L2045w White Screen Repair

L2045w White Screen Repair

This is a step by step video to walk you through repairing this type of monitor if you are having the “White Screen” issue. The problem with this monitor is a small ribbon cable that is located deep inside the monitor. When this cable comes loose, the white display is the result. Be advised that I’m not a repair tech and if you’re going to be doing this kind of repair, you do so at your own risk (ie. damage to your hardware, electric shock, etc.).

I uploaded this video because when I was searching for a fix online I couldn’t locate any information about this. So hopefully this can help you. This isn’t my best camera work, but it was hard to hold the camera and use the tools. Please be kind in the remarks and Good Luck!

    My 27' Acer monitor has the white screen going on so I took it apart but the ribbon cables are locked in, kind where you have to depress the tabs. So I'm guessing the ribbon cable itself must be shot? Any help appreciated

    I opened my monitor case and the cable was connected, is there any other way something could cause this? Any help would be appreciated. (BTW I have a Dell S2209Wb if that helps anyone)

    This worked very well..  I had a Hanns G HH191 that had the white screen issue… When I took it apart I found that the ribbon cable had worked its way out of the circuit board that contained the DVI-D and vga connectors.  This monitor was one the neighbor had tossed out.. I managed to rescue it before the garbage man came..   Thank you for taking the time to make this video!

    Does this method work with LG TV or just monitors? I got the white screen on my LG 37 inch and just about to open it up and check for that loose cable. Hope your video helps me out. I'll report back.

    Hi dude, do you know if this also solve the problems that causes permanent color vertical lines? I'm sure it's a hardware problem because it happens even if the monitor isn't connected to pc.

    some other issue on that white screen error is the chips on the main board..your lucky that the cable is the only culprit,that's easy to repair.

    Thanks for sharing this– just had this happen to a monitor we use in the field. (Acer x203H in my case). Problem was identical! And noticed it has a Samsung panel inside as well. Thanks for the heads up– much easier fix to check than getting into capacitors on the power board.
