The other day when I turned on my (lately rarely used) desktop computer the monitor wouldn’t turn on. I spent half an hour attempting to turn it on with it’s remote and also pushing the power button and it just wouldn’t start up.
I was so upset. We’d just bought the LCD viewsonic monitor at the beginning of January in a boxing day sale and here it was not working only 6 months or so later.
I finally decided to try unplugging it and then plugged it back in. Sure enough as soon as I hit the power button it turned on. I sure hope that that was only a fluke and not the beginning of trouble with the monitor.
