What should i do??

by smo1898 / August 21, 2014 5:55 AM PDT

I have an i-inc il272 lcd monitor that isnt turning on at all, no lights or sound. I opened it up looking for a bulging capacitor but found nothing. I of course have tried different plugs, cords, and outlets to no avail. What should i do in terms of troubleshooting the monitor? I have a multimeter but its a cheap one and not digital so if that could be useful please let me know.
thanks in advance

Didn't find a service manual.

This means I scout on ebay or other places for another monitor. Without a service manual, how to know what voltages to expect where?

does it run from an adapter?

Have you tried a different adapter of the same voltage and watt rating? Have you used your multimeter to test the adapter? Local thrift shops and computer recycle places often have plenty of $20-40 monitors, especially the older 4:3 ratio which are 17-19" size.
