I have recently watched this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mFUTpvetjM about making your own Monitor
I have a BenQ EW2740 https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/066572f
It is an older monitor but I want to at least save the panel, it has 100% sRGB color space, 3000:1 static contrast, wide viewing angles and low input lag
My problem is that the monitor is beginning to fail. it has a touch button to turn on the display and I am having issues like described here https://www.justanswer.com/electronics/4i9nm-samsung-syncmaster-2494hd-monitor-touch-buttons.html & http://www.fixya.com/support/t17504357-lg_monitor_will_not_turn
Basically it just doesn't turn on or do anything when I touch the button to turn it on.
So my issue is probably bad capacitors.
I can get the monitor to turn on with more success after I leave it unplugged, allowing it to discharge the capacitors and turning it on quickly after I plug it in again.
I took the monitor apart and looked at the back of the panel, there is a box very much like the one Linus used when making his Monitor in the video (didn't take photos unfortunately but I will do it again)
What I wanted to know is if I could replace that box myself with a generic one, would I lose anything by not using the official BenQ component?
would I need to re calibrate the color?
I am fairly sure it's not the external power adapter as I bought a new one and the issue still happens
It just does not turn on when touching the button, but it does sometimes turn on after I leave it unplugged
Replacing the capacitors myself seems too dangerous, difficult and not worth while.
I would love any assistance or advice anyone can give in regards to using the panel from my BenQ monitor with a new adapter / controller.
