Default Can this LCD monitor be fixed?

Hello guys, I am new here ran across these forums yesterday while I was trying to find some seminar videos on Mike Meyers.

Nevertheless, I was given an Acer lcd monitor (yes I know Acer is not the best quality) Well this monitor does not work, and before I turn it into a BB gun target I would like to see if there is a possible fix for it.

When I power the monitor on, it will show my desktop for a second and then go to a blank screen. The power button will stay green also. Since it does show the desktop for a second that leads me to believe there might be a fix. Maybe,maybe not lol

Hello! and thank you all in advance.

No, I don't even know of anywhere that will repair monitors anymore, crt or otherwise..

And if you did find a place that could repair it they would probably want more than the monitor is worth.

oo no I deffiently do not want to spend any money on it. I only asked because I could catch a glimpse of my desktop before it turned off , and that lead me to think there may be some sort of fix. But yea.. I think I am about to go draw a bulls eye

Could always try cracking it open andseeing if its just a loose connection. Might as well if you're gonna destroy it anyway, right?

Also, I have an Acer display, and quite like it...all the Acer displays I've seen are quite nice (same can't really be said for their Aspire laptop line though...).
