Question about KDS K717s 17" LCD Monitor
I have had it a bout a year now.i turned my computer off before bed.started it the next day the tower come on but nothing from the monitor.Ive plugged my old CRT monitor in and it work fine.when i plug the LCD monitor i get nothing.no light form the button or anything.any ideas?thanks.
This is a common problem across many monitors, unfortunately. The problem stems from one of two things, typically.
Itis either the Power Inverter board (Inverter Mirage Electronics AD-1700Rev:F 200-000-170DTL1 VERSION:A) or a weak or dying backlight.
Ifyour monitor comes on for a few seconds then you can test the backlight byusing the controls to get into the backlight brightnes settings on theOSD and turning it WAY down.
If that doesn't work or if it won't come on at all then it islikely bad capacitors on the Power board mentioned above. If you feeladventurous and know how to solder then you might be able to fix thisyourself. You need to be careful however because you are dealing withhigh voltage in there and capacitors CAN hold a charge long after youhave unplugged the unit. You can read more about this power board aswell as how to replace the bad caps HERE.
Ifthat's not for you then I would recommend taking it to a local TV shopfor them to fix. The parts shouldn't be more than $20, but labor can beexpensive.
