Disconnected lcd from case but connectors came out need wiring di

I have a xerox xa7 19i lcd monitor and I had white out on start up.
I saw your thread on capacitor replacement and step by step dismantling instructions which looked like the answer to my problem.
I purchased the capacitors, and followed the instructions, but when lifting the lcd screen away from the casing the wire connectors pulled free before I could mark them for reassembly.
I need a wiring diagram or instructions as to which connectors connect to which ( There are four connectors each containing two different coloured wires on each side ).
Can anyone help me with this problem?

    Yes I am refering to the 4 connectors that connect the LCD screen to the power board.

    I can tell you that all the connectors are interchangeable and as they disconnected themselves as I lifted the LCD screen away from the case, I have no way of telling which should connect to which.

    I have changed the 6x470uf 25v and 1x220uf 25v capacitors but I daren't connect and start up the monitor for fear of damaging the unit.

    What I am requesting is either a wiring diagram preferably but not necessarily in colour or failing that a detailed description of which connectors connect to which by means of their position from top to bottom as they appear inside the unit.

    Many thanks,

    sorry but the proview manual you kindly supplied is of no use.

    maybe I should give you a step by step rundown of what I did.

    I googled my monitor, reached your forum, and read the thread on white-out at start up, as this was the problem I was having.

    Rugauger, posted on 20th November, mentioned changing the capacitors as this had solved his problem and gave the link

    having gone to this link, the second entry by Guest posted 19th July, gave a detailed run through of how to dismantle the monitor which was extremely valuable to me, I followed his instructions, but as you will see from instruction 5 in this run through, he says to mark the connectors so that it is possible to reconnect them after replacing the capacitors. Unfortunately, the wires are very short and when I lifted the LCD screen away, the connectors pulled free by themselves and I now don't know in what order to reconnect them.

    It is frustrating to think that having replaced the capacitors, I potentially have a working monitor but I cannot check this until I reconnect these wires and power up.

    For fear of damaging the board and or the LCD screen, I am reluctant to try connecting by trial and error so I am requesting the correct reconnection sequence.

    I hope this has clarified my requirement and I look forward to your reply.

    Ok thanks, I am in an internet cafe at the moment (as obviously I have no monitor at home), so I will need to go home to obtain that information.

    I will post you the reply in about an hour.

    Many thanks,

    Hello again,

    In response to your request, I have noted the numbers on the power board, although I don't know which it is so I include all numbers on the board.

    At the top of the board (printed onto the board) it says Mirage Electronics co ltd AD-1700 REV:F date 1,14,2005 200-000-1700TLi version: A+.

    In the middle of the board (again printed on the board itself and in this case in larger characters)

    E67640 94V-0.

    There is also a small white label on the board that reads; 860-AB0-190DTL1-A AD-190DTL1 J33-007 D 8132951

    I don't own a camera so I can't submit any photos of the board, however, should this prove to be necessary, I'm sure I can borrow one.

    Many thanks,

    Steve Prior

    My mistake, sorry.

    The you tube video clip was very helpful as the board and capacitors shown were exactly the board I have. The poster said he didn't know if this was the invertor board or not but it seems from what you are saying that it is.

    If you watch the video clip, at the moment he removes the LCD screen, he shows the connectos and wires that I am having problems with. On the board they are all pink and white and from the LCD screen, two are pink and white and two are blue and black. each corner of the screen has 1 pink and white and 1 blue and black connector but all the board connectors are pink and white.

    Unfortunately, in the clip he just removes them all without saying which go where.

    again my appologies for the confusion but at least we are both on the same page now.

    If you could let me know which way these connectors go back together I can let you know if the caps solved the problem or if there is something else wrong.

    Many thanks for your patience and perseverance.

    Hello again,

    I decided to connect the wires anyway, as if it wasn't the power board it would be unlikely to damage the unit. Hey presto I have a working monitor again so many thanks for your help.

    However, when I now switch on the monitor it goes black after a second or two and remains so. Switching the monitor off and on four or five times, results in the monitor staying on and therefore it is usable but obviously this isn't normal. Any ideas?

    Again thanks for the help,

    Steve Prior

You can connect the plugs only to the right connectors, I see if I have schematics for this CRT.

