Am a bit frustrated. Bought a Philips monitor 246E for my pc

Customer Question

Hi there. Am a bit frustrated. Bought a Philips monitor 246E for my pc last November. Today it will not work. I have unplugged and replugged it in to the socket, pc and anything else I can think of. Turned it on off using the button at the back too. It is not turning on as a screen...however, the small light in the RH corner, which usually indicates if on or not, is just blinking intermittently. So something is happening...but?! Help!
JA: What exactly is frozen or not starting up for you?
Customer: Sorry,,. Got my daughter texting me too.
JA: What Philips model do you have? And the Operating System (OS)?
Customer: The monitor itself is not showing the screen
JA: How long has this been going on with your computer? What have you tried so far?
Customer: this morning turned all on and off. Unplugged, plugged again connections checked very bizarre
JA: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: i can usually solve most things....the pc itself is absolutely fine. It is the monitor

The cable connection please cross check as no signal is going from computer to monitor.

remove and reinsert firmly

That has been done several times. Even before the online chat

I think Remote support will not resolve the issue.

DO you have another cable to try ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, but I can order one. Can you tell me exactly what to buy? Prob from amazon

I am buying a DVI not an HDMI cable! Am in the uk, so will look for an Amazon .co. Uk link instead
