Question about 3G Technology GEM GL-822A/B 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Open Question

My GEM Monitor is saying it is on but the screen is blank/black like it is turned off. I tried pushing the button to turn it off and back on but nothing happens. Turning the computer off and on doesn't help either. Any suggestions or is the thing toast?

SOURCE: GEM GL 1821A black out

at first i would have said it was the video card in your comp,
but if you have tried it on other computers then that cant be the problem.
So if we no its deffinatey not the video card then it is going to be one of two things.
the first thing is its going to be the power pack over heating thid does happen from time to time and can be resolved by replacing the power adaptor this is the cheaper sollution as long as this is the problem,
The other problem it could be is a solder problem because if the monitor comes on everytime and then switches off the chances are if it is not the power pack then it is going to be a bad solder on one of the resistors this is also a common problem with monitors and television.
Now the problem you have got is do you replace the power pack hoping it is that over heating, but if you do this and it is not this that is to fault then you have wasted your money on a power pack that you dont need but hopefully can get a refund on.
Or do you look at the other option a bad solder this is also not very expensive to repair but without knowing what your looking for and without the equipment to check the resistance and finding where the bad solder is.
If you have tried a different power pack then the problem is going to be a bad solder now you can do this yourself but could take ages to find the fault yourself and buying equipment also expensive.
If you can buy a power transformer on the basis you can take it back if this is not the problem i would try this first but make sure you can get refund if it makes no difference.
If you have the equipment to do it yourself and you know aht you are looking for then this should be inexpensive just the price of some solder aslong as you have all equipment if you dont then take to repair shop tell them the problem and they should fix this for a small fee would be alot cheaper than replacing the monitor let me know what you want to do.
If you are capable of doing this yourslef you will need spec sheet but not having an idea what you are looking for will mean you wont find the problem and alot of people totally destroy the unit trying to repair themselves let me know

If the CD drive door won't open, odds are that at least you know the drive is without power. Have you had the case opened up at all? With what you've described here your computer needs the tender, loving care of a technician.

Getting frequent black screens on 1501 Inspiron Laptop


Black screen is probably a screen saver or the screen is turned off by power management software.
Check your screensaver setting. Change the screensaver to None to disable screensaver.
I assume you are using Windows XP.
If the LCD is turned off by power management, on the same screen with screen saver, on the lower part of the box there is a Power button. Click to open Power Options Properties. Set your monitor power properties there.
When the screen go blank and you have to push power button, probably the computer is set to go to stand by mode after some idle minutes. You can also set it here in system standby setting.

Blank Screen..Will not power off


The flash light test only works with lcd monitor as they have back lights. Double check the connections again, also, if you can borrow a monitor try it on your pc, it may be your graphics driver needs to be uninstalled and re-installed, but you will need a monitor to see.
