Good afternoon. I have an LCD . When I turn it


Sometimes LCD screens can flicker if kept in cold environments. Make sure that it's not too cold in the area of the LCD. Also, make sure the cable to the monitor is connected properly, as a loose cable can also cause the screen to flicker.

For the past week, when my Sceptre LCD monitor goes to sleep after inactivity, it won't restart immediately. The blue LED blinks every second or so; eventually, the screen begins to flash the display, and...


Hello there Jake.

Here's your geek-steer ...

== CLARIFICATION ==
  • When you say "sleep", are you certain it's sleep mode, as opposed to hibernate?
  • "...it won't restart immediately." ... you do mean of course AFTER you've given keyboard or mouse input, right?
  • "...the screen begins to flash the display" ... literally flash, as in strobe? Or do you just mean flash, as in "shows".
  • "...Sometimes the whole process takes five minutes, sometimes an hour." ... ???!!! If it takes anything longer than few/several moments, that's very abnormal, even if hibernate mode.
  • "...I can't find the documentation." ... not important, at least not at this point.
== SUGGESTIONS ==

A. RULE OUT THE SIMPLE FIRST.

1. Shutdown
2. Turn off PC and monitor
3. wait 5 minutes
4. unplug all cables/cords connected to monitor (both ends)
5. inspect/clean connect points
6. reconnect all cables/cords
7. plug monitor back in
8. startup system
9. try to duplicate problem

B. CPU HOG.

I'm curious to know what all your "Processes" are doing during this very delayed period of time. By knowing that, you can see which one(s) are running, and which of them are probably crunching hard at the CPU, which MAY explain the delay (I don't know about an hour, but minutes ... yes).

Do you have a "Processes" monitor utility of any kind? If not, get SysInternals' "Process Explorer" (no installation required, just unpack and launch). Make sure at least the "CPU History" item is included in the column header (View > Select Columns). Once launched, allow it to sleep.

Just as soon as able, after it comes out of sleep, review Process Explorer. What, if any, processes are hogging CPU? Post that back, and I suspect we may be a lot closer to a solution.

C. MONITOR FAILURE.

You might also hook up this monitor to a "known good" (functioning properly) PC with like "screen saver" and "power options" settings. If problem not encountered, you can at least isolate the problem to solely the monitor. However, if the only time you encounter problem with monitor is isolated to when coming out of sleep, this is likely a long-shot.

Good luck Jake, and please do post back ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback.
  • if you have any further questions,

Dell 2005FPW Monitor Flicker problem


The flickering is most likely the florescent backlight having a hard time starting, Just like in a light fixture, as it gets old, it takes longer to warm up to get full functionality.
If under warranty, contact Dell for a replacement, if not, then when it becomes untenable, replace the monitor. Prices are dropping drastically, an new 20 or 22 In can be bought for about $150 or less

Television keeps going off


There is a sleep monitor that sends the set to sleep after a designated time. It sounds like you may have inadvertently turned it on and set it for about 10 minutes.
You can view an online user's guide for this tv here: http://www.westinghousedigital.com./pdf/60_User_Manual.pdf if it's a model LCM22-w2 or
here: http://www.westinghousedigital.com./pdf/108_User_Manual.pdf if it's model LCM22-w3

Please pick one and use the instructions to guide you to the On Screen Display and adjust your sleep settings. (try pg 14)

I hope this leads you in the right direction.

If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Mag innovision LT716s monitor


When I turn on my computer the monitor takes a long time to warm up and colors change and vertical lines flash across the screen from right to left before the screen becomes normal again. Now the power light even goes out upon turning on my computer and I have to unplug the video cord and plug it back in to start the screen back up which even takes longer.

What do you mean by it takes awhile to come on? Sometimes with these monitors depending on the type you have it takes time for the PC to pick up the signal. I have my PC hooked up to a KVM switch and it takes about 10 to 20 seconds for my monitors signal to be recognized.

Screen not appearing straight away


It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems till it warms up. Turn you computer on and while the monitor is displaying black and the power LED is green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. A 15" LCD monitor is probably not an economically repairable problem unless you have access to really cheap parts and have the skills and tools to do the repair yourself.

Menu randomly pops up while pushing no buttons....


It sounds like an issue with the power button board and I would certainly make use of the warranty option.
