LiquidVideo L17LCD2 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor - Power Issues

I've owned a LV L17LCD2 17 in. monitor for a few years now. Worked fine until recent months where I've had a few issues. For quite some time the screen would "lock up" occasionally, requiring a reboot of my system. I assumed it was PC related and not the monitor. However, most recently when the PC would go into "powersave" mode -- upon returning to the PC, the monitor would power back on briefly (from amber (rest) to blue light (active); then completely black out (blue light still lit). This would require that I turn the monitor "on and off" slowly but repeatedly until the screen would display properly and work on the PC could be continued. I've done this for several weeks now. I recently changed the "Power Settings" in XP by disabling "power save" and using "screen saver" only. In other words, not allowing the monitor to power off. This remedied the problem briefly.

Yesterday, as I was working on said PC, the monitor display blacked out. It has never done this before, only when PC comes out of power save. I attempted to reset the monitor (power on/off) to no avail. When powered on, the blue power light blinks that coincides with the monitor display "flashing" (from desktop image to black out). Apparently, I have power related issues with the monitor but I'm not terribly sure os specifics.

Perhaps someone with LCD experience has an idea?

I have tried different power cords and connection cables to no avail.

I'd be genuinely grateful for any information you have with respect to my issue.

    My friend gave this monitor. I hooked everything up and turned on the computer. The monitor came on for a few seconds then the screen went blank. So i waited a few minutes, turned off the monitor, then turned it back on. It came on for a few seconds, then went blank again. This kept happening, so I disconnected everything and put my old trust monitor back.

    What I saw of the screen, while it was breifly on, makes me want to fix it. But is it worth it? What's wrong with it? And how much will it cost to fix?

Firstly stop turning it off and on because you will blow something else like a power board then it will be a big paper weight.
next get a torch and when it is powered on and supposed to be showing images, shine the torch at the screen.
if you can see everything then you have a broken backlight or problem with your backlight and connections.
they cost approx £15 and a little labour, its not a big job. you may be able to do it yourself if you can get hold of a service manual.

Most Liquid video tv's and indeed most TV's these days use a RCA power cord. They are available cheaply online and in some dollar stores. You may already have one you can use to test the tv with as desktops use them and some laptops use them as well.

Your computer is set to a resolution too high for the display. You have to reduce the resolution to 1024x768, then plug the monitor back in.

LCD monitor stopped working on my CPU but works on my Brother's


Definitely some electrolytic capacitors are blown inside the monitor in power supply module. Open it and observe any of them rounded on top, replace with proper ones.
You see, controller operations with VGA and DVI inputs takes different current from the supply, that's why it may take different time until PWM chip in the power supply will decide it is time to shut down before getting smoked.
Replace capacitors.

Monitor flicks on but does not stay on


Hello,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Planar PE191M monitor display will not stay on


iv come across this before sometimes people can see that the monitor is actually working but the light has gone out id say bad capacitors that are breaking down. if you want to DIY it take it apart and find the light pcb usually built on the power supply pcb and look for bulging or swolen capacitors this happens alot in my opinion. if you can DIY it get the same caps or same value but better ones. I might be wrong but worth a look

I had this same problem with my ViewSonic LCD monitor. I tried turning the monitor off from the button on the front, and tried changing the settings for the monitor. That didn't help. But then I unplugged it from the power source, and the streaks immediately vanished!
