Question about Computers & Internet

My monitor is not working at all. This is the second monitor I have had that I have purchased from Best Buy in a matter of eighteen months. I am very frustrated. What do I need to do to get this issue resolved. I called Best Buy and absolutely got nowhere with them. They said they can send it off and get it fixed and have it returned in four to six weeks. I pay my bills online and this is not acceptable!!!!!

You need to go over their heads and call Best Buy Corporate.

This is what I had to do to get anything done with a defective Ipod, all because the knucklehead at the store didn't switch the extended warranty over to the new unit.

Trying to deal with the dozen or so "managers" at Best Buy is a complete waste of time.

This is the number I used, but i'm unsure of their office hours.:


choose option 1 (if you want english)

Then choose option 2 to speak to a person who will direct your call.

Tell the person you want to speak with 'customer care' regarding multiple problems and replacements with a product, and getting the "run around" from the store employees.

Be sure to have the store telephone number, and / or address / store number, as well as any 'managers' names you spoke too handy, as they will ask.

Also have any and all sales / exchange receipts.

Tell them your story, you will be surprised at how far it gets you. The guy I spoke was so appalled at how I (and himself when he called the store on 3 way) was treated, that not only did he personally issue a credit in my name at the local store to get a new ipod, but he sent me a gift card in the mail for the total value of the Ipod. I'm pretty sure someone at that store got fired too...

Good luck, and try to refrain from flipping out on the guy on the other end, he's there to help!

that the problem with an online store, they can hardly cater the support on their product. You know if you try to fix that problem you can do but you need tester to test the blownout parts. maybe that only a matter of fuse busted. in that case i will suggest you to see service tech in your area so that the monitor will be troublshoot thoroughly. melnavz

Would this monitor be covered on any warranty? I cannot find my receipt. When powered on, the screen stays black.

The warranty is 36 months parts and labor. If you have and the monitor longer than that it will not be covered. If you have had it less time than that, you can normally get a copy of the receipt from the place of purchase (example Best Buy). If you purchased an extended warranty from vendor (example Best Buy), you should be able to take it back to them for repair or replacement.

I hope this helps

Purchased an Acer Monitor with a bad pixel what do i do?

Pixels cannot be fixed no matter what Best Buy tells you, and it's not anything you did. Each pixel has a little transistor behind it and they go out sometimes. Take it back for a refund or exchange.

I received a X2gen monitor , model MG19E, from Best Buy warranty service. This monitor was replacement for a previous monitor that went out. I only had the X2gen monitor for just a few months and now it...

It depends. When a company replaces a component that is in warranty with another component, the only warranty that transfers is the remainder of the warranty on the original product. So if I had a monitor with a three year warranty, and it stopped working after 2 years and 11 months, the company replaces it with a brand new monitor. That brand new monitor will only carry a one month warranty because that's all the warranty you had left.

That being said, make sure you let BB know that this was a replacement monitor for one that was under warranty. They may need the original monitor's specifications to look it up for you.

My monitor turns itself off

If it's only a few months old then send it back under warranty.
The fault you have is the inverter circuit.

Hope that helps. =)
