Question about LG Flatron 915FT 19" CRT Monitor

4 Answers

Screen shrinks monentarily then zooms in untill screen is blank, then turns off.

It will work fine for a while (5 minutes to 5 days) but then it will start doing the shrink/zoom thing. I turn the monitor off, wait a few seconds then turn it back on and I see vericle lines and the screen is too small then it zooms out again. After turning it off and on a few times, it has eventually started working properly. I've changed the screen size, refresh rate, downloaded drivers from LG, even switched video cards but nothing works. Any help would be appriciated.

OK PEOPLE I GOT THE SOLUTION TO THE MAG INNOVISION LT916S GOING BLACK AFTER ANY LENGTH OF TIME BEING ON!!! I JUST REPAIRED MINE TODAY! THE PROBLEM IS THE CAPACITOR BANK IN THE POWER SUPPLY PART THERE ARE 6 CAPACITORS I HAD A FEW LEAKY ONES "NOT GOOD" THE CAPACITOR SPECS ARE AS FOLLOWS 470UF 25V 105 DEGREES C MEANING 470 MICRO FARAD/25 VOLTS I HAD A VERY HARD TIME FINDING THE 25 VOLT ONES SO I WENT WITH 470UF/35V 85 DEGREES C THEY MIGHT NOT LAST AS LONG AS THE OTHERS DUE TO THE TEMP RATING HOWEVER, IM THINKING SINCE THEY CAN HANDLE UP TO 35 VOLTS IT SHOULD EVEN OUT AND HEY, ITS WORKING SO FAR SO GOOD!! THE CAPACITORS ARE FROM UNDER A DOLLAR A PIECE TO A COUPLE BUCKS EACH. THE CAPACITORS HAVE A BOLD LINE RUNNING UP ON ONE SIDE INDICATING THE POLARITY. BOLD LINE SIDE IS "-" SIDE WITHOUT BOLD LINE ITS "+" THE POWER SUPPLY BOARD HAS THE POLARITYS STAMPED ON THE BOARD ITSELF UNDER EACH CAPACITOR. EASY 30 MINUTE FIX IF YOU ARE LEARY ABOUT SOILDERING, FIND A FRIEND THAT KNOWS HOW TO. ITS REALLY NOT THAT HARD THOUGH AND YOULL HAVE SOME DECENT ROOM TO WORK WITH. I PROMISE WHEN YOU OPEN IT UP YOU WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY SEE AT LEAST 4 OF THE 6 CAPACITORS BULDGING AT THE TOPS MAYBE EVEN LEAKING BROWNISH STUFF. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR THOUGH AND REPLACE ALL OF THEM WHILE YOUR IN THERE "THE SIX BIGGER ONES ONLY" IF ANY OF YOU NEED FURTHER HELP OR ANY OTHER QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PROJECT PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AT BTLEE26@HOTMAIL I DAMN NEAR WENT CRAZY TRYING TO FIND A SOLUTION ON HOW TO FIX THIS THING SINCE I SPENT OVER 300 BUCKS FOR IT NEW. AND IM BY NO MEANS A EXPERT WHEN IT COMES TO THIS STUFF BUT I DO KNOW A FEW THINGS. AS IM SURE MOST OF YOU DO. TAKE CARE YOU ALL AND THANKS TO THE GY WHO MENTIONED SOMETHING ABOUT CAPACITORS BEING BAD IN HIS. open it up and check that 6 capacitors. mine had the lines on the screen and eventually died completly. almost certain thats whats wrong. ive had three other people tell me that thier capacitors in thier where buldging/leaking at the tops just check it out if they are your in luck cause its a easy job and cheap if you do it yourself! good luck!

Your problem is likely caused by a cold solder connection in the yoke/horizontal deflection circuit. Most likely easily repaired by most service shops.

I had a similiar issue that caused all my Microsoft applications to zoom out to 500%. It also caused PDF documents to shrink and go the the last page. The issue was caused by the Intellatype software that came with my ergonomic keyboard. The issue was resolved by disabling the zoom feature of the sofware on the zoom tab.

Question of noone?? In one of your posted solutions you mention a 'cold solder joint'. Do you think that is what may be wrong with all of these Zerox monitors?? I posted my problem here on the forum, and quite a few others seem to have experienced the same problem. I eventually sent my unit back to Calif while I visited Thailand for a month. Upon my return I had received the same unit back (via serial number). It has worked properly thus far for 6 months. But they never sent one piece of paper back with the returned unit describing the repair or whatever. I have no idea of what problem and/or how likely it is it will occur again??

After a few minutes picture shrinks to single line on screen and then powers off


Since the set works initially, there are likely poor solder connections at the vertical IC. If this is not addressed soon, the IC will fail and need to be replaced. The vertical IC is a small flat IC with about 11 pins or so that may be marked LA7837 or something similar. Try resoldering the pins first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace teh IC. Feel free to post the marking here so I can verify you have the correct one.

Display zooms and blanks


Sounds like it has a CRT and the EHT is collapsing. Maybe a dry joint around the timebase output transformer.

Black screen and no sound


I realized that there is a 90 day warrantee on parts and a 30 day limited warrantee on labor for the  repairs that were done. As I stated, the original problem was the picture shrinking after a few minutes of the set being on. The repair firm took my control board with them. When they came back to install the repaired control board in my set there was a load spark during the installation, after which I had a black screen and no sound.  The repair firm took my set them and installed a "CAP Kit", a STRM6511, and a "D1881". The set worked perfectly until two days ago.
I called the repair firm an they are coming out this Thursday to check out my TV.   I am hoping the problem is related to the failure of one of the parts installed to fix a similar problem which occurred after the sparking incident.

60" Projection - Screen shrinks down then back up


 
I had the exact same problem. The screen would shrink then expand. After thrity minutes it would correct itself. Then one day it just broke - no sound and no video. I searched these forums but did not find clear instructions on how to fix it. I gave up and called in a repair tech. He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes.  To help others like me I documented the fix and created a step by quide and repair kit to fix the problem. You can find it here. http://www.magnavoxhelp.com
