Won't turn on

Hello! I was given this monitor as the original owner was going to trash it, but I thought I'd take a look at it to see if it's repairable. It won't turn on. The LED on the power button will blink faintly when it's plugged in and NOT connected to a PC (no vga cord attached). ONce it is connected to the PC with the VGA cord the light stops blinking and nothing else happens. Power supply? what to check first? Thanks in advance!

Re: won't turn on

My monitor died and wouldn't turn on. Found 3-4 of the electrolytic capacitors had bulging tops and a dead short across them. Removed the caps but the short remained. Found the mbr10100 to220 packaged dual diode rectifier had a short across one side. Replaced the capacitors with Pansonic 10,000 hour
units and the 10 amp mbr10100 with a mbr20150 20 amp rectifier which brought the monitor back to normal operation.

Re: won't turn on

Could be a power supply issue. Maybe it's not getting enough voltage from the power supply unit. Could also be some bad solder points on the circuit board, or maybe a burnt capaciter.

Monitor won't turn on I have connected everything properly and still no signal

I didn't see whether the power strip where you have all devices plugged in was turned on. Plus, you only showed one side of the monitor. There should be an indicator light on the monitor which indicates that electricity is running through the unit. Lastly, did you read the owner's manual before putting this unit together? Check all options and let me know what happens.

I have a Westinghouse LCM-19v1 SL that only stays on for a few minutes. Then turns blank screen. Then I have to reboot the PC to get it to turn it back on again. I tested the power supply of the monitor w/...


It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. If your problem is not the capacitors then it would be the backlights and that is much more difficult to replace.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

I need help fixing this problem, please

Common problem with this model is bad solder connections on the coils in the power supply. With good eyes or (for me) a magnifying glass, looking at the bottom of the circuit board will reveal the culprit.
Easy fix.

The monitor lights up but stays all bright white

I think that monitor might have been retired before you bought it; the white screen says that the backlight is working but the pixels are not being controlled by video so either the video cable is trashed or the input electronics are no longer functional.
You might try the following:
Go to the Control Panel, System, Monitor and delete the monitor listed. Then, with the monitor connected and on, reboot the PC to force Win to 'find' the monitor and install a fresh copy of the driver for it.
If that doesn't work, you may just have a paper weight.

Screen went Blank (Black) with no Power Indicator

the VGA cable for a CRT monitor is the same as the VGA cable for an flatscreen monitor. The VGA protocol hasn't changed between the two technologies, so if you tried it with a different known working cable and it still didn't work, then it is the monitor, and not the cable.

Does the monitor's power led turn on? If not, it could be a power supply issue. Unfortunately lcd monitors are not very user-servicable. There isn't much in there that you can touch if you crack it open.
