Question about BenQ FP71E+ (Black, Silver) (Silver, Black) 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

The picture disapears, though the monitors stays on - every few seconds

My problem is as follows: the picture won't stay more than a few seconds. i turn on the computer, windows is coming up, and after a period of time between 2 seconds to 2 minutes, the screen suddenly turn a little darker for a second, then turns off. the monitor is still on, the light on it is blue. when i try to turn it off and then on again, it does show the picture for a few seconds again, then again, turns darker for a brief moment and then off. i would also note that every time the computer starts, the monitor gives me the "out of range" meesage" although my screen refresh rate is set to 60HZ and 1024*768 32bit, which are supported supported according the the manual.. thank you Amir

Picture won't display after a few seconds

this is either the flourescent bulbs are going out or the power supply has bad capactors on it. You might open it up and look at the power supply board for capacitors with their ends that look like they are "erupting" on the ends.. this means they need to be replaced.

The picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer or service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Monitor wont stay on- blue light is on. but screen keeps going blank.

Have you tried the monitor on another computer? If so, and it works, the issue is with your graphics settings on your computer. LCD and plasma based monitors often come with a protection circuit that disables the monitor if the synch or refresh rate are beyond it's capabilities. this is to protect your monitor from damage.

Do not exceed your monitor's max resolution.
Resolution is determined the following way:

Width x Height @ Refresh Rate
For your model:
  • Max Resolution 1440 x 900 @ 75Hz
More detailed information about your monitor can be found HERE. If your monitor is still under warranty, and you find it to be faulty, you may be able to send it to the manufacturer for repairs.

Monitor screen picture won't stay on for longer than a second

I had the same problem with my eMachine t3418. Site advisor Micromend suggested changing the power supply to more wattage. Very much recommend doing that. I did but it didn't fix the problem. Micromend also advised trying a video card. I bought a cheap vid card and installed it. It worked. Apparently MY problem was in the motherboard and the vid card worked around that. Much cheaper than replacing the computer. I'm NOT a tech. Just sharing my experience with what worked for me. I you have a laptop or a friend does, hook your monitor to it to test that it's okay first though.
