As soon as it come on it shutdown and lcd is dark but you still can see in dark lcd

It doesn't sound like the system is shutting down. It sounds more like the LCD display back-light isn't working. Try connecting an external monitor to you system and booting it up. You may find that the external monitor has video. You may also toggle through the three state video selections. Hold down Fn and tap F7. this should take you through all three steps. Good luck.

If this was helpful Please rate the solution high. thanks.

Does not receive signal. Power saving Mode appears and that it switches to standby,

have you tried turning it on in safe mode? The F8 key at the top of the keyboard should give you that mode. Once you turn the computer on, continuously press F8 until it switches to safe mode-then go into 'control panel' and check settings for your monitor.

Lcd screen shuts down

the powersupply for the tubes is defect.
you have to replace some electrical condensators
( elco) I think betwheen 100/40V and 470uF/25V
you will find different piece's inside
look near the transformers on the bcp where the wire for the tubes is connected. just replace them and it will work

My monitor screen appears only a few seconds, and close but then blue light stay on. if i shut the monitor down and reopen it, the screen appears and close after a few seconds. can you help me

lacouche, You didn't let us know any history of this monitor!!! Was it working perfectly fine on Sep 19th 2009? How old is the lcd monitor? How many "on" hours of use can you estimate that is has seen? If you lived next-door to my house I could help you trouble shoot it and find out if the "switch-mode-power-supply' has a problem with swollen CAPACITORS--which may/may not cause a problem with the cold-cathode-fluorescent-tube's" electronic ballast circuit which is called ( in lcd monitors ) a INVERTER CIRCUIT. The new style CURLIE-Q screw-in-energy efficient CFL light bulbs use a cheaper electronic ballast called CONVERTER circuit. I suspect that either one or both circuits are at fault and causing the unit to go into SHUTDOWN mode. Well, I guess that the only one to help you will be someone at ACER, or maybe a local TECH can repair it for $40-$90US. Or if you investigate your problem you might(with a lot of luck) repair it for 15-20dollars. Anyway, Good luck. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel

I have LCD Benq 17" monitor that suddenly refuses to power up!

that shouldn't have messed up your monitor at all. It sound slike it needs to be reset. Unplug the monitor for at least 5 minutes. Then plug it in and power it back on.It may be stuck in a standby mode.

Monitor will not turn on including power switch

I suspect the power supply for the monitor. Try a power supply from a working monitor. If you have a used computer store nearby, take your power supply to them and try it on another monitor.

There is no need to turn off a monitor using its power switch. Monitors automatically go into standby mode when they are not receiving a signal. In standby mode they use less than one cent of electricity per day. If saving electricity is your goal, raise the temperature in your home by a degree and run the air conditioning less.

No display, clipping sound appear

The clipping sound is the internal safety switch that keep shutting down the monitor.
It means there is an internal problem on the main board (overvoltage, bad component , short).
Try unplugging power cord and leaving it unplugged two or three hours, this will reset ICs by draining power completely from circuits, it is called hard reset, it rarely works.
CRT monitors waste up to 15 times more energy than TFT screen, if your CRT starts giving troubles, then it is a good time for upgrading it to a new TFT.

I'm still not sure about your question. Let me quess that by saying power/standy light goes to red...that mean your computer
is going into standby mode.!!!! So do it this way..on the left or right top corner of your notebook not the monitor, you should be having a small pin pointing up..I think that pin is use when you close the lid of your Laptop and it make your laptop goes into standby mode.When I mean goes into standby(sleep mode) the first think you can notice that your monitor light will be off and you can still see a very light image.So maybe this pin is stuck try to push it down for several times..
best of luck, takecare
