    Default Monoprice touch screen monitor lifetime?

    I hadn't used my 5-year old lathe for a while and powered it down for a couple weeks. I just turned it back on today and the Monoprice touchscreen monitor that I bought with the lathe fades out within a few seconds after power up. Cycling power to the monitor gets it working for a few seconds, just long enough to click a few onscreen buttons before it fades out again. Is there any chance of an affordable fix or should I just buy a new monitor?

    To make it worse, someone from Tormach mentioned that they are working on a version of the Pathpilot Operator Console for the lathe, which may be available around the end of the year and I'll probably to replace the monitor before then.

    Can't help with the monitor. I heard that Tormach is releasing a new lathe soon as well.

    Well, I ordered a replacement from Amazon, which arrived today, and the old one started working yesterday so I guess I have a spare. We've had a number of power outages here so I sort of assumed that voltage spikes from one of them had done in the monitor.

    For what it is worth I purchased a Monoprice 106959 17-Inch Monitor at the end of 2015 and it is still working great. Now I've probably jinxed it! With my probable problems in mind, which monitor did you order? Please let us know if it works with PP.

    The old monitor is still working fine and it's replacement is in storage awaiying complete failure of the original.
