Question about Summer Infant Babys Day and Night Video Monitor

1 Answer

My monitor of about 3 years suddenly stopped working today. No hints of it dying - I went to turn it on today, and it just wouldn't go. No video, no audio - totally dead. There appear to be no loose connections, no problems with the AC adapter or the outlet. Is this something I can fix? Perhaps a fuse or something?

Probably not a fuse as many manufactures do not include them into the build this problem is most likely the back light that illuminates the screen giving it the brightness that we need to see the image and yes they can be replaced but it would not rate as a simple job because you need to dissemble the entire screen and unless it is a very large good quality screen most people would just replace it. There are a few tests you can do to see if you can at least identify the problem before replacing the screen and that is making sure that the issue is not in the PC itself to test this you will need to hook up the PC to a TV or a different screen ,most Laptops and PC s have a option to hook up extra screens etc so you need to use this method to test out your machine , second if you turn on your system and wait for the normal amount of time that it takes for your screen to work and look at your screen in a darkened room and hold it at various different angels to see if you can see a very slight image of what is on your screen and if you can see any sort of printed information this will mean that your screens back light has failed .

30" apple cinema display suddenly went blank.


It's probably the backlight. If you look very closely, perhaps using a flashlight, you might be able to see that it is still working but just not being lit up from the back. In that case it may be worth fixing, but if not, then it's probably past its useful life.
One other thing you might try is a different power supply.

My sunbeam mixmaster is about 40 years old and suddenly stopped working


The running capacitor finally died. I used to be their factory service tech. You can change it easily by removing the back knob and the handle. The screws are under the silver buttons. The capacitor looks like a 3/4 x 1 1/4' tube with a small nib sticking out each end.

The charge adapter maybe faulty.
If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

I had two ViewSonic's that did the same thing right around 2 year as well. They worked really well for me and then just died.
I found out the first one had a faulty power cord, and the second one just wouldn't turn on at all.
I think there's a good chance that your monitor bit the big one just based on my experience with the brand. I would recommend taking it in to your local computer repair shop and let them take a look at it. If it is 2 years old then it is probably out of the manufacturer's warranty unfortunately. I hope this helps answer your question :(
Thanks for using FixYa.

Since you have tried another monitor with your computer, then we can only assume that your LCD monitor had gone bad.
If the light is green but you can't see anything on the screen, then most likely the backlight has gone bad. Unless you want to take the monitor apart, I would suggest buying a new monitor.

Computer boots fine but the monitor is blank


if the monitor works fine on your laptop, the problem definitely is at the computer, possibly with the video card (if it is using one). it could have loose connection, or parts might have damages. it seems the problem is intermittent so electronic component of the video card could have parts partially damages or leaky components.
if your still using the motherboards built in video out put, try installing a new video card.

A Plasma Screen never need 're gassing'.
If you have verified the connections and leads are correct the the up converter is possibly faulty and in need of servicing.
Take it to an authorised NEC repair shop.
