It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will
blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors
overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm
can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad
parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should
work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and
- connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one
the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair
