Ok well heres the monitor I have:

LT7T7s Mag Innovision

Heres more info on it:

Well this is what happened, I wake up one morning to find that my monitor is not turning on. I had turned it off properly the night before. Well I figured maybe it was just the power cord. Made sure it was connected right.

But no use, then I decided to hook up my old CRT monitor to see if it wasnt the actual monitor. But the CRT worked fine. (thats what i'm using rite now)

Anyway, I opened it up to see inside even though I know nothing about LCD Monitors. I looked around, made sure the wires were connected and everything. Made sure the actual power button was ok. And when I put it back together, IT WORKED!!!!


Now while I was hooking it up, I accidentally pressed the power button, and WALAAA! it turns off and now were back to scratch.

So can anyone help me out here?

Monitor's should last longer than 2 years. You could see if it is under any type of warranty, if not then I would agree with Broni that it is time to purchase a new monitor.

You don't fix monitors, because the cost of the repair will always be higher, than the cost of brand new monitor.
