Re: monitor

That means: find a trusted repair shop. It will be cheaper if you still have warranty.

No make or model.

Did you try the generic reset noted in the CNet Troubleshooting forum?

In short, remove AC, battery, hold power button for 60 seconds, let go, slip in battery, apply AC, try again.

That helps many times.

It's a tech trick that you now know to keep handy.

You can also mark my answer as the one if you wish.
