My chair is turning off my screen.

I recently got a secret lab soft weave chair. I also  have a BenQ monitor that has an included remote.

 

A few days after getting the chair I noticed I was getting shocked here and there. At the same time I noticed that sometimes when I would get up my BenQ monitor would turn off for about three seconds then come back. My secondary monitor does nothing.

 

I quickly realized that it is the static discharge that I think is interacting with the IR receiver. I am just worried it might not be good for the screen. I have tried to cover the receiver with electrical tape but the problem persists (though less frequently). Any suggestions on how I can solve this?

Sounds like the same thing happening here.

I doubt it has anything to do with the IR receiver.

I’m thinking about this but I’m not sure how to go about it. The door frame in the pic is metal so that’s promising, I’d consider using a small chain or even anti static wrist strap and just tethering it from the wheel base to the door frame, but I’m unsure if there is enough contact with the wheelbase and the rest of the chair for that to be effective

I just realised that his monitor and yours are both BenQ. I wonder if they're for some reason more susceptible to this. What model monitor do you have? Eevblog states his model at the start of the video, it'll be interesting if it's the same model.

BenQ EX2780Q 27"
 

it is probably related to it being BenQ, does his model also have a remote? Mine also has light detection, getting dimmer in the evening. Otherwise it could be something in the monitor.

 

It is good to know that I’m not the only one this has happened to, just wish I knew if it was harmful.
