There is one thing you can try. I have a internet cafe and I had 2 LG L1717S monitors that did the same, I went into the monitor screen settings and restored to factory settings. That sorted that problem out for me.

Common cause of this is the VGA or DVI connectors not screwed on tight on either the back of the PC or the back of the monitor.

Also try removing power by unplugging for 30 seconds, sometimes that will reset things.

Why is it when my flatron monitor is plugged in to my laptop, the flatron screen reads "power saver on" and then turns off???

Have you pressed the key to allow VGA is usually a combination of "Fn" + an "F" key
(at the top of the keyboard).
"Fn" is usually found near the left "Ctrl" or "Shift" keys. The F key has picture of a monitor or "LCD" on it

Lg flatron blank screen

t certainly seems like the monitor is not getting a signal. Did this happen after you changed something, or just on normal boot up?
It could be the video card that has failed.
Also, check the pins on the connector; sometimes they can get pushed in.
If you can, try swapping out the video card or use the monitor on another computer.
Good luck,

LG L1717S has no light

Hi, this is a common problem. One thing you want to observe is that the screen works, what's going on is that the screen LCD illumination doesn't work while the screen display is active. LCD's have screen lamps behind the screen, they are often called CCFL, (Cold Cathode Flouroscent Lamps). The inverter board in the monitor supplies High Voltage power to the lampls, so the colored wires should lead you to the lamps. This is the problem causing the screen to dark. You can research the model lamp type for an accurate replacement. Usually there are 4 or 6 lamps in LCD Monitors.

LG Flatron L1717S Won't Turn On

neaverules, The first board you will want to inspect very closely (and I mean very closely) will be the SMPS board. you know the one that has the AC line cord plugged into it. Beg,Borrow,Steal the biggest magnifying glass, or 10x-20x inspection microscope you can get your hands on!!! Here is what you will be looking for. On the bottom side of the circuit board check for bad solder connections over the whole board. look for solder joints that appear to be "frosted" "dull" as opposed to shiney and bright like a sliver ring in the jewelry shop. Next inspect for very fine almost invisible "circular" hairline fractures around the "Through Hole" leads of the larger and heavier components. Then move on to the 1, 2, 3watt resistors checking them also. Pay attention to areas of board that have been discolored. Also check all of the Electrolytic Filter Capacitors. Make sure that the tops are still FLAT. BAD (failed) caps will be swollen on top. ( DOMED). The before mentioned hairline fractures are caused by thermal and /or vibration stress. Get back to me with results. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel BYE for now.
