SOURCE: work normaly and in any moment it turn off

Hola Guate ;] display cable is probily loose. Seen this problem on another model. Don't know if it's the same for the V3, but you have to make sure the screen cables are well connected. this is how it goes with a different model: Open the back of your phone, and near the top right side is a cable that leads to the screen. Make sure it is fully in. If this doesn't work, open the face of the phone, carefully remove the metal peice that is on top, there are small white latches on the side. After that you should just see the red-brown cables of the screen. To the top right corner there should be a cable that looks alot like the one in the back. Make sure that is all the way in. Good luck, tell us how it went in there...

SOURCE: Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

Well my Acer AL1711 finally gave up in as much as the screen flashed briefly at switch-on then went blank, regardless of brilliance setting so I decided to take it apart and try to fix it. The good news is that IT WAS NOT THE LAMPS that I feared in my earlier post and was easier than I had ever dreamed! First allow a good period of time for the internal components to discharge before starting. Remove the plastic clip at the base hinge to expose 4 screws - remove all four to release the stand. Then remove the 4 black cross head screws that appear to hold the back on, they do but there is more to do. Carefully tease the silver surround away from the case, best to start in the centre of each side and finish at the corners. There are many plastic clips to release before the surround comes away. Now remove the four cross head screws holding the pushbutton switch circuit board. The whole assembly can now be removed from the case and reveal a metal cover held by 2 SHORT (remember that!) SHORT! threaded machine screws. These once removed will allow the case to be slid away from the holding tabs located down the edges of the cover and removed. Now unplug the connectors from the board that has the mains input connector attached to it. You will see a heatsink with 4 electrolytic caps above it. Silly ACER designers, have placed the capacitors so that they get all the heat from the heatsink! Yes folks, the capacitors are above the heatsink when the monitor is in its normal operating position! So all the convected heat dries them out, nice. So the fault is due to a silly design error! Replace all 4 capacitors, two of them are 1000uF at 16V and the other two are 470uF at 16V, all radial types. Try and get capacitors with the highest operating temperature, at least 105 degree types and remember these are polarised, make sure you connect the capacitor + wire to + on the circuit board. You should have no problems with re-assembly but don't put the wrong screw where the short ones went or you are liable to see it come out of the screen LOL! Most important - - Don't forget the screw holding the earth tag to chassis. Good Luck, you will be amazed how much brighter the screen is now!

SOURCE: problem in monitor

you need to either buy a new inverter board, or if you are competant with soldering onto boards, you need to replace the c5707 transisters at points q740, q739, q760 and q759 on the larger board. best place really for the replacement c5707s is ebay

SOURCE: Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

The green power light indicates that the monitor is receiving from the computer correctly. I suspect it is going into high voltage shutdown. There is a safety circuit that monitors the high voltage and shuts the monitor down if it sees anything amiss. So the monitor comes on and then shuts off. High voltage problems are generally not worth trying to repair. Another example of a worthless safety feature. High voltage failures are not dangerous, and adding the safety circuit just kills the unit when it may have some life left or worse, sometimes it is the shutdown circuit itself which fails!
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: When it's turned on, the light on my monitor blinks but the screen doesn't display anything. Why ....

they normally turn off like this when they aren't receiving a video signal from the pc (same as when you turn off the pc). make sure that it is connected properly, and that the video output is activated. try disconnecting from the other monitor while its on and connect the problem monitor...if it still isn't working then there may be a problem with the cable or the monitor itself. Try another VGA or DVI cable. Hope this helps

Black border around screen


Have you checked to see that you've set the correct resolution for your desktop?

The specifications say that the laptop's display can show 1024x768 pixels.

http://www.toshiba-europe.com/computers/products/notebooks/tecra9000/index.htm

Set it to that first. Anywhere below that resolution (for example 800x600) may be causing black borders on your screen.

Hope this helps!

If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

FD-235HF-7529


This drive supports Ready signal or Disk Change signal on pin 34 (RY34 or DC34), has a large number of jumpers for various settings, thus (unlike the standard 235HF drive which works in PCs only) this drive can used to replace a 720k drive on older computers such as Amstrad CPC/PCW or Commodore AMIGA.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


The power -inverter board probably needs an overhaul.
I redo many of these.
If the screen was pinkish or flickering before it finally got to this point, it is possible that a bulb has gone bad.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


I am not familiar with your particular model, but I do know what the problem is.
The inverter that runs the lights behind the screen is faulty and needs to be repaired. The lights shine from the top and bottom and reflect outwards through the panel so you can see what is on the screen. If you start the computer up, then shine a bright light into the panel you will see an image on the screen, but very feintly.
This can be cheap, it can also be expensive depending on where you go to get it repaired. Call aorund to a few TV shops in your area to get a rough idea on prices.

Hope that helps =)
