Question about Proview PL713S 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Beware this monitor! PL713s

This monitor just bit the dust on us! We just bought it a year and a half ago, and we started experiencing a flashing screen, lines looking like bar codes, etc. Then the monitor completely lost power. Stupid us, we didn't get the extended warranty. We called Proview customer service and were told it was our video card, but that was not correct. Bottom line, I don't think problems with these monitors are fixable. The only solution we found was to go buy a new one:(

Re: Beware this monitor! PL713s

Probably a good solution. 17" LCD's are pretty inexpensive these days and probably cost as much to diagnose and fix this one. You can purchase on-line as well. Good luck

I bought a SyncMaster 2333 monitor 1 and half year ago. Suddenly, my monitor does not show anything. Turn on/off switch is not working. Sometimes it shows just bluescreen. I am wondering what is wrong and...


This problem usually indicates a failure of the power supply board that runs the video control board. You can fix it but if your unit is only 1.5 years old then its still under warranty, 3 years parts and labor. Go to and go to the service section to start a warranty claim. It takes about 2 weeks to go out and back to you.

I had the same exact problem.

First power up the computer then press F8 key then if you see safe mode and other menu then enter in enable vga mode then go to control panel and change screen resolution to 1024*768.

If you can;t see safe mode and other menu.
Then open the cpu cabinet then refix RAM memory .
clean dust from circuit and RAM.
Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 15 minutes so all bios settings are defaults.
Then check.

Screen flashes "on" and then goes black on start up...

This is usually a bad capacitor problem. They would need to be replaced, or get a new monitor. Some shops will work on them, but you have to weigh the cost vs buying a new monitor for almost the same price.

There are some websites on repairing your own, but you need to know a bit about soldering and such.

Same thing is happening with my emchine as well. Mine is a T6412 series machine. I boought this machine a year and a half ago. Suddenly one morning the monitor started flickering. At first I thought may be some problem with the cables. I tried with different cables. Same problem. then I thought maybe my monitor has gone bad. So I went and bought a new Samsung monitor. Even with this new monitor the problem remained. So, I am assumng now that the problem is with my computer and not the monitor. Can someone please help. I do not usually come to this site. Can you please email me your solutions and help directly to Thank you so much for your help.
