My monitor turns off unexpectedly.

My monitor randomly shuts down for no reason.  I am unable to turn it back on, even if I unplug it a plug it back in.  It will just come back on by itself after a while.  I've tried changing the power cord...no success.  Please Help!

You may have an "overheat" sensor inside, which is cutting off the power.  Try improving the ventilation around the monitor by using a fan and cleaning any vents in the monitor.

is the power indicator still on? There may be a problem with the actual connector on the monitor

No, the power indicator is off during the "blackout".  It acts as if the monitor gets unplugged. All power to the monitor gets cut.

Try "jiggling" the power cord. Does the monitor power off? May be a loose board in the monitor if it does.

Thanks for the input guys, but Samsung told me that the monitor is faulty.  I have to send it in.

Sounds like a heating problem. If you live in a hot climate, it might help to get a fan for your new lcd display. Many of the new LCD's tend to get very hot in the small cases they put them into.

So my comment could be correct, if there is a fault in the device, it could be a damaged connector?

Samsung said it is more than likely an overheating issue, like Feralshad0w and Callandor mentioned.

Feralshad0wCommented:
It COULD be correct.. The monitor may have an emergency shut-off triggered by temperature checks at different locations or it could just be a faulty contact at someplace. Its impossible to tell really without testing. And that kind of testing would surely void the warranty.

Just for the record, I didn't mean to steal Callandor's solution lol. I just didn't read his post. It seems great minds think alike.

Thanks for the help.  I spread out the points since there is no way to determine exactly what the cause was.
