Question about Balance CM2019 19" LCD Monitor

4 Answers

Screen went black and will no longer power up.

I think I heard a faint "pop" and then the screen went dead and the monitor will no longer power up. I'm not technically qualified to open the unit to work on its innards and if I try, I don't think I would be able to identify a fuze if there is indeed one inside. So, is repair feasible for an amateur?

Dude the pop you heard was a capacitor on the circuit board blowing.one way to check is if the power light still comes on but the screen stays blank.new caps cost about $1.50 .if you do open the back just stay away from the transformer were the power cord goes in.capacitors look like little tubes about .5 to 1 inch high and they will have a cross etched on top that is supposed to prevent them from popping but they still sometimes do. if the tops of any caps are rounded (they should be perfectly flat were the cross is) then they are prob blown and need replaced. if you look up replacing caps on google you can find step by step instructions on how to replace them.kilroy

Dude!! if I were on your shoes, don't attempt to fix it or you will get electricuted ( you don't want to hurt yourself, do you?) I suggest that you have to purchase a new LCD monitor since you've heard a faint pop, it only makes sense that your motherboard exploded. Since the circruitry of a LCD monitor is so sensitive that in fact it has delicate parts.

Heard a pop and screen went black


most likely an internal component. to further isolate it, try using another video cable to connect it to the computer, test it on another computer and try another monitor on your computrr. if the monitor fails even with a different cable and computer, time to get it repaired or replaced if under warranty.

Screen went black faint images


Hello,
If the screen went black and you can still see faint images of what your computer is currently showing, the typical issue would be a burnt out backlight. For the repair cost, I'd say just invest in a new monitor.
Just to cover the bases, make sure your brightness and contrast settings on the LCD are not set to zero.

The screen went dark and the power button is a steady yellow color instead of a steady green. a loud popping sound was heard before the button went yellow; before that it had been a flashing green button...


pseroy, If you visit YOUTUBE check out the longer video clips of LCD monitor disassembly and repair of the most common type of failure modes that ALL BRANDS have. Whenever posting to this site it would be nice if we could also get a little bit of history-- like age of unit and approx total hours of "on" time. My best guess is that the "switch-mode-power-supply" has finally bit the dirt. Popping sound was the "electrolytic filter capacitors" venting to the atmosphere because they couldn't stand the heat in the unit any longer. In any case a tech should evaluate unit or if it is >3-4 yrs old look to trade in for new. also check web for swollen capacitors in lcd monitors and "cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes" and their power source which is called an INVERTER circuit. Here is quick and dirty lesson. Monitor SMPS makes dc voltage for inverter (electronic ballast) circuit which makes 800-1200 volts ac to light up the CCFT's. You are dealing with something similar to the new screw-in curlie-Q CFL lightbulbs only their "ballasts" are dirt cheap and are called "converters" AC to AC. Hope this info was of some help.

Heard pop and had burnt smell from DELLE207WFP.


Hello

The pop you heard was probably a capasitor. If i am correct the smell will get more prominet how longer the screen is on.
If it is a capasitor, which i believe it is, it will not be expensive at all to repair. Just take it to an electronic repair shop and let them just put in a new capasitor. The vapours of the smell is not deadly fo the small amounts of time and the concentration you are inhaling, but it gives me headaches.

Please rate this.

Best regards

Black screen


It may be repairable, but you will spend less money to replace it.
You did not mention if this is a CRT or a LCD monitor.
If it is a CRT the Rasters and flyback are faulty causing dead areas on the screen.
If it is a LCD then you are having pixels dying, and it will not last too much longer.
You may want to try it on another computer just to verify that it is not your video card.

Two problems vx922 Black screen of Death and vx910 no power


You may want to tey another computer or another cable or update your video card drivers. Otherwise look very closely and see if you are able to see a very faint image of your background picture or icons if you have any.

Really im not kidding it might be a backlight issue.

Acer al1711 shows only a white screen


These are pretty old now but I'll respond anyhow-
When there is absolutely no screen content and white, it means that ALL pixels are turned off; black, means all are turned on. If you have a white screen, it means that a component in the video stream has failed; a black screen (preferable failure!) often means that the backlight lamp or its inverter have failed. The latter is a potential DIY fix, a dead IC in the video path normally not since most of the signal chips (ICs) are placed and soldered by robots and the pin spacing on those is pretty much beyond the capabilites of an untrained hand.
The only exception I can think of is if the ICs no longer have voltage supplied to them from the main power supply but you would need at least a cheap multimeter to locate that.

Shadows and Ghosts on the Screen


Plugged up display via the VGA cable to an HP dv6000 laptop; the Acer powered up and displayed fine ... however, noticed a faint waving motion in the picture, as if the screen was literally gel and began to wave, from top to bottom as it appeared. Best I can describe it ... any suggestions as to why? I only connected it to this HP to try it out, I ordered it from newegg and wanted to make sure pixels werent dead on arival. I will be getting an Aurora 7500 (Alienware): AMD X2 6000, Windows Vista Premium, 2GB RAM, GeForce 512 8800GT, SLI ready motherboard ... I heard good things of Acer and hoped this display would look great with my soon-to-come setup and im sure it will. However, just nervous it will do this on my Aurora. Any help or suggestions would be beyond appreciated!!

ACER SCREEN IS BLACK BUT CAN FAINTLY SEE LOG IN BOX


Sounds like the backlight for the LCD is dead, either the light itself or the power inverter. If you're not a tech, you should take it in for repair. If you are a tech, you can usually find replacement lamps and inverters on EBay. Hope this helps.

19"ViewSonic LCD Monitor wont work at all !!


If you have the pc on and the monitor light stays green, take a flashlight to the screen. If you can see the images while shining the flashlight into the screen, they will be hard to see but they will be viewable, then its most likely the back light. The vx900 takes 4 bulbs and they are about $12 US each. Anyone who knows how to solder should be able to replace them.
