1 Answer

Power Monitor is only a year old and the power just suddenly went out. I tried it on another computer with no luck. It is just dead. Any suggestions?

    Picked up a LM929 that also has a similar power problem, but it's lasted longer (about 3 years, so they say).

    The fuse on the power control board was totally shot. Thinking it was the result of a surge or some other anomaly, I tested it (probably not the best way) by shorting the fuse. That resulted in a releasing of the magic smoke and a small light show. I blew a trace on the power PCB.

    After I brought the monitor home, I tore it apart and took my multimeter to it. The transistor mounted on the single heatsink (not the one with two transistors mounted to it) was fully shorted, 0 ohms all around. I did some research on that chip and found that, while it's out of production, it should be replaceable with: - a STF9NK60ZD. I have two on order in case I foul up the first one.

    Meanwhile, I searched around and yanked a similar (but far out of spec and way too cheesy to work properly) MOSFET chip from a dead PC power supply I had laying around. I soldered that into place and gave it a try. Well, no more earth-shattering kaboom (actually, it now gives the typical "snap"), but it still doesn't work. I think the chip is putting out the wrong levels to work properly. I'll have to wait for the new chip to come in to see if that fixed it.

    I also found a couple bloated capacitors on the board - maybe AOC is using cheap **** capacitors that may be to blame for other problems...

Check the power pack to see if it has the required output voltage, usually 12-15 volts. solidstate power packs are prone to failure. The LCD screens require between 2 and 4 amps to power them. A strain on some power packs. Gary(Honkity Hank)

Each monitor has a different response to "no activity" from the system. So for the monitor, if you get a chance, try your monitor on another machine that you know does function. At work, neighbour, or other.

For the computer, does the it (beep) or POST (Power On Selft Test) when you turn it on, do you see and hear what you would if the monitor was connected?

If it sounds normal, then everything should be fine and luck might have it, your backup monitor is not working either, try another one from the same friend or neighbour above.

If it doesn't POST, you could have a video or other card or ribbon connection loose in the computer. Either you or a friend, or the service center, whichever feels comfortable reseating all the external and internal equipment, bearing in mind static electricity and proper handling measures for the computer.

If the monitor is completely dead, then is sounds like the power supply board has failed. Sometimes it an easy fix, by replacing a fuse. Most LCD monitors do hav a fuse, the only way to know for sure is to open the case and troubleshoot the power supply.

Hi sir, try to check for possible leaking or bloated filter capacitor in power supply board. That symptom might be caused by insufficient current draw from power supply source. Try to check sir. Maybe it could help. Thanks!

No power - suddenly went dead, no green or orange power light.There is mains power at the monitor's power input socket.

Check all caps in power supply. Look for the tops of the caps to bulge. Replace any that looks or smell bad, like a sulfur smell. Make sure you put them in the right way. I usually increase a cap that blows. If its a 16v I go to a 25v or a 25v to 35v. keeping the same ufd. Because of the surge, off and on, It helps.

Monitor not working

It may well be dead. Try testing the monitor on another working PC. Also try a working monitor on the problem PC. Then you will know whether it's the monitor or the PC graphics card that's faulty.

Monitor is black. Press power on monitor/screen shows for 1 sec

You will need a new monitor screen. I have had two screens go on me recently and what you describes normally happens

Dead monitor dell e173fp lcd monitor

This could be either down to an internal fuse blown or the main board or the capacitor on the power supply could be faulty.
