There is definately a shorted component that causes the fuse to blow. Nomaly the ceremic capacitors are the cause of the problem. Check to see if there is visiual dark or burnt ceremic caps with label sameting like this "SCK 083" near the fuse area and change it. Hope it helps,cheers.

Power supply board is not working. There is usually a fuse on the board that you can change, but you need to know what caused the fuse to blow in the first place. There are many places online that sell replacement boards. It's not difficult to open the back of the TV to get at the boards.

Hp monitor wont turn on.


Hello,

First, remove the power cord from the wall, insert it into another outlet. Also, change the power cord, in case it is bad. Sometimes a bad power cord may not pass current into the monitor. But if problem persist, then it means the monitor is having a power problem.

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The monitor is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the monitor because of the defective power supply board. You might be lucky it's just a blow fuse. Also a defective transformer can cause your monitor not to power on.

All these can be checked on the power supply board.

But more often bad capacitors causes problem on the power supply board. I do not think the power board needs replacement, rather those defective capacitors is causing this issue. Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can by a refurbished complete power board to save you some stress.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about monitor repairers, take the monitor to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that monitor stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the monitor back cover.

I hope this helps.

Regards.

Blown fuse on a ilpi-009 power supply


hi, i don't know the exact power board you speak of, most fuses for power supply protect ac inboard power, and backlights. if backlight inverters touch ground or ground out, this will blow fuse. otherwise, the fused circuit is used for main inboard power going to primary capacitor. take an automotive fuse holder and solder test leads long enough to work with, install 4 amp blade fuse and jumper/solder the circuit to the fuse on the board and power on the monitor. if all goes well, probably just power surge or outlet grounded. if blows fuse, check to board for obvious burns or blown capacitors. if not there, unplug backlights and power on, if still blows, check to make sure no direct conact with board and back of screen. just be thorough about looking carefully for shorts if there is one. and don't forget to replace the factory fuse on the board with the correct one after you finish repairing, don't leave that automotive fuse in. good luck.

Hi I have an Acer AL1916 that is not powering up, there is no light on the switch, is there anything I can do, like fuses to check etc? Regards Alan


Sorry no fuses that can be changed. Often it is just the power supply going on the fritz, take it in for repair, due to the cost of monitors repairs are usually very reasonable, as long as you find, a place that specializes in Monitor repair, it will be OK. Anyway you can always ask for a "Quote" and decide as to repair or replace,

Keep blow fuse on power supply board, viewsonic vx910


Replacing the fuse twice is OK but going beyond that doesn't make sense.
I don't know where the fuse is located in the circuit, AC input or some output point.
If it is the main AC fuse, the main power supply is probably faulty and one needs some experience to locate the shorted component.
If it is on the output side you have a shorted part and the above admonition applies; you need some training to know what you are looking for.
If the supply is on a separate board as is common, look for a part (assembly) number and do a search to see if there are companies offering repairs on that supply; if not, you may get stuck buying a new one and there is no guarantee that the supply didn't fail for a reason. You could have a 'downstream' problem that killed the supply.

En7410 won't turn on


DONT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY THE PCB(POWER CONTROL BOARD IS BAD YOU WILL BE BETTER OFF BUYING A NEW MONITOR)

IF you do find the power control board replacement and get it to work i think you would have better results spending the same amount of money on a new monitor with all new parts plus warranty

Had a power outage, acer monitor will not power up


Normally there is a fuse that can be replaced inside on the power supply board. The are usually "slow blow" fuses and need to be replaced by an equivalent fuse. Many monitors have a soft switch which is controlled by the main board that tells the relays to supply power from the power supply. The CMOS devices on these boards are very suceptible to static so ground your hand to the chassis before touching any boards. If the backlight is out but there is a faint image on the screen when you look at it closely then the inverter board or CFT tubes are suspect. BTW: watch the Power supply and inverter boards as the caps stay charged and could result in electrical shock. Good luck. Hope this helps.
