Re: computor monitor

The backlight or the power-supply or the inverter. Try replacing capacitors in the Power-supply, any of the larger ones. Backlights:

Monitor blinks on and off repeatedly when turning it on; after it has been off for a while. It will stop sometimes and stay on after restarting the computer. Checked the pins on the VGA cable and none...

Try another monitor on the computer, if the same thing happens with the 2nd monitor then the video card is the problem, if the problem doesn't happen then you know that the original monitor is the problem.

If the original monitor is the issue. If your handy, take the back off of the monitor and there will be a power board and a main board.

Look on both boards and there will be capacitors with a silver top on them. Good capacitors will have a flat silver top. Bad ones will have a puffy top or will be leaking from the bottom of the capacitor or the top of the capacitor.

If you see this make sure you replace them with the same UF rating and the volts can be the same or higher and they can only be put on witht the striped side facing the colored side on the board.

Westinghouse LCM-19w4 has power, but blank screen

refer to an earlier post about similar problems. Does it power up and then shut itself off. this is possibly due to two defective capacitors. 27 cents on line $1.50 at radio shack. They will be puffy on top. I am a complete novice to soldering a capacitor onto a board. but since I was junking the monitor otherwise I gave it a try. It's still working after sitting idle a year. Handy advice on soldering online. use copper wire to **** up the old solder and try not to fry the capacitors or the board. If I did it anyone can.

Power button won't turn off monitor

Well, I noticed this after I installed win xp sp3. My monitor won't turn offwhen I click the button. I have to set my power setting to a certain timeframe then require a relogin but the monitor just won't turn off otherwise.
