Will using a more powerful power supply for my monitor hurt it?

by on August 7, 2011

Q: Hi, i lost my monitor power supply, but i found out that my laptop has a different power supply but with the same connector that fits in my monitor. I am currently using it, and where my monitor requires 14V, the laptop adapter says it pumps out 16V. Will this damage my monitor screen? Btw, i am using the monitor right now.

    In general I’d suggest against using incorrect voltage as it may decrease the life of your monitor. For best results I suggest you purchase a replacement power supply that is compatible with your monitor.
