the computer and unplug it from the wall and unplug the monitor from the computer. Now open up the computer tower. There are two things that you can try that won't require you to buy new hardware.

1.) Remove the video card (if you have one) and blow out all of the dust in the computer and off the video card. Look the video card over for any blown capacitors or any melted silicone (it will be obvious what you're looking for IF it's there). Put the video card back in, close the computer and plug it back into the wall and plug the monitor back into the computer and try to start the computer.

2.) You can remove the video card, blow all the dust out, and remove the CMOS battery (It looks like a shiny nickel that is sitting in your motherboard) for a minute or so. HOWEVER, if you do this, your BIOS will go back to it's default setup, which is fine if you never changed anything. Put the Video card back in, put the CMOS battery back in, close the computer, plug the computer back into the wall and the monitor back into the computer.
-------------- If you removed the CMOS battery AND you now have video, you're going to have to go into BIOS (setup) and change the date to the current date and time. (when your computer starts up, you'll see on the screen something like "PRESS DELETE TO ENTER SETUP" at that point press the delete key, or whatever key it says to press and you'll enter BIOS)

If you're still not having any luck, then your best bet is going to be to change out the video card with a compatible video card that you know is in working condition and if that works, then that means you will need to purchase a new video card because your current one is broken.

Monitor shuts down after 8 seconds

brian967, Well we know what happened after 8 seconds! Now tell me all about seconds 1, 2, 3, 4....7???? You could also tell me if the LCD panel is BLACK or BLACK and BLANK??? How old is the unit? Do you own a soldering pencil 25-40watt? Haven't you visited YOUTUBE to see video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly"/"LCD monitor repair" ??? How is your PC doing? Is it working perfectly when connected to a KNOWN GOOD monitor??? Will your LCD monitor (unknown model#) do same thing when connected to KNOWN GOOD pc? Do you know and understand the BLACK SCREEN flashlight test to evaluate "switch-mode-power-supply" status?? Do you have a digital camera for taking 2 to 3 inch "close-ups" of parts on circuit boards? Does this unit have a "lay on floor" black brick switch-mode-supply, or does unit plug directly into the power-strip or wall outlet(internal SMPS)??? Brian, do some reading in my FIXYA profile so that you will understand all of your options for repairing your unit.But more important is that I want you to know the ROOT CAUSE for your need to repair something that should not have failed in the first place. Get back with reply to this response, if you need assistance. Good luck on your repair. 12fixlouie

Need to know if monitor has a battery in it is a dell1706fpv monitor

myrickdavid5, LCD monitors are plugged into the wall outlet. They don't have a need for any batteries of any kind, not even the little "coin" style that are found on MOTHERBOARDS. MONITORS DON'T NEED BATTERIES. 12fixlouie

Follow the steps below to determine whether the problem is related to the AC adapter or your notebook system board:
  1. Remove the battery and disconnect all external devices from the computer.
  2. Hold the Power button for several seconds, with all power sources removed. This drains residual power from the system, and may correct many problems.
  3. Connect the AC adapter to a wall outlet and plug the other end into the computer.
  4. Press the Power button .
  5. Is the Power indicator light (LED) on or off?
****If notebook power indicator light (LED) is on, the AC adapter is working correctly***
If the power indicator LED is off, the AC power adapter may need to be replaced. To determine if the AC power adapter needs to be replaced follow the steps below:
  1. Ensure that the AC adapter is plugged directly into a known working wall outlet.
    NOTE: To check the wall outlet, plug in a different known working device like a light, radio etc.
  2. Check all of the following connections:
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the wall outlet.
    • The connection into the power adapter from the wall outlet.
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the notebook.
  3. Press the power button again to test the notebook PC.
  4. If the power indicator does not turn on, remove the AC power adapter from the notebook PC and re-insert the battery. Then press the power button. If the power indicator light still does not turn on, then the AC Adapter needs to be replaced.
*****Reseating the RAM may resolve this issue.****
Step 1 - Remove the battery
  1. Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.
  2. Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.
Step 2 - Remove the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Use your finger or a flat head screw driver to lift the inside edge of the memory module and remove it.
  4. Push both tabs outward simultaneously to release the memory module.
  5. Grasp the memory module by the edges and pull gently to remove it.
  6. After removing one module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
Step 3 - Replace the battery
  1. Insert the battery into the notebook.
  2. Push the battery into the base enclosure until you hear a click.
  3. Connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook.
fter the memory is reseated, connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook. If the notebook boots normally and the Windows desktop appears no further action is needed. If this problem re-occurs often, contact an HP Support Specialist to schedule a repair.
