Question about LG L204WT LCD Monitor

Open Question

Power Won't Consistently Turn On

My Flatron model L204WT is about two years old. After disconnecting and reconnecting the power cord one day, the unit did not turn on. If I leave it one, it will after a long period of time turn back on (sometimes). Right now, it has been off and won't turn on. Any suggestions? Joe im having the same exact problem, my L204WT-SF will not power on, from powersaving mode... 
this has been happening for a few days now, i used to be able to switch the graphics modes for my dualscreen setup, to clone, horizontal span, etc... and the screen would come back on... but yesterday it didn't... i had to unplug the power cord, and plug it back in... and now that won't work even... mine is also about two years old....
this sounds to me like engineered obsolecence! designed to need replacing!

SOURCE: I have a L194WT LG Flatron monitor. One day it

Same problem started happening two days ago and ever since. I called LG and the product falls under a 3yr product warranty according to them (from my original purchase date of January 20, 2007). They will send packing slips to me so I can send the defective unit back to LG. I was told I am eligible for a replacement monitor - which will be shipped to me within 10 to 14 days (consecutive days, not business) - although I'm not sure what I'm being sent in return. My suspicion is that this monitor issue is a known issue by LG and they are quietly replacing the unit to those who follow through by calling CS.

Tips: Have your original purchase date on hand (in the form of a receipt) just in case they want proof of purchase.

What is the model number of your DVD player? You may try power resetting the unit and check if it helps. To power reset, turn OFF the DVD player and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the player ON. Attempt to open the disc tray.

Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.
NOTE: This step may not apply to all models as DISC1 is not available on all DVD players.

If this does not work and if the DVD player has DISPLAY and PREV buttons, press and hold the DISPLAY+PREV buttons for two seconds to unlock the drawer.

This issue may occur if the disc is damaged or if the disc was not inserted properly into the Blu-ray Disc® player. Follow the steps below to open the disc tray and eject the disc.
  1. Turn off the Blu-ray Disc player.
  2. Disconnect the power cord (mains lead) or AC adapter.
  3. Allow the disc player to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  4. While pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button located on the front of the disc player, reconnect the power cord.
    IMPORTANT: For some Blu-ray Disc Home Theater models it is necessary to press and hold the OPEN/CLOSE andPLAY buttons simultaneously, then reconnect the power cord.
    NOTE: This step may require the assistance of a second person.
  5. After reconnecting the power cord, when the tray opens, release the OPEN/CLOSE button.
  6. Remove the disc.
  7. If necessary, disconnect and then reconnect the power cord to recover the player.

How do i check to see what is causing my receiver to shut off

The amp protection circuit has been activated. Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately. Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources, and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected for 1 hour. After that, reconnect the power cord and reconnect an input and a pair of speaker wires onto the unit. If the receiver still does not turn on than you will have to bring it in for service. Turn up the volume and if the receiver doesn't shut down, power off the receiver and add another pair of speakers. Power up the unit again and turn up the volume. If it doesn't shut down, power off the unit again. Now connect all your input sources and turn on your receiver. If the unit shuts down again, your unit will need to be further serviced at an authorized Onkyo service center.

I want to transplant emac power supply

Hi Paul, OPen an eMac is staighytforward but a little risky becasue onece the case is open you are exposed to the EHT circuity and the nasty capacitors.
Sit the unit on its screen then undo the large silver allan screws on the outisde of the unit and the screws on the base. Lift off the back of the unit carefully and watch that you dont break the cire connecting the on-off switch. It usually has enough slack so that you can disconnect it safely.Once the back is off you can see what you have to do. - it's not easy though as I remember, the way the thing has been put together is not exactly obvious.

    Washer won't turn on at times. It acts like it has no power. Unplugging electric cord from wall socket and reconnecting seems to reset the unit and it functions normally for a while. After an hour or...

    Try this first, unplug the unit and connect it to a different outlet and see if it corrects the problem. If it still continues, you will need to replace the control board. Good luck.

    My lcd daed

    If the repair is not serious, your LCD may be able to be repaired. Sometimes replacement parts and labor for broken LCDs are often more expensive than the cost of a new monitor. If you really want to repair it, replacement screens, power supplies and control boards can be ordered direct from the manufacturer. Here is the LG Support Site:

    Check this first:
    • Remove the power cord from the wall outlet, and the LCD unit, and reconnect the power cord. Try powering on the unit.
    • Disconnect and reconnect monitor video cable.

    Power problem with LG L204WT Flatron

    unique_m_m, Your LG l204WT has a possible bad "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter circuit" that will need to be repaired. The sound that you hear can only come from the circuits mentioned. The SMPS supplies dc voltage to the INVERTER supply and it changes it to a high voltage ac to light-up the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" (2) that are hung on the reverse side of the lcd panel you look at. You will need a tech type to investigate the units SMPS/inverter board for bad (swollen,leaky) electrolytic filter capacitors and "cold, frosty looking solder joints of the surface and through hole mounted electronic parts soldered to the circuit board. Here is cost to repair. DIY if handy with soldering pencil would be less than $20. Farm out the repair $35 to $65
    More if new replacement board is required. I would certainly get on PHILLIPS case and yell and scream about their product's poor quality and short lifespan. Let us know if they give you the "bird"and a "you bought it you own it toyota" attitude. A service life of only two years is totally unacceptable! You could ask phillips if they have a refurbished unit swapout program?? Let us know what happens by doing additional comments to original posting. Bye for now. 12fixlouie
