Re: help with my monitor

Hi .

If your monitor has a transformered type power supply EG 12 TO 24 VOLTS try another one they have a nasty habit of going faulty on nearly all makes that use this set up.

If its not that then it could be the inverter that has gone faulty.

MAG innovision LT-926W 900W problem! After I turn on my computer, the screen immediately begins to flash and then goes black. The power is still on thought and so is my computer. If I take a flash light...

this means your power inverter inside the monitor is dead. This little gizmo lights up the monitor backlight. They dont fail all at once, but slowly die and give problems like you describe, you can order these online for your monitor , or find one on ebay for under 30 dollars, but unfortunately there is no fix, other than replacing the inverter. sorry. Please use the thumbs up rating if you find my answer helpful, albeit bad news. Take care. .

My acer AL2416w monitor turns on to a black screen

I have 2 Acer AL2416W monitors that i have been using for 2 years. There has been a handful of times i would turn my computer on in the morning and the screen would be black and Acer would lightly flash on the monitor 1 time. Typically a restart would take care of the problem. Last week the monitor blacked out and i can't get it to work. Any suggestions?? I switched ports on the computer to verify it wasn't the video card and tried new DVI cables to verify it wasn't those? Is this fixable??

My Dell E193FP boots up with the computer and then

Seems to be a very common problem with this screen. Im taking one apart as we speak to try to discover the problem. In the mean time - check that the Power Input isnt loose, and you can wiggle it around. Usually means the power is arcing onto the board

Screen goes black after a few seconds

Problems like these happen all the time with LCD monitors. Usually one of two things. Bad Capacitors or a bad backlight. To check this, take a flashlight and point at your monitor (usually at a high angle) and see if you can still see the desktop faintly. If so then its either the back light or capacitor. Backlights shouldnt need replaced too often as they have a extremely long lifespan. Capacitors are relatively cheap and easy to replace, all is required is a soldering iron and an inexpensive trip to a Radio Shack. Though this isnt your monitor, it is a very good tutorial on how to go about replacing the capacitors. If it is the backlight, here is another tutorial for that :D

Screen turned black

your monitor got a hardware problem:
1) the LVDS controler board out of work, only change or repair it could be fixed.
2) if you can see some show like smaller signal detect windows in the centre of screen a very short time (bright flashing one time), this is inverter board damaged or worn lamps, thay all need repair or replace
hope give you some idea. please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks!

Powers up, shows test menu then black screen

This sounds like a video problem with the COMPUTER.....try the monitor on another computer. Usually, if you can see the monitor test pattern the monitor is ok.
