Problem I found the problem with my monitor it was the fuse so i replaced the fuse it came on and flashed then went off again so i checked the fuse and it was blown could this be a high voltage problem or something else

    I have checked all the 4 transistors the ones that are mounted on the heat sinks could not find a short on them there is one that has 4 legs not sure if im checking it right

  • Annette Jun 02, 2008

    The monitor is a Benq 17" model No. Q7T3 the markings on the transistors that are mounted to the heat sink are No 1 has four legs to it PO3RD23, No 2. YG902C2, No 3 is the same number as 2, No. 4 K9264 i will give you some more specifics on the problem was not working so i pulled the monitor apart and the backlights were not working checked all the transistors then one i just described thye came up with no shorts at all that I could find was the PF751 which i beleive is a 3 amp pico fuse MS 3A which was its markings found to be blown i put a replacement fuse in thinking that it may only be a fuse as i had checked most of the other components could not find anything with a short so plug the board back in hoping for the best what i got was the monitor come on for a split second showed the logo and then went off i went back and checked the fuse and it was blown check and replaced most of the caps hoping there was a faulty cap and i was still unable to locate any defent fault i decided to take a chance since i did not have much to lose and put a higher value fuse in place of the one that blew but this time fuse did not blow the backlinght and screen came back on for appros 2 - 3 seconds then shut down which i believe it has a safty shut down u can switch it on and it will do the same thing time and time again only for having the higher ampage fuse in it i believe it would be blowing the fuse maybe im having a punt here where it leads me to think there is a resistor gone high and allowing to much current in that part of the circuit thats a stab in the dark on my thoughts would be much appreciated if u can lead me in the direction that would solve the problem thanks Annette

There is no "Flyback transformer" in the LCD monitor "Benq 17" model No. Q7T3". Such a component, a "Flyback transformer" is found in televisions and in Picture Tube type monitors. The red wire of a "Flyback transformer" is where 27,000 VOLTS comes out of to connect to the picture and such a voltage IS DEADLY so never enter a TV or computer monitor unless you know exactly what you're doing. To bring your hand too close to the "Flyback transformer" is to GET ZAPPED, you don't even have to TOUCH that transformer or the Red Wire that comes out of it!!!!

As far as a fuse blowing, NEVER PUT IN A FUSE WITH A HIGHER AMPERAGE RATING: it's there to protect certain components from being permanently damaged. If the fuse is blowing you must find out "why". There's got to be a short circuit in one or more components. Transistors, Diodes and Capacitors are easy to check for shorts. Transistors, Diodes are usually what short out. There's not much more I can say here.

A schematic diagram that shows the voltage on the many components of a running LCD circuit is what you need to find out where volatges should be. If a voltage is missing you must find out where the problem stems from. There are other ways to test circuitry, with an oscillascope and a schematic diagram that shows test points and the wave pattern that's suppose to be present.

Most likely the horizontal output transistor that has shorted. This will be a large transistor attached to a heat sink close to the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top). Post hte marking here and I'll give you the full part number.

    List the markings on the four transistors here as well as the make and model of the monitor and I'll try to post specifics.

Computer will not turn on....how do I check to see if power supply is faulty? I have power supply removed and have a tester to check for dc voltage etc


I just went through a heap of troubleshooting with power supply issues before swapping psu's and finding this was the solution to my problem. Had a closer look at my psu that was faulty, the green light was flashing on the psu, unplugged all components and thought that I now had a non-flashing green light on my psu, on closer inspection the light was actually flashing very fast so appeared to be an almost solid light...the psu was stuffed so replaced it and no more issues. If your power supply has a green light check to see if it is flashing when plugged into voltage with nothing connected to it. If it is a solid light then it is probably ok.

My Viewsonic monitor flashs but noscreen display. Is this the power supply


If the light (yellow or pink) is flashing, your monitor is well. It's your CPU that is not giving a video signal to your monitor. Try to reset and notice if your CPU beeps. If it doesn't beep, then there is something wrong with the CPU... or the CPU's speaker.

Computer doesn't switch on!


The troubleshooting techniques you might try is swapping them out with another monitor and keyboard. If they work then you know its the monitor and keyboard if they don't work then the motherboard is bad. The ports for the keyboard and monitor are integrated into the motherboard. So you can't fix the ports, the whole motherboard has to be replaced.

Gateway 500x Power Problem


First Thing I would suggest doing is to have an Electrician come and check out the Circuit(s) in your housr that were blowing fuses. As this is likely due to power surges and/or short circuits, and thats likely to be a fire hazzard. Not to mention that it could just as easily damage any repairs you make to your PC.

After you know your electrical lines are OK then we can start on your PC.
There are several components in your PC that are easily damaged by power surges. I will list them in order of their likelyhood to have been damaged, any one or even all of them MAY have been damaged.

Power Supply Unit
Motherboard
CPU (Processor)
Video Card
Ram modules

You could try replacing them one at a time Until you finally get the right ones replaced, but it might be more cost effective to take it to a certified repair facility for Gateway (Best Buy, and Circuit City are both good choices in the US)

I would have them give you an estimate before they do any repairs because if many or ALL of these components were damaged, it might be cheaper to buy a new PC.

Hope this helps
Dave

Power Supply


Check all power cables plugged into M/board if these are correct
remove all hard ware
hard drives / cd player and anything else
except for video and memory and test to see if it boots. If it does, one of the removed hardware is faulty if it does not then you have M/board failure

Flashing Green Light on Power BESTEC Power Supply


This is an easy fix so here you go nice and simple:

Problem: Your motherboard circuit has been cut.

Causes: Power disconnected during operation. Power outage or short in the surge protector.

Symptoms: Flashing green light on both motherboard and power supply. System will not power on.

Solution:

Step 1: Ensure that both the power supply and the motherboard lights are flashing green, not solid or off.
Step 2: While the power is on, disconnect the power supply from the motherboard. This connection is the largest of the connections and should be listed as the 'P1' or 'Primary' power connection.

Step 3: Wait until the green light on the motherboard stops flashing and check to ensure that the green light on the power supply is now solid. If it is not solid, disconnect the power to the power supply and wait until the light turns off completely. Then reconnect, it should be solid now.

Step 4: While the power is on, reconnect the P1 connection to the motherboard and you should now see that the light on the motherboard is solid.

Step 5: Power on your PC. The problem should not persist.

Warnings: If the power supply light remains flashing after you have restored power to it while it is disconnected from the motherboard, it may be a system failure in the power supply itself requiring replacement. Always be careful when working with an active or live power machine.

I hope this helped! Good luck!

HPvs17e monitor will not power up


Hi the SMPS needs to be checked - some of the failure prone comps., Bridge Rectifier and Power Transistor check them after disconnecting power completely , the large electrolytic Cap., will hold charge even after disconnecting the power so be very careful. The substance around caps., is epoxy so as not to let them explode in the event of short circuit
