Having problems with your Westinghouse Electric LCM-17v2 17" Monitor ?

When i turn on my westinghouse 17" LCD monitor it will have a sharp white bar appear through the screen in various sections then blotch out to completely white, after i let it warm up for about 20 minutes it will work, but when i adjust the brightness it will flicker horribly. Is it worth the repair or should i just buy a new one?


Answers :

Hi
Well that's the age old question. Is it worth repair? The problem is probably 6 capacitors in the power supply that have aged significantly. In my shop those caps would run approx $2.00 each with a total labor charge of $50.00. Now whats the charge where you live? Then you can decide if it's worth a $62.00 repair or a new monitor for $150.00. Good luck
