Please excuse me posting this as a 'solution', which I rather think demands one knows what was wrong in the first place! Anyhow, I have fixed my problem with this monitor. As previously mentioned cutting JP13 didn't restore the blank display. BTW: JP13 is on the component side of the first power supply printed circuit board (PCB), its under the steel plate in the back of the monitor case, remove both plate and board mounting screws to get at it. But responding to someones previous suggestion, I went about replacing all electrolytic capacitors (caps) on this board, did this rather than just replace C10/C11 as its a bit of a fiddle to open/reclose the monitor case and I'd already done it twice by this stage and wanted to limit possible damage to cables/connectors etc by repeated dismantling of case. ANYHOW! result is that monitor is fixed (so far!), had it on soak for a week and am using it right now, so hopefully it will stay that way. Its fairly easy job to do if you have some PCB soldering experience, you'll need a small iron and a 'solder remover/******' (when removing old caps). Recommend you look at www.badcaps.net/forum for info on the capacitor values you'll need. I used recommended good quality capacitors - Nichicon and Panasonic. If anyone is interested I'll post the list of values I used but its pretty easy to extract the old caps and get the values from them. Hope this is of help, regards Phil

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on: Basic LCD monitor and TV troubleshooting guide: Learn about bad caps: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague Capacitors kit: http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/ he can make you a set of caps for you.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
Or www.digikey.com just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
