I don't feel comfortable having you connect to my machine, can you just tell me that to do on my part
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.


Can you please remove the power to the monitor (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the monitor , turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please
