Question about Computer Monitors

Lacie electron19blueIV blacked out

My monitor is black when turned on, and the "on  button" light flashes and makes a clicking noise. 
I have two monitors hooked up to a G5 Tower for use with Final Cut Pro. Because one monitor is out I am unable to access the browser window which contains video clips for editing. 
I swapped the video cables between monitors and had the same issue with the same monitor, so I'm assuming it is not the video card. 
What is the problem? Can I fix it myself? Is there a way to move the FCP browser window with my captured clips over to the working monitor? If I could see an image on the second monitor I could drag the browser window back onto the first monitor. Maybe there's another way to do it via preferences or something. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi..there,
It's seems your backlight inverter are busted, need replaced a new one or repaired it. To repaired look for a capacitors with bulged on top of each caps. Not sure, just replaced all the caps...
To move the FCP browser..turned on your monitor and shined a flashlight to the screen...you might seeing a very light browser from there you can drag it to the other monitor... Have a nice weekend!

POWERED ON MONITOR, FLASHES ON, THEN GOES BLACK, MAKES NOISE


This is general LCD monitor advice. I don't know your specific model. Your problem, however, is very common on many different monitors.

In 90% of cases, the problem is one or more failed electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board. They are a simple matter to replace, but require desoldering the old ones and soldering in new ones, as well as general electrical/electronic safety practices.

If what I've just said already makes sense to you, then you're probably qualified - go ahead and replace them. If I'm talking greek, then go find an electronics nerd - some goofy looking guy wielding a soldering gun should do.

I would try booting the computer in safe mode (if it's windows) and adjust your display settings. It sounds as though it is trying to display from your computer something that it cannot properly.
