Having problems with your IBM ThinkVision L170m (Black) Monitor ?
Image appears for 2-3 seconds then screen goes black
\015 IBM ThinkVision L170m monitor - was fine for 3 years, but now when PC switched on the monitor displays the PC's image for about 2-3 seconds then the screen goes black. On/Off switch on monitor has no effect. Disconnect and reconnect of PC cable will give same result - 2-3 seconds of image, then blackness. So - the power's OK, the PC signal is getting through, but the monitor won't "hold" the image for more than 3 seconds.\015
The following steps are how to examine\015\012what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen\015\012went black, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or\015\012not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best\015\012angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or\015\012any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside\015\012screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot\015\012see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you\015\012have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It\015\012may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board\015\012because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a\015\012technician to do so.\015\012Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
