Question about CTX F973 19 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Monitor wont power-up

Stage-1 Recently my CTX P972L monitor showed tearing (interference type)lines on pressing the Power button but soon cleared and full video was present and stable. Stage-2 The problem got worse in that when the tearing lines dissapeared I would have no video signal and the power button became inoperative (LED on all the time). To resolve this I had to remove the power plug then replace it. The power button would then work fine and no tearing (until next time on power-up). Stage-3 Now the monitor wont power-up at all (no LED lights on the power button) however, on removing the power plug the blue LED lights momentarily. Similarly the blue LED lights up momentarily when inserting the power plug. But the power-on button no longer lights up when pressed and the monitor remains dead. Help ! Please can anyone suggest a possible componant/s that could be the culprit (a specific Capacitor maybe ?). I am reasonably familiar with PCBs and their componants but very rusty on fault finding especially without a circuit diagram. So techspeak wont frighten me and your expertise would be greatly appreciated to point me in the right direction and help me find this fault. Best regards, Bob

Re: Monitor wont power-up

It is usually the Large Value Caps around any heatsinks etc. in the Power Supply.. I usually simply replace ALL Large Value Electrolytic Capacitors, with same or better temperature ratings. This often fixes any problems.

Monitor will not turn on. I have pressed the power button still no power


This should be pretty straight forward to trouble shoot.

1) make sure the outlet you are using does indeed have power
2) try another power cable

If you are not getting any power at all (no lights or anything) when you try to turn this on, the monitor has most likely failed and needs to be serviced.

Normally the OSD lock will only be displayed for 5 seconds.
Regardless you should be able to get rid of it by pressing holding the up arrow key for 10 seconds.
If this fails to resolve the issue try this. Disconnect power cord. Now press and hold button 1. Plug the power cord back in. You may have to press the power button while still holding button 1. The OSD lock should clear after that.
Hope this helps.
