\015 Yes, I just got a Westing house LCD Monitor L1975NW.I plugged it in and the menu shows up, but I can't differentiate the menu items, as there is barely any light/contrast.I can just see the outline. How can I turn the "light" on, on it. Thank youGeorge\015

Answers :

George, I hope you got IT for free!! You too should find out all you can about LCD cold cathode fluorescent lamps and their electronic ballasts circuits which are called "INVERTERS" and obtain their dc voltage from the monitors "switch-mode-power-supply". If you can see an image on the screen even though it looks BLACK then you know that only half the SMPS is in SHUTDOWN mode. Why don't you try visiting YOUTUBE to search for LCD monitor Disassembly videos that are of the 8-12min long versions just FYI. also try vids of LCD repair and see if the symptoms are same as your's! Then get back to fixya and find out your options on what to do next. You may even tell us WHAT you're going to do!!! I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol. com hope this helps you out a little. please rate this response at fixya. Bye for now. louie nw of Chicago.

LCD monitor Hello,I got an F1703 monitor on eBay. It worked all right for a day or so, then the picture became washed out, especially on the bottom, with fine white(or black) lines visible. The OSD controls have little or no effect. The power supply seems OK(16.75VDC). In a dialog box, there's a figure of 8.5K hours. If that is total running time, is that a lot?I'd like to try and salvage it (I'm quite familiar with a soldering iron) and read somewhere that bad capacitors can cause such problems
