Question about Computer Monitors

1 Answer

I have two CTX monitors.

They power up and show the green power on light, then flicker and shut off. They go through many cycles of this. I've ordered the capacitors to replace on the entire PSU. what could be causing this? Also, is it the inverter problem (this is a different monitor) when I plug it in, it powers up, shows the self check, then the CCFL lights turn off? I dont hear any high squeals like my Princeton monitor.

I'd greatly appreciate your advice.

Thanks.

Well by ordering the caps replaced that is a start for the first one it should work like new when you get those replaced, second monitor it could still be a cap issue but you need to look and see if they are doomed if hey are popped then they need to be replaced, one of the reasons they shut down is variance in the power supplied to the ccfl if it variances too much the unit shuts the vga and thereby the ccfl unit off.
fyi you don't need all the caps replaced just the popped ones.

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 flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor needs replaced.

You don't have a short-circuit. That would have blown the protections or even the monitor. Refer to the manual, that flashing light may be a code that tells you the problem. I don't think the repair would be expensive...

Ctx pv 720 lcd monitor backlight drops post plus 30 seconds!


Hi...there,
The problems on the backlight inverter power supply. Open it up and check all the capacitors, it look like a tiny battery cap on the side had writing on it. (Example 1000uf 16v ) if you are lucky you can spot it right away...with a bulged on top of each caps. If not, just replaced all of the caps... Good luck!
