Question about Planar PX2710MW Monitor
Posted by Anonymous on
The Planar PX2210MW is notorious for bad electrolytic capacitors. Specifically capacitor C804 on the power supply board. . This is a 1000uF 25volt capacitor. That capacitor was usually made by Hermei and it was purple. Normally, the top of a capacitor will be flat. When it fails, it will be curved upward and there may be some brown material leaking out.
If the monitor still will not work after replacing C804, the problem could be Q805 or Q806. These are located on the under side of the board. They are small black surface mounted chips. There are 8 pins on these chips. I have seen both AO4620 and APM4548A part numbers used. These chips contain a pair of MOSFET transistors. One transistor is n-channel and the other is p-channel. Look for a short in one of the transistors. I have repaired several of these monitors. C804 is always bad. How ever, in three cases, Q805 or Q806 was also bad

Okay.... If you can. install your drive. It may work. If not then your Hardware in your monitor is screwed. Or maybe something else but not to my knowledge.

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

Your monitor has 3 years warranty, I would find out if you can get the replacement before opening up the case.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
