Monitor Does not Work properly anymore

Thanks ahead of time for reading this. My monitor is less than a year old. I recently moved and had it shipped to my new address. The monitor worked before i moved without any problems of any kind.
However, when i got it here and finally got a chance to get it set up, the monitor itself will not turn on correctly. The monitor started to whir and click as if turning on and off. But now it will not even do that. The power cord works (i tested it with my tower, exchanging the two back and forth to check if it mattered but it did not seem to), but the monitor itself will do nothing.

My question basically is, is there anything that i can do myself to get this working. I cannot afford to purchase a new monitor and i cannot pay for repair fees. Please help me if you can.

Re: Monitor Does not Work properly anymore

The monitor was damage during shipment! On the monitor’s main circuit board, look for cracks, cold solder joints, especially around the big transformer (Flyback), Check the horizontal output transistor.

I have an L2410NM (24"vis,

I have this same monitor with the same exact issues. It is the control panel of the monitor starting to give out. The monitor will work better with some video cards than others, it has to do with the video signal coming from your 9800GT. For example if you switched to an ATI based card the problem may very well be less frequent, it was for me... but it most likely will never go away completely. However switching from an Nvidia to an ATI card made the problem go from happening daily (multiple times a day in my case) to more like once a week, sometimes less.

You probably have had the two working in conjunction for quite some time without issue, but I assure you that switch video cards does in fact help signficantly. Although you may find that just replacing the monitor, and selling this one on ebay or craigslist - listing it with the problem you know of but indicating that you have information that shows it should not have the same problem on someone elses computer, and then buying a new monitor would definitely fix the problem permanently. Of course you don't have to do that, but at least you would recoup some of the cost of a new monitor. You can get a new Viewsonic monitor, which is better in all regards for $199 shipped from this link, I've seen it for $400 in some retail stores:

And then you wouldn't have to worry about replacing the video card, which would only alleviate the issue, not completely rectify it. Then you'd also have a nice box for shipping your old monitor if you chose to sell it on ebay for example.

Thanks so much, let me know if you have more questions or concerns, just reply here.

When I boot up my computer, it takes my Acer monitor 20 minutes to show the desktop. It flashes the Acer logo, then goes black, then flashes again, and repeats till it finally comes on. Could it be a...

It's probally the inverter board that drives the backlight in your monitor is failing causing the digital board to reset. I think Acer has a 3 yr warranty. If the monitor is less than 3 years, I would call them and ask them to repair it. They will fix it for free if it less than 3 yrs old, it will only cost to you is shipping it to TX. Hope this helps.

My monitor stays on for 6 seconds


You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Monitor Samtron after 10min. looses contact with computer

This problem is caused by the Novatek chip on the video board. Soldering a 50 Ohm Resistor across pins 5 and 6 of this chip resolves the problem on both the Samtron and the Samsung monitors. I have just corrected one of these last night by this means.
Hope that helps

I have noticed recently that the screen words flicker.

If the monitor is less than a year only, then your best bet is contact the manufacturer for warranty support.

Green Flash power only on one computer

It sounds like the monitor functions properly and your computer functions properly, but the combination causes a problem. Try making sure the screen resolution on your main computer is set to an acceptable resolution for your monitor - AL1916. Try setting it low to 800x600 and move up from there until it doesn't work anymore. You can change the screen resolution from the Display Settings (right click on the desktop and select Display Settings) window.
