Philips 170s LCD Monitor Shutdown After “On” For A Second
This Philip 170s LCD Monitor was repaired by someone before and the problem was the display appeared for less than a second and then shut down. This usually prompt to a failure in inverter board or bad backlights. After opened the cover and test for the high voltage transformer, i found one of the transformer secondary winding has an open circuit. I tested it with ohmmeter. Even if you set your analogue meter to the highest range (X10 k ohm) there is still no reading!
Due to the no availability of the high voltage transformer spare parts i used the modification method to solve the problem. It took me about 15 minutes to completely finish the job. Now the Philips 107s LCD Monitor works beautifully! The modification tips is mentioned in my bonus reports in my LCD Monitor Repair Ebook.
