Question about IBM ThinkVision L170 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

IBM Think Vision L170 Monitors. I have a couple with the same issue. Power them on, and the IBM logo flashes for a second, then a blank screen. The indicator LED is green. Powering off/on doesnt help. Dropping and adding the screen in Windows doesnt help. One screen will sometimes come good if I try off/on many times. But only some days. The other screen never comes good. A local techo at work said they were no good, and to replace them, but I wanted to try something if it was possible.

skeltonh, Have you connected your L170 to a different "known-good" PC that has ALL power-save and screen saver modes disabled? Have you connected an old monitor to your PC to see if it will act same way as the L170? 12fixlouie

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.

Blank Screen


Any bulged capacitor is a failed capacitor. The nice-looking ones next to the bulged ones have failed too since they are in the same circuit.
The real fix is to replace ALL the Electrolytic capacitors. You can use ones with slightly higher voltage ratings without problems provided that they will fit.You can use two 470's to replace a 1000 provided you can fit them in.
There may also be a 47mf/25 volt cap off to itself. Replace it too, if it fails, the unit will just not come on at all.

Monitor wont turn on, green power light on


Hi you can inspect that what's wrong with your monitors. After you turned it on and the screen went black, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

Monitors video and power blinks on and off


Yet another case of bad capacitors on the power board.
These monitors are well known for this issue, but they live a long time past when they should.
Easy repair, but if your not confident around electronics drop it to your local TV repair shop.

Hope it helps =)
