Question about Sharp Computers & Internet

3 Answers

Help! Any assistance or advice would be very much appreciated. I have a Sharp LL T19D1-B LCD Minitor purchased a little over 3 years ago. I had a mac plugged into one analogue input of monitor, screen suddenly displayed random vertical multi coloured lines then wouldn't power up again. I've disconnected everything, checked cable and graphics card output on another monitor - which are fine. I can change the input channels on monitor but all I get is a bright green screen and no apparent output from graphics card. Any suggestions much appreciated. Regards, Paul

    Thank you both ToddG and kornho. I guess it's time for the soldering iron as I've got nothing to lose should it go wrong! Could either of you point me towards the right board within the monitor then I can try and get the components and a steady hand to attempt to fix the problem. Will let you know how I get on, Thanks again for your advice.  Cheers, Paul

This is the power supply inside the monitor itself. It is board that has three capacitors and they are blown out. It is a very inexpensive fix, if you are good with a soldering iron, if not let mw know and I will direct you to a company that can take care of this, for usually $30.00

    These should more or less be the instructions for the monitor. I have adapted them from other monitors, so the disassembly could be a little off, but the PCB capacitors is correct

    The cause of this problem is the failure of 1 (or more) of 3 capacitors that are a part of the power supply.

    Tools needed
    Phillips head screw drivers.
    Flat tip screw driver.
    Soldering iron and solder.
    Wire cutter

    Skills needed

    Only basic tools and simple soldering techniques are required. There are a lot of steps listed below, but they are quite simple and detailed.

    We are dealing with electricity here, so take the necessary precautions not to electrocute yourself or burn your house down.
    Please take written notes. It is all too easy to forget how something plugged into something else.

    The fix
    Replace the three capacitors with new ones.

    Order 3 capacitors with the following specifications: 470uF 25V High Temp Radial Capacitor (470µF 25V).

    Disconnect the monitor from the computer and the 110 power source.
    Remove both cables completely.

    Lay the monitor face down on a large flat surface. You may want to lay a towel down beneath the monitor to protect the bezel.

    Remove the 4 phillips head screws that secure that stand to the back of the computer and set the stand aside.

    Remove the 3 phillips head screws that secure the bottom of the bezel.

    Using a wide, flat bladed screwdriver, carefully pry the back cover off. It is made out of plastic, so be careful. It will pop off fairly easily. Once off, set it aside.

    Note the rectangular center metal piece that is screwed to the main body of the monitor. This is the where the power supply is located.
    There will be adhesive foil stuck around various locations on the back of the monitor. Lift it away if you can...or VERY CAREFULLY cut it if you cannot. CAUTION: There are wires beneath most of these foil pieces, so be very careful.

    Make a note of where each wire goes.

    Unplug all the wires.

    Remove the 4 phillips head screws that secure the rectangular center metal piece to the main body of the monitor. Withdraw the metal piece and set the main body of the monitor aside.

    Flip the removed piece over so as to expose the circuit boards.

    Pull off the clear plastic protective piece. Try to keep it intact as you will want to put it back in place during assembly.

    The power supply circuit board is the one into which the power cord is normally fitted.

    Remove the 4 phillips head screws that secure the power supply circuit board in place. Note that one of the screws is different (designed to ensure a good ground connection). Note where it is located so you can return it to the same location.

    Very carefully withdraw the power supply circuit board. It is connected to the neighboring board with a pin connector that slides out.

    Identify the three capacitors. They are black with silver tops and have a gray stripe on one side that signifies the location of the negative post. The manufacturer is CapXon and the "470uF 25V" (470µF 25V) specification is printed on the side.

    Note the location of the negative post. The circuit board is also marked.

    Using a soldering iron, unsolder each post from the board:
    Ensure the soldering iron is very hot.

    Hold the board in a vertical position.

    Use a finger to place light pressure on the capacitor as if you are prying the capacitor away from the post that you will be unsoldering.

    Touch the tip of the soldering iron to the post (on the under side of the board).

    Maintain pressure on the capacitor as the soldering iron heats the post.

    When the solder liquefies, the capacitor will pull away from that post.

    Repeat this technique for both posts on each capacitor.

    Insert the new capacitors being sure that the negative post is inserted in the proper hole. The circuit board is marked. Or, you can refer to your notes.

    Solder each post in place.

    Trim the excess length off each post.

    Reassemble in reverse order.

    Test the monitor with the power cord only (no connection to the computer) before plugging it back into the computer.

Worked for my SCEPTRE x22wg-Gamer Black 22" 5ms(GTG), only it had 4 of the Capacitors

My problem was that the monitor kept trying to power on for hours at a time untill it would actually turn on. hope this is helpful for other people with SCEPTRE monitors.

If you tested the video card and the connection from your monitor to your mac and that worked using another monitor.. you need to replace your lcd display, your description does sound like monitor that just died.

unless you are trained you don't want to start poking the inside of your lcd display.

Can you upgrade cpu in dell 15 i5559-4682slv to i7 ?

It is almost impossible to upgrade proprietary makes like Dell and HP. The are big enough to have motherboards made for them manufactured on price point. This means that they are not built with upgrade in mind. Also the cases are made to fit their motherboard and theirs only.

Go to a computer builder and get a good case, buy a good quality motherboard and equip it with what you can afford. In two years you can upgrade as processors have moved on. Two years after that, you can swap out the motherboard, processor and memory.

I wonder if the motherboard has bluetooth integrated or I have to put an external bluetooth devise

One way to find out:
Click on the start button > right click on 'computer' > choose properties > (top left) device manager > you will see a list of drivers
Bluetooth should be near the top
IF you don't see Bluetooth, you will need to purchase an external Bluetooth receiver.

Where can I purchase a replacement remote control for tv in WA

Exact OEM replacement remote you can try the manufacturer or No store will carry what you are looking for, but you can find universal remotes in any electronic store on the planet. Wal-mart, RadioShack, BestBuy, etc. Whatever is closest to your location. Good rule of thumb is if they sell TVs, they sell universal remotes.

I have doctor antivirus pop ups

Unfortunately, the only way I've found to be completely rid a machine of this is to wipe the hard drive and reload the operating system. This is an advertisement virus and this particular bug leaves several sleepers that lie inactive making it near impossible for any antivirus to find them. Once you get rid of the active virus, one or two, but not all of the sleepers will activate leaving several more hidden and inactive, and what makes it even harder to "get rid of" is that it hides the sleepers in file that your antivirus normally doesn't check on a regular basis, ie... picture files, music, screen savers, etc.. It will also hide them in registry files, so doing a system repair won't work either.
