Sanyo A/C Unit Model CL3632A

Could this unit be use to cool a computer server room?

This unit has shut down on us twice in the past 2 months and we can not figure out what may be the cause?

Once we turn the indoor unit off and wait for 30 second and then put it back in the on postion it comes back on.

SOURCE: LCD monitor shuts down every after 2-3 seconds

dustcore025, Need a little more info here. Do you know age of monitor? Was it or did it display a "perfect' image on it the day before? Is it under warranty? How far are you willing to go to try and repair this thing? Do you know how to "part" the snap together plastic back cover from the bezel, after removing the pedestal? This sounds to me like a Switch-mode-power-supply or Inverter problem that occurs when some Electrolytic Filter Capacitors get a little bit TIRED of being constantly subjected to high temperatures near heatsinks that are used to keep semiconductors within operating limits. You can determine how bad this may be if you can do a test and remember what happens. Here is what to do. Make sure PC is fully booted displaying WIN desktop or some other screen. Next, with someone to keep hitting the CTRL or SP bar key every 20-40 seconds while you reconnect both cables of your MM17 back to the PC video port and ac outlet. Now try to turn on the monitor and note exactly what you see and for how long. Did it have a sharp clear image, even for 1-2 seconds? did the screen go black? OK! Next thing is to shine a bright flashlight onto the screen 2 inches away from where you know there was something a few seconds ago. Try it at different angles and not if you see anything. get back to me with results of test. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com BYE for now.

kmzwolski, NO, NO, NO!!!! Do NOT wait. Use your warranty NOW!!! Do not let them off the hook. Could be any of the things you mentioned, plus "cold", intermittant solder joint, thermally/vibration fracture of solder joint on printed circuit board (SMPS/inverter circuit) Let me know how you fair with SAMSUNG. lmistyrel on aim.com or 12fixlouie on fixya.

When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

I have a KDS 26"


The click is the relay for the high voltage section. The fact that the unit shuts down, tells me that the internal protection circuits have detected a problem and are shutting down the unit to prevent further damage. This unit requires repair. Because of the high voltages present, I would recommend professional service for this.

Sir i got a viewsonic lcd 19" model 1918 it


Hi,
Let the unit cool down for 30 min., give proper ventilation because your processor have a heat sensor, once reached the peak temp the unit will automatically shuts off. Keep away all the obstruction from your vent.
Let me know if the symptom is still there...
Thanks for using fixya.

Everytime i turn my monitor on the screen comes on then goes straight back off can anybody help ?


briiggen, You will need to find out why the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps (2 or 3) fail to sustain "white-light" output!!! The "electronic ballast circuit" called an "INVERTER", supplys high voltage ac 600-1200volts to light them up!!! When the other internal power supply (called a "switch-mode-power supply") detects a "fault condition" it will go into what is commonly known as "SHUT-DOWN-MODE" to try and prevent a "catastrophic-event " from occurring! e.g. sparks, smoke, fire. Retrevo .com lists unit as "over the hill" but not "ready to retire".Some "black screen of death"ccfl lcd displays can be brought back to life on a DIY fix for less than $6 in parts that will need replacing on the SMPS board, and unit may work fine for another 2 to 4 years. Go search for the longer and more useful DIY video clips of "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" at YOUTUBE now! To see if you will attempt a DIY or contract-out the required "refurbishment" work. It's your call!!! Fix the unit or trade-in for new. But remember, if you use it as trade-in, the sales guy might take your unit and give it to the technician in the back room, who will open the unit and possibly repair it with some new capacitors installed on the SMPS board. He just might have a nice 24" unit for his kids to use. DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST!!! Then make decision. I'm lmistyrel over on aim or 12fixlouie here on fixya. Bye for now.

My monitor picture comes on for like a second, then it shuts off. The green light power indicator stays on. I test the monitor on different wires/computers and its doing the same thing.


b18dragon, Power supply inside unit will need to be fixed if Sony warranty not valid. SMPS detects fault condition and goes into shutdown mode. Can't be fixed w/software. Do some reading (RESEARCH) about "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" , "CCFL inverter supplys" , "switch-mode-power-supplys" to understand your monitors problem. Also watch some video clips at YOUTUBE on "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair". Then you will be able to make decision to do a DIY repair or contract out the work having unit REFURBED or repaired locally. Does Sony have a cash+dead unit swapout program for monitors that are "JUST" 1 to 10 months past warranty?? You have a few options, the question is "what will you do?" Try some of these other sites for information. www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and www.badcaps.net , www.lcdparts.net www.rexim.com , www.jkllamps.com I hope this helps you to make a good decision. 12fixlouie Bye for now.

Monitor turns on for less than a second, then off. I bought a 19" Samsung LCD monitor (953BW) about 10 months ago and the first time I used it, it would only switch on for a split second and shut down. ...


Although the OP was 2009. I had this problem.

I simply replaced the power board. Which I bought from ebay for $20AUD.
It was real easy to remove as well. Just have a look for youtube videos.

Fixed!

Samsung SyncMaster 940MW screen problem


from what it sounds like Tom is that you have a heating problem. As soon as it warms up your monitor goes black. First I would Shut it down for a couple of hours. Unhook the power cord and let it completely cool down. Some monitors have a temperature breaker. When temp reaches a point higher than the set breaker it will shut off or power down. After I would say 2-3 hrs of cooling power it up and see what happens. If after a certian amount of time it does it again you have a over heat problem. If that happens again go to your favorite search engine and enter syncmaster 940mw support. Goto the manufactures web site and find your model. You may be able to find a solution to the over heat there. There is also a possibility there was a recall on that particular model for a overheat problem.
