Took my Sova to a repair shop and was told (after a $75 fee) that they could not get the parts, and if they could it would cost more than the TV was worth. What I need is a main board if you here of were it is available, Please let me know!

Monitor flickers and goes blank after 5 seconds and keep repeating this very often.


Hello,

If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

I have an hp pavilion dv5. When I power it on the computer starts up but the monitor doesn't come on. And then it does this series of beeps. Beep beep beep. It does that series 5 times


Before you begin
Check the following items before using the steps in this document:
•If you have a flat panel LCD monitor, unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor.
•Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet.
•If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad.
•Disconnect all connected devices except the mouse, keyboard and monitor. This includes thumb drives and camera-type memory cards from card reader slots.
With the devices disconnected, restart the computer. If the computer starts and the monitor now displays a picture, a device is preventing the computer from starting. Update the BIOS to resolve this issue.
Step 1: Connect the computer to another monitor
Connect another monitor to the computer to determine which device has the problem (the monitor or the computer). This step is very important to help you determine if the problem is coming from the computer or the monitor. If necessary, temporarily connect the computer to a friends monitor for troubleshooting purposes.
After the monitor is connected, turn on the computer and the monitor. What happens?
•If the newly attached monitor does not display anything , disconnect the cable and continue at Step 2: Is the video connection damaged?
•If the newly attached monitor displays the first startup screen(s) but then goes black, there is a problem with Windows starting. Skip to step 5 .
•If the new monitor works , the original monitor or its cables are faulty. Do the following:
1.Replace the monitor power cable.
1.Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
1.Replace the video cable.
Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
1.If the monitor does not work after replacing the cables, replace or service the monitor.
Step 2: Is the video connection damaged?
Inspect the video cable and video connectors for damage. Check for sharp bends or breaks in the cable and bent or broken pins at the connectors. With the monitor and computer off, try to straighten bent pins with a small metal tube, like the tip of an empty mechanical pencil or the tip of a retracted pen.
Figure 1: Video connector
If you had to straighten any pins, reconnect the monitor making sure that the video cable is firmly connected and then turn on the computer and monitor. If the display is still blank, continue to the next step.
Step 3: Resetting and updating the BIOS
You can use these steps even though you will not be able to see anything on the monitor.
In case an item was changed in the BIOS, such as the primary display device setting, use the following steps to reset the BIOS back to its default configuration:
1.Turn on the computer and repeatedly press one of the following keyboard keys. Press the key about once every second for 5 seconds after turning the computer on.
◦For HP and Compaq computers that came with Windows 7 and Vista, press F10 .
◦For HP and Compaq computers that came with Windows XP, press F1 .
◦For Compaq Presario desktop computers built prior to 2002, press F10 .
1.Wait another 5 seconds.
1.Press the F5 key. This restores the default settings of the BIOS.
1.Press the Enter key. This accepts the changes.
1.Press the F10 key. This saves the changes.
1.Press the Enter key. This saves the changes and exits from the BIOS.
1.The monitor should display the first screens received from the computer (the logo screens). If not, find and download the latest BIOS update if one is available for your computer.
1.If a BIOS update was not available or the monitor is still blank, continue to the next step.

There is a problem with the LCD Panel backlight - Check to see if your monitor is still covered under warranty and get it replaced under that....

Does anyone have a User Manual for an old Nashua


Probably because the instructions were wrong - to set the clock you first have to press the big blue button "A" on the face for 2 secs, the use a pen to depress the silver recessed button "D" on left side to get past the 12/24 display, then depress the "D" button (not the "A" button as the instructions said) to set the clock.
To set pulse, press "A" two secs. Press it again to bypass recall mode. Now enter upper bound: pressing "D" constantly/intermittently as it falls to desired level. Press A to store. Now enter lower bound: press "D" again til it rises to correct level. If you overshoot it just comes round again.
I'm entering this here for when I lose my instruction sheet too!
The "B" button top right is the stopwatch/reset/start/stop - press to clear.
The "C" button lower right is the nitelite, and not recommended you use it more than 30 sec total/day.

Monitor is blank/black


It is probably the inverter board inside the monitor.
(if the screen does properly display ever then it is not the screen)
It CAN be fixed but I do not suggest anyone open up a monitor (LCD or CRT)
who is not "technically inclined." If you really want to fix this
particular one then take it to a local tech and get an estimate first. If it's almost as much as a new monitor then buy a new one.
