    Hello Brandonson. Thanks for your reply. I do believe that the pc is booting. Its just that the monitor is blank, the indicator light on the monitor is blinking amber and the monitor makes a clicking sound. Happens even if the pc is not turned on. Also the indicator light on the Wearnes Switching Adaptor is also blinking. I am wondering if that is normal for an adapter? I noticed on another similar looking adapter I have for a different product (adaptor specs for output are different ) the green indicator light is solid green. The specs for the Wearnes adapter are: INPUT 100-240V - 1.6A (max) 50-60Hz, OUTPUT 12V = 4A. If I can get another monitor to use to test that all's OK with pc I will do it. Also am thinking that I am going to take the adaptor to a shop... perhaps people there can tell if the adapter is causing the problem.

    Appreciating your interest and help with this puzzling problem! X2909

    Also, check your manual regarding the flashing lights and what they possibly mean. Like brandonson suggested, try the monitor on another pc; check your video card in your original pc like Danmart said. Also, is there any change at all when the pc boots up? If not, then check the manufacturer's warranty and possibly get a new one.

    question: Are you talking about a 'switching adapter" power supply? Or some type of 'switching monitor' adapter?

    Usually a 'blinking amber' light is NO SIGNAL to the monitor.That has to do with the video card not seated right in desktop,loose connections from monitor to card, damaged card, damaged monitor.The 'clicking' sound from monitor is the electronic reeds switching or the hard drive is acting up.Sometimes the read-write heads on h/d is bouncing around from one side to the other on the plantan (misspelled?)

    dont know what type of adapter that is... however ... if you hook up the monitor to another pc you can eliminate a possibility. if it works on another pc... is your pc booting up at all?

This problem is very often caused by dry electrolytic capacitors on the inverter board. If you have some skill with soldering you could try to change them. When buying new ones ask for LOW-ESR capacitors for switching mode power supplies (SMPS) and 105°C, they are a little bit more expensive than normal electrolytic capacitors, but are designed for this aplications so they lasts more. Normal el. caps will also works fine so when you cannot buy LOW-ESR for SMPS use normal ones.

First of all, there is one "chronic" problem with LG monitors: solders. Check soldering of Video Amplifier IC303, Flyback Transformer, Q833( ! 210V) , deflection coils socket, Vertical IC601, XTAL X401 and so on...
In Your case, probably the cause of "green, amber, amber" lights is lack of 15V on the Verical Amplifier IC601. DPMS is activated, and monitor does not work at all, even power off.
Replacing Q912 (2SA1273) solve the problem. I replaced him with 2SA1680 PNP 1A 900mW 60V, and all is OK.
This problem is fundamental for ALL 17'' Flatron monitors, repaired by me (over 30).

Wish Happy Repairing!

Best regards, Ico.

It is not a computer issue. It is a power issue with the monitor. A tiny capaciator needs to replaced which requires soldering.... better just buy a new monitor if not under warranty

I would suspect that it's your video card on your computer rather than your monitor itself.  That's just a huntch.  If you can grasp your hands on another video card, I would certainly try that.

SOURCE: dell flat panel monitor -power button blinks green to amber - no

One reason that this is happening could be that it is on Power saving mode. This happens when the LCD monitor detecs an incorrect timing then thats the time that the LCD goes blank and the power botton starts to blink.

what you need to do is to turn the computer off. Unplug cables attach to the LCD make sure it is also off, once done press the power botton for a couple of 30secs to a minute and then release. After doing so re-connect all the cables and make sure that both ends is tight and secure once everything is ok turn the computer on same with the monitor to check if it solves the problem.

Monitor wont come on.green lite on the switching adaptor is off.Is the adaptor bad or monitor bad? How do I get a new adaptor?Model # WDS048120


The lamp on the power supply adapter should be on the minute it is plugged onto the AC outlet without the DC plug connected to the monitor, if it is not on then the AC adapter is bad, you can check the DC voltage with a digital meter. Post back so we can guide you further.

The on/off of pc monitor (LCD) is blinking.


Most LCD monitor (depends on the brand) power indicator light will either turn from Green to Amber, or flashing Amber, or flashing green, when it does not detect video signal feeding it. So it may be normal with your monitor. Are you haivng problem with the display? If it displays he pictue OK then there is nothing to worry about.

I'm not clear about the blinking amber light you are referring to. Is it on the computer or the monitor.
I checked Dell's web site for the service manual for this computer model, & found this document:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8300/sm/adtshoot.htm#1102195

If the blinking amber light is on the monitor, check the connection between it & the computer itself. Make sure the cable is not damaged & that it does not have any broken pins in the socket.
