Assuming that there is no hardware fault, this is indicative that your PC's Screen Resolution and/or Screen Refresh Rate are higher than what the monitor can display.

To correct, start your PC in Safe Mode, go to Display Properties (right click on any clear area of your desktop, click on Properties, click on Settings tab, move Screen resolution towards left or 800 X 600 and lower Color quality to 16 bit) and lower down all settings (including Advanced/Monitor/Screen refresh Rate). Reboot.

Once in Normal Mode, do the same again and increase settings one step at a time and click OK/Apply. In the event that the display disappears again, hit escape and/or revert back to last known good setting(s).

Hope this be of help.idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Sansui no signal

Acer produces a number of LCD computer monitors. Acer's monitors range from 17 inches to 27 inches. Some monitors offer wide-screen viewing, embedded speakers, high-definition visuals, and various display connection ports. Acer computer monitor problems include common issues such as dead pixels, error messages, and blank screens caused by incorrect connections. Some reviewers have also detected image problems with DVD playback on some models.

"Input Not Supported" Error Message Acer computer monitors such as the G24 may issue an "Input Not Supported" error message when users set the display resolution too high. The G24's maximum display resolution is 1920x1200 with a 60Hz refresh rate. Maximum resolutions vary according to the specific monitor model and according to the capabilities of the computer's video card. b> "Input Out of Range" b> Some Acer computer monitors may report an "Input Out of Range" error message due to incorrectly set monitor refresh rates. Much like the display resolution, each monitor also has specific monitor refresh rates with which it is compatible. Blank Screen or "No Signal" Error b> Like other monitors, Acer computer monitors feature color-coded power indicator lights. If the power indicator light shows green, the contrast or brightness levels may be set too low and should be adjusted via the OnScreen Display. If this does not rid the monitor of a black screen, the monitor may be experiencing hardware failure. The "No Signal" or "Check Cable message" may indicate a problem with the monitor's cable connection with the video card. This error may also appear on a blank screen backdrop if the monitor is plugged into the incorrect port on the computer or if the computer is frozen and needs to be rebooted. Faulty power cords or outlets may cause the screen to be black and to show no power indicator color. b> Image Issues b> Some review sites such as CNET have reported problems with streaking and ghosting during DVD playback on some Acer computer monitors such as the AL1931. (A "ghost" is an identical offset image as the primary or desired image.) Unstable or unclear image issues may be caused by incorrectly programmed VGA timings or incorrectly installed monitor drivers. b> Dead Pixels b> Dead pixels and sub-pixels can cause a variety of display enjoyment problems. Acer will only accept returns on LCD computer monitors that have "more than four (4) defective pixels per million pixels." Further, the central area of the monitor may have no more than one defective pixel. Acer does not differentiate in warranty terms between pixels and sub-pixels. Hope this helps.

I believe the max resolution this LCD can support is 1440 x 900 / 75 Hz. If you set your display resolution higher then that, you will receive the input signal out of range error. Your LDC turns off to protect it self from the invalid settings. If you can not change it back once your PC boots to windows, you may have to do it in save mode by pressing F8 once you power on your PC and before the windows loading screen starts.

My samsung 750s monitor has a message saying sync. out of range

When you turn off the pc the monitor loses the sync signal and should go into a suspend mode where the screen is blanked. The power management settings should be checked. In display properties check that the monitor is installed correctly.

DELL E153FPf doesn't show the image

OSD Warning Messages A warning message may appear on the screen indicating that the monitor is out of sync range.
Cannot Display This Video Mode
This means that the monitor cannot synchronize with the signal that it is receiving from the computer. Either the signal is too high or too low for the monitor to use. See Specifications for the Horizontal and Vertical frequency ranges addressable by this monitor. Recommended mode is 1024x768 @ 60Hz.
Occasionally, no warning message appears, but the screen is blank. This could also indicate that the monitor is not synchronizing with the computer or the monitor is in a power save mode.

Connecting PC to television

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try the lowest possible Screen Resolution in the PC's Display Properties. You could also try lowering the Screen refresh Rates. This is especially so if the PC connects to the TV using composite (yellow) video out or S-Video. In some video cards/settings, it may be necessary to enable twin/dual view in the display properties.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

There may wrong setting of refresh rate. Most monitors work at 60 to 70 Hz refresh rate. Above that they tunned blank screen or out 0f range message displayed. Also check the output video signal. Please confirm technical specifications from the documentatation of the monitor.
