capacitor flat screen monitor

i got a free flat screen monitor. They said it worked, but it didn't when I got it home. It looks like one of the capacitors blew. So any of youts, i mean youths, know if radio shack carries high voltage ones?

looking at 400volt and 100UF

and if i find a 400v 150UF will dat fawk anything up?

yup

i looked on RS website and didn't see anything that high, but I use to have their catalog that had a huge selection of electronic components.

I'm going to call them up in the morning.


I want to go from viewing pron in CRT form to flatscreen.


My USED viewsonic crt monitor must be more than 6 years old and no quality issues. So I never upgraded. I just hate how CRT takes up so much room.

I have a viewsonic PF815 from 2000 that's still my preferred...

Still trying to figure out if a higher rated capacitance would be an issue... Not sure if like memory, a higher rated would still be (for the most part) OK in a lower rated system.....

It's supposed to give back what it's given and rated to a certain amount... just not sure (mathematically) if it will function the same in place of a 100uf.

Added: Brain's not in calculus mode at the moment and my eldest 2 are asleep who have this more fresh in their minds than I do...

still want to learn electronics.

saw the 150 on ebay, which the guy is selling for plasma tv. I know someone said high voltage didn't matter.


got a viewsonic Graphic Series G771, I picked up at the COD computer show, when they were still around.


I just remember from my big computer loving days, Viewsonic and NEC were top rating.

I'm just stuck on trying to remember if it will give back what it is fed, up to a certain rating (150uf) if it will functionally be equivalent to something rated lower and used at that lower capacity... or if it will have a discharge difference based on the ceiling limit... If the former, you should be good to go... but I'm just not certain if that's reality ATM... I blame the Bombay Sapphire Gin

youre going to need to match the capacity, as it could be used for timing.

as for voltage 400 will need to be matched or exceeded

Correct.....


The proper capacitance is related to frequency and voltage.


If you put the wrong one in, it will not attenuate the proper frequency.


So no, you need to find the correct value.

There's probably a reason that capacitor blew and simply replacing it might not do a whole lot of good, or at least not for long.

monitor works great

theres a slight shadow on the screen about 2 inches long, 90% of the time isn't noticable. Like someone might have pushed it in.
