Question about Mag Innovision LT776s 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Blank screen When I boot up, the monitor (just about 2 years old) turns white. I can see a few hazy colored lines in the white. I either have to keep turning the monitor on and off and hitting it on the side or top, or I have to reboot the entire computer. Finally the desktop will come up. The same thing happens if I let it go into sleep mode, so I basically cannot use sleep mode any more. Some days it takes a half dozen trys to get the monitor to work. The cables are not loose, the rest of the computer runs fine. Do I need a new monitor?

    Thank you for the suggestion. The next time I have the problem, I will try the flashlight solution. Then, If I need new lamps, I will have to call Best Buy or some place, and figure out whether they have the lamps, what they cost, and how to open the screen and install them, if they are the problem. There are no visible screws on this screen for opening it.

    I also noticed such a problem with my flatscreen monitor, and it only appeared today (after about 2-3 years of usage). On boot, the screen went mostly white, as if someone had pressed down firmly on it with a white paint roller. After the boot process changed modes, the monitor's image was fixed.

    Throughout the workday, nothing was wrong. But the problem recurred again late in the day, when the screen saver was active. The whiteness remained. I turned off the monitor, and when I turned it back on, no white screen. Any ideas as to why it's acting this way?

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen went white, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace.
Thank you,

it's doing testing in color codes to refresh the color on the screen, if it keeps going blank, that's usually a sign of monitor going bad.

boot to safe-mode. (f8 pressed prior to windows starts) choose "safe mode" in this advanced boot menu. If the screen displays in this mode, it's a driver issue. If it fails, it's the screen or the vid card. Swap screens (CRT preferred) if it works vid card is good, screen is bad. If it fails you must use a known good vid card to isolate the point of failure

Sylvania (proview) cl2072b flat panel monitor


Well the first and second paragraphs make me say the Inverter/power board must be replaced.

A white display typically means either your display cable (in your monitor) is loose or logic board is dead.

Either one of these things typically mean take it in for an estimate to repair, and if it's too much, buy a new one.
With your luck I think I might switch to big cheap CRT.

Lacie 19" Electron Blue - Black screen with a brilliant white line across


I have 2 of these monitors and have this problem. I was so frustrated turning the monitor off and on until the white line disappeared that one day, I punched the screen. And it worked! So now whenever this happens (about once every other day) I use my palm and smack the lower left corner of the monitor until the white line disappears. I like the color on these screens so I don't want to replace them until I have to. I will NOT buy another Lacie though.
