Acer S243HL Monitor Repair

Unfortunately my monitor failed last week and it was the classic case of bad capacitors… You’d think manufacturers would have learned by now to avoid cheap Chinese capacitors, but it seems to still be a problem :(

The two capacitors that failed were Su’Scon SG Series 470uF 16v. There were a few more Su’Scon and Jamicon capacitors on the board that hadn’t bulged so I didn’t replace them. I did buy replacements for them just in case they fail in the future…

Here’s some high res photos if you’re interested in some more technical parts of the board.
