Question about Liquid Video L17LCD2 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Envision LCD monitor keeps cycling on and off

Monitor had been working perfectly until a couple of days ago. Now keeps cycling on and off. Briefly shows Envision splash screen, then briefly shows computer output display, then goes black, repeats... I have checked the system with a known good monitor. The system is working properly. I have tested the monitor with known good cables.
I fear that there is a loose connection/failed solder joint, etc. inside the monitor. Cost to troubleshoot and repair would probably exceed replacement cost.
I am awaiting reply from Envision, but monitor is long out of warranty and I do not hold out much hope.

    after doing some additional research, I concluded that the suggestion by louie12fix above was the most likely - a bad capacitor. After reviewing the schematics (available free online) I decided to open the unit and see if I could visually spot a bad capacitor. It was an old monitor, and if I couldn't fix it, it was junk. Therefore, I figured I had very little to lose. So I opened it and looked. Sure enough, there was a swollen capacitor on the power board. I checked the rating, obtained and installed a replacement, and now it works like new. SUCCESS is fun.

Davagain, Your stated symptom leads me to believe that L17LCD2 has a problem in it's power supply/electronic CCFT ballast circuit. The primary cause of the on/off, on/off, being that the SMPS is detecting a fault and then going into SHUTDOWN, trying to save it's self from catastrophic failure. This "failure mode" is typical of all brands across the board, not just Envision! And as the age and total number of hours of use grows, the "body count" also increases. I have, with luck, repaired a couple of them that were not of the catastrophic type. So, my advice to you is this. If Envision can't provide a viable solution, then work with a dealer to trade it in for NEW. If COST of new is still an issue, there are other options that may be of intrest to you. With a statement like "known good monitor" and "failed solder joint" I know you are NOT the typical consumer/user type of person. FYI also try search for "failed electrolytic capacitors" and or "swollen capacitors" and "bad caps", which also could be a culprit inside your Envision. In any case I would like to hear back from you on what your plan of action is. I will try to be of some help. Bye for now. lmistyrel@aim

I have a Envision EN-7100e monitor. Downloaded

catamount309, This is only a guess, but unit may have internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter" board problem. When screen goes BLACK, is it also BLANK? If you can see WIN-desktop with aid of bright flashlight 1 inch from screen, then SMPS is in partial shutdown mode. If you see nothing, then SMPS is in full shutdown. In either case, Technician will need to repair the SMPS/CCFL inverter board. If KNOWN GOOD monitor works with PC, then you know 7100e is bad. Do you know and understand how the new energy efficient screw-in curlie-Q light bulbs work? If the "electronic ballast circuit" not working, then it can't light-up the CCFL tubes on the reverse side of LCD panel then you see black. Do more reading in my fixya profile for more options open to you. Do your research first!! Hey, reading is free!!!
Will you fix or trade for new? 12fixlouie

We have an Envision 9410e 19" LCD monitor which is about 4 years old. Recently it has started being very slow to start up, especially in the morning after the system is not in use all night. The screen...

cmgusa, Reconnect 9410e to original PC. Please note if same symptom occurs again. This sounds like an intermittant or failed solder connection of some component on the inverter/smps power supply board. Have you tried the FLASHLIGHT test when the monitor goes to a BLACK screen? You did not state the approx # of hrs of use this unit has on it. The Flashing you describe is most likely the cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes trying to start-up. If they don't light then you get a black screen. They (CCFT) get their voltage from the inverter section of the power supply. But anyway... Your options as a consumer/user are as follows. Check with Envision to see if they have a swapout program... you send them your 9410e +$50-$90 and they send you a REFURBISHED 9410e with 30-90 day warranty. or Find local TECH (TV-Monitor) who knows forward and backwards all there is to know about repair of LCD monitors. There are some very good tech's right here on fixya that could do the repair and not rip you off. Last but not least is try to effect repair yourself. If this last option is of intrest get back to me only after doing web search of monitor disassembly video clips on youtube and doing search for things like bad caps or recapping and inverter repair + have a minimal understanding of how a SMPS/inverter powersupply functions. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel Bye for now.

Probably blown capacitors, the 19" widescreen uses 6 16V 1000uF
Do you have a soldering gun? Its not that hard to fix, get the capacitors on ebay for $6-$8 with shipping.
