BenQ T905 faded to black

Q: BenQ T905 faded to black

My BenQ T905 monitor (cabled as an auxiliary monitor to my Mac PowerBook G4 laptop) worked fine for about a year (purchased Nov. 05). Then several months ago, I noticed it was flashing a few times when booting up. Nothing else was problematic, so I assumed it was a minor glitch.

Today, with my Macintosh Powerbook powered up for several hours, suddenly my BenQ monitor dimmed and the light started sort of draining down and away. The whole thing went black and, as it did, I heard a small pop come from somewhere in back of it.

I turned it off, then back on. When I do, I see the "BenQ" logo for a split second before it goes to solid black again. Is my monitor fried? Or is there something I can try to coax it back to life?

A: BenQ T905 faded to black

Is it still under any kind of warranty? I doubt it, but you gotta ask.

Can you see anything if you shine a flashlight at the screen and look very close?
If the backlight burned out the screen will still work, but it will be almost impossible to see.

Hey, not sure if this is where to post this but, here goes.

I was just wondering about refresh rates.. what should i be setting mine to.. i cant see a difference between 60hz and 75 hz... i play alot of games, battlefield 2, Half life 2, etc mostly FPS's. can someone tell me what i should set mine to. oh and im running an eVGA Geforce FX 5500 256mb video card.

A:BenQ T905 LCD monitor question

LCDs don't have the traditional refresh rate so the setting generally has no effect. But if the manufacturer states to use a specific refresh rate then you should set it to that for whatever reason. The one thing it can affect is the highest frame rate in games. If you set a game to wait for vertical sync then the maximum FPS will be linked to the refesh rate, which even 60 is more then enough. So for that higher is better, and for CRT's higher is better to avoid the flicker.

Google has a new video chat (webcam) plugin. I've been using my Logitech Fusion webcam with Windows Live Messenger, no problems. I downloaded the plugin and used the test window to check it. I appear as just a black screen, even though the plugin knows I have Logitech Fusion, it appears in the box under "camera". I am able to use the audio portion of the plugin, using my Logitech webcam, I can speak and hear perfectly. There's no picture. I tried Google's page on the new plugin, no trouble-shooting link. I tried phoning Logitech, the guy said he never heard of the plugin and has no idea if it will work, though the camera does work with Yahoo and AIM messengers. Sooo, have come to my one trusted source, when nobody knows, tech guys know! Please clue me in!!

hello. having problems with LCD montior. It is a quality monitor--NEC Multisync LCD 1830--but is about 5 years old.

For a week or so it was flickingering slightly. Then one day it faded to black for a minute, came back for 30 seconds, then went black for a long time. On subsequent days I tried it, no luck. Then one day I tried it again and it worked for a few minutes before fading to black again. When it works for brief periods, the image quality is perfect. But at any time it is liable to go totally black again.

Might it be at the end of its lifespan? Can anyone tell me the normal lifespan for LCD's?

Are they worth repairing, in general?

Note: i am quite sure the problem is with the monitor, not the CPU or anything else. i hooked up another monitor and it has been working perfectly for days.

A:Solved: LCD monitor has faded to black

Your LCD is history as in either or backlight,inverter and no it is not worth having fixed. Buy a new one.

Anyone help be appreciated.

The monitor has no forced refresh rates or anything.

Thank you my humble friends

A:BENQ GL2450 Goes Black few seconds then comes back.

Just to rule out your video card having issues, I would try to see if I could borrow a monitor to use for a day and see if the problem persists with that monitor. Likewise, I would see about trying the monitor on a friend's computer and see how that works out.

Post back and let us know what happens.


Can you also take a screenshot of Device Manager with the "Display Adapters" tab expanded, and post it, please?

Hey -- I'm having the same problem as NOYB had with photoshop. It doesn't look like the problem was resolved in that thread.

I recently re-installed photoshop/video card drivers/ did a re-format.

Opened a file in MS paint and windows picture viewer and the colors are beautiful, perfect.

But -- when I open the file in Photoshop and an Arcsoft photo program, (under my monitor workspace profile) the blacks are saturated in the green range. This is a problem with every single photo I open now. If I try RGB, everything is faded.

I tried all of the color workspace settings, RGB, monitor, etc, applied almost all of the profiles in preview, and nothing looks right. My monitor is calibrated - the photo here was edited to my preference in photoshop before and now it's all wrong. This is driving me crazy.
Tried: two different graphics cards, calibrating monitor, updating drivers, changing color profile settings....

