Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Monitor E15T4 ?

This monitor worked great for exactly one year from the purchase date. The day the one year warranty expired, this monitor completely went blank, and will not even turn on. An uncanny coincidence or a programmed obsolesence?


Answers :

I vote for both. It's an uncanny coincidence if eMachines last more than a year and they may be programmed to be obsolete shortly after that.

eMachines are not a fav of mine, and I certainly feel your anguish. Maybe your dealer can do something. It's worth a call.
