Hi,

 

I've caught the replace capacitors bug and I've recently saved a Samsung monitor from the dumspter by repalcing just 3 capacitors costing me all of $5 or $6 bucks.

 

Only now I've changed out 5 capacitors in an old Gateway FPD2185W with no luck. In fact the monoitor doesn't even turn on, no power at all?

 

What else may be wrong with this that I might be able to chage out and get it to work?

 

Thanks,

 

John

You sound like you know what you are doing, but have you tried more than one cable and outlet?

I have not, I'll try a different cable, the outlet works, I've plug other electronics into it.

 

Everything in the monitor looks good for the power source hokup, so I'm a little confused. I'll have to take another look inside too.

Electrical was never a strong suit of mine, so I have exhausted my options here :smash: Maybe another member can give some input.
