Question about X2Gen MG19MY 19" LCD Monitor

5 Answers

X2gen MW19R picture only stays on for one to fifteen seconds...

I just bought a X2gen MW19R on E-Bay. I got the monitor today, hooked it up and the picture only stayed on for about 15 seconds. The power light remained on. I can turn it off and then back on and the picture will return but only for between 1 and 15 seconds. I tried this monitor on two other computers with the exact same result. Is it defective, do I need to download a driver, or do I need to do something else?

Thanks,

Chris

    I took the monitor appart and could not find any exidence of burns nor could I smell anything burnt. I had my nose nice and close too. Is there anything else I could check and if so could you explain more in-deapth? I really have no idea what an ESR is and barely know what a capacitor is. Could I solder in new ones if you could tell me exactly where the suspected faulty ones are?



    Thanks,



    Chris

I am sorry people are having issues. I have 3 of these monitors in a tri-monitor mount all using DVI connectors and I love them. They have worked great for almost a year now.

I had the same problem it was the capacitors i replace it with others that has more capacity and you buy them in radioshack y change it youreself
and know it works great

Same thing happened to me. Are you using the original power supply, or did you try to replace it with a "universal" power supply? Most universal power supplied only put out about 1 - 2 amps. This monitor requires a 4 amp power supply.

Dear Chris,

Visually check the component :
Try checking on the power board , may be ESR of capacitor is faulty and power resistor shorted and burnt.

    Chris,

    You can get an ESR meter repair shops.It is a capacatance meter.For an older type It tell straight away either it is ok or not by emittimg a beep sound but the blue model are better it cost around US120.

    Or you can get from this www.electronicrepairguide.com from Justine Yong.I have been ESR meter for a couple of yrs . It is very helpful to me and so to you too.

After hooking up my Dell to the monitor it displayed a message ! " Out of range ," the monitor then went black . How do I fix it ?


Your screen resolution or refresh rate is set out of limits for the monitor. Check your monitor documentation to determine the correct resolution and refresh rates for the monitor. Then reboot the PC, go into SAFE mode, then re-adjust the display resolution there. Once you reboot after that, the monitor should be fine.

My 19 inch x2gen mw19r monitor just went black its still on but wont display a picture so now im using my old tube monitor want to fix the x2gen


titter101, You left out telling us the "DATE of MANUFACTURE" for your unit. You will need to use CRT unit while researching info on x2gen mw19r unit. If unit out of warranty, then you or qualified technician will need to do the investigation and repair of unit. Read the fixya profiles of "budmrtn" , "buddymc" , "12fixlouie" to see if a DIY repair will work for you. 12fixlouie

Screen goes dark after 1minute, power lite stays on


Possibly the lcd ccfl inverter. Ebay sells universal ones for 9 to 25 dollars each. Monitor repair knowledge needed to replace this part.
It could also be your external power supply if it is not OEM. Or if it failing under a load. If the picture is good when it is on, I always start looking at the power supply and the ccfl inverter/transformer. Please understand I am not an expert on LCD's I just seem to get lots of failing ones. ---Hope this helps.

My x2gen mw19r monitor keeps turning off i will hit power on and it will show picture for one second then turn off then turn back on and keep doin that unless i hold the power button to off


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

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

Monitor shows picture for 1/2 second then goes black, 22" display. also will not show display menus. have hooked another monitor up and works fine. also have hooked up to another computor and problem...


When you switch the monitors, do you still use the very same vga cable? If you don't, then it's time to change the monitor. When it turns on and off inmediately it means that it's receiving the signal, but that's it. If it's brand new, exchange it.

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.

X2Gen MW19R picture goes out after 5-20 sec.


Hey...Dude,

First of all inspecting all the caps closely...see if any caps has a stress mark like a pluffed on top. Those with a pluffed replaced with the same type of voltages that mark on the side of a caps. Those with no pluffed need to tested with ESR meter to see any leaked. If it leaked replaced those too...
Have fun!

X2gen MW19R user manual


Maybe they put more volts on it, because of the cable length. About putting the manual on Fixya. I do not know how you would do that. I know that you can have a little more volts and be okay but not enough is bad. Are you sure it is the correct cord?
