Question about MegaVision MFV141 14" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Should I go for repairs?

I was just wondering if there is a DYI solution, or I would be better off repairing or replacing the monitor for this issue:

Well, I like moving my lcd monitor around to better suit me when I am lying down or sitting. This involves passing the monitor through the bad frame bars, which I usually have no trouble with. today, I squeezed it through and the monitor turned off. Not only that, when I turned the monitor back on, it would not show a normal screen. Even when I moved the mouse cursor, turned the monitor on and off again, disconnected it and reconnected it to the computer, and pressed the menu option on it, the monitor would still show the strange moving green and purple clouds of light. The little menu would not show up either.

Most reputable repair shops will tell you if it can be repaired and how much it will cost. You can then chose to repair or replace based on their estimate. You should not have to pay for this service and should get second opinion if possible. Many times the repairs on LCD monitors approach replacement cost. Even broken your monitor has some value to someone and should be sold or donated not thrown away if it is cost prohibitive to repair.

Black screen on pc


Look at the screen closely at an extreme angle while it's on. If you can see the normal display but it's just very dim then the screen inverter is shot; an easy DYI project for ~$40. If there's no display at all, can you test it by hooking it up to a monitor? If that works then the screen either went bad and needs replacing (under $200) or the power circuit to the screen (delicate wires near hinge) need replacing. If an external monitor doesn't work then it "might" be a graphics chip failure. Easier at that point to just replace than repair.

I have a mw monitor ,it comes on for about a miniute then goes black i can hear sound . the picture is dull switch off then on same problem. can it be the backlight?


Hello,

The picture board of your monitor has developed fault. That is why the screen goes black.

The best thing for you to do is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity, because the fault is not something you can fix on your own in other not to complicate issues.

The repairer will help replace the faulty picture board and your monitor is back and better.

Take care.

My zune will not turn on just a black screen


TrytheZune on a different charger or usb port. If that also fails, and thehard reset did not do the trick either, there is probably an issue withyour motherboard (could be your dock connector or an electronicproblem). There are third party Zune repair services, that will fix it for cheap. Even better, I found an DYI Zune repair guide, soyoucan do it yourself too. Part is availableo nEbay. If you can't do it yourself, have a tech savvy friend do itfor you. If it does work on a different PC, then the issue lies withinyour windows. If you re-install your PC to factory and then re-installfresh zune software it should work.

Comes on and blinks several times and sometimes stays on but usually have to turn off and on like 10-12 times to get stay on


Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem, we have repaired many Samsung monitors with this problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you can't do the repair we offer a repair service, contact us for more details or if you have more questions.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

My screen doesent fit and it is hourglass shaped it is driving me nuts


The problem is called "pincushion distortion" and happens because of the way CRT monitors work. There is circuitry in the monitor to correct the display, but it's not working in your monitor. Often this is because of bad solder connections to transistors in the circuit (they get pretty hot sometimes and can cause the connections to degrade). It can also be due to failure of those parts.

If you are comfortable working with electronic soldering and want to try your own repair, open the monitor and examine the board for bad connections. Repair any that are grainy or obviously cracked. Typically the parts that need resoldering are mounted on metal heatsinks so you have a place to start looking.

I don't recommend paying a shop to repair this. New 17-inch LCD monitors are so inexpensive today that it's better just to replace the CRT one.

No Video on Monito - Blue Power lite is on


Hello.
Sounds like the backlight inverters or CCFL tubes are at fault.
Turn the monitor on with it connected to a known good SVGA signal source that is sure to have video. (Like the computer when it is operating.)
Hold a flashlight to the screen of the monitor and see if the faint video can be seen through the screen.
If the video is faintly present on the monitor screen using this method of illumination, then either the CCFL inverters / Inverter board has failed, or the CCFL tubes themselves have gone bad. (CCFL = Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp)
This should give you a better idea of how to proceed, repair or replace.
If it is the inverters or CCFL, Repair costs for a DYI project could range from $70 to $120 depending on the level of your expertise and parts availability.
Good luck with your quest.
