Blank screen for 15-20 minutes at startup

Sorry if this has already been posted, but i need a answer quick... When ever i first start up my pc, turn on the screen... its a blank white screen.. .i've actually timed it it takes about 15 minutes, if you press off and then back on, the picture comes on just fine. If i restart its fine. Just at startup is when it shows the blank screen.... i hope this can be repaired with not such a big cost

    blank screen 15.20 min before it work?

  • Anonymous Nov 27, 2007

    I have exactly the same issue - its as if the monitor needs to warm up or charge capacitors to get to a proper operating status. I tried a different monitor from start-up and it worls just fine. If I turn the machine off when its been on for some time and turn it back on the monitor starts up fine. Its just when it hasn't been used for some hours.

I have a Xerox XA7-19i. It has the same problem as described by many others - intermittent fault with the display that manifests as a white screen when the monitor is first switched on. After a few trys of switching on and off, the monitor works fine until left off for a few hours. Recently, the problem deteriorated to no light from the panel, and a flashing blue power light.

I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY REPAIRED MY MONITOR:

I opened up my monitor and removed the power supply board.
I de-soldered every electrolytic capacitor, and replaced them with new capacitors of the same uF and voltage rating.
I put the monitor back together again and switched it on - it worked perfectly!

Yes - these monitors have been built using sub-standard / under-rated electrolytic capacitors. After two years of use, the power supply board was unable to supply enough power to the logic board and backlight, causing the above-mentioned problems.

The repair cost me ~ GBP 15 (USD $30). It is not a difficult fix, but one only to be attempted if you have electronics knowledge. Careful, kids! you'd be playing with the power supply of a mains AC electronic device. That stuff can kill.

But - I saved myself (and the environment) from having to throw out a monitor and buy a new one. If you have a faulty xerox monitor and are getting no love from Xerox customer support, find an electronics geek and ask them to replace the electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board. (but be careful to get the right kind of capacitors, and to get the capacitor polarity correct. If you have any doubt as to you ability to do this, don't bother trying!).

Good luck!

How to make my fonts smaller


Quick answer - not specifically to change font size, but to change whole screen size
The whole screen size can be magnified (zoom in) by simultaneously pressing CNTRL + ; the reverse operation (zoom out - what you want I think) is performed by CNTRL - (press cntl and + keys simultaneously)

Or change (increase) the resolution of the screen by right clicking a blank a blank area of the desktop and selecting 'screen resolution' in Windows 7 or in XP one the tabs similarly labeled, and increasing resolution if not at max already.

I was talking on phone in the car. Made a quick call. Everything work fine. Than the screen went blank white. I can't see the screen of any application. I take the battery out to see if it would reset the phone and turn it back on. It went straight back to the blank white screen. I try another solution. I use my home phone. Call my phone. It signal as it was off mode. Straight to answering machine. Red light flashes....I then, hold #1 to get voicemail. It did work. So my service is good. So my problem is how can I solve the blank screen issue? Has it happen to anyone before. Battery strong and it's not low on battery level. Thanks for any suggestions.

Display Becoming White


First, to verify if it is your display adapter, connect an external monitor to your laptop and see if it displays fine. If it is fine on the monitor, then we know that it is from your laptop screen(in this case, it is either you first check from a technician if it is the colour that has to be refilled or if you need to purchase a new screen). If not then it is from your display adapter(could be from corrupt display drivers). In this case, you would have to re-install new drivers for your display adapter(you can download it from your system manufacturer's website if you don't already have it).
Thanks

Stupid blank screen on my Craptop


Could be a simple video driver problem, try starting up your laptop in safe mode (Pressing F8 on boot up). If and when screen comes up highlight 'Start Windows in Safe Mode' Next a list of startup drivers etc will stream down the screen and tell you you are starting in safe mode, allow this. If your lcd screen stays on then it's a driver problem, go to add/remove programmes and uninstall driver the driver and restart your laptop. This should then start in VGA mode all icons will be bigger than normal. Either re-install video drivers from setup/restore disk or go to laptops manufacturer website to download drivers. If no screen even in safe mode LCD probably dead. Please rate solution.
