Question about Westinghouse LCM-19v1 Monitor

1 Answer

No power but ON button flashing

Following a power outage, my Westinghouse LCM-17v8 LCD monitor has stopped working. The only sign of life is the power indicator (beside the ON button) now flashes. It was plugged into a surge protector. This has happened before, just during normal usage, not following an outage, and always "fixed itself" within minutes.

Quickest fix for this is probably to temporarily unplug the monitor power cord.

For your other outages, I assume the monitor is connected to a computer, make sure the operating system power-save features have not disabled the video output signal from the computer ... if so, monitor should re-activate when you use the mouse or hit a key on the keyboard.

If your computer has two video outputs, make sure the primary display hasn't been shifted to the other one ... try it by moving the LCD data cable to the other video connector on the computer.

    bad cable or VGA connector?

    take a close look at the pins in the VGA connector, at the end of the cable where the monitor plugs into the computer. One or more of the pins may be bent, or "pushed in" so they don't make good contact. If this is the case, you might be able to fix it by very-very carefully fixing the problem with a pair of fine/small needle-nose pliers.

    Some monitors have detachable VGA cables, so if you can get your hands on another one you could test this proposal.

    Failing this, I have no further suggestions other than your monitor being faulty.

Lcd-17v8 monitor power won't stay on. westinghouse monitor


If the monitor turns on and goes directly to sleep, or it powers on briefly and shows an image then goes black then the monitor is defective. The first is often an I/O panel issue inside of the monitor. The second is typically a lamp failure within the monitor.
A simple test would be to plug a different monitor into your computer or this monitor into another computer. If the monitor doesn't work on another computer or a different monitor works on the same computer then the monitor is the issue.
If the different monitor does not work on the same computer or this monitor does work on a different computer then something on the computer is to be suspected such as a driver issue or a faulty video card.
If you find the monitor is defective then you should dispose of it (assuming it is not under warranty) at a nearby recycling center and purchase a new monitor. I would suggest something by Acer, Samsung, Dell, HP, NEC, or Viewsonic. These brands cost a bit more, but have much better track records.

I have a 17" LCD Monitor - LCM-17V8. When I turn


Hi, it seems to be an issue with your monitor's backlight not working properly. Just to be sure, try using a different monitor on the same exit of your VGA, if that works, my supposition is confirmed. In case your monitor is still under warranty, just send it to Westinghouse support center, otherwise I'm afraid you will have to buy a new one. Hope it helped, Franz

LCM-17v8 Monitor Blacks out after a few minutes. Unplug power source and you have display again, for how long is anyones guess. Any suggestions


Does this happen ONLY when connected to YOUR computer,
or does this happen when conected to some other notebook/desktop?

If the former, your computer is entering "power-save" mode,
after a few minutes of inactivity. Just "wake-up" your computer,
and it will wake-up the LCD monitor.

If it is the latter, then you have a "hardware" problem with your LCD monitor. Take it to a qualified technician for trouble-shooting.

I have a LCM-17v8 17in Monitor and it seems to be fading and then the screen goes white, any ideas on why?


Hello,

The internal power supply in the monitor is about to die. This is a very common problem with LCD monitors after 2-3 years of use. Check out the pages on monitor repair at our site: www.ccl-la.com We have the parts you need to do the repair and we will have a repair guide posted for your monitor by tomorrow night 01/06/2010. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself, it involves changing about 5 parts and a little soldering. If you don't want to do the repair, we do offer repair services. You can get more details at our web site.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Westinghouse monitor lcm 17v8 will not power on it just sits there and blinks


mufdvr6942, the "switch-mode-power-supply" is in shutdown. Have a technician evaluate (inspect) it. Do that if monitor is less than 4yrs old.
Also visit youtube and search and view longer (8-12min) vid clips of LCD monitor disassembly or LCD repair FYI 12fixlouie

I have a BenQ FP791 17 in LCD. I was working until one day I turned it on and it now only displays an all white screen. I plugged it in to another computer, same problem. I can add it as a second monitor to windows but all it displays is white. Windows finds it and the mouse can move over to it but I do not see anything. I am handy with a soldering iron, but not nessisarily diagnosing electronic problems.
Comment posted on Oct 26, 2008I ended up replacing the bulging capacitors on the board inside, and now it works. Thanks for all the comments and help.

Audio and picture quit working on white westinghouse lcm-17v8


If you haven't figured it out yet through a web search, Westinghouse monitoris have problems with blown caps on the power supply board. If you are lucky the problem is minimal and won't require more than replacement of the caps. You won't know until/unless you open the case and inspect the power supply board.
