Re: Monitor temporarily on

Hi, It looks like it may be receiving power from the computer but not a signal. Try a different monitor cable from the PC and even a different monitor. If doesn?t work, it could be the graphics card in the PC. Daniel

My brother experienced a power hit today. No UPS. Anyway, his monitor indicator light is not green, but an brownish orange. Does this only indicate standby mode because the PC isn't booting either....

It means it is not getting the video signal from the PC. You should try this monitor with another PC or another monitor with this PC. You may have problrm in the PC.

The Dell AS 501 monitor display comes and goes off in seconds. If I switch off and on again, the display comes back and goes off again in less than a second. I repeat this as many times the same monitor...

This sounds like the power inverter is failed.. It's what pumps up the power for the light in the monitor.
You could try unplug the sound bar from the back of monitor if you have the sound bar installed. Just a maybe..
To fix the inverter (replace) is usually better to buy newmonitor unless you do it your self.
The defective LCD Backlight inverter will cause the following symptoms:
  • No Display, but Power Indicate light stay on green (Or Blue).
  • Screen flash on and off and the power indicate light stays on green (or Blue).
  • Dim Display

Hello Chelleydiao, hi, its either you have a CPU problem or the monitor itself. Check or use another monitor to see if the problem is fix. you see an blank monitor can also be caused by the CPU if it fails to boot. the aid the checking, do you see any orange light on the monitor? or any indication.... the led light on the screen in summary: green or blue means there is power and the CPU boots up. if orange the CPU fails to boot, if there are no lights on the Monitor panels, there are problems on the monitor. check these first....I need a much detail description.

Screen does not turn on but green light is on.

Green light indicates the monitor is getting power. Nothing coming up on the screen indicates, No Signal.

No signal from the computer. This means the computer itself isn't working.

A bad power supply in the computer can cause this. A bad power supply is the leading cause of desktop computer failure. It is replaceable, and can be done by the owner relatively easy.

You may have a computer tower that the Power light comes on, you hear fan/s spinning, (Including the Power Supply fan), and it sounds like the harddrive is running.

ALL the lights in your computer use less than 1 Watt.
EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
A harddrive sitting there spinning in an endless loop, consumes about 2 to 3 Watts.

A Processor uses 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

A weak Power Supply will have enough power for lights, fans, and that harddrive sitting there spinning.
It won't have enough power to turn on the Processor.

[No processor operating, then the harddrive sits there spinning in an endless loop, because there is no processor to find the boot sector]

For a test, connect your monitor to a know good computer. See if it works.
Now connect that other monitor to your computer.

Black screen

How old is the computer? Make sure that the power light comes onto the monitor when you plug it in, should be orange and then turn green when video card syncs with it when PC is turned on. If you are getting black screen when PC is powered on:
1. Bad video card
2. Bad video cable
3. Bad monitor
1Solution: Try using a different monitor attached to this same PC and see if it works. If it does, then its the monitor, its cable, or its power supply. If it doesn't work, then its the video card or the video cable coming from monitor.

Startup issue

Sounds like a problem in the power supply section that will need component-level electronic troubleshooting. If it's under warranty and less than 30-60 days, I would suggest an exchange. If not, I would call the number in the manual for help.
