A few weeks ago I repaired Melissa’s LCD Monitor. It was the first time I attempted to fix one, but I’ve worked inside a couple notebooks and computers for a while, and I figured that I could always try to sell the parts if I what I thought was wrong with it wasn’t. One day out of the blue, her screen turned off on its own. I switched out power cables, plugged it into another power strip, and then did an internet search for resolution. (Resolution, for a monitor problem… :)) The most likely culprit was the inverter-power board.
I found a place that sells inverters and power boards for a variety of LCDs, including hers, a Dell 1707FPc 17″ with built-in USB 2.0 hub. I had to pry open the plastic case of the monitor very carefully, so that it would look nice after I put it back together in the end. I also had to remove the metal shielding around the boards. so that I could identify the type of inverter/power board that I needed. The vendor had the wrong image up for the board, but they had the best price and were helpful in responding back to me when I emailed them a picture of the board I had for confirmation.
