    If this monitor is a new replacement for an existing CRT monitor, it is likely that the display refresh rate in windows is just set too high. If that is not the case, and this monitor has worked well in the past, then you likely have some failure within the monitor itself. The later model LCD's with internal power supplies (ac cord plugs into back of monitor) tend to cook capacitors. You didn't indicate whether the display or the power indicator light was what was blinking, you may have a backlight problem.

Help me, dish network hd monitor,model 34-310. made in 2004. wont turn on,on button blinks and attempts to,turn on but screen remains blank. tries three times and blinks a green light. no picture,no sound....


It is the right age for failure---IF you are able look inside at the power supply for bad caps---I will attach photos of what to look for.

The three tries is what is called a three strikes and you are out (no joke)----the unit has built into it (many do) a feature where it will try 3 times to make it up and on and if fails shuts down or stops trying.

Self-Test Feature Check (STFC) Your monitor provides a self-test feature that allows you to check whether your monitor is functioning properly. If your monitor and computer are properly connected but the monitor screen remains dark, run the monitor self-test by performing the following steps:
  1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
  2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer. To ensure proper Self-Test operation, remove Analog (blue connector) cables from the back of computer.
  3. Turn on the monitor. The floating 'Dell - self-test Feature Check' dialog box should appear on-screen (against a black background) if the monitor cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains green and the self-test pattern will scroll through the screen continually.
  4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.

Thanks
