LCD Monitor shows display for a split second when you turn it on but nothing beyond that
Posted on 2006-06-27
I inherited a dell 17" flat panel monitor when it died out of warranty on one of my clients. I took it in figuring I could maybe repair it and keep it for myself. I checked the pins on the cable, replaced the power cord, and as far as I can tell it's maybe something to do with the power supply inside the monitor not being able to provide a constant display. When I first power on the monitor it'll display signal from the computer for a split second correctly before it goes into a cylce of turning off, waiting a second, and flashing on for a brief moment and abruptly and immediately turning back off and repeat. When it begins cycling on/off there is no display, but you can see the screen flash with a little light each time the power cycles. Anyone experienced in lcd repair know what this usually means?
