Question about ASUS VH242H LCD TV

Monitor Blacks Out Randomly

I just bought an ASUS 24'' Monitor, and it worked fine when I first hooked it up. All of the buttons (menu/brightness/etc.) worked fine. After a few minutes of using the monitor, the screen blacked out, but the power light was still on. I couldn't get the screen to come back on, so I unplugged the power and reconnected it. The screen came back on for a second and blacked out again. I can get it to work intermittently though but it seems to shutoff whenever it feels like it. Also the buttons on the monitor don't work anymore. Only the button that switches modes does. (dvi,hdmi,vga). The power button doesn't even work when it's plugged in. I have to unplug the monitor to turn it off. Help please?

Well If the monitor is brand new and you just purchased I would take it back and get another one as it appears to be defective. Most stores will allow you to exchange a defective item without a problem as long as you have the receipt. Any attemot to make repairs yourself could void the warranty. If it is used it may still be under warranty...I would get the model/serial number and contact Asus to have repairs made. Most monitors have at least a one year warranty.

I have 3 out of 4 Asus VK222H LCD Monitor Menu/Brightness Appearing w/o Button Press, stays onscreens for varying amount of time, then dissapears for a while to return again. Monitors bought August 2008....

Mine did the same. I don't know what caused it, but removing the menu button solved it. Crude but effective.
I took a knife, pried out the Menu button, then took a pliers and removed the little black plastic button and problem solved.
Now I can't change the settings, but switching between VGA, HDMI, and DVI works just fine. No more annoying brightness pop-ups that don't go away!!!

The picture board on your monitor is malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on and it randomly stop the dispaly signals, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

ASUS MM17T lcd monitor switches off within 3 seconds after openin

If you have another monitor to plug in to your computer I would try that to verify your video card is good on your computer, most of the time your monitor will flicker off when there is no video signal detected. If your video card is good on your computer, then it could be an input cable, try another input source type, like if it is set up for HDMI and you have a spare SVGA cable hook that up to see if it work. The auto input control board in your monitor might also be going out too. Sounds like it might be time for a new monitor, they are repairable but a lot of work.
