LCD Monitor problems.....

A while ago I noticed my monitor wouldn't come on right when turning my computer on. Thinking it was just the cord I didnt pay much attention to it. However it started getting much worse.... I purchased a new cord thinking that would fix my issues. It Did not! When turning my computer on or even after it goes in sleep mode...my monitor shuts off...you can see a very dull faint screen (start up screen)... ut if I unplug and plug my montior many times it will flicker on ( complete brightness..normal) then flick off a couple times before completely staying on. I have had monitors dye before but this seems very weird to me. Is this a certain sign my lcd is dying??

Acer are great products, I have had lots and all worked well.
There are no user serviceable parts on these flat panel's..
Use your warranty if available. This is why buying the extended warranty on expensive electronics is a good policy.
Find a nearby electronics repair shop and get it checked over.

    It is much cheaper for me to purchase a new monitor as to use the Warrenty .... after shipping expensies I would be abe to purchase a much larger one. I can not say personily Acer is a great brand, I have not owned many Acer products but those I did have been complete utter garbage next to my Dell/HP things. Thank you for reponse.

SOURCE: Monitor goes to white at cpu shutdown

The problem is in the "soft switch" technology: On some of Sylvania's newer monitors they have incorporated what is called "soft switch" technology. This allows your ATX power supplied computer to turn your monitor on and off using it?s software controls. Therefore, your monitor?s light will always stay on blinking even when your computer is off. The monitor in normal operation consumes about 80W of power; in the "OFF" state it will be reduced below 8W. The "OFF" mode of the monitor can be controlled by the PC input signal or by pushing the soft-power button to disable the PC signal control for manually turning off the monitor screen. Thus, when the monitor is in soft-power "OFF" mode it still consumes a very small amount of power. For the purpose of making it noticeable to the user that the monitor is in soft-power "OFF" mode, we designed the power indicator to provide for a slow blinking signal (every 2 seconds). If you need to totally turn off the power, then the power cord would have to be unplugged. The same is true of the PC itself, but the PC does not provide for notification while in "OFF" mode. Your monitor looks like it may be in need of repair, contact info: PTI Technologies Inc. 7372 Doig Dr. Garden Grove, Ca 92841 Phone: 714-799-3899 Fax: 714-379-6290 Hours: Mon - Fri 8:00am to 6:00pm PST

SOURCE: the monitor just wouldn't turn on from the sleep mode.....

To amplify ~1 The basic computer motherboard has 'On board Graphics'- that is a graphics ability built into the system This is the 3x5 pin blue socket grouped with the USB PS2 and other sockets in a common panel under the Power Inlet. If the machine has an additional Graphics card this will be the same 3x5 socket duplicated here with a another socket. So try both. You could also check the BIOS settings Bios setting are achieved by pressing delete[ or another key - this will be shown which in the start screen] on the computer as soon as you switch on, where by a crude blue/yellow screen will come up. But you will need the hand book to hand to delve further, Rest assure I do not think it is a Monitor problem- but lack of signal from the computer.

SOURCE: Wont work with new computer

Since this was a new out of the box computer, Safe Mode was not allowed. In order to change monitor settings (resolution), I had to use another monitor, in this case a newer CRT. With the CRT, the computer booted up, no problem. Once booted, I turned down the monitor resolution and saved. Now when the Princeton LCD was plugged in and the computer restarted, everything works fine. Now the resolution could be set to limits of the monitor.

SOURCE: difficulty getting monitor to display when computer powers up

The Problem may be due to the defective inverter unit inside the monitor. Dry to resolder if any dry joint on the inverter PCB or replace the inverter board.

Hannspree 28" lcd only has


This is almost certainly a bad monitor and needs to be replaced, I wouldn't even troubleshoot it really. Basically half the screen matrix isn't getting any power most likely.
Some things you can troubleshoot if so inclined.
  • Hook the monitor to another computer (to rule out the current computer as a problem)
  • Replace the DVI cable (to rule out cable) although bad cables will typically cause color lose rather than part of the screen to be missing
Comment back if you need anything else.

You need your monitor repaired or replaced.
Unlike a computer, there is not much troubleshooting beyond making sure it is plugged into a live outlet and turned on which you did already.
Good luck!

Blinking blue power light and greenish tint....


Is the monitor still under warranty? (probably only the first 12 months)

Try connecting the monitor to a different desktop/notebook computer, to see if it is fine.
If it is, you have a problem with the video-card in your computer, not a problem with your monitor.

There are "capacitors" inside the monitor, that serve to supply "smooth" and "ripple-free" power to the electronic circuits. If you have "bad" capacitors, they are not doing what they should be doing, which causes the electronics to malfunction.

So, if your monitor is a CRT monitor, it's time to responsibly recycle it, and buy a new one.

If your monitor is an LCD monitor, take it to any TV/video repair shop, and pay them $25 to $50 to "inspect" it, looking for "bad caps". Or, spend that $25 to $50 to buy a new LCD monitor.

Strange delay.


I'm having the exact same strange delay problem as you.
I fixed my delay when I too took my machine to your girlfriends. LOL!

No seriously.... you solved your delay problem yourself when you UNPLUGGED the power cord from the back of the monitor.

My guess is that when you unplug the power cord, the monitor resets itself. It's only a temporary fix, but, IT WORKS.

1. Turn the monitor OFF
2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the monitor
3. Wait 10-15 seconds or so
4. Plug the power cord back in
5. Turn your monitor ON........DELAY ELIMINATED.

The delay returns eventually, but, I just unplug-n-replug and I'm good to go again.

173v flat lcd black screen


I've had a similar problem with my 173v monitor since I bought it a few years ago. When I start my computer, Mac or PC (I've connected it to both), the screen remains black and the green power light flickers once a second, almost like it's twitching - it's different from the blink it makes when the computer isn't turned on but the monitor is. Like kronem, I have to unplug the line from the monitor to the computer, wait for the monitor to register no input, and then plug the monitor in again before it displays anything. I've never figured out a way around the problem - I hate it!

Moving Horizontal Lines on LCD Computer Monitor (Windows XP2)


Hi,

It is possible that what you are seeing is 60 cycles AC hum, but then again it may not.

Perhaps you can try increasing your Screen Refresh Rate to any other setting other than 60 Hertz. (Display Properties/Settings/ Advanced/Monitor)

If that does not work, you may need to check your wirings and/or the power supply of the monitor with particular attention to the filter/power capacitor.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Monitor has no picture


Yes! :)

Your monitor is not the problem. Check all the connections from the back of the monitor, to the computer.

"No Signal Analog" means your monitor is working perfectly, however is not receiving signal from the computer.

Didnt find any loose cables?
Try unplugging everything. Leave it unplugged for at least 5 minutes. You need to give the system time to drain all the excess power.

Again your monitor is fine, blue light > No signal > orange light is totally normal for your montior.
