F-417 is connected,has power, green light on, but on screen message says no signal. Monitor was working great until unplugged. Now am having to work off laptop screen until someone will be kind enough to help.
When troubleshooting another problem with this monitor i had it open and noticed that all thought this monitor has a "fixed video cord" once the unit is opened up it actually plugs in just like any normal video cable for a monitor. If the monitor video cable is the problem(bent pins, twisted to much, left kinked) then replacing it is an option. Simply open the monitor carefully(so as not to break any clips) and remove the EMI Shield. Once you do this you will be able to see where the video cable plugs into the monitor and replace it.

Re: Neovo F-417 failure
You may need to set your laptop to send the video signal to a secondary screen, this will be done by right clicking on the desktop and clicking on graphics properties.
Some laptops have a presentation mode on them it may well be there also.

Try unplugging the monitor from any video cables. Only have the power cable plugged into and then turn it on. You should see a message that indicates there is no video source. If you do not see this message then the monitor has failed, and you'll need to call it in on it's warranty. (If it is still under warranty.) To call neovo - the number is 866-333-3686.
If it is out of warranty - it's going to be cheaper to buy a new monitor.
If the video message that there is no signal does display, then try plugging the monitor in with a different video cable and see if that has any results. If not, try plugging the monitor into a different computer. If it works on a different computer, you may have a bad video port on the computer you are plugging the monitor into.
This means there is a hardware failure in the monitor that could be either blown CAPs or a shorted out inverter. It is difficult and dangerous to replace both of those(involving soldering and desoldering) if you don't know how as LCD's are made of a hazardous material. I would try new cables and on a different computer as a last resort and if that doesnt work then your monitor is trashed. If it works on another computer then the issue is not with your monitor. Good luck!
You may want to check the VIDEO cable that goes from the monitor to the computer. Make sure its in tight. If the montor still continues doing this, it could be caused either by A) a faulty monitor, or the monitor is going bad B) the video card inside the computer is going bad. If you have another monitor in the house, try it and see if you have the same problems. If you do it's most likely the video card inside the comptuer going bad. If you don't, then replace the monitor. Was the monitor plugged into a surge protector? Let me know how it turns out... THANKS
Are the settings on the video output correct? Is there a green or orange light illuminated. There is a difference between the Power LED and the Signal LED which is green. If you have no signal the LED will remain orange or yellow but not green. If the LED is green, then a signal is getting from the PC but not necessarily good. Check the signal with another monitor or TV if you can. Check the cable.
