Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

I never turn off my monitor, just my computer. Over the weekend, the monitor started shutting off when I turned off the computer and it would take several tries to turn it back on. After 3 days of this, the monitor finally just would not turn back on at all. I hardly ever used my on-off button on the computer, so that should not be worn out. I bought the whole set-up in January of 2006. Help!


Answers :

First, check all connections to see if they are snug. Something could be loose.

I'm wondering if your computer system is plugged into a power surge protector / power strip. If so, that could be causing your power problems, also.

Power off / on the power strip to see if the monitor problem resolves.

If not, plug the monitor's power connector directly into an outlet.

If you are still experiencing problems with your monitor, the power connector could be faulty.

Hope this helps.
You should have turned off your monitor,it being on al the time has burned something out. Cheaply made electronics will eventually over heat and fail. even brand name computer products have been using cheap defective capacitoris from China, which result in whole product lines failing.
\015\012Is this a no name monitor or a brand name?
\015\012Check if it is under warranty or buy sn inexpensiver replacement. Repairs will cost you as much as a new one.
