Having problems with your LG Computer Monitors ?

I have an LG Flatron L17NT-A monitor. It doesn't power up even though it's plugged in. Any idea where to get a new power supply unit for it, or is it better to just buy a new one monitor? Thanks, -Matt


Answers :

The most likely cause is bad capacitors or a fuse in the power supply board.
\015\012Dissassemble it, its not very hard, and get the board out so you can see the round barrel shaped capacitors, if you see tops that are rounded rather than flat, then they are bad.
\015\012These can be replaced rather easily, there is a complete set of capacitors on eBay for about $12, individual capacitors are much cheaper from mouser.com, but you have to pay shipping, so the ebay item is probably the best bet.
