Re: Monitor will not power on....

I just repaired one. Symptom was no power at all. When I plugged it in, I could hear the switching supply making a noise, like it was trying to turn on. I opened it up and It ended up being 2 capacitors in the power supply section. I seen the tops were swollen, they were 1000uF 10V. They were for the 5volt power section I believe.
I think they were C824 and C825. I removed both of them and replaced them with one 2200uF 10V cap. I powered it up and it works now.

Re: Monitor will not power on....

It seems that the 1905FP has a problem with a faulty power connection. I have had a few of these that work fine then all of a sudden it stops working and have found that if the power is held in a certain position it will work just fine.

Unable to attain 1024x768 screen resolution on my generic pnp monitor (asus eee pc 900hd)

Verify that you have the correct and most recent video drivers installed on your system. The video card is what delivers the appropriate resolution to a monitor.
This will depend upon if you have the default installed Linux OS designed for the Netbook or if you installed Windows XP on it.

Monitor wont power up

It is possible especially if it has a loose or slightly faulty component and moving the monitor has caused it to fail especially if you bump it in the move.
Does the power LED light up when you switch on the monitor?

LiquidVideo L17LCD2 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor - Power Issues

firstly stop turning it off and on because you will blow something else like a power board then it will be a big paper weight.
next get a torch and when it is powered on and supposed to be showing images, shine the torch at the screen.
if you can see everything then you have a broken backlight or problem with your backlight and connections.
they cost approx £15 and a little labour, its not a big job. you may be able to do it yourself if you can get hold of a service manual.

LED's blinking, no video

Your C5707 transistors in the monitor have failed. Suggest replacing all four with the Sanyo C5707 transistor. A common problem.
