    The power light does not come on. The cables are good. Is there a local monitor repair shop or do we need to ship it to you.How much is the rate for a tech to look at the computer? Please let us know at your earliest.

Gumpster, Yes, there are replaceable parts inside, however, the question is can it be fixed economically. If this was supposed to be working I would return it as fast as you can. If not then it could be your logic board ($80 approx) or your external power supply ($25 approx). If you decide to pursue this take proper precautions to protect yourself and the monitor components. Let us know how things go and please don?t forget to rate this post.

2001fp the screen is black the power light is green. It will flash when first turned on but wont light up. I have it apart and I don't see any obvious bad caps

The problem can be in the inverter board:

You can try replacing the inverter and hope that the problem is not in the backlight assemblies. You need the test lamps to verify the function of the inverter board. Do you get steady 20vdc feeding the inverter. You can also try heating up the two black electrolytic caps on the inverter board to see if the inverter will fire up using hair dryer, when bad caps with high ESR are heat up the ESR will go down.

Failed TV and Monitors:


Although this site does not list the 2001fp speciffically it was very helpfull for me to learn about caps on power supply boards. Follow the steps of the "tutor" at the bottom of the page (after the testamonials) and its pretty straight forward.
