Sounds like the LCD monitor is not getting a proper input signal. Check your cables between the computer and monitor. Replace them if need. Also check the pins and make sure that none are bent or disfigured.

Try a replacment monitor from a family member or friend. If their monitor works ok.....then your due for a replacment. The are very little user servicable parts inside.

Sounds to me your high voltage powersupply is out. To repair open monitor and remove high voltage powersupply. Inspect the caps on the board. Look for the ends of the caps to be mushroomed out. Replace these caps, usally 470 uf caps. Replace with 25volt caps. Might also be some 100uf caps as well. This is a common problem with all LCD monitors.

I have an image with the flashlight, but no backlighting on my IBM 6734 lcd monitor


The inverter module is bad or the back light behind the LCD screen has stopped working, I would suggest an estimate if you decide to have it repaired.

17 lcd l170 black screen power on but no display


When powered-on, and *NOT* connected to a computer, most ThinkVision LCD monitors will flash, for a few seconds, the IBM ThinkVision "logo", before going into "power-saving" mode. If you don't see that, then it's time to spend about $120, and buy a new 19" (not 17") LCD monitor.

Adam,

Well, to look for a bad capacitors you need to tested with a ESR meter. But if you are lucky sometime you can spotted just by look at the top of a caps for stress mark (like it going to burst out). The caps look like a tiny battery, other look like a blue button with 2 pins. Sometime it not the caps problems...it's beyond repaired. Anyways, good lucks!

Ibm 15" thinkvision lcd monitor


The entire Thinkvision series of monitors have been plagued by capacitors on the power supply board failing.
This sounds worse then it is. For the most part they only fail well after their warranty period, so it's not a design flaw, just old age.

The repair should not cost alot and would be worth a trip to your local computer/TV repair man.

Hope that helps =)
