Having problems with your Star Logic Monitor ?

Alright so, i've had the same monitor for the past 4 years, no problems at all (starlogic 17" LCD) and today it decides to start turning off and on, with a very distorted computer screen when it is on. now im sure its the monitor acting up and not the computer. i've heard that LCD monitors dont go out for 20 years, and im wondering if it could be just the power supply because it turns off and on without it connected to my computer.


Answers :

If you mean that it powers on and off without being connected to a computer, it could well be the power supply or the power switch. If you mean that the indicator lamp switches from amber to green without being connected to a computer, it could either be the power supply, or some of the signal-sensing circuitry.

\015\012Unless you're knowledgeable and handy, monitors are not generally considered field-serviceable or user-serviceable. The manufacturer probably won't even sell you the power supply directly - you'd have to go through a servicing company, and it will end up costing you around $100 (if not more) to repair your 4-year-old monitor.

\015\012Prices have come so far down that you might be better off just replacing the monitor. If you want an inexpensive alternative, my company sells refurbished 17" LCD monitors for $150, including free delivery in the continental US. If you'd rather take the opportunity to upgrade, we have 19 inchers for $225. Checkout MaverickSolutions.biz for more info; links to our pricing and products are on the third tab.
