Hello

After leaving my monitor to my pc on for over 24 hours, it just shuts off. No power.
This has happened three times so far.

The first time it took about about 6 hours for it to work again.

The second time and third time, it just shut off, came on, shut off, came on, shut off, came on.

Is it probably time to buy a new monitor? It is 7 years old.

Best solution

So you dont think that maybe I left on too long and it overheated?

Sounds like the capacitors may be going bad. If the vents are not obstructed, then it should be able to be on all the time without overheating

The vents are clean.
