Flat screen wont turn on

MY *** of a boy friend had a temper tantrum and knocked over my 19 inch flat screen monitor now it will not turn on, any ideas on what is wrong or step by step instructions on how to fix it! I am computer illiterate but willing to try to fix it myself if I have some help thanks.

P.S I am not at home and cannot remember the brand name of it

Solution: Replace cap. Radio Shack sells a 1000uF, 35V cap for $2. This will work.

Why did the cap go bad? The cap is too close to a heat sink and over heated.

What does this cap do? This cap sends a signal to an IC which keeps the monitor 'on' after the power switch is pushed. When the cap is weak, AC ripple voltage is applied to the IC and it sends a signal to shut the monitor off.

Opening the Monitor: These monitors are difficult to open.

The two plastic pieces snap together and must be pried apart with a flat screw driver.

After removing the stand, you need to insert a flat screw driver at the bottom of the screen where two slots are located. Then work the screw driver around until the two plastic pieces are separated.

Remove the cover plate and unscrew the push button circuit board.

Unplug the monitor cords from the driver board and remove the screen.

Unscrew the mounting screws from the power supply board and remove.

You will need to pinch the plastic support in the middle of the board to remove.

Cap Replacement:

Cap is located near a copper heat sink and the value will be on the side of the cap. It will be bulged up on the top. You will see burn marks on the board surrounding the cap. Unsolder the cap.

Install the new cap and solder. Make sure you connect + of the cap to + marked on the board.

Be careful not to solder across joints.

Keep leads long so you can bend the cap as far away from the heat sink as possible.

Reassemble monitor and turn on.

This should solve the problem.

Monitor went out and only displays a black screen. The power button indicates that the power is on but no picture. The model is an HP f1905 19 inch flat screen monitor.


Use a flashlight and shine on your screen. Look carefully is you still see the image on the screen. If you do, this is an indication that the monitor is still working, but the backlight has failed. A common solution with backlight-failures is to open the monitor, and look if you see any "swollen" capacitors (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague). If you see one you should replace it. Only open your monitor if you know what you're doing and have basic knowledge of electronics and soldering.

Blue light flashing but cant picture on screen


Your LCD screen is not recieving a signal from your computer. See my published guide, entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!
In this situation you would want to make sure your screen is working by trying it on a friends computer or connecting your computer to a friends screen.

All the best!

I have a AOC flat screen monitor and it got wet and it will turn on for a few seconds but the screen is blurry and looks wet itself , is there anyway to fix this ?


hello my friend, try to blower your monitor. Open it and see if inside of the monitor is not wet cause if it is wet then it could cause some short circuit problem so the best thing to do is to let the monitor check if it is wet and dry it up before turning on
