Can my monitor be fixed or does it need to be replaced?

A few days ago I notice that when my monitor first starts up the screen goes white, the power button flickers slightly, but once the monitors fully turns on and shows the desktop it is fine. There is no discoloration on the screen, no weird lines, no real lag and the screen doesn't seem darker than usual. But now when it starts up its seems to be having trouble turning on and I have to turn the monitor itself off then on again to show the screen. But otherwise it looks just fine and works fine. Can this possibly be fixed or do I really have to replace it?

It sounds like the power supply board on your monitor is failing. If it's still under warranty you might be able to get a replacement from the manufacturer - if not, you might be able to have it repaired at a computer or TV repair shop.

SOURCE: RE:monitor goes black

Monitor going black after a few seconds can be causd by a faulty power supply or inverter. Some monitors have both as one unit.
Sometimes it is basic failed capacitors, After that then I would look at transistors.
The average monitor from 17 to 20 and sometimes the 22s have usually 4 bulbs in them. One bad bulb will also cause the inverter to not fire up.
Bad bulbs usually show pinkish tint, or flickering or are dark at center top or bottom of the display.

At first you should clarify if your GPU or LCD is broken.
Do You have any chance to try another monitor with your Graphicadapter or to try your monitor on a different PC?
Moreover you should try it with a new cable.

The symptom of weird symbols sounds most likely like a overheated or wrong-plugged Graphicadapter

Try a different monitor or this monitor on a different computer. If it makes same noise on different machine or new monitor makes no noise on your machine you need a new one.

The backlight or inverter is going out on your screen.
Eventually it will just stay dark. You will need to replace one of the two if plan on keeping monitor.

If you find this helpful please rate so.

Thanks

How do I Fix LCD White Screen?


If you see "fractured lines" across the screen, it would appear that your LCD screen is broken. That's the only way these kinds of lines appear.
You need to replace the screen.

LG L222WS half bottom screen white


There is a problem with the capacitors in your monitor. This is a normal problem these days with flat screen monitors, I am trying to find out why it is always like tha. This will normally be caused by improper shut down or power fluctuations in your monitor. Capacitrs in your monitor are responsible for holding down the power from the supply, fr the proper display on your monitor. If a capacitor is damaged, or buldged, it no longer holds power long enough for your display, and that is why your screen goes black after a few seconds. This can be solved by opening up your monitor, using a sharp and flat object, opening it starting from the bottom working your way up until the cover is completely out. You will notice finger-like clips that are holding the two covers together. Once you are done, check on the circut board where you connect the power cable.... that is where you are going to find the damaged capacitor(s). You can identify them by noting their bulged head or if there is any liquid coming out of it. Before you replace the, take note of the polarity (+) and (-) so that whenever you replace with the new one it is in the same direction. This will fix up your problem. Note: make sure you let a Computer Technician to do this for you, unless you can do it yourself without damaging the monitor. Thank you

Hans-G Monitor monitor clicks will not power up


Sounds like capicitor could be faulty, shouldn't be that difficult or expensive to replace. What will cost you more is the labour so depends how expensive they are on that, if it's not too much then yeah it's worth fixing just ask for a quote first.

I have a HPw1907 monitor and it will turn on for about 2 seconds, and it turns off. The CPU is fine, just a problem with the monitor. Any way to fix this?


We have the same model of monitor and had the same problem few days ago. The monitor just goes black/turns off. I noticed that the power button has a yellow blinking light and cannot be turn on/off again using the power button. The CPU is working fine also. When I turn off the avr, the power button's light turns blue for a few second and you can hear a click sound from the back of the lcd before it totally turns off. My lcd monitor is over a year old now and is 110v or 220v capable. Mine was originally in a 220v, i just put it in 110v and the monitor was fixed.. Hope this can somehow fix your problem.

LG L1715S TFT power issue


Change out C202- 680 uF 25 Volt electrolytic capacitor. Replace with 25 volt or higher. Observe proper polarity when replacing cap: (-) goes to the side with the black mark, check old cap before removing it to see. I just fixed the same monitor today.

Proview PL926Wbi LCD Monitor White Screen


I found in the refuse, a Gateway FPD 1520, 15" LCD monitor that started off losing the screen half-way, losing sync, etc. The "mechanical agitation" method was applied and remedied the problem. Awhile ago, it went to a white screen (or, as it was back in the day- a clean raster). I opened it up and found that the ribbon cable on the left was loose. I applied a series of layers of adhesive-backed foam (the kind you stop drafts in your home with) until it was greater than the height of the metal enclosure to put pressure on the unbehaving connector. It does seem a bit loose and this will keep it snug. Maybe hot glue or other adhesive if it wiggles loose again. Seems to have solved the problem at the moment.
