Monitor is Blank and Power Light Blinks

Hi ya! I hope you can help me?!
My Dell Monitor Suddenly went Dark and then went off!
The Green Light is Blinking on and off and the screen is blank but it is 'flicering' slightly as if it wants to come alive but something is cutting out!

There is a feint 'clicking' noise coming from the Monitor..

I have tried a friends monitor and it works fine, so my PC is all working good.

Any suggestions?

My monitor is an 17inch LCD flat screen model No: E173FPb

Monitor is blank. Green power light is on steady.

Self test failed means Monitor is bad.

Check input settings, whether DVI mode is selected.

My Dell 1905FP 19 monitor went black & green power light flickers

It sound like a short circuit. I had this problem with 1907FP model. It had an USB port on the monitor which got damaged and it was shortening to the groung. In your case it might be a bad internal power supply board.

I have a Dell 17" flat screen ultrasharp monitor. It suddenly went dark and will not power up. Can it be repaired?

With the dropping price of monitors today; can get a good 22 inch lcd for less than $200 in most stores, it would probably cost more to have the old monitor repaired than just replace with a new monitor. Hope this helps.

ViewSonic LCD (VA1912w) Went Blank

I am using this great LCD for about an year. But few times in the past my LCD didnt show up the display though the Green light was still ON, turning off the LCD and opening it again always solved the problem. But now My LCD completely went blank. Turning off/on didnt work at all now. I've tried couple of other tweaks mentioned on this site but they didnt work. I am just seeing a blank screen with green light ON. and ya theres a very low hissing sound coming from the LCD.

Dell LCD monitor suddenly loses power


Five years is a long time for an LCD panel. You definetly got your money's worth.

But, if your trouble shooing has led you to this conclusion I can also only conclude that the power driver inside your panel just gave up the ghost.

However, try giving Dell a call, for what's thats worth and see what they have to say.

You might also want to ask this expert "Robotek" what he may think as he is a board troubleshooter and could give you an answer if one is there.

Monitor went black

Same with mine a couple days ago. I've been told the contacts have oxidized and need to be cleaned. It was going to cost about $80 to fix and no guarantee how long it would last so I just bought a new monitor.

Bank Monitor problems

Unplug the cable from your PC, if the monitor shows a test image, the monitor is fine and the problem is with your graphic card. If you dont see nothing on-screen after unpluging the cable from the PC, then the monitor in damaged. Send it to repair.
