Question about Dynex 19 in. LCD Flat-Panel HDTV
I've had thid computer monitor for about a year and a half with no problems. One day I went to check something on the computer and found the monitor completely dead, no power button light, nothing that made it seem plugged in (but it was). I've since been using my old 15" monitor but I miss the larger one. Is there anything I can do to fix it? I've been on websites that have forums with people complaining about bad Gateway monitors. They say Gateway ignores their complaints. Some have said that the problem is blown capacitors and that when they replaced them everything worked fine. I'm not very handy (soldering is probably out for me) so how much would a repair like this run me? Would I be better off trash canning this monitor and buying a new one? You can be sure it won't be a Gateway. If there's an easy solution I'd like to hear it. Any help would be greatly appreciated (for example, are there any reliable, low cost monitors?).
Ooooooo yeah there is .. its corrupt eeprom memory . if you find the eeprom for the micro on the main bord short pin 5 to pin 1 then plug it in and wait a few seconds and remov whatever your shorting it with . thee monitor will use default data to turn on and it will rewrite the eeprom with new data. i added a pair of wires that hang out the side of mine to do that when it needs it . about every eight months.. but first before you take it apart see if it might turn on in the service mode by pressing and holding "menu" and "power" if that works you can select the option clear NVM . which would clear the non volitle memory eeprm..
