Hi,
It sounds like a thermal problem ie its heat related. As the unit warms up the problem gets worse and worse.
The most common problem is a bad solder joint in the electronics circuit which drives your screen. When current flows thru the solder joint it heats up and expands, making the poor solder connection even worse. ie the solder gap gets bigger as it expands.
An experienced repairer will use something like an pressurized can of freon (or a similar product) which is used to spray on suspect solder joints until the problem disappears. That soldered joint is then re-done.
NOTE: working on live equipment should be left to an expert. If you aren't trained, don't do it!
With the cheap price of monitors these days it may be cheaper to buy another. Compare the repair price to your loss of enjoyment or down time of your system.
If the unit is still under warranty, call the manufacturer (is it a Dell unit?)
Cheers,
Steve

My zyxel P-660HW-T1 v3 has the restart problem.. When i try to restart modem from browser by 192.168.1.1 and tools then everything goes smoothly till there then after i clicked restart option, It seems ok...


Have patience! It can take the modem/router 30 to 90 seconds to _FULLY_ restart, and to synchronize with the Internet Service Provider's network. Meanwhile, your computer may show "no network connection" or "network cable unplugged". Then, it takes 15 seconds for your computer to synchronize with your modem/router -- that 15 seconds is what you're experience if you unplug the cable, and then "last action to plug it".

1. Reset the router by pressing the reset button of the router for 15 seconds while the power cord is plugged in and while the router is powered on.
2. Release Reset button after 15 seconds and unplug the power cord of the router then press the reset button again for 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds release the reset button and replug the power cord then press the reset button again for 15 seconds.

If this didn't work.
1. Plug the power cord to the router, and unplug it do this 7 times then reset for 15 seconds while it's unplugged and plug it back it and press the reset button for 15 seconds and release it. Try to check if there's any changes.

Lcd quit working


There is a 95% chance that your powerboard needs to be upgraded with a few newer-better components.
I repair many gateway boards on ebay and this is a common occurence.

There is also a slight chance that a bulb is weak and is causing that effect.

If you unplug the vga cord while it is on, let it sit about 30 seconds till the power light turns to amber and then plug the vga cord back in you may get the desktop to flash on for a second or two.

It would have to be taken apart and the boards looked at to get a better idea.
If you do take it apart, send me a picture of the board to bammbamm@ptd.net. I may see a problem

Picture goes off


A temporary solution is to unplug the TV for a few minutes, remove static from the glass with your hand. It is important to unplug rather than turn off. If you have a degauss button you can also press that before unplugging. Wait several minutes or an hour. Then plug it back in. If you have Picture in Picture it may be an issue with that and to permanently solve may need a repair person. The unplugging may get you by for a few days at a time. That's at least better than an hour.

I have a toshiba theatre view 52-54 in.? There is no picture-it seems like the tv is off but the power button light keeps blinking. Tried using remote and button on tv. neither works.


Same problem with mine. I find that if i unplug it and let it sit for about 15 minutes ( let the capacitor drain?) i can plug it back in and it automatically comes back on and works fine till I want to turn it off again and it goes right back to the flashing power light.
I bought an on/off remote for the wall oulet and it makes a great work-around.

Wii console will not come on


First things first. We'll start from the beginning. Unplug the AC Adapter from the wall and from the Wii. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Then plug it back in. 9 times out of 10 your power supply needs to be reset. The only way to reset it is to unplug it from the wall and the wii and let it sit for 15 min. Try this first and report back if it worked. Even if you think you have done this already do it again.
