SOURCE: monitor flashing

I have a similar problem with my screen, same one, 15". For a period of two years it would turn black for an instant and resume functioning. Since two weeks it only flashes the picture for an instant and then turns black again. We opened it up to check the wiring but nothing wrong there. We are 99.99% sure that the problem is in the screen itself and has nothing to do with drivers or anything else in the computer.
If you bought it less than 3 years ago and since it is probably a result of faulty construction, it should fall under warranty (by european law).
I am going to take mine to a repairman tomorrow, i will inform you wether the screen can be repaired or not.

Greetings,
Rengenier.

I called LG customer service today when my monitor went out (see previous posting) and they mentioned that it looks like it is a backlight issue. There is usually one of three things wrong when the backlight starts to go out - total blackness after coming on for a second, the power supply to the light is going out, or there are lines on the display in several areas.

Anyway, after talking to LG they are sending me some return labels and I will ship them this monitor and they are going to replace it. The monitors have a 3 yr warranty and this model is only a couple of years old. So call customer service and have them send you a new one. We'll see how it goes from here.

SOURCE: LG flatron L1970 h monitor flickers.

Just fixed mine :)

Biggest mistake was to try to open the monitor itself :( But I didn't brake anything :D

You just have to gently open the transformer unit (power brick) and replace two identical 1000uF 16V capacitors.
Here's how:
Remove the power cord first, to discharge the capacitors to avoid any nasty shocks when inside. Remove two rubber feet on the bottom side of the power brick. Just use your nail and lift them. Put them safely for later assembling. Unscrew two screws you just found under the removed feet. Now you have to unlock the other side held together by plastic locks. Try to apply pushing force and toque with screwdriver just where the seam is meeting the power cord socket's edge. Look for two identical capacitors and check if the tops are bulged of broken. I assume they are but you can try this method anyway. When the unit is disassembled you'll have to unsolder at least one of the wires that hold shielding plate on the bottom of the circuit board. Then unsolder the two capacitors (1000uF 16V). Replace them with the same type (1000uF) and the closest voltage possible. I have replaced mine with 1000uF 24V ones and so far I'm typing :D
That's it. If you have done this and looked for other damaged capacitors and replaced them also... Well then good luck disassembling the monitor unit and checking on inverter and lamps ;)

Cheers!

Either the power supply or the backlight is going bad. Replacing either will be expensive ... might be better off replacing the monitor.

I have a LG flatron W2243S and after 14h of use a blue line appeared across the screen what to do now?


The line appeared because the commands to the pixels in that line got damaged. The only thing you can do is to take it apart and reseat the connectors to the lcd panel. If it's the same then the fault is in the panel itself and this is unfixable. Either use it as is or junk it.

LG FLATRON E700SH problem wid it is that .its led is flickering dimmly but screen is black out ..? buta sometime after 20m 45 minutes the monitors starts working .but some time it doesnt.??????????


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor is malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on, but the screen is black out, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

When i turn my computer on the monitor flickers for a second then just goes black. at the start i can see the desktop but after that it goes black lg flatron l1718s


You may have problem in the power supply, common causes are the bad capacitors (bulging top/seal, or leaking). That will be the first place to check. I will assume that you have already try it with another PC and it still does not work. See pictures here for a guide so you know what to look for inside:

This is more likely an issue with you video card than your monitor, do all the monitors you have tested operate at the same resolution and refresh rate? It sounds like the LG monitor is running at a higher resolution and refresh rate which is causing addition load to be placed on your video card causing it to crash
