Broken LCD monitor
BTW: a lot of the times popped capacitors will effect the monitor in different ways. However, if your monitor stopped working in a natural manner (ie. not you punching it in rage) then more often than not it is because the capacitors are broken. Therefore, this tutorial will still work=D
BTWW: dont open CRT monitors unless you know what you're doing...but then you could probably skip reading the rest of this tutorial; they contain much larger capacitors and a new monitor is worth it. trust me.
Step 1: Opening Your Monitor
There are a couple wires you may have to unplug throughout the process, and again, picture help a lot especially if you have adhd or like doing a million things at the same time.
IMPORTANT: As you reach the motherboards of the monitor be very careful where you touch. Inside there are often large capacitors that can potentially give you unpleasant shocks. To make sure they are discharged properly, use a screwdriver with a rubber handle and connect the two leads of the capacitor. Chances are it won't do anything, but safety is first as always.
Step 2: Check Out the Caps
- to find the same voltage and current capacitors, you want to check the side for a #uF (current) and a #v(voltage)
-Pay attention to which end is positive and which is negative. Again, pictures for security
Step 3: Putting It All Back Together
Be careful, good luck, and I hope this helps!
Note: if something other than the caps was broken your monitor might still not work, in that case you might have to replace parts, or, worse comes to worse, just get a new one. Couple bucks to try this fix though hopefully won't dig too deep into your wallet=D
