Question about KDS 17S 17" Monitor

Black screen blinking green light

Lately its been taking longer and longer to come on now it wont come on at all but the light is blinking green and i still have sound coming through. I also have my my tv hooked up to my video card and its still working. I never had any problems in the last 4 years that ive had my flat screen until recently when I installed my n-vida 3d video card about 6 weeks ago, and about 3 weeks after that I noticed the screen not coming on right away and as time went by it was taking longer and longer to come until now it wont come on at all.

    so is the backlight fluorescent bulb something that can be replaced? My monitor is about 4-5 years old....maybe time to get a new one? The monitor would take 20 minutes to come one, now in the last 2 days it takes 45 minutes. I have a KDS RAD-5C, sticker on back says mfg in 2002.....

    There seems to be some question about the quality of the capacitors used on the main power board. Check the tops for swelling or leakage. They might be the real problem.

    I think a more elementary problem you'll find will be detting the unit apart. The front bezel seels to be attached with interior clips that aren't accessible, or easily manipulated, from outside the case.

    Any help with that?

Screen is black


This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's the problem. You can confirm that it's the monitor and not your computer or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try. If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old your monitor is and how much you've invested into it, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

Monitor signal cable troubleshooting


hi, there is some loose contact in the connection. Take out the cable end from the VGA socket and check the pins inside the socket for any bend inside the socket. Reconnect it, tight the connector with the socket bolts. If not solved, try for any loose solder or wire breake.
Thank you

Monitor went black


Same with mine a couple days ago. I've been told the contacts have oxidized and need to be cleaned. It was going to cost about $80 to fix and no guarantee how long it would last so I just bought a new monitor.
