It can be cold solder joints, transistors, caps. Worst case will be lamp assembly (I do not run into bad lamp assemblies much in Dell monitors)
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), 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 DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Press the auto adjust button. If that does not work, boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 at computer boot. If this occurred after an update, roll back the driver on the display adapter.

How do I activate the sound for my monitor (CM2019). Our old speakers broke and I want to use the speakers in the monitor.


On the back of the monitor, look for a small jack with green color with the 'AUDIO INPUT', 'AUDIO LINE INPUT', then you will need an audio cable with mini stereo phone plug at each end (get it from Radio Shack). One end of the plug will go into the monitor AUDIO input (green), and another end will go into the PC AUDIO line out (Green jack) just like where your old PC speaker cable was plugged into. You need to set the volume level on your monitor to about mid point first and redjaut it later on.

How do I turn on monitor speakers


Hi Anonymous,

Typically, the speakers need to be plugged into the green audio port on the back of your computer, or use HDMI cable, if your system can use one.

Hp monitro speakers not working


Hi!

I think the sound drivers of your monitor may have got corrupted after formatting and hence you are facing the issue of speakers not working. Please try to rest the Monitor by turning off the monitor then press and hold the menu button and while you are still holding the menu button turn on the monitor and hold it still for 2 minutes. If the problem persists then you need to download the new drivers for your monitor from hp.com and install them to resolve the issue you are facing with.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

How to use speakers


If your monitor has built in speakers then there should be a small jack in the back, usually green in color. You would need to run an audio cable from the monitor to the proper jack on the back of your computer, usually the green color like on the monitor. Once connected you should be able to use the volume button on the monitor to adjust to your preference. But remember external speakers are usually a higher quality than those built in to the monitor. Hope this helps.

No audio in monitor internal speakers.


Make sure the cable that goes from the monitor to the computers green audio jack is connected.
Check that the monitors speakers are not muted(see if there is an option to do that by pressing certain buttons on the monitor) ,finally make sure the sound on the computer itself is not muted or too low.

Viewsonic VE175b Monitor Powers Up Doesn't Display Windows OS


Hi; I had the same problem. I know that sometimes devices require you to perform some type of '10-30 second' "hold" of one or some of its buttons in order to 'reset' the device, so to speak. So, having said that, try this:

1) Turn your monitor off (no green light) but leave it plugged in.
2) Leave it off for about 10 seconds.
3) Hold the [2] button on your monitor (the one to the immediate LEFT of your monitor's POWER button).
4) While holding the [2] button, now press and HOLD your POWER button.
5) Wait for your image to appear and STAY onscreen for about 5 seconds, then release both buttons.
6) Your monitor should retain its onscreen image.

Hope this helps! Good Day to all!

First of all, check if your audio cable are still plugged into the monitor and pc output (light green) audio jack. If not just plugged it back in... Still still got no sound... Then turned off the monitor and pc. Unplugged all the cables from the monitor and pc, wait for 10 second till all the surged built up are cleared out. Then you can plugged all the cables back Monitor should have 3 cables, a audio cable, a VGA or DVI cables, and a power cord... OK! now you got all the cables plugged back in...
Turned on the monitor and PC....and a few seconds....you should hear window started. Still... had a problems....just get a external speakers. Have nice day!

Installed new monitor, lost my sound


If your previous monitor had built in speakers and your new monitor does not you are going to have to purchase new speakers. If your new lcd monitor has an audio input you can purcahse a sterio mini jack cable for under $10 at any store that sells computer stuff (circuit city, best buy, walmart, target, etc). Simply plug one end into your monitor and the other end into your computers audio output jack (usually color coded green). Now of course if that monitor does not have built in speakers your only option is to purcahse a set of speakers for the computer. These usually start at around $15.
