Makes squealing noice when turned on

My monitor is making a weird noise when I turn it on. I is kind of a squealing noise. It does it for about 4-5 minutes and then it stops and is fine until I turn it off and turn it back on again later. Other than that it seems to be working fine. Any ideas??

Hi, i have viewsonic 1940w. When i turn it on it makes buzzing sound and after 5-30 seconds it goes in stand by mode(orange light). Sometimes screen flickers to. If you turn off monitor and on again you...

I fixed this same Viewsonic problem by replacing the electrolytic caps on the power board and re-soldering the power transformer joints. The noise is coming from the transformer, if you torque it the noise stops. Cold solder joints must have been the cause (large posts did not heat up enough during construction). The bad joints might have caused a cap to overheat too, not sure but one was swollen and leaking and after replacing them the squealing was stronger and allowed a longer running time to locate the cold joint.

How do i turn off the high pitched frequency noise

If what we are talking about here an old model of monitor that has a bulky back, the high pitched frequency is caused by other electronic devices such as your speakers.

- Relocate your speakers away from the monitor
- do a factory reset on all settings on the monitor or if possible, do a degauss.

Samsung 2253bw lcd monitor makes loud, fast ticking noise > 10hz. Noise occurs even when monitor is powered off with switch.

Turned out ticking noise was harmonic vibration triggered by a nearby airconditioning compressor. Once I guessed the cause, putting a rubber pad under the monitor to dampen the vibrations eliminated the ticking. Removing the pad caused the ticking to reoccur. Ditto with turning the A/C off or on. Weird!

Try a different monitor or this monitor on a different computer. If it makes same noise on different machine or new monitor makes no noise on your machine you need a new one.

Problem when turning monitor off

mcdevito75 here LCD, or liquid Crystal display, chances are the crackling is the inside liquid display trying to capture the in comming electricity to make a display picture. Remember even an LCD is nothing more than a light bulb, a very intricate light bulb but a light bulb, and you have light bulbs burn out when you put them on and almost never as the are on burning. Turning the monitor itself off won"t really save electricity or the monitor itself as, when you shut down the computer from Start (left side of screen) the monitors screen saver comes on for 10--20 minutes then goes off, at this point the electricity is at the monitors on/off switch and not going thru the monitor at all. If you turn the monitor off at it"s on/off switch, the sudden jump of electricity to the monitor from it"s on/off switch could hurt it, or even the switch. I have a friend who turns off the monitor also and that friend had a bad monitor in 3 years. I never turn my monitor off just the computer itself. I'd speak with a Radio Shack, Staples, Best Buy ETC. for more advise. Me I;d say leave the monitor on. Hope this helps.
