Dead monitor I just moved into a new house and as soon as I went to set up my computer my monitor did not power on. When I plug it in the on/off button flashes like its turning on but quickly turns off and nothing happens. I have tried both different power cables as well as different outlets.. Same results.. Am I out of luck or is it a simple fix..

Re: dead monitor

I've the same problem with my 1950. I'm told it is a problem with the logic card, and not the power supply. to 'The Marv', I don't know what the graphics card has to do with 'louee's' problem of the power not coming on..

Re: dead monitor

Make sure the monitor is connected to the right video graphics card. This will happen if you are using the wrong one. Because at one time someone added another graphics card. Move the computer and put the monitor cable back in the wrong port on the back of the computer.

My Acer TCO03- power button is just blinking but no picture display

Blow hot air into the back with a hair dryer before trying to start it.

(not kidding)

if that works, one of the capacitors on the power board went bad.

even if that does NOT work, one of the capacitors on the power board went bad.

It is ALWAYS one of the capacitors on the power supply gone bad.

Being unplugged for a few weeks - as you stated - drained it of "juice", and it just cr*pped out. It was going to fail soon, in any event.

Fixing it can cost you less than a dollar, if you Google for information.

Best of luck!

"Cannot display this video mode"

first thing check all power cables and monitor cables are plugged in properly , also you might check the monitor cable , inside the medal housing to see if any pins were broke off while moving. this would be an easy fix , just buy a new cable. if not check to see if you have a video card and that it is not moving around and properly seated to motherboard. if not most pc's are onboard video which would be entirely different issue. most of the time when moving pc's its usually a simple fix.

Monitor dead

Check your power cables properly and make sure it is attached. Check your power button, maybe you have pressed the wrong one.

My lcd monitor is not working after power failure (syncmaster 170t) .

The monitor was probably fried during the power outage due to a spike just before the power went out.
On the power brick check to see if there is an LED light and see if that is lit when its plugged in. If its not lit up then you may want to try a new power brick, if it is lit up then your monitor is a dead.

SyncMaster 204 Samsung monitor has no power

Have you tried to plug it in else where?
If you did and still same problem then from what you said I was hopping that it wouldn't be your problem, but you will need a new monitor.

Plug Dell e173fpb monitor in power light blinks green and small buzz noise


Based on what you have stated your Dell monitor is dead. Seek support/replacement under warranty. If you purchase this with a credit card you have a double warranty through your credit card. You'll have to suffer through Dell's phone support to allow them to troubleshoot your dead monitor but be patient and a new or newer model will be on its way to you soon.

Hope this helped you and fixed your dilemma.

CRT Monitor-Compaq presario VM700

Hi Snandy, I absolutely despise monitor and computer sleep or hibernation modes. Before I started routinely disabling this on all the computers I supported my users were always having problems no matter how computer literate they were. I know this sounds simplistic and you may have already done it but have you just unplugged the monitor? If that doesn?t work maybe the PC itself has gone to sleep as well. Try moving the mouse, hitting a keyboard key. If that doesn?t work try pushing the power button on the computer to turn it on. If all else fails pull the power plug on the computer itself, plug back in and it should start up. I would suggest disabling all of this via Windows Power settings in the control panel. Let us know if you have any other questions and again please don?t forget to rate the post.

No power to monitor

Your problem is really multiple problems. One is if the monitor blew out, the second is weather it damaged the computer when it went, the third is if the computer went first killin the monitor. I would first see if your computer is ok by turning it on with out any monitor connected and listen to hear if it sounds as usual. If not something may be wrong with your computer. If everything is ok plug in another monitor (borrow from a freind if you do not have a spare) and see that the computer is ok. If it's ok great but if there is a problem with the computer that is a whole new question.Next if the monitor's on light does not come on and you know it has power the monitor is most likely fried. Hope this helps and could use more details
