Re: LG W22h2TQ monitor just turned black
Easy way to find out go to bestbuy and purchase a video card and install it if everything works out its the video card if not then its the monitor that went bad if its still under warranty send it back and get a replacement,

I opened up 2 of my 906bw and found 3 caps in the power board bulging. They are C316, C112 and C113 they are all 25v 820uF I'm going to replace and see what happens. Maybe try a higher V see if it helps longevity.
Same problem started happening two days ago and ever since. I called LG and the product falls under a 3yr product warranty according to them (from my original purchase date of January 20, 2007). They will send packing slips to me so I can send the defective unit back to LG. I was told I am eligible for a replacement monitor - which will be shipped to me within 10 to 14 days (consecutive days, not business) - although I'm not sure what I'm being sent in return. My suspicion is that this monitor issue is a known issue by LG and they are quietly replacing the unit to those who follow through by calling CS.
Tips: Have your original purchase date on hand (in the form of a receipt) just in case they want proof of purchase.
If U can see the cursor then your monitor is fine, the culprit is your graphics card. It could be a virus, or a driver error. Try installing the drivers and check for viruses, if no help then Your graphic card is the most likely fault
