Less than 5 bucks. Also look at the inverter board, and underneath the board it goes to Yup, common as dirt inverter could be swapped in, or - You could cut off a +12volt and +5 volt lead/connector for disk drives from a dud power supply , drill a hole, and power it externally from any **** no name power supply. Of course, replacing all electros under 100uf may get you going for under a dollar. Canberra

Flickering upon power up. Can you give me an estimated cost to have this fixed by a professional. I dont have experience or adequate tools to do myself. Im I better off just buying a new monitor?

It's likely that the lamp that brightens the screen is failing. Honestly, it will probably cost you more to replace the lamp than just to buy a new monitor. LCD monitors are not too expensive these days, and repairs often cost a lot more than it would seem like.

There are a large number of similar-size screens (20" widescreen) available for under $150 USD. Since any repair would require finding a lamp for your exact screen (which is no longer in production), a repair would probably cost you $200 USD or more.

Good luck, and hope this is helpful!

Won't power up

You can try fixing the board down to component level or spend about $25 on the replacement board.

Or learn how to troubleshoot the problem:

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

My motherboard is nothing display on monitor.

You could have 1 of 3 problems, first your CPU failed or your monitor failed, and last power supply is not pushing out the right voltage to power your video its hard to tell with out looking at the board from here

If you know someone who fix's computer have them take a look at it if you dont then you would have to take your computer into the shop to have them look at for you and give you a idea what its going to cost for repair or the old do it yourself and buy a motherboard and video card memory install it yourself and then take it into the shop so that they can mount the drive on your new motherboard so it wont lock up because its on new hardware

Monitor will not turn on- no power

Look for a reset button on the monitor back. Make sure there is power at the receptacle. Check the power cord to make sure if it good and power is actually getting to the monitor. If you find the power cord is good, then you probably need to just buy another monitor. Cost more to fix a used one than to buy a new one.

no it is a board replacement at best, so i would look into replacing the vga board or getting a new monitor and selling the damaged one for parts with the issue listed

No Display

I have the same problem - the blank/black screen and blinking green power light. The speakers on the monitor work (I can hear the start-up sound that Windows makes), but the screen is blank. We bought the monitor on Halloween Night 2003 at Best Buy and had zero problems to date...except for last night. The Best Buy gang told me this afternoon that it was an internal hardware issue. I called the manufacturer and the tech guy confirmed the problem by saying he was almost positive it was the internal "inverter board" - which means you have to send it in to get it fixed. I guess this is a fairly common problem with these monitors by the way he made it sound. So, that's a $70.00 deal (service, parts, labor, and shipping back to your house) - that is, if there are no other issues with the screen itself - then the cost goes up. So by the time you pay to send it to them and then pay them to fix the board - it looks like you're better off buying a new flat panel monitor. Yikes. Anybody else with any suggestions - other than buy a new one? Thanks!!
