Default Dell E171FP, GH15/17 Cap Values

I have a Dell 17" LCD monitor with capacitors missing from locations C14, C15, C16, C17, C18, and C19.
The power/inverter board is a GH15/17/18 rev. 1.
Can someone provide the original capacitor values for me?
I can't find a diagram or parts list.
Thank you,

Hopefully someone can help you.

Having said this, are you sure that capacitor locations should be occupied?

I am much more familiar with computer motherboards, and what happens quiet often with them is that they use the same PCB for various similar models of a motherboard. Therefore one model would have some components missing (including capacitors) due to a particular feature not being present (which is dependant upon a chip which was not placed on the board). Sometimes there are last minute changes to design and they are left unoccupied.

Would you post a good size pic of the board?

Board model numbers usually don't mean much as many different PSU's are used in these units. A picture is more likely to trigger someone's memory.

One picture is worth a thousand words. It is unlikely that anyone is going to open up a bunch of 17" Dell monitors to see which one has this particular power supply / inverter board. Posting a picture increases the chance that someone will recognize it.

Dang!!! Toasty beat me to it!

Sorry for the delay. Here are 2 PICs of the power/inverter board.

Hmm, no pictures. Please try again. The pictures have a size limitation of 2000x2000px (I believe).

Probably the inverter. This has been mentioned twice in this thread: We REALLY can't help you unless you are willing to give us some pictures, top and bottom of both the power supply and the inverter if you would.

I have the same board. GH15/17 rev 3. The IC1 has exploded and I can't get any numbers off of it. I need to know if someone has one and will give me the numbers so I can replace it. The 100uf 400v cap is buldging and both fuses are blown. Please help. Thanks inadvance for all. This is the first time I have posted here but have read many posts. The people here on this site have helpped my correct numerous problems just by reading what is posted.

2nd picture in this post shows it.

The "rest" of the thread might be helpful too

I saw the second picture and it does show me the top of IC1 but I need the numbers off of the front of the FET.
