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.

Most laptops have a "toggle":

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...

I have a toshiba satellite laptop the screen is black


Shutting the computer down could be done by holding the Power Switch down for 10 seconds, rather than unplug/no battery "solution". A blank screen is more often than not caused by the failure of the screen's backlight. Plugging an external monitor in the ext monitor port would verify the computer still works, and I am sure it does.

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.
