I brought the ST2420L Monitor a day or so ago brand new and it has been going well however when I attempted to turn it on it made a sparking/crackling sound. If i touch the power cord at the place it connects into the screen it makes this same sound.. should I be worried?
Is the cord fully seated into the monitor? Is the other end connected directly to the wall socket?
Get it replaced. If you only have a monitor order number, you should contact Order Support. If your monitor was purchased tied to a Dell PC, contact Technical Support. They will need the following data -
Monitor Order number or PC Service Tag number:
Monitor 20 digit PPID number:
