Need Help Finding Parts!

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 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 need an Emachine monitor base piece. The piece that the monitor sits on got lost during our recent move.

I generally go to Ebay when I need to replace a part or find 'hard to find' items. You can find monitor stands on ebay for a reasonable price. You just have to make sure that the stand will work with your emachines monitor. All you have to do is look at the back to see how the stand attaches to the monitor and look for the same mount type. Below is a link to an ebay listing for 15 inch monitor stands.

You can also contact ebay by chat by following this link and ask if they have stands available for your monitor. There are none listed on the emachines site, but that does not mean that they are not available. The link to the Emachines contact page is:

These are two suggestions for finding a replacement monitor base or stand. I hope that you will be able to located the proper stand from these resources.

If I can be of further assistance to you, please let me know.

I want to know where i can buy a cheap tft panel for hp 1730?

First, the terms "cheap" and "panel" don't go together. The display is the most expensive part of an LCD monitor, and when it breaks you're best off not even thinking about buying a replacement. With the cost of new monitors dropping (19-inch models as low as $125 online), you can't hope to resell one without losing money if you buy a replacement panel.

Second, you would need to know that any panel you did find would work properly. All LCD panels are not the same, and you would need one compatible with the monitor's driving electronics and connecting cables. This complicates finding generic replacements.

If you want to sell the monitors, you might consider contacting a company such as or that is in business to buy this kind of equipment, dismantle it and resell the working parts. Or you could try eBay. There may be people offering similar models with good displays, or you could sell yours. But you will ultimately lose money if you try to repair these by purchasing parts.

Does anyone know where to purchase a A/D for board benq T221W

Sorry to hear, that certainly hurts the pride! You say - nothing on eBay, but if you search for Benq for parts or repair, you may find one with a busted screen. You may want to try your search again in a few days if you come up empty at first. A current search brings up a 17 inch, which does no good. If you will use the save search option, eBay will e-mail you if something gets listed. Also: you should have a manual that came with this monitor. It should provide a way to contact Benq for warranty repair. I know that this is not a warranty issue, buy perhaps they can point you in the right direction. Worst case: if you come up empty-handed, sell the remains for parts on eBay, there is always someone like you looking for parts. And you'll likely get a good sum if you list it right!
BTW: how badly is that board damaged? Maybe the board is repairable by a good tech?

Spare parts

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.

X9g komodo v screen just turned blank (white)

Go to ebay, type X9g kimidi logic board. Usually, some seller might have pulled working parts from other monitors and sell them individually. If you cannot find them, google "buy x9g komodo logic board". Some website, I'm quite sure will sell them.

The display cable in your LCD monitor must be replaced.

If you are feeling adventourous then you can look on ebay for a display cable to install but I do not suggest anyone open up a monitor (LCD or CRT) who is not "technically inclined."

If you can get the part then I would take it to a local Tech to replace it.
