Having problems with your Star Logic 17" LCD Monitor ?

Monitor turns on, but only flashes once and no screen appears

\015 We had the monitor on and working just fine. We moved the computer from one location to another, and now it won't stay on. As soon as we turn it on, it does a quick flash, to see the desktop, and then goes blank????\015\012\015\012It is a 17" Starlogic Model #M17ANA\015\012\015\012Thanks!\015

Hello,
\015\012
\015\012You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors\015\012will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called\015\012capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are\015\012good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm\015\012You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad\015\012parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should\015\012work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct +\015\012and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new\015\012one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer\015\012a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please\015\012rate my solution.
