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

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.

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.

Sounds like there is a heat related problem. Probably a bad solder joint somewhere. Could be hard to track and would probably cost you more money to repair and it does to purchase a replacement monitor. 17" LCDs go for around $150 these days.

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 =)

Computer monitor wont stay on


LMAO it sounds like it is going into power-saving mode because there is (or it -thinks- there is) no signal. Has it always done this? Try punching up the controls when you turn it on and changing its behavior through those menus. Doublecheck the monitor's connection to the computer. Alternately, if it is connected and a display is coming up for those 10 seconds; perhaps just going into sleep mode, with the power LED changing appropriately; you can look up the exact model, and find schematics and previously solved instances of your case.
Even if you can't find those, you could read through some introductory electronic circuit books (and the internals of the monitor...unplug and read the books' safety bits first) and determine what went bad and how to replace that component.

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.