A:Photoshop blacks are greenish, RGB profile black/colors are faded.

My computer blue screened yesterday saying something about free space on the disk which didn't make sense cause i still have 50% space available. I restarted and it seemed like I had a virus, so I did a system restore to a couple days before. Ever since then a lot of icons/folders appear faded. I know this is because they are hidden but before this blue screen/restore happened the folders and icons that are now faded weren't. I have never seen one icon/folder on my computer that appeared faded or dimmed and now they are, so is there any way I can change this back?

A:Faded Icons

There's clearly something still wrong with your computer, and having multiple folders and files marked as Hidden is just another symptom. I would suggest posting a HijackThis log in the security forum.

My problem is that the sticker with the product key on is faded all to heck and unreadable.
Is there any way to reinvigorate the sticker? The top barcode is still visible if that is of any use.

Alternatively I have an old dud laptop (also dead, I think the motherboard burnt out) which was on Vista. The sticker on this one is perfectly visible. Would I still be able to create a vista installation media and then perhaps upgrade to Windows 10.

I really don't want to have to purchase a new version of windows for the sake of a faded sticker.

Thanks in advance guys.

Run a full scan with Malwarebytes in Safe Mode if necessary, followed by your AV full scan. I'd also run a full scan with SUPERAntiSpyware - Downloads which digs out spyware that remains after uninstall in registry.

Then run SFC /SCANNOW Command.

If this doesn't repair it update your Display driver, seeing if a new one is provided by Windows Updates after enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3)

You can also try System Restore to before the problem began, if necessary from System Recovery Options

If that fails, uninstall the display driver and reinstall it by restarting the PC.

Hi, I have a Joybook laptop that I got, a Chinese model(long story how I came across it), but it has a problem where it seemingly overheats.

I then tried a windows xp setup disc of mine and it crashed when it started to load the actual setup after, loading hardware. I then tried my Ubuntu 7.04 disc and It would start to load then say "Critical Temperature (101 c) sending Sigkill to all processes" or something like that. I cant imagine the temperature being 101 degrees Celsius?! seems awfully high for 10 seconds into boot up.

I can sometimes Get it to start X , other times it wont properly load the display.

I was looking to go from my 22 inch NEC FE2111(too big) to an LCD monitor; However, I can't seem to make up my mind. I've narrowed it down to the Viewsonic VP191B ($449.00 at newegg) or the BenQ FP91G+ ($329.00 at newegg). I've heard nothing but good things about BenQ, and I already know the excellent reputation of Viewsonic. I do alot of gaming so that's an important factor. I know CRT has better visual quality than LCD, but I need to conserve space, so any input on these 2 monitors would be appreciated.

A:Viewsonic or BenQ

We use Viewsonic 17'' at my work & they r ok. Although I have a BENQ at home & I find it way better than the others. I had an LG one b4 & seriously the BENQ not only looks better but was cheaper too! they r owned by Acer or some other joint big organisation & are not crappy at all. others have said that because they haven't heard of them then they must be crap, but you just have to research them b4 judging.

I can print pictures from other software on my computer, from the internet, etc, with great photo quality. When I print from Windows photo gallery they are very light and faded looking. I have made sure the adjustments are for my printer.

It seems that most of the people experiencing this problem had canon printers. Does anyone have a solution to this?

Both my daughter and I have a problem with keyboards in that the letters fade really quickly. This isn't such a problem with a desktop, but is an issue on a laptop. Apart from naming the condition "Acid Sweat Syndrome" ( ***), has anyone else had this problem and found a solution about how to replace the letters? Tippex comes straight off. Please don't say learn to touch type!

I know it is possible to change the appearance of text on Vista, I believe it is called clear?

I only suffer feint text (looks like ink is running out on printed paper) on certain things ie. The Spybot home page or some windows when down loading stuff from the net.

Is there a tweak that brings ALL text up clean and clear?


A:Only some text has faded appearance.

Hello Alan,

You can check the usual items listed below to see if they may be able to help with this:
Make sure that you are using the native screen resolution for your monitor.Check to see if you can use a higher screen refresh rate.Try the different ClearType settings to see if one looks better.Check the program to see if it has it's own font settings that can be adjusted.
Hope this helps,

Fujitsu CRT monitor has a suddenly "faded" display, as if the screen has been whitewashed. It's also slightly out of focus, and there's a tiny black dot in the middle.

