Question about Planar PL2010M 20" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Testing on the power board shows voltage starts at 12.25 and quickly drops off as if a capacitor is discharging, until it reaches about .4v then slowly re-charges to about 12.25 and drops off quickly again. I can't even get the power LED to come on. Do you know where I can get a replacement power board?
There is a supplier of power boards online, you can google them with numbers from the board but I don't suggest using them. Look for information on the company also. I've seen a lot of complaints for this "international" company.
The fix for most of the problems on these monitors is about $8 on new capacitors (Plus shipping).
First check that you are getting a strong 12V from the external power adapter. If so, the problems may be as simple as changing out a few capacitors.
On the PL2010M monitors you need the following parts. I've added digikey part numbers to make life easier:
P10271-ND 220UF 25V Capacitor (3 or 4 depending on PS)
P10275-ND 470UF 25V Capacitor (1)
P10221-ND 470UF 10V Capacitor (4)
If you're not comfortable with soldering and de-soldering electronics, take it to a local technitian for the work and give them the parts list above. That should work to fix your issues. I've fixed several of these monitors so far. All the problems were related to the power supplies having bad capacitors. Same with the Planar PL1700 LCD monitors.

"Bad power board Planar PL2010M"
I opened up my Planar PL2010M and the capacitor's 1,3,4 do not look the same as the part numbers you listed (P10275-ND)etc look on Digi-Key's web site.
The part number you give are in capacitor slots 22,40,60,54,,52,55,56,57
Any ideas on what I am doing different my monitor part number is 997-2827-00

He is right... I got one for (almost free) by replacing a few caps on the power board after someone else gave up on it. In this case it was easy because the caps in question were visibly swollen and thus easy to spot. Local electronics store had the replacements for maybe a couple of bucks.
