Question about AOC CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Intermittent black screen

My 5 year old Daewoo monitor frequently goes black lasting a short period of time. When it comes back the screen must adjust. The blackness is occuring more often now. I've made sure the connections are tight.

Re: intermittent black screen

This is a generic symptom that could happen to any LCD monitor.
The following is a generic answer applicable to most.

Two possible causes are bad capacitors or a bad light inside the LCD panel.

Open the unit and check to see if any of the capacitors in the power supply or other boards look domed or vented on the top.

Replace any capacitors accordingly. Use the same value capacitors. Most often, 1000uF 16V or 25V, 470uF at 16 or 25V, 220uF at 16V or 25V.

If this doesn’t solve the problem, try checking the surface-mount transistors on the inverter board that run the lights. Some times these transistors go bad. Check the area for any cracked or overheated ceramic or mylar capacitors.
Also, you may have a bad light inside the panel. This is tough to test without a spare light to use for troubleshooting.

You can take the panel apart and inspect the lamps but it is very tedious. It's tough enough to get them apart and back together again never mind keeping the layers clean. You have to try not to get any dust between the layers or you will see it in the picture.

There are usually two light fixtures each of which holds two lamps. One fixture is at the top and one at the bottom. Remove them one at a time and inspect the lamps to see if any are broken or very dark on the ends. If one looks out of place, it could be bad.

You'll have to find replacement lights on the net. It's not easy to replace them, but if you've gone this far, good luck. You should be able to get generic instructions off of the site that sells the lamps.

E manchine e17tg turn on power you get just a

mrmadgbull, How long will e17tg display the WIN-desktop before it goes to BLACK screen? Is it 1, 2 ...4, 5.....20 seconds? How old is unit? Does unit have internal ac to dc SMPS or external (lay on floor) SMPS? Did problem occur suddenly? What do you see on screen after "it" goes black and you shine a bright flashlight 1 inch from screen? Can you still see some icons being faintly displayed?? Is unit out of it's warranty period? If lcd panel is both black and blank, "switch-mode-power-supply" could be in full shutdown mode. If you see desktop, SMPS is in partial shutdown mode. You or electronics technician will need to evaluate and repair unit. Read my FIXYA profile for more options you may have open to you. Your monitor no different than any other "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" backlit LCD monitor. There is a lot of DIY videos on YOUTUBE that deal with this type of monitor problem. Lots of tech types pick-up "black screen" lcd monitors at resale shops and refurbish them for less than $20 total cost, and they will work for another 2 -4 years. Do your research before making hasty decisions. If pocket is deep with disposable income, then just use e17tg as trade-in for new wide screen. Hope this was of some help. 12fixlouie

ViewSonic 19" flat screen monitor goes black - intermittently

There could be a problem with your display card settings or the display card itself. If you are using Windows operating system, make sure that you have the monitor driver installed for that specific monitor. This is to ensure that Windows only allows settings for which your particular monitor was designed.
Let me know if I can assist you any further regarding this.

My monitor goes black for about 2 seconds then goes back to pict.

Sounds asif the Xenon tubes that backlight the LCD are losing power. Probable cause, a power invertor or PSU fault.
It can be repaired by a hardware specialist, but best written off.
The cost of repair will be better spent on a new monitor.

Black screen

How old is the computer? Make sure that the power light comes onto the monitor when you plug it in, should be orange and then turn green when video card syncs with it when PC is turned on. If you are getting black screen when PC is powered on:
1. Bad video card
2. Bad video cable
3. Bad monitor
1Solution: Try using a different monitor attached to this same PC and see if it works. If it does, then its the monitor, its cable, or its power supply. If it doesn't work, then its the video card or the video cable coming from monitor.
