Question about Formac Gallery 1740 Oxygen 17.4 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor
My monitor is out of warranty and has just ceased to work. It will cost me too much (more than the cost of the monitor) to send it back to Europe to be looked at. I have found a local guy specialising in fixing monitors, but he says the unit is sealed. Anyone know how to open one up? Thanks

Looks like the water is getting in to the LCD contacts. Or corroding them. If the monitor can be opened safely open it and place in a warm dry environment for a few days. Silica dehumidifiers may help.
If the issue is not permanent this may fix it.

mine had the same problem, replaced the fuse with a T2.5 amp.
Ammeter gave a reading of 1.6A across the fuse pads so we shall see if its pops...

Try a monitor that has a vga output only, sometimes these laptops can't recognize the difference when there is a converter involved. It doesn't see the signal properly.
Try that and if a regular monitor works with vga then you know that monitor may not be compatible with that laptop because of the converter. You could also try another converter as well to see if that fixes the problem.
