Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a ViewSonic VE175 monitor, which has a damaged monitor cord; some of the pins have broken off. Is it possible to repair or is not cost effective and that I should go and purchase a new monitor. Regards Michael Smith


Answers :

This is a sad way for computer manufacturers to get you to buy another monitor when the cord is bad. Some monitors have detachable cords that you can purchase at many big box stores for a reasonable price.

\015\012The short answer is no - the average person cannot repair this themselves UNLESS you have a familiarization of electronics and know what to buy and repair on the back of the monitors.

\015\012This takes a lot of time out of your day to replace a monitor cord thats permanently fixed to the back of the montior.
\015\012
\015\012My long term solution to you is go and purchase yourself a flat panel monitor which has dropped in price, and make sure you have a detachable cord on that model so you can easily replace it in the future should it becomed damaged.
