Get smart. Go buy another one. Take the packaging from that one, Return the defective one in the new packaging with the new receipt angrily demanding your money back for selling such crap for that amount of money. Problem solved.

Take legal action against their elderly mother for, although being slightly intrusive, doing something that was probably based on good intentions? That's such an insane idea. I can only assume you're American because suing the pants off someone for no reason is an American ideology and solution to everything, that's not how we do things in Australia. Also, something that expensive would be covered by a manufacturers warranty for at least a year. I returned a camera that was a few weeks old with no packaging. They can't refuse to replace it.

Breaking into someone's house against their wishes is more that "slightly intrusive". And her intent wasn't "good", it was to control. She "cleans up" so she can keep tabs on him.

Who on Earth said anything about breaking in? This site is rife with people who make massive assumptions. How do you know she didn't have a key? My mother pops over to my house to tidy up when I'm working long hours on projects at work because she LOVES me, not because she's trying to be controlling. The little old lady probably thought she was doing a favour by throwing rubbish away. So judgemental. Also on the city the OP is from if you tried to sue your mother for throwing away rubbish you'd be ridiculed by your friends, family, colleagues and any lawyer you tried to approach ??

This comment would be more appreciated by people if you hadn't just unnecessarily insulted an entire country. You claimed they are judgmental in your other comment yet here you are doing the same thing.

this would work with a 99cent toy, or most other products, but a monitor has serial numbers on the back, and the same serial number on the box, if they dont match, you go to jail for fraud. do not do this.

There are legal matters to consider here, where I live they would only be obliged to repair it or replace it if you want to return it for being defective. Then you would be stuck with two fully functioning monitors (which might not be the worst but still). My scout group ended up with three identical tents rather than one due to some misunderstandings and coincidences regarding this.

I do this when I throw away the packaging and the item fails within 30 days or so. But, OP's monitor may have a serial number on it, and it may have to match the serial on the box. Who knows. With a receipt he should be fine to return it, especially if it has a serial number to match the receipt! People throw their packaging away all the time. Just ask for a replacement!

Change you locks! Make sure your mom never gets in again without your being there. While I sympathize with the loss to OP - This was entirely preventable had he established boundaries a long time ago.
