Question about Zenith L13V36 13" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Zenith L13V36 When I turn-on the power button to my 13" television, the screen goes on for about 1/2 second with no sound or picture (it's just black, but you can see the channel number in the upper right hand corner), then it automatically shuts off. What to do? Thanks so much for any assistance.

That sounds like a bad power adapter, a bad inverter , or a bad controller board.

When TV does not start, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that means that the TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Hello,

I believe the power led button is still on while the screen goes black, if yes, it means the picture board of your monitor is bad that is why it appears for a second and goes black after that

Since the power led button is on, It means the picture board on your monitor is faulty that is why it appears for a second and goes black.

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

Take care.

I get sound, can change the channels, etc, but my Polaroid television screen has no picture whatsoever; it's just a black screen.


lubbarlubab, Looks like you will need to get a power supply repaired/replaced in your unit. Before you call out the service guy, you should spend 30-40minutes at YOUTUBE and view some "LCD-TV repair" videos and also videos of "LCD monitor repair" and LEARN what are the most common components that are causing this plague of "BLACK SCREEN of DEATH" to disrupt your life. If the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" fail to light-up due to a failure of a single or multiple $2 parts on a power supply board you have a black screen!! This problem is also very common to LCD computer monitors. Try to view a vid by someone called "cal22583" who did his own repair to a Philips 42" or 50" unit. If this was of some help please rate on fixya.
Bye for now. 12fixlouie

Laptop screen notworking


My laptop screen goes blank from time to time and these are the reasons it happens. If you boot the computer with the screen open while on battery sometimes the screen doesn't connect properly, but closing and re-opening the screen fixes this. Also, if your computer has a video out connection such as HDMI or S-Video look at the F5 key and see if it looks like it might mention switching screens at all. If it looks like it does, hold the fuction (FN) key and press F5, give it 10 or so seconds, if that doesn't work, try it again a few times, waiting each time. If none of this gets your screen back, it is a hardware issue not a settings or user issue.

The key lock is a function that can only be reset with a remote. Go to www.zenith.com and under "support" you'll find product manuals. You can enter your model number and get the manual, but once "key lock" is on, you'll need a remote to change it.

L13V36 Dark Screen, picture can be seen in bright light.


If the backlight lights up for a second it's probably fine - It lay odds on the display inverter in the screen. Actually finding parts for anything made by gateway may be difficult, however. They do not sell spare parts. Considering the size of the LCD i bet it would almost exceed the replacement cost of the screen to repair it

welcome to fixya

it sounds like the back light on both monitors are going bad
it might be better to call a repair man and get him to look at it see if it is going to be worth fixing i think it might be better then buying a new one at the prices now days

i hope this helps out have a nice day:)
