LG L1917S - Blank Screen, Blinking Power Light

Hi
I have an LG L1917S screen, and I seem to have problems with it coming on. Sometimes it'll work, and other times it'll not turn on and the power light just blinks at me.
I've checked all cables, I've tried plugging it into another PC, I've tried my spare monitor (LG L1710B) which works fine....and I've had 6+ replacements from LG over the last year, each of which has the same problem.
My girlfriend has the exact same screen, and the exact same video card (BFG 7600GS 512MB AGP) with reguarly updated drivers. In fact, apart from me having 400watt psu and hers being 350watt, our systems are identical.
Short of just buying a new screen, is there anything that can be done to fix this? I'm at my wit's end here =P

The bulb is dying in the back. These monitors are famous for it. You can look on ebay for a new backlight, but It's not easy to find.

The screen went blank but could still hear


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed LG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Lg flatron blank screen


t certainly seems like the monitor is not getting a signal. Did this happen after you changed something, or just on normal boot up?
It could be the video card that has failed.
Also, check the pins on the connector; sometimes they can get pushed in.
If you can, try swapping out the video card or use the monitor on another computer.
Good luck,

RCA L32WD22 Screen Blank, Green Light on


in the power supply you have six

Electrolytic capacitors you have to take the cover off the power supply to get to them. 3 of them will be 1000 uf @ 16v and the other 3 will be 1000 uf @ 35v the tops of them will probaly be bulged up replace those and that should solve your problem. you can replace all 6 with 1000 uf @35v and get them at radio shack for $1.79 each.
