Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem, this series of Westinghouse monitors are known to have this issue. 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 he monitor. When the\015\012capacitors blow out they also damage the driver MOSFETs. If you are\015\012good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he 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\015\012and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be\015\012installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the\015\012old one and insert the new one the same way. I am putting together a\015\012step by step repair guide for this series of LCD monitors, it should be\015\012up by 07/11, check my web site for the guide. Repair parts kits are also available for $16.95 If you don't want to try\015\012the repair yourself we offer a repair service\015\012for $35 plus shipping. If you are not going to repair it we will buy it from you for parts, we pay $30 for dead/as-is units.

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

The screen on my HP pavilion dv2736us laptop stopped working completely out of the blue, with no apparent reason. It was working fine otherwise.
