It’s 4:00 a.m. in the morning, I come back from the kitchen with another cup of coffee… and my monitor is dead. :shocked:
My main monitor - my pride and joy. My very first, and the only-one IPS monitor I have ever owned :sad:
I bought it on Black Friday, back in 2015.
I found my old screenshots and notes of the order - the warranty was 1 year parts and labor
This is the one:
Question: is there any chance, that the power adapter, and not the monitor itself, has died?
In the last 2-3 weeks, I noticed, that sometimes this monitor went to sleep, and would not wake up, when I would come back and use the mouse or keyboard. I had to use the nipple-power-button on the monitor to wake it up. It wasn’t turned off (red LED), but asleep (blue LED). I have a 2nd monitor connected to this pc (as secondary), although I pretty much always have it disabled with DisplayFusion. So, when the main LG ultra-wide occasionally went into deep-sleep “coma”, it would probably disconnect from windows, because after I would manually wake it up, all my open programs windows would be resized and not were I left them. I assume, because the old secondary monitor is only 1080p…
Anyway, this bothers me, because it felt like a problem with the monitor itself (like somethings up with the electronics), not a power issue (as in power adapter/cable).
I hope it’s only adapter, of course.
I tried unplugging it from the power, tried another UPS - nope, looks dead.
I checked on amazon, and found only 2 adapters, from some unknown makers, that at least have some reviews. There are 2-3 others, but with no reviews at all. I would really feel uneasy buying those.
Question: which one should I choose?
Or, rather, does any one of these 2 would fit as a replacement for my monitor? I need to be honest - when it comes to electricity - I am useless. I just want to double-check, that they’re not too “weak” or too “strong”? Sorry, for my ignorance.
- This one has 4 reviews and does not have my exact model number: 34UM95C-P in the description.
- This one has only 2 reviews, but has my model in the description, and is $10 cheaper.
Should I try and buy an adapter, hoping it is the culprit?
I love this monitor. I spend 12+ hours in front of it, almost daily. I even stopped watching movies and tv on my actual LG 55 inch TV set. I use this monitor, and I love it.
I really can’t afford a new one at this moment
Thanks in advance for any help.
