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..

    Took the tower in for video card replacement and now the monitor won't power up. Power button and screen flicker briefly when power is connected and that is all.

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..

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!

Yesterday my electricty went off and now I can't get my monitor to come back on. The power light is flashing. I've tried unplugging it and plug it back in and then hold in on the power button. But so far...


Hey

Flashing means generally that the monitor is in stand by mode since there is no signal from the computer.

If possibly try the monitor on another machine and another monitor with the computer to norrow down the problem.

Please let me know the results of the above and if you have any questions or requests I will be available and will answer to them as soon as possible.

Blackout on plug in!


Try your monitor on another computer or another monitor on your PC. This will tell you if the monitor has a problem or your video card (or connection).

Green Flash power only on one computer


It sounds like the monitor functions properly and your computer functions properly, but the combination causes a problem. Try making sure the screen resolution on your main computer is set to an acceptable resolution for your monitor - AL1916. Try setting it low to 800x600 and move up from there until it doesn't work anymore. You can change the screen resolution from the Display Settings (right click on the desktop and select Display Settings) window.

NO POWER AT ALL!


Does the power supply have its own power switch?

It is located next to where the power wire plugs into the back of the PC.

Monitor flashes image for split second then goes blank but green LED flashes as well


while the monitor is still powered on, but with the LED flashing, unplug the monitor from the PC. press the power button, and the monitor should go off, now plug the pc back into the monitor. Turn the monitor back on and it should work.

Occasionally this will not work for me, but if I repeat it it normally works

Hope this helps - my problem is intermitant so it may be different to what u guys have
