    thanks for the response, but it's the damest thing, I read one post that said he fixed his monitor by unplugging it and pluging it back in, and it worked. I feel like an idiot...

    This works for a few weeks, but then the problem reoccurs. Did the power off/on thing and again fix the issue. Now nothing works.

To solve this problem you have to replace the 8 capacitors in the power supply. It is better if you replace all at the same time even if there is only one bad, this way you make sure your monitor will work longer. normally this capacitor are rated for 1000 hours, also check the other ones, the 10mf is the one that helps start the on and off. if you replace all of them it will probably cost you about 10 dollars not bad for a good monitor.
if you have any questions fill free to ask me and I will help you.
good luck.

I have not picture.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

Screen won't turn on


You can try to do the monitor self test.
Monitor Self Test:
1. Physically test the monitor autonomously from the computer.2. Switch both the monitor and the computer off, and then disconnect the VGA cable le from the computer.3. Turn the monitor on, pressing the power button for about three seconds. The self-test screen will come up .4. If the image is clear, bright, and shows red, green, and blue, the monitor is working properly. Video issues may be due to the video resolution in the computer, and not the monitor.5. If the image is not apparent and intense or the colors are not accurate, then the trouble is with the monitor or some of the (OSD) settings. In this case, test your particular monitor's information for OSD.
It is always important to check the color of your power light for so you can distinguish if the monitor is defective. Getting red lights on the the power panel states that the power section of the monitor is faulty.

Magnavox 15mf605t/17 15'' LCD HDTV won't turn on


Have similar TV. If it is set to the PC source, it goes into standby when there is no signal, like a regular monitor. Even though the monitor is in standby, you can still press the Source button to change to, say, HD input, and will use the familiar on/off action when pressing Power on the remote.

A little weird, but I've gotten very used to it.
