NEC LCD 1912 (silver)

Everything was working perfect untill today (and I really love this monitor it matches all my PC gadgets) I had the Electric Co. over to check what I thought was a problem with my power because my plasma tv looks crappy
(Not The Monitor) they tested everything inside and outside nothing wrong with my electric I just thought I would tell you the events leading up to the monitor failure. The Electric Co. asked me to turn off all breakers in the house except where the tv is they shut power off out side and removed meter during these process I forgot to turn off PC Monitor Modem Rouiter Etc they are all on the same surge protector power strip (Its a cheapy)
after the power co left I booted up the PC everything works except the monitor NO green power led no picture at all I changed power cords removed it from PC into another room dissasembled it found a small fuse tested it not the fuse no smell of burning.
I Called NEC they said it was only a 1 year warranty I see here 3 years They want me to ship ity ti Ohio $30.00 to diagnose $50.00 labor pluss parts and shipping costs. THEY WON'T SELL ME THE POWER SUPPLY BOARD ! which is what I think it is .

FAX them the SKUs and the receipt and the warrantee saying 3 years, is what sounds right in this case. Their bench fees sound pretty normal otherwise, and appropriate since you disassembled the monitor.

What was the matter with your flatscreen? William Shatner was still on it? Not just you, mate.

If you want to go all the way with testing the supply, you may as well test input impedance, spoil about for failed bridges and coils, get your soldering iron used to lead-free solder touchiness, etc. Once you replace the bridge and sleep-power trip DIAC, you can consider that due-diligence test-repairs.

Are you running a Watt Mizer or something to check your power quality lately, I wonder?

Hi I just bought 7 NEC Multisync LCD1550v monitors and they all have the same problem. when plugged in all i get is a blinking power light. 1 of them showed signs of life for just a second but that was it....

You buy a new LCD Monitors, now still not working., if that new LCD Monitor is OK, then check your VGA Card, its inside the CPU maybe its broke or not connect properly inside. This are the cause of not displaying in your LCD Monitors.
If you here some beeps of your CPU then find out how many beeps and tell us here immediately.

Monitor : no display and blue led light is blinking

The power supply is the first thing that the 110v electric line goes into. The invertor is the next item past the power supply, or sometimes contained within it. I do not thing monitors are a DIY repair.      First substitute a different monitor to confirm that it is, in deed , the monitor and not the video card.

No power on NEC LCD1912 LCD monitor

NEC Repair Services of course, where he would order the replacement part; but given you can't use them without a Service Contract (four figures; yet useful for a repair shop with a corporate client with lots of NEC equipment) the diagnosis you got sounds reasonable. Find the NEC Authorized repair specialist in town with a bench fee you like, or go shopping!

I like the idea of reusing the old thing as much as anyone; if you can find the make and version of the working components, you're welcome to use them in native mode (no need for the control/interfaces chip; a PIC or other microcontroller can be substituted), make a projector, use the supply and other functions with their control lines 'tied low' with 200 ohm resistors, etc. I would be inclined to think that the video amps and detection circuits at the inputs failed (in hopes of saving the interior components,) and just replace those after I had some success driving the test points to force it into an ON state; but a positive ID of a bad chip is not going to put high hopes on that fix. A fixable unit would usually start to come on, then trip off when a failed functional section (or absence of video) was detected by a working control circuit.
