Re: my computer monitor is blinking on and off
You will have to have your power board and inverter redone. This is
probably a transistor problem that is causing the flashing. You could
also have a few bad capacitors.
I do a lot of monitor boards via ebay. I haven't done this model yet.
If you take it apart and send me pictures, I can tell you what to look for if I see anything.

Trying the hold down power button for count of ten (did count of twenty just to make sure) didn't work. Menu came back up. Will try unplugging control chip next (this fix doesn't make sense to me ) will see if monitor will work without chip>
if you are using integrated video, your integrated video is fried, done gone. if you have a pci or pcie or vga video card, its gone or blown or dead as a doornail. replace the video card and youll be up and running again
most of the time the blinking is a form of error message from the monitor depending on how many blinks in between each pause lets service technicians know which breaker fuse or transistor needs to be replaced I would suggest taking it into a computer repair store and have them attempt to fix it however alot of the times its cheaper to just buy a new one
Try Unplugging the monitor and plugging back in again,,,you dont have to shut the PC down to do this,,,if it starts backup,,,then good... if it doesnt,,then you need another Monitor. An LCD monitor is better for your eyes anyway.
Try reseating your cable connections. While you have them off, take some compressed air and clean both the connection ports on the back of the computer and cable connections. Check to make sure there are no bent pins on the cable connectors. If you know how, you might also want to open your computer case and reseat your video card and clean your system out with the compressed air. Make sure your computer is completely shut down properly and is unplugged from the outlet when you do this and before you work inside the case make sure you touch the metal side to discharge any built up static electricity you may have so that it does not cause damage to the sensitive components inside your system. If possible you might want to take the monitor and connect it to another computer system, if it works properly on that system, more than likely it might be your video card. Hope this helps
