SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER 940N BACKLIGHT ISSUE

by bigs31 / January 31, 2012 1:47 AM PST
Cool Hi i have a syncmaster 940n 19 inch monitor and have turned my laptop on and noticed the screen stays black and when i press the screen options button i can see the faint shadow of the options box so therefore worked out my problem is the backlight.....after taking the monitor apart i noticed that the capacitors inside are buldged on top which means theyve blown or combusted to the heat of the inside of the monitor..there are 3 in a row and the number next to them is c301 on the circuit board ...my question is what kind of capacitors do i need to replace these with because i cant see the name of them due to some substance that is glued to them and other components on the circuit board so until i can get them off i wont know what i need.......have i got the right capacitors for the backlight ????not a technician myself lol samsung have told me due to the repair service they run they couldnt tell me what i need because its obviously losing them money.......if anyone could help with this please reply .thank you .....
