Question about Mag Innovision 19" LCD Flat-Panel Monitor LT916S

1 Answer

Mag 17" goes black, changing capacitors but 4 are 1000uf instead of 470.

First of thank you for giving the info on how to take off the bezel. My screen(Mag 17" 700p) also goes black(the power light is still on) until i turn it off and then turn it on again. And it doesn't stop from doing it.

Now I'm just a little confused on the capacitors. There are 2ea 470uf and there are 4ea 1000uf.

Am I supposed to replace the 1000uf with 470uf? Also where the 2 yellow square things are it seems to be blackish around the area. I have a picture here. I am concerned that something is burning.

Any help would be appreciated it.

Thank you kindly.

    I have had the same problem with a 19" widescreen MAG, I replaced two caps on the power supply board that were burnt and bulging, then I came across an easy solution, that fixed my problem, as soon as you turn the monitor on, hit the menu button, the first option should be brightness, quickly turn that way down to like 20 or so, after i did that my monitor has stayed on.

    Thank you both for your help. I replaced both the 470uf and I'm having a hard time finding the 1000uf. I have read through this forum and as far as I can tell all 6 capacitors should be 470uf. But in my case they are not. I know someone before me had tried fixing this and only lasted a while. My other concern was the Power Inverter Board. It looks really burnt around the inverters. So I am not sure if that is what needs replacing or if the capacitors(1000uf) are too much? And if thats the case I might as well throw it out because that part is hard to find. I will keep searching for those capacitors. Thank you for all your help. And if there are any other solutions please let me know. Thank you kindly.

Replace the caps with the correct picofarad ratings. IE if you take out a 470, then put a 470 back in. Also note the voltage on them. You can go higher, but do not go lower. So if they are 470 16v (16 volts), then you can use 470 25v (25volts) etc. Just don't get them mixed up.
Best option is to replace all of one rating, then all of the other. Also note the stripe on the side of the capacitor. This indicates negative and should match up to a circle printed on the board (probably hidden under the current capacitors) with a light side and a dark side. The negative (stripe) on the capacitor goes to the dark side of the circle.

The burn marks are quite common. It's from heat being transferred through the PCB to dissipate it.

If you are unsure about any of this then just post back here.

    If you cannot locate 1000uf then go a little higher. 1200 or even 1500 will be fine. Just remember the voltages need to be the same or higher then the original rating.

    The burn marks around the inverters are nothing. They just get very hot when operating.

E1 is a 100 uF 16 VDC capacitor. I have been repairing these units lately and have experienced some of the same symptoms (LED goes red but doesn't transition to green after 30 seconds like it should). I have been able to repair some of these units. Make sure the power supply is working properly before spending significant time on the D2A board. The power supply is responsible for supplying 12, 5, and 3.3 VDC to the D2A board. A defective PS will measure 14.5 instead of 12, 6 instead of 5, and 2.9 instead of 3.3. The AC ripple should be about 5 mV on the 3.3 and the 5 volt supplies when loaded. The 12 volt can be as high as 50 mV on a good PS. The culprits are C12 (1000uf) and C10 (470 uf) which are the filter capacitors for the 3.3 and 5V outputs respectively. C12, the capacitor for the 3.3 V output is especially critical because it is used to feed the voltage regulator and overvoltage shutdown circuit. D7 is a hot part and can also fail sometimes. I have repaired 50% of my units just by changing these capacitors. I still have units where the D2A board is bad with a known good power supply. If anyone has more info on the D2A (like a schematic) please pass it along

Mag monitor lt782s - green light on screen black

This means that the power supply board has a problem. The problem is that the part of the circuit that controls the backlight has failed. This is usually caused by capacitors that have gone bad or transistors that have shorted.

No power with 700P LCD monitor, No green light, nothing. replaced 2 popped 470 25C caps. Nothing else looks bad. Board 860-ALZ-M713-F

You will need to check for any pico fuses that run along those capacitor lines they may be marked as pf or nf on the pcb

Screen goes black after a few seconds.

when the screen goes black shine a flashlight on it. If you see a dim image the back light needs to be replaced. Otherwise check the inverter as that may be causing the problem as well.

there is some issue with the power board internal to the monitor maybe capacitors, maybe transistors, that is the best i can do with your info.

Mag Innovision LT776s Model 780

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Does a bad power supply look like this?

i suggest that you buy a new monitor coz your current monitor is too old...there's some electric component is weaken...its better to buy new than to repair the old one..
