20 Most Recent Proview PL926WBi 19" LCD Monitor Questions & Answers

I know it's an older post, but you still may be waiting an answer:
What is probably happening is Your power board is failing to maintain power enough to run the bulbs and the rest.
That is why it takes long to start up and why it goes into sleep mode.
Does the power button stay lit (getting signal) or turn to amber (sleep mode) or does it flash.

Try disconnecting the monitor from your computer and checking the pins in the connector to see if any of them are bent or flat. If they are, try to straighten them if possible and that may resolve your problem. Otherwise try resetting your monitor, if it has it as an option in it's configuration menu to do so.

unsoldering is the only way to UN-mount capacitors the board needs to be out of the casing. a solder iron and some electronic solder wire can be bought at radio shack or any other electronics store.
procedures are all over the internet

How have you connected the monitor to the computer?
Is it through the vga or the dvi port?
Pls press the monitor menu button and change the mode to vga or dvi depending on the connection that you have now.
You might also get a vga to dvi adapter and connect the monitor to the computer.

Sounds like the power-inverter board is due for an overhaul.
Eventually it won't turn on at all.
I do redo many of these.

Any monitor will work with any computer provided the correct graphics card driver is installed. When you install Vista and you do not install the graphics driver, Windows will default to Generic VGA driver and you will not get the best resolution that the monitor can display.

Remove the four bezel screws on the bottom edge of the monitor. Gently pry up where you removed the screws and slide the bezel off towards the top of the monitor. The six mounting screws for the lcd panel will be visible. Remove them and inplug the lcd cables and set it aside. You now have access to the main circuits.

You can not degauss a LCD monitor.

Degaussing is to reallign the magnetic field on a CRT. An lcd has no such field.


The last time I heard of someone wanting a Degauss for an LCD, it was because there kid took a magnet to there LCD monitor. This will destroy the TFT pixels.

Pink tink = bad LCD Inverter (aka backlight) thats what you will need to replace :)

Proview PL926WBi... | Answered on Nov 11, 2014

Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 goes wrong: 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.

have a look at the board open up the monitor and remove the boards and you have to look for doomed or colored caps, they will be obvious compared to the good flat caps on the board. replacing these will most likely repair your issues.
