Dead LCD Monitor

Hi Experts

I have a 17 inch LCD Ingram Micro Monitor. I went to turn it on and there isseems to be no power. Checked the power supply unit and that is ok, checked the power supply leads for any possible breakages they are ok.

Can you give any answer ?, One hunch I have is that it could be the inverter if so how would I get hold of one?

Many thanks

    I am not familiar with this particular unit so I will ask a few more questions:

    1. Is it mains powered or does it run from a transformer?

    2. Is there a power light on the front at all?

    3. Is there a seperate power switch on the back?

    If it's the inverter then you will still get power to the monitor and so will still have a power light. If you can also take a photo of the power board that will help a lot.

Check if there is power voltage in the collector pin of the horizontal transistor. If there is voltage your power supply is good in the problem maybe is the high voltage section. but if there is no voltage i think your primary power supply circuit have a problem. Try to open the pin of the plyback connected to collector of horizontal B+ and open the computer . if the light indicator on the problem is maybe the plyback or the horinzontal section

Sounds like your monitor is going dead. If its under warranty that would be the best way to go. Specifically it sounds like the power inverter is dead or there is a busted capacitor.

Dell E173FP 17 monitor went dark and not working. I restart the pc it shows for only few second and went out again. I plug in one other monitor in my pc and it work fairly well. So something not right with...


There are three possible cause why your monitor went black and start working..

1. If your monitor is dead set.. no reaction or lights turn on after power on.. then it needs to check if there is blown capacitor in its power supply section..

2. The high voltage ballast transformer of the backlight inverter is burned - it needs to be replaced so that it will not have a direct effect on the power supply section of the monitor.

3. The backlight inverters are all busted - the backlight was located at the upper and lower back edge of the monitor.. If these lights are busted then all that will be seen in your monitor is black screen.. It will need to be replaced so that image display will come out from your screen..

These 3 reason and its solutions can only be done by yourself if you have the knowledge, proper skills and the right tools to open the back cover of the monitor and replace the problem parts....

Otherwise, bring your monitor to a credible technician and if there is warranty,, avail of this...

Hope that answer your question..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

This could be either down to an internal fuse blown or the main board or the capacitor on the power supply could be faulty.
