Thank you Dricks for this detailed guide on fixing this monitor.
I have 2 of them and 1 started to flicker, so after reading your guide, I decided to give it a shot (after all I was going to throw it away and buy a new one, so no harm if I were to F&*% it up...lol).
Everyday it was getting longer and longer (it took 8 hours to come on one day), so I decided to leave the monitor on 24/7 as my PC is always on. Then one day in my drunken state, I decided to turn things off, and the next day I turned the monitor on, after 3 days the flickering hadn't stopped (lucky I had the other monitor).
Before the capacitors arrived, my other monitor started flikering for 10 secs and I was spewing I didn't order enough for both (so from then on the second monitor would have to stay on... lol) The Capacitors arrived and I got excited and straight to work. Unfortunately my soldering skills are not that crash hot (not pun intented) and unfortunately I think I may have fried the board itself.
Oh Well, next step.... I saw on eBay, there was the Power board available to purchase itself, so $46 (x2, as I ordered for the other monitor also) and 3 weeks later, they arrived and once again I got excited, used your guide again to take apart the monitor and got to work.
The next thing that made me laugh (and cry) was the part on the power board which you plug into, was slightly different, it had a switch on the new one. The old one didn't, not being detered, I got out the 'Dremel', took the other chip board off and got stuck into it. Put it all together and.........
IT WORKS.... lol
Then I started on the second monitor and after dremeling the hole bigger, I started putting it back together and it needed a little more shaved off. Stupid me was in a hurry and decided to leave the other chip board in there whilst dremeling the hole a little bigger and I think the vibrations may have affected the other chip board and although the second monitor is working, it is a little pixelated.
Do you think this is what happened or something different? Can the second chip board be ordered?
Also on another note:
3/ unclip the left metal plate (with a screwdriver, it works great) and remove the 4 little cables. Write down their order and colors so that you won't forget it at mount time.
On the first monitor, my cables were exactly like yours (red on the outsides), however on the second monitor, they were different, the red ones were on the top on both, put it back how I found it though. What would happen if I put them back wrong?
Thanks for listening to my long winded story.... lol (I find it funny).
