Possible, What have you tried if any

Post the type of screen and printer that way somebody may be able to work out what input voltages are involved.

It is possible that the back light has blown

Most TFT screens come with a 3 year warrenty although THIS problem may not be covered. Look at the stickers on the base to give UK manufacturers/ Agents info and give them a shout

The screen should not blow just by plugging the power lead in. But if the signal cable was plugged in when switched on, it could have done it in. Also switch of and remove the signal cable to check see none of the pins are bent both ends of cable

Contact the manufacturers, they may be able to give some advice.

You should not be able to plug the mains lead into the "signal" cable of the monitor, they just don't normally fit. Have you looked at the signal cable connector on the monitor - you can't get a square peg in a round hole? Regards David
