Question about Zenith L13V36 13" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Tv does not turn on

After watching TV on a regular base for about 4-5 days the next day it won?t turn on anymore. This lasts a few days and then it starts working again perfectly. Then after 4-5 days it does it all over again. But not only does the TV not turn on, even when it?s plugged in the red standby light is not on either, so I think it a power source problem or over heating, I?m not really sure I have tried different outlets around the house and still don?t work.

Re: Tv does not turn on

When TV does not start, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that means that the TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

The last several days when I turn on my monitor the image is extremely scrambled for the first few seconds after it powers up. It seems to be taking a bit longer each day for the image to unscramble. Once...

It may have dying power supply due to bad DC filter caps in this 4 years old momitor.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Learn about bad caps:

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

My Gateway LCD Monitor was fine last night this morning to my surprise the screen was full of blue and white horizontal lines. I tried restarting the computer and then I couldn't even get it to turn on....

the montor wont turn on? or the pc?
the lines mean you may need to have the bulb changed. The bulb should last up to four years but sometimes you get a dud. It also depends on whether you bought the TV new or not. If that's the case, you don't know how long that TV ran each day or for how many days it was on display.
