Well, when I went to bed both monitors were working...

#1SlashmanSGPosted 7/28/2014 11:54:58 PM
Now I wake up and the 2nd monitor won't even turn on. It's been turning itself off the past 2-3 nights, I've had to press the button to turn it back on again in the morning which I never had to do, but now it won't come back on, no power light, nothing.

Is there any way I can check what's going on? I don't know much about monitors besides plugging them in and setting the rez.

What's your monitors model? If it's a different model,
I would check the settings and make sure it isn't set to power off after X of minutes.

It's an LG W2061TQ, but like I said, I've had this thing for years and it's never done this before, I didn't change any settings. And even if I did, the power button should turn it back on.

Try a different power outlet, samething happened to me but with my sound system, switching the port fixed it for whatever reason

This happened with my old monitor
Kept turning itself off at night or just after a few hours of use, eventually it stopped turning back on after I pressed the button to turn it on.

Tried new power cables, outlets, etc and basically just assumed it was dead. So I decided to have fun and shot it with bullets

Tried 4 other outlets, no dice. Still dead.

Sadly, I would say it's time for a new monitor.

And of course, LG's warranty only lasts for 3 years.

I have an LG that did this to me pretty much... I believe the cause is some weak ass capacitors. Once those wear out, it stops working. It's possible to open it up and carefully remove and replace the capacitors if you're handy with a soldering iron but I wouldn't try it unless I knew exactly which ones were bad.

Check that video to see the kind of thing you're looking for.

Well I sent their customer service and email, not hoping for much but maybe they can help me out a little. Even if I have to pay to repair it it'll probably still be cheaper than buying a brand new monitor.
