Many flat screens do not last past warranty.
get a new one , not worth repairing.
the cost of repairs come close to new one.
good luck

The l226wtq goes black


Try shining a flashlight on the screen, or without the flashlight, try to see if you can distinguish anything on the screen at all, if you do, the backlight is dead, or the monitor has an internal most likely unfixable problem.

Monitor not working


It may well be dead. Try testing the monitor on another working PC. Also try a working monitor on the problem PC. Then you will know whether it's the monitor or the PC graphics card that's faulty.

I have a ViewSonic flat screen monitor. The images on the sign in page are fuzzy and unreadable. I have Windows XP.


I would check the connections between the monitor and computer. Also the refresh rate and/or resolution might be wrong. To correct this, you will need to boot your computer in safe mode. (restart computer, right after the computer's logo appears rapidly press the F8 key until a black and white menu appears. Select SAFE MODE) once the computer boots to safe mode, the sign on screen will appear very large. Sign onto the computer once at the desktop, RIGHT CLICK the background and select PROPERTIES. Once the display properties window appears click on the last tab SETTINGS. Here is where you can adjust the resolution. Take the screen resoltution to a low setting. You can always change this later when you boot your computer normally to get a better view. Next click on the ADVANCED button click on the MONITOR tab, usually flat screens operate at a lower refresh rate then CRT monitors. I usually keep my refresh rate to 60 Hertz. Next click on the GENERAL tab. This will allow you to change the DPI setting. I usually keep mine set to 96 DPI. You may want to experiment with this as monitors vary. Once done, click on the APPLY button then OK. Restart the comptuer and see if this has improved your display. You may need to do this several times trying different settings until you get a clear display. If you've exhausted all these steps, try a different monitor or changing the cable. If that fixes the problem then you know you have a bad monitor or cable. Good luck, let me know how it turns out.

I am not 100% sure but I guess that the system board on the monitor has been overheated and therefore will require replacing.

You can get it tested but certified engineer local to you.

Please let me know how you get on. In the mean while I'll do a bit more research into this on your behalf.

Best of luck

Video problem on my Dell Dimension 4600 PC, HELP ASAP.


the resolution set by default when you load your graphics driver is outside the range of your monitors capability.

try starting in safe mode then adjust your resolution to 640 by 480 then restart.
if this works, adjust upwards to 1024 by 768
then up again till the screen blanks.
when it does, dont panic, wait 20 seconds and the settings will restore - you then have the optimum settings for your monitor.

good luck

Where Dell Flat screen 15" monitor has not been used for a period of time or on boot up the screen displays for a seond then goes black (although in a certain light you can see the icons and programs...


You most likely have a bad connection inside the unit. Specifically, there are a couple of "backlights" that provide the light that will pass thru the LCD panel. If you can open up the unit, with the screen facing up, there should be a small PC board on the right. Check the connections on that board. Be careful as there is high voltage there.
Keep us posted.
