Question about Computers & Internet
My four year old monitor has started going blank when first turned on. If turned off and turned on again it comes on but goes blank again after a couple of seconds. Any ideas?
This is a very common problem with LCD monitors of that age. The heat buildup in the case has cause parts in the power supply called capacitors to blow and short out the power supply. If you can solder you should be able to do the repair yourself. Just go to our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm Open your monitor and look for the bad caps like in the pictures. Remove and replace any that you see and you should be back going again. Be sure to use high temp replacements (105c) not like from Radio Shack or you will have to do it all over again in a few months. The values are printed on the sides of the ones you take out usually 220uf, 330uf, 470uf and 1000uf values. We carry them in stock if you need them or they can be ordered from several places on the internet. When you install the replacements be sure to insert them with the polarity stripe going the same direction as the bad ones come out. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service $35 + return shipping. If you have any additional questions just ask.
I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
