Norcent LM730 Lcd Monitor Problem

My monitor has suddenly been acting strange! When I turn the power on, I get the green power light however the screen (my desktop) flashes on for about a second, then goes black. If I look really close I can see images almost like functioning shadows of my destop I've tried replacing the 15 pin male cord, but to no avail. (my old cord has been tested on other machines and works fine) As well, I have tried switching ends, didn't work either. I cannot see the desktop long enough to adjust the menu on the monitor itself. Anyone else have this problem? Or is my monitor done? Any suggestions will help. Thanks.

    same exact issue. that is of course, after a couple good years of use. tried the same things, the only way i can get it to work is turn it on and off 50-100 times and eventually if not at all it will work.

    same problem here!! sometimes it will come on and most times rebooting does not work! would be nice to know if i have to replace the whole monitor or if it can be fixed inexpensively!!

    My LM730 has been running fine for over a year. Recently, however, when starting from a power "off" condition (cord unplugged). the monitor will light up briefly (way under a second) and then show some faint picture. If, after much bad language and rebooting, it does restart - then it works fine until another power down situation. I don't have a repair manual for the beast and have not yet attacked it with malice aforethought.

    I have the exact same thing happening. I can faintly see the menu and sometimes it has worked but I have been getting nothing for the past 24 hours.

Mine was doing the same had to keep turning it on and off to get it to work then it would not turn on at all green light flashed on and off on front of monitor. I unplugged monitor and green light on ac adapter kept pulsating on and off like a capacitor. I just replaced the ac adapter and am back in business with the monitor running good for tonight.
I guess these ac adapters go bad eventually.
Thanks From Tom

Hi gogetemgirl, Based on your description/post, I'm afraid that it's your LCD monitor, to be more exact the backlight of your display. Inside your LCD is a thin florescent lamp (CCF) that provides the background illumination. This is powered by an inverter circuitry also inside the monitor. Though I would think that it is still economically reasonable to repair it, you would have to be familiar with component level repair, possibly the use of a VOM and a soldering iron as well as hand tools to be able to do a do-it-yourself. Should you seek the services of a qualified service professional, then it should be a quick turnaround (depends of course the availability of the replacement part). Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards. PS. Since it partially work (albeit very quick only), it is also possible that there is only a cold solder somewhere inside the monitor. Still you have to open it up. Cheers.

When turned on - green power light comes on then screen momentarily flashes - very quick flashes every second or so.

Are you getting any video on the screen? I would make sure the power cord in the back of the monitor is securely seated. Make sure the video cable from the monitor to your desktop is screwed in tight as well.
Hope that helps

Flat screen monitor functioning strangely

Sounds like there maybe bad caps on the power board in the LCD. Try a different monitor on your computer and if the known working monitor comes on with the computer and behaves properly then you know its a problem with your original monitor. If the known working monitor acts strange as well then you know its a problem with the video card. Let me know what happens.

Base on the information given to me.

I think your computer is on sleeping mode.

first thing check if the video cable is not loose connecting the pc.

because what would happend, if it is loos it would turn on and off at times.

The other thing you can do.

right click on the desktop.
go to properties
go to screen saver
click on power

adjust the time you want your monitor to shut off.
