Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

I purchased an SVA 2400w - BD monitor approximately 2 weeks ago, the monitor no longer powers on. I bought the item from tigerdirect.com. Can I send it in to be repaired under warranty or should I talk to the company I purchased it from?

Hi

\015\012Either!
\015\012
\015\012The correct chain is thru the company you bought it from as your first point of contact, but if you get no joy there there is nothing to stop you from taking it directly to the manufacurer. Just bear in mind a few points.
\015\012
\015\012*Just about all warranties are return to base - so you have to take the effort and cost to get it there thus your origional point of sale (POS) is the best place to start and sometimes they will bear the cost of the return.
\015\012
\015\012*You will need your proof of purchase by way of a receipt. Credit card/bank records do not constitute a proof of purchase but will help the company you bought it off provide you with a duplicate. If you payed cash and can not remember the date all bets are off - be nice to the staff that you are talking to because they are under no obligation to provide you with a duplicate (esp cash and no date).
\015\012
\015\012*Some manufacturers will acknowledge batch/serial numbers in lew of proof of purchase becuse these will demonstrate that the unit was manufactured within the warranty period.
\015\012
\015\012*Finaly this is not in reference to your current situation but a verry handy FYI. When you purchase an item or especialy a system you will often find that the supplier (POS) is only offering a 12 month warranty or charge you extra for a 24 month warranty. This is as we aussies say is money for jam. This is because the manufacturers often have significantly longer warranties for components they supply.
\015\012
\015\012Lets look at a system:
\015\012
\015\012Intel CPU - Lifetime warranty
\015\012Kingmax RAM - lifetime warranty
\015\012Seagate HDD - 5 year warranty
\015\012Mitsubishi CDRW, DVDRW, Floppy - 2 year warranty
\015\012Most Power Supplies - 2 year warranty
\015\012
\015\012Admitedly most board and adaptors are 12 months but not all.
\015\012
\015\012So you come in with a failed unit, they point at their receipt with the 12 month waranty notice (actualy illegal) sell you a new one (at profit) send the failed unit off for credit or replacement and put it on the floor for sale (more profit).
\015\012
\015\012Final Final Note: No warranty covers any kind of physical damage, power surges, water ingres or a unit being used for a purpose other than for which it was designed and opening or modifying a unit will also void warranty.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps.

My Kogi 17 inch monitor illuminates for 2 seconds and then the light goes out. The monitor is still on but hard to see. Each time you power cycle the monitor, the display appears normal for exactly 2 seconds and then goes off. I tried it with multiple computers and the display behaves the same. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.


This is known as a failed LCD inverter. If it has a warranty, I would recommend taking it back to where you purchased and request a replacement or get it repaired. Do you know if Kogi is the manufacturer, or is this made by another company, with Kog ... Kogi l7eh-ta ko 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
