|I have a I-INC Monitor (28") about 2 years old. This problem started 3, or 4 months ago, Occasionally it would "Blink" off, just for a fraction of a second, and then stay on. The frequency, and duration it stays off has increased, to where it takes hours of "Blinking" on and off, before coming back on. |
I've unplugged it, and tried it again hours later. Some times that works.
I use this as a Computer Monitor, as well as a TV. (I plug it into my Cable Box) It does seem to do a little better (not much) on the Computer.
I see others have the same problem, no matter what size it is.
I'm going to look and see if there's a Recall on these products.
I think we all should complain to the Gov. Bureau of Consumer Protection, and see if we can't get them to Recall, or Fix them.
I've changed the HDMI cord,
but I haven't tried using the VGA port, cause I don't have a Cable for it.
If I pull the Cable out while it's ON, then a message appears, saying it has no signal, and the power light goes to Yellow (standby),
when I plug it back in, and the message goes away, and the light turns to Blue (Operating Mode) While the screen remains Black.
Although, plugging the Cable back IN will get it to "Blink" a few times, but ends up going black.
I will say this, when it does Blink, you can see what ever is on the TV or Computer screen just fine.
My suspicion is that there must be a "switch" that kicks it from "Primary" to a "Secondary" Circuit, because it will Blink ON, and shows the picture or screen, just for a second, and then it seems (to me) to "Kick" to another Circuit, and then goes black.
I was hoping that someone might know if this is true,(secondary circuit) and tell me what to look for.
I Thank you for taking the time to read my Problems. (Boo Hoo)
Listen, I don't have a lot of money, and If I can Fix this, it would make me very happy.
Thanks again !
PS I'm running Windows 7, but I'm sure it makes no difference. I've set it to Never Sleep, or Hibernate. My Cable box is a Motorola DVR My, Services are ATT U-Verse.
