Question about Proview PL913S 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Wont stay on

**Copied from another product however my problem is the same. No picture what so ever. even when shining a light into the screen. would this be an inverter issue? **

 

Hi, Whenever I turn on my monitor it displays the computers output briefly (~half a second) before going blank. I have tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result so it is definetaly not a computer problem. The power light on the front of the monitor stays green when the screen goes blank. Whenever I turn the power off and back on again the exact same thing happens.
Help please!

 

**PLEASE NOTE - This solution applies to ALL LCD's but NOT CRT's**


It's a very common problem with all LCD monitors

LCD's use four small Cold Compact Fluorescent bulbs to back light the display. (thats what gives the LCD it's brightness allowing you to see it)

The inverter board runs these lights and when they go bad they will typically show symptoms like you have or the monitor power light comes on and you have either no display or a very dim display.

If you ever have one that has no display but the power light is on you can check by shining a flashlight directly into the LCD from the front (right into the screen) if you can see an image then it's either the inverter board (most likely) or the CCFL bulbs have gone bad.

The inverter board and CCFL's are replaceable.

Good Luck,
El Duderino

IF there is no display even with a flashlight, the P/S board is malfunctioning. Bad capacitors or LCD driver board circuit. Mine did this and it was bad caps, 4 of 8 were bad and a burned out chip on the P/S board.

Zenith plasma tv wont stay on model:z50pj240


This could be caused by multiple things. The first problem that comes to mind is a bad power supply in my experience. The second problem that comes to mind is possibly a bad t-con or backlight inverter board. Could you tell me, when the TV powers back off can you see a picture in on the screen if you shine a flashlight up to the display?

Picture works for a while than goes out, but the sounds stay on. I turn the TV off wait a minute, turn on, picture works than goes out again ??


It sounds to me like you either have a bad inverter board(The board that lights up the screen),or a bad bulb in the screen itself.When you turn it on,and the screen goes away,shine a light on the screen,and see if you can see a picture.I hope this helps.Thank You very much!

My mobile phone screen wont turn on!


amy .... first you need to get the data cable for that phone so that you can hook it up to your computer. second there is an lg program that will allow you to download your contacts etc to your computer. you may already have both of them. if not go to http://www.lge.com/ca_en/support/product/support-product.jsp and locate your phone, it should give you the information about the data cable if you don't already have it.

Princeton VL1715-1 no display


From what you say there is probably not much you can do with it, the parts inside are SMD, to small
to work on. If you could still see txt on the screen when you shine your torch, it could be fixed by
replacing the back lighting PCB.

Hope this helps
Have a nice day.

Take a strong flashlight when the set is on and shine the light into the screen see is you have a picture as it may be the backlight. If the screen lights with no picture its a pcb board problem. Please verify your model number and I will try and assist you.
