Question about Proview PL913B 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
"IF YOU HAVE THE ON FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN OFF PROBLEM, DONT REPLACE ANYTHING UNTILL YOU HAVE TRIED THIS" hey guys i have the 2second problem aswell but!, i was just about to throw mines away when i can stumbled across away how to get it working proper again and again and again!. ive seen lots of help pages like this where everyone is talkin about replacing parts, but if u screen flicks on and then off it should work with my quick fix. heres how and i hope it works for you. Boot up ur pc as u would usually and wait awhile untill you think everything has loaded up or has reached the logon stage. Then if you look carefully at ur screen and press the menu button you should be able to see it thery faintly (i shine a lamp at it to see better). Then i cycle through OSD (on screen disply) menu using the up or down buttons on my monitor untill i see the "AUTO" option. at this stage i press MENU button "2 times" Then i cycle through the OSD untill i see the "RESET" option and again i press the MENU button to confirm the reset. Then simply press the power button to switch it off and then back on....HEY PRESTO! it working again. I have told 11 people this fix and they all reported back that it works for them 2. this method should work every time aslong as you stiil can see the green LED on ur monitor.

Found a 470uf @25V Electrolytic capicator vented (top bulged) in power supply. Although in my case this was the only one bad, all of the electrolytics in the D.C. power supply should be checked for tolerance and e.s.r.

Replace all capacitors on these monitors, The MA-782ck is the same monitor only 17", same repair applys, The usual suspects are 6x470uf 25 volt 105 degrees and 1x220uf 25 volt 105 degrees caps but replacing all the caps tends to make it more reliable. Also lines and "funny graphics" on the screen can be caused by the thin cable that runs from the graphics card in the monitor to the lcd screen not being pushed in fully on both sides of the cable. hope this helps.

Hi i just got one of these monitors a few weeks ago from a friend with said same problem . i found that the electrolitic capacitors in the inverter had dryed out theres 4 in total in the inverter ( but i also changed all the electrolitics in the power suppy unit as well because the tops had started to bulge out for the extra few Cs its going to cost its worth it to do it even if they look ok if you can get them use Panasonic 105Deg ones result one nice monitor

From what you describe it sounds like you have eliminated the physical video card as a problem. I would try checking: -For a new video card driver. I?m skeptical this will fix your problem but it?s an easy way to eliminate one more variable. -Where the video cable plugs into the PC. Remove and check for bent pins, corrosion and replace and firmly reconnect using the thumbscrews on the connector. -Where the video cable plugs into the monitor. Some LCD monitors have removable cables some don?t; if yours does follow the same procedure outlined above. -Could be a problem with a connection inside the monitor. A quick test and perhaps even fix would be to grasp the right and left sides of your display while it is on (displaying the offensive lines) and gently twist like you were wringing out a towel. Again, and I emphasize, gently using only a couple of ounces of force. Watch to see if the lines disappear, get worse of make the screen flash or change. If you do then its likely cause is the connector from the LCD panel to the electronics has oxidation or a loose connection. If you?re lucky the flexing might even fix your problem, if not you will have to take it apart to find out exactly what is going on. Let us know if you have any more questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
