Re: monitor shutoff

Hi, do you mean, when you power on the lcd monitor, then the display come for a while, then no display? May i know the power led light is still on or what's the led color lit? If the color of led still maintain the GREEN light, then you may have a inverter or lamp problem. If this is the problem you need to repair or change the inverter board or ccfl lamp. For more details, you can go to this site to get some repair idea.

LCD monitor turns off

I have had the same problem as others seem to have had with the dell flat panel. After leaving the screen on for some time, the monitor brightens for a moment, then goes black, while the green light stays on. When I reboot, it works again for some time, or if I remove the cable for a few minutes and plug it back in (with monitor turned off) it will come back on...only to repeat the black screen. I have changed the power features, screen resolution, downloaded updated drivers from dell, and viewed dells troubleshooting advice on the monitor cd that came with the computer. Nothing directly advises on this problem, but I have read here and in other online message boards the exact same problem. Anyone able to fix this?

Hi everyone , ive got a LG Flatron monitor model number W1934S the problem im having with it is i keep getting a black screen with the power light still on, but if i unplug the monitor lead and plug in...

Check out for bad caps in the power supply first.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed LG and other monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

When the computer is turned on the monitor goes off. Then when I unplug it and plug it back in it comes on and stays on until I turn the computer off and back on again.

My monitor goes black but I can faintly see the images on the screen. It was said here that it appeared to be capacitors. What can do?

Monitor Not Showing A Picture. Light flashes Yellow and Green.

use the onboard graphics instead of a seperate graphics card (if installed) to test the screen.if it still doesn't work then unplug your monitor from the mains supply and plug in again to reset it. i doubt it's your monitor that is the problem though. but look on the back of your pc for another connection for your screen. the onboard graphics connection is normally vertical near your ethernet port and mouse and keyboard inputs.

please rate me and give me a fixya! if it helped.

Either the power supply is going bad (power light will be orange or off when it goes dark) or the screen itself has the problem (inverter?). If the power button stays green but the screen goes dark, that'll be the problem.

When energized, screen stays on for about two seconds then blanks

Well, it's seems your monitor backlight inverter are bursted. Usually, the monitor had a 1 year for the screen panel and 3 years for parts and labors. You're still under warranty, send it back to manufacturer for repaired.

Dear tfollis

Have you checked the HZ that you are using the monitor in windows ? If set at a very high level (for example 100hz) it may damage the monitor as it is not supporting it. (and maybe this explains the reason for the shutoff as a means to protect the circuitry)

17 inch TFT/LCD Widescreens monitors are ussualy optimal at 1280x800@60Hz.

Right click on Desktop-->Properties-->Settings-->Advanced-->Monitor--> At this point check the Monitor Refresh Frequency.

Check this first and if this does not solve it then we can proceed to more serious hardware troubleshooting.
