In case of intensive white smoke, one electrolytic capacitor in the power supply is faulty (perforated). Do not use the monitor - must be repaired!

Switch it off as soon as possible and don't use it till you found what is smoking. Unless someone was blowing smoke as a joke, smouldering something inside won't take long till it burns or makes a shortage, what in turn can blow the power supply.
When you don't have the skills to repair electronic things, please ask a tech to see what is wrong, before it is defect complete.

Monitor will not stay powered up


It is possible that the monitor is going back into "Sleep mode" meaning it is not detecting a valid signal from whatever device it is plugged into. I would try replacing the cable that is connecting the monitor to the PC or Console. As a trouble shooting step try pulling up the "Menu" on the monitor itself by pressing the "Menu" button on the front panel of the monitor, if this does come up then we can say that the LCD itself is most likely working.

How do i get monitor output


You can switch to anexternal monitor by two methods.1. Connect the externalmonitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and thelaptop. The video information will automatically switch to the externalmonitor.2. If you power up thelaptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor bypressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make andmodel laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCDscreen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fnkey plus one of the function key. Here is a lkeycombinations for the laptops :-HP and Compaq = Fn + F4

I suspect that when you reattached the monitor back you might have moved the agp card out of her slot. Check if you have connected properly your monitor to the pc And if the agp is in it's slot properly attached. Hope it helps, good luck!!

Nothing on the screen after power on


Turn on the computer and complete the following steps: Step 1: Check cable connections (If you can see the initial HP or Compaq logo screen but later lose the picture, you can skip to Step 2.) check the video cable connection on the back of the computer and on the monitor. Make sure that it is connected properly and the connecting screws are tight. Turn the monitor off and then back on again (while the computer is on) to see if an image appears. Some Flat Panel monitors have two similar power input connections placed side-by-side on the back of the monitor, which sometimes allows them to get confused for one another. One connector is used to supply power to the speakers with a separate power cord, while the other connector is used for the monitor's power adapter. Ensure that you have the monitor's power adapter cord plugged into the power connector and not the speaker connector. After you have reconnected the power cord, turn on the monitor (while the computer is on) to see if an image appears. If there is still no image, continue to the next Step. Step 2: Resetting the monitor At first setup, or under certain signal conditions, the monitor may not be able to switch to a new display resolution. Do NOT shut down or restart the computer. Instead, perform the following steps: Turn off the monitor using the Power button on the front. If the Power button does not respond, unplug the power cord from the back of monitor and wait five seconds. Plug the power cord back in. You should see the image from the computer on the screen.
