My monitor has suddenly begun cutting completely off (no power at all) after a few minutes. (I have an old Optiquest V95, 19 inch)
When it cuts off, if I wait long enough (20 minutes or so) I can restart it.
What is wierd (and possibly irelevent) is that I can restart it immidiately if I unplug the power cord from BOTH the monitor and the outlet, and then plug it back in. It doesn't work if I only unplug from the monitor or only unplug from the outlet. Weird, eh?
Oh, one last thing. I'm still using the monitor (its the only one I have) to type this and try to research what the problem is, and the time the monitor works until it cuts off seems to be slowly going down. (don't have a huge sample size to judge this, however.)
any ideas? Should I cash out and get a new one?
thanks in advance,
