We had the same problem with a Princeton VL1918 19" LCD monitor. Usually its a capacitor problem. If this is the case you might need to take the monitor apart look on the power board for the bulged capacitors and pull the numbers off of the caps. Go to a radio shack or find an electronics store in your area, get a soldering gun a soldering vaccum bulb and a wet sponge. Make sure you plug the right post into the right hole before you solder it. There is a Negative and a Positive on the caps. The wafer board should say where the negative whole is, also the capacitors on the board will show a negative side. Just use a pen or a sharpie mark for the negative posts, there may be a few caps that may be bulged. On the Princeton I just fixed it had three of the same capacitors 470uf at 25volts. Make sure you get the right caps or you have the potential to mess your monitor up even more than it already is. Inspect all your caps on your power board, Im sure there will be some rather larger ones and some small ones, if they look bad or you even suspect them of being bad REPLACE THEM. Capacitors are CHEAP so replace them if you suspect them of being bad. Solder new caps onto the board and then clip the extra cap posts. A note on safety. PLEASE BE SAFE DESOLDERING OLD CAPS. They can be charged in some cases. Just don't cross the posts when desoldering. The new ones that are packaged should not be charged but safety first ALWAYS assume a capacitor IS charged at all times! You will live longer if you take that approach!

It is probably the power board / video board is causing the problem. If you check power cord is ok.

How do i stop auto adjusting


Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your monitor on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

FLATRON W2061 TQ will not turn on.


Yes! it is most likely one or two capacitors that are open in the power supply, and they sometimes show a bulge at the top and leak contents in rare cases.

Monitor keeps turning off but power says it's still on


You are OK with the power cord, more likely to be failure in the power supply/Inverter board, look for bad fuse and shorterd transistors, see Dell pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Transistors should be checked out off circuits.

Dell E173FP Monitor requires unplugging/plugging back in to wake


Perhaps your computer is hibernating instead of going into standby which takes a little longer to wake up from. While you are playing plugs and cables it give it enough time to come out of hibernation.

When the computer is in this mode the USB ports turn off which disables keyboard and mouse so the only way to wake up the computer is to press the power button on the computer itself.

One tell tale sign a computer is in hibernation is that the power light on the computer will slowly blink.

I hope this helps.

Hi,

Often the plug of the power cord and its mate, the jack in the monitor, would have to conform with the region/country of its intended use. Having said this, then it is possible that your particular version is meant for another country but is likewise sold in your country. A picture of the monitor's connector would help narrowing the selection and possible source/supplier. Pls post if able.

Alternately, you could try viewing the different types here, here or here to get the specific part number or model of the AC cord.

Incidentally, most electronics shops/stores sell a variety of power cords, perhaps a visual check would further assist you.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Cant turn on


Is the cord missing - perhaps a low/voltage co-ax socket which means that you will need an external power supply

Monitor


I would try going into your video settings, right click on your desktop then go to properties, In the window click on the Screen Saver tab and go to the bottom where it says monitor power click the button that says powermidway towards the bottom there will be 3 settings, the first being "turn off monitor" with a drop down menu... set it to Never. That should keep it from turning off. If there is something wrong with the cables and its stil shutting off, you may just need to gte a new power cord, its usually the same cord used for the computer power and they aren't very expensive, Radio Shack probably carries them. Hope thishelps, Good Luck!
