Question about Sylvania L181 18.1" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

When I power off my LCD monitor, the screen goes all white, but once I turn the monitor back on it goes right back to displaying whatever it should on the screen. Or when I shutdown the computer it also goes white, staying white regardless of power off/on. The only solution is to unplug the power cable. If, before I unplug the power cable, I leave the monitor powered on the screen goes back to all white once power is re-applied. However, if I press the power switch, then remove the power cord, and then re-apply power it stays off. At this point the monitor acts as it should until the next shutdown or I press the power switch, in which case I am back to the start of this post again. This is the second monitor that this has happened with, the first one after switching with another computer the problem went away, however it has come back again on the same computer, yet a different monitor. It is a Westinghouse LCM-22W2, both of the monitors mentioned are the same model. Thanks you for your help, Ctullu P.S. I will try switching the monitors again and see what happens. I tried to include as much detail as I could see as relevant in this situation. Thanks again!

If this has happened to two monitors on the same computer, then i dont think the problem is with monitors, i think the problem is with the graphics on the computer, i suggest uninstalling the driver for the graphics card in device manager and then restart the pc to see if that makes any difference. The divice manager in in the properties of my computer icon, just right click and choose properties, then device manager.

LCD screen totally white when turn on


The HP is a flat screen monitor used with many desktop computers. When the LCD on your HP monitor goes white, it is an indication that your monitor's inverter board has gone bad. The inverter board is a small circuit board that transfers power from the monitor's main circuit board to the LCD screen. Replacing the inverter board means dismantling the HP monitor.

1. Power down your computer and unplug the HP monitor cable from the back of your desktop. Disconnect the power cable from the back of the monitor. Relocate the monitor to a flat work surface. Place the monitor with the screen facing downward.

2. Remove the Phillips-head screws from the monitor's base stand and from the back cover. Lift the base stand off of the monitor and remove the back cover. Peel away the foil from inside the monitor around the internal circuit board.

3. Locate the inverter board near the bottom of the monitor's casing. Unplug the power cables from either side of the inverter. Loosen the Phillips-head screws from the inverter board. Lift the old inverter out of the monitor's casing and set it aside.

4. Place the new inverter inside the monitor. Replace the Phillips-head screws and fasten it in place. Reconnect the power cables to the connectors on each side of the new inverter. Replace the foil around the outside of the main circuit board.

5. Replace the back panel and base stand, and their retaining Phillips-head screws

I hope you find it very helpful.

When I turn on the aspire one note book it goes to a white screen and will flash once and go to white screen and stays there, owver all other lights on the panel flash normal, but will not boot up. this is...


If you're still under warranty, you can diagnose one possible problem easily enough. Blank white screen with the LED indicator lights running normally otherwise will almost always mean that the LCD panel is bad. If you don't have an external monitor available, find a friend with one and hook up the laptop to that monitor. Be sure to have the laptop power off when you attach the monitor cable. Press the power up button and then the Fn+F? (whatever F key has a little icon on iyt showing a monitor) combo to switch to an external monitor. If your laptop's Operating System shows up on the monitor, you know for certain it's jus your LCD panel that's bad and you can ask the manufacturer to replace it.

Monitor displays white screen when connected and powered.


You've done sensible substitutions and it does sound like dead monitor.
The white screen is due to no pixels being controlled at all; what you are seeing is an unpolarized view of the backlight.

It's conceivable that a power supply problem is at fault in the display since it is unusual to lose all control over the screen as this has done.
The cause has to be common to all of the drive circuitry in the monitor and sounds like a job for a tech.

9 months? Is the warranty coverage known?
Unfortunately, warranties seem shorter all the time but it might be worth a shot to locate and email an inquiry to the manufacturer.
