LG L1917S - Blank Screen, Blinking Power Light

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.

Hi my name is mike. I have a question about my LG 42LC7D TV. Its slow to turn on most times and the screen isvery dark sometimes. what could be the problem?


The problem is from the lamp of the television. It is going bad that is why it is always taking a while before the television turns on and the screen being dark sometimes.

Therefore replacing the lamp of the will do the work for you.

Most common problem is the power supply.
You can try to open up the monitor, sometimes a hard job because most of the housings are clicked together instead of screwing.
Then look at the power supply.
I'll think you gonna find some blown capacitors.
Replace them all, usually 3-4 pieces.

After watching tv for a little while the screen goes black but you can still hear the audio, if your turn it off for a while it will work again for a little while

bkent2, Look at back of unit for date of manufacture. I would guess that the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" electronic "ballast circuit" has a problem which will cause the "switch-mode-power-supply" to go into partial shutdown mode. Also note that I think unit has a temperature related solder connection of some component on the SMPS/INVERTER printed circuit board that will need to be resoldered to restore unit. Read other responses in my fixya profile to find out all your options to help you deal with this black screeen problem. 12fixlouie

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,

Seems to me that your power supply has weak 330 or 470 Mfd 200 volt capacitors.
Use computer grade Caps
I would have them changed first.
Thanks Guy9
