Question about HP L1906 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I fixed my broken HP L1906! Couple new capacitors in power supply board and it could be powered up. Green led (for power) is on, monitor begin to circle 18 times - red, blue, green white horizontal stripes; all black; all grey; all white. Then led turned yellow and monitor turned black. Looks like problems with "main" board, but it has power 5V. May be somebody knows what does it mean all this firework?

SCREEN DAY.
BUT NO PHOTO POSTED, worth 1000 words each,
can be lots of things ,
bad power supply, something shorted. caps but in backwards.
+ to + and - to - works only. or the short. every time.
there is no schematic,
leaving what?, guessing ? and buying used parts on ebay
expensive to do that.
i presume the OSD button is dead ,right?

the power button tells you its a hard failure, it did.

The L19xxxx has CCFL back lamps, most did.
so seems they work ok , to see color takes that working.
but power is first ,that mean not just 5v.

HP L1906 picture does not re-appear immediatly, after being away from it for a while. The green light flashes for about 2 min before the screen re-appears.


It may have dying power supply due to bad DC filter caps just like the HP as shown in my albums.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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

No power (led off)


Check the main AC fuse, DC filter caps (more likely to be the problem).

Monitor won't power on.


When you say that the monitor finally powered on, it's hard to tell if that means it came on and produced a picture. If it powered on and produced a picture, it's likely either a power supply problem (meaning a device inside the monitor called a power supply) or a physical connection problem (meaning the power's not making it from the cord to the monitor itself).

Often times the internal power supply feeds an internal motherboard which then regulates the power which lights the LED. Failure of the LED to come on typically suggests a problem with the internal power supply. And this is usually the result of one or more blown capacitors.

In your case this seems especially likely because capacitors, by definition, store a charge. When you left the monitor unplugged for a while, one or more "failing" capacitors likely discharged and, after being powered up for a while, took on enough of a replenished charge to do their job. Since they were already on the very edge of functionality, however, putting the monitor through this same set of stressors a second time probably killed them for good.

If you can SAFELY get into the monitor for a look at the power supply board, you'll likely identify one or more bulging capacitors (usually cylindrical capacitors that now have a convex head instead of a flat one). If you can SAFELY remove them and properly replace them according to their individual specs on capacitance and voltage, (being mindful also of polarity), you'll probably rescue your monitor.

If however, when your monitor finally powered up for the last time you failed to get a picture, this begins to suggest of failure at the motherboard level. In that case, you'd be best to look toward acquiring a new monitor since you'd spend nearly as much toward repairs on this one.

Good luck.

HP L1906 lcd monitors won't display anything


Yes you got badcaps!!! www.badcaps.net examples of what they are and what they can do and this is one of them. U/You can change out these caps and see if it fires back up again.

Even bulging caps are still issues I just fixed a emac with bulging caps as the emac would freeze not when i put in the new caps the ****** is doing great!!!! I would suggest you do the same.

No picture,led blinking yellow and blue


Its noting to do with capaitors the EEPROM has been corrupted not sure how this happens as the write protect for the eeprom is under the control of the cpu and not hard wired.
I have repaired three of these monitors all with the same fault no components were required just the eeprom re flashed.
The EEPROMs are very cheap so I will buy a few and pre programm them for others wishing to repair there own monitors.

Screen going black, green LED staying on


Check to see if the image is Dimmed. Chances are the power supply on the FPD is either dead or not supplying power to the back lights.
Your problem is the power supply or the inverter on your board, you can replace it and it will be fixed.
Easy Fix REALLY EASY FIX
(inverter is what supplies power to your backlights. A lot of the times the reason a monitor goes black and the green power button is on, is because the backlights shut off. in most designs of the 1730 the inverter is embedded on the power supply. That is most often the case on this problem. Power supply/Inverter=Replace it and you will have a spanking new looking nice monitor working again. :)

The monitor will not power on.


Lucky you - You bought an L1906 Monitor from HP and one day all of a sudden, the Green Power LED just didn't turn on anymore. The Monitor appears to be dead!

Why?

Well I suspect it is because HP decided to save a few pennies by buying "second tier" electrolytic capacitors. You can read all about them on wikipedia, just look for "capacitor plague". In your monitor, several of them have burst, or are about to, and they have vomited the contents of their stomachs onto the PCB of your power converter. Mmmmm - yummy.


Not to worry. (A) For a "nominal" fee, the good folks at HP will gladly swap your monitor out for a replacement unit( with a few minor scratches).

Or (B) you can follow these handy steps to fix it yourself, while flipping HP a collective "bird", now and forevermore.

Personally, I went with option B.

