Question about AOpen 19" LCD

Power Light Blinks with no display on screen

I have an AOpen Monitor Model 75Ps with speakers, which I purchased in 2003. When I power up my computer, the power light blinks for about 15 minutes with no display showing on the screen. Then the light becomes constant and the display on the screen becomes visible. Can this be repaired easily. If so how? If not, please advise where I can get it repaired. Also, any idea how much a repair of this type would cost?

Thanks for te assistance.

Hi  
If you switch on your screen it just goes dead again. If this is the case then all you have to do is replace your backlights of your lcd. The backlight are florescent tubes Which are gas filled and they have a lifespan of plus/minus two to five years. Once the gas is depleted the backlights try to go on then switches off
This problem occurs alot on all different lcd screens eg. ibm, gigabye and alot of other name brands and even the cheapies. the backlights come in different lengths so you have to open your screen and remove them carefully so that you dont damage or crack the liquid crystal. i have been repairing lcd screens for a while and this is the problem most of the time. 
You can order the backlights from RS components. They supply and sell backlights if you wish to do it yourself
Glad to be of any assistance

Does this happen when it has been off for an extended period of time?

What I am getting at is this...

I've had devices (monitors included) that when they were cold (just turned on) they didn't want to function right, but after a while of it being on, then they would function right.

As far as repair, I have found no schematics nor sites with replacement parts. My only suggestion is to call their customer service:

Phone: 800-444-8086 (ext. 203 or ext. 204)
E-mail: rma@aopencenter.com

Sorry I couldnt do more.
Have a Happy Holiday,
TJ

My AOpen 19" LCD Flat Screen Monitor (Model F2915) is like new and works perfectly except for one thing. The push button power switch located on the top of the monitor has broken off and fallen insid


Certainly, if you jumper the connections to see which ones turn the monitor on or off, then you can go to an electrical supply place and get a micro switch and wire it in in place of the power button, or perhaps find a type that is flat that the power button can press. What you need to determine is if it is a push-on, push -off type switch, which always stays on or off depending on position or if it is a momentary interrupt switch where the button pressed momentarily turns it on and then releases and a second press connects the circuit to turn it off. You can do this by testing with your jumper wire, attach it and if the monitor stays on when you remove it, then goes off when you attach it again, you need the second type switch, if it goes off when removed, you need the always-on always -off first type switch. .

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!

When it's turned on, the light on my monitor blinks but the screen doesn't display anything. Why might this be happening, and how can I fix it? Monitor will go on for a split second, then screen will go...


they normally turn off like this when they aren't receiving a video signal from the pc (same as when you turn off the pc). make sure that it is connected properly, and that the video output is activated. try disconnecting from the other monitor while its on and connect the problem monitor...if it still isn't working then there may be a problem with the cable or the monitor itself. Try another VGA or DVI cable. Hope this helps

Flashing green power light - Black screen


I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard

Power problem


ok..I do believe thathe cable is connected to the monitor, right? have you checked your system unit if its also turned on? if it does, try to reseat your cable wire of your monitor( make it snugged fit and tight to avoid loose connections) then try to replugged it to the power source..
