I had a lcd monitor for a while.

It went dark and nothing.

I was able to return it and got another.

2 weeks it went dark and nothing.

It was new enough to return with no problems.

I hooked up the new one a Samsung.

It came on with the picture as soon as it was plugged in.

Any thoughts or is it just coincidence?

That is weird... What were the brands on the other two?

Could be a power issue.

Are you using a quality surge suppressor? I'd recommend a nice TrippLite or APC model, one that runs in the ~$45 range.

The 2 were Envision.

1 was about a year old

The "new" one was a display model.

The Samsung is new in the box.

After I posted I put the computer into stand by.

It did not want to come back up when I hit the keyboard.

The monitor however sas asking for a signal.???

I've had a few Envisions (17" lcd) monitors fail in the last few months. They had been in service for a while (1-2 yrs.)

Envision in on my "Avoid List"

BTW, CostCo took them all back :-)

Now when I hit stand by I have to turn off the power to restart.?
