Question about Computers & Internet
The monitor is a maxstar A170E1-T5.
I took it apart and when i plug it in i see a little spark on one of the copper blocks. I do not know what they are, but it has "F190 X453" on the black casing.
I would like to try and fix this myself, as i'm interested in soldering and electronics.
Any info would be appreciated.

Now that's better.
That is the backlight transformer that is on the inverter board.
Sparks Showing in that small oval indicate a broken winding inside there that is usually not fixable based on where you have it located.
The two mosfet transitors to the right of the larger oval (small square black components with 8 contacts ) may have suffered damage as a result of the shorting in the transformer.
Now the tricky part is trying to locate one. Can you read the numbers ?
Try swapping the two upper light plugs with the two lower ones to see if there is any change. May just have a bulb shorting out ?
