Having problems with your HP vs15 15"LCD Flat Panel Monitor ?

HP VS15X backlights out

\015 Dear Whomever, I have an HP VS15X lcd monitor that has gone dark. I've been an electronics technician for over 30 years now and I do my own repairs whenever I can. I've taken this monitor apart and found 2 surface mount transistors bad. One is marked 76 and the other 86. These seem to be part of the backlight circuit as best as I can tell without a schematic. I need to know what kind of transistors these are. I can't cross reference them because of the limited information printed on them due to their tiny size. If you could possibly provide me with this information it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, in advance, for your concideration. Sincerely your Woody Woodruff\015

Sorry I can't supply the details of the transistors, but it sounds like it is the inverter board that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp (this lamp is a mini fluro lamp)..

Hi, i have this acer 1912 19" lcd monitor, it won't turn on (actually it will turn on if i wait for a few hours). if i unplug the vga cable and press the power button, it will display "acer "and then "no signal" then goes to standby(orange light). but if the vga cable is plugged in and i turn it on then it will display "acer" and then nothing, and i have to wait for hours for it to be back to normal. any suggestions please
