Hi,

Definitely an internal power supply issue. Dell uses a combo inverter/PSU board with P/N 790441202. This particular board uses a tablet type fuse very near the AC jack. Should a replacment be warranted rather than component level repair, pls reference this page.

This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

No power


Look if you can safely get it apart for the fuse inside the unit and if possible test the power cord and where it connects, this is the place to begin---total dead units are usually easy to fix, follow the AC voltage from the wall or voltage source inside to the fuse etc.

When i try to turn on my moniter the light keeps flashing and nothing happens, i tried unplugging it and plugging it back in nothing seems to work


Look inside first for bad DC filter caps in the power supply.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

I usually replace or the caps in the DC side of the power supply (5v for the logic and the 12~18vdc for backlight inverter circuits).
If you hear squealing sounds then it can be that the inverter oscillator circuits may not be running at the correct frequency due to either bad tunning caps or bad inverter transformers. Please provide model number.

Don't know how to turn it on


Check power lead,press the button on the right at the bottom of the screen if a light comes on then it is on. Start PC, light should go green and monitor should give a display. If there is no life at all then the monitor is dead, change it :( If the light is on but starting PC doesn't give a display then check lead from PC, try another monitor with PC and if it works change resolution to something basic like 1026 x 768 @ 60Hz then try the acer again. If another monitor doesn't work your PC has a graphics problem; Check the lead thoroughly, check in bios settings the display is set right, try a new graphics card

My monitor won't turn on?


If there is no power at all then it is either the power cable or the power supply board inside the monitor.

The part must be tested before replacement.

Green Power light blinking


Check the resolution in the Windows while connected to the old monitor. If greater than 1280 X 1024 and/or the refresh rate exceeds 75 Hz, the monitor may not respond. But you should at least see the BIOS splash when the computer is turned on. If that does not appear, maybe a problem has occurred in the monitor. Another indicator: if you turn the monitor power button off and then back on, you should get some sign of life such as "no signal", or "out of range". If nothing appears, that would indicate some problem within the monitor.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

I would suggest that the "Event" that caused the CB to trip has caused ya Monitor to fail.. Probably in the Power Supply, My "Pet" area... lol.. anyway Thats wat I would think. It may even have an internal "Fuse" that has "Blown"?

The circuit breaker popped due to power fluctuation or something else ? It is clearly understood that your LCD monitor suffered some component burn inside otherwise it would show 'NO SIGNAL' sort of Display if it is not connected. There is nothing to resset. Please open it up & check if there is any sign of burned component or take it to a service center if it is still under warrenty.
