Question about Packard Bell FT500 15" LCD Monitor
I have a Packard Bell FT 500 monitor that appears to have developed a problem with the on off switch.When turning on initially - the switch seems to be intermittent and the monitor will not stay ON. The green indicator light flickers but will not go steady. Maybe the switch is duff - so can anyone tell me where I can find a replacement switch - and a part number if possible.
I have this same problem, any idea what the details are for the caps? Thanks.

Ref: CH Jones and others who have this problem.
Whilst my monitor has been back in action for nearly a year now - I appreciate there are others out there who have the same thing happen.
All I can say is that I know nothing at all about these things and had to do a lot of digging to find the answer.
I had my power board pcb repaired by a Company called Mercom Ltd - cost me £35 - but was worth it to get it up and running again. I removed the pcb myself - packed it up and sent it to Mercom for the attention of a guy called Simon Alcock.
Their address if it helps is:
Mercom Test and Repair - Unit 5 - 31 to 33 Cowley Road
Nuffield Ind Estate - Poole - Dorset - BH17 0UJ
Hope that may be of some help - and the end to your flashing green lights. - Very painful

LOL.. how true your Grandad was. I've got the same problem except mines intermittant cycling yellow/green so guess it could be the same problem caps maybe. My supply is made by Liteon and is a ultrasonically sealed unit so unless I cut it open to work on it it would be easier to try it on another one for the time being to see if the fault is still there I guess thus eliminating OR confirming PSU block.

March 23 2007 This problem is now resolved and the monitor fixed and working. For reference - it was nothing to do with the ON/OFF switch at all. The Power Supply / Inverter PCB had two duff capacitors. These were replaced and BINGO - a working unit. For other reference - had absolutely NO assistance from any of the users of the various Forums I tried - NO suggestions - NO nothing. I remember my Grandfather once saying "You get nothing for nothing in this world lad" Not even advice - He was right.
