Question about Computer Monitors
LG 1718S-BN, power light off; monitor won't display. LG has asked me to send it back in the original box. The problem is I can't get the base and stem to separate from the screen. It was so easy to put together. Why is it so damn hard to take apart? Talked to company, they sent instructions, still no go. What now?
I know this may seem simple to you, and I'm not talking about the power light. Your monitor tilts up and down at the top of the stem connected to the base. At the top, where the stem connects to the back of the monitor is the hinge that allows the monitor to tilt up and down and it should be covered in plastic. You should be able to see what looks like a metal rod going through the stem and the monitor. If you squeeze together the plastic on both sides, they should come off to reveal the screws that hold the stem to the monitor.
As far as the power goes ... my first thought is a fuse (won't turn on and no power LED) or something has blown your power supply.
After you get it open let me know what you see.
