Unplug it and let it dry out. its possible that you shorted some components out with the water.. you may have to replace some of the control boards inside.

Monitor power light is blinking and no image is displayed.


The problem is in the power supply board, there are one or more capacitors that open, causing the power to stop. Sometimes they will bulge at the top making it easier to spot.

Monitor just went dim.


Hello,

The blinking power button indicates a short in the power supply which is then not putting out the full voltage needed to give a bright display. This is a very common problem with LCD monitors after 2-3 years of service. It is caused by heat buildup in the case causing parts called capacitors to blown out causing the power supply to short out which in turn make the power light just blink. You can repair it yourself if you can solder. We have a repair diagram posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com Replace the parts shown and you will be back up and running. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for $35 plus return shipping. Let us know if you have any other questions about the unit or the repair.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Monitor comes on dimly then goes off


The most common cause of dim displays on this unit is a failure in the back light power supply. This problem can be fixed if you can do a little soldering. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to dis-assemble and repair the power supply board.

My dell e173fp monitor has quit working. The power light continually blinks when power is applied, even without having to turn it on. An identical substitute monitor works fine on the computer system. ...


Is the power blinking amber? This is a DPMS power-save mode. With the computer disconnected and the monitor on, do you see the colored self-test block floating around? With the monitor on, computer connected, and you still have no image displayed, take a bright flashlight and examine the screen closely. If you can see a very dim display in the screen, the fluorescent tubes which light up the *background* and provide the vivid picture(sort of like a how an x-ray picture viewer works) are defective. The power light blinking may be the power supply sensing the non-functioning tubes or it could just be bad. If your display is under warranty, replace it. If not, trying to have the monitor repaired for this type of problem is almost as costly as a new one--and there won't be an active warranty on anything else that might fail. Hope I helped you.---Rick

Apple 23 monitor 3 blinks and then pause, top screen is dim.


I have an older 20" display. I have had this same problem on occasion, and coincidentally, just experienced it again this morning. It seems to occur after I do an OS update. I powered down the computer, disconnected the display, reconnected by pushing firmly into place, then powered up. The flashing stopped and the display works fine. You might have a different problem, but that simple solution worked for me.

LCD monitor display not working


The problem you have is with the backlight lamp, which is not turning on. When this happens only because lamp is faulty, Acer LCDs have a security switch that will not turn the screen on at all and will return a blinking light on power on led , as diagnostic feedback.
If you have a dim light it sometimes means that the bulb is still ok, but is not working. This often happens because of a faulty capacitor on inverter, which is powering the lamp.
Although the above symptoms are typical of a faulty inverter, a faulty power supply, lamp, or A/D board can produce the same symptoms.
It's also possible that an inverter could have been damaged by a faulty lamp. If faulty lamp is not replaced before refitting the repaired inverter, in time, the inverter will fail again.

Best thing to do is taking your lcd to a local TV repair or computer repair that works with lcd (ensure they work proficiently on lcds , some of them doesn't), to test if it is the lamp or a faulty component on board. If possible find a shop giving you some warranty time, as, if there is more than one problem the LCD can fail again in few days.

No signals. screen is blank. power green light is blinking.


Its not a malfunction. blinking light is indicator shows that no appropriate input signal detected. If you are using laptop refer your user manual to toggle to external display device. For example in most of the Toshiba Laptops requires to use Fn+F5 in order to use external display device like you have. If issue still persist you may post again by including the details of your laptop/desktop model.

Good Luck, Happy New Year

Big Problem


Hi Nvidiot, Sounds like the backlight inverter board. It's a very common problem. LCD's use four small Cold Compact Fluorescent bulbs to back light the display. (thats what gives the LCD it's brightness allowing you to see it) The inverter board runs these lights and when they go bad they will typically show symptoms like you have or the monitor power light comes on and you have either no display or a very dim display. If you ever have one that has no display but the power light is on you can check by shining a flashlight directly into the LCD from the front (right into the screen) if you can see an image then it's either the inverter board (most likely) or the CCFL bulbs have gone bad. The inverter board and CCFL's are replaceable. Good Luck, El Duderino
