    I have the same problem and its not the caps.

    Has anyone fixed this item yet?

  • Brian Canute May 11, 2010

    by what you are describing it is not powering correctley please try alternative monitor to confirm video signal if you can if you get signal then your power supply in the monitor is a switched mode supply (normal) and part of this has failed. yes it is possibly fixable depending on how much you would like to spend without seeing it could not tell you, kep me informed

I just repaired my LCM 19W4. My symptoms were a little different; the light was not on or blinking like yours. I replaced two bad capacitors today (220 uF 25V High Temp) So far so good. Bad caps can be easy to identify; they are slightly bulging at the top. Soldering can be very tricky though. But just like plodder said, make sure it's the monitor that's bad and not something else by hooking up a known working monitor first.

It's mostly likely a bad capacitor in the main power supply of your monitor. If you're brave enough to dismantle it, look for capacitors that're "crowned", and sometimes even rupture from overheating in such circumstances. You can order replacements from Digi-Key if you can figure out which might be your problem, but I'm not sure I recommend you try this unless you have at least SOME soldering/desoldering skills or a friend who does. You COULD wind up worse off. It's up to you, only YOU know your personal skill level for such tasks. And do I need to say, UNPLUG it before dismantiling? :)

My monitor Westinghouse Mod# LCM-19v5


Hello,

The most common thing that causes no power or a blinking power light and no picture is a failure of the power supply board. The board can be repaired and the monitor will be as good as new. To repair the board you just need to replace a few parts called capacitors. Here is a link to repair information on the Westinghouse LCM-19V5

Lcd-17v8 monitor power won't stay on. westinghouse monitor


If the monitor turns on and goes directly to sleep, or it powers on briefly and shows an image then goes black then the monitor is defective. The first is often an I/O panel issue inside of the monitor. The second is typically a lamp failure within the monitor.
A simple test would be to plug a different monitor into your computer or this monitor into another computer. If the monitor doesn't work on another computer or a different monitor works on the same computer then the monitor is the issue.
If the different monitor does not work on the same computer or this monitor does work on a different computer then something on the computer is to be suspected such as a driver issue or a faulty video card.
If you find the monitor is defective then you should dispose of it (assuming it is not under warranty) at a nearby recycling center and purchase a new monitor. I would suggest something by Acer, Samsung, Dell, HP, NEC, or Viewsonic. These brands cost a bit more, but have much better track records.

My lcd monitor model lcm-19w4 i have to plug and unplug the monitor a few times for it to go on help


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.

My lcd monitor model lcm-19w4 i have to plug and unplug the monitor a few times for it to go on help


Hello,

This is a classic symptom of a failing power supply. There are parts called capacitors in the power board that will start failing and not filtering the power correctly. The regulators on the power board will not work until the power is filtered correctly and when you keep powering it on and off it fill finally start and run until you power it off, then you have to start over again. We have a step by step repair guide posted in an article on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/repairing-the-westinghouse-lcm-20v5/ This model is a little different from yours but the power supply parts are the same. If you have any additional questions just ask.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Westinghouse LCM-19w4 has power, but blank screen


refer to an earlier post about similar problems. Does it power up and then shut itself off. this is possibly due to two defective capacitors. 27 cents on line $1.50 at radio shack. They will be puffy on top. I am a complete novice to soldering a capacitor onto a board. but since I was junking the monitor otherwise I gave it a try. It's still working after sitting idle a year. Handy advice on soldering online. use copper wire to **** up the old solder and try not to fry the capacitors or the board. If I did it anyone can.

You either have a hardware problem with your video card. ( may have pop out of socket when you plug in the monitor) or the cable is not allow communication to the monitor. As long as the amber light comes on you know you have power so focud on data cables and hardware.

Westinghouse LCM-19W4


I had the same problem with my two LCM-19W4 monitors. Both failed within two months of each other. Radio Shack stocks 220uF 35V capacitors that work fine for this. You have to pay $1.49 ea though.

Westinghouse monitor model lcm 19w4. Screen keeps going black and you have to turn it off then back on to get screen back. Sometimes screen will work properly for hours, but sometimes keeps happening...


This looks like a power supply problem, due to internal
over heating. When it cools down, the power supply turns
back on, or an "over current/ thermal" protection circuit
trips. Shutting of the monitor off resets it, and then it trips
again.

I had an old Samsung 19" with an identical problem.
(see my other post)

Mine was caused by a leaky capacitor, but every
monitor is different. (I have considerable knowledge of
electronics, as well as a degree in engineering, so
I was able to fix it, but I would not recommend this to
a non-tech person.)

The 19w4 seems to be a fairly new wide format monitor,
probably still under warranty. I would take it back to the
store on a busy Saturday afternoon and scream blue
murder.

There is absolutely nothing you could have done to cause
this problem, nor is it normal wear and tare.

It is the result of sub-standard manufacture, and you have
every reason to take it back. Your case is stronger if
you don't try to open it.

Good luck, Martin.
