I would like to know if anyone can suggest a place where I can get parts for this monitor besides Ebay,as they don't have any for this right now.Does Compaq sell parts for these?I'm looking for the little black plastic shield with two holes in it that covers the board under the two stand screws.It's about an inch wide,and five inches long.I know it is not a real big deal,but I broke it taking it apart, and I figured if it wasn't too much,I would just get another one.I also need some Elite 16V 1000uF 105c capacitors.These are the large tall black ones.I looked on Radio Shack,but they don't carry these.Any help is greatly appreciated!Thank You very much!

Re: Need Help Finding Parts!
Concerning the black plastic piece, gluing it may be your best bet since specialty parts like that are not usually available for these monitors.
I would NOT recommend that you try to find Elite brand capacitors. They seem to be the cause of the failure, after all!
I always replace ALL of the non-polarized electrolytic capacitors in these units with new 105-degree, good quality replacements.
At the very very least, you should replace any that are bulging or leaking.
While any good brand is fine, I get them from Tritronics.
Order them by value and voltage (make sure the voltage you choose is at or a bit higher than the old cap).
Visit http://www.wehaveparts.com then click on "Click Here to Shop Our Parts & Accessories Catalog" then on the next page scroll down to "Capacitors" and click on "Standard Electrolytic Caps".

I am an electronics tech so i know that finding spare parts for a tv can be very difficult. Your best bet is to try to purchase the board from Sansui. If Sansui cannot help you ebay is a great place to find spare parts.
Besides the Dealer, you should have luck with online sites for Salvage parts. Just look first in your phonebook for local Salvage or Used Auto parts. If the local places do not have it, there should be advertisement for Internet services at the Salvage place.
Second, do a websearch for Internet Auto parts. They use FedEx, UPS, and Postal right to your door, This part should be pretty light so I don't think the freight will cost much.
I have used the Internet for used boat parts, car transmissions (was shipped by Greyhound) and wiring harnesses. You can find some parts on Ebay and Craigslist, both new and used.
i have been shoping on ebay for years looking for parts to restore my t/a's and just noticed that shopping online with year one and national parts depot, i've found the parts somtimes brand new at cheaper prices. also i've been lucky to find parts at my local pontiac dealership for my 1987 gta trans am. hope this helps.
bought a used non-workjing dx 7440 camera for cheap on ebay and just took mine apart and replaced the rear housing assembly. the solution to the parts problem was googling it and finding some ebay matches that were hard to find on ebay's site itself ...
This couldv'e went under here or I have the same problem, unfortunately there aren't dealers selling spare parts unless it's wholesale(in bulk) to another dealer. I know this is going to sound cliche-ish but ebay is the only place where you may get a non working unit that has the part you need for a halfway decent price. Just check with the seller to make sure that the part you need on the unit is working before you purchase.
Here is a list of places that sell parts for Averatec, if they don't list your specific one you can try asking them directly.
As far as the cost of repair parts go non-authorized repair shops (and users) don't get to determine what a fair price is, the manufacturer does. Size and complexity isn?t the major factor in what determines the cost a repair part is sold at. Lots depends on how many laptops were manufactured, what percentage their experience says they need to stock for their warranty repairs (about a year if nothing goes wrong) and then to the end of life (about two years after that). They calculate the number and add that into the manufacturing run while the laptops are still in production then the go into storage which is really expensive. Keeping inventory is expensive; it not only ties up their money in direct manufacturing costs, stocking is incredibly expensive as well. So as you can see the less they have to keep the better they are so they don?t really want to sell parts to anyone. There are always exceptions, especially with popular laptop lines like the ThinkPad and Dell.
As far as Ebay goes sometimes the prices are out of line but most of the time they are considerably cheaper than what the going rate is, just have to know the market for that particular item.
I didn?t stay up late to write this rambling explanation (it?s really late) to try to antagonize you so please don?t take offense. Unfortunitly I suspect someone will but never the less I find that it?s good for people to understand why a repair part is so expensive at times. It makes them a better consumer and much more careful about what they buy. Sometimes what seems like a good deal can wind up being more expensive in the long run
