The entire Thinkvision series of monitors have been plagued by capacitors on the power supply board failing.
This sounds worse then it is. For the most part they only fail well after their warranty period, so it's not a design flaw, just old age.

The repair should not cost alot and would be worth a trip to your local computer/TV repair man.

Hope that helps =)

My picture starts flashing like theres a short or somethings getting hot and causeing the picture to flash


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

IBM monitor out of range


Change your resolution to something lower. Sounds like your video card is overdriving your monitor. Reset your resolution to 800 x 600. If that works ok, you can push it a little higher.

Picture stopped working


Important thing here is when it flashes red---it should be a specific number of blinks---that is a error code.

Confirm model number and if possible the blink code.

Ge E850 will not take picture if flash is on. The flash icon will just blink. Will take picture if turn off flash.


If the flash cannot get a full charge, it will blink and prevent a picture from being taken. check your batteries.

I have IBM Thinkvision L150, 15". when computer is started green light is lighting but LCD couldn't display and it looks blank or black. Ok.


If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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.
Not sure about spending any money on 15" monitor.

17 lcd l170 black screen power on but no display


When powered-on, and *NOT* connected to a computer, most ThinkVision LCD monitors will flash, for a few seconds, the IBM ThinkVision "logo", before going into "power-saving" mode. If you don't see that, then it's time to spend about $120, and buy a new 19" (not 17") LCD monitor.

Most likely this is a shutter problem. If you are using flash and getting the half pictures, then make sure the flash is a canon compatible flash and the synch is set to 60th. If the problem is all the time including non-flash pictures, then the shutter will have to be repaired.
