Question about KDS K717s 17" LCD Monitor

KDS K717s LCD screen goes white

I'm not sure why but when the monitor is turned on, every pixel goes right to white.  I figure it's probably a short in a transistor, but i'm not sure which one it could be.  Any info would be greatly apreciated, and thank you ahead of time  :)

    My monitor worked fine for 3 years, then tonight it went all white. Doesn't matter what I do. I tried it on a different PC and got the same result (wasn't sure if it was the monitor at first). It alternates between off and all white during the boot, then settles on all white.

Most repair shops would start with replacing the controller board.

Kds K-92bw After about 5 min the screen goes blank..turning the unit off than back on the screen looks great for a while about 3 min than goes black..seems to be a caused by heat

This issue is most likely caused by a capasitor doing bad. There is no easy fix. It must be disembled and the power supply repaired. If done properly, it should cost somewhere between $ 50 to $125. But it may do it again as the Pwoer supply is a known issue for this monitor. Sorry.

Power supply filter caps will be he first thing to check, look for leaking/bulging tops.

Most common failures 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 to look for:

power converter/supply bad defect contact manufactuer and ask for warrenty replacement

When i turn on the monitor the screen goes all white

This is usually either a problem with the controller board or the actual LCD inside the display.

You should be able to find one of these monitors with a bad power board on eBay for cheap and just replace the guts of yours with the parts (minus the power board) from the 'new' one.

It would likely be better to just buy a new one if you are out of warranty.

Sorry about that.

most probably you have bad capacitors in the powersupply of the invertor board, check for bulged tops of the capacitors and replace them

The white screen tells me that the display cable (inside your monitor) may be unattached or broken.
The color bands if they are vertical or horizontal lines tell me that your display cable needs to be replaced.

So overall replace your display cable. If this doesn't entirely fix the problem your logic board (inside the monitor) needs to be replaced.

That have to do some servicing in the power section at the main board.
