Question about Planar PL2010M 20" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Replacement External Power Supply

I need to replace the external power supply on my Planar PL2010M LCD monitor. It is the type that has a standard AC cord that goes into a box and outputs to a single DC Jack. I can not find the specifications for the output (Volts/Amps/Watts etc) nor the size of the output prong to have a new one built. Can anyone help me with this? Are there any less expensive alternatives to purchasing a new one ($70) from Planar website? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. xtreme

So the old power supply doesn't have the output voltage, current and polarity noted on the label? What a ripoff! *grin* Did you look on the case near where it plugs into the monitor? Sometimes that will tell you the voltasge and polarity. Poliarity? Get that one wrong and the monitor could be cooked instantly! But it's usually positive. I found a completed eBay listing that had this info: "the power supply which the seller used to power up this Planar Flat Panel is inventoried as follows: ViewSonic 12V Power Adaptor Model # SYS1126-5012" I looked that one up, and it's listed as 12V at 4.17A. PC Hub has them for $28.62: http://www.pchub.com/uph/laptop/345-19804-2285/AC_Power_Adapter_5V-12V_Others_SYS1126-5012.html Good luck!

I have a broken PL2010M. The back shows the power requirement as 12V DC, 6.67 amps. The polarity is not indicated, but appears to center pin positive. I'm looking for a replacement inverter, if you hear of one.

Thank you for the lead. I'm trying to verify whether that power supply works on the specific model that I have or not. (No there weren't any markings around the power supply plug-in) The Viewsonic adapter works on the 19" Monitor, but the 20" and 21" appear to use new (and very different) power supply options. I'll follow up on the lead though and see if I can find someone who can verify that it will work on the PL2010M. Planar's lips are sealed! Thanks again.

How can i find a power cord to fit this monitor? The one I have is not getting power to it . It was tested by Best buy.


Most monitors have the same type power cord. You can order them cheap off of Amazon and eBay.
Heres on that should work: http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-03134-Universal-IEC320C13/dp/B00005113L/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1298845316&sr=8-1

Hi My Planar (PL2010M) suddenly went black. On restart, it flashes briefly but never comes on. Any suggestions?


I have a similar problem on my Planar PD470; power supply failed after about a year and a half. I heard that their HDTV power supplies had a higher than normal failure rate. I have someone working with the company to resolve, but I'm not optimistic... Bah Humbug. How long have you had your set?

I need a replacement power supply and cable and I don't know what the part number or name of a compatable power supply would be. What do I order or where do I look for this without spending a ton of money?...


You can purchase replacement LCD monitor power supplies in numerous places, for example on eBay or in online shops. You can ask a seller to assist you in selecting a proper one.
The most popular specs for such monitor supply would be 12V and a minimum of 5A current rating; the higher current rating on the PS the better, you will have more reserve.

Planar monitor goes black, what's the solution


Check the power supply first.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Planar 2010M auto adjust


This may be related to a power supply problem that these monitor have. I think you need to fix the power supply board inside the display itself. It's giving the logic board and backlights fluctuating power and they have weird / intermittant problems.
There is a supplier of power boards online, you can google them with numbers from the board but I don't suggest using them. Look for information on the company before you buy from them. I've seen a lot of complaints for this "international" company.


First check that you are getting a strong 12V from the external power adapter. If so, the problems may be as simple as changing out a few capacitors. (about $8 in new capacitors, plus shipping)

On the PL2010M monitors you need the following parts. I've added digikey part numbers to make life easier:

P10271-ND 220UF 25V Capacitor (3 or 4 depending on PS)
P10275-ND 470UF 25V Capacitor (1)
P10221-ND 470UF 10V Capacitor (4)

If you're not comfortable with soldering and de-soldering electronics, take it to a local technician for the work and give them the parts list above. That should work to fix your issues. I've fixed several of these monitors so far. All the problems were related to the power supplies having bad capacitors. Same with the Planar PL1700 LCD monitors.
There is also a single capacitor on the display logic board, but I haven't seen this one go bad yet.
Good luck!

This is the same problem I've seen several times. Fix the power supply board inside the display itself. It's giving the logic board and backlights fluctuating power and they just can't keep up.

There is a supplier of power boards online, you can google them with numbers from the board but I don't suggest using them. Look for information on the company also. I've seen a lot of complaints for this "international" company.

Backlight replacement


Are you sure it's the backlight? Many Planar LCD monitors have issues with the capacitors on their power supply boards. The symptoms include a power light and no picture, or just a flash of a picture when powering up and then nothing.

The fix for some of these problems is about $8 on new capacitors (Plus shipping).

On the PL2010M monitors you need the following parts. I've added digikey part numbers to make life easier:

P10271-ND 220UF 25V Capacitor (3/4 depending on PS)

P10221-ND 470UF 10V Capacitor (4)

If you're not comfortable with soldering and de-soldering electronics, take it to a local technitian for the work and give them the parts list above. That should work if the failure looks like I described. I've fixed several of these monitors so far. All the problems were related to the power supplies. Same with the Planar PL1700 LCD monitors.
