Question about ViewSonic VX710 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Problem was addressed with the vx715 model but what about the vx710. Capacitor numbering is different and there is no obvious burnout of any area on the main board?

On every one of these monitors that I've repaired this issue has been due to badly overheated, blown capacitors. On one it was a single cap that cost 80 cents. On this model I had one that had 5 bad caps on the power board and it cost several dollars. Usually the bad ones are obvious sometimes I've had to do the simple ohm meter test. All have been easy fixes: a trip to the electronics store and a little soldering.

Yes, do look for caps with bulging tops as shown in my pictures, you should replace them in a set.

Or www.digikey.com, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
