Having problems with your ViewSonic VP201s 20.1" LCD Monitor ?

Viewsonic VP201s LCD Monitor won't turn on, clicks...Pics incl.

\015 I have Viewsonic VP201s Monitor that is just about 5 years old. It is always connected to a newer Panasonic surge protector.It's been stormy today and when I tried to power up my monitor, nada. No ON light, no response.I hooked my TV to the PC and it works fine, so it is the monitor.I have opened it up, down to the boards. When I power it up, there is a distinct clicking noise coming from what I'd guess is the 'projector.' Right near that piece is what looks like a fuse, and it's pretty cloudy looking.I have taken some hi-res pictures of the inside, and included the links below. The pictures are huge as I can't resize them on my iPhone lol.If there is anything else that would help to see, I can take other pics.The bit in the center is where I hear the clicking noisehttp://img706.imageshack.us/img706/2664/vp201s041.jpghttp://img175.imageshack.us/img175/1966/vp201s075.jpgFuse? Bottom of R board, right above Power Switch/Plug and below the clicking part.http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/7480/vp201s150.jpghttp://img535.imageshack.us/img535/6786/vp201s138.jpghttp://img193.imageshack.us/img193/5431/vp201s056.jpgAs I said, I have more pictures of the other boards/components inside if more info is helpful.I'm a pretty bright guy and can solder well. Is there any hope for me? :DThanks in advance, I love this place. -Eric\015
