Question about Hitachi CML174SXWB (Carbon) 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Hitachi CML174SXW B randomly goes black

For the past 2 years, my monitor (Hitachi CML174SXW B) will just randomly goes black, but the green light is still on, and the only way I can get a picture to come back is to turn the monitor off, then back on.

When I first turn the monitor on in the morning, it comes on then after a few seconds it goes black, I will have to turn it off then on several times to get it to stay on, and several times throughout the day it will just go black and I will have to turn it off then on to get a picture. This is EXTREMELY frustrating. Other than that its a great monitor. I would appreciate any help for this problem.

    My solution was to buy a new monitor. It lasted a reasonable lifespan.

    Same issue, the condition has deteriorated to the point where it only stays on for seconds after I toggle the power or not at all. I've had the monitor for at least 5 years and I think I paid about $500 - I expected better than $100/yr =^(

Have you noticed if the monitor gets hot before it turns off?

Please, don't open a monitor and try to repair it yourself. It can be very dangerous and it's not worth getting injured.

Samsung SyncMaster 17" LCD Blacks out


If you have a second monitor, you could use your computer until the monitor goes black... then plug in a replacement monitor. My guess is that one will display black too...

My gut feeling is that your VGA card is on the fritz... I'm not convinced it's your monitor. Do you have a replacement VGA card you can try? I'll bet that'll take care of the problem.

Monitor goes black


If U can see the cursor then your monitor is fine, the culprit is your graphics card. It could be a virus, or a driver error. Try installing the drivers and check for viruses, if no help then Your graphic card is the most likely fault

Flashes on then goes black


The green light only lets you know there is a valid video signal reaching the monitor. If the green light was not "on" your problems would possibly be within the pc itself. Something is not holding the circuit for the backlight "on" thus going black. Suggestions are: 1. Take it to get it repaired (if not under warranty) Hyundai carries a 3 yr warranty on this monitor.
