Have had a vertical line in screen for couple of years (monitor about 3+ yrs old) and now screen has gone blank. Like others, I see a quick picture as computer is booted up. What specific problems are indicated? What is the cost? Could I reasonably expect being able to fix it on my own with new part(s)? Thanks for your expertise. John

I am using this great LCD for about an year. But few times in the past my LCD didnt show up the display though the Green light was still ON, turning off the LCD and opening it again always solved the problem. But now My LCD completely went blank. Turning off/on didnt work at all now. I've tried couple of other tweaks mentioned on this site but they didnt work. I am just seeing a blank screen with green light ON. and ya theres a very low hissing sound coming from the LCD.
This is the way how to examine
what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen stopped working, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or
not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best
angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or
any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside
screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot
see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you
have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It
may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board
because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a
technician to do so.
Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know. Thank you,
Try your monitor on another computer, just to make sure it's the monitor and not a video adapter problem in the computer. It may be possible to fix it if you can find a reliable computer or TV service shop nearby. However, the cost may not be worth it for a 2-year old monitor. Unfortunately, the best solution is probably to buy a new one. : (
Crackling sounds are probably due to a couple of capacitors failing due to age, on the control board. (They can also "whine"). Should be easily replaceable by any experienced technician. Not a difficult job.
