The cell hasn't been dropped or anything else happened to it since i've replaced the LCD! Kindly lemme know what to do other then replacing the LCD again!
You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you aregood at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htmYou can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the badparts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor shouldwork fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct +and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the newone the same way. You may be able to get the repalcement capacitors atyour local Radio Shack, if not there are several sites and the internetyou can order from. If you don't want to try the repair yourself weoffer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if soplease rate my solution.
