    It should say right on the casing (near the power inlet) what voltage it requires.

    If it uses an external in-line brick, then the voltage will not always be printed on the monitor input.

    It will be on the power supply brick, which is the problem - the poster hasn't got it.

    I have 2 LCD's here. Viewsonic and HP. They are both 15" models, and appear to have identical power requirements. The power bricks are rated at 12v, 4.16 amps. Different brands of power adapters but identical ratings. Seems logical that you would be looking for similar, with higher current ratings? (5 amp?)

    thanks i found some similar monitors in a search on the internet and the power ratings for the 18 inch lcd was 12 volts and 5 amps and for the 15 inch the power ratings were 12 volts and 4 amps just didnt know if they all ran the same like that with just a little fluctation.

    thanks again very much
