dbartholo630, Your CCFL back-lit lcd monitor no different than any other brand in it's basic use of technology, design, and operation!! Your 5 to 7 year old unit needs work (repair/refurbishment) of it's power supply. Yes, it could have swollen, leaky electrolytic filter capacitors on the switch mode power supply that will need replacing with new one's to get it up and running again???? Read fixya "profiles" and "testimonials" of the following fixya tech's: "budmrtn" "buddymc" "12fixlouie".
Only you will determine if you will DIY fix or just trade in for new wide screen unit. Hope this was of some use to you. 12fixlouie

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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 LG 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.

pkawinzi, Fuse or switch-mode-power-supply has failed. If internal fuse ok, SMPS may be in full shutdown mode. Unit will need you or qualified ccfl back-lit lcd monitor tech to open unit and inspect smps printed circuit board if warranty has long since expired. All CCFL back-lit lcd monitors are of same basic design and operation. Just do some reading in the fixya profiles of tech's " buddymc" , "budmrtn" , and my old file "louie12fix" for all you need to know to make decision to repair (DIY or out-source repair) your unit. You only stated "now" info!!! A little bit of past performance "history" of your unit would have been more helpful.

Most monitors allow for a wall mount to be screwed on to the back with a standardized kit. I would not cut anything if I were you. Just disconnect the pedestal and use a wall bracket.

some possible problem from that is the back light inverter ckt. try to test if possible. bring it to the nearest service center.

LG Flatron... | Answered on Apr 20, 2010


Did you inspect the caps, any bulging one? Measure the power supply to see if you do have 5v and 12v on the power supply/inverter board.
See pictures and websites so you will know what to look for:

candlelig840, Your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" back-lit lcd monitor may not be in sleep-mode!! However, it may be in "black screen" or "Blank n Black screen" mode. Spend an hour doing some reading in my fixya profile and read testimonials and follow the web links. Your monitor isn't any different than any other brand in it's basic design and operation!!! Again, read my and other LCD monitor tech's ("budmrtn" , "buddymc" ) for information on doing your own repair or to find out all your options you have when dealing with CCFL back-lit LCD panel that is now black and lifeless!! If you live in or near a large (>2 million) city, give a call to local TV/lcd repair shop and question them about black screen and what is the top cause of lcd monitor/ lcd tv black screen failures. If you need further assistance after you research your monitor's problem do another comment here on fixya and we will be glad to help you. Do not rate this response. If you do, you will break the link and not have option to do further comments back to this posting. 12fixlouie

Hi,

Before you Proceed, Disconnect the Power Supply, Unplug the Cord and then try to plug in after few minutes, say 30 minutes. If the Problem persists, more likely it's a Faulty Power Supply Board.

You need to have some electronic Experience to Open the TV and then you need to locate the Board. Once you find the Board, you need to pull the wires and try to Look for Swelled / Bulged / Leaked Capacitor. You need to go to Radio Shack or Order Online and then replace that. Once replaced, that would fix the issue. Usually, Bad Caps do have Ammonia kind of odor.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The blue screen of death is incredibly frustrating. Windowsmag-glass_10x10.gif gives you an option called Safe Mode for whenever there is an internal Windows problem on your PC that needs to be resolved such as the blue screen of death or the display driver setting resolution is so low that you cannot navigate through Windows to alter the settings to a higher resolution. Safe mode allows the user to fix problems without these problems loading up.
  1. tep 1 Reboot your PC. If you can't restart normally by going to the start up menu, then hold in the power button for a few minutes. If you need to enter safe mode but can restart normally, do so.
  2. Step 2 After the hard drivemag-glass_10x10.gif mounts but BEFORE Windows starts to load, Press the F8 key repeatedly on your keyboard. If you do not get the menu with the safe mode option, then you did not begin tapping F8 soon enough. Try again.
  3. Step 3 There will be a menu that will appear. Select Safe Mode. Once you are in safe mode, you can fix what needs to be fixed without the problems loading up on your machine.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Personalization >Display Settings.
Adjust your resolution down which will fill the screen.

Each time you adjust it, it will show you what the screen will look like and you will have the opportunity to save that setting or revert.
