The power board probably needs an overhaul. Capacitors are probably the cause. It would have to be opened up to check that.
I repair many monitors through ebay and it is common on a lot of monitors.
If you take it apart and send me a picture to bammbamm@ptd.net, I may be able to see the problem.

99% will be bad caps in the power supply section. Take the back off and look for caps with bulging top, replace them with good quality caps such as PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY.

When I replace caps in this model, I replaced all the caps (4 (1000uF by the heat sink, 1 (470uF) by the inverter transformer) for the 5v and the 12v since you cannot 100% relying on just by looking bulging tops.

Hello,

If the caps you took out are rated at 50v it is best to use that rating, lower value caps can short out and cause additional problems. Also a white screen means 1 of 2 things, either the power supply is still not putting out the right voltage or yo have a small fuse blown on the lcd panel. The most likely cause is the power supply is still not right. If you can take a few pictures of your power supply board and send them to me at tech@ccl-la.com I will see if I can cross reference the board with something and try to help you out.
