Planar PX2710MW frequency out-of-range


After a computer reboot, about 8 out of 10 times the monitor would display a blue "frequency out of range" message. It would take several power off/on cycles for the monitor to finally display Microsoft Windows.

I called Planar tech support. They were super-nice. After about 15 minutes in which I shared my screen with them, the tech suggested I go into thePX2710MW's main menu (i.e. "Button 1") and then click "memory recall".

Problem solved! Wow.

Planar PE191M monitor display will not stay on


iv come across this before sometimes people can see that the monitor is actually working but the light has gone out id say bad capacitors that are breaking down. if you want to DIY it take it apart and find the light pcb usually built on the power supply pcb and look for bulging or swolen capacitors this happens alot in my opinion. if you can DIY it get the same caps or same value but better ones. I might be wrong but worth a look

Pl2010m


This is the same problem I've seen several times. Fix the power supply board inside the display itself. It's giving the logic board and backlights fluctuating power and they just can't keep up.

There is a supplier of power boards online, you can google them with numbers from the board but I don't suggest using them. Look for information on the company also. I've seen a lot of complaints for this "international" company.

The fix for most of the problems on these monitors is about $8 on new capacitors (Plus shipping).

First check that you are getting a strong 12V from the external power adapter. If so, the problems may be as simple as changing out a few capacitors.

On the PL2010M monitors you need the following parts. I've added digikey part numbers to make life easier:

P10271-ND 220UF 25V Capacitor (3 or 4 depending on PS)
P10275-ND 470UF 25V Capacitor (1)
P10221-ND 470UF 10V Capacitor (4)

If you're not comfortable with soldering and de-soldering electronics, take it to a local technitian for the work and give them the parts list above. That should work to fix your issues. I've fixed several of these monitors so far. All the problems were related to the power supplies having bad capacitors. Same with the Planar PL1700 LCD monitors.

Good luck!

Backlight replacement


Are you sure it's the backlight? Many Planar LCD monitors have issues with the capacitors on their power supply boards. The symptoms include a power light and no picture, or just a flash of a picture when powering up and then nothing.

The fix for some of these problems is about $8 on new capacitors (Plus shipping).

On the PL2010M monitors you need the following parts. I've added digikey part numbers to make life easier:

P10271-ND 220UF 25V Capacitor (3/4 depending on PS)
P10275-ND 470UF 25V Capacitor (1)
P10221-ND 470UF 10V Capacitor (4)

If you're not comfortable with soldering and de-soldering electronics, take it to a local technitian for the work and give them the parts list above. That should work if the failure looks like I described. I've fixed several of these monitors so far. All the problems were related to the power supplies. Same with the Planar PL1700 LCD monitors.

Sceptre X9G-Komodo IV


I recently came accross one of these monitors (Planar PE191M) with the identical issue. The resolution was to replace the two 470ufd 25V capacitors that are located on the main power board. The main power board also contains the audio circuit and more importantly the inverter circuit that drives the CCFL backlighting. The suspect caps were identified using an ESR meter; if you happen to have one of these meters you can confirm this is the issue with your unit(s), alternatively you can just replace the two capacitors and see if it resolves your issue. Hope this info helps someone out there.
