Broken IBM ThinkVision L150p 15"

  1. I have an old IBM ThinkVision L150p 15" that when i plug in the LED in the front will blink once green and there is a high pitch beep then nothing.... screen doesnt come on, LED isn't on... nothing

    I've tried two different power cords, 2 video cords, replaced both boards ( one that you plug power into and another you plug video input into) and still nothing...

    if anyone has any idea what might be going wrong please let me know.

    Sounds like blown caps inside the monitor
    If it does the same on another computer as well, then throw away or warranty return it, if it's covered by warranty

    It's not wise to repair this 15" screen
    Best to throw away

    You can of course try to fix it just for fun and experience, if it works, bonus :grinthumb
    Normally once a screen is found to be classed as dead, I advise to get another screen (ie safety reasons mainly)
