Replacing Capacitors to Repair a 22″ LCD Monitor

Contributed by: Facethewind

Tutorial on how to repair a very common cause of failure in LCD monitors — failed capacitors.  This monitor is a V7 D22W12 (22″ TFT LCD monitor). This particular one was being thrown out because it no longer displayed a picture.  When connected to a computer, it would show an image briefly, and then go dark.  This is an indication that the power supply for the cathode tube backlight was failing, due to failing capacitors.  This is a common problem with cheaper electronics made overseas.  Luckily, the fix is easy and cheap — I spent $1 and about an hour to make the repair.
