Repair a LG L2000C Monitor

As I mention in my previous post I now have 3 broken monitor that should be easy to fix.

Two of the monitors are a LG L2000C monitors. They have a resolution of 1600x1200 and are using a IPS panel with good viewing angle. That makes them very good for the edge locations in a multi monitor setup.

The Pile Of Broken Monitors.

You can not have to many monitor, and when programming you need at least two to be efficient so at my developing machine at home I got three. Because three is always better then two.

I had a LG Flatron L246WH that is 24" with the resolution of 1920x1200, And the I had two LG L2000C 20" with the resolution of 1600x1200 and last two are also IPS panels with good viewing angle that is really good for monitor that are at the edges in a multi-monitor setup.

The nice thing about the screens is that they all are 1200 pixel in height. Almost all newer cheaper monitors are only 1080 in height and the extra 120 pixel in height is really nice and I really prefer it.

Then 1.5 year ago (Around March or April in the year 2011) the bigger of them, The 24" screen started to acting up. When start it up the power light was blink for a while before it started. And the time it was blinking before actually showing a picture got longer and longer. After around a month it took 3-4 minutes for it to start. And one day the monitor would never stop blinking, It did not start.
