Question about X2Gen MG19MY 19" LCD Monitor
I just recently moved my monitor back home, and when I plugged it in this morning, the blue light came on in the front saying there is power, but there is no screen showing that it is hooked up to the pc or even not connected. Also the other buttons are not responding to me trying to access them. When I go to try to turn the screen off with the main blue button, it will not power off. I am trying to figure out if the unit is trash now or what the problem is and if it is still in working condition? Thanks for any help or advice in this matter
This sounds like a straight hardware issue. However, to be certain, try to attach another monitor to this PC, and if it works properly, you will know that there is nothing wrong with the graphics card/driver or other related component of the PC involved. (Also make sure you are using the proper type of cable - analog/digital - for the connection.) Also suggest switching out cables to eliminate that. Further, you could try to see if the monitor functions properly when attached to another machine. If the machine is not functional and another is, that will confirm that the issue is hardware-based.
Unfortunately, X2Gen has declared bankruptcy (see http://x2gen.com/) and there is no way to go back to the manufacturer for either support or warranty service. If you are still within a given time frame with either the retailer, or perhaps through a credit card company, this would be your best recourse. Here is the link to the form via which you could file a bankruptcy claim: http://www.x2gen.com/files/Claim.pdf. Hope this may help, if you can't get reimbursed through some other means.
My experience with this type of issue is that the hardware has gone bad. Particularly with the nature of your problem, it seems that it is not a minor problem, and does not appear to involve drivers or other software-type fixes. If you could get a professional tech to repair it, the cost would most likely be more than replacement of the monitor. Sorry for the bad news, but I don't think there is a better solution.
If the monitor continues to behave in the same manner, I think that is absolute confirmation that you have a "nonnegotiable" hardware issue. If not - in other words, if you see something different with switch of connections/machines, there could be a graphics card/driver or other issue that we could work on further.
