Try unplugging it from the electrical outlet for about 25 seconds. Then plug it back in and go to your settings if the power button turns the monitor back on if it does not work try it on another working computer. Sometimes this happens when the settings are two high of resolution when your graphics card cannot handle it. Hopefully the issue is not the monitor going bad. Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi kellbro1,
You're problem is not in the settings but in fact there's a three major parts involved for fault. First is your back light, second is your inverter board, third is your power supply. I've suspect that you're inverter board or its power supply caused this problem. If you have necessary tools and test instrument, know safety precaution in basic troubleshooting you may isolate the trouble. You have to test the inverter board by loading a two car bulb in series with it. Constant glow of light means you have a good inverter board and the backlight(lamp) need to be replaced, irregular glow of light means that you have a faulty inverter board.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

During setup, got a "INput not supported" message

Reboot the computer and enter into Safe Mode through pressing F8 repeatedly on the keyboard.

If Windows will not come up, then you have to access the system through system restore.

In windows xp, it's c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

In windows vista, it's c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

This is done through Safe Mode with command prompt or command prompt; depending on the operating system.

Monitor times out and wont come back on.

Try this settings:
  • Click on Start | Control Panel | Power Options.
  • In the Power Option properties window, click on the Power Schemes Tab
  • Set the Turn off Monitor/ Turn off Hard Disks option when on Power (and also Battery for laptop users) to Never.
  • Now click on the Save as... button and assign a name to this power scheme... Let us call it 'Presentation' and then click on OK.
  • That's it congrats!

    My old monitor says "frequency out of range" on my new desktop.

    No Worries,

    What you are experiencing is a frequent occurrence when monitors are upgraded, switched, whatever. Computers don't always recognize monitors as 'Plug n Play' devices. When you switch them out, the change may not be noticed.

    What you are looking for is the 'Refresh Rate'.

    Put the old (or new, which ever worked last) monitor back on and reboot. The screen should come up normally
    • Right Click the Desktop
    • Click Properties
    • Click Settings
    • Click Advanced
    • Click Monitor
    • Lower the refresh rate or set at optimal
    • Check the box 'Hide refresh rates this monitor can't display'
    Shutdown, Switch back and try it now.

    If it gives you any problems at all, comment me back. I'll walk through it with you.

    Good luck

    Wont work with new computer

    Since this was a new out of the box computer, Safe Mode was not allowed. In order to change monitor settings (resolution), I had to use another monitor, in this case a newer CRT. With the CRT, the computer booted up, no problem. Once booted, I turned down the monitor resolution and saved. Now when the Princeton LCD was plugged in and the computer restarted, everything works fine. Now the resolution could be set to limits of the monitor.

    15inches monitor troubleshooting

    Hi Rachel,
    The old monitor was set to a resoloution that is higher then you current monitor can handle. This is normally the case when changing from a CRT to an LCD

    Try this:
    Unplug the video cable from the back of your computer.
    Start the computer and wait for about 2 minutes.
    Press the power button on the front of the computer just once. This will **** it back down safely again.
    Plug the video cable back in, then restart the computer with the monitor turned on.

    If this dosn't work then try this:
    1. Turn the computer on (have the monitor already powered up)
    2. When the computers bios/splash page goes away begin to press F8
    3. You should get a Windows Startup options page.
    4. If you see the WIndows Logo you normally see when it loads, just hit the reset button and try again.
    5. In the Windows Startup page, select Safe Mode and press enter twice
    6. Windows will now load.
    7. On the desktop right click anywhere there is nothing.
    8. Select Display Properties, a new window will open
    9. Select the last tab at the top of the window (properties)
    10. You will see a slider on the left side, move it to 800x600, select apply, then close the box.
    11. Restart Windows.
    If that fails, then please post back and we can try something else.
