If you see bulged capacitors, treat the power supply as if the capacitors are holding a residual charge.

In most cases, the filter capacitor is okay. It MUST be discharged if being replaced.

The black screw (marked in Blue) is a ground screw and only fits here. DO NOT LOSE IT.

Only lift the power supply board at a slight angle. Lifting it any more then this could result in pin or video processing board damage.

If you cannot find the original capacitors, it is safe to substitute for greater value parts. It is not necessary to match the capacitors used by the factory.

This capacitor is only used on older power supply boards. If your board has this capacitor, replacement is recommended, but not required unless there is obvious bulging or leakage.

With the power supply shield removed from the monitor, identify the power supply. Along with the capacitors previously mentioned, take note of any additional capacitors that were not mentioned (Ex: inverter coil).

Remove the 4 screws from the power supply. Once this is done, lift the power supply up at a slight angle to clear the mounting holes on the monitor chassis for removal.
