hi. my sister's 19" lcd monitor was working perfectly fine...until one day she complains to me that it stopped working.
when i try to turn her computer and monitor on, the boot up screen starts for 3 seconds then the screen flickers and turns to black. i've tried to turn the monitor off and then on again. i see an image for 3 seconds but then it turns to black again. It's still under warranty so i'm wondering if its the monitor's problem, i can can send it back.

Also, another question. Is it harmful or beneficial to leave your lcd monitor turned on at all times? somebody told me that it was beneficial, but i'm not sure. Thanks in advance.

Hi. Try the monitor on another computer so we can see which device has the issue. Also, I don't see how leaving it on all the time could be good, but that's not my area of expertise :whistling:

Well, I'm not a monitor specialist, but it sounds like the screen is may be dead :whistling:

Make sure your monitor is plugin all the way to your computer.

Very good. Have the manufacturer replace it, and let us know how things work once your new monitor comes. :whistling:
