I have a desk top computer and when i plug everything in the power button turns green and flickers on and off what is wrong and how can i fix it

This is on the AOC monitor?

If so, the power supply is likely failing. If the power supply is external, try a new one. Otherwise check to see if the monitor is still under warranty.

The flashing power button is an indication that the power supply has failed. There are parts called capacitors that filter the output power and when they short out the power supply can't start up correctly os it tried over and over, this make the power light flash each time it tries to start up. The monitor is easy to repair if you can do a little soldering. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to dis-assemble the unit and what to look for and replace to get it back going again. Te guide also has videos showing the steps.

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

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.

My monitor just went completely blank. There is a


The ticking sound you hear is from the power supply trying to power up. If you can solder you should be able to repair the monitor yourself. The problem is caused by blown capacitors on the power board. Go to our web site at : We have pictures of what to look for. Open your monitor and look at the power supply board for any blown capacitors, replace all that you find. The replacement parts can be ordered from several places on the internet or we can supply them for you. The replacement parts will need to be high temp and will be marked 105c. The values you need to get will be marked on the sides of the ones you take out but will be something like 220uf, 470uf, or 1000uf etc. and then a voltage rating. When you install the new ones be sure to insert them with the polarity stripe going the same direction as the old ones come out. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for $35 plus return shipping. If you have any questions just let us know

I hope this helps if so please rate our solution.

Have a phillips 107s monitor, green led flashes, making a tick tick sound, no display

Make sure the mains plug is firmly inserted. The most likely cause of the problem is a power supply problem which will be uneconomical to repair in the current day. Cheaper to replace with an LCD.

Dead samsung 172n power light flickers

Have you checked the power output from the power board? Is it constant and steady? Try reflowing all the joints if you haven't already. Especially transformer and coil joints. Maybe a bad logic board? Do you have spares to try? Does it do this with everything disconnected from the pwr board (switch, logic, inverter)?
