Default Asus VH235T-P 2 seconds to black

Hi all,

A year or so ago, I got an Asus VH235T-P monitor from my nephew that had no video. After I replaced a couple of capacitors, it seemed fine, but not long after I put it back together, it started to have 2 seconds to black problem. I took the monitor apart and poked around for a while, but gave up.

Today I decided to revisit the monitor and after I powered it up, it's not showing the 2 seconds to black problem (yet). It's been running for an hour now and it's still ok. Why?

Any explanation why it would be working fine (so far) after this long hiatus?

Did you do a full capacitor change out and replaced with hi-quality caps? or the re is aloose connection or cold solder joint. Look especially at the LED Driver and LED backlight wiring.

I only changed out the bulged capacitors. And this monitor has a CCFL backlight, not LEDs.

EDIT: After turning it off and back on again, now it's displaying the 2 seconds to black problem.