    I am sorry, I confused the model, I see this is a Xerox Tft, are you talking about the connectors to the power board?

    I found a service manual for a proview, that mounts dame power board and digital board, see here Untitled

    Connectors should be the same.

    I have part list for Xerox Xa7 series at home, but no schematics or diagrams.

    See if the service manual above can do.

  • Ginko
    Ginko Dec 05, 2008

    I can see , you replaced the caps on the power board, try giving me the power board part number, that is printed on top of the board or on a sticker.
    Schematics for the monitor are not available, I can see if I find the board diagram.

  • Ginko
    Ginko Dec 05, 2008

    Send me also some picture of the board, showing the connectors, and the connectors cables.

    If I am not online I usually answer within 24.

    Regarding the repair you should have tested the caps before replacing, or checked that they were bulged or burnt. Even if a blown capacitor is the most common, there are more components and problems that can give white screen on a TFT. Lets hope the caps can fix it.

    If this is your power board:

    (from )

    Then the connector at the left should have same voltages, you need to test connectors voltage out , if they are the same, use the connector that is nearer to the cable.

    I need to put this disclaimer for your information ad safety.To test voltages out you need to work with live power on, this operation should be performed by a qualified technician, observing all the safety rules.

    If you still get the problem after connecting the board, that means that the problem were not the capacitors, in that case I can tell you what to test.

    I am going offline soon, I will see if I can at least find schematics for the PSU board.

    Let me know if the part I was referring to is the same as your board, that is a PN: E67640 PSU board, used on different monitors and TVs.

    I have got the right part, but is not a power supply board, it is an inverter board. This is confusing me.

    860-AB0190DTL1-A AD-190DTL1

    The complete part code is : (
    MAG LT916s 900P Inverter Mirage Electronics AD-1700 Rev:F 200-000-170DTL1 VERSION:A

    Sticker: 860-AB0190DTL1-A AD-190DTL1 J22-001 A 5083725)

    If you had white screen with light , the inverter should be OK.

    When the inverter board is faulty you get no light, or light flickering, or dim light , or monitor turning off after few minutes, or wavy lines.

    The inverter is a variable high voltage power board , thet energizes the LCD backlight.

    When you get intense ligt eith no picture usually the inverter is fine, it is either the main board or the power board.

    Moreover the inverter should have only two connectors, and they are different.

    Let me know if you have replaced inverter caps or PSU caps.

    Watch this movies on disassembly a similar TFT, they may help.

    If you need to connect back the inverter, there should be no problem, if it is the power board, you should have same voltages on both connectors, the voltages must be tested before connecting it.

A friends laptop is only showing a white screen

Step 1:
Fix a White Screen on an LCD Monitor

b>When an LCD screen has turned completely white, there are three normal causes: the screen is defective, the video cable is not connected correctly, or the graphics card on the motherboard of the computer is faulty. You will need to troubleshoot these possibilities to determine which problem you have. If you are not experienced in working on computer equipment, you should not attempt to disassemble your LCD screen because you could easily damage it. Seek professional assistance unless you have experience working on computer hardware.

Disconnect the white LCD screen from the computer by unscrewing the blue monitor cable. Connect the working LCD screen to your computer by attaching its blue monitor cable to the same slot. If your computer display does not show on the functioning LCD screen, try rebooting your computer. If it still does not display, the problem is with your computer's graphic card on the motherboard. Seek professional repair assistance. If your computer display shows normally on the working LCD screen, proceed to Step 2. Unplug the LCD monitor with the white screen. Disassemble the rear panel of the monitor with the small screwdriver. Carefully separate the screws into piles so that you can keep track of how to reassemble the monitor. Locate the internal video cable, a gray cable with a plug on the end that connects to the main components of the screen. See the References section for photos of the video cable for assistance. Unplug the cable, checking for any debris or blockage. Reconnect the cable firmly. Reassemble the LCD screen. Plug it in and connect it to your computer. If the screen is still white, you have a defective LCD screen. You will need to replace it or take it to a professional repair service for assistance.
b> b> b> Without this test you'll have to guess because as I mentioned before this could either bad motherboard or bad LCD screen.

