Having problems with your Westinghouse LCM-19v1 Monitor ?

I have a westinghouse 19 with a broken backlight

\015 I have a westinghouse 19" widescreen LCD monitor. It turns on and with a lot of light on it the picture is thee but otherwise looks black. It appears to be a problem with the backlight.It has 4 ccfl lamps and none of them even flicker which makes me thing it is a problem with the inverter and not a dead bulb. But the inverter is integrated so replacing it is not easy. I also noticed that a couple of the capxon 220uf 25v capacitors may be bulged, but if they are it's not by much and I am unsure if that is the problem. I'm at a loss of what to do next and would like to try to repair the monitor for under $50.Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

If its like my 20v5 then it might be a power supply problem with bulging caps.

the link below shows the part numbers how to replace all the caps for my 20v5 model. look at that and sillybits entry how to take it apart. your monitor should be similar but i would talk apart first to verify the same caps exist in your unit.

There is a chip in your monitor that is burnt out. To replace it would cost you about $150.00. To remove it is even harder as it is in the inside mount to your screen. If you are able to remove your front screen and put it on a board you can use your tester to find the chip. It would be cheaper to buy yourself another monitor. As the hours it will take to do this are intense. If you don't have the time to do this all in a day don't do it, as your memory will run into problems trying to accomplish this over a period of time. Try craigslist. Let me know if I can help with anything else. Thanks.
