If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

How to fix blank spots on the screen that get worse when you touch the screen?

LG 55LH40 is showing only the top quarter of the picture. The rest of the image is blank. It functions this way on all inputs.


Large TV screens are made up of 3 or more sections, and each has a separate driver board controlling it, both on the circuits inside, and in the actual TV thin film screen panel (that's the clear panel that actually has the picture appear on it, then a back light shows it up).
To know which part has gone faulty is very difficult to diagnose without the right electronic testing equipment and training in tracking electronic faults down. But you can narrow it down quickly as there are only a few simple parts inside a TV.
If possible, you need to track down either the correct driver board and try replacing that, or unfortunately it can be the actual screen itself has gone faulty (this is rare but does happen).
As an example, I had a 32 inch TV, perfect working order back in 2007. My house electric got a power spike and the electric all went off. When it came back on, the TV only had one 3rd working (top 3rd). I had to change the whole TV front panel - all of the other parts were still perfect. To learn about TV repairs I took the display apart to track the fault piece by piece - I was told it wasn't possible by 3 engineers in shops, but it can happen, the actual flat panel was at fault, and a replacement at a yard sale for $15 fixed it again. That was a few years back and ive fixed about 30 since then, i'd say a quarter of them just needed the whole display changing (not the actual back light section or T - CON board if it's that type)
It's also possible that there is corrosion / oxidation on the screen contacts, and its easier / cheaper to try cleaning them first with appropriate electrical contact cleaner.

My acer 4520's screen is blank when i'm turning it on.


Hi,

There are approx 4 reasons why this might happen:

  1. The backlight has gone (Find a dark place and shine a torch into the screen and see if you can see an image in the background, if you see an image then the backlight has gone) - Needs a new backlight (Engineer to remove and fit) or have a new panel fitted.
  2. The panel has died - Need a new panel
  3. A cable has worked itself loose or is broken
  4. The inverter has gone - Need new inverter
  5. Long shot, the bios has got corrupted - Engineer could re-flash the bios
  6. Long shot, Mainboard onboard graphics has gone - Need new mainboard
My personal opinion is that the backlight or inverter has gone - Either way it needs to be opened up to repair it, consult a service centre and get a quote or repair it yourself if your up for it.

Thanks

The lines you saw, i;m sure they are the ones called retrace lines but know the failure could be located on the red CRT board. Most likely the video amplifier is defective and not necessarily the CRT.
