Question about Philips 190SW

2 Answers

My Philips 190SW was powered off for a week. When I powered it back up it fails to operate properly. It will show an image for about 1 second and then go black. Every time I power it off/on I get another 1 second image. What's wrong?

You have to take the moniter apart(the front popc off with clips and one philips screw in the back behind the stand..Remember where everything goes as you rip it apart and access the power supply..You will see a capacitor 1000uf 25 volts in the middle of the board.Chances if you look at it the top is puffed up and leaking..Pick up one for a buck or so and swap it out and you should be fine..I know this for I did it 20 mins ago and using it as I type this...Hope this helps

Hi worse, when you 'say' "Power-off?
Do you mean:
The computer was "Unplugged, from the [Wall Outlet?].
The Battery was in the Computer?
The "Battery wasn't 'recharged' for a {Week?}.
You 'plugged the computer in, with the battery in the computer?
If any of the 'answer' are {Yes}?
Then more than likely:
The "Battery in the computer has a (0% charged).
With the "Battery in the computer, may be draining the 'resouces' of the "AC Adapter."
The "CMOS Battery" {Is "Dead" The information than it held to "Boot the computer is lost!"}.
The computer cannot "Boot into the Operating System!"
Take the "Lithium Battery" out of the computer.
"Unplug the computer from the "Wall power-outlet"
Press the Power Button for [15-30 seconds].
Plug the computer, back in to the 'wall'.
Do not place the {battery in the computer}.
"Restart the computer."
See: "What happens?
If this didn't fix the 'problem'; then everything (Above = "True").
Worse case "Senario."
Replace the {CMOS Battery}.
"You will have to "Reinstall the Operating System!"
"I hope the computer boot!
!"Take a moment to rate the help."

Thanks paul7of9

You may have power supply or backlights inverter problem, or worst case will be the lamps.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed HP monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/

Monitor display shows for about 1 second then goes blank but the green light stays lit. If you turn it off and then on again it does the same thing.


Look for bas DC filter caps with leaking/bulging top/seals.
