The inverter power supply goes bad all the time on that unit. Go to www.lcdrepair.us they have instruction videos on opening the monitor as well as sell parts for that unit.

My monitor Chimei CMV 946A gets 2 sec. picture but then went black. power still on


Excuse me but your descripton is not clear enough. Do you get ALWAYS 2 seconds of picture and then your monitor goes black or it went black after 2 seconds and you never more got a screen

In any case, ask help from a friend, letting you to connect your monitor to another computer. Would pinpoint problem and discard eventual video card issue.

My monitor dont work anymore but when i charge it ..the charge light light up...and when it fully charge it turn green but still dont come on.. no water in or i didnt drop it help me


probably back light is out. Look closely at screen and see if you can see a faint image on screen (hard to see if no light behind to shine though, so look close).

I have a panasonic pt-53wx54 picture went black with a view vertical color lines then they went and it's now just black. sound is good no picture.. what do i need to do? thanks so much


This is one of several models that had a common problem.

If set comes on with sound and you after a minute or two see a faint odd band of noise top to bottom on the screen to the right side C509 which is a .047 cap at 200 volts is bad.

Cap is seen in attached photo(location marked and cap here gone).

The cap when you locate it from the C509 number which is on top and bottom of board may have a crack or not---it is the cause of this problem.

There is a hard way and a easy way to get at it--let me know and I will explain.

There are several brown caps here and some plugs here are removed.

I would not try operation of the set in this condition too long.

Screen went black faint images


Hello,
If the screen went black and you can still see faint images of what your computer is currently showing, the typical issue would be a burnt out backlight. For the repair cost, I'd say just invest in a new monitor.
Just to cover the bases, make sure your brightness and contrast settings on the LCD are not set to zero.

I have a viewsonic LCD VX2235 and it just went black. It switches from the green light to amber light with no picture but you can see a faint flicker in the background. Please help


Look for bad caps with bulging tops as shown in my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Viewsonic%20VX2235W/
They should be replaced as a set (6 black cases, 2 brown cases). Use PANASONIC FM or F series from Digikey.
Please post back what you find.

Screen comes on then goes out in 5 seconds. The backlight goes dark but the seen is working, just can't see it. The backlight is out...


mark587, Did you shine a very bright flashlight 1" from the screen to try and see the WIN-desktop ?? Even though the screen appears BLACK. Your words above said: JUST CAN'T SEE IT Did you really NOT see anything? Have you seen any of the longer video clips of "LCD Monitor Disassembly" on YOUTUBE? Some BLACK screen "symptom" lcd displays can be repaired for less than $10 in parts. Capacitors! Also check videos on lcd repair. Then get back here to fixya and I or any of the guys can help you decide what to do with your display whoose screen is now dark and lifeless. After doing the YOUTUBE thing you may even tell us what you will do!!! Hope this was helpful. Yes we do want to hear back from you. please rate this response on fixya. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com. Bye for now.

Dell inspiron 5150 dark screen, faint image in background


If it showed a pinkish tint on the screen before it went out it could be the backlite. If you can see a faint screen when you turn the room lights out it chuld be the inverter. Inverters are cheap ... a used one for around $8 on ebay. Try that first. Make sure that you buy the EXACT model that is presently in your laptop.

It's all black


If you power it on, take a flashlight and shine it on the lcd at and angle and look real close to see if you can see a faint image. If you can, then your backlight in the screen is not working.
Also, you can attatch an external monitor to it, while its off, then power it on and see if it lights the external monitor. Try that and let me know your results.
If you get a picture ok on the external, and you can see a faint image on the lcd using a flashlight, then it could be the backlight inverter board or the bulb itself inside the lcd went out.
If you don't get any picture at all, using an external monitor and can't see a faint image on the lcd using a flashlight, then I would say there's other problems with the laptop itself. Could be a mainboard problem, power issue, etc..
