An upside down display is caused by unintentional pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key.
Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key.
ALSO
If the display is sideways then to change the display from portrait to landscape
Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key.

Some computers do not have this function.

Benq fp581 screen goes blank after about half a second evertime i turn on my computer.


Even thought the monitor looks blank check to see if you can see a faint image (shining a flashlight at the monitor sometimes helps). If you can see an image it could mean that the inverter board has gone bad.

I have also heard of an overheated computer causing a similar problem.

Had the same problem recently with a Benq FP71G+. It was still under warranty so I called customer care and they sent someone who replaced the board inside that contained all the buttons. I saw that the board was very easy to remove. He just unplugged it, and plugged in the new one. And its a very small board so probably doesn't cost much in case your monitor's warranty period has expired.

Monitor Randomly Turns Black


I have exactly the same problem with my Benq FP71E+ ..

What i found is a temp fix is this :

When monitor dims and goes black i turn it off , hit the bottom left side (near the BENQ logo) turn it on again and it works ..

This works every time for me . But after a while it switches off again , could be 5 minutes could be 5 hours . Its random

LCD Screen problem


You have a failed inverter circuit. This is a very common fault with BenQ and other LCD monitors. I have seen more FP737 and FP731's and all their cousins in the last 2 years then I care to count.

You will be best to take it to a TV technician and have them do the repair. There are ways to fix it yourself, but the chances of success are not great without a decent amount of electronic knowledge.

Call several places and get approx quotes based on the inverter fault. A lot of TV techs will not work on LCD monitors and is another good reason to call around first.

One final thing, check the manufacture date on the back of the monitor, these normally come with a 3 year warranty and it will be either expired now, or very close to it. If it is still under warranty, then contact BenQ near you to facilitate the repairs.

Connect it to another device, if you get the same result the backlight is bad! These can be replaced, but can be costly!
