I have this monitor but do not have the adapter/power plug. Have had no luck finding one or even being able to contact mfg. Can someone suggest something, an alternate a/c adapter perhaps? My brother gave me this monitor with a working Sony laptop that, alas, does not have a working monitor! He says he can't find original adapter. I'm without computer now and I'm disabled, stuck at home. A working computer is essential to me. Please help! Thanks! P.S. borrowing a friend's laptop for the moment...
The monitor side of the AC power plug on this model is NOT the standard D-shaped rubbery end like on most computer equipment. The end is three rounded connectors grouped in a triangular arrangement somewhat resembling the AC plug that goes into a laptop power adapter, such as the old "flying saucer" shaped PowerBook power adapters (though the Apple plug goes in at a right angle and may not fit for that reason) AND it may be a different size.
If you can't find the plug at all, at worst you could open the monitor case and solder the end of a grounded wire, OR solder in a standard socket.

There are several Mag monitors that use external AC adapters that plug into the VGA cable. Look on the blue connector and you should see the hole where the adapter plugs. The adapter is 12v 5 amp such as this one.
Go to your monitor's official website or Go to www.download.com / www.softpedia.com in driver section. If not there, then Search on google by typing the driver name of your monitor and then find that from various website.
It all depends if the Mag has been used before on the same system or it is a new installation or on a different computer.
If it is connected to an existing set-up and has been used previously, then possibly it is the computer's video card/memory or just not booting. Alternately, it could be the video interface/main board of the monitor or even possibly the cable;
If it is just being installed on a known good computer, then it could be that the screen resolution and/or the screen refresh rate of the display properties of the computer needs to be lowered down.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
If you ask them nicely they just might tell you, else it's only $5 for a user manual(sorry no luck online);
this link has a picture that maybe shows a power cable going to the bottom right (as you look at it) but it's hard to be sure;
this link shows what the power lead should be like - look for a hole that matches;
Hope this helps, if not ask again :)
