Issue Details

My display on my PXI controller was working fine, but now it is just black. If I turn it off and on again, I can see the screen for a short period, but then it goes out again. What can I do to fix this?


Often if you are seeing this behavior it has to do with the monitor, or the cord to the monitor. Try swapping out the monitor and DVI cord.

Additional Information

Some other steps you can try to solve the problem:
  1. If you are using a Windows operating system, use Windows Remote Desktop to remote into the controller, and see if any of the display drivers need updated.
  2. Try a DVI to VGA adapter to the monitor and observe if there is any difference.
