Your problem description tells me you may have a failing power supply. Or you may have problems on the motherboard in the form of failed capacitors. I would check the capacitors first. Bad capacitors can usually be found by simple visual inspection. A failed capacitor will appear to be swelled on the end as the exposed aluminum can will show a "domed" appearance instead of being flat, sometimes they will actually split. Look at each capacitor, especially in the area close to the processor/heatsink. If capacitors are the problem it won't be just one! they are replaceable by someone with the replacement parts, and sufficient soldering skills and tools. If the caps look good, I would suspect the power supply.

Emachine T3414 monitor


Turn off the computer and monitor. Disconnect the monitor. Turn on the monitor. You should get some indication the monitor is on, if not it is probably dead.

If the monitor seems to be on, try to enter the menu by using the buttons or knobs on the monitor. If the menu comes up, the monitor is probably good and you have a computer problem.

If you think the monitor is bad, hook it up to an operational computer. If it works, you definitely have a computer problem; if not the the monitor is definitely dead.

Either way try to have the problem resolved under the warranty.
