    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?

    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 :)
