Question about Planar Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Planar monitor works but doesnt.

I have a planar pe171. I know its ancient and that might be the issue its self but i havent had a problem until now. Basically what happens is that when i turn on the monitor the green light sits there flashing repeatedly and never ending. I dont get any no signal message or anything before hand. it just goes straight into blinking. and every time that it blinks the screen comes to life for the duration of the blink and displays whatever i have on the screen so everything between the tower and monitor are fine. Yet it still doesnt stay on. please help.

I Bought two planar dome C3I , i dont have graphic card.


Only the Planar Dome DX2 card..... no other. Planar did this on purpose to sell those cards at 2k each. Now very reasonably priced on eBay, but they'll only work on XP, not W7.

Backlight replacement


Are you sure it's the backlight? Many Planar LCD monitors have issues with the capacitors on their power supply boards. The symptoms include a power light and no picture, or just a flash of a picture when powering up and then nothing.

The fix for some of these problems is about $8 on new capacitors (Plus shipping).

On the PL2010M monitors you need the following parts. I've added digikey part numbers to make life easier:

P10271-ND 220UF 25V Capacitor (3/4 depending on PS)
P10275-ND 470UF 25V Capacitor (1)
P10221-ND 470UF 10V Capacitor (4)

If you're not comfortable with soldering and de-soldering electronics, take it to a local technitian for the work and give them the parts list above. That should work if the failure looks like I described. I've fixed several of these monitors so far. All the problems were related to the power supplies. Same with the Planar PL1700 LCD monitors.
