Viewsonic VX910 no power, repaired

Recently did a repair on a Viewsonic VX910 that had no power, no standby LED, totally dead. Upon opening the monitor I could see that someone had already replaced all the electrolytic capacitors in the output filter circuitry, but for this type of failure I normally don't suspect the filter capacitors anyways. I plugged the monitor in to check for any output voltages from the PSU and I could here a faint chirping coming from the power supply, this is always a good indication of a shorted output diode or faulty components in the feedback circuitry, the power supply is continually trying to start up and then shutting down,over and over. As I suspected there was no output from the power supply. I pulled the power supply and the first thing I checked was the dual schotttky diode D660 and one of the diodes in the dual package was shorted. The original diode was a MBR10100CT dual schottky diode, I replaced it with a B20100G dual schottky diode. After replacing the dual diode the monitor powered on and worked once again.
