For the last week or so my old Iiyama 17in monitor has been shutting off randomly, today it gave up completely, not wanting to spend money on a new one, or go without I set about fixing it.

After stripping it and carefully inspecting the components it was noted that 2 of the capacitors on the power supply had domed tops, being fairly certain this was the problem I set about replacing them with higher voltage parts.

After the above the screen worked as new, and a friend who has the same monitor who has also started having the same issue followed my instruction and fixed it too.

Much cheaper, and far more satisfying that buying a new unit.
