Dropped lcd monitor

I just bought an lcd monitor on e-bay, (15 inch synco brand i think), while getting ready to put it on the desk, i knocked it onto the floor, power light lights to green and quickly changes to orange, i can very faintly make out that box that pops up concernoning menu or something, is there any hope of me fixing this?, could it be just a backlight? any help would be appreciated

Re: dropped lcd monitor

Recently the computer monitor started automatically showing the menu. I am not sure why this keeps happening. I have checked the menu button on the monitor to see if it was stuck and it seems to be fine. It just keeps coming back. Is the monitor getting ready to go out? Can it be fixed?

Re: dropped lcd monitor

Very often the problem is that when an LCD monitor is dropped, the ribbon cable and power cables which have very little slack become partially unconnected from the ports they plug into. Unplug the monitor, remove the back casing, and have a look to make sure the ribbon and power cables are seated properly. If in doubt, reseat them by hand.

Good luck...

17" flat screen upper half is dark until "thumped"!

The inverter board that controls the lighting on the screen is dying. since its a 5 year old monitor and only a 17 inch. the cost to repair is greater than the cost of buying a new one. unless you know how to replace the part yourself. I think its best to just buy a new monitor

usually on these monitors, there are some control functions, one of which is a "factory reset" which resets all the settings back to the original ...try the various menu options until you find it then press "select"
