Okay my Grandmothers Monitor as gone completly dark. They phoned me up and told me this. They have tried a friends Monitor and it worked perfectly. The Monitor is not old, and I myself believe it is still working. However there must be something wrong with it.

Does anyone have any ideas why? And what I can do to help her later on?

They used the same wire for the other Monitor that worked. So it's not the wire. So the Monitor is broke then?
