Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Screen turns on for a second then flashes off. Just saw a post that said this could be a capacitor problem.

Answers :


What brand and model monitor do you have? If you want to try and repair it yourself then check our web site at : www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm We have pictures of what the bad capacitors look like, if you see any that look like the pictures you will need to replace them. If you are not sure you can send us some pictures of the boards take as close and clear as possible and I will see if we can help more.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Faulty Monitor? I bought one of these Xerox flat panel 19 inch monitors to replace my convention Sony unit about 4-5 months ago. It has worked just fine until about 7 days ago.
