Re: monitor problems

Assuming we're talking about a CRT and you have already turned up the contrast and brightness, then the following should help. Take off the rear cover, and look for the flyback transformer. It will have a single wire about 1/4" thick (and usually red) running to the top of the picture tube and will have a suction cup there. On the the bottom and on the side of the flyback, look for 2 or 3 knobs that have a place for a Phillips screwdriver in the middle of them. One of them will be marked "Screen". I recommend using a screwdriver-it's more precise than using your fingers to turn this up (to the right) to increase the brightness, but beware: turn it just a little bit at a time. Going too far may burn out critical circuitry. It is safe to do this with the cover off and power on as long as you're using an plastic handled screwdriver and keeping your hands away from anything else. There's about 50,000 volts in the wire to the top of the tube, so there's no point in taking chances. Good luck!!

Monitor color fades in and out

If you can try hooking it to another computer, if the problem persists then it's probably the monitor. If it works correctly then a new video card may be in order.

Have a Acer x223w monitor and it fades to white and then fade to black. I looked at the caps and nothing look blown on both boards. When I turn on the monitor the acer pops up and no signal look fine. But...

Have you verified that the problem is indeed your monitor and not the video card on your PC? i would start by connecting the monitor to a laptop or another PC to verify that the same issue occurs no matter what the source. Once you've verified that, you're likely dealing with a monitor that requires repair or replacement. Hopefully it's under warranty. Hope this helps a bit.

In my years of working on LCD's, your inverter (basically like a ballast in a flourscent lamp) is bad/going out. Crack open the case and look for a big pink and white wire going to a pcb (usually located under a shield) and remove it and check for puffed capacitors. If there are some change them and that usually fixes the problem. If there are no signs of anything wrong on the inverter, get the numbers off the pcb and google or ebay the numbers, usually youll find a replacement realitively fast.

Fading monitor

This is most probably cause by one or more Faulty Electrolytic Capacitors, I find these are the MOST commonest form of "Fault" in these LCD's TFT's units. I ususally simply replace "On Spec" all High Value Electros, in fact ALL Electro's are suspect and often I just "Shotgun" and replace 'em all. Usually fixes all problems. Always use High Temperature Caps, Good luck.
