Question about Westinghouse 19" Widescreen Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I can jiggle the power cord & the monitor will come on or off. I proped a small box under the cord at the back of monitor. This is only a band-aid of course. Most of the time it holds & works. Does this necessary mean the problem is the power cord? I just happened on this website. I was on-line looking to buy a power cord, but it looks like this is pretty much a general problem with the product. With it being intermitent it would be hard for a repair shop to locate the problem @ $22.50. At this particular repair shop they didn't sell power cords.
The problem is either with the power cord itself (especially if it is connected to the monitor such that it stays bent all the time), or the problem might be with the socket into which the power cord plugs in the monitor. The solder joints fixing the power socket to the circuit board & connecting the power terminals to the circuitry usually tend to get loose after some period of usage either due to mechanical stress while connecting/disconnecting the power cord to/from the socket, or due to high currents passing through these joints continuously.
My suggestion is to test with a power cord which is known to work without problems. If this did not fix the problem, then the monitor will need service (monitor needs to be disassembled to a degree that permits re-soldering of the power socket's terminals to the circuit board).
