Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Often, problems such as this is indicative of a failing capacitor in the 5V internal regulator section. Most capacitors uses a wet dielectric that dries out after some time due to heat buildup. In some instances, most of the capacitors would also fail ESR test. Additionally, you may want to check the external power supply if it is putting out the correct voltage as indicated in the reverse of the adapter box.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Further analysis of your description reveals that it is possible likewise that:

    • the backlights are working hence the "...screen becomes fully white...";

    • which also is indicative that the monitor is not receiving or processing the video signal;

    • the electronics were messed up.
    This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

mdl34, Your monitor is listed as "time to retire" and get new unit on retrevo .com You might try "reseating" all the connections to the monitor and vga connector on the pc. examine all the connector "pins" in the cable connector and note any damaged or bent, crushed pins. Try moving monitor to a "known-good" fully booted pc to see if same problem occurs. Swap-in a good monitor to your pc to prove that pc is operating correctly. 12fixlouie

You may have failure in the power supply due to bad caps, bad inverter circuits such as shorted transistors, transformers, bad lamps. You need to open it up and make some measurement, see example of failed ACER monitors:

White screen on veiwsonic vg700b

Usually a completely white screen is an indication that there is no video signal being fed to the panel from the controller. For instance, if you take a working LCD monitor and just disconnect the video cable that goes to the LCD panel from the mainboard, it will turn on and off just fine, but it will light up bright white.

So, there seems to be an issue getting the video signal from your logic board to the panel. This can be caused by a bad cable, a loose connection, a bent and/or shorted pin (from plugging it in wrong), a bad logic controller chip, or a blown fuse/component on the LCD's circuit panel (PCB that runs across the top of the back of the LCD panel.)

Hope this help!

Feel free to contact me with questions, or for sales and service.
