Hey...Dude,

First of all inspecting all the caps closely...see if any caps has a stress mark like a pluffed on top. Those with a pluffed replaced with the same type of voltages that mark on the side of a caps. Those with no pluffed need to tested with ESR meter to see any leaked. If it leaked replaced those too...
Have fun!

MW19r powers up but sceen remains black


If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My 19 inch x2gen mw19r monitor just went black its still on but wont display a picture so now im using my old tube monitor want to fix the x2gen


titter101, You left out telling us the "DATE of MANUFACTURE" for your unit. You will need to use CRT unit while researching info on x2gen mw19r unit. If unit out of warranty, then you or qualified technician will need to do the investigation and repair of unit. Read the fixya profiles of "budmrtn" , "buddymc" , "12fixlouie" to see if a DIY repair will work for you. 12fixlouie

Screen goes dark after 1minute, power lite stays on


Possibly the lcd ccfl inverter. Ebay sells universal ones for 9 to 25 dollars each. Monitor repair knowledge needed to replace this part.
It could also be your external power supply if it is not OEM. Or if it failing under a load. If the picture is good when it is on, I always start looking at the power supply and the ccfl inverter/transformer. Please understand I am not an expert on LCD's I just seem to get lots of failing ones. ---Hope this helps.

Mn x2gen monitor will not power up. The power supply's led is illuminated. The light on the power button is very dim. Model #MW19R

X2 MW19R is ticking and no display?


Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you can't do the repair we offer a repair service, contact us for more details or if you have any questions.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

X2GEN CAPACITOR LOCATION


I had the same problem with my 22" X2Gen, first the monitor started what looked like a random color temperature shift, ie the screen would switch between a yellowish and blueish tint, then it wouldn't turn on and the amber standy by light flashed on and off. I took it apart and replaced the 2 220uF25V capicators with 2 220uF35V caps I got at radio shack, part number 272-1029. Don't worry about the voltage mismatch I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter, the voltage is the maximum the cap can withstand and has nothing to do with the voltage in the circuit. The caps are located on the board that the AC cord plugs directly into, it has a plastic (almost feels like paper) sheild, the caps are marked C812 and C813 on the circuit board. There was no 47uF35V cap that I could find, anyway replacing the two did the trick, all for under $3, I almost went out and bought a new monitor ;) Hope that helps.

Screen goes black but power light stays on


Hello. I had the same problem with my X2gen 19" (model MW19R)monitor. In my case, the monitor would turn off after 20 seconds or so but the blue power light would stay on as well. I had to replace a high voltage capacitor located in the backlight power supply board. There are 4 blue capacitors on the board which are identical and they are marked as 27J 3KV. Fortunately, I only had to replace one of these capacitors ( it was turning a yellowish brownish color ). Hope this helps.

X2gen MW19R picture only stays on for one to fifteen seconds...


Dear Chris,

Visually check the component :
Try checking on the power board , may be ESR of capacitor is faulty and power resistor shorted and burnt.
