Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

My LT04WT monitor started taking a few minutes to turn on and today just quit altogether. Any ideas?


Answers :

Hello,
This usually indicates a dead power supply. A common problem on LCD monitors after 2-3 years or so. The heat build up in the case causes parts in the power supply called capacitors to bulge and pop, this causes the power supply to not start up right or short out. If you can solder you should be able to do the repair yourself. Go to our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm now take the back off of your monitor and replace all of the capacitors that look like the pictures and you should be back going. Be sure to replace the bad caps with high temp caps (105c) not ones from Radio Shack because they will pop again in a month or two and you will have to do it again. We carry the replacement caps or you can order them from several places on the internet. When you pull the bad caps off the board the values you need will be marked on the side of the bad ones. You will need to be sure to reinsert the new caps with the polarity stripe going the same way as the old one comes out. If you have any questions just ask, contact info is on our site. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 + return shipping.

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