Faulty Iiyama flat screen monitor

Q: Faulty Iiyama flat screen monitor

I have an Iiyama ProLite E1700S flat screen monitor - recently, the blue Contrast/Brightness dialogue box has started to appear (initially on/off, now permanently on) for no reason - have tried everything I can think of to "reset" the screen, but suspect it's gone faulty - any ideas? - worth repairing? - or just ditch it?

Hello all,
I have a Phillips 32" LCD (model # 32TA2800/98) that I connect my laptops to with a VGA cable. I usually had my Gateway NV53A (AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4200 series Graphics card) connected and I never had a problem. Recently I connected my Samsung to the monitor and again, had no problems. When I reconnect my gateway the PC detects the monitor but the monitor does not detect the PC. If I switch back to the Samsung it works fine. I have reset the TV to factory default the only way I know how (owners manual). I have unplugged the power cable to the TV for 10 min+. I have changed from a 14 pin VGA to a 15 pin. I have updated all drivers.

PLEASE HELP ME!!!
 

A:1 monitor (Phillips 32" flat screen), 2 laptops, only 1 laptop detected by monitor

It appears this one has got them all stumped. I really need help with this one and I am at a total loss. I would be forever in someones debt.

Could it be that the TV has a capacitor that holds the settings for an extended period of time? Maybe I should leave it unplugged for 24-48 hours?

Additional monitor drivers are usual not needed. What do you have for a video adapter and are those drivers installed? Right click on My Computer choose Properties/Hardware/Device Manager. What information is listed under Video Adapters?
Also what are your screen resolution and refresh settings?

I have just purchased a new 17" flat screen monitor from PC world today. Not a make I recognise but they have sold several 309 not cheapest, not most expensive. Chameleon-I on the box.
When I have set it up, there are 3 lit spots on the monitor, one white one just above centre - not quite eye level and two a white and a pink about 1" below the top of the screen.
Question: Is this acceptable - I assume these are lit or dead pixels but should I contact PC world and demand/request an exchange. Would another one be any better.
Probably as I go along I would get used to them being there but I would like your advise and to whether it is acceptable.
Thank you.

I would certainly call to see if an exchange is possible. It really depends on the retailer and the manufacturer. They all seem to have different policies regarding dead pixels on new monitors.

Not even sure if anyone can help with this, and more than likely my flat screen monitor is a goner. What happened is it just simply stopped working. No power surge, no falling off my desk. Just kaput. The only thing that happens is that by the button, the green light that turns on when the monitor is on, flashes in 7 second incriments, which tells me its getting power. There is no power adapter, just a regular cable, the exact same as what plugs into a computer tower. So is there some kind of trick I'm missing to get it working again?

Check that your video drivers are all correctly installed and that the cable is plugged into the system fully. Also check to ensure you are not trying to run a higher resolution then that of what is supported by the monitor.

The LCD monitor itself has a power supply (or 2) built in to handle the lighting of the screen. Sometimes the power supply and/or fuses are fine, but the capacitors are blown or leaking.

If I turn it off, then back on I get a clear & crisp picture of my desktop. This only lasts less than two seconds and the screen goes black again. I have repeated this cycle many times to no avail, problem persists.
I have tried the following;
replaced power cord --- same results.
replaced the vga cable --- same results.
connected a different monitor --- works with no problems.

Is there somthing missing that I can do ?

If I open the case on the monitor what should I look for ?

I have a Gateway 17" Flat Screen Monitor that I bought just over a year ago, so the warranty isn't any good anymore. It just stopped working, but it's not like any monitor failure I've ever seen before -- the screen went completely white, with the exception of a couple of horizontal bands of dark colors (blue) that are just one or two pixels high.

At first I though my video card may have failed, but I hooked up another flat screen monitor that I borrowed from work (used the same cables as the other monitor, so it's not the cables) and it works fine.

Any ideas what may have failed and whether it is economically repairable?

Thanks

Hello, I just got this monstrosity of a monitor..
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824116075
When set to reccomended resolution of 1680x1050, the stuff on the screen is really small. Things like the browser window fills the whole screen, but the web page only takes up a small portion and leaves the rest blank. Is there a way to adjust the content onscreen so that it uses the whole screen? Ive had to lower the resolution to 1024x768. So that the wife is happy with the way it looks.
Also does someone know a thing or two about the hows and whys of resolutions. Or a site where I can learn about them. So that when someone asks me what they do I dont respond " it makes stuff on the screen smaller!"
 