Hi...My beloved Acer M1600 Desktop with Windows XP SP3 OS just went bad ...not suddenly but in steps til all I have is a black monitor screen so I would not have a clue what the problem could be anything.... I can switch the power on and the fan goes....the monitor that had a bright yellow light switches to a basicly very dim flickering light....I just established that the Graphics Card fan is going .......and I tried F8 on startup but nothing....Lately I have had a problem with my cat dancing on the keyboard but she is deaf and takes no notice of my howls of frustration.....So this one has got me stumped....
However Prior to the black screen ...I recall I was having big problems with Firefox and Chrome ...both started crashing as soon as I tried to load in a web site...later both would not open at all.....I recall rebooting and I had my normal screen with my shortcuts then later I had no shortcuts just my screen picture and then later again the black screen

I think it would be worth seeing if it will run another OS booting from the DVD

do you have another PC that works and has a DVD writer - you could then create a UBUNTU DVD to run from the machine
that will see if there is a hardware issue at all ?
or if its a windows or harddrive issue

Do you have a set of recovery DVDs ?

quite a long post of instructions here

UBUNTU Stand Alone DVD

Note the latest version of UBUNTU needs a DVD to use and boot from

if you only have CDs then you can use an older version, version 10 or 11 from this archive list

It may be possible to boot from another Operating System
This will at least test the Hardware and also see if you can see the Harddrive and possibly get any of your data off.

If you have another PC with a DVDwriter and spare DVD
Download the ISO

UBUNTU version 14
For almost all PCs. The following ISO 32Bit image will work on most machines with Intel/AMD/etc type processors and almost all computers that run Microsoft Windows, as well as newer Apple Macintosh systems based on Intel processors.

You can also run from a USB device now - if the Machine supports booting off a USB Stick Read more

On B/W lasers it means the toner is running low on one side of the cartridge, so you take it out (the cartridge) and shake it a bit to distribute the remaining toner evenly.

Hi all,

This is my first post here so would like to say hello to everyone .
Ok to kick this off i have a very frustrating monitor problem. What happens is if for some reason when my pc gets shut down, or restarted my monitor does not seem to have a display and comes up with "no signal". Sometimes when i turn my pc off at the power button, and also my monitor and try to re-boot both my monitor may work at times but only like 1 out of 5 attempts at doing so. As you can imagine its becoming very frustrating. We run an at home business so we need/use the internet as much as possible so i guess i am here looking for a cheaper fix, rather then go out and buy a new monitor. This monitor is not under warranty anymore, and is about 2 years old. Any help/suggestions would be highly appreciated.

If you could answer any of the following questions or have any insight on the monitor, I would be grateful.

Is the BenQ GL2460HM a good gaming monitor?
Is it too high/ too low quality for my GPU?
Is it a good monitor for dual display?

Is there another monitor you think makes better use of my PC's specs/ meets my needs?
I'm not wanting to spend much more than 300 USD, I may opt to buy a single monitor which is of higher quality.

Did you mean driver, or drive?
If you are running XP, I'd delete the driver(in device manager), reboot, and let windows detect new hardware, and install new driver automatically. Don't know if Windows 98 will do this, but XP will. Also check to make sure you have the latest firmware for the drive.
If all else fails, contact BenQ. They should be able to help............

Okay, I got this screen last winter as a christmas present and I do like it very much but since I play CS in 800x600(I dunno what that res is called) I want to have black bars.

I know the option "Display Mode" on my screen but that just makes it to small(it do the same res in every resolution I use). I cant find any drivers aswell for my screen, but maybe it doesnt exist =)

But as I said, I want blackbars when I play CS in 800x600 since it is not a widescreen res.

Recently my computer was hacked (I guess you could say) by Anti-Virus Gold and thanks to your guys' tutorial, I was able to delete it. But I'm still having some problems that might or might not be related. *shrug* Anyway...

1) When I go to change my desktop wallpaper, I click on browse and click on the file I want to open...and nothing happens. And there are also fewer wallpapers to choose from from the list. I can't figure out what the problem is. And I have changed my wallpaper thousands of times and I've never had this problem. It's really bugging me!!!

2) When I go to My Computer and view my thumbnail files, some are faded. It's really weird. This started happening when my computer was hacked.

3) This is kind of minor, but when I log onto my computer, Internet Explorer pops up for some reason. Again, it never did before. Oh, and the buttons on IE changed w/out me actually doing anything. *sigh*
