Mn x2gen monitor will not power up. The power supply's led is illuminated. The light on the power button is very dim. Model #MW19R


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

I assume you have already try this monitor with other PC, just to be sure before opening up the case.

Screen goes black but power light stays on


Hello. I had the same problem with my X2gen 19" (model MW19R)monitor. In my case, the monitor would turn off after 20 seconds or so but the blue power light would stay on as well. I had to replace a high voltage capacitor located in the backlight power supply board. There are 4 blue capacitors on the board which are identical and they are marked as 27J 3KV. Fortunately, I only had to replace one of these capacitors ( it was turning a yellowish brownish color ). Hope this helps.

Blinking Power Light and monitor will not come back on....


The monitor needs an internal eletronic repair. Do you have the the necessary anti static tools including soldering iron. If so I can help you with the repair, else take it to a pro.

X2gen 19 inch monitor wont power on


Had the same problem with mine. First you need a volt meter (radio shack about $15). check the push in connector and make sure it has coming from it.

Place you meter on DCV for DC voltage, Then place one lead in the end of the plug in the hole. (will not fit all the way so will need to hold it there, Put the other lead on the shiny part of the plug. If you get a reading of 12 volts +/- 1 volt your good. Depending on which lead is were you may get a minus reading this is fine as if you switch your leads around it will go positive. you must have the cord plugged into the wall to do this test. You will not get shocked or anything as 12v is not enough to hurt you.

If you have the 12 volts the problem is in the monitor on the male plug or on the board. this takes more to fix and must take the back off the monitor and fix the connection or replace. I did this to mine and it is working right now.

X2gen MW19U Monitor Black screen but sounds like it is cycling


The monitor is on protection.

Test:

  • Video cable.
  • Video adapter on PC (sometimes integrated on motherboard)
  • Motherboard.

If it is monitor fault , then the monitor is on protection.

When on protection you keep having a flashing led on front of the monitor , and monitor turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, faulty inverter board, faulty input board, or a fault on LCD Digital Controller board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

Try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Monitor Failure


Your system was not affected because the PSU can prevent power surges. Your monitor's backlight has went out due to surges in electricity to your monitor. Unfortunately, you can not replace the backlight. I would suggest you buy a new monitor. 19" LCD Monitors has have went down dramatically in the past month.
