Hey guys I was defragging my hd when I went into my room to have a smoke. when I came back the monitors power was off and all my attempts to make it come back on have been futile. It seems no power is even going into the monitor. I can't replace the power cord as it is hardwired into the back of the monitor... I've tried plugging it into another computer to see if it would work, but it doesn't even turn on. Kinda like it shorted or something. Anyone have any idea why, for no reason, my monitor ceases to work? Help!

A long time, it's been here for a couple years. They just "quit" working??? I'm pretty F*cking pissed this happened the same day I was going to buy a hub... Now I can't play 4 player 1602.... I blame the liberal media. [soapbox]

I doubt anything is shorted. Maybe a blown PS or something. Probably cheaper to just get a new one than have it fixed.

Whats the point of replying? His monitor is toast! He can't read our responses!

Old monitors make good targets

Just buy a new one... Fixing them is to pricey. www.pricewatch.com

cmon, the flyback transformer won't hurt that much. I used to do factory refurb for compaq 20" monitors. Mine died after 5 years of abuse. I just bought a 19" envision w/ rebate for $150. The Compaq it replaced was $1500. Just as nive, much smaller pace user. Go get a new one. TXLEWIS

They have a fuse inside them. Rip it apart and check it. If it is then cheap fix if not just put the target back together![:D][50] Bigdozer66

Fuzes blow for a reason, usually a short. Just replacing fuzes rarely fixes anything.

Well the monitor I am using blew the fuse about a year ago and it is still humming today! It is more likely that it was a power fluctuation that caused the amp draw to increase. You just never know...He may be looking for a reason to buy a new one! BigDozer66

That's why you use a penny or a piece of safety wire... [x]
