    Hi everyone,

    A friend of mine gave me this monitor he bought at a garage sale for next to

    yellow power light at turn on of power point
    green light when turning on computer,
    but no image on screen
    slight flash of white if I turn on and off at power button

    Anyone have any ideas as I have NEVER been inside one of these as yet.

    Cheers and thanks

    Probably a failed backlight inverter - very common. When it is at the point
    where it should be displaying an image, shine a strong light at a flat
    angle, onto the screen. If you can see a dim image, then you have no
    backlight. Could be the inverter board, could be one of the CCFLs loading up
    the inverter and stopping it. Replacements might be found at

    Check the cap(s) in the power supply - I have an oldish Samsung 18" screen
    where the only fault was the main (big) cap had died.

    NEC 1810 (P.O.S.)
    Inverter is about as reliable as a Yugo.

    Maybe Yugo made it?

    yeah, i have seen a few of these wee beasies. Change all of the 1000
    uF capacitors near the inverters, even if only one is bulging.

    Also check:- the two drive transistors on each inverter, if one has
    gone bad then it will stop the monitor in the way you describe.

    Most likely shorted on or two transistors on inverter PCB due to bad solder
    on transformers in inverter.
