If it is still under warranty and faulty, then send it back. It does not sound like a do it yourself task.

My monitor has gotten really dark. How to fix?


Try another monitor on your computer. If the other monitor works fine, then you know the video card is good and the monitor is definitely bad.

If the monitor is the culprit then the only option is to replace it because that would mean the screen itself is going bad and there is no replacement screen for that monitor.

Monitor doesnt turn on


Hello

Please try an external monitor. This will tell you if the laptop circuitry or screen has gone bad. Either way it'll have to be sent to a repair company like mine or taken to a local service person.

Monitor TFT 5015 now says "going to sleep


Make sure the laptop's external VGA port is turned on. There will be a function key somewhere on the keyboard (location varies by manufacturer and model) that controls the connector. If the connector has gotten turned off the external monitor will go to sleep because it's not getting any input.

HP dv9000 won't come out of black screen.


You could have a faulty video card, or a faulty inverter, (this supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp), or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

If you see a very dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

A line appears across my screen on my medion laptop


Perhaps your monitor is faulty. You should check it out at a repair store. Also, if you have a VGA connector for an external monitor, try with that. If the lines are gone, that means your monitor is faulty.

be sure to circle through possible screen.
use FN key + a key with a screen symbol on your keyboard (or check your doc) to switch from main screen to external monitor and back.
sometime some techies use external monitor for pc final test and forgot to restore configuration to laptop screen.
At restart XP is expecting the last used monitor and nothing shows on laptop screen.
try also connecting any external monitor to vga plug.
let me know if is fixing

FPD1975W 19" screen went out.


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. BLUE POWER BUTTON WOULD TURN ON-OFF-ON-OFF WHILE THE SCREEN FLASHED. THEN AFTER UNPLUGGING IT THE SCREEN WOULD FLICKER. THEN JUST WOULDN'T COME ON. GO ON EBAY FIND SELLER BAMMBAMMFRAN OR SEARCH FOR YOUR MONITOR. HE SELLS A PRODUCT REPAIR FOR $30(NOT INCLUDING SHIPPING). I SENT MY BOARD TO HIM. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR MONITOR APART AND SEND HIM THE INVERTER BOARD OR THE WHOLE MONITOR, ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THE SHIPPING COST. HE WILL LET YOU KNOW IF IT IS FIXABLE(THE INVERTER BOARD). IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY HE ONLY CHARGES IF IT IS FIXABLE. I TOOK MINE APART AND SHIPPED THE BOARD TO HIM. HE FIXED IT AND SENT IT BACK TO ME. MY MONITOR WORKS GREAT.

No display


Hi SimonRankin,

Most laptops have an option to switch between using the laptop's LCD screen, or a plugged in display with a VGA cable (Video Graphics Array, that Blue trapezoid connector cable).

Most often, it's Function + F8, although this varies between manufacturers and models. It should say "LCD/CRT" or have a small picture of a laptop versus an square with rounded edges.

If that doesn't do it, chances are you've managed to actually damage the on-board video card. Or potentially something worse. Try to get the external monitor to work, if that doesn't do it, I would say it should be sent back to a service center for more repairs.

Hope that helps.

CTX PCU monitor


A reputable computer or TV repair shop could probably fix it, but it will continue to be prone to failures due to its age. Also, the cost would likely be 70% (or more) of the cost of a new one.

I would recommend replacing it with a new one....you'd be pleased with a nice 17" LCD monitor...but if you're concerned about price...the CRT models are still a little cheaper.

Monitor repeatedly flashes Acer logo and computer display in cycles


We had the same problem with the 17" we bought in Aug. Sent it back for repair. Acer sent it back without fixing the problem. Started doing it again in Nov. This time I called a supervisor and they sent me a new monitor. Well yesterday it started doing the same thing. You can fix it temp buy unplugging it and holding down the on-off switch for 30 seconds. Please let me know if you have a better fix.
