Computer monitor won't turn on.

by nate2d / February 18, 2008 9:55 AM PST

My computer monitor(Envision EN9250)just stopped working on me. It won't turn on and I've used different cords so that's not the problem. What may be wrong with it and how do I go about getting it fixed? Thanks Happy

Tried Testing It?

Assumming that you've already replugged in the cables to ensure there are no connection issues...then first, borrow a known "good" monitor and hook it up to your current computer to make sure it's not an issue with your machine.. If the borrowed monitor works, then the Envision may be dead.. But it's still worth taking one more step...

Next, take the Envision to a different known "good" computer and plug it in.. If it doesn't work on the second computer, your culprit is clear.

Hope this helps.

I hooked up my older LCD monitor and it works fine. I also tried the monitor on another computer and still nothing.

So does this mean there is nothing I can do?

I agree with Grif Thomas, its time to spend money and get a new monitor for you?..As I learned that this monitor is really very old and the part in question seems hard to find solution it may not be possible to get it repaired, so I would suggest you to go for a new monitor. If you would like to guide you on various options available, please do let me know, Ican help you out in getting one for you, as I have recently procured one for me?.
