Question about BenQ FP731 17" LCD Monitor

3 Answers

Unexplained Blank screen.

I run a dual monitor setup for my modelling work, the BENQ FP731 is my secondary monitor, and when i first set it up, it was working perfectly. When i started up my PC today, the of the BENQ was blank. the power is on, the light next to the pwoer button is green, the cables are working and both ports in my gfx card are working, i tested the other connections with my other monitor. the screen isnt exactly blank, i can barely see the BENQ logo when i start it up, it looks as though the brightness was completely turned down but i cant see the menu, or even if its coming up. Is there a way to reset all the settings? or another way to fix this problem?

Looks like your Power Supply has gone Kaput .. Usually it is the Electrolytic Capacitors on the Power Supply Board, try a new one, or replace ALL the Electros with same or better ones.

My benq monitor worked for a couple of years then one day it just stopped. FP731 17". I get the green power light but nothing on the screen. Hooked up a different monitor to the computer and it works...


It is almost the same as DELL monitor (BenQ makes monitors for Dell and HP), so look for shorted transistors, cold solder joint, fuse.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please 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 DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I RECENTLY STARTED USING BENQ MONITOR & NOW I HAVE IRRITATION ON MY EYES. WILL THERE BE ANY RADIATION FROM BENQ MONITORS


There's practically no radiation from LCD monitors, especially compared to older CRT monitors, which radiated several sorts of electromagnetic waves.

Is the picture on your monitor crisp, with good focus? If the letters and shapes are blurry, it may mean that you are using a different screen resolution than the native resolution of your LCD.
If your monitor type is FP731, then it's native resolution is 1280x1024 and this is what should be set in the Display Properties under Settings tab (in Windows). If it's a different model, you can search for it's specs on the web to see what is it's native (a.k.a. optimum) resolution.

Please rate and possibly leave a testimonial if helped.

Black out problem


Try a different known working monitor and hook it up to the computer. Turn on the computer and the monitor and see if you can get video. If you get video then you know the original monitor is bad.

If with the known good working monitor you still don't get video then you know its something either with the video card or the motherboard if you have integrated video.

Black out


Connect it to another PC, if you get the same result, the problem is the backlight, they go all of the time. I am constantly repairing these things in stores.
