Question about LG Flatron L1710S 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Dead as a dodo.

When I power up the unit, the power switch illuminates (green) but nothing else. I've checked the (two) pcb's for obvious signs of damage but theye are pristine in appearance, all tracks in tact and no obvious signs of heat damage..

Does anyone have a service manual for this item, or perhaps details of voltage checks I can perform?

    Further to my original "Dead as a Dodo", I can't help negatively commenting on LG. I've been to their website and WASTED over an hour trying to actually locate someone to get information - don't bother you'll (like me) end up going around in circles and get absolutely nowhere - it's obvious they don't want to talk to you!

    In addition (I'm sure) that the LG service manuals have been produced to raise the blood pressure of any engineer trying to use same, E.g The Flatron 1710S (CL-42 chassis) I've been looking for, finally managed to download a service manual for same which turned out to be the LB700G-GD & GU and (guess what) power supplies are completely different - no surprise there! So manages to get hold of the 1710B (same CL-42 chassis) which (as it turns out) has the same power supply as installed within mine and guess what, NO SCHEMATIC for the power supply even though drawings exist for all the rest of the electronics - WHAT???

    I give up! How the heck are you supposed to service kit when the required information isn't available? For the amount of hassle I've had in just trying to get this (most basic) info, I've a good mind to throw this flaming monitor in the bin. What a waste of time - not impressed!

    Whew that's better - needed that!

I had to take my computer in for repair and turned the acer monitor off while the tower was gone. After plugging everything back in after repair, the monitor will not come on when you hit the power...

The first thing to check is , the Power, are ya sure it's plugged in OK, are ya sure that socket is working, try something else in that outlet to prove, check the power cord is pushed right in, Check ya on the right Video connector on the PC, make sure all conns are correct. Try the monitor on another base unit, try your base unit on another monitor. If all these are OK then ya Monitor has turned it's toes up sorry.

In my years of working on LCD's, your inverter (basically like a ballast in a flourscent lamp) is bad/going out. Crack open the case and look for a big pink and white wire going to a pcb (usually located under a shield) and remove it and check for puffed capacitors. If there are some change them and that usually fixes the problem. If there are no signs of anything wrong on the inverter, get the numbers off the pcb and google or ebay the numbers, usually youll find a replacement realitively fast.

On / Off switch problem

March 23 2007 This problem is now resolved and the monitor fixed and working. For reference - it was nothing to do with the ON/OFF switch at all. The Power Supply / Inverter PCB had two duff capacitors. These were replaced and BINGO - a working unit. For other reference - had absolutely NO assistance from any of the users of the various Forums I tried - NO suggestions - NO nothing. I remember my Grandfather once saying "You get nothing for nothing in this world lad" Not even advice - He was right.
