Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have an HP flatscreen monitor that worked great til the other day. Now it only stays on for about a second and then goes black. If I turn it off and then back on it again will only stay on for a second. Time for a new monitor? This one is only a year old


Answers :

I,m guessing that what has happened to your monitor is that there are caps (capasitors ) in a few of the monitors on the market today the company bought caps from capxon which is a bad company.... i see a lot of them in all types of systems anyway when the cap fails the screan fails most people throw the monitor away but the cost to fix it your self is about 1.25 cents
\015\012just open the monitor up unpluged of course
\015\012look for the cap that is not flat on top or has brown coming out of the bottom write the number down
\015\012( looks like 1000uf at 16volts ) example go to radio shack and get a new one soldering is not hard just be careful and put the new one in the same way as the old one ( remember + & - do count
