    I have two LCM-17v8 monitors in my office they they both turn white after being on a while. If I turn them off and back on I have an image for a while (anywhere from 20 seconds to a couple of minutes). The image quality is good but starts to fade then goes completely white.

Found it! Follow this guide:

Essentially, you're going to take apart your monitor (you'll have to pop off the covers where the stand mounts onto the screen in order to do so), then you'll find bulging/popped capacitors on the motherboard inside.

You'll remove those capacitors, then replace them with the appropriate ones linked from that guide. They're incredibly cheap, so I went ahead and bought all of them. We'll see if it actually works for me, but it's supposed to, at least...

I have a BenQ FP791 17 in LCD. I was working until one day I turned it on and it now only displays an all white screen. I plugged it in to another computer, same problem. I can add it as a second monitor to windows but all it displays is white. Windows finds it and the mouse can move over to it but I do not see anything. I am handy with a soldering iron, but not nessisarily diagnosing electronic problems.
Comment posted on Oct 26, 2008I ended up replacing the bulging capacitors on the board inside, and now it works. Thanks for all the comments and help.

I have a 17" LCD Monitor - LCM-17V8. When I turn


Hi, it seems to be an issue with your monitor's backlight not working properly. Just to be sure, try using a different monitor on the same exit of your VGA, if that works, my supposition is confirmed. In case your monitor is still under warranty, just send it to Westinghouse support center, otherwise I'm afraid you will have to buy a new one. Hope it helped, Franz

LCM-17v8 Monitor Blacks out after a few minutes. Unplug power source and you have display again, for how long is anyones guess. Any suggestions


Does this happen ONLY when connected to YOUR computer,
or does this happen when conected to some other notebook/desktop?

If the former, your computer is entering "power-save" mode,
after a few minutes of inactivity. Just "wake-up" your computer,
and it will wake-up the LCD monitor.

If it is the latter, then you have a "hardware" problem with your LCD monitor. Take it to a qualified technician for trouble-shooting.

I have a LCM-17v8 17in Monitor and it seems to be fading and then the screen goes white, any ideas on why?


Hello,

The internal power supply in the monitor is about to die. This is a very common problem with LCD monitors after 2-3 years of use. Check out the pages on monitor repair at our site: www.ccl-la.com We have the parts you need to do the repair and we will have a repair guide posted for your monitor by tomorrow night 01/06/2010. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself, it involves changing about 5 parts and a little soldering. If you don't want to do the repair, we do offer repair services. You can get more details at our web site.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

What causes vertical lines on screen, some lines are thick and some are thin and appear over the task bar, they are across the entire screen.


They are static lines. They can be caused by a variety of reasons, damage to your monitor, damage to your vid card (perhaps it was got a little too hot?), ive seen this issue also with overclocked, try resetting to defaults if so. Also try reinstalling/updating your current display drivers. If you have an integreated video card it could be that your motherboard got hot and perhaps damaged it. If you have a spare vid card or something else you can hook up to try, and it still has the static lines, then it is your monitor for sure.

Audio and picture quit working on white westinghouse lcm-17v8


If you haven't figured it out yet through a web search, Westinghouse monitoris have problems with blown caps on the power supply board. If you are lucky the problem is minimal and won't require more than replacement of the caps. You won't know until/unless you open the case and inspect the power supply board.

Lcm-17v8 monitor


Hi,
This is a problem with the cable that runs from your laptop to the monitor.
Or the VGA Output socket, on your laptop itself.

1:) Try using the monitor, on a different PC Or Laptop.
2:) Toggle The LCD/VGA Button on the laptop. ( This should change the display Mode )
Sometimes you Have A fn key, on the keyboard. Press fn And LCD/VGA.
3:) Check that there is no damage to the cable from laptop to Monitor.
If none of the above work, it,ll be the monitor itself. faulty panel or invertor board.
