Default HP S2331 good ole 2-seconds-then-black

Landlady came to my door because her computer wasn't working. Simple diagnosis - her monitor had died. It would show the picture for a moment then die. We replaced it with a much newer monitor but now I have the old one.

Took it apart and replaced bulged capacitors with random used ones I had floating around. The capacities are a bit higher but I figured it would be OK? Guess not? Because it does the exact some thing.

Is it doomed or should I try to find closer matching caps?

Thanks.

Well, this no longer matters, I accidentally knocked the monitor off my desk and the panel is smashed.

Cap values would have probably been ok. Many times the 3-seconds-to-black is a dying CCFL tube drawing higher current and causing the shutdown....but since you kilt it with blunt force trauma, I suppose it's moot.
