Attempting to replace F153 Inverter board

Does anyone know where I can locate a replacement inverter board for my Vison F153? I have tried some of the obvious locations but not many seem to carry it. I would appreciate any help anyone can offer. Thanks

Re: Attempting to replace F153 Inverter board

You may have to look for it under a different brand name. One way is to get the FCC number off the tag and look it up here: That may show you a different manufacturer name and model number. Also, any info on the inverter itself can be useful. It may be made by Benq or Ambit, etc.

My monitor turns on eventually but it takes maybe 15 minutes. The light on the on/off switch blinks until it finally comes on. I know the computer is booting up. with a blank screen i put the password in...

It may have dying power supply due to bad caps, look for that first, may need more troubleshooting.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), 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:

Learn about bad caps:

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.
Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

I purchased a vison 19" monitor about a year ago model number v193WDB with DVI input and I am having problems with it. It starts up fine and works for a while then it goes dark. If I restart my computer...

Welcome to the world of disposable LCD monitors. I got one of these at Fry's, but have had no problem except that it won't accept HDMI input from my DVR.
Check the screen after it blacks using a flashlight to see if you can see the actual information displayed. The LCD is backlit with CCFL - cold cathode fluorescent light - tubes located at the sides or the top/bottom. They can go bad, and over draw the inverter, or the inverter, which converts ~12vdc to ~10,000Vac, can have capacitors which are low quality and are drying out, changing their value.
So, open the display up by un-snapping the plastic cover, removing the screws holding the metal support to the backside of the display, and then the back cover. Most have snap-together bezels that can be separated by using a thumbnail between the two pieces. You should then be able to inspect the power supply, inverter, and display logic board. Look for capacitors that have drooled or have their tops puffed up. Those are signs of failure.
Let me know what you find.

Hewlett-Packard vs17 half fixed, what to do next?


I have also seen this type of problem. Have you checked the large caps on the inverter board, no just the power supply board? Many LCD monitors have 2 caps on the inverter and I have had to replace them from time to time. The next thing to check would be the driver transistors. I hope this helps.

Sceptre X9G-Komodo IV

I recently came accross one of these monitors (Planar PE191M) with the identical issue. The resolution was to replace the two 470ufd 25V capacitors that are located on the main power board. The main power board also contains the audio circuit and more importantly the inverter circuit that drives the CCFL backlighting. The suspect caps were identified using an ESR meter; if you happen to have one of these meters you can confirm this is the issue with your unit(s), alternatively you can just replace the two capacitors and see if it resolves your issue. Hope this info helps someone out there.
