I can only find one that is 10pf, not 5. It is still 6kv and 5%.
Is this a big no-no? Or ok?
I just don't know enough, trying to save some $ by fixing my screen myself.
I removed a good one from another place on the same board and had it measured by a guy at the local electronics place.
He also mentioned that it may not be a capacitor at all, but also gave no suggestions as to how to find out.
In the mean time I went online and found a 5pf capacitor that is...
Thanks very much. I took it to a guy with a capacitance meter and it came out 5 Pico Farad. Unfortunately those are impossible to buy unless you get 2000 of them and wait 10 weeks for factory lead time. So I am buying a cheap LG board on Ebay which looks like it has similar components... for $15...
So I decided to fix my LG Flatron monitor and pulled the power+inverter combo board out.
The picture shows a normal board. Notice the blue component circled in Red, well that component is completely burned up on my board so I need to replace it. But how do I find a match? (I think it may...
