How to fix a monitor power board

Something a little different in this post!  After period of being sluggish to power up, my LG finally packed in and failed to turn on altogether.  This is a common problem, the capacitors in the power board fail (cheapo components presumably).

I didn’t much feel like throwing away a perfectly good monitor and forking out for a new one (besides, 1920×1200 monitors seem hard to come by these days, they’re mostly 1920×1080, I need those extra pixels damn it!)  So, time to get out the soldering iron and have some fun!
