Re: Black Screen

Busta, Other than making sure all your connections are tight and the swift kick doesn't work anymore your monitor may be telling you its time is almost up. How old is it? Call compaq make a stink if it isn't too old. Not what you wanted to hear. Good Luck, Tim

I've got a Scanport H21 monitor that the green light comes on but has a black screen. Can not dring up a menu or "VGA IN" message.

You can try a different cable for VGA. Check if the port is lose. The green light is only indicating a proper power supply to the monitor. The display is very much dependent on the VGA cable. If your monitor also has HDMI port, you can try to connect using that cable (provided the display adaptor also has HDMI port). If nothing works for you, take it to a hardware engineer or local repair shop.

HI. I had the same problem with mine. It would flash the screen on for a split second and then turn black, the whole time the power light remained green. Upon opening up the case, I pulled the combo power supply board/inverter board out for inspection. I noticed one of the capacitors had a bulge on top indicating it was bad. It was the the 680uf 25v capacitor. I desoldered it, and soldered in the new one. After hooking everything back up, bingo!! Monitor now works perfectly. I couldn't find an exact match to the capacitance locally, but I had a 1000uf 35v cap in my utility box. It worked fine as a replacement. You can usually go within 30 percent of tolerance and be alright. Just don't go under on capacitance or voltage. I hope this helps.

Problem solved! The main power thingy (the thing with the big red wire coming out of it) was all black and dusty. There was 'soot' all over the whole insides of the monitor. I concluded that this monitor should be laid to rest, and a new flat-screen monitor erected in its place.
