where can i get a backlight inverter for HP 1702 17 inch lcd monitor?
monitor powers on, screen works then 15 or so seconds then goes dark. still can see the monitor is working (with flashlight etc. backlight inverter is the problem.
need to replace it but can not find the part (inverter)or one that is compatible (?). have tried HP Compaq, inverter store (online) etc.
I had This fault recently, it was caused by a smoothing capacitor on the power supply board. It was quite easy to spot as the top had bulged. 1000 uf @ 16v i replaced it . On testing the capacitor it had almost no capacity at all. Hope this helps.
To obtain an identical inverter is nearly impossible, and the only response from the manufacturer is to go out and buy a new screen, but we can usually repair the inverter, have a look at www.lumaco.co.uk
