Re: Turn Screen on and it displays white

I have a Samsung Syncmaster 175v Mfg Oct '03 displaying the __ White Screen . I removed the screws on the back , removed base stand, separated case with flat screwdriver starting at bottom, unplugged the small wire to the panel menu buttons , removed metal cover from back of LCD. Now you can see the powerboard \ inverterboard combo and the attached video signalboard. Follow the 30 wire plug to the LCD screen, the 30 wire plug goes under a metal panel , remove the 3 small screws securing the panel and you will see the hidden LCD screenboard. Very close to where the 30 wire plug attaches to this screenboard on the Rightside you will see with a magnifying glass a SurfaceMounted Fuse named F1 with a value? of "K". On my LCD the fuse tested with a volt-ohmmeter to be Open or Blown. The right thing to do would be to replace the fuse however I acquired my LCD from a trashcan / dumpster so I stretched a drop of solder connecting both sides of the fuse. Now I do not have the protection from power failures and surges that the fuse could offer but upon reassembly my screen works like new again .
PS : i'm not an expert at anything...x'cept maybe dumpster diving. God Bless

Today I received a faulty Monitor Dell E773c, the problem is that the Monitor get On and the power LED is Green and after remove VGA Cable from CPU it get Orange, But no Display (The Screen is Blank)

To get monitor work for you, you should connect the VGA cable to CPU. When you remove the VGA cable, monitor has got nothing to display so it goes in stand by mode with orange LED on.

I have the VE278Q which is connected by display port, every time i turn off my computer and then turn it back on the monitor can't be found, I have to unplug the display port cable, unplug the monitor,...

when you say monitor can't be found did you mean the monitor has no reactions when you turn on your pc?

here are some test you may need to do to know which part is faulty
1. Turn on your computer, did it display the monitor's logo on screen? When it does monitor is good, when only blank screen it could be the vga cable or the video card.
2. See if the led indication lit. When it lit to steady green, it's good signal is coming in from the video card. It should be followed by screen display. If no display it could be the backlight inverter lamp busted or faulty inverter board. When lit green then turns red, no signal coming from the video card. Check vga cable if fix properly to both monitor and video card. Or may need to reseat properly connection of video card from the motherboard. If no led indication lamp, then monitor is dead. Check ac power cord for continuity using multitester. Check power supply section in the monitor, replaced bulged or blown capacitor with exact value, this components were the first to get affected when lcd monitor failed o turn on.
3. When computer was turned on got display and then monitor turns black, go check the vga cable, Fix the connection properly or may need to replace it with new one.
4. When no signal appears or display blank screen after logo, then check video card. First remedy is to disconnect it the reseat properly to the motherboard. If this have no effect change your video card.

go follow these steps and let me know which is closely to your problem so I can give you a good advise.

Display or power issues with my 17'' LCD screen (SVA LCD #7500L )

Check the high voltage ballast transistor.. see if one of them is burnt... If none.. it could be overheating when supply with current. The ballast transformer supply high voltage for the backlight inverter..If these were overheating then the supply voltage for your monitor will be unstable.

Check also the backlight inverter (cold cathode light) if it is busted.. the function of this backlight inverter is to give display image on the screen.. If these were busted then what you will be seeing is black on your screen. You can also replace this.

Please rate this solution if this help you. thanks..

Screen Goes Blank

Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

you need to have some one open the flat panel up and check the capacitors on the vga/ inverter card and see if they are domed shaped if so then you have blown capacitors and they are not a difficult fix but pricey as the electronics guys don't come cheap

Check signal message when data cable unplugged. blank screen when data cable plugged

This problem is most likely to be caused by a bent or broken pin on the CRT video cable at the VGA connector, OR, this could also be caused by a damaged VGA connector on the back of the laptop. If neither VGA connector is at fault, the problem could be caused a damaged (kinked) CRT data cable, or internal damage to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop, though I suspect the problem is more likely to be external, and you probably won't have to disassemble the laptop to locate the culprit...
