My acer monitor just keeps turning on and off it was working fine then it just started turning on and off

Hello, Thanks for using

What you got here is a power supply issue. The power supply might be having some issues with its filler capacitors inside the power supply itself.

Many people such as myself have replaced these types of things to make it work.

You would need to know basic soldering and electronics repair skills to do this type of duty.

If that is not the type of work your into I recommend having the monitor repaired by a expert in your city.

1. Bad/bulging electrolytic filler capacitors

Thanks for your question, I do hope your satisfied with my answer,

Best regards

Help my hp 2009m monitor has a cracked LCD and I can't see nothing. Does anyone know how to open up the monitor so I can replace it Thanks very much

A professional TV/video repair-person knows how to open it, how to order the correct replacement part, and how to reassemble and test it. This is not a "do-it-self" repair, like changing batteries in a flash-light.


for parts information.

Where is the backlight located in my viewsonic va1703wb?

The backlight is located inside the monitor behind the LCD screen, it looks like a thin florescent bulb. I would recommend not replacing it and just replacing the monitor. The bulb is cheap probably between 10 to 30 dollars, but you also may need the EMI kit, and with your labor involved you may not be saving any money. Also if you don't get the correct bulb you may have a green or hue effect.

Bought 2 monitors at the same time, one just simply wont turn on anymore, where should i take it to be repaired/looked at? Maybe the main bulb burnt out?

> where should I take it

Back to where you bought it, to get their recommendation for a TV/video repair shop in your area.

Or, if it still has a valid WARRANTY, then EXERCISE the warranty, to get it repaired/replaced.

I have a Samsung 19" model 923NW monitor. This is my 2nd of this model that has gone bad on me. I decided to pull the second one appart and noticed that the back light lamps are burned. One side is burned...

I would recommend replacing the monitor if the back lights are going bad. Chances are that it's not the back light that is the problem. It's like replacing a light bulb on a bad circuit. If you replace the bulb it will work for a while, but it will probably go bad again. I would simply invest in a Viewsonic monitor. You will get a better quality product as well as a better warranty.

Hp m705 display-menu flickering..

Don't worry, and not be taken aback by a virus. It is a problem which I am myself facing, it is a problem seen in rainy season in which the curcuits of the monitor get rust and pads get pressed. Replace it by new components. Heating the monitor ( by bulb being hanged aside ) may solve the problem.

Viewsonic monitor goes blank but you can still here game playing.

I fix a lot of viewsonics and there is no diagrams available to the public as far as I know.
It could be your power board or inverter just needs rebuilding.
It may be a bulb, but usually the boards fail first

Monitor stays dim

Chances are it's not the actual CFL back-light bulbs themselves, but the back-light inverter board. If it was the bulbs you would have not had the "warm up and it get bright" issue. The board IS replaceable, (as well as the bulbs) ViewSonic charges about $36.00 USD for the board when they have them in stock. (out of stock as of yesterday 11/14/2006) It should be covered under warranty if you got longer than one year. (I know the warranty was only one year on MY VA800 but I have seen longer offered since i got mine) Good Luck I hope this helps! El Duderino