You'll have to disconnect the video cable from the LCD screen (connector 2) and the inverter board (connectors 3 and 1). After that you connect another working screen and test video. For this purpose I'm using one of my test LCD screens. My test screen is cracked and because of that you see a wide white band in the center but it still works fine for this test.

The original screen is white but my test screen works normal (except the crack of course) and I can see the image. After this test I can tell that the problem must be related to the screen. After I assembled everything back together and connected the original LCD, it's still white. CONCLUSION. In my case this problem is related to the LCD screen and it has to be replaced. b> b>

My acer laptop shows whitescreen in suddenly . it will correct in restart time. after some ieme it will repeats.. laxmi machina belthangady

Actually some most related causes of the white screen problem are the one of the mention below.

1. Loose connection between the video cable and the LCD screen.
2. Defective LCD screen.
3. Defective motherboard

Have you noticed that in some cases the laptop screen may turn white because of poor connection between the video cable and the LCD screen. If you want to check this connection, you’ll have to take apart the display panel because the connector is located on the back side of the LCD screen.

You just check the video cable connection first. Reconnecting the video cable may fix your problem. If reconnecting the video cable doesn’t help, most likely you have a problem either with the LCD screen or with the motherboard.

Most likely you still can use the laptop with an external monitor.
Just connect the monitor to the VGA port on the back or side of your laptop and then switch the video output from internal to external mode.

When you turn on the laptop, it starts but the image on the screen is completely white right from the beginning.

On some laptops, in order to be able to use the external monitor,
you have to connect it to the laptop and then restart the laptop so the external monitor is detected by the laptop.

The best way to find out witch one is causing the problem is testing the laptop with another working LCD screen. Without this test you’ll have to guess because as I mentioned before this could either bad motherboard or bad LCD screen.

You’ll have to disconnect the video cable from the LCD screen (connector 2) and the inverter board (connectors 3 and 1). After that you connect another working screen and test video.

White screen

This could be caused for a number of reasons. First thing to determine is if the computer is bad or just the screen. Hook up a external monitor to the laptop and turn it on and use the FN key to turn on the external monitor port. If the computer is running fine with the external monitor then you have a bad LCD or LCD inverter. which is replacable but expensive.. you would want to look at getting a new laptop or using it with the external monitor.

Westinghouse lcd monitor 19" - screen turns white

I have the same problem with my LCD tv... The DVI-D (white connector in the back) and the D-SUB (connector on main-board next to the DVI-D) work great for my computer. However, the antenna returns only a white screen no matter what I plug into with it using a coaxial cable. Judging by the modular configuration on the TV (1 main board with LCD monitor attached to it and the 2 computer inputs, and a smalled board on the back with the antenna, component video, S-video, mini-jack out, and composite video.) I think the smaller board which I believe is called a "NR Unit" is what has failed. I took off the back mini-panel of the TV off, which just slides off when you press down 2 tabs. And, I found the small board which is only held down by 5 small screws, and it pops right off. So, if you can find a NR board from westinghouse that works, it's a quick and easy (hopefully inexspensive) replacement. Hope this helped.

White screen on xerox xa7 19i

I had the same problem but fortunately I have two of these monitors so could fiddle with the menus on the working monitor until I could work out how to fix it on the one with the white screen problem. Here's what you do:-

With the monitor on and the white screen showing press MENU, then UP 7 times, then MENU and presto! Your screen will be back to normal.

What this does is change the input from ANALOG to DIGITAL (or vice versa!) either way this worked for me.

Lcd monitor goes white

The E151FPb's seem to have a problem of this sort. After doing some research online I've found that the most common problem is a few dry solder joints on the large circuit board inside the monitor. There was also some talk of a connector suffering from heat creep that sound be connected better on the inside, but usually that would make the screen turn black if it were to become disconnected. The monitor can be opened by unscrewing all the screws on the back, there should be 6 screws you need to pull out before being able to open the case. After those, insert a thin, but strong piece of metal into the side and sort of twist/slide it along the side and it should pop open some clips and just work your way around the perimeter. After that it's just some simple and obvious screws to get to the circuit boards.
