I'm trying to understand what happened to my MBP because it's a rather weird situation.
I hooked my MBP to a Samsung CJ89 43" monitor directly through USB type C. It worked for a while and then suddenly the built-in screen started flashing and then the connection to the monitor was lost. While connected, the laptop's fans were running hot but I didn't give it a thought, it usually gets hot even without it connected to a monitor since I run a lot of demanding tasks on it.
After this, I realised that the MBP won't charge anymore on any port. The right side ports wouldn't do anything, while the left side ports would still charge my phone, for example.
I used the original USB-C cable from Samsung, not anything cheap, so why did this happen?
I'm mainly asking because I got the laptop fixed but I'm afraid of hooking it back up to the monitor.
