Re: monitor

I would check the cable and connector pins first. Then I would suspect there's a problem with the video signal board inside the monitor. It could be the LCD panel controls, too. That would make the unit beyond economical repair unless you got a used one.

Since you hadd confirmed that the monitor is faulty with a swap then it seems that the input signal processor is faulty.
Only a signal test will confirm the fault in the stage , so check from the power supply section to see if the set has tripped off due to a protection- if so check the output drivers.

Power light blinks yellow and then green, won't display any picture. just black

there could be a few issues here.

1. backlight may have gone out how you can check:

Take a flash light to the display if you see something then its your back light,

2. Power supply inside the unit, unplug the unit take the back off then uncover the shoud that covers the power supply and check for bulging capacitors if you have bad capacitors this can happend as well.

3. check the monitor with another computer and so forth.

Ok i start with the worse to the least cause of your issue, i hope this information does help please do make sure you leave your ratings for your advice before you leave.

AOC color monitor model 5En...during power on all led lights blinks then stops blinking without display action. all led lights on no more action observed.

actually if u repair an aoc monitor alone without getting connected to cpu once u switch on the monitor all led's will lit on ( green light ) it will remain on situation until u connect the vga connector to cpu that's the time led's will lit off and only the power led will remain in green condition.some aoc 5en once u power on power led is in green condition and if not connected to cpu it will be in orange condition.hope u get some idea but i am not sure if it will work with ur monitor. but as long as LEDs lit on i think no problem with ur monitor.

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!

Blinking power button

It could also be because there is a problem with the display controller in the computer. Try to hook up another monitor to this computer and see if it comes up. If it does not work with another monitor, the computer will need servicing. If the display does come up, the Samsung monitor will need service. Good Luck
