A couple of days ago during the weekend, I booted up my trusted pc lo and behold I heard the Windows startup sound but my LG monitor (LG1753S) screen is blank. I had this monitor for about 3 or 4 years now without any glitch. Used to leave it open for 72 hours sometimes. And this time it had failed to start up. So after checking the power is properly plugged, I shut down my pc again. Turned off the EPS and turn back on, the monitor power lit up(hooray?) but after a few seconds its gone again.
Sorry for no pictures as the pictures got corrupted.
So a little bit of guts and the need to save on service fee, just DIY(Do-It-Yourself), make sure you have the right tools, a philips, screwdriver, soldering iron, soldering lead and check the ratings of the capacitors before purchasing.
