Having problems with your MegaVision MV174 (Carbon, Silver) 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

Back light goes out after about 15 minutes. - MegaVision MV174 (Carbon, Silver) 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor


Answers :

Ayonbaxter, You will need to determine if unit has one or more of these things as the cause of your BACKLIGHT FAILURE. 1. Bad solder joint on printed circuit board. 2. Swollen, leaky electrolytic filter capacitors on switch-mode-power-supply/inverter circuit board. You will need to search youtube for video clips that deal with just that type of failure mode to understand things like "bad caps" "frosty" "cold" solder joints and how to effect a possible repair to your unit. Learn all you can about poor soldering and THERMALLY INTERMITTANT solder connections of passive & active (solid state devices) components on the power supply boards that power your LCD backlights (cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps) CCFLs!!! Tons of info all over the web!!! Then you will know what ails your LCD monitor. Hope this helps you. 12fixlouie
