Section 10: Troubleshooting
The screen is blank
• Be sure the Power Button has been pressed to turn the monitor on.
• Confirm the brightness and contrast settings are set normally.
• Check if the Indicator Light is flashing. If so, this indicates there is no signal from your video
source.
• If your source is a notebook or laptop, be sure that its settings are in mirror mode and the
device itself is powered on.
The image is out of focus
• Ensure the video cable is inserted properly at both ends.
The screen is flashing
• Try an alternative power source. If the current one is insuficient, it may be causing this
issue.
• Ensure devices such as non-shielded speakers, fluorescent lighting, AC transformers,
table fans etc. are a safe distance away from your screen to avoid magnetic disturbances.
The color bleeds or visual effects appear unusual.
• If your screen is all red or blue, or any colors disappear, check to see that the cable is
properly inserted. A loose connection can cause a bad signal.
• Try connecting to another video source for comparison.
The screen appears to be scrolling, rolling, or moving unusually.
• Check that your source frequency is within 55-76Hz.
• Reconnect and ensure your video source cable is secure.
The monitor needs cleaning
• Make sure the monitor has been powered off before cleaning.
• Always use soft, non-abrasive cloth when cleaning.
