Hello to the forum,
Okay, I was given a Maxent MX-27K2 monitor that powers up,and the on screen menus can viewed. Unless viewing the menus,the screen is totally blue. All systems, and modes, state that there is no signal.
When switching TV stations,sound from the next station can be heard for a split second. Other than that,there is no sound. There is nothing like a quick flash of a picture when changing stations,just the sound.
If a PC is connected,and allowed to hibernate,the message that windows is resuming is displayed across the bottom of the monitor screen when the PC is coming out of hibernation. This is the only sign of communication between the PC and the monitor. When the PC is in DOS, there's no display.
I know little about this type of equipment,and I'm just wondering if the problem is an easy fix,or if the monitor needs to be recycled.
I haven't taken it apart for an inspection for obviously failed components. As a rule,I'm usually not that lucky that I'd find an easy fix like a burnt capacitor.
Thanks for any tips on what to look for,or just to say scrap it.