A:Flat screen monitor resolution questions

Resolution size shouldnt be viewed like TV size where the screen is bigger and so the image is bigger. The best way to put it is like a house (web page) to a plot of land (your monitor), if your land grows (resolution increases), the house remains the same size, so if your resolution gets higher, the website size doesnt change but its viewable space has increased so you have a bunch of dead space now dont you?

Most websites are built with a 800-1100 px width to accomodate the most common resolutions (800 x 600 & 1024x768) and not make them to wide. When your monitor is set at 1680 for the width, you have about 800 to 600 pixels left on the screen as filler space. By getting a larger monitor but keeping your same 1024x768 resolution, you really just increased the size of what you were viewing. Increasing the resolution gives you more viewable space to accomodate multiple windows more multi-tasking, etc... Higher resolutions do make things smaller because you are making more space for your desktop both horizontal and vertically. If you put your resolution at 800 x 600, you'd have to scroll left or right on most of the pages you visited.

Widescreen lcd's like this one are sold more for video or gaming uses. Playing a DVD at the optimal size for the monitor will look a lot better than at the 1024x768 setting. If you simply want to browse the web then you can just leave your settings at whatever you feel comfortable viewing.

The screen is blank for a very long period after start-up and it also goes blank if the PC is idle for long period.

The PC is also getting slow again. I've done the auto-run and check off programs and turned some progrmas to manual from auto but it has not helped. And I have degragged and do disk cleanups daily.

Thanks

I just bought a second hand Philips 170C flatscreen monitor off eBay.

My previous 15" NEC MultiSync LCD 1560NX works fine. So no issues with graphics card or pc.

I have tried both the proper display driver and the default plug and play - no difference to the problem.

Problem - When I put up a white screen there is a pink cast over the screen which is more evident towards the edges and stronger at the top left.

This particularly effects light greys on the screen, but all clours seen affected.

I've played around with the colours but because the problem is not even over the screen - I can't fix it.

Could this be down to a backlighting fault?

Any help from you tech wizards would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!

A:Flat Screen Monitor Display Problem

More to the point is that the LCD element took a strong hit somewhere and is out of alignment - ya can't bounce these things!

The backlight is simply a white flourecent bulb, and won't cause color missplacement, unless its what's loose and is pressing the LCD element somehow.

How was it packed when it arrived? There's a reason why the manufacturer inserts these screens in a foam sleeve when shipping, and this is it.

A:NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 400 won't work on HP flat screen monitor

I would guess that the card is not capable of displaying the required screen res. Are you getting a post display or are you able to enter the bios? Can you boot the system in safe mode? If you can enter the bios or safe mode and it is displayed normally, you can attempt a driver update. Note you will have to uninstall the current driver in safe mode.

You are dealing with 10yr old technology with that card. There comes a time where old stuff just cannot be used with modern hardware. This may well be the case here.

I right clicked on the desktop and got to the 'properties' I then went to the tab with the monitor settings. It will not let me change the dimensions it stays on 800 X 600 and it won't let me change it to anything else. Also the color options is not like the regular 256 or thousand or million colors it is something completely different.

I have just bought the above monitor but I think I might have boobed.

The maximum resolution I can get is 2048 x 1152 which apparently is due to the graphics running off the mother board. I would obviously like to achieve the maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440 but I assume I will need a graphics card.

My question is; in order to achieve this resolution, is there a graphics card that will be able to run from a 380 watt power source?

I don't need a card for games, just able to handle a photo editing program while using the extra resolution.

I ordered a new 19" monitor (see post title). But the display is badly off-colour towards some of the corners. For example, wide bands of green and purple appear against a blue windows background. Other parts of the display are perfectly normal.
It looks a bit like thin paint or dye has been spilled on the screen (this is not what has actually happened, I'm just giving you an idea of what it looks like ).
I was able to reduce the effect slightly by adjusting the on-screen landing settings, but it is still very bad. Deguassing does nothing.
I'm pretty sure the problem is the monitor, not the system.
Anyone know how to fix this?

And if you can find an Iiyama (or monitors in general) tech support forum please point me to it. I have had no luck

Almost any monitor will work if it can connect to computer.
I'd worry more about what kind of connector the monitor and graphics card have. Here's the two currently used a lot:
VGA: http://www.jestineyong.com/wp-conten...08/07/vga2.jpg
DVI: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._Connector.jpg
and http://www.cliff.com.au/images/wallp...dvialurear.jpg

Some graphics cards may have both like this pic

so you wouldn't have to worry about it.

