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.

What do i check when my 06 express wont start

Try the main fuses. I went through this with my car. After spending money on a new battery I didnt need and a new starter I didn't need I found it was a $2 fuse.

All of a sudden my 2233rz stopped powering on. Screen just went black midway through browsing...checked the kettle lead, it's fine. All cables are fine. Any suggestions?

Hi Kevin,

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at

My first advice is to ensure that your AC source(outlet) is live. Try to plug it in to a known working outlet to confirm that the power source is not the issue. If you are using a surge protector/AVR, try to directly plug the monitor's plug to the outlet.

If you confirmed that the AC source is not the problem, then this is an indication that the fault is inside the unit. You have to check first the power supply board's fuse. Check its continuity, if it has a continuity, then the fault is on the voltage regulator circuitry and/or other circuitry on this board, I would advice you to replaced the entire power supply board. Click it here for the replacement.

If you found it open, you have to replaced it with same current(ampere) ratings and then try to power on the unit again. You are lucky if the replacement fuse resolve the issue. Sometimes fuse fail due to voltage surge/flactuation, aging however if the new fuse didn't resolve the issue, then you have to replaced the entire power supply board.

Also, check if your unit is under warranty period, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free. Opening the rear cover will void the warranty.

Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Good luck and take care!

Kind Regards,

Monitor blinking on and off. I had this problem once before with this same monitor. When you went from the screensaver to the desktop it would flicker back and forth between the image and the black. After...

Please read below if you decide to DIY:
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 SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My monitor 940n samsung syncmaster gone in black...

I have just had this same problem. The problem mostlikely is a blown fuse on the inverter board. Mine was blown on the board and also a Capacitor (470nF/25V) was bad beside the Fuse.

I replaced both and monitor is working now again. After install the picture was a little grainy with little artifacts. In another post i found that the Power Supply board needs to be cleaned for unwanted residue. After that picture was fine again.

BEWARE that you need a soldering iron and a steady hand to replace these parts. If you are unfamiliar with soldering at all have an expert take a look at this. The Power boards uses 220v so DO NOT connect it to the Power when opened.

Screen went black

Swap monitor connections to determine if one of the monitors is not working.
If one is not working you probably have an internal problem. If power led responds to the off-on button but no picture is seen, the inverter has likely blown a fuse. Replace the fuse and resolder the leads on all 6 inverter transformers or the fuse might blow again.

The way the circuit works is in a mirror format. There are 2 identical circuits that go to each end of the board.

Be sure to check that fuse for continuity, not just for a second like you normally would, but hold it for a good 10 seconds.
Also don't forget while you are in there it's best to repolace it anyway with an actual fuse. A 3A slow blow ceramic is good for this.
Check the 4 transformers as well, if you notice the top circuit is the faulty one, then check the transformers at the top. The transistors are quite powerful, and normally need something to trigger them into failing. Do the same for the bottom circuit.

This monitor came in 2 formats. One with 4 transformers and 4 CCFL tubes, one with 2 transformers that lead to 2 CCFL connectors powering 2 tubes each (3 wires per CCFL)

When you order the 2SC5707's get extras just to be on the safe side. If it goes again, then turn the monitor off immediatly and check them. It should only be 1 failed again, so just see which of the 2 transformers it was primarily attached to and replace it, or both.
