There's a couple capacitors you need to replace. On the video board, not the power supply board. There is (3) 470uf16v on the video board. They have to be the smaller ones, you can not use the larger ones (they will not sit flush onto the board) Any questions, e-mail me at Andrew@CreativeAudio.biz

When connect ps3 to monitor it turns on then goes black then on and off


If you try the monitor elsewhere and still does that, there are chances that the hight voltage work for few seconde then stop.

Most monitor experience this with age, I use to open the monitor and look for condenser that have the top carved, not flat anymore.

this mean that the condenser dry and made internal gaz.
Those should be all replaced. 2 time over 3 it does fix this issue.

then if you try you monitor on a computer and it does work correctly, then it would be the PS3 , I suggest trying to unplug the PS3 for a 30 sec then try rebooting it. (did happend to me once)

Vaio LCD problem


Periods.......Nice little items because they denote the End of a sentence.
See how this works?

"I have a vgn cs36gj, I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black, I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture, sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

Now you try it.........

"I have a vgn cs36gj. I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black.
I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture."

Okay, I got that part.........

"sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

WHICH LCD?
Laptop LCD?
External monitor LCD?
Man on the moon LCD?

1) If the external monitor LCD goes 'pale black', the problem is the graphics chipset.
This I do not believe

2) If the laptop LCD goes pale black, this I believe.

When turned on, monitor (LCD)shows desktop for +/-1-2 sec. and goes black


Have you tried this monitor on a different computer? If it happens on a different computer then most likely the monitor is defective.

coolvegasmik, Sorry, to hear that your "cold cathode-fluorescent-lamp-back-lit-lcd-monitor" is not working. Did you hold and point a bright flashlight 1 inch from the lcd panel when it went to "black-screen"??? Did you see any icons on the "black-screen"?? Software NOT a fix for this "black screen of death" problem. You or electronics technician will need to open L91A and look for bad capacitors or bad soldering on the power supply printed circuit board. If unit is 4 to 6yrs old, just trade-in for new wide screen unit. See video clips of swollen bad capacitors at YOUTUBE when you search "lcd monitor repair". All lcd monitors (99%) use same basic design and principle of operation. Sometimes ccfl back-lit lcd monitors can be repaired for less than $6 in parts and monitor will work for 1 to 3 more years. 12fixlouie

Gateway 22 inch LCD monitor suddenly goes black...blue on light works but pic only stays on for 3 secs when computer is turned on.


Your inverter or backlight need to be replaced those are the main components that light up the display.

If you find this helpful please rate so.

Thanks

Screen only stays on for 1 sec


Assuming you changed all the caps and did it correctly.
IF you get flickering, It could be a transistor on the inverter board.
OR !!! and probably more likely,
It could be one of the bulbs in the lcd itself is failing. It only takes one bad bulb to stop an inverter from firing up !! You can check them one at a time if you have another working monitor.
If you do unplug a good bulb from the good monitor and try each of the questionable ones, one at a time.
Doesn't have to be a gateway monitor to test it, just needs the same backlight plug.
