I got hold of an 22" LCD monitor, GNR TS2200W to be exact, for a very cheap price of £30 - being sold as 'broken' online I bought it and quickly found the problem after popping open the screen

As is blatantly obvious, the LCD controller board has been through the wars!

I did get the display working for a few hours, with magic, and it was perfect, so now my mission, Get the board fixed.
My only query, - Am I able to buy a new board for a discontinued LCD monitor if i'm laughed out a computer repair shop?
I'll keep updating with my progress with the screen!

LOL! Been there done that.

 

Do you have a part# for the board? Should be along an edge.  I'll check my sources here in the US.

How are your language skills?

 

Googling MB-N68665-DTK tunred up this.

Yep, all I can find though are revision 1.6 boards (yours is 1.5) so the part number you search for is BLM17B2M10116 not BLM17B2M10115.

I see them from companies in Asia for around $30-$40 US but I don't know what shipping would be.

None of my guys have it but I haven't heard back from a few yet.

 

Will a revision 1.6 board work to replace the revision 1.5 board? Probably, but you never know with this stuff so I wouldn't pay too much for it. I'd gamble $50US on it. But that's me, Mr Vegas, they call me :)

 

Hope this helps.

James

Is $18.75 worth the chance that it will work.

This site has a picture of the board, you can take a look and see if it is the same as yours.

 

If you click on the picture it enlarges and you can scroll vertically and horizontally to view the entire board.

 

If nothing else it looks like you can cannibalize the board for the broken part.

i took my current board to a computer shop, they're 'pricing it up' and going to tell me what it would be to repair it, Anything over £20 and I'll tell them to leave it for now, and try ordering the board you suggested - worth a gamble for around £12 delivered!

Woah! 4 months since I last posted, Well I haven't actually had much progress with this, I did take it to go and see what It would cost to be re-soldered, but the shop owner took my board and 4 months later still hasn't called always saying 'I'll call you next week' - Anyway, I took the advice you all gave me and ordered the board, luckly I had a full photo of the board, and using some photoshop-ery I checked if all the numbers matched on the board and all the components were the same. They are! 429880_10151519112330674_493213769_n.jpg

Board will be coming within 15-35 days! I'll upload images of my repair, fingers crossed, thanks for the help!
