MONITOR Hello fellow tech. It's Abi again in regards to the RAD-5S Monitor, I forgot to tell you that I'm a tv repair technician. The reason that I asked for assistance is because I don't have the service manual for this unit and I was wondering if you had a repair tip for it. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello, I have a Kds Radius RAD-7C monitor and the original power supply is no longer working. I have a universal power supply with a range from 15 to 24 volt and 6 amp, my question is, can I use this for...

6A is OK, HIGHER CURRENT is OK but not higher voltage, the main key is that the pwoer supply MUST be REGULATED power supply. Does it say that on the universal power supply that you have?

Rad-5 LCD has no picture


This usually means the power board is not putting out the correct voltages to run the monitor correctly. The power board can be repaired if you can solder parts. Check out the pictures on our web site at: Now open the back of your monitor and check for parts that look like the blown capacitors in the pictures on our site. Replace any that you see and you should be back running again. The values you need to purchase will be marked on the sides of the bad ones that come out of your board, it will be marked like 220uf, 470uf, 1000uf etc and a voltage value. Be sure to order a high quality part not like from Radio Shack, also use a high temp replacement 105c marking. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repsir service for $35 plus return shipping. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

RAD-9p shuts off for no reason


It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

Which Operating System you are using? If it's related to OS, it can be solved. If it's related to monitor h/w, you need to get it repaired by some technician.

I have a KDS 780 Monitor and there is no picture shown anymore. Also the power light just flicker on and off. I tried calling Tech Support and was put on hold forever.. What might be the problem and how do...

It is possible that the AC adapter is bad on the monitor, several are fo sale on EBay. As for repairs, it is generally cheaper to replace this model than attempt a repair

best I can tell, the Rad 5S is out of warranty, and you appear to be having a problem with the image inverter.

#1 Try the monitor on another system and ensure that the issue is the monitor, and not the video card it is attached to as the point of failure.

#2 If the monitor appears to be failing, contact a local TV repair shop on a repair estimate. Likely answer is that you can buy a larger better monitor cheaper than you can get the one you have repaired, even if the parts cost is low, due to the bench fee/labot cost of repairs.

Here is one site I like for monitors:

LCD Screen problem

You have a failed inverter circuit. This is a very common fault with BenQ and other LCD monitors. I have seen more FP737 and FP731's and all their cousins in the last 2 years then I care to count.

You will be best to take it to a TV technician and have them do the repair. There are ways to fix it yourself, but the chances of success are not great without a decent amount of electronic knowledge.

Call several places and get approx quotes based on the inverter fault. A lot of TV techs will not work on LCD monitors and is another good reason to call around first.

One final thing, check the manufacture date on the back of the monitor, these normally come with a 3 year warranty and it will be either expired now, or very close to it. If it is still under warranty, then contact BenQ near you to facilitate the repairs.
