Question about Sampo Computers & Internet

My monitor Goes blank after about 2 seconds

I have SAMPO monitors part number LME-1722 that have a BNC input that I'm useing for security. They are about a year old and now they are starting to go bad. What they do is when I power them up they display an image for about 2 seconds and then go blank. Is there a repair for this problem that I could try? Note the problem is the same on all inputs.

Thanks Dave

Dave, You failed to state if these monitors are LCD/FPD or are they old tube type? I'm going to assume that they are of the flat screen lcd type. all monitors of the lcd type need what is called 'backlighting' to display the video information. In your case, maybe the inverter power supply board has detected a fault and go's into immediate shutdown mode. the inverter supply is what lights the long slim cold cathode fluorescent tubes (2) that are used for lcd backllighting in 98% of all small screen lcd monitors. There isn't a lot you can do about these types of failures. You can check with Sampo and see if they have a swapout program where you send old monitor plus some cash and they send you a refurbished ( new tubes+inverter board ) monitor. I myself kinda lucked out when a co-worker brought in his Dell lcd. we opened it up and found some bad capacitors that couldn't take the heat generated inside the case. Yes we unsoldered and replaced them with new and it worked. But that was pure luck. could have been a lot of other things wrong too. you might want to surf around and check out or other sites that deal with monitor CCF tubes and inverter repair. the lighting technology you are dealing with is similar to the new 'curlie-que' energy saving-screw-in light bulbs! Hope this helps you out some. I'm lmistyrel @ aol or louie12fix on fixya.

I have a Sampo PME42x9 monitor that I am trying to get to work with my laptop. I set the input to RGB and hook it to the laptop and then use the Fn key with F8 and nothing happens. On the monitor it says...

The problem of course is not the computer since you communicate well when using the Samsung TV. The problem is your Sampo. The Video Ports are:
Composite Input (Shared w/ S-Video) RCA-pin x 2 S-Video Input (Shared w/ Composite) Mini DIN 4-pin x 2 Component Video Input RCA-pin x 2 Sets (Y/CB/CR, Y/PB/PR auto detect) DVI Input (with HDCP) DVI-D 24 pin x 1 RGB Input D-Sub 15-pin x 1
If the RGB WILL NOT COMMUNICATE, I suggest you try RCA/DVI/ or shared composite. You may need adapters, but with so many options, just try other methods.

Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.
