Question about Mag Innovision LT976S 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
David8 - Great solution, I did exactly as you stated, right down to the 470uF, 35V 85C caps from Radio Shack. I changed all 6 caps and the monitor now works like a charm. I saved $190 I didn't want to spend right now. The fix took about an hour total, from opening the monitor to turning it back on.
My question is, what capacitor life expectancy should I expect to see by going to a higher voltage rating, but a lower temperature rating?
I'm not a 100% sure on how long it will last you, but I doubt your monitor will go over 185F degrees even while running all day and since it's a higher voltage it wont get blown as easily. I only changed mine a few weeks ago, but some other guy who did the same said he's has been working for like a year now without any problems. I think they'll last longer than the originals.
