Question about BenQ FP731 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Benq fp737 17

Hi,
I just bought 2 non working 17" lcd's for $10. I've challenged myself to fix them. I took them apart and one main board has a number of blown caps, the other looks fine. The one with blown caps would not power up, the other powers up but no picture whatsoever from vga, hadn't tested the dvi yet.

I took the video input board from the non powering one and put it in the powering one. I now can see the BENQ at startup very dimmly, but only with the dvi input. My first thought, the backlight. So I tried the screen from the other monitor in the now working chassis (LG PHILLIPS 170E01 A5 screens in both, btw). Same deal, saw the BENQ faintly but still all black.

I plan to replace the caps on the blown board and I may need a second input, although I will test the other one now that I know you can see the BENQ from the dvi input like that.

Do you think it's likely, given what I've described, that both backlights are out? or is it more likely that there's a power supply problem on my main board, if so, can anyone suggest how to test my backlights on their own and/or how to repair the board if that's the issue. I think I may start by replacing all the caps on both boards... thoughts?

Thanks,
Mike.

How old are the monitors?
Normally backlights last at least 30,000hrs of working.
Normally problems on Inverter board transistors near yellow inverter transformers.

Hi, I have this Challenger 2HP pump out on the bench but can not separate the pump housing and impeller from the motor. I've removed the 3/8 bolt from the center of the impeller. And the band is off...

Take a look at this picture:
http://www.poolcenter.com/parts_pumps_pacfab_challenger_highflow.htm
Make sure you remove the mounting screws item 15 (2 ea) and item 9 (4 ea)
There are also 3 screws 120 deg apart item 12. Screw holes can be seen on item 2.

The impeller has a Locking screw item 10 that if it is not removed makes it impossible to remove the impeller.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

LG 47LC7DF LCD TV Remote Sensor not working

IR senor may not be bad. Try using a different remote (universal) and program to TV. If universal remote works and your doesn't, you may need to purchase a remote instead of IR board. If you confirmed that the IR board is bad then replacing the IR board will fix the remote issue. IR board is an easy fix. Just open the back cover out and it's located right in the middle toward the bottom of the TV.

White screen

dreaded capacitor issue. benq's were famous for it. if you are handy with disassembly and careful you can take it apart and do it yourself. look for any capacitors with rounded tops. i fixed one ... the part is only two dollars or so but it's a good feeling to know you fixed it instead of tossing it.

Screen has power but is black

Looks like many faukty parts on the inverter board.. replacing will not be of much help as it will soon start get troublesome once again. I would suggest that replacing the LCD inverter board is a smarter solution. Hope this helps!
Good Luck!

If it's a 71g and not 71g+ resolder transistors 2sc5707 on invertor board along with grey condensers and inverter transformer.This should solve the problem if it was display shutting off with power led remaining on.Otherwise check power section.
