Question about ASUS MNTR ASUS| LCD 19' 5MS VW193D RT Monitor

5 Answers

My monitor turns black automatically after about 3 seconds. Removing the power cord doesn't work. Resetting the settings doesn't work. Turning it off and on again will make it work for 3 seconds again. I'm guessing it's old/broken or just getting hot but it doesn't feel hot. Any ideas?

LCD monitor? More than 2 years old?
If yes, then read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

    Thank you very much bud! A friend of mine suggested it is simply cheaper to buy a new one than to fix the old monitor does that sound right to you or does the broken part make a big difference or is it mostly your own time and labor? Thanks again very helpful! Let me know if you have any dental questions :)

    To have it repaired will not be worth it since it can be around $100, to DIY you will need to spend money on tools. I would suggest you to give it to some kids that are learning electronics so they can learn about troubleshooting electronics, and also give them my links so they will know what to look for inside the monitor.

Try another Cord/Charger to verify the Cord, AC jack. If you plug in the AC cord after starting on battery, does the battery charge? Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust Advanced power setting to your preference.

Our hp L1740 LCD monitor was no display and no power indicator at all.


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

Your monitor is having a power fault because it is not switching on. The monitor might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

First, remove the unit's power cord from the wall, wait for about 30mins, then plug it back in. If it doesn't power on, plug it into another outlet, to make sure there electric current entering into the rmonitor.

If plugging into another power outlet doesn't power it on then it confirms that the receiver is having a power fault.

When electric current comes from the power outlet into the monitor, it goes straight into the power supply board which then circulates the current into the unit. So if the monitor doesn't power on, the first thing is to make sure there is power entering into the monitor.

So check the power cord, if it is a 3-pin plug, it must have a fuse in it. check the fuse if it is not blown. if fuse is intact, then power supply board should be checked.

This unit must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the unit turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter and continuity tester in order to read the components on the power board. Once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect and solve the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

Regards.

Tmy monitor shows the images only for 20 seconds, then it turns black.


Hi hope your monitor issue has resolved. I would suspect the problem is a hardware issue then a software setting. Since the monitor is over three and half years old, if your monitor is a LCD with CCFL back light and had been used almost every day, there may be 3 possible hardware issues. First is the internal power supply, that can go wrong due to heating problem within the monitor, this problem usually cause the monitor to display poor quality picture and may show interference lines on screen prior failure. Secondly, it may be the inverter that drives the back light, which may fail due to the safety circuit kicks in, because it involves with high voltages. Thirdly it may be the backlight itself, which is like most compact CCFL energy saving lamps that flickers or turn itself off when it reaches the end of its service life. This problem usually caused the monitor to show redness or yellowness images prior failure.

All of these can be resolved by qualified electronic repairers, all the best.

My monitor goes for 3 seconds black, every 1 minute


First thing, try to connect the monitor to another CPU and see if its gonna work. If it doesn't, then this might be a capacitor failure. One of the capacitors in your monitor that are responsible for holding up power for proper display is faulty. A faulty capacitor is either bulged(with a hump head) or burst. This causes the monitor to go off a few seconds after you switch it on because the capacitors can no longer hold power long enough for your display. One way to work this around is to take your monitor to a Computer Technician to open it up and probably replace the faulty capacitors

My Lexmark z2300 sends to the printer & it says it's printing, but it doesn't actually print. I've tried several file types & programs to print from but none of them work.


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

I have a Samsung syncmaster 2233ws monitor every time I turn my monitor on it stays on for about 2 to 3 seconds and then it goes black I checked all of the capasitors on the mother board and they all...


I would still lean toward the computer being the issue. A lot of newer monitors will pop up something like "no signal" for 2-3 seconds and then enter power saving mode by default. If your getting at least this for a few seconds I would say the computer isn't working. Please note a computer can still have fans and lights going and still be bad. If you have lights and/or fans going I would start by replacing the power supply on the computer.
The easiest thing to do to narrow a problem down is rule out as much as you can. For the monitor if you have another computer, laptop or a friends laptop hook up the monitor to it and test. Monitor works then you have narrowed your issue to your computer. If the monitor still isn't working (you need to toggle the display generally on laptops [fn + F7] usually) then you know its the monitor.
By the way Samsung generally has a 5 year warranty on monitors.
If you have ruled out the monitor and power supply I would then try the following
  • If you have a dedicated graphics card, remove it and plug monitor into on-board video. If it works you know its the graphics card if it doesn't then it's most likely your motherboard.
  • Also can try completely unplugging the computer (pull power cord for 30 seconds) computers don't really turn all they way off usually they sit in S5 power mode)
  • Can also try pulling (if you have more than 1 stick of ram) pull all but one out and try powering on, repeat for each stick until it works. I have seen bad memory prevent computers from booting

Reset the router


1. On the back of your router there is a little black reset button. Use a pen or paper clip and press down for 10 seconds. Make sure the lights on the router stop blinking for one second. Release the button and make sure to reset your wireless security and network ID.
2. If that doesn't work just unplug your routers power cord. This is the easiest way to reset your internet connection without resetting your router to factory settings.
3. If neither of those work, unplug the power cord of your modem. This will completely reset the internet connection without resetting the routers settings.

I switch on my PC, ensuring that all cables, leads and power supplies are connected properly. The tower powers up no problems at all. I switch the screen on, the green led lights up, the screen is completely black. A blue box appears centrally on the screen with the text 'power saving mode'. The green led light turns amber and then the screen just goes black.
