My monitor (4 years old) has recently gone completely dead; no power light when switched on, no picture etc. Does anyone know if there is something I can check (say, an internal fuse), or should it be consigned to the scrap heap?

Cheers, Cris.

If I were you, I'd just scrap it. But then again, I have zero zip nada electrical engineering (or any sort of) experience. Therefore, I'd consider it not worth it to crack open a monitor to investigate it.

Check with TallCool1 here on the forums. He's really good with this sorta thing.

There might be an internal fuse, but chances are that as soon as you replace it, it will blow again. This is your opportunity to get one of those new flat screen monitors :-)
