SOURCE: Replacing Inverter Board

I did some poking around and only found a few places that sold inverter boards for this monitor. Ebay has one that sells for about $80: http://cgi.ebay.com/Backlight-Inverter-for-Gateway-FPD1930-LCD-Monitor_W0QQitemZ160070918225QQcategoryZ174QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWINQ3aPOST0Q3aRECOQ3aBINQQcmdZViewItem I wasn't able to find any specific instructions posted, however, taking a typical LCD panel apart and replacing the board shouldn't be too difficult. The only hard part is not getting shocked, which is why this is not a job for the typical user. Anyway to disassemble the typical LCD you remove the pedestal from the back of the LCD then remove the screws around the back of the LCD, remove the back and look for the inverter board. Typically it is covered with a metal shield; again the hard part is knowing how to correctly handle the parts. Considering you can buy a new 17" LCD for $120 to $150 (and has a 1 year warranty) you might want to consider investing in a new monitor instead. If you have any other questions let us know, otherwise please don?t forget to rate this posting.

SOURCE: Proview PL716s computer monitor

I opend up the monitor and found that some of the capacitors on the power circuit are bulging. I'm pretty sure that is the problem. I just ordered substitute capacitors and will replace the broken ones with them when they arrive. specs for equivalent capacitor: 470uF 25V 105C

SOURCE: my screen goes black after a few seconds

Sounds like a bad solder joint on the printed circuit board. Once it heats up then it no longer makes good contact and the monitor goes black until it cools down and makes contact again. You could resolder it if you knew where it was but monitors are dangerous to go playing around with as they can hold very high charges of electricity in their capacitors that are very dangerous. It's a throw away world. Go buy a new one.

SOURCE: same problem 2 seconds on, then turns black

The problem with the monitor is the power inverter board. I took my monitor apart and tested all the power outputs. The ones going to the main board where ok but the ones going to the backlight where different. I changed the three capacitors on the power board that where located between the two heat sinks I think it was the 1000uf and the two 470uf. They looked ok but when i tested them they where off. Next on the opposite side of the board with all the little componites there are a few dry joins that you have to resolder. If you cant find then you can just resolder the whole back board it should only take 30min. If you have no idea what i am talking about i would not sugest taking the monitor apart.

The replacement board is about $50 (there are three versions), you can try troubleshooting down to components level or replace the board, hopefully is is not bad lamp assemblies (you need to have Inverter test lamp to verify if it is the lamps problem or inverter problem).

Power up


I followed instructions posted at
http://vassfamily.net/projects/DMRE85H/dmre85h.html
and I opened the unit.
I unscrewed 3 black screw on back, removed two side covers, then I unscrewed 4 silver screws (2 & 2) on both sides and removed the top cover. Then I unscrewed 4 screws (those four screws that hold the silver hlder on the board - they are down, so you need to use long screwdriver.
Carefully moving & holding HDD in the silver holder (moving it only little bit up from the board to see underneath on the board), and I was able to see 2 blown capacitors (with brown stain on top). They are C1261 & C1260 caps - ELNA 680uF RJF 10V.
I did not attempt to remove silver holder with HDD totally now.
In reverse order, I screwed everything back.
I ordered parts at www.panasonic.com support page for model SC-HT1500, then choosing SA-HT1500 - Main Unit. I found those 2 same capacitors; they cost $1.89 each. Shipping & tax came higher than price of parts. I
I already have soldering iron, and I will try to replace blown capacitors by myself after receiving ordered parts.
I will post my next message after receiving parts - approx. in a week or so.

Mitsubishi sets are notorious for leaking caps. These are the black caps labeled "Nichicon" and sometimes "Rubycon". They are easy to spot because the negative leg has what appears to be dark acid leaking down, the board has a circle of discoloring around the cap and sometimes the copper trace on the other side of the PC board is all black and contaminated. If you know what you are doing, you can remove all of these caps, clean up the board and replace with quality caps, and this usually solves the problem.
