Re: 151FPb

One of my customers had the same problem. So last night, I took it apart and found a cold solder connection on a coil that had white goop on it. Goop is usually put on coils to stop oscillations. This is probably an inherrant problem. If you tap the back of the monitor with the back of a screwdrive, it should start working for awhile. Take it apart and take the shield off and do the same till you find the loose component. Don't hit it too hard. When you find the loose component. If you move the component back and and forth, it should work and not work. Take the board off and re-solder the component. Put the board back on and tap it lightly and see if you got the right component. If not repeat the proceedure until it works or pitch it...

This is a common indication that the power supply board has bad filter capacitors. When the capacitors go out the power board can not start up correctly so you get either a white screen, a flashing power light and no display, a flickering display or no power at all. The repair is easy, it just requires replacing the bad capacitors on the power supply board. About 10 minutes and a little soldering and your monitor should be as good as new. Here is a link to a repair kit with the correct parts to do the repair.

Screen goes pink and green starting with a few pixels

Best thing to do, try a different known working monitor to hook up to the computer. If the screen works and doesn't change colors then you know its the original monitor that is bad.

If you hook up the known working monitor and the same problem happens then you know its the video card that is bad and the video card would have to be replaced.

Mw22u monitor has white screen.

Manufacturer out of business. Local repair shops want more $ to fix than the cost of a new one.
Solution --- Trash old and replace with new display.

This is a problem with the cable that runs from your laptop to the monitor.
Or the VGA Output socket, on your laptop itself.

1:) Try using the monitor, on a different PC Or Laptop.
2:) Toggle The LCD/VGA Button on the laptop. ( This should change the display Mode )
Sometimes you Have A fn key, on the keyboard. Press fn And LCD/VGA.
3:) Check that there is no damage to the cable from laptop to Monitor.
If none of the above work, it,ll be the monitor itself. faulty panel or invertor board.

Benq lcd Displays only white

Most often the all white screen is the result of a missing voltage to the LCD panel. We usually find an open fuse on the panel circuit board. Unfortunately replacing the fuse does not usually fix the problem.
