Question about TRT MX174S 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Open Question

Will not come on

Makes a crackling sound in the speakers when plugged in, even when the speaker wire is unplugged from it.  Has a faint flashing in the screen like it wants to come on.  I unplugged everything from pc and left only monitor plugged in, same thing.

The little light by the power button does not come on.  For several months prior to this if you just barely touched the power button it would turn the monitor off or on.

One of our samson auro d412 monitors is making a loud noise when it is powered up....any idea what the problem is

A snapping, crackling or popping sound?

One of the big capacitors on the power board is going South.

Fixing/replacing it is cheap and easy, just Google for the instructions specific to this speaker.

There is a wealth of information for repairing this speaker online, just poke around the interwebs.

Creative A60 speakers plugged into PC, sound only coming from left speaker, they both work ok with mobile phone etc

Lower the volume a little then unplug the speakers and touch the blank parts from the plug. Listen it both speakers give a hum. If so, you have to look in the computer. First check settings like volume and balance, then check you did plug in correct and if it is still only left, perhaps you have to replace the sound card. (or plug one in)

Interference. Separate wiring in back, so there is no cross-talk of signals. If speakers are failing, go to walmart and buy a new set, <$20.00, hook up and sound is great.

I am getting no audio at all from computer. Green plug is plugged into green out plug at back of computer but I am still not getting any sound

Make sure that all of your software / drivers are up to date for your sound card. Make sure that your speaker power is plugged in (if it has external power). Also check to make sure that all of your audio sources are un-muted. ( Speaker on taskbar / control panel settings, as well as the sound settings from the program you are using.

Testing dc speakers

I have the same problem if I try and play with the power plugged in.
Unplug the power and switch on, it works ok.
You can then plug the power back in whilst it's still on.

Only get very faint sound out of my speakers, even though the sound bar in the lower right hand corner is at max

And what about volume adjustment in the monitor itself? Is it also adjusted to a higher level?

Samsung Sync Master 914 has no picture. When power supply is only in, green light flashes slowly. When both power and vga are in, green light flashes more quickly. I hear a faint clicking sound coming...

I would check the caps with ohm meter. Make sure they all show increasing resistance. Caps can be bad without looking bad. Check output voltage on the power board, should be around 12V. If all that checks out then I'd look next at the backlight bulb. I'v repaired many monitors and the problem was almost always overheated caps on the power board. Post back and let me know.

No sound..relocated computer, thought everything is hooked up.

Make sure the speaker wire to the computer is to the lime green plug on the computer and power to speakers and make sure volume control on the computer is not muted

The volume is too low on my computer speakers

Hi, Mark Here, see I can help.

The 1907 does not amplify your sound it will let you control the volume to some degree but not boost the incoming sound.

If you had amplified speakers b4 your sound card requires amplified speakers.

Best two options i can give is.
  1. If it is a desktop you can install a amplified sound card. Hook to monitor speaker.
  2. Unplug monitor speaker &use amplified speakers.
Just so you know laptops use internal amplified speakers. If you decide to install sound card make sure it is an amplified card.

Hope that fixed ya! know not the best news. Need more help comment back. Please Rate.
Good Luck!
