Question about Star Logic 17" LCD Monitor

4 Answers


When I turn on my computer and monitor in morning after it has been off for the night it won't show anything. It stays blank. When I turn it off and back on again fast it shows icons for a mil-second and goes black again. This happens for quite some time and eventually turning on and off right away it then popps on.
But then will go right on if I turn off computer and monitor and return to use it after 2 hours or so. Turn off for night and same not showing anything but a blank screen until I have turned off and on monitor repeatly.

Best solution ever, never turn it off. i leave mine on all the time and after a while it gets too hot i guess and turns black but is still on. i just turn off for a few minutes then turn back on.

I have the HD20W from Starlogic with the same problem. I actually have 2 of them, on 2 different computers, with the same video card in each computer. so this much I know for sure......IT'S THE MONITOR. If I swap the monitor for the good one, the good one works fine, stays on. It works on either computer. The bad monitor does the same exact thing on both computers with either set of power cords and DVI cable (or VGA, makes no difference.

Check your system unit to make sure the problem is not from the system unit

the signal stage and cable is more likely to have faults contact a local technician for confirmation

Monitor goes blank after 3 seconds -Samsung SyncMaster 920NW

Could be a power issue. If it doesn't show anything at all then that may be the case. It may also be the display itself. It would be a costly repair so you might be better off finding a new monitor.

Hp flat panel monitor comes on shows logon and then blank screen

Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on?
If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps.
If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

Dell 24'' Ultrasharp went blank

I suspect the invertor supplying power to the Xenon backlight tubes has failed.
This can be reapired but may not be cost effective.
Ask for a quote from your local computer specialist but keep in mind the cost of a new monitor.

My E172fp has a blank screen...when i unplug and plug it back in,the "dell dimension" or whatever that logo is comes on for a second, then the screen goes blank and stays that way.another monitor works...

i have the same issue before with my DELL 2001FP, I replace the 3 capacitor on the board that look like defective because the top is look like swolen, it should be flat. I replace it with the same value and now the it works better.

i hope this might help .

Blank screen

Similar monitor, similar problem. I actually had to dismantle the thing and replace a transistor on the mainboard.

If you're not into soldering and such, good luck.
