Question about BenQ FP91G (Black, Silver) 19 inch LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Blank LCD screen

I have a LCD screen that wont fire up. I believe the green light shows up that it is on but nothing on the screen. It is not the computer as I have another screen on there now and it works fine. I have had someone look at the screen and he has said in only comes on very faints, thought it might be a "globe". However, Im not sure LCD's have them. Is this common and/or worth getting fixed?

Hi,

The description "comes on very faint" is indicative that the backlight is not turning on. The backlight as the name implies provide the illumination of the rear panel of the LCD display. It is made on 1 or more CCF Lamps (cold cathode florescent lamps) and are powered by an inverter that provides the high frequency high voltage needed for the CCF lamps to work. Since the entire screen is dark and it is highly unlikely that both or all the lamps would go out at the same time, it would highly be likely that the inverter is the culprit being the common denominator to all the lamps.

Should you venture to perform a DIY (do-it-yourself) (with the necessary precautions and safety in mind), look for a board that would have small transformers and have connectors that leads to the CCFLs. They often go bad because of dried up/blistered capacitors, cold solder or a general failure in the electronics.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

try shining a light directly on the screen to see if youve got a backlight failure, if you have there will be an image on the screen but nothing lighting it from behind thus making it seem blank, if that is not the case id start with the vga cable and work from there

HP L1706- screen is blank when I switch on


First if you have a extra monitor try to plug it in and see if it works. If not then check your video card. or get into the computer and try and remove and reseat the memory. Sometimes by just doing that can solve the problems

MY VP930b has the same problem.
It takes a very long time (5-10 minutes) before it becomes normal.

Unplug the cable from your PC, if the monitor shows a test image, the monitor is fine and the problem is with your graphic card. If you dont see nothing on-screen after unpluging the cable from the PC, then the monitor in damaged. Send it to repair.

Blank Screen..Will not power off


Have you checked your video source to ensure that this isn't a problem with your PC or whatever you're displaying on it? Try using a different display and see what happens. Try putting this LCD on a different PC and see what happens. If indeed it is this screen then it could be something as simple as a loose cable. Start simple and work from there.

Blank Screen..Will not power off


The flash light test only works with lcd monitor as they have back lights. Double check the connections again, also, if you can borrow a monitor try it on your pc, it may be your graphics driver needs to be uninstalled and re-installed, but you will need a monitor to see.
