Well this is a weird one.

After spending months getting the Megatouch XL up and running, I had it working well for over a month. However, out of nowhere the monitor stopped turning on. I can't tell if it's receiving power at all, but I am guessing not because I don't hear any high pitched whine and I don't see any light in the glass part of the neckboard (which I believe I should see). I know it's not the motherboard because when I touch around the screen, I hear sound-effects, so the machine itself is running fine.

Does anybody know what I could try? The monitor appears to be in good shape. I see no leaking caps; and I am not sure that would be the issue anyway because from what I understand, bad caps would usually result in a poor picture, vertical hold not working, etc. I unplugged and re-plugged the VGA cable, to make sure it was secure. I made sure no cables (especially power-related cables) were not disconnected and I made sure they were secure. I I even checked the little fuse on the chassis and the fuse is not blown. Does anybody know what else I can check?

Again, this is one of the original Megatouch XL machines that are fully upright (not bar-top) if that helps at all. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
