Question about Polyview V17E 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
I am having a problem with my computer monitor, the Polyview V17E 17" LCD. It started when I returned from a trip during which the monitor was powered off and unplugged. When I first turned it on everything was fine, so I turned it off and left. Later, when I returned and turned it on it displayed gray striations (stretched-out) on the enture screen for a second or two then went black, however the blue LED power light stays lit. Turning it off then on using the power button does nothing. Unplugging it, on the other hand, reproduces the above situation with the striations followed by a blank screen. Unplugging the display input (I use DVI) does nothing. Switching to the VGA input also does nothing. Having no input at all plugged in, just the power, also produces the same results. I tried shining a flashlight into the blank monitor (as some of the other solutions here suggest) but I see nothing. It very much looks as though the monitor is shut off except for the blue LED. When I look under the Control Panel/Display/Settings it lists the Polyview monitor as "Not Active." Luckily I have a duel monitor set-up which makes this computer remain usable while also making it easier to troubleshoot the problem. Thank you very much ahead of time for any help that can be offered. I just brought a second hand polyview lcd monitor and i connected it to my computer it went fine for a few minutes and then crashed on me now all it says is no signal input and then turns off. I have checked the connections they seem to be ok. my computer was working fine with my crt monitor
The first Polyview has a power supply problem (a short) and locks out the power until it is unplugged. You need to check the voltages inside the Monitor to determine which component/s are faulty. I hope you know electronics if not leave it to the repair shop because you have neither the skills or equipment to repair it. By the way I am not a monitor repair man but I do have 30 plus years in the electronics field.
The second monitor may have a broken wire in the cord that goes to your computer. Other internal components can cause the same simptoms your seeing. Good luck!