Option B:

1) Face HP world headquarters and extend the middle finger of your right hand in salute, while uttering the words "BITE ME!" with menacing conviction.
2) Remove the power from your monitor and allow it to sit overnight so that all capacitors can discharge, thus making it safe to work on.

WEAR SAFETY GLASSES FOR THESE NEXT STEPS

3) Insert a very small flat bladed screwdriver in the gap between the silver front bezel and the black plastic back (do this at the bottom of the monitor so if you scratch the bezel it will be less noticeable.)
4) Gently push the black plastic inwards which will deflect the black plastic retaining tabs inwards, and will release the silver bezel.
5) Once you have the bottom off, work up the sides and release the top. The remove the bezel completely. Then unscrew the ON/OFF + Menu Button panel and move it aside being careful not damage the wires that attach it to the unit
6) Place the monitor face down on a towel (or other soft surface, for example a scantily clad super-model will also work)
7) Gently compress the top cap of the tilt stand to disengage the locking tabs that hold it on, and remove it revealing the "third screw" of the tilt mount. (I had to use a lot of 4-letter words to find this, your mileage should be considerably superior)
8) Unscrew the three screws holding the tilt stand to the monitor back and remove the tilt stand. These screws have loctite, so use a good screwdriver and press hard. If using a super-model, she should be squealing with each torque thrust.
9) Remove all 8 screws on the rear panel - 4 One in each corner, and four more on each corner of the raised section in the center of the monitor.
10) Remove the back cover
11) Remove the two screws on either side of the AC power receptacle and the 4 wires that plug into the monitor chassis, noting the order in which they are connected.
12) Remove the 4 screws that hold the LCD panel to the chassis
13) Gently remove the panel enough to get access to the power board, being careful not to damage any wires or their connection points.
14) Remove the 4 power board mounting screws, note that one is different, and remove the power board.
15) Remove all defective electrolytics (especially 5V 1000uF near the +5V outputs). The defective ones are bulged or have burst.
16) Mutter expletives under you breath. If young children are present, alternate "Darn!" and "Fudge!"
17) Clean off the HCl residue left by the burst electrolytic using board wash or 99% ISOPROPYL.
18) Replace the defective electrolytic capacitors. In fact, just replace all of them, that way this will be your final repair on this POS.
19) Suppress your anger.
20) Re-assemble and test.

Please post your repair experience on this thread. If you have any sentiments that you would like to express to HP, please use this forum as a place to indulge in an immersive catharsis. Feel free to vent from the orifice of your preference.

The capacitors did.

This is a generic symptom that could happen to any LCD monitor.
The following is a generic answer applicable to most.

The most possible causes are bad capacitors or a bad semi-conductor.

Open the unit and check to see if any of the capacitors in the power supply or other boards look domed or vented on the top.

Replace any capacitors accordingly. Use the same value capacitors. Most often, 1000uF 16V or 25V, 470uF at 16 or 25V, 220uF at 16V or 25V.

If this doesn’t solve the problem, try checking the surface-mount transistors on the inverter board that run the lights. Some times these transistors go bad and can cause the power to cycle up and down. Check the area for any cracked or overheated ceramic or mylar capacitors.

Don’t forget to check for caps on the main board. Some times these boards are overly simple and only have a couple of caps, but other times they are teaming with them.

Blinking Light


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
This is the same problem with my 4 VG800 Monitors, you should be able to find the correct capacitor on your monitors by following the same procedure, I'm sure the boards are similar. Just get the correct value capacitor and try it in parallel with the initial filter capacitors right after the DC power in.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Alright, I had 4 VG800 monitors with the exact same problem. The front led is blinky OR constant reddish/orangish OR picture is white with colored vertical lines OR no picture with whistling from the back of the monitor and backlights illuminated. All problems have the same solution. You need to disassemble the monitor (2 screws on the back, remove lower front button panel, remove 2 screws holding panel in and remove speakers, then remove panel and unplug speakers. Now remove lots of tape and screws from the cover in the center of the monitor). Now that you've exposed the amplifier board and the VGA to LVDS board, you want to look for the pair of 25V 100microfarad capacitors that are nearby the DC power in (they are right next to the black "100" inductor). Desolder the capacitor farthest from the DC jack and replace with an electrolytic with the same specifications. If you want to check that this is the correct solution please put the new capacitor (WATCH THE POLARITY) in parallel with the capacitor there want watch the front panel indicator go green and the monitor work properly.

I'll be posting and Instructable entry in the next few days on the process, watch for the username Waterppk on the website www.instructables.com

It appears either the inverter supply board or the main video board have failed. First replace the inverter board, if not fixed, replace the video board. Mike
