Question about Proview PL926WBi 19" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Monitor shuts off after about 3 seconds of being turned on.

The colors become pinkish-purple and then the monitor shuts down and the power buttom goes amber as opposed to the blue when it is working correctly. Secondarily, since it is a problem and not operational at this time, can I connect my laptop to my desktop via usb ports? Thank you.

Replace The LCD they run around 100.00 to 200.00 depending on size and brand, if the computer is new, use the warranty(tell them that the screen does nothing, ever(stick by this and the 2 hour telephone troubleshooting will end quickly) if it is old replace computer, 2 -3 years old is an old computer(laptop)especially when you can buy what you already have for close to nothing or if this never leaves your desk and your computer works with VGA(serial port on back or side) you can buy an external monitor for close to nothing.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.

Sounds like either there is a bad connection from the computer to the monitor, or the monitor has a faulty power regulator, causing the monitor to overheat prematurely, and shut off.

The problem can be the lamps are bad, the only way to tell is to remove the lamps, look for poor soldering works where the wires are attached to the lamps, bad lamps will have very dark color at the end of the lamps, just like bad fluorescent lamp you see when it is worn out, anoher sign of bad lamp is pinkish glow when lamp si first turn on. The transistors and caps are good in the inverter section?

My monitor shuts down after one second.

Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean that your Dell computermag-glass_10x10.gif has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display settings.
  1. Step 1 Press any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your Dell computer tower or laptop.
  2. Step 2 Press any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
  3. Step 3 Enter your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
  4. Step 4 Change the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press "Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the drop-down list and press "Apply."

Hp flat panel monitor comes on shows logon and then blank screen

Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on?
If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps.
If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

LCD monitor turns black after a few seconds

I went through a lot of threads trying to come up with the solution to this problem, monitor goes off after a couple of seconds of just hitting the blue power button, and the solution I came to is the power supply within the monitor has gone out! which is common for flat pannel monitors, but I am not saying my situation is the same as yours, if you see different colors when it goes off on you, their is other problems wrong, mine has always been the power supply and I just take the monitor to a laptop repair guy and he charges me 65 flat to repair the issue. instead of going to viewsonic which they want you to send them and pay out of pocket first before they fix your issue. I will say 65 dollars flat and 3 days of not having a monitor is better then going to the ups store and paying 65 to box it and 70 to ship it. I guess look around for an electronics expert in your area and have them take a look at it.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

The power -inverter board probably needs an overhaul.
I redo many of these.
If the screen was pinkish or flickering before it finally got to this point, it is possible that a bulb has gone bad.
