Question about LG L1915S 19" LCD Monitor
Hi guys I have a LG FLATRON L1915S Model L1915SN, the issue is when I power on the pc its shows a screen only for a sec and after that black screen (the light stays green and when I power off the desktop turns in orange as it is supposed to be). As checked it shows a screen for a second every refresh screen and thats all after that black screen, any idea what might be? and an estimated repair cost?

Old monitor , no PC stated, nor cable used < VGA>
test this old monitor on 2nd PC, if fails the monitor is bad.
it is 14 years old today, 2005 made
all this old are bad the toxic CCFL lamps go bad long ago.
best is the recycle center, it and buy only monitors and laptops
2010 or newer, or you get CCFL backlamps again.
the monitor this old has near zero street value, and repair costs are huge, nobody puts $1000 saddle on a $5 15 year old horse,
The CCFL panel can cost $100 and 1 to 2x that for labor
a used monitor is like $40 ,even walfart sells them called refurbs.

Testimonial: "Hi Larry thank you for your reply and your help, finally was the problem was on power supply (this model of LG had inside), I found and I replace it the cost of the PSU unit for my monitor was 20$ +10$ for installation , the colors on the monitor althought its age are exaclty the same as the first day that I bought it and the panel works perfectly if the issue was on the panel then I wouldn't repair it. I have also two other monitors (Samsung 23" and LG 23") 3 and 4 years old and I could tell you that the colors are not so great as the first time I bought them."

Check out for bad caps in the power supply first.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, 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 and other monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
