Question about Balance CM2017 17" Monitor
My adapter wont power my monitor on anymore so i tried another ac adapter and it powered it on but wouldn't show anything on the screen so is there a certain voltage level for input and output needed to power this balance monitor.
Father2gabe, Try this! With fully booted KNOWN GOOD pc displaying the win-desktop, reconnect suspect bad monitor to PC. Then and only then turn on the monitorand note what happens on screen. What happens if you point a bright flashlight (torch) at 2-4cm from screen??? Do you see the desktop screen even though the screen remains black?
Also do search on web to find out how lcd monitors get WHITE LIGHT to shine from the rear side to the front side!! Yes, your AC adapter must produce the same DC voltages as the original nonfunctional adapter-brick did!!! I would suspect that the VOLTAGE INVERTER BOARD inside the monitor is not now or will anytime soon, produce 800-1200v ac to light up the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes" (CCFL's) that are hung horizontally across the glass LCD panel. Get back to me with result of flashlight test. louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol.com

The specs for this monitor is a 60 Watt, 12 Volt, 5 Amp power adapter. The voltage must be the same. You can always get an adapter with a higher Amperage rating, but never get one with less, as this can overheat the adapter and damage it. I was not able to locate specs on whether the voltage to the monitor is DC or AC... most are DC. If this is the case, the observe the polarity at the monitor. Power adapters have a positive and a negative... center and outer contact, Make sure that the power adapter matches that of the monitor, else it will not work.
