Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

I have 2 Gigabite 19'' - 8ms monitors plugged into a G5 mac. Both was working fine. The right hand screen (second display) switches on with start up and then 2sec later it switches off. Then i can switch it on manually then it displays for 2 sec then switches off again...?


Answers :

Hello,

it sounds like you have a power supply going out. Because of the small spaces inside LCD monitors heat builds up and blows parts called capacitors. If you can solder you should be able to do the repair yourself. Go to our web page at: www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and look at the pictures of blown capacitors, open you monitor back and look for any that look like the pictures. Replace any you find and you should be back up and running. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service. Contact me thru our web site for details.
