Question about Sys Technology SYS 17-C-MT (Chrome) 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Won't Turn On

Monitor flashes on the desktop then turns black. Must turn off and on several times (up to 10 times) before it finally stays on. Have always been able to get it to turn on and it behaves properly after that. Afraid this is the beginning of a major problem. This flat screen has been trouble free since purchase about 4 years ago. Also, I can't seem to get to the Sys site. Surely there is one. The manual that came with it is all but worthless, save for basic instructions. Thanks for ANY advise you can send. VMM

Re: Won't Turn On

Possibly a capacitor on the internal board for the monitor that will not stay energized to allow the backlight for the monitor to illuminate. Going to need a qualified technician with the tools and equipment to diagnose it first hand. If you are not sentimentally attached to the unit, you can pick 17" monitors up pretty cheap these days.

Try the monitor on another computer, to check-out the monitor.

Does the POWER lamp on the monitor stay on when the monitor goes black? If so, then the monitor probably is OK.

Try a different monitor, to trouble-shoot the video-card.

I have exactly same problem

Sound like your display is having issues with the inverter board. When the power supply detects a short circuit, it turn off by itself. When you try several times, you may be able to "bypass" the circuit protection but the damaged parts still having problems. This issue may be related with the DELL display issues.

The display needs to be fixed by someone with experience in electronics repair.

My monitor will not turn on

disconnect the monitor cable from your computer tower
if you get a 4 colored box which says power on self test. it means its not the monitor then you have to get the video card or the systemboard.

Monitor going black

HP's are known for bad capacitors in the power supply.
Replacing them is simple if you know how..not so simple if you don't.
Try your local TV repair centre. It should not cost alot to have the capacitors replaced.

Hope it helps =)

Well the first and second paragraphs make me say the Inverter/power board must be replaced.

A white display typically means either your display cable (in your monitor) is loose or logic board is dead.

Either one of these things typically mean take it in for an estimate to repair, and if it's too much, buy a new one.
With your luck I think I might switch to big cheap CRT.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.

I start my computer and turn it on, and everything looks fine for about 1/4 of a second and then it goes black while leaving the power light green. I can only see the screen again after turning it off and on, but that's only for another 1/4 second. What's up?
I got my rosewill flatscreen as a hand me down from my father. I've had it for several years now. Was working fine until a month ago. When I turn the computer on the screen goes black after 1/4 of a saecond. I have to turn it off and on anywhere from 10 to 20 times before it stays on. I have checked all plugs to the computer and outlets. I have absolutely no idea whats causing this.

Monitor Black, Green Power Light Flashes Monitor is 4 yrs. old

Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
