Question about Westinghouse 22" Widescreen LCD Flat Panel Monitor
When I turn the monitor one I can see the screen contents for about 1 second before it goes black. If I turn the monitor off and back on, I can again see the contents for about one second.
I fixed it! It's the power supply board.
The Westinghouse LCM 22w2 has bad capacitors on the yellow power supply board. This is a common problem plaguing motherboards and LCD flatpanels that use capacitors from Taiwan. If you know how to solder, or know somebody that can, it's actually a pretty easy fix. Take out the yellow circuit board on the inside, write down the specifications for each of the capacitors (the cylindrical things) go to the electronics supply store and get the replacement capacitors. You can go over the voltage specification (not under), but keep the capacitance value matching. Replace one at a time. Go to www.badcaps.net for advice, tutorials and training on doing this. *You really should replace all the capacitors*, but the very large one next to the power plug I did leave on the board because I couldn't find a match. To my delight, it was working as new!
I saved a ton of money fixing this, it's definitely worth learning how to solder to do this.
