Answers :

Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors\015\012will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called\015\012capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are\015\012good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work\015\012fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -\015\012connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the\015\012same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

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