AMW F199 LCD Monitor

by Bob&barb / April 20, 2007 10:02 AM PDT

My AMW LCD Monitor is less than 2 years old and all I get is a black screen, and the green power light is on. Where can I purchase a power supply for this item or have it repaired? I am running on a Dell Dimension 4300 runnin Windows XP Pro.

I'd start with the place you bought it from.

Repairs are unlikely since in the US the minimum shop charge is over 100 now. That and parts make it more likely a new display is cheaper. The fact the LCD display shows a power LED diminished the possibility it's the power brick.

Look in your documentation.

There should be a service center in there. Also many look to EBAY for second hand odd parts for cheap.

Do you possibly have the address to send an AMW monitor which is under manufacturers warranty for repair? Mine is and I have mis-placed the info. that came with it. Thanks,

We have sold some of these monitors in the UK and have had a problem which was reported as "not coming on when system was started". On investigation we found that they do come on at the "DOS boot" (i.e. BIOS display etc) but simply reset to Black Screen on the switch to Windows. (Power light on etc.)

This seems to be a question of Graphics Driver settings - the systems were using a "Plug and Play" setting rather than TFT Panel. I have just contacted AMW in the UK for advice on the specific sttings they suggest, is this your issue?
