Can flickering LCD Monitor Sharp LL-172G-B be repaired?
High quality 17" LCD monitor, solidly built with cast aluminum height-adjustable stand. Has worked well for years, but just started flickering exactly like a typical fluorescent bulb at the end of its life. Probably the backlight fluorescent tube, but could be its power supply.
I hate to throw out such a quality piece of electronics, especially when I compare it with the flimsy plastic new ones.
It looks as if the monitor would be easy to open up (4 phillips screws). But there is no point unless it is possible to replace the failing part, very likely a cold cathode fluorescent tube. I'm not afraid to unsolder an old one and solder in new if that turns out to be needed; I've done a lot of electronic soldering.
Is this a good question?
