Question about Planar XP17W (White) Monitor
I plug in the monitor and it will not stay on. I can not get the black back cover off very easily either. I have done things like this before so i am willing to do work on it myself. Thank you. I think it is the voltage controller for the cold cathodes.
I'd start with taking off the 4 screws and then you have to unclip the cover from the rear. Remove the metal shield to expose the boards. The most common problem is the 5 1000uf, 16v, capacitors. Replacing these(often they are leaking or bulging), should bring back your backlight.
