Question about BenQ FP71G 17" LCD Monitor

Monitor goes blank automatically after about 40 minutes...

I bought this monitor about a year ago and has been working fine till last week. One day, my monitor just go blank. I thought it was nothing so I turn off my computer. But the next time I used it, it goes blank again after about 40 minutes. Rebooting my CPU won't help as monitor goes blank soon right after logging into Windows (I'm using XP Pro). I thought it was driver malfunction(Vga card nVidia 6600), so I re-installed with the lastest driver, but to no avail. The only solution I have at the moment is to turn the monitor off for quite some time before using for another 40 minutes. By the way, rebooting my monitor allows me 1 second before it goes blank again. Another thing, after I turn off my CPU but left the monitor running, it shows; and to burn-in OFF It's very frustating. Please help.

    I have an nvidia 6600 gt also, and I have exactly the same problem. Sometimes it simply changes resolution to an inexistant one and if I'm lucky I can see enough to revert it. But really, usually it just goes black and I can't do anything...sucks.

Hi Randygui, Sounds like the back light inverter board is bad. It's a very common problem. LCD's use four small cold compact fluorescent bulbs to back light the display. (thats what gives the LCD it's brightness allowing you to see it) The inverter board runs these lights and when they go bad they will typically show symptoms like you have or the monitor power light comes on and you have either no display or a very dim display. If you ever have one that has no display but the power light is on you can check by shining a flashlight directly into the LCD from the front (right into the screen) if you can see an image then it's either the inverter board (most likely) or the CCFL bulbs have gone bad. The inverter board and CCFL's are replaceable. Good Luck, El Duderino

Any links to a source for a replacement board? I'm having a devil of a time finding one.

Actually we were thinking of repairing the board I have... we have the board out and have identified the likely transistors (C5707) and have micro-soldering capability. But wondering about possible fuses that we can't ID... (not the power supply fuse)... are there fuses for each of the lamp transformers? Any source for schematics?

Try another monitor on it to verify it is the video card that has gone bad. If it does not work with another monitor then that is the likely culprit.

Screen flashes "on" and then goes black on start up...


This is usually a bad capacitor problem. They would need to be replaced, or get a new monitor. Some shops will work on them, but you have to weigh the cost vs buying a new monitor for almost the same price.

There are some websites on repairing your own, but you need to know a bit about soldering and such.

What is wrong with my AL1711


This is possibly an inverter. When the monitor goes out, examine the LCD to see if you can see a faint image of the video being displayed. IF so, replace inverter. If not, possibly a bad LCD or video circuitry.

It's probably your dc power supply.

Mine would blank just 2-3 seconds after power-on.
I pulled this monitor out of the garbage - someone threw it away. I found any old 12vdc power supply I had laying around (1 from an hp scaner 1250mA, another rated at 600mA) neither could supply the current (amps) required to run the backlights, therefore backlights shutdown, monitor goes blank--monitor stilled powered on, but black.

I tried all of the disassembly, re-solder various solder joints on the LCD Inverter board and removing the heat/magnetic shield from inside the back cover of the monitor. Nothing worked.

I bought a Segate 80gb external hard disk drive that came with a 12vdc power supply, looks like a typical laptop power supply, rated at 3A (3000mA). Plugged it to the monitor, it powered up, and it works flawlessly.

Monitor does not work


sounds like a slightly damaged power supply. try powering up with an equivalent supply. if only an ac wall cord is plugged in for power, then internal supply is at fault