If you have a DVI graphics card, but the monitor is VGA, you can always get a cheap adapter like one of these:

This happened imediately upon boot up and both times rebooting has returned the monitor to normal, leaving the computer running does not bring the problem back. Which is more likely, that my monitor is beginning to fail or maybe my graphics card (a saphire, ATI radeon 7000) is failing?

Hey, I'm wondering if I should hurry up and exchange this monitor before the 30-day period is over.

Last night for a few mins it looked as though everything on the screen sort of had a trail. Like when you have the trail turned on for the mouse. Anyway, it went away a couple minutes later. But this morning when I turned it on I had the same trail type look on all the icons, and there was an occasional blink of the screen. I tightened the monitor cable but the trail remained. Then I left the room and came back, and they were gone.

Do I need a new monitor, or does this happen with all flat panels?
 

A:Flat Panel Monitor

It may not be the flat panel that is the problem. First check to see if this trail exists outside of your operating system. Like go to the BIOS or DOS, does it happen there too? Don't use the MS-DOS shortcut in windows because you are still running the monitor driver that it loaded. Your problem could be software related, corrupt or incorrect drivers.

If you do have correct drivers and connects, it may be monitor. I don't know it all, but this is my theory.

As far as I know, there's no problem leaving the monitor on for an extended period. I use two LCD flat-screen monitors and have never experienced a problem.

If you can afford it and really want a flat panel go with the 18. But,in my opinion, a CRT 17 or 19 flat screen would do the job at a lot less money.

Hi...

I was on the computer last night when my power flicked. It shut my computer off. So I turned it back on...and ever since then, (which was last night) the colors on my monitor have been different. I believe the colors are dimmer.

For example, when you search something on Google...that horizontal bar that runs across the screen that displays the number of results your search contains...well that bar is nearly pink/purple!

Any ways I can maybe fix this?

I have an LCD Flat panel monitor. It's a Northgate computer if that helps anything.

Thanks!
Shawn

I purchased the Dell Computer and Monitor exactly one year ago. For the past two weeks, I have intermittenly experienced the following problem. After having the computer and monitor on for approximately one hour or so, a flashing occurs every 2-3 seconds or so, as well as a thin, black horizontal line at the bottom of the screen just above the task bar. I have nothing near which would cause interference (microwave, etc) and there are no loose connections which I can see. Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? If so, how to correct it?

I would suggest trying a different monitor to rule out either the video card or the monitor. If it happens with a different monitor then swap out the video card for a new one.

I just bought a new 17" flat panel monitor by SVA. I tried it on a machine at work, and on 800X600 resolution everything looks great. I took it home to my personal computer, and the 800X600 setting makes things look smeared or tiered. The higher settings (1248Xsomething) work OK but everything is too small. I have the ATI Radeon All-In-Wonder video card at home, and both home and work are set at 75MHZ refresh rate. Any ideas why it won't show up clearly at 800X600? Thanks
 

A:Wrong Resolution on Flat Panel Monitor

Have you tried 1024x768? That works fine for me at a 75hz refresh rate -- and using an ATI Radeon 9700.

At 800x600 -- is it web pages that are smeared, particularly when scrolling, or the desktop itself? If web pages or text, then the problem may be with the video driver installation -- see if there's an update available.

Suddenly my monitor quit working a couple days ago. I guess it's about 4 or 5 yrs old. Never a problem until Sun a.m. When I got up my computer was dead. Put a new power supply in and then everything worked. Checked my e-mail and later came back and the monitor wouldn't work. I have a new moniter now, but wonder if there is any way to trouble shoot the old one. I don't know if they are worth doing anything with or not.
Thanks.

Cheaper to replace that 5-year old. You got your money worth out of that display.

It's hard to find CRT's these days as most people go flat panels. Dell makes the best bang for the buck flat panels if you're considering going this way.

Other than that, we just bought a Samsung SyncMaster 19" as these are some of the most readily available and fair price 19" true-flat screen monitors. We're extremely happy with it.

I was always a hardcore Sony fan, but you just can't find Sony CRT's anymore...

Edit- here's a link to the one we got. It's FLAT (as in totally flat), .20 dot pitch, 1920x1440 resolution,
