You could check the VGA cable from the replicator to the monitor, but a problem with that will usually cause a "NO SIGNAL" message to appear. So your issue seems to lie within the monitor. It could be that the backlight has quit. That can be determined by booting the laptop and connecting it to the replicator, or perhaps to the monitor directly, and observe the screen using a good flashlight, place the flashlight flush on the screen in an area where you would expect to see an icon or some recognizable image. Look closely to see if the image can be seen. If the image is there, then the screen is ok but the backlight is out. The problem is usually the inverter. A reputable shop might be able to replace that.

My LG flatiron W1943TB turns on, says analog power saving mode, goes black and then the power button flashes.. but the monitor is hooked up to my dell notebook bc my LCD died


Hi erin mckinle,
That is probably it's, uh, analog power saving mode. When the screen goes black and the power button flashes, make some mouse gestures or hit some keys that would not affect anything (try spacebar). That should bring up the screen. If you think it goes into power saving mode too fast, go to Control Panel --> Power Options, and change the values. Hope this helps.

Blank screen and flashing green light near on/off switch


fred_lane, Well, it could also be just black, or both black and blank! DID you do flashlight test that every CCFL back-lit lcd monitor owner should know how to perform and interpret the results for when confronted with a black screen problem that is not caused by sleep mode?? I can only suspect a bad "switch-mode-power-supply" that is in partial or full SHUTDOWN mode due to it detecting a FAULT CONDITION with itself or the CCFL inverter circuit supply. Read other options you have open to you in my fixya profile! 12fixlouie Hope this steers you in good direction.

The hp mx 705 monitor was working,then it just went blank and black. the power button light, just blinks green.


If the computer is attached properly and you get the flashing lights it is due to switch mode power supply being faulty, too expensive to fix I think you will find, never seems to be anything like just a fuse I'm afraid, modern worlds tells you its time for you next monitor..... do try to ensure it aint the pc by hooking laptop or something else to this unit, or hooking another monitor to your pc to be sure but I find power supply failure is normally how monitors leave this world...

Had a Acer al2017


If your picture was okay when it was running and the screen was not pinkish then the power board inside the monitor is in need of an overhaul.
Your unplugging it and plugging it back in just did a temporary reset by discharging the capaciotrs for a bit.
It more than likely needs new capacitors installed.
I have done a few of these and do a lot of inverter power board repairs through ebay id bammbammfran

Sounds like the invertor board in the monitor is bad or the LCD screen has had it and needs replacing.
