Question about KDS Visual Sensations 190i 19" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor keeps shutting down

I upgraded my computer recently to windows XP, from windows 98, and ever since I did this, my monitor shuts off after a while and it is almost impossible to get it back on. I have changed the settings so the monitor is suppose to stay on all the time.

Clicking the on/off button numerous times eventually gets it back on but sometimes it takes 5 - 10 minutes. It is quite annoying.

Any suggestions.

SOURCE: The monitor goes blank after just a few seconds or sometimes works for hours.

My monitor worked one day - gone the next. Nothing on the screen except a bright green glow. No tech support for this problem. They want $70. just to look at it.

SOURCE: Monitor making humming noise

First try moving speakers away from monitor a bit. Some speakers magnets actually reduce the life span off monitor. I hope I am wrong but usually a high pitch whine is the High voltage Transformer. Costs more than the monitor. All you can do is continue use till it goes. Speakers usually deteriorate the tube itself. HVT are just one of those parts that go due to use. Hope it gives you more enjoyment before it goes. Good luck and try to have a good day.

SOURCE: kds model 780 monitor no signal, power button does not work

My monitor does the same thing at times and sometimes shows "No Signal" and at other times the screen will maintain the images but the backgound color switches to mustard yellow. In each of these cases I have been able to solve the problem by unplugging the power cord from the electical outlet for about three seconds and plugging it back in. I have a KDS model 780 LCD.
GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: My monitor stays on for 6 seconds

Hello,

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 www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htmYou 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 goes on and off........seemed to come on for the xp boot, but then disappears or is intermittant when the xp login page appears. Only fix sometimes is to reboot the computer. Very strange. Only...


In your Windows XP
  1. Go to Start and click
  2. The Start menu will open
  3. In the start menu click settings
  4. In the settings select "Control Panel"
  5. The Window of control Panel click "Power Options"
  6. In the Power options you will find Display time settings. These are the time settings that determine the time like if your computer stay idle for 5 min, the display will shut down.
  7. I suspect that this time is set to be very low like if there is no activity on the computer such as key punching, typically happens when you are reading an e-book Windows will automatically shut down the display. So you can increase the idle time to say 7-10 minutes and/or a similar setting is "Put the computer to sleep". Try to carefully alter the time values and you will find a good settings that work for you.
If the above tip does not work then there is definitely something wrong with your monitor's hardware most probably the power supply. You need to check it with a repair shop.

Good Luck!

I have an acer aspire e380 4400, i upgraded my video card to a msi 240gt 1gb. I have had nothing but problems trying to get my computer to run properly. Vista 64, 4 gb ram, 850 watt psu are the other...


You don't say what kind of monitor you have, but that's probably where the problem is. Most likely you have the new video card set for a higher resolution than the monitor can handle. When Windows starts up and switches to your settings, the monitor shuts down. Some monitors will display a message like "input signal out of range" before shutting off, but not all brands or models do.

Look up your model of monitor and find its maximum resolution, and don't set your card greater than that. Press the F8 key when your computer starts up after turning on the power, and choose the "start in VGA" option from the startup menu. This will allow Windows to come up with a resolution setting all monitors can handle. Then you can change your settings.

If you upgraded your video card because you have applications that require high resolutions that the monitor doesn't offer, you'll need to upgrade your monitor as well.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Windows explorer keeps shutting down if inactive.


Go into the Control Panel and check out this category:
Power Options - See if your computer is set to shut down or enter standby mode at a specified interval. If you do not want it to, change the setting to an acceptable one. You will have options for time until the monitor turns off, the hard drive turns off, the system stands by and the system hibernates.

Hope this helps,

When I am on line for about twenty to thirty minutes, my monitor goes black and then eventually the computer shuts down, what causes this?? When I reboot, the computer stays on forever


Check for the following settings:
1. Power saving feature
2. Is the system configured for sleep or hibernate?
3. Try restoring the system back to factory defaults (backup the files you need to keep first)

Note: Try to include the following information every time you request for support for your computer:
1. Brand Name (Acer, Dell, HP, IBM etc.)
2. Operating System (XP, Vista, Linux, MacOS, etc.)
3. Any recent changes made (installations, updates, upgrades, etc)
4. Any error mesages?

Standy By Going off/Computer shutting down


The presentation power scheme is used when you are giving a briefing using the PC as your slide show. So the presentation power scheme will never shut off the monitor or the hard drive, don't want it to shut down in the middle of a briefing.However, leaving it in that state for long periods of time may cause the CPU to overheat and shut itself down for protection. A better scheme for quick boot up would be Home/Office. Turn monitor off after 20 minutes and "never" for hard disk. This way it will save energy (therefore heat) and you will have a quick boot up. If you are using XP Pro, there is also an option to automatically put it in standby when you close the lid of your monitor. Hope this helps. If you have any questions let me know... Please rate this solution before logging off.
