LG L1730S 17" LCD Monitor

Hi Anand,

You need to check your power options settings and modify it , so that your monitor does not turn off automatically.

If you are using windows xp , go in control panel and then there would be an icon for power options , double click the power options and then you would find settings which read turn off monitor , turn off hard disk etc... select the turn off monitor to never mode or as per your convenience and you would have your problem solved.

Hope this helps.

My monitor is 170s black 17" it switches on and off with different delays of time sometimes it works for 5-10 minutes and again switches off by itself, pressing switch sometimes works sometimes not....

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

When i turn on computer cap lock and scroll lock flash screen remains blank than computer shuts down after 1 minute what is causing this

This problem is caused by a bad inverter. You can find one on site for a decent price. That's where I get most of mine from $10 to $20. The inverter is located on the bottom front area of your LCD just under the plastic, and it is very easy to replace.

My screen turned black and began flashing.

Kim, The LCD display requires WHITE light so you can see all the colors on the screen. Most BLACK screen problems will be a power supply problem internal to the monitor. I monitor is still under warranty, have Viewsonic repair it. Here are a few more options that could be available if unit is out of warranty. 1. Trade in for new widescreen display. Please note that the electronics technician at the store will evaluate your monitor and try to repair it for less than $10 in parts! He or she will keep it as a spare unit or sell your monitor for $40 - $60 to a buddy that needs a spare or second monitor. 2. Check to see if Viewsonic has a CASH+old unit swap-out program. They ship you a REFURBISHED same model unit w/ 30day warranty. Yes! They will REFURBISH your old monitor and ship it to another customer. But that's only if a swap program is in effect! 3. Check with a local TV/LCD monitor repair shop, to see if they refurbish LCD monitors with new or rebuilt "switch-mode-power-supply" / "inverter supply" / "cold-cathode-fluoiescent-lamps" . 4. Most costly option. Buy new display AND have your VX910 repaired and kept as spare unit! Before you do any of the above mentioned options visit (FYI) YOUTUBE and search for and view the longer (8-12 minute) video clips of "LCD monitor repair" and "LCD monitor disassembly" to learn what the most common causes of LCD BLACK SCREEN failure are and what parts are used to fix them. Also visit and , for more information. If your VX910 falls into the FAILED CCFL backlight catagory get back here to fixya and let us know what option you will persue. If this was helpful to you or someone else, rate this response on fixya. 12fixlouie by for now.

jrfisher, Are you screwed? Maybe YES. MAYBE NO. If you're resourceful and smart, clever, Why don't you Search YOUTUBE for LCD monitor disassembly video clips that are about 8-10 min long. Also check for video clips of typical LCD repair, and find out the most common parts on the SMPS/inverter printed circuit boards that FAIL!! You just might be impressed and want to take a stab at doing your own repair of your monitor!! What do you have to lose? Maybe you can keep it as a spare if you fix it? Get back to me if you have a problem finding the stuff you need on YOUTUBE. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel good luck the repair. It sounds like the switch-mode-power-supply is failing in your unit.
