Having problems with your Westinghouse L1975NW Monitor ?

My monitor was working fine last night. I got up

\015 My monitor was working fine last night. I got up this morning and woke it from hibernation. The power light shows its on but you can't see anything on screen unless some source of light is on the screen, but even then it is faded. Is this something that is easily fixed or better of buying a new one?\015

Answers :

Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors\015\012willblow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called\015\012capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. When the capacitors blow out they also damage the driver MOSFETs. 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 You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictures\015\012and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be\015\012installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the\015\012old one and insert the new one the same way. I am putting together a step by step repair guide for this series of LCD monitors, it should be up by 07/11, check my web site for the guide. Repair parts kits are also available for $16.95 If you don't want to try\015\012the repair yourself we offer a repair service\015\012for $35 plus shipping. If you are not going to repair it we will buy it from you for parts, we pay $30 for dead/as-is units.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Sounds like the backlight is out. check with westinghouse to see if they can do anything under the warranty. otherwise, replace the monitor. the cost of this repair would be near the cost of a replacement.
