I've read some comments on here but don't understand what the solutions are saying. I don't know anything about inverters etc. Can a monitor be fixed or replaced since it's only 7 months old? I think that's an extremely short lifespan for a monitor, especially since it's used only a few times a week for short times. Thank you the monitor is dead
