My LG Flatron L227WTG has stopped working. The screen is black and the power button blinks very deem, to a point where you can barely see it, and doesn't turn on. From what I read, it seems like I need to replace the capacitors- but because this is something I don't know how to do myself I will be taking it to a shop-if I decide to fix.
What I wanted to ask is: being a 6yr old monitor, is it worth fixing it and how much should I expect to pay? If it is a better idea to buy new, what is the cheapest (due to being at a tight budget) monitor that I can get, yet that will have better specs/picture quality than my LG? I use it heavily for gaming and video viewing, and I have been very happy with my monitor (and its 2ms response).
Should I buy new (which one?) or is it worth repairing? Thanks in advance
I've replaced parts in an LCD monitor before (Westinghouse brand, can't remember the model number), and I'll tell you this: The scariest part of it was plugging it back in after I was finished working with it. I wasn't sure if it would turn on or turn to flambe!
It would probably be easier to replace the monitor instead of fixing it. A new one would probably have a better screen resolution.
