    Thanks for the input I certainly appreciate your Speedy Response.



    I should have started in reverse. I can't get the cover off the darn thing. Your suggestion very good however I only have one input. Cables are tight. My monitor is a dell E173FPf 17" Flat Panel LCD.

    AS I OPENED THE CASE I NOTICED THAT THE RIBBON CONNECTOR WAS OLD, BRITTLE AND BROKEN AWAY FROM THE PLUG END into the circuit board.

Try the obvious first: make sure the cable from your computer is connected tightly to both the computer and the monitor.

Does your monitor have several receptacles for connecting different kinds of cables? If so, there is probably a way to tell it which one is active; my monitor has a button on the front labelled "Input". Look for something similar (switch, button, etc) and try it. Wait a second to see if you get a response; if not, press it again. If you have 4 plugs on your monitor, you may have to do this 4 times.

If you can tell me more about your monitor (make and model) or upload a picture of the place where the cable connects to the monitor, that might give some clues.

Look for bad caps with bulging top in the power supply first, post back what you see inside so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps (after about 2 years): http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Samsung Sync Master 914 has no picture. When power supply is only in, green light flashes slowly. When both power and vga are in, green light flashes more quickly. I hear a faint clicking sound coming...


I would check the caps with ohm meter. Make sure they all show increasing resistance. Caps can be bad without looking bad. Check output voltage on the power board, should be around 12V. If all that checks out then I'd look next at the backlight bulb. I'v repaired many monitors and the problem was almost always overheated caps on the power board. Post back and let me know.

When turned on - green power light comes on then screen momentarily flashes - very quick flashes every second or so.


Are you getting any video on the screen? I would make sure the power cord in the back of the monitor is securely seated. Make sure the video cable from the monitor to your desktop is screwed in tight as well.
Hope that helps

I think you have loose cabling somewhere. Try to unplug (and untangle) the video cables and then plug them all back together firmly. If this does not work and you know your machine is booting up properly, you might have damaged the monitor somehow accidentally.
