Question about Westinghouse L2046NV Monitor

2 Answers

Turned on the monitor this morning and it would not come on. Several tries, no luck. The 'on' light flashes green/red together. Bought 12/07. Can you help? (I've borrowed a friend's monitor to contact you.)

If you are to DIY repair, please read below so you will at least know what to look for.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I am finding out Westinghouse Monitors are garbage. I have spoken to several repair facilities and they recommend throwing them away. I have tried unsuccessfully to talk to someone at Westinghouse to find a local or state repair center. No such luck and no recommended solutions other than to buy a new Monitor from them with a small discount for my trouble. Ken S. Fla.

    I have the same monitor and a year and a wk later it went out. I called and Westinghouse sent me a replacement. That was 11 months ago, and now the replacement has gone out. I called again and complained,but they said since it was a refurbished monitor it only had a 90 day warranty. Now they said I can send the replacement in and for $200 more, they'll send me a 26" LED tv. hmmmmmm....

Monitor flashes logo and then turns black.with red lights on


Here's some tricks I would try. Something here, might help...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your monitor on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

Monitor light flashes green and screen is blank


Best thing to do, hook up another known working monitor to the computer and this will verify that the computer is working properly.

If you get video on the known working monitor when you turn on the computer then you know the computer has a problem.

Flashing green power light - Black screen


I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard

Similar monitor, similar problem. I actually had to dismantle the thing and replace a transistor on the mainboard.

If you're not into soldering and such, good luck.
