    Thanks for the response re; my monitor issue. I do understand

    what you are saying re; the blown capacitors and replacing them in the power supply ckt.



    If you want to offer advice on what would be required to take the monitor apart and replace the components I would appreciate that. My background is in the electrical field and I do have some level of expertise but not in computer hardware of course.



    What is your shipping address and would you have a ball park cost for the repairs should I decide to send it to you. I am located in the Chicago area. Thanks again for your help and have a good day.

You have a power supply issue in the monitor, most likely a 1 or more blown capacitors. If you are comfortable with electronics and soldering I should be able to talk you thru repairing your unit. If you don't want to attempt the repair we have a repair service and can do it for you.

    Hello Larry,



    OK, If yuo take off the back plastics of the monitor and then a metal cover you will see the power supply PC board. Look for capacitors with bulging tops, they may be blown open or just slightly domed. You should find several of them ( they usually go out in groups of 2-3). On the side of each cap. you will find the value printed on the plastic cover. You may be able to get the ones you need at Radio Shack where you live if not you can order them from several internet sites, or I can ship them if you let me know the values you need. Just unsolder the blown caps and install the replacement ones. Reassemble the monitor and it should be back going. If you want us to do the repair call me at 318-447-9040 and I can give you details.

Do the Capacitor values have to be exact or can they be close?

    I should give more detail,
    My broken power supply has 3 bulged capacitors, 2 are 16volt 1000u and the one that looks worst - 16v680u has a little black around the edges of that cap of it. the black is kinda like dirty oil but is dry and can be scraped. I don't have the same capacitors on hand but have some 16volt 1000u. would it be worth a try using those?
    The monitor was free and is not in pristine condition so if it fails, oh well.
    Thanks

No power.Flatron L 1933 TR


The problem is caused by a bad capacitor in the inverter / power supply board located in the back cover where the power cord is plugged in. If you are handy with a soldering iron, remove the 2 to 4 back cover screws including the stand, carefully unclip the front decal until board is exposed, there may be a screw or 2 holding it down. Next look for a 1000uf capacitor or higher, usually has a slight bulge at top and replace, in most cases this will correct the problem.

LG Monitor (L1933TR-SF) No power. Wife cntrl-alt-del and monitor shut down. Fuse? Lamp?


neither one. Almost all lcd, plasma, and dlp monitors utilize capacitors to form a static charge to energize the screen. Those capacitors are extremely tempermental, and can go out with no notice at all.
It will work just fine, turn off, then when you turn it back on, no power. Both Best-Buy and Fry's electronics have tech's that will replace your blown out capacitors. Most of the new monitors don't have fuses anymore, nor do they have a lamp in the traditional sense. They use a chip/grid system, and the capacitors energize the grid .

Won't turn on. When plugged in, the blue light will come on, then go out. After that, nothing responds.


What is hooked to it? VGA or DVI
and is the unit that you want to view is i on?
If DVD or computer not working or set up properly. your monitor will not see or recongnize anything then shut down.
Just recently I was doing a project same thing happen to me. it was that my computer was not set up properly

LG Flatron L1930B lcd monitor - 3 vert. stripes, center one dead


sounds like the pixel controllers have gone bad or one or more of the color (RGB, RED, GREEN, BLUE) controllers have gone out. this is quite common in lcd monitors/tvs and is usually caused by pressure on the edges of the screen (you grabbed it too tightly when moving the monitor) or just faulty controllers. they are expected to eventually go bad, ask LG for yourself, they will tell you the same thing. If you just bought it, that can be considered a mfr defect that they will replace, IF IT IS IN WARRANTY!!!!! Unfort. there is no fix due to seal that placed on the actual lcd panel inside the plastic casing. Youd spend more money trying to find the part and install it than just buying a new monitor. hate to say it but im an avid gamer and have gone through about 4 lcd monitors in tha past 3 years due to everyday use

Screen flashes only for a split-second (as a second display for an iMac)


The inverter is faulty.If your Monitor is powered by a mains'kettle' type lead,then it MAY be repairable,provided you can find someone to do it.If you have an external power supply,then the chances are you have a separate inverter,and it is doubtful whetther you can find the fault or a replacement circuit board....which is why we have become a throw away nation !!

LG Flatron L1951S-SN 19 in. Flat Panel picture problem


When the picture disappears again take a flashlight and shine it in the bottom left hand corner where the Windows Start button is located. If you can see a faint image then your back light is failing. If that?s not the case the next step would be to attach another monitor to your computer to see if the problem disappears. If it does that points to the monitor, if it doesn?t then we need to take a look at the computer itself. Let us know what you find out and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
