Can anyone help me find a PSU (prefebly Amazon because Prime) that can be used for my G2460PG? It's in storage and I won't have any access to it for weeks, if not longer

 

 
Is it save to even swap out PSUs?

Nineteen volts at three and a half amperes.  Serious power there.  Do not exceed the voltage rating and the current needs to be at least the rated minimum.  Observe polarity and proper plug size.  That much voltage can do serious damage if not polarized correctly.  Much smoke could insue.

Thanks for the response, but this is going a bit over my head. I'm still trying to figure this out.

FWW:  Amazon generally will reflect replacement parts for computers and appliances...in (IMO) surprising detail.  I've replaced my monitor PSU by looking there, along with trivialities like vacuum cleaner supplies and parts.

Is the item what you ordered?  Is it advertised as fitting your monitor?

 

There is no standard monitor PSU cable...you need to order the specific part for the specific item.  If you look at the old PSU, the numbers on it will reflect what the part number for the new replacement.

What PSU did you order, and what is the difference between the plugs? Your image doesn't show the connector end-on, and someone else asking about the same PSU posts images which seem to be the same type of connector as the one I linked to (which claims to substitute for the same part number).

 

As long as the fault with your original PSU is not a broken wire at the plug, it's not a difficult job for someone who can solder and has some heatshrink tubing to transfer the old plug onto the new PSU. (Although that would void warranty.)
