Question about Amptron POLYVIEW 19" Monitor

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Polyview V293 LCD Monitor with a power supply output of 19v 3.42A. The power supply has failed. Most i have found being offered as direct replacement for this monitor have an output of 19v 3.16A. I haven't found a 3.42A model quoted for the Polyview V293. Will the 3.16A work ok without any dangers of fire or the like. Note i reside in Australia using 240v +,-, mains power. Thank you.

If the power adapter is a separate from the monitor then check the monitor's label on the back of the screen for the power rating.If the rating on the label is greater than 3.16A then I would not purchase this adapter.
I suggest you purchase an adapter with a current rating greater than what is stated on the monitor's label.
Check out this WEB site for power adapters - a 19Volt 90 watt = 4.7A power supply is suitable.

Would a 19v 3.16a power supply suits a lcd monitor 19v 2.6?


Yep, that should do very well. The voltage (19V) is critical - that should match exactly. The current (3.16A, 2.6A) isn't so critical, but the power supply MUST supply AT LEAST as much current as the monitor requires. The extra current capacity won't hurt anything at all, it just won't get used for anything.

A Polyview V293 monitor suddenly stopped working and fails to show any activity at all. There was no trauma at the time. Is this likely to be able to be repaired? Bruce Jones, Australia


Well, common failure in the LCD monitor after a couple years are due to failed DC filter caps in the power supply as you can see in my albums.
If you are going to DIY 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 monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Runs about $30.00. You might be able to find a cheaper one thru searching but at least you know that they are out there.

Same as before this sounds very similar to the problem that I had with my polyview v396 19" . Its a power supply problem unclip the panel withdraw the power supply it plugs in on its own seperate board. Look for capacitors that bulge and replace them in fact replace them all on tha board not that hard. Replace them with the same rating voltage and micro fards. Cheaper than relacing the whole panel, hope this helps. :)

No sound


if your monitor has speakers, and it should  built in; then you will see a separate lead with  green plug on the end of it which is to be located in the rear of your pc with the green marked socket.

 

If theres no lead, then there must be a connector on the rear of the monitor
