    Hello, i have the same problem. no lines though. one day, the monitor just decided to shut off, and the led power light started flashing. no picture. cant turn it on or off with the power button. the only thing i can do is unplug it. if someone has a suggestion other then throwing it out the window, please. i would love to hear it. i wouldnt want to send it in to fix it because im sure it costs the same amount as buying a new one. also, i am absolutely ignorant about anything electronics, im an electrician not a computer girl. so whatever your suggestion, im sure i wouldnt be the only one to appreciate you holding my hand through it all. thank you in advance.

    I think I have the same problem... its two years old.. a MA982KC-900P... used pretty much on a daily basis... the problem first started that the image on the screen was shaky... the entire screen... everything would move back and forth very slightly... just for a few minutes at a time .. almost as if you had too much too drink and you were trying to focus... it didnt happen all the time.. just once in a while... then it progressed to when the computer is first lit up, the screen would come on as just bright white... and it would have to warm up for about 5 minutes... turn it off and on again and then it would be fine until turned off again over night... now when it is first lit up there is a black screen and no amount of turning it on or off makes a difference until it has sat on for about 10 minutes... then it changes to bright white... and if you turn it off and on you vaguely get the screen image until it transforms to all white again... only after sitting as white for 10 minutes can you turn it off and on again and there is no more problems as long as it is left on... so its anywhere from 20-30 minutes to get it up and running... its taken about 3 - 4 weeks to get to this point from the first time it had the all-white problem..

    thanks!

    I had the same problem that was described below. I have the same monitor except it's black.



    My monitor was doing the same thing almost. Their was a fuzzy border down both sides of the screen with faint black line across it. The problem had existed for nearly a month. It almost seemed like it needed to be 'degossed' (spelling?), like old computers that we had in high school. (I'm just assuming that only old monitors had that button because this one does not.) Anyhow, I messed with the controls on it and that didn't work. Then, I unplugged the cable from the back of the computer and blew it out, still there was no improvement.



    After read the solution I unplugged the cable and their were no bent prongs. So, I blew it out again like you would a Nintendo game and plugged it back in. Then, I unplugged the cable from the back of the monitor (the cord is removable on this Proview model) and did the same thing.



    I turned it on, and boom: Fixya! So, in this case, the true source of the problem was the way the cable was plugged into the back of the monitor.



    Thanks for the help!

    It seems to look like kind of

    but i don't know if you can help me with this problem



    I don’t know what has happened to my monitor. Last time when I use the monitor was working fine but later on it not working properly. When I put it on it only last for about 3-5 seconds then the light goes off but I can still see the image in harder condition which means everything is just very dark. Every time I put it off then back on, it keeping doing the same things so please help me because I really like this monitor I don’t want to get another one how can I fix this problem or where can I take it for repair

"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.

    Thank you very much, CurtisF08. I can confirm that this hack is still working as of April 2018. A small miracle; I thought my beautiful (10-year-old) MA-982K was a gonner.

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.

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.

ProView 19" Flat Screen Monitor comes on with


Hello,

The dark or black picture is caused by a failure in the back light power supply. The problem can be corrected by replacing a few parts called capacitors on the board. Replacing them will require a little soldering but anyone can do it. Here is a link to a page that shows what needs to be replaced.

My proview 558 monitor has a 1/2 inch black line at the bottom


ms_biguns, You need to test one or the other, The tower should output and drive a substitute known good monitor, or a known good pc should be able to display the WIN-desktop screen on your Proview 558. Could it also be that the software in pc not set up for driving a Proview558? 12fixlouie

I did it just because the higher voltage caps would give a lower heat dissipation thus leading to a longer life this time around.

Monitor doesn't stay on.


Your problem seems to point to your video card. Your video card needs a driver to function. Odds are good that you need to install a video card. Avoid using the built-in Windows driver. A new video card has a CD with it. Use that. With your driver installed, configure your display settings. The Display applet on the Control Panel is your next step. The Display applet provides a convenient central location for all of your display settings. Go there and make your setting using the tabs.
You can crash Windows and force a reinstall simply by installing a new video card and not uninstalling the old card's drivers. Always uninstall the old card's drivers before you install drivers for a new card.
