back in March '03 i purchased a Samsung SyncMaster 955df, it has worked perfectly until recently. the problem is that the power button doesn't seem to respond and i just can't turn it on at all. if you're familiar with this monitor, you'll notice it has a soft bounce/spring sound when turning it on, and that has disappeared now and it seems as if the spring for the power may not be functioning correctly. i've connected an older monitor to my pc to see if the problem may be else where, but it works fine. i've also tried another power cable, which also didn't work. i really have no idea what is wrong. before and after it happened, i didn't notice anything unusual, like if the tube had blown or something. anyway, i just thought i'd try posting this and see if somebody has any ideas at all.
i've emailed tech support and everything aswel, just considering my options at the moment.
