ViewSonic Optiquest V773 monitor smoking

\015 Does anyone have a parts list for the above monitor. I have a copy of a schematic diagram. My monitor died (smoke coming from unit). Upon investigation, I found that component R802 had fried. Since it has Rxxx, I assume it is a resistor, but can't determine exactly what type it is. Does anyone know. \015\012\015\012Thanks for any help.\015\012\015\012Ron\015

Answers :

If you have a monitor that is smoking, you need to get rid of it. Especially if it is 7 years old. It has lived it's life. While many monitors do live longer, you can get a new one for under $200.00. Why go through the bother trying to fix it? Monitors should never be opened by the regular computer user for "fixing". Only an electrical specialist should attempt this otherwise there could be serious injuries to the consumer.
