Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

Acer 1711 monitor won't power up

Plugged in, screen stays blank. Connected computer, no change. The green power LED flickers weakly, and there is a faint clicking at 1Hz intervals coming from inside the case (power supply?). No other signs of life. I guess this would apply to any size monitor, not just the 17 inch. Any ideas? Thanks

    I opened up the monitor, and the power board looks fine - no poor soldering or overheated components or affected circuit board. The power supply looks like a switched mode type. The warning says High Voltage. The only large electrolytic is OK. What is my next step? Thanks

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
