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

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

how long were you expecting an electronic warranty to be?

it might just be some bad caps or something in the power supply, but it could also be a problem with the backlight or at least the backlight has 3 years of use on it.

if you can fix it yourself, its probably cheaper than buying one, but since you can buy one for like 150 bucks unless its a real high end monitor, no one is probably going to be interested in trying to fix it if you are only going to put 50 bucks into it.

It's probably just your backlight going out. Hold a bright light up to the screen and you should be able to barely see things. Best bet, like has been stated, is to just get a new one. Monitors are pretty cheap now.

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.


You would think, but usually that is not the case.

But then, wouldn't the power on light still come on?

Yeah, the problem you described sounds like capacitors. If the power light came on but the screen stayed black then it would probably be the backlight. Chances are if you pay someone to fix it it'll be $80 for opening it up, $10 in parts, and then $30 for every hour it takes to finish the job.

(actually I'm just pulling numbers out of thin air, though the capacitors themselves are relatively cheap)

I'm guessing the power supply. Is it like my old LG where it has a power brick? If so replace that. IF the monitor itself was had I assume it would show a sign...

No, no power brick. Just the cord.
