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.

    I am also having the same problem. It goes black after a mil-second of turning on and off, unplugging cables, etc. Mine is also not very old (under 1 year) and not sure what to do with it...didn't plan on going to buy another one already! My computer has been checked out and now have to use the laptop all the time, which doesn't help when I have ALL my homework on the PC with the monitor that doesn't work and my classes don't end for another 2 weeks. Very disappointed in this product...don't think I'll be buying another one anytime soon!

    YES, I have the same problem - monitor dims slightly, then goes black. Repeated off/on on the power button sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. My monitor is just over a year old. I don't mind telling my problem, but what's the solution?? I just hope it's the monitor and not my motherboard.

    I was logging into my bank account, hit return and the screen went black.  I shut down, and the screen came up for a few seconds and then would come on only after powering up and down for a split second.  Please help

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

You may have memory problems. Memory module(s) may be defective or not seated correctly in place. Check the memory modules first. It seems that you have already checked the RAM modules.
Connect the computer to a monitor and reboot to see if anything is displayed on external monitor.

( Dell xps m1530 laptop ) Monitor blank, powers up but screen won't come on.

It ISN'T the LCD screen. Since you diagnosed with an external VGA monitor, you now know the problem is the laptop.

(When you connect an external VGA monitor to a laptop, you are bypassing the Video Cable, and LCD screen. You are connected directly to the laptop )

The basic Windows files aren't being found. The boot files. This may mean a bad Harddrive.

Do you have the Restoration CD Disk? Laptop on insert it into the optical drive tray, close the tray.
When asked choose - Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

If a checkdisk is done, you have bad sectors on the harddrive.
There IS a special procedure in replacing a harddrive.

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.
