Question about MPC Computers Envision EN 7100s 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Thanx for the advice

It is an older LCD. i thought that the LCD itself might be going out. i read something about "20,000 hours of use" or something like that. i am pretty good with computers in general. I'll put it this way. im a poor white kid and i put all my extra money into this. i have a 9800GTX right now and a F#&#ING CRT! so i found that flat panel for 50$. not a huge loss. also wanna say that the that there is no VGA plug on the flat panel itself. already had the whole thing apart looking for a loose connections or a "bent over pin". didn't find anything. another thing that i thought that it might be that i have not confirmed is that i am using a 12v 2amp PSU. it requires a 12v 3.5amp. i haven't been able to find a site or forum that confirms that i need that other 1.5 amp. i don't think that is the problem just because it DOES come on for half a second then goes black! now that you have a little more info about the problem and know that im not a noob at this, by all means let me know if you have any other ideas.

Are you using a vga to dvi adapter then? Even though this usually is not an issue with older flat panels I have seen this problem where only a dvi to dvi will work. Secondly, If the panel calls for those extra amps you do need them and a replacement power brick will cost more than you spent. Radio Shack sells a constant demand 12v power supply that will feed your monitor what it demands when it demands it, but that unit (and I have one for field diagnostics) sells for nearly $40. If you go that or any other route the boiler plate on the back of the panel should tell you whether the outside of the power adapter is positive or negative and what size the plug should be. At Radio Shack they sell this power supply with no plugs, they supply you with a plug based on your need at time of sale, so if you go that route take your panel with you. The only other suggestion on a power brick is to go through Ebay, and take nothing less than a 7 day DOA warranty and check the brick out on arrival and if it is dead seek remedy right away. There are plenty of vendors on Ebay who sell these items and know what they are doing. If they take phone calls its worth the effort to phone them before buying.

In conclusion, I believe you need a dvi out from your display adapter to you dvi in on the panel and a power brick that feeds the monster the power amps it wants which are heavy at power on. Since you state your poor on funds you might try to off load this thing and shop Ebay for a more versatile flat panel for about the same price you paid for this thing you own now. Make sure you get a power brick with the purchase price included. And, btw, a 15" panel is just fine and cheap on Ebay.

Hope that helps you, but sorry for the basically bad news.

Polaroid 37 inch lcd will work for about an hour then only display colored vertical lines...still has sound though, tv was given to me I build pc's so a fix is not out of the question, but is it worth it?...


That can be the T-CON board, main board that send the LVDS to the T-CON, worst case will be the screen itself. You can try reseating the ribbon cables between the LCD panel and the T-CON board to see if it help first. Post back what you find.
See example of bad T-CON/LCD screen in my guide.

Picture green with color off mo.av-56p575 jvc


That is a common symptom in projection TVs that use tubes or "color guns" As the set ages the emission in the picture tubes (there are three) begins to slowly fade.

This is unfortunately a normal thing for those older projection sets. A set of tubes will last anywhere from 20,000 to 40,000 hours of operation then they are simply worn out. They can be replaced but I don't recommend it due to the age and technology version of your set. The newer type big screens use a different principle. They either are LCD or Plasma these days. The advantage of the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is they are very low in power consumption. The disadvantage is that you can never get a true black, only close. On the other hand the Plasma TVs are more consumptive of power but will give a very sharp image with true black levels. The choice is up to you but I suggest you replace your older television.

Samsung le40r74bd problem


I just had this problem with my 3 year old 32" Samsung LCD. The volume would go up and down by itself, normally just constantly going up even when it reached 100%.

I thought it might have something to do with the volume buttons on the TV itself so seeing as it was out of warranty anyway I decided to unplug it and open it up.

I gave it a good clean and I disconnected the cable for the panel of buttons on the LCD itself (volume, menu, channel etc) seeing as I never use them anyway. I then put everything else back together and tested.

It seems to be working fine now. Previously (for the past 3 hours) ever time I turned it on the volume level would come on instantly and stay on until I turned the TV off. So I’m quietly confident the problem has been fixed. But I must admit it’s only been 10 minutes, so who knows, it might come back.

Broken LCD


Plasma television is on for 8 hours a day, its half-life would be about 9 years - or, if on 4 hours a day, the half-life would be about 18 years.
Keep in mind that a standard television loses about 30% of its brightness after about 20,000 hours. Since this process is very gradual, the consumer isn't aware of this effect, except for the need to periodically adjust the brightness and contrast controls to compensate.
Although the performance of individual Plasma TVs can vary, overall, as a product class, a Plasma television can deliver many years of acceptable viewing.

Hope that helps........

Older GE television sound trouble


The first thing to check is the push button assembly maybe the volume down button has been pushed in too hard/far and is always making contact,sometimes when we clean the face of the tube water drips down in thru the edge of the frame in the buttonts,corrosion sets in and creates a short,if you are familiar with tv service you can chech the buttons thru the inside to make sure they are not pushed in but if you are not famliar be safe and call for assistance froma servicer.
