Question about IBM ThinkVision L170 17" LCD Monitor
I have a second-hand IBM ThinkVision which does not show a picture. The manual suggests it might be lack of brightness or contrast, but how can one follow the instructions and adjust this when there is nothing showing on the screen?
When first turned on, an image flashes on the screen then off again. This may be an IBM logo, or in other circumstances a message in a box.
Shall be glad of any help.
Check that the computer is working by first trying another monitor with the computer if possible, or try the ibm on another computer, it may not be getting signal from the computer and so going back to stand by mode.
if the problem happens with a computer that is confirmed working (try it on another computer that gives picture to another display or try another display with this computer) Then the issue could be the inventer board or the backlight.
do you have picture if you put the screen under a light and look closely? could be that the backlight is out.
here is a backlight repair guide:
the backlight kit may come with a new inventer so if the inventer thats in the display is bad replace it with the one that came with the kit, and in that case also replace the backlight with the ones that came with the kit.
