Question about Soyo DYLM1998 Monitor

1 Answer

I have a Soyo Monitor, Model MT-NI-DYLM1998. It had been working OK, but I put my computer in storage for 2 weeks and then tried to reconnect. The Soyo monitor stays blank (black) except when it is turned on, the monitor shows a picture for 2 seconds and then goes blank again. I run windows XP with the latest update. It appears to be hooked up correctly. It does not come on when I move the wire in, only when the monitor is turned on, and then only for a few seconds. Any ideas? Robert Burlingame

Soyo monitor MT-NI-DYLM1998 "out of range."

Your windows 7 screen resolution is set too high and your display doesn't support it. There are 3 possible solutions to this problem:
1. Press F8 during startup and choose "Enable row-resolution video"
2. Press F8 during startup and choose "Safe mode" and change screen resolution there, then reboot.
3. You can always use another display (if you have one) to set screen resolution to lower value.

Check internal "switch-mode-power-supply board" only after devoting about 1-2 hours of viewing "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" video clips at YOUTUBE!!! Then you will need to make big decision!!! Let me and all who read this know what your plan of action is.

Thank you for answering those questions. That usually indicates it has a bad power inverter. From what i can tell, that monitor is a few years old. You can attempt to find an inverter online to replace it yourself (usually about $50 if you can find one) since its no longer covered under warranty, or put that money into getting a new monitor.

SOYO 19 TFT LCD Will not come on. Says "no input signal" Re-bot does not work. Everything is plugged in.

Have a 22'' Soyo LCD MT-NI-DYLM2286 and without any warning the the disply is blank ... power light comes on solid ... but no pic???

Try another known working monitor on the computer to make sure you are getting video.

If you do get video with the known working monitor then you know the original monitor is bad.

If you don't get video with the known working monitor then you know that its a problem with the computer.
