Question about Proview PL926WBi 19" LCD Monitor

LCD display Proview

I have a 19' Proview LCD display. Recently it startet turning off by itself after working for 4-5 sec.We connected it to another pc and the display acted the same way - it worked for 4-5 sec, then it turns off. We have to press the on/off buton to turn it on, works for 4-5 sec and then goes black again. My Proview fv926W just did the same thing on May 22, 2008. I purchased the monitor April of 2007. I tried using it with my other desktop and it does the same thing. It starts up and goes black after about 5 seconds. The blue power light stays fully lit. If you turn the power button on and off it stays on for 5 seconds. The screen is pinkish when you first turn it on. Looks like we all got screwed on this one.

    I have the same problem. I took the monitor apart and cleaned the circuit boards using rubbing alcohol. Surprisingly, the monitor worked again apparently as normal for a couple of hours then went black. From then on it reverted to the initial fault mode of only working correctly for a few seconds after switch on.

    Our FV926W goes black for no apparent reason. After ten minutes approx. it will restart when awakened but goes black again within 15 - 30 seconds and will start each time the monitor off - on button is pressed but does not last for more than 5 - 10 seconds. Local Future Shop suggested it was my computer's fault and ti bring it in for service, however, I connected an older Samsung monitor I had and it works fine. So the Proview monitor is the culprit and a lost investment on my part. Do not see any practical repair possibilities
    on any website so far. Try another brand.

The power inverter is the problem and the only way to fix it is to replace the board. It was a poor design and my Proview 19" experienced the same screen issues as those previously stated. You'll pay $25 for shipping and up to $65 in repair costs. The kicker with Proview is the lousy 1 year warranty. I threw my Proview away and purchased a Hanspree 19" with a 3 year warranty.

There is a 3rd party repair facility in TX that specializes in this type of repair for a flat rate of $75 but that doesn't include your cost to ship and insure it. Another possibilty is to buy the invereter yourself and break open the back and replace it. If you can find the correct part it should run you about $35.

I rank Proview monitors in the same category as the Koss Home Theatre, which is JUNK!

If the screen is pinkish chances are the panel is defective.Should follow-up with Company Proview and do some correspondence.

Does my Proview PL926WBi 19

Any monitor will work with any computer provided the correct graphics card driver is installed. When you install Vista and you do not install the graphics driver, Windows will default to Generic VGA driver and you will not get the best resolution that the monitor can display.

Colored lines on screen

This may be caused by the death of a display driver circuit and these might be integrated with the display itself. 
The pixels on the screen are controlled by an X-Y matrix and the matrix may have signal lines that are somewhat shared for different screen positions.
I doubt that this is DIY project and the failure can only be located by an equipped and trained tech.

This is an inverter board problem. The inverter supplies the high voltage and frequency to run the CCFL backlights. The board has a sensing circuit to shut down the output if too much current is going to the backlights or it will shut down if the transistors overheat. I have replaced transistors on some boards with higher rated transistors and they have worked great for years. Sometimes it is just a cold solder joint on the inverter board. Replacement boards are expensive but not too difficult to replace. Repair requires some ability with electronic boards and should not be attempted if you do not posess the skill. You could end up damging other parts that cost more.

Monitor turns on then off.

I bought Same Monitor Dec. '06 and Jus last week It faded to black and then now doesn't power on. my protection plan sent me a new one that powered on for like 20 secs. So now I have another one coming. I also knows its not my PC cuz I'm using a monitor right now. I think Proview and Circuit City Sucks
