My monitor just blew out - it's an Opti-quest just past the warranty (17in).
I am strongly considering getting a new monitor to replace it but took a look inside of the monitor to see exactly what happened - It just went blank and there was a strong burning smell when it happened. When I looked inside there was no sign of any synges or burnt marks and everything looked fine until I noticed a SMALL FUSE in the corner - It has a burnt smell to it when I took it out - no other part has that strong of a burnt smell but there is a trace on the other components only right next to the fuse. I was thinking that I would have to replace a perfectly good monitor becuase of a small fuse - does anyone know/have experience working with monitors??
Maybe you can tell me where I could get a replacement fuse and see if by replacing the FUSE my monitor will work again.
any help is appreciated.
PS. Viewsonic does not offer any support for this it seems.
