My LG W2442PA monitor failed this AM.

4 out of 5 capactors bulging. Same as a few youtube videos.

Australia, being a small buyer base, I was not going to spend a week and lots of miles to get new capacitors.

 

I ordered an AOCG2460PF Gaming monitor. Reviews are good for gaming. About a hundred dollars more than in the US.

 

First, my water pump and then my monitor. What next? :rtfm:

Maybe.

First I would have to unsolder them and get a big magnifying glass to read them. And Australia is a small tech client base, so maybe not.

I decided to go new. This new monitor is supposed to be up to 144hz. So far it is 1920 X 1080 at 60hz. Probably needs a driver (on the disc) to go higher than 60hz.
