Question about iiyama ProLite E481S-B 19" LCD Monitor

Iiyama ProLite E481S random shutdown

Hi,
Every now and then the monitor decides to turn itself off. The only thing I can do is wait a few hours and then it seems to work again. This does not seem to be related to temperature. Any ideas what might be going on? Is it time for a new monitor?
My e-mail address is andynic_nl@yahoo.com
Thankks for your help.
Andy

Hi,

If you're talking about a CRT that is going on "The Blink", yes this is where the name comes from. And this is becoming more and more of a problem you do indeed need a new monitor.

Three good places to shop online is :
newegg.com
zipzoomfly.com
tigerdirect.ca

Be certain what ever you buy is compatible with your current video display adapter. If your adapter has a VGA and a DVI socket than you can get either in a flat panel which is to say 60Watts vs 180 Watts in power consumption. The larger the flat panel the more power it consumes. More often than not, a 17 or 19" flat panel is more than sufficient. If you actually plan on sitting at your PC and watching movies go wider. If you are a hard core gamer go wider. Otherwise, a 17 or 19" monitor should serve you well.

    Oh, OK. This problem is much more common in CRT monitors. And I was wrong to assume you had one.

    The System is the same though. However, I have a question.
    Does your power cord have big block on it? If so, this would be the unit that's going on the blink, most likely.

    The power block has ratings on it for power outage, or these are posted on the back of your flat panel.

    You will want to call Iiyama and tell them of your problem. They can ask you for the power block, the monitor or both. Normally, these situations require you to pay shipping one way and they pay the shipping back to you. This is how its always been done. Still, some companies will send you a replacement first along with a shipping label for you to use in returning the old unit to them.

    Here is their phone number
    1(800)394-4335

    Let them know of our conversations and describe you situation completely. I'm sure they will work with you.

    Sorry, I don't have any good news for you. Would you mind changing your rating here to something better than 'Trying" we don't try we solve problems. Your problem requires you to speak with the flat panel monitor and get direct help in the form of replacement service, etc.

    Regards,

I can resolve that issue with a reset to factory settings.

2- Push on the MENU button and keep the button pushed while
pulling out the power cord.
3- Plug the power cord back while keeping the MENU button
pushed.

You should see the picture again.

Your welcome. I hope you get satisfaction and this problem is taken care of in your favor. In looking up the phone number for you to call, I noticed the price on this monitor, it is in the high range. Seems a shame a small part can take you down but it does happen. So, don't feel alone. Stick to your guns and don't give up until you get satisfaction from this company.

Thanks for boosting the rating. It mean a lot to us here. We don't get paid by the hour or anything like that. What we do, most of us have been doing for free for years. This site has a bright future as they pick up relationships with vendors. Tehre are certain requests, where we do get a token payment of four or six dollars. Most of us use this money on our own Power Computers to buy high end parts.

Again, good luck and you may ask for me anytime.

PC monitor wont come on.


Check that the power cord is fully plugged in first.

It is probably the inverter board inside the monitor.
(if the screen does properly display ever then it is not the screen)
It CAN be fixed but I do not suggest anyone open up a monitor (LCD or CRT) who is not "technically inclined."

If you really want to fix this particular one then take it to a local tech and get an estimate first. If it's almost as much as a new monitor then buy a new one.

I found this on another site:
[QUOTE=numbnutjas]I had the same problem along with lots of others who bought this great prolite monitor.

Whenever you turn the power off for more than five seconds the monitor looses an important bit of info of a hidden menu. Iilyama are not keen on publicizing the fact their monitor has a bug!

Follow these steps very carefully, it might not work the first time but it does work I promise.

Make sure that the moniter power button is off.

Unplug monitor from mains ( the auto exit button should flash red after about five seconds and you hear a popping sound.)

plug monitor back in mains.

hold down + and - on the monitor

now hold down power button on monitor

let go of power when power button when the green led lights up

let go of + and - buttons

wait a few seconds and press menu, a hidden menu will appear in the top right

use the + and - buttons to move the hilighted option over the auto colour option in the menu
push the menu button.


It does work, but if you have any problems: email at : miamoo2038 at hotmail dot co dot uk

Iiyama prolite e483s. no sound


Get a cable two male ends. Look for the female end on your screen. Put one male end into the port on on your screen and the other end into the port "AUDIO ONE" on your computer.

Try this it should work. The Multi-PIN cable is only for VIDEO, you need another cable for AUDIO.
