    Just a question will a monitor's light come on just plugged into the electrical outlet without being hooked up to a pc or does it have to be installed to a pc to turn on?

It depends on the monitor, but usually a monitor's power light will come on if it is plugged into the mains. All the monitors I've used will power up to orange light with just the power supply, then once a signal is received from an active PC the light will change color to green.

All the monitors I've used can also be powered off and on with either a touch switch, toggle switch or push switch though, and if the switch is set wrongly then the power light may not come on.

Monitor won,t wake up from sleep mode

Open monitor and look at power supply board for capacitors which are "balooning" or deformed in any way. These look like cylindars on the board. These tend to dry out and make what you are describing occur. Replacing them usually fixes about 80% of the problem you are describing. Those parts run about $0.25 to $0.75 each.. well worth trying, right?

Was dusting monitor and computer area and now monitor won't come on. Have checked all connections.

I've experienced similar problems and the power button gets dust in it and it stops working. Try 'flicking' the power button to see if it clears it, that's what I do.
hold the power button firmly closed then suddenly release it - I use the edge of my nail to hold it closed.

Hi! Ive bought an Asus LS246h today and it won't start. Ive checked all cables and Ive got power on the power plug. None of the lights at the monitor are working! Is my monitor defect?

Hello there,
It looks like you have a faulty monitor. Make sure the power is plugged in at the computer and a working all socket. Make sure that the Box on the power cord is connected properly. Make sure that the connections to the computer and secure and that the computer is turned on. If none of these things fix the monitor, I recommend returning it and getting it replace.
I hope this has helped! Thumbs up are much appreciated.
