Dropped lcd monitor

I just bought an lcd monitor on e-bay, (15 inch synco brand i think), while getting ready to put it on the desk, i knocked it onto the floor, power light lights to green and quickly changes to orange, i can very faintly make out that box that pops up concernoning menu or something, is there any hope of me fixing this?, could it be just a backlight? any help would be appreciated

Recently the computer monitor started automatically showing the menu. I am not sure why this keeps happening. I have checked the menu button on the monitor to see if it was stuck and it seems to be fine. It just keeps coming back. Is the monitor getting ready to go out? Can it be fixed?

Very often the problem is that when an LCD monitor is dropped, the ribbon cable and power cables which have very little slack become partially unconnected from the ports they plug into. Unplug the monitor, remove the back casing, and have a look to make sure the ribbon and power cables are seated properly. If in doubt, reseat them by hand.

Good luck...

It is broken. Replace it.

If you look online for a "previously-owned" 15-inch LCD monitor, expect to pay $20 to $30.

If you go to any "big-box" electronics store, you can buy a 19-inch LCD monitor for under $100.

Either way, it's much less expensive to REPLACE it
than it would be for a professional TV/video technician to try to trouble-shoot and REPAIR it.

17" flat screen upper half is dark until "thumped"!


The inverter board that controls the lighting on the screen is dying. since its a 5 year old monitor and only a 17 inch. the cost to repair is greater than the cost of buying a new one. unless you know how to replace the part yourself. I think its best to just buy a new monitor

Monitor L17AMTN flashes WinXP desktop, then blanks.


dmellman, Before you open it up, try this! With fully booted pc and WIN DESKTOP screen up, reconnect the L17AMTN . Have a bright flashlight handy so that when the lcd screen flashes on for 1 second and then goes dark, you will want to check to see if the desktop remains on the screen even though you think it went away. Shine the light 1-2 inches from screen at different angles. Has the desk top completely disappeared or is it still being displayed? Do you know about Cold-Cathode-Fluorescent tubes and their Inverter type power supply? I assume that this unit also has a "lay on floor black box switch-mode-power-supply" that is supposed to supply raw 12v-14v dc to the monitor? This symptom is typical of lcd monitor power supply failure, and or inverter board failure. Not to mention the fact that the CCFT's could be a bit tired from use. YOUTUBE has some videos on taking apart lcd monitors. also do search on web for "bad caps on lcd boards" or "bad caps in lcd monitors". I should think that this Tatung might suffer from swollen cap-itis. get back to me with results of your investigation. Im louie12fix on fixya or [email protected] just nrth of Windy City

Dell 15 inch lcd monitor issue


The first thing you should do is change the monitor for another known working monitor to make sure it is the monitor that is faulty and not the video output of your computer.
