Having problems with your Westinghouse Computer Monitors ?

Westinghouse LCM-19w4 has power, but blank screen

\015 I have a Westinghouse LCM-19w4 Monitor. Just recently the monitor went out. I put it on another computer and it doesn't work. I also have changed the cord that goes from the computer to the monitor, same thing. However, the power light on the monitor still comes on, but blinks. Is there anything that can be done to fix it, or would I be better off getting a new one?\015

Answers :

You can fix this -- it happened to me and I found this page. I took the covers off the monitors (there are a few tutorials with pictures on the Internet). Then, I found two faulty capacitors -- you can tell because the top is subtly more dome shaped than the rest. I bought replacements here -- http://www.amazon.com/1000uf-Capacitor-105c-Radial-Leads/dp/B004C4VLZS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388957038&sr=8-1&keywords=1000+microfarad+25v
Refer to an earlier post about similar problems. Does it power up and then shut itself off. this is possibly due to two defective capacitors. 27 cents on line $1.50 at radio shack. They will be puffy on top.\015\012I am a complete novice to soldering a capacitor onto a board. but since I was junking the monitor otherwise I gave it a try. It's still working after sitting idle a year. Handy advice on soldering online.\015\012use copper wire to **** up the old solder and try not to fry the capacitors or the board. If I did it anyone can.
