Korean monitor randomly stopped working

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was running dual korean 27" screens and one day after rebooting my second monitor wouldn't give any signal. Cables are tight, nothing has been changed. Tried using the monitor by itself and the screen is just black.The monitor has power (red button is on) but it wont get signal from the dvi input. im using the other monitor no problem right now so its 100% a monitor problem and not PC related. Wouldnt even work on my backup pc either.

Not really sure what to do here since I bought it on Craigslist. its been working no problems for months now and the guy I got it from said he bought it used also and doesn't have the receipt

I cant try a different power bar because the connectors are different (one monitor is X-Star, other is Shimian)

Any ideas? it seems weird that a monitor would just randomly break like this but then again korean monitors are "cheap" so..


Would it be a good/bad idea to take it into a repair shop? Because I have almost no clue what to do when it comes with fixing monitors. Then again a repair could cost as much as buying another used one...


Opinions ? Thanks

You tried using something dif than the DVI?  Iv had monitors go out like this and it was because of the internal board for that connection.  Like the HDMI wouldn't work but the dp would.

2/3 koreon monitors i bought went toast, could be something really simple though - try finding a replacement for the power brick first

It only has a dvi and audio plug in. So I can't try another input unless there's a way to get picture from a audio input?

Where would I find a replacement power brick?
