No Power In BenQ T705 17″ LCD Monitor

By on April 8, 2008

This BenQ T705 LCD Monitor came in with no power symptom-power LED didn’t light up. The common fault for this monitor was short circuit in C5707 push pull transistor, FQU11P06 P-channel FET, high ESR in tuning capacitor .22uf 160v, dry joints in high voltage transformer and an open pico fuse. Normally after the replacement of the above parts, the LCD Monitor would start working again but this time “No” even though all the voltages now measured normal! I began to test the SMD Volt voltage regulator and found zero volt output. A-ha! at least i know the problem is in the Mainboard.

My concentration is 100% in the Mainboard and start checking why there was no voltage from the voltage regulator. Upon close inspection, i found two pins shorted together in the Scalar IC. I took a blade and separate the two pins (leg) from shorting and i got to use a magnifier glass to help me to do the job. To my surprised the LCD Monitor starting working when the front power switch was pressed! I don’t know why the two pins can short together perhaps it could be some touch up by repair technicians from other company. The reason i say that was because i could see a scratch mark underneath the front LCD cover.

    Hi Jestine, I have a BenQ G2110W 22" with a no power problem. Have you had any experience in fixing this particular model?

    Kind Regards

    Hi Yinman,

    Never come across this model before. But just like any other lcd monitor when no power one have to check the fuse first and then test whether the power ic is receiving any dc voltage or not. If the fuse have problem please check also the bridge rectifier.

    Hi I have for repair a BenQT705 ,on startup the screen flashes to 1 second green light ok .I have replaced ALL the C5707 and the high voltage caps still no joy can you help

    Hi George,

    Try check the backlight as a weak backlight could cause the display to appear for a second and then shutdown. Make sure also the output of the both top and bottom have the same AC voltage.

    HI Erymas,

    It can be a bad backlight, bad fet, dry joints and also bad inverter IC.

    HI Erymas,

    If the supply voltage disappear after shutdown then suspect a bad Mainboard (if power LED still light).

    Hi Sara,

    May i know what have you check? Is there supply voltage to the power ic?

    Monitor model BenQ t705.The power light is flash so second then gone.must wait for15 min and try again many times.then it is got sound,like tititititi.after that the power light will flashing,the monitor got display BenQ,and you try more,the monitor done with its can fix it?

      Hi Chong,
      Check the filer caps in the secondary side. Make sure no bulged e-cap and that the output voltages are good and stable.
