Depending on which OS you are on, and the other factors of your environment, we should be able to adjust, or at least explain, through settings, and/or possibly drivers. Please advise if you wish to pursue further. If so, it would be helpful to know the specifics of the remainder of your system, and what type(s) of documents, etc., you are expecting to see when the screen displays the contents. Additionally, we need to take a look at the settings of the monitor re resolution, refresh, and so forth. Thank you.

    FYI, according to the manual for your monitor, the standard (recommended) warm-up period for the monitor is 20 minutes. This is an extraordinary amount of time based on what we have become accustomed to with more current products. However, unless there has been a substantial increase in the amount of time it is taking for your monitor to react when it is powered on, this activity should not be viewed as abnormal. By the way, it does not matter if your monitor is white or black, all of the settings, drivers, etc., are the same.



    Further, if you desire to ensure that you have the most current driver, especially if you have recently seen a specific degradation in performance, you may find the driver in two places. You can download the NEC LCD Monitor Installer, which is an automated installer provided by NEC, designed to detect your monitor and choose the proper and most current driver, handling the installation for you. This is the most current resource provided by NEC, dated March 3, 2008, and is located at http://www.necdisplay.com/SupportCenter/....



    I did verify that your monitor is included in the monitors handled by this piece of software, so long as your OS is above Windows 98. You can also choose the driver yourself within the installer if you so desire. The second method of obtaining a driver is to go to http://www.necdisplay.com/SupportCenter/..., where you will then have to scroll down a long list of monitors to locate yours. Then you choose the driver and download it for installation. However, I would not recommend this, as the driver files in this location are dated 2002.



    I do not know if you will actually see this information or not, but your user's manual is also available from the second link I provided you here (in the preceding paragraph). There is no information regarding the status of the lights, but it seems that so long as it is green, it is powering up, and the amber light is in power-save mode. As I stated earlier, I would be happy to help you adjust your OS settings if you so desire, so that more often, there is no waiting time for the monitor to display content. Thank you for using and rating at FixYa.

Dear Sir/madam,


Click this link for more information....

http://www.princetongraphics.com/site/support_faq_lcd.htm

A light blinking at a rate of at least once every second often seems to be made to indicate there is a problem, as in the makers of the device that has the light did it to show that there is a problem, so at least the monitor "knows" there is a problem...So maybe you should read the manual or contact the manufacturer and see what the blinking light means.
First things I would try are to plug it into a different PC, trying a different data cable, a different power cord, and a different outlet. If all of the above fails (including reading the manual or contacting the mfr.), it is probably a part inside the monitor not working correctly. Make sure all connections are secure, and not crooked or anything, including the video card's (if there is one) connection the the motherboard's slot, any internal power cord to the video card, etc

thanks
good luck

Hi, try downloading and reinstalling the drivers, and also the manual for possible clues as to what's at fault.

How's the status light of your computer monitor? is it blinking amber? and the status light of your computer tower's power button? blinking amber as well or solid green or no light at all?

1. Disconnect all the connection at the back of your computer tower
2. Press the power button of the computer tower for 15 seconds
3. Reconnect the power button and the monitor cable at the back of your computer tower and turn on the computer (if it turned on that means that one of the device plugged at the back of your computer tower is faulty)
4. If still the same problem, open up your computer tower.
5. Reseat the video card, Reseat Hard drive, Reseat Memory, Reseat CPU, Reseat power cord coming from the CPU to your computer (doing all things one-by-one to pin-point the root cause of the issue)

If none of the troubleshooting steps fixed the problem, possible that the power supply is faulty and if the power supply is faulty sometimes it goes with the motherboard.

Flat screen monitor functioning strangely


Sounds like there maybe bad caps on the power board in the LCD. Try a different monitor on your computer and if the known working monitor comes on with the computer and behaves properly then you know its a problem with your original monitor. If the known working monitor acts strange as well then you know its a problem with the video card. Let me know what happens.

Power light flashes till i smack the back of my monitor lightly then it will work for a while?


looks like a loose connection in the monitor better take it to service personnel. and don't smack it cos if the loose cable hits any internal portions of the monitor a big showdown can happen.

Dell flat panel monitor -power button blinks green to amber - no


One reason that this is happening could be that it is on Power saving mode. This happens when the LCD monitor detecs an incorrect timing then thats the time that the LCD goes blank and the power botton starts to blink.

what you need to do is to turn the computer off. Unplug cables attach to the LCD make sure it is also off, once done press the power botton for a couple of 30secs to a minute and then release. After doing so re-connect all the cables and make sure that both ends is tight and secure once everything is ok turn the computer on same with the monitor to check if it solves the problem.

It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?

I ended up taking it to MicroCenter and their free Tech Support guy determined that the monitor was definitely bad (not the external AC adaptor). I was able to buy a relatively cheap replacement.
Incidentally, the monitor may have gone due to an electrical storm or when my PC's power supply went. At about the same time as this problem, the PC wouldn't power on... the power light would blink and I'd get clicking. The Tech Support guy checked the power supply output of one of my internal connectors and it was definitely bad. I replaced the 250W power supply with a Thermaltake 430W one (I wanted to add another drive and a couple more cards, so increasing the load) and voila "it lives again".

When I awaken my computer by moving the mouse the LCD light on the monitor keeps blinking off and on for over a minute before the screen comes on.


Delays are common for systems coming out of sleep mode and it isn't only the system box that must wake up but the monitor also samples its input to determine if a signal is present before it comes out of a power saving mode.
If the monitor is a CRT unit, the jug needs some time for the heater to warm up and emit electrons again, if an LCD, the fluorescent backlight and its circuit can have delays too.

Admitted, a minute seems a bit long but may just be the combined characteristics of your system and monitor.
It still beats booting up from scratch.
