Broken power connector

Any idea where to get a replacement connector for the special power lead used with this monitor? Everything is ok with this monitor except some idiot knocked into this lead plugged into the "white brick" and smashed the plug.

Re: broken power connector

I do, but it's not reccomended, and it severely dangerous as you would have to discharge the display...which if you decide to do, may lead to ingesting High voltage....not reccomended.

I just moved my Acer 19" monitor and everything went off. I checked all the connections but it is not turning on. any suggestions?

Check the VGA lead, it is possible that when moving the monitor, you damaged one of the pins that connects in the socket on the monitor, remove the lead and also inspect the socket if there is a broken pin inside it remove this and try a new vga lead.

If no pins are broken and / or the power is not even reaching the monitor, check the kettle lead, look for signs of damage to the rubber / plastic plug and the socket on the monitor (assume this one is fed directly from the mains?), If you have been unfortunate enough to have damaged one of the pins that is in the socket you will need a TV repairman to fix this.

Check also the condition of the lead itself, for breaks and whether the fuse in the plug has blown.

After that, your problem will need to be looked at by a qualified TV repairman, as the fault must lie on the board itself

There is no power to the monitor,it is not coming on when i start up computer

If the AC plugs directly into the monitor, try reseating the power cable or replacing. If the monitor uses a power supply (ac adapter brick) check that the power cable is fully inserted in the brick and the dc connector is fully plugged into the monitor. Also check the dc connector for bent or broken pins.

My samsung syncmaster 914v isnt working when i plug it in and turn it on all it does is flicker every like 10 seconds

Ok, a few basic things to check/try.
  1. What colour is the power LED, does it change when the screen flickers?
  2. Is the power cable firmly seated.
  3. Is the monitor cable firmly seated.
  4. Try another power lead.
  5. Take a look at the plugs on the monitor lead, does it look like there are any bent/broken pins.
  6. Again, try another monitor lead.
  7. Try connecting the monitor to another pc.
If none of these have any effect, you'll need to take it in somewhere to get it looked at.

My monitor is not showing red colors? how do i fix

There is a number of possible reasons why your monitor lost the red color. A good guess, however, is a broken cable or connector. Check the plug and socket of the cable for bend or broken pins. If everything looks OK, try to change for a different cable.
If the problem persists, a pin of the connector soldered to the PCB internally may be broken. This is an easy repair for a service technician but I really recommend you do not do it yourself.

No Signal Detected

Is this on a notebook or on your regular PC?The answer will determine what the solution is. You can first check to see if the little pins on the plug are all straight and none are bent or broken. If one of he pins is bent then you can try gently straighten it (unplug the monitor from the wall first) If any of the pins are broken then either the cable needs to be replaced or the monior has to be replaced.

Dell ultrasharp 15 inch flat panel lcd has no power and does not turn on at all

Disconnect the monitor from the computer, then turn it on. You should see three bands of color (red, green, and blue), which is the self-test feature of the monitor. If you can see all three colors, the monitor itself is probably OK, and it will mean that you need to check the connector on the monitor cable, the connector on the back of the videocard in the back of the computer, or reseat the videocard itself. One of the connectors could be damaged, or you could have a bent, broken, or missing pin within the connector. If a pin is bent and touching the shell of the connector, it can send the video signal to ground, making the monitor appear to be dead. BE VERY CAREFUL if you try to straighten the pin; they are fragile, and if you break the pin off completely, you will have even more problems to deal with... If one or two of the color bands are not visible, the LCD monitor is defective, and you'll have to decide whether it is cheaper to repair it, or simply to replace it... If you still can't locate the problem after checking the system as I've described, get another monitor to test the computer with. If the second monitor works properly, you most likely have a problem with the Dell LCD; if the problem still exists after switching monitors, then you most likely have a problem with the computer, and NOT with the Dell monitor...

No power to monitor

Your problem is really multiple problems. One is if the monitor blew out, the second is weather it damaged the computer when it went, the third is if the computer went first killin the monitor. I would first see if your computer is ok by turning it on with out any monitor connected and listen to hear if it sounds as usual. If not something may be wrong with your computer. If everything is ok plug in another monitor (borrow from a freind if you do not have a spare) and see that the computer is ok. If it's ok great but if there is a problem with the computer that is a whole new question.Next if the monitor's on light does not come on and you know it has power the monitor is most likely fried. Hope this helps and could use more details
