    I have the same Monitor and it does not power up at all. Should I try replacing the power supply?

  • Cedric Hamilton May 11, 2010

    In response to Solution 1. I replaced the capacitors on the Power supply. I actually replaced four of them with a slightly bigger capacitor and it still did the same thing. I believe one of the transformers or Transistors or something else is also messed up. I think it would be worth replacing the board.

Actually that model has an integrated inverter with the power supply. Should be part # xlm1700390004 they cost around 25 bux and are fairly easy to replace.

If you are handy with soldering you could check the three 470 uf caps on the board they are tank caps and when they go they do what you are describing. Open the monitor and look at the three black capacitors if the top is bulged they are bad. If you have a capacitance meter check the capacitance it will most likly be well below 470 uf the caps are cheap like 39 cents if you do go this route use 30v not 25v caps to be on the safe side.

Word of warning switching power supplies can kill you quickly never work on it live and let it discharge at least an hour before working on it.

The picture wont stay on the screen, sound will work, but i cant see it (the picture), if i turn it off for a few minutes and then turn it back on it works for a little while, but eventually it will go...


This is a backlight issue. LCD televisions require a light to be on permanently behind the visible LCD. This is usually provided by tubes called CCFL or cold cathode flourescent lamp. There will be multiple lamps arranged around the edges of the screen. It sounds most likely to be a due to one or more bad capacitors, which can be easily replaced by anyone experienced with electronics.

It could be a faulty inverter transformer but this usually causes the backlight to switch off within seconds of switching on due to protection circuitry in the inverter controller circuit. If the inverter circuit is faulty then the inverter board can be replaced.

If you are not competent with electronics then take your TV to be repaired by a qualified Tv repair engineer.

How to open (remove back) Omnitech Vw19B LCD Monitor


You are right about the problem on the flourescent, but the issue is caused by the mosfet transistors. You need to use a flat screwdriver to pry the back of the display until you get this open. Start from the bottom side because some damage will be left on the plastic.
