Question about LG Computer Monitors

1 Answer

W2600h We have a w2600h. this is our second monitor. We returned the first because we could not make it look good. the second monitor looks the same. We have had 2 IT people try to fix the problem. Used your drivers. Even tried a Spyder2Pro color correction. We have attacted it to different computers with different graphic cards. the color is bad. The colors are faded - pastels where there should not be pastels. the Windows start button and menu bars are faded and pale.

Sounds like the brightness is too high and the contrast is too low, which isn't a color calibration problem. Try these resources:

One here.

Another very good one here.

It may just be that the monitor is cheap and the backlight is washing it out, if the able calibration techniques don't help it sounds like you may need to buy a pricer monitor to meet your requirements.

Display not working, power button LED turns on blue for 1 second and won't turn on again


Have you tried checking with another monitor. Meaning that if the second monitor does not come on then the problem is with your computers mother board. But if the monitor other monitor you check it with comes on then of course it is your monitor.

Monitor keeps going to sleep


Hi,

This issue is related to the Video cable. Better check its connection. Unplug/replug it to both computer and the monitor. If this doesn't work, then you need to replace it.

AOC LM725 LCD Monitor


try looking for bloated caps, check all diodes... see if its not shorted/leaking and finally check the power regulator ic if its not shorted! note: some capacitors and diodes are very tiny, you should use a lens with good amount of light...



if it does not help..... well, what the hell? try pouring some gas, then light it up! that should solve the problem, at least it turned on right? hehehehe!

Ref monitor


Hi,

Yes, after looking around this seems to be a common issue with this monitor. You can try re-setting it to factory settings.

Acer monitor too bright,,


Give it to me? Just kidding. The Monitor controls are the only thing to adjust the monitor's brightness, zoom, etc. I took a look on the net to see if there was such a program to control it from your PC but there is not. so if you can't get used to that monitors brightness, I suggest you return it to the store before you can't. You probably can't cause you wrote this back in may. So you might want to sell that on Ebay or craigslist or something if you can't return it.

Monitor Display Problem.


The first Polyview has a power supply problem (a short) and locks out the power until it is unplugged. You need to check the voltages inside the Monitor to determine which component/s are faulty. I hope you know electronics if not leave it to the repair shop because you have neither the skills or equipment to repair it. By the way I am not a monitor repair man but I do have 30 plus years in the electronics field.
The second monitor may have a broken wire in the cord that goes to your computer. Other internal components can cause the same simptoms your seeing. Good luck!

LG Flatron 775FT monitor distortion


Doesn't look very good :( You can try returning to the "factory settings" in your monitor's menu. Maybe try the monitor in another computer to check whether your graphics card is faulty. But all in all it looks like a fault from the monitor :( Good Luck!

Acer AL1714 17" LCD Monitor Good Power supply no power on monitor


Hello, I have to same problem. I returned my monitor to Acer but got it back unrepaired, they could not see the malfunction. But I kept on sending it back, until I got a new model. Now after 2 years I get the same thing with this monitor. But there's no warranty anymore, so I looked into the problem myself. I found out that inside the powercircuit board is connected to the mainboard through a 10pin connector. The 5 pins that are on the lowest row, show a trace of white powder, I suppose occidation. I sprayed a little of contactspray in it. I must say the problem is not gone, but much better. The problem shows not so frequent anymore and lasts not so long. At first the screen switched of for 3 to 5 minutes and came back on. Now the screen is gone for perhaps 1 second and returns. So I'm almost convinced the problem has something to do with the connection of the powercircuitboard inside and the mainboard inside, when the monitor heats up a bad connection occurs due to occidation of the 10 pin connector. If you find a solution that fixes the problem 100% let me know, please. Mario.
