Hi! I believe that the monitor has come to its end. 6 years is quite long for a monitor. You may have it repaired for there may be blown capacitors that needs replacement but a new monitor will be a great idea. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

My LG tv model number M2762DL will not show a picture. On the screen shows a code V3.14.0. What is the problem?


Somehow, you have gotten to a firmware information screen. Try pressing OK and Exit simultaneously on the LG remote. (Note: this doesn't work if you use a generic or other universal remote.) If you don't have the remote, you can try pressing Menu and OK on the TV. (These are the second and third buttons from the left.) I've only seen the remote method work.

If that works, you'll probably need to open the input list and change the current input. Press Input on the remote or on the TV (the leftmost button).

I hope this helps.

You may have not reset the lamp counter after replacing the physical lamp. To do this 1. Press the “POWER” button so that the projector projects the picture on the wall (projection screen)
2. Press the “MENU” button to show the “MAIN MENU”
Use buttons “F” or “G” and select “OPTION”
3. Confirm this by pressing “ENTER” so that “OPTION” is shown
Using buttons “5 / 6”, select “LAMP RUNTIME” (lamp operation counter)
4. Select and press the “ENTER” button for at least 3 seconds
5. The “LAMP RUNTIME” (lamp operation counter) will change to “TIME RESET[POWER OFF]”
6. Turn the device off by pressing “POWER” and unplug the power cord

I can't turn on the sound. It is not muted. When I press the leftmost button at the bottom right of the moniter, the audio tab is greyed out.


Possibly greyed out as it is not receiving audio input. Make sure the "audio in" cable is attached
to both the monitor and your "audio out" (green) port in back of computer.

Fujitsu-Siemens P15 TFT power/picture problem. it take time to turn on.


It does indeed sounds like the capacitors, I had this problem last year with a Medion monitor where it would turn on and off, when I spoke to Medion they did say that it would need a repair but at the time I wasn't enclined to pay the repair fees for something that may happen again!

Personally I would stick with your plan of getting a new monitor because my view on monitor hardware issues is that if it's happened once it will happen again even if you do repair it resulting in a lot of hassle!

Dark Grey Vertical Bar


1. try connecting laptop to an external monitor and check if this vertical dark gray bar appears. if yes it means video is the problem. you need to boot in safe mode then uninstall the video driver. boot to notmal mode then download and install the latest video driver. if still same problem then replace video card. if video is built in with motherboard you need to replace motherboard.

2. when the vertical dark gray bar did not appear in the external monitor then it means issue is with the LCD panel. Do this turn off laptop. press and hold D key then press Power button at the same time or Press and hold on the Fn key then Power button check if the test will run. Color displays full screen when you keep pressing on N key when the colors appears check the vertical dark gray bar if still exist in the test, this means LCD panel and LCD cable needs to be replaced.

Samsung SyncMaster 710N 17" LCD Monitor - Grey screen


Does this unit have an external power supply (wall wart)? If so, substitute a known good one of similar specs. If the original is 12 Volts/1.2 Amps, find a 12-15 Volt/1.2 or greater Amp. DO NOT go over the voltage more than about 15-20%. DO NOT go under the current rating less than 90% for just long enough to see if it works. Be sure the connector fits PERFECTLY!!! Some will appear to fit but will be loose. Do not under any conditions replace a DC supply with an AC one or vice-versa.
