My monitor of about 3 years suddenly stopped
Probably not a fuse as many manufactures do not include them into the build this problem is most likely the back light that illuminates the screen giving it the brightness that we need to see the image and yes they can be replaced but it would not rate as a simple job because you need to dissemble the entire screen and unless it is a very large good quality screen most people would just replace it. There are a few tests you can do to see if you can at least identify the problem before replacing the screen and that is making sure that the issue is not in the PC itself to test this you will need to hook up the PC to a TV or a different screen ,most Laptops and PC s have a option to hook up extra screens etc so you need to use this method to test out your machine , second if you turn on your system and wait for the normal amount of time that it takes for your screen to work and look at your screen in a darkened room and hold it at various different angels to see if you can see a very slight image of what is on your screen and if you can see any sort of printed information this will mean that your screens back light has failed .

The Camera and monitor have been working fine
I just fixed the same exact system today witch i bought at a local thrift store. I did nt know if it worked or not but I am a tier 3 tech for largest call centers trained in computers Tvs and wirless etc. So i like to find these sort of things and see what makes them tick..
The one i got today was a SUMMER SJ126104 exactly like the one U have but only 2 channels not 3.
First question for u is does the camera or monitor have any lights come on showing it is getting power? The camera has a green light above the lens and monitor has green and red lights below in blue area. I found that the camera did power up but the monitor didnt show any lights or make sound or responded. I did a quick check and found that the monitor power cord had juice but no response. Now I dont recommend doing this yourself because unless ur trained and know what and how to protect yourself and other possible dangers from shock or causing fire hazzards that could put you and your precious little one at RISK..
This info is for just that INFO not repairs..OK? I opened up the monitor on my grounded protected tech bench and checked out first is it getting power on to the MB power grid from power pin..YES it was..next I checked and found a 5volt glass in breaker and with a mag glass and circut checker it had blown out ..and could see the wire broken inside so no power reached the board. Now this is the reason i dont want u to do this yourself..if that circet had been tripped and blown it did so since its job was to portect the rest of the board from being damaged or fire. thats what there there for. so dont try to replace it since something went wrong that caused this to short out.
So i want you to think about is this worth taking in and having it chked and if so fixed..or better to be safe and figure on getting another one because of the fact u dont want to let a few dollars buying new one over taking a chance that this one is unsafe..
Ill follow this and if u have any questions or better a solutions comes about please post for me..
