Default Lg flatron l1917s

Hey guys/girls,

I have an old LG L1917S which doesn't work (doesn't turn on nor the LED turns). I would like to repair it (as a project and to learn more, since it is an old LCD monitor).

I started by opening it, separate the power supply (AIP-0108) and the controller and check the power supply. The power supply seems to be all okay (fuse was ok, capacitors seem ok - C0204 can have a little bulge, not sure). Then i measure the outputs from the power supply (between GND and the pin). 5V had 4.998V (ok!) and 12V had 17.84V (it seems a value too high, but from what i read in other posts here in the forum, the 12V is not regulated without the controller connected -, so i guess this value is correct - correct me if i'm wrong).

Everything seemed ok. I then connected the controller to the power supply and something very strange happened. Measuring the 5V i now had 0.178V and the 12V rail was constantly decreasing in value from the 17.84V. When disconnecting the controller from the power supply, the problem persisted. If i disconnected the power supply from mains (230V) and reconnected (without controller) i had 5V and 17.84V, again, in the power supply's pins.

From what i have seen, the main problem from power supplies are the capacitors. My problem seems a capacitor problem? Also, can i use capacitors rated for 25V in my 5V rail (in the 5V rail they are rated to 16V and in the 12V rail for 25V)? I don't know any reason why not to use, but since i don't understand much about this system (power conversion).

Best regards
