Crossover 27" 27QW IPS LED QHD DVI-D AH-IPS 2560x1440 Monitor HELP

HI all

I have just received my new monitor today, hooked it all up etc, and I have a problem.

The power brick receives power as the green light is on, but when I then connect the brick to my monitor using the cable provided the light switches off and my monitor doesn't receive power.

Any Ideas?

Many thanks

Craig

I ran into a similar issue the other day, the power brick for these monitors is VERY power hungry.

I just moved mine from one room into aonther, and in the new room, there are so many things plugged into the walls that the brick can't get enough power to power the monitor.

Try a few different power outlets ( preferable in different rooms )


And if that does not work, you may have to replace your power brick, or return it to the seller you bought from, they've been reported to go bad and stop working unexepectedly.

Thanks for the quick reply, unfortunately I have no option of another room. When I connect the wire to my monitor it make a small crackle sound and the light on the brick goes off, is that the same problem as you had?

Yup. plugging the power cord into the monitor would make a crackle, but wouldn't power on. Moving the monitor back to the room it was previosly in and it worked again.

The way houses are wired, the wall sockets are often in series througout the rooms and adjasent walls. and its possible to draw too much load and not blow the circuit breaker.
in this case, the monitor is not drawing enough power from the wall when turned on, and isntead of blowing the breaker, it simply won't turn on.

To test to see if this is the case, go around your room and unplug any high powered items ( stereo equipment, microwaves, appliances, etc )if the monitor works, thats your problem, if not, you may have got a bad brick/monitor.
