    The monitor has probably finished its work – what about

    by bluenite1 ·

    Tags: 

    I’ve been using a good quality LCD monitor NEC2690WUXi for about a year as a display for internet TV via hdmi cable with splitter for audio to soundbar. I don’t know if this use has caused the malfunction, which is displayed by a broken picture (flashing vertical lines). I tried connecting it to a normal pc, it does it all the time. I.e. it probably has reached the end of its useful life and is to be thrown away? Or is it worth repairing? I wouldn’t ask here, but it wasn’t exactly cheap, however it has served its time. Has anyone encountered anything similar, even with other types?
    Thanks for any advice or responses

      IMHO, it is rarely cost effective to attempt to fix it and usually cheaper to purchase a newer model. Just recycle the old monitor or donate it to someone to see if they can get it to work for them.

      That model shipped in 2007.

      Did you buy it used? Anyhow, at over a decade old, you replace it,

      If your system is receiving power, indicated by the LEDs on your PC’s internal components lighting up, you might want to skip to Step 3.

      If not, let’s start with the cables coming from your wall.

      Test that the wall outlet is active by plugging in a device (such as a lamp) that you know works and seeing if it functions properly.
      Make sure any surge protector or power strip is correctly plugged into the outlet, and that the power switch is on. Plug in other devices to the power strip and confirm they are operating properly.
      Double-check that your PC’s power supply on/off switch is on.
      Confirm that the PC power cable is properly plugged into the power supply and outlet, as it can become loose over time.

      The monitor’s flashing vertical lines indicate a hardware problem. Due to its age and repair costs, it’s best to consider buying a new one. Check for warranty options or recycling programs.
