Question about IBM ThinkVision L170 17" LCD Monitor
Monitor is a IBM Thinkvision, Its dead, wont turn on plus the green power light is on allthe time. The power light wont even go off when you power the moniter button off. the moniter is just black with no sound or picture.
Hi you can inspect that what's wrong with your monitors. After you turned it on and the
screen went black, you have to check that if you can see the image on the
screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find
the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the
icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps
inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you
cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter
board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by
yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show
leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have
soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If
anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.

I had a similar problem, IBM thinkvision L170 lcd screen, turns off about 2 seconds after turning on. Just enough time to flash the IBM logo and then turn off.
I pulled it apart and found that one of the main power supply electrolytic cap's, 1000uf 16V, was swollen. I replaced it with a 1000uf 25V cap and all is fine again.
