Question about Computer Monitors
I accidentally plugged a class 2 transformer, 6v (to power speakers) into the back of my monitor (Dell 2007WFP widescreen), where it said speaker power. Well I only plugged the round part into the monitor, I did NOT plug the ac adapter into the wall socket, but after a few seconds the monitor started to flicker and it went out. Now the whole monitor, green light, display everything will not work. I now realize the monitor was outputing 12v dc for speakers not needing the external power like I thought and was giving it. The class 2 transformer was warm and i unplugged it but the damage is done. My question is how do I get this fixed? I took the monitor apart to look at the circuit boards and see if i could find a burnt component but no luck. The fuses seem ok on the PCB. What can I do? Can Best Buy fix this type of problem??
Yes, If you have it sent in for repair they may be able to do it. Geek Squad would not be able to do it in the store. Although in most cases it is more costly then a new monitor. If it is still under warranty I would try and do it that way.
