Re: Bank screen now.

After I jumpered the picofuse, I noticed that the 2N7000 was running hot. I replaced it with a bs170, (exact replacement). Now the thing works like it's supposed to. After I replace the picofuse, I'll put it back together.

Re: Bank screen now.

Mine had a similar problem. Try shining a light on the display and seeif you can see (very very faintly) the BENQ logo when you turn it on.If you can, what you will probably need is this:

The description says that it is for Dell and HP monitors but I thinkthey use very similar components. In my case I only had to replace theBel 3a ms125v fuse and it's working perfectly now.

Sorry if you don't like eBay, but that was the only place that I could find those parts and the seller seems really helpful.

Backlight is torched, it happens without warning. These can be repaired, but finding the appropriate backlights, and trying to get this thing apart is a royal pain in the you know what! But your backlight has burned out! Sorry!

Yes. Flashing LED with no image on the screen is the first sign of the power supply gets overloaded. That may be caused by blown/shorted electrolytic capacitors. Open the monitor, take metal lid off and observe for those caps which are rounded on top. Replace them with proper ones.

Westinghouse LCM-22W2 has "ghosting"

Usually, LCD monitor ghosting appears when the cable isn't tight, the cable is faulty, or low quality. The cable should be less than 8-10 feet long. Try using a different monitor cable (they're mostly interchangable) and see if the problem goes away. I'd put my money on the cable or a loose cable connection.

Message that the Samsung Natural Color Pro 1.0 ICM is defective

I receive the same error. If I use the profile colors are off (not just a little). Other fora have posted to uninstall the driver and use a generic monitor. This allows Photoshop do its thing properly.

Blinking lights when PC is s.down

Not sure what happened as I had a whole message typed and lost it. Here I go again. I hope it doesn't post twice.

We have an Acer AL1715 monitor which started having this problem after a power surge. It was the only piece of equipment affected by the surge. I searched for an answer when it happened but got nowhere. I contacted Acer about this and they told me I would have to bring it to a tech to be looked at. Decided on a whim today to try Googling again and found this website and Q&As.

Though we didn't know what "Brunin" was nor saw an "F" change color, we did get into the Menu on the monitor and used the right and left arrows to see what was there. We decided to use "Reset" by highlighting it and pressing the "Menu" button for "Enter".

This appears to have solved the problem for us. The monitor is no longer toggling colored screens when idle nor when the computer is off.

Thank you for solving our problem. It has been very annoying for the user and anyone sitting across from her monitor during a meeting.

Dell P1110

Hi, The part where you see some color bars and blinking green led is what we call MONITOR SELF TEST. A diagnostic pattern consisting of four colors (red, green, blue and white) appears, and the LED flashes slowly. this happens when signal cable from the monitor is disconnected from the tower and leaving the power chord for the monitor plugged in. If the monitor works properly on a different computer. then its a problem with the computer's video card sending out signal. im 85% sure that its a problem with your video card.
