Title: Broken MegaPixel mono monitor?
Post by: hexloo on January 10, 2017, 09:27:13 pm
Hi, I acquired a monostation and a MegaPixel monitor. The monitor doesn't show anything at all, but it does heat up (I can feel it through the vents at the top) and does send my keystrokes through as the power button works. You can see a video of what I mean here: https://youtu.be/8uumgsRi5a8

Thanks!

Sorry, I should have put this in the Black Hardware forum. Anyways, once it boots you can hear the speakers make a sound if you press control+a key, so the computer is working.

Nothing. I took the monitor apart and found that a connection was loose inside. Must have come loose during the shipping. Sorry everyone!  :roll:

Which connection was loose?  perhaps we can all benefit from knowing. :) are there connections within the monitor  that are susceptible to coming loose in transit?  Please advise. :) (If you recall...) :)

Cheers.
