Monitor black screen with blinking amber/green light

My Planar PL1910M monitor will not display an image. The power indicator light on the front panel alternates between amber and green. I understand this is a common problem with this model. Is this just bad capacitors on the power inverter board?

You need to reset the display. The display is in a safe mode. Resetting the display is a simple procedure and Planar has the instructions on their website in their online customer support section.

Most likely this is thie issue.

I can help you repair this problem by providing you with disassembly instructions and troubleshooting to isolate the issue. From there I will tell you how to DIY, or you can mail the faulty board to me for repair. I actually have spare parts for this monitor on hand and will ship it as soon as your old one arrives at my location. Fast turnaround!

I charge a flat rate fee of $40 for my repair service. That includes return postage. You pay for shipping to me.

I will also accept your entire monitor as a trade in towards the purchase of anothor. I have many working LCD's on hand. Prices for Grade A name brand units (Dell. HP, etc) are as follows:

I have a Planar 1910(Black) LCD from a friend. It first had a problem where it would show no display but the power LED would flash green to orange. I fixed the problem by reseting it. Now that the display...


It has white screen becuase it may not be getting the 5vdc from the logic board to the T-CON board or the board has blown fuse.
Please see http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/LCD%20panel/

Also look to see if power supply/logic bd had any bad caps also.

The monitor has no picture at all and the light goes from green to yellow


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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

I assume that it does have the same problem when it is attached to other PC.

Hi,

first of all the problem is not with the monitor...
its probably a corrupted BIOS
(basic i/p o/p systems) its the chip in the motherboard which stores the configuration of your system...

one way to get around this is to,
open the case of your CPU
then on the motherboard there will be a small battery, which is called the CMOS battery ...
take out the battery from its slot...
after a minute put it back in the slot..

now you shold be able to work fine because the BIOS loads with default setting...

if this one works please give a vote
