The inverter power supply goes bad all the time on that unit. Go to www.lcdrepair.us they have instruction videos on opening the monitor as well as sell parts for that unit.

My monitor Chimei CMV 946A gets 2 sec. picture but then went black. power still on


Excuse me but your descripton is not clear enough. Do you get ALWAYS 2 seconds of picture and then your monitor goes black or it went black after 2 seconds and you never more got a screen

In any case, ask help from a friend, letting you to connect your monitor to another computer. Would pinpoint problem and discard eventual video card issue.

My monitor dont work anymore but when i charge it ..the charge light light up...and when it fully charge it turn green but still dont come on.. no water in or i didnt drop it help me


probably back light is out. Look closely at screen and see if you can see a faint image on screen (hard to see if no light behind to shine though, so look close).

Screen went black faint images


Hello,
If the screen went black and you can still see faint images of what your computer is currently showing, the typical issue would be a burnt out backlight. For the repair cost, I'd say just invest in a new monitor.
Just to cover the bases, make sure your brightness and contrast settings on the LCD are not set to zero.
Regards, Chris

I have a viewsonic LCD VX2235 and it just went black. It switches from the green light to amber light with no picture but you can see a faint flicker in the background. Please help


Look for bad caps with bulging tops as shown in my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Viewsonic%20VX2235W/
They should be replaced as a set (6 black cases, 2 brown cases). Use PANASONIC FM or F series from Digikey.
Please post back what you find.

Westinghouse 22 lcd monitor. faint click and went


More likely the filter caps failed and may have taken out the inverter fuse and the MOSFET in the inverter circuits also. yoo need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Backlight Fizzle


Look at the power supply first for bad caps, the transistors for back light inverter may have been damaged also when the caps went out. See example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Screen comes on then goes out in 5 seconds. The backlight goes dark but the seen is working, just can't see it. The backlight is out...


mark587, Did you shine a very bright flashlight 1" from the screen to try and see the WIN-desktop ?? Even though the screen appears BLACK. Your words above said: JUST CAN'T SEE IT Did you really NOT see anything? Have you seen any of the longer video clips of "LCD Monitor Disassembly" on YOUTUBE? Some BLACK screen "symptom" lcd displays can be repaired for less than $10 in parts. Capacitors! Also check videos on lcd repair. Then get back here to fixya and I or any of the guys can help you decide what to do with your display whoose screen is now dark and lifeless. After doing the YOUTUBE thing you may even tell us what you will do!!! Hope this was helpful. Yes we do want to hear back from you. please rate this response on fixya. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com. Bye for now.

My monitor do not work right


Are you saying that you can faintly see your desktop or just the reflection of your desktop??
if you are saying you can faintly see your desktop it means that the fluorescent light isn't firing up properly, take it to a repairman or if its under warranty, take it back for a swap or a refund.

Two problems vx922 Black screen of Death and vx910 no power


You may want to tey another computer or another cable or update your video card drivers. Otherwise look very closely and see if you are able to see a very faint image of your background picture or icons if you have any.

Really im not kidding it might be a backlight issue.
