Re: fujitsu/siemens scenicview e-19-1 model 900p

Please excuse me posting this as a 'solution', which I rather think demands one knows what was wrong in the first place! Anyhow, I have fixed my problem with this monitor. As previously mentioned cutting JP13 didn't restore the blank display. BTW: JP13 is on the component side of the first power supply printed circuit board (PCB), its under the steel plate in the back of the monitor case, remove both plate and board mounting screws to get at it. But responding to someones previous suggestion, I went about replacing all electrolytic capacitors (caps) on this board, did this rather than just replace C10/C11 as its a bit of a fiddle to open/reclose the monitor case and I'd already done it twice by this stage and wanted to limit possible damage to cables/connectors etc by repeated dismantling of case. ANYHOW! result is that monitor is fixed (so far!), had it on soak for a week and am using it right now, so hopefully it will stay that way. Its fairly easy job to do if you have some PCB soldering experience, you'll need a small iron and a 'solder remover/******' (when removing old caps). Recommend you look at for info on the capacitor values you'll need. I used recommended good quality capacitors - Nichicon and Panasonic. If anyone is interested I'll post the list of values I used but its pretty easy to extract the old caps and get the values from them. Hope this is of help, regards Phil

This is most probably cause by one or more Faulty Electrolytic Capacitors, I find these are the MOST commonest form of "Fault" in these LCD's TFT's units. I ususally simply replace "On Spec" all High Value Electros, In the Power Supply Section, in fact ALL Electro's are suspect and often I often simply just "Shotgun it" and replace 'em all. Usually fixes all problems. Always use High Temperature Caps. The "Faulty" ones are usually misformed, domed, or split.. but sometimes there is NO external evidence.

Cut J13 as suggested in the first reply, and "touch wood" monitor seems to be working again!!!

Don't know of any long term effects cuting J13 will have on the monitor, but as it cost me nothing and it wasn't working before the "fix" . I have lost nothing other than the time it took me to open the case and cut J13 and put it back together again.....

Many thanks to Drew!

Re: fujitsu/siemens scenicview e-19-1 model 900p

I've read thru a lot of info. The fact that the monitor usually works if one side of the lamps (i.e. inverters) is deconnected, points to the inverter circuit replace c10 and c11. It cured it for me.

I did replace some bulbous caps in the PS part too, but that didn't work.

read the suggestions in "badcaps forum"

success :-)

If you are still watching. As far as I can determine (no circuit diagram) the problem is rotten design. Suspect a generic fault. Don?t think there is component failure, just spec drift. Seems like imbalance in the tubes is detected and kills the backlight. Dumb. It could be the sense transformers for that function gone weird, but disabling the circuit cures. Serious imbalance can also kill the backlight via the main current monitoring circuit but it would have to be way off. Simply clip JP13 on the underside of the top board and you will probably have a working display. Worked for me. BTW, to detach the front bezel, remove the four screws at the bottom and thump the bezel upwards. Best Drew

Re: fujitsu/siemens scenicview e-19-1 model 900p

I pulled an identical monitor out of a skip last week, unless by some amazing coincidence it is the same one. So identical in fact that it has an identical fault. Problem is not (in this instance) with the capacitors. I think I know which component it is, just trying to determine what it is at the moment as the smd number doesn?t come up on any lists. Will probably have to trace and draw a part of the circuit before I can work out if it is a FET, bipolar etc. Just a problem with the backlight BTW. Standard TL494 pwm but the error circuitry is a bit odd. So don?t throw it out yet and I?ll be back soon hopefully. Best Drew

My Fujitsu goes on normally, but often the screen turns black. I've turned it off and of and that does not help. Then, sometimes it comes on normally. The computer is less than 2 years old.

There are 2 possible reasons which are both easy to fix, the screen ribbon cable is stretched or torn or the screen inverter has had its day just do a quick goole search on these 2 things and source the parts of ebay for under ten pounds

Fujitsu siemens scenicview p17-2 monitor flicker. Some time ago flickered about 20 min. after power on, but now always. Two monitors and the same bug.

IF you do not think it is the monitor, replace (if possible) the cable from the computer to the monitor. Sometimes the cable can be loose. Then, check the connection at the video card. The video card may be loose or may need to be replaced. Also, before you decide none of the above is what you want to do, verify that the refresh rate in the computer display control panel is set to the speed the monitor can accept. (right click on the desktop and pick properties then screen resolution/video/monitor options). Screen refresh should be 60hz +/- as a basis and adjust from there.
I really suspect the cable.

Are you connecting the speakers to the green port on the sound card. If so, check in "Control Panel" that the P.C can see the sound card and that it is the "Preferred" play back device.
