    I have a proview 19" LCD TV PA-19DK5. In the last few days when I turn on the tv the picture appears and disappears after 1 sec. audio is fine, when I use my xbox 360 through the component video, the picture will last about 1 min with a buzzing/humming sound then disappear. 

    I read some of the posts and decided to take apart the TV and inspect the capacitors, I found NO bulging, leaking or damage on any of them.

    Here is a list of the capacitors on each board

    The power supply board (supplies power to the backlight and power to the "controller board")

    4 - 470 mfd 35V
    3 - 680 mfd 25V
    1 - 1000 mfd 25V
    3 - 470 mfd 25V
    1 - 22mfd 50V
    Big cap. (1.25"*0.5" dia.) folded down and glued could not read it. 9 blue flat style caps. and two beige (could not read them)

    On the "controller" board (the board gets power 12v&5v and other signals from the power supply and has 50+ socket connector leading to the I/O ports and a connection to the LCD grid)

    9 - 470 mfd 16V
    1 - 220 mfd 10V
    9 - 100 mfd 16V

    2 - 47 mfd 16V

    11 - 10 mfd 16V

    I am not sure what capacitors to re solder and Iam not sure where to start. The monitor does not appear to have a power supply issue, however I would think the cpas. going to the backlight would be a logical place to start. Can you please give me some guidance as to what caps. to solder and what to ignore, also could it be related to inverter failure.

    And suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Ok I have posted a fix for this but I will do it again it will require some soldering technique unplug the unit from the wall and the computer and set it down on its face(lcd side down) open the back of the unit and disconnect the lcd unit and the backlight power leads. remove the screws from the power unit cover. remove the screws from the vga board then gently pull up the board turn it over and you will see a grouping of 6 capacitors that are blown you may also see another single 120 mfd at 25 volts blown the capacitors are rated 470 mfd at 25 volts but look at the side of one when you have unsoldered it to make sure you get the proper capacitance . make sure you solder in the capacitor the correct way there is a neg and pos side to them and they switch sides halfway through the reworking. reassemble the unit and plug in the back light power leads and then plug in the lcd unit to the vga lead make sure its securely pushed onto the connector re screw the ten screws and then reattach to the computer and plug in the wall and the lcd should come back to life. be very careful doing this kid of work

After a storm the other night my Proview PL866s amber light is blinking - however when I press the amber button (which usually turns green and then it works) nothing is happening except blank screen and...

If this happened after a storm, the monitor may have been subjected to a power surge, which unfortunately might have killed it.

If you have another monitor (or a friend who has one) try plugging that other monitor into your computer. If the second monitor works, yours will need to be replaced as the input was probably destroyed by the power surge.

If the second monitor also doesn't work, there may be a problem with your computer, most likely with the power supply (this is the part most often damaged by a power surge). You may want to have it examined by a professional computer repair person at that point.

Hope this is helpful!

Blue power button flashing with blank screen

This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's the problem. You can confirm that it's the monitor and not your computer or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try.

If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old it is, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

Blank Screen..Will not power off

Have you checked your video source to ensure that this isn't a problem with your PC or whatever you're displaying on it? Try using a different display and see what happens. Try putting this LCD on a different PC and see what happens. If indeed it is this screen then it could be something as simple as a loose cable. Start simple and work from there.

Blank Screen..Will not power off

The flash light test only works with lcd monitor as they have back lights. Double check the connections again, also, if you can borrow a monitor try it on your pc, it may be your graphics driver needs to be uninstalled and re-installed, but you will need a monitor to see.
