Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the fact is you have a very old monitor. My research tells me that it is almost 10 years old.
The obvious problem and the one most likely is that the power board inside the monitor is going. It is common in LCD monitors of this age. Do yourself a favor and junk it and replace is with a new larger better monitor. They are so much better these days and so much much cheaper.
You can get a 22 inch wide screen monitor on Walmart.com right now for $104.00 and pick it up at your local Walmart with free shipping. Not advocating Walmart necessarily just pointing out. Recycle your old monitor responsibly and pick up a new one. No matter how cheap it is it will be better than what you have now and your current monitor is not worth a technicians time.
If you don't have the money for a new one go to your local thrift shop and get a working 17 inch for $20. Good luck.
Hello. I had the same problem with my X2gen 19" (model MW19R)monitor. In my case, the monitor would turn off after 20 seconds or so but the blue power light would stay on as well. I had to replace a high voltage capacitor located in the backlight power supply board. There are 4 blue capacitors on the board which are identical and they are marked as 27J 3KV. Fortunately, I only had to replace one of these capacitors ( it was turning a yellowish brownish color ). Hope this helps.
There should be a way to go into the screen settings on the set (either from the remote or on the bottom of the screen). From that menu you can adjust the size of the screen, stretch it, align it, etc.
I have exact same problem but mine happened to 2 of my x2gen monitors at the same time,really strange.
One was purchased 01/07 and the second 04/07
Took my PC in, no problems
Took one of the x2gen in,was told monitor is bad
How could both monitors go bad at the same time???????
It is probably be a faulty LCD crystal, or a bad internal connection where the electronics meet the LCD. I would think it could happen if the monitor is jarred or dropped, I guess it could occur also if the monitor was brought in from the cold weather and condensation occurred inside?
Unless you have access to a trained LCD technician, your only option is return the monitor for exchange or repair, or buy a new one.
When your game first loads. Enter the games settings and adjust the screen resoultion to match your wide screen monitor. If you can't get that far than hook up that other monitor. Load the game & enter it's screen settings (display) & adjust the resoultion. Your new monitor is wide screen. Your game needs to match the wide screen as well.
