Question about E-Machines eMachines Monitor E15T4

1 Answer

Emachine monitor E17T4 does not respond when the front switch is depressed

I have Emachines LCD 17" monitor which has been working perfectly since i bought it in Nov 2005. This morning i tried to switch it on. It did not come on. The CPU booted perfectly alright . I confirmed this by hooking the pc to a spare monitor I had.

When ever I depress the power button, I see a slight flash that is visible only in the dark. Please suggest trouble shooting steps to find out what could be wrong and how to fix it. Thanks.

    My emachines monitor that is 2 years old will come on, the yellow light around the power is on, and when pressed it will turn blue, but says no signal and goes back to yellow. The computer seems to be on, but no signal is received by the monitor. Could this be the cable to/from the tower or the video card?

Problems with my emachines monitor. I have an Emachines monitor as my second monitor E17T4 monitor. When the machine is on sometimes it is fine othertimes the screen goes black but the power light stays...

youmight remove your graphics and check the socket for dust restart your computer this should activate the found new hardware wizard
if you run an extended desktop this will tell you if the monitor has gone bad
use a vga lead to attach it

click start control panel display change display settings adjust resolution this may vary depending on your operating system you should a no 1 and a no 2 with detect and identify keep an eye on

the screen when you select the number tabs this may vary depending on your operating system when you select the no 2 tab this should be the extended desktop always click apply after making any changes
i have read some reviews on your monitor
So the ex-hubby calls me with his woes - his eMachines T3124 is having problems. Seems that when he cold boots in the morning it hits the "E" splash screen and then just goes to black screen. No bios boot screen, no boot to windows. Everything sounds ok though. After a few restarts it boots ok. So, first trouble shoot is to replace the 180w Bestec power supply with a salvaged 300w Hippro from my T6420 (which was replaced with a 500w) - the one I replaced the mobo on. Works great ... for one night. Next morning I get the frantic call - now he gets nothing after the "E" splash but white wavy lines, but the computer sounds like it's running fine. Ok - ok ... think, think. First thought was maybe the onboard graphics have gone, next thought maybe the mobo is going ....

What is the next thing we do after trying a known, good power supply? Try another working montior. I had him try using a trusty older CRT monitor and Wha-Lah! After less than 3 years the E17T4 LCD monitor had failed. Most recent crisis handled. This little incident has made him realize though that he needs to burn all his picture and videos to CD. Scared him to think he could have lost them. Today's reminder? BURN your pictures and videos now! You never known when something might happen. And eMachines monitors are ****.

hope this helps

I have a black e machines E17T4 monitor that suddenly stopped working, the power button does nothing when it's plugged in can it be fixed?

It might be able to be fixed but typically repairs on monitors are going to cost you more than a new one would. If it's still in warranty I would contact the manufacturer unless you purchased an extended warranty.

Monitor works in dos starup, but fails in Vista startup mode.

Sounds like windows resolution or refresh rate is too high for the 15" monitor. Try starting in safe mode and setting the resolution below 1024 X 768 and refresh at 60. Restart.

Emachine 17" lcd monitor from Best Buy

1: Check the cable connections for the VGA or DVI cable at both ends for a secure connection.

2: There may be a button on the bezel of the monitor for input source to switch between VGA, DVI, or HDMI. While the monitor is on, press that one or more times waiting 2 or 3 seconds between presses to see of it finds the signal.
