Having problems with your KDS Computer Monitors ?

Monitor connects and displays for 2 seconds, then blacks out.

\015 When the monitor is connected to the PC, it displays immediately, but only for a couple of seconds, then goes black. How do I get it to stay on?\015

Answers :

I would suspect an electrical component is failing. Try your monitor on another computer and see if it does the same thing. If it does, the monitor is failing. Also/Or try another monitor on your computer. If the new monitor does the same as the old monitor, then maybe the video card in your computer is failing. Try a new video card. Keep trying different component combinations until you decide what has to be failing.
