Question about CTX PV 720 17" LCD Monitor

Open Question

Green light comes on screen would come on after 10 min warmup now nothing.

I have pulled the screen apart and found that heating the high voltage board with a hair drier will allow the unit to come on after about 20 seconds. Previously supplying signal to the monitor for about 10-20 minutes and cycling the power would fix it. Is the indicitive of a bad capacitor or something simple that I could change out on the board?

SOURCE: ctx pv 720 lcd monitor backlight drops post plus 30 seconds!

The problems on the backlight inverter power supply. Open it up and check all the capacitors, it look like a tiny battery cap on the side had writing on it. (Example 1000uf 16v ) if you are lucky you can spot it right away...with a bulged on top of each caps. If not, just replaced all of the caps... Good luck!

SOURCE: My monitor appears to have died. It seems to flicker on once every two seconds, just long enough to see there is indeed something displayed. Is there something simple i can do to fix this or should I

This series of monitor has a bad habit of destroying it's capacitors. I have fixed two S762G monitors (almost the same as a S761) by replacing 2 bulged capacitors on the motherboard with new ones. They cost me 50 cents each (plus shipping of like 3 bucks) from Didn't carry them at my local Radio Shack, but they did have them on the shelf at my local Fry's. (about the same price as digkey if you include the shipping costs.)

I would look for any capacitors on the mainboard that have their aluminum disc top bulged up. That's a sure sign of a blown capacitor. Anyone with good soldering skills can replace those for you. (making sure to put them in the right direction for their polarity, and getting the correct rating/voltage/temp) The two caps I had to replace on my S762G's were C21 and C22 and they were both 1000uF 16v 105c high temp radial electrolytic capacitors. Make sure you get the exact same specs for your replacements as from your originals.

The typical symptom of the blown capacitor on this monitor is that it will power on a few seconds, showing the screen properly, then make a slight pop and the power light will go off, then it will come back on again, and do it over and over. Sometimes they will "Warm up" after a while and stay on, but that will only work for a short time (typically under a month or two). After that, the capacitors will be fried and need replaced anyway. Best to fix them right away, to prevent possible damage to other components.

The difference between this symptom and a typical inverter board failure is that the monitor will power cycle repeatedly. Inverter failures usually show up as the backlight only turning on for a second or two showing a good display, then going off and staying off until the monitor is manually power cycled, and if you look really carefully under good lighting you can still make out the display with the backlight dead.

Hope this helps someone...

My Gateway ZX4300 screen is not working. The screen does not turn on at all but the fan is working and the hard drive is as well.

gateway zx4300 black screen fix

i think i might have found a fix, if you know how to fix the xbox with the fan trick this one will sound close to the same.

if when you turn the computer an you get nothing not one bit of color or brightness from the screen this is your fix, well it worked for me.

i am not responsible for any more damage you might encounter, this does require disassembly

1. take the computer apart until you have the fan and heat sink in front of you.

2. remove fan and heat sink from mother board.

3. (at own risk) with computer open an heat sink off plug in the power cord and turn the computer on.

4. leave computer on for 8 to 10 mins.

5. turn computer off after 10 mins remove power cord and re install heat sink and fan.

6. hold pwr button down for 15 sec.

7. plug computer back in and you should now have your screen back.

this method worked for me i am using the computer with the bad screen to type this up an has been restarted a couple times an is still working fine! hope this works for you!!

ViewSonic NextVision N4060w 40 in. LCD TV, will not turn on.

While this isnt an exact fix at work, you will at least be able to view your tv. We have one at work that would do nothing when you hit the power on button, just the usual geen led flashing. We pulled the cover off and found the bulging caps, more than likely from brown outs. But we also found that none were holding a charge. So we held the power button on for at least five min, after the led would stay on for about 30 sec and then turn off. We kept hitting the power button and the screen would try to come on. It finally did. After it did come one we can power on and power off aslong as we dont turn it off for more than 10 min. After 10 min of it being off we have hold down power button again and start the whole process again. So the main problem i believe is the caps arent holding a charge, to be able to kick the high voltage circuit on. We did not replace any caps but if we do end up changing parts will post what was changed and cost. Hope this helps

I don't know Samsung's warranty policy for Australia so I'd email them right away. It could be an input voltage problem. It could be heating up components in your equipment causing it to shut down and reset when it cools off. As the green light is not even coming on may be an indiction of this. So I'm guessing you are currently shortening the life of your equipment. Rich

No video on a 50H82 Toshiba Projection

If the screen is lit, then there is high voltage. If there is no video, and the screen is lit, then there is a loss of video. The fault can be anywhere along the main video path before it gets decoded in to the red, blue, and green compositions.

If the screen is not lit, most likely there is a high voltage failure, or there is a failure in the bias supply for the tubes.

When there is a loss of high voltage, this can be from any of the components in the high voltage area. Some of the main things that go defective are the flyback, high voltage multiplier, and various other small components.

Have you considered to replace the set with a good Plama or LCD set? This repair may end up being on the expensive side.
