Bought a new monitor and it works just fine when hooked up to my computer. I knew it was the monitor from the start. All black screen, not even a “NO SIGNAL” message.
When the old monitor is plugged in you can hear a slight “strobbing” sound from the back of the monitor. I took this thing apart 2 times and I can’t figure out what is wrong with it. I even took the tubes out from the screen and connected them to the inverter and plugged it back in to see if the tubes would light up. Well nothing, don’t know if it’s because the the whole thing needs to be in the case to create a good ground or if my “inverter” is shot.
The LED on the “button” circuit card doesn’t even light up. I’m talking your buttons that either turn the monitor on or off and adjust your brightness etc. well that circuit card has an LED on it to either show BLUE or GREEN or ORANGE I think depending what mode your monitor is in. That doesn’t light up.
So I think the problem lies in the power/inverter board. It’s a Lien Chang AI-0066-PCB. I can’t find any parts for it or a replacement board.
Any suggestions now? I wanna repair it, just to say I did and then either save it or sell it.
