i-inc monitor not staying on

August 28, 2015 at 13:20:01
Specs: Linux
Having a problem with my i-inc monitor, when i turn it on it ssys no signal then turns off, i have tried to get into the osd menu but it turns off too quickly i have looked online for a solution and it would appear that the control board most likly needs replacing.so could I take the control board out of a Samsung 15" monitor and put it in the i-inc 25" monitor...

Have you tried the I-inc monitor on another computer (or another monitor on yours)?

The reason for asking is that "no signal" usually points to a computer issue and the above would prove/disprove the point.
EDIT:
A cable issue is also possible, see next response.

If it is the monitor then I would forget any thoughts about using incorrect control boards. In this case both the manufacturer and screen sizes are different which makes the idea even worse.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I am sure that that would not work.
Did you try using a different monitor cable?
Try it on a different computer?

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

The no signal banner is' nt the problem as I have nothing plugged into the monitor for it to display.
The problem is I can't access the osd menu because it turns itself off so quickly.
The monitor should stay on and let me access the osd menu even if nothing is plugged into it....

I don't think there is anything you can do from the outside and delving inside is specialised.

I would think you'd be able to press the power button to
turn the monitor on, and then press the OSD button without
waiting for anything to show up on the screen first. It might
be necessary to wait a very short time between turning the
power on and turning the OSD on, but it might not, and even
if it is, it should be less than the time for the "No Signal"
message to come on and then go away. How long is that?

Can someone do a test for me.
Unplug your monitor from the tower
then turn on the monitor and try and open the osd menu
If you can get into the menu then it would appear my monitor is broken...

Plug the monitor into a computer. You can't test it or access the OSD without a signal.

Of course you can access the osd menu without a signal.
the settings are stored in the monitor not the tower.
have you ever done a self test on a monitor??? Obviously not...

If you're so certain, why did you ask this?

Unplug your monitor from the tower
then turn on the monitor and try and open the osd menu

This ain't my 1st rodeo, kid. I tried it on 2 of my monitors just to be sure. With the tower off, the monitor power button goes from green to orange & the screen says 'no signal'. The OSD will not come up. Power up the system & the OSD works. Go figure....

Going back to my #1. Did you try the monitor on another computer?

Hah! I'm surprised. I thought my Dell monitor's OSD worked
whether there was a video signal or not. It requires a signal.

I'v tried it on a different tower in all 3 ports still having the same problem also tried it using hdmi instead of Vga still nothing.
I've read the manual and it says when performing a self test you have only the power cable plugged in.

I think this situation might vary with the make and model number of the monitor - hence the differing views. On mine when there is no signal I can only see the "source input" part of the OCD but it does show and stay up.

I still think the best test is to either try another monitor on your computer or this one on another computer. That would tell you whether or not you have a monitor fault which would be a good start.
EDIT:
Sorry I missed your #13.

I can access the source part of the osd but that's it
i'm totally perplexed by this because as far as I can tell the monitor works fine except for this osd problem.

So it sounds like there is no problem with your monitor at all.
It just isn't getting a video signal from the computer. Right?

Edit: I had forgotten about post #13 when I posted this.

Yep, it certainly now looks like monitor. In which case it's back to #4 unless anyone has any better ideas.

The way I see it a monitor is just like a tv you don't need a signal to turn the volume up or adjust the brightness or mess around in the menu.

Mine will not allow anything but source adjustments when the signal is unplugged - no brightness, contrast, color, etc.

However, whatever the ways and wherefores of the monitor the fact remains that it will not work on a different tower. This means that either both towers have an obscure and identical fault or (far more likely) the monitor or its cable are faulty.

I'd say faulty monitor as i've tried it with hdmi cable as well as Vga...
