I have a generic 15" touchscreen monitor that I connect to my cell phone via USBC cable. Every other phone phone I've used (LG V30, LG Velvet, Samsung Galaxy S9 & S21FE) all work with the monitor. My new S24 plus will not work with the monitor. I've checked another S24 plus and it did not work either so I know it is an issue with the phone line and not a defect in my phone. I believe the USBC on the S24 plus is not putting out enough power to run the monitor via the USBC port.

@Members_o9CqVgD I'm guessing this monitor is not powered separately? 

Did a quick test with my S23 Ultra and Fold 5. The S23 Ultra charges the Fold 5 at around 2.5 Watts. I'm guessing that your monitor needs much more than that.

You are correct. The monitor is not powered. However, every other USBC phone I have used (including a 6 year old V30 and cheap T-mobile Revel 5)  will put out enough power to run the monitor. The brand new $1000 S24 plus will not.
