Self-Test Feature Check (STFC) Your monitor provides a self-test feature that allows you to check whether your monitor is functioning properly. If your monitor and computer are properly connected but the monitor screen remains dark, run the monitor self-test by performing the following steps:

  1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
  2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer. To ensure proper Self-Test operation, remove Analog (blue connector) cables from the back of computer.
  3. Turn on the monitor. The floating 'Dell - self-test Feature Check' dialog box should appear on-screen (against a black background) if the monitor cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains green and the self-test pattern will scroll through the screen continually.
  4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.

Thanks
proton

Light on power on switch keeps blinking, screen blank.


Definitely a problem with the monitor. If you can get the back open then look at the main board and the power board. You will want to look for puffy capacitors. Instead of a flat top it will look puffy like its pregnant.

If you find any like that then you need to replace them with new capacitors that have the same Uf rating and at least the same voltage or higher.

This will take some unsoldering and soldering skills. Make sure the stiped edge gets aligned with the striped edge on the board.

If you replaced them then the monitor should turn back on. If it doesn't then its a screen problem and you'll need to get a new monitor.

Monitor power light is blinking. The screen is blank.


Hopefully it will go away if you can re-install your video driver. I guess it depends on how fast it blinks. These monitors are not easy to fix. Try and connect to different computer. Let's hope you can reinstall the driver and not have to service monitor.

Dell monitor blank. nothing appears on screen. light is blinking by minitor power button, but nothing at all on screen. I hooked up to my laptop, still nothing. Checked power/ tried new power cable. No...


Make sure you set up your laptop to display to a second screen. Depending on your Operating system, go to your display properties and go to the settings tab. Then click on the second monitor and enable it.

First if you have a extra monitor try to plug it in and see if it works. If not then check your video card. or get into the computer and try and remove and reseat the memory. Sometimes by just doing that can solve the problems
