That LCD monitor uses a fluorescent backlight, and the symptom you are seeing probably means the backlight is failing. There are two possible problems:
1) Likely: The inverter board is failing. The inverter creates the high voltage needed to run the backlight and can shut down after a short time if the board is failing.
2) Less likely: The fluorescent tubes themselves are failing. This usually requires replacing the whole LCD screen, although experienced technicians can disassemble the LCD screen and change the bulbs. This is much riskier.
The best bet is to replace the whole monitor. If you are willing to take apart the monitor and try a repair, you may be able to get an inverter and fix the problem.
Sellers on eBay usually carry a lot of models of inverters and may be able to sell you one and guide you through a replacement. However, this is a moderately advanced repair.

You'll need to adjust the refresh rate. I have recently written a tip on adjusting a monitor's refresh rate. I suggest you give it a read and let me know how it goes.

How can I fix an "Out of Range" display?

It means that your display card settings are too high for your monitor. Boot your system into safe mode (press F9 as it boots up) and set the display settings lower. Right mouse button click on an empty space on your desktop and go to properties. Then settings->advanced->Monitor and you should be able to adjust the vertical frequency down to 60hz or 72hz. If you get the out of range message on boot up then you will need to try out a different screen on your system, boot into Windows, change the settings and then plug in your original monitor.

How can I fix an "Out of Range" display?

Please reduce display resolution of computer/ laptop to solve "out of range" error because laptop is producing high resolution video signal and monitor hardware is unable to show that much higher display resolution so causing that error message.
Let me know what Windows version (XP, Vista, 7) is running in laptop to provide you more info or check Display Properties in control panel and change it to lower resolution to get picture in monitor.

I want to use Trutech 19" tv as computer monitor. Scrreen starts to set up and then get error message "Unsupported Mode." Is their a simple fix for this?

Hello Fayeburns,

Yes, there is a simple fix for it.

The reason why your TV is showing Unsupported Mode is because of the display resolution of your

graphics card, which is higher than what the TV can handle.
What you can try is, when your system is powered up, just go to your display settings, then

reduce the systems display resolution to--preferably 800x600 or 1024x768, then go to where you

normally select the output, and select 'Output to external monitor"...this should send the signal

input to the monitor.

In case it still doesn't work, just try and update your graphics card driver to the latest one and try

the same process again.
Most Laptop graphics display resolution are generally very powerful as compared to what the TVs

can handle.
Try this out and let me know how it goes.

Hope this helps.
Goodluck and thank you for using Fixya!

Swithcing from laptop screen to lcd monitor

Connect the monitor, flat panel, or projector to the laptop's 15-pin video connection on the back of the computer as shown to the right. Once connected, your laptop may automatically switch to the new external display or you may be required to press a sequence of keys in order to switch from the laptop to the external display. video.gif For example, often either Fn + F3, Fn + F5, Fn + F8, or Fn + F9 is pressed to switch between alternate displays. So if your laptop was Fn + F3, pressing and holding both Fn and F3 at the same time would switch between displays. Often, the alternate key pressed in conjunction with the Fn key will be labeled as CRT/LCD and/or have a picture of a monitor on the key or close to the key. Unfortunately, the keys pressed to switch displays is dependent on the model and manufacturer of the laptop. If none of the above key sequences work, consult your laptop documentation or consult your laptop manufacturer.
Some laptops also have the ability to have the display on both the laptop and external display and/or one or the other at a single time. Laptops with this ability can switch between these modes by continuing to press the same function keys until in the mode the user wants.
