    Do you get any tones when you start up? Can you hear the hard drive spinning? If you get the normal start up tones try plugging an external monitor into the eMac and check for a display signal. It may be either video failure, or screen failure.

My eMac has no port for an external monitor. I've heard that there is a way to install one but it seems that to do this the computer must be partially disassembled. Being that there is like 8 million volts of electricity stored somewhere inside the CRT I would not attempt this yourself. You might get electrocuted. This is the problem with all in one computers. When the monitor goes it is an expensive repair.

Monitor won't go on


What to you mean by Monitor won't go on? Are you saying the power on the monitor will not turn on? Are you saying the Monitor is on, but there is nothing showing on the screen? Also it would help if we know what kind of computer and what operating system.

Vsonic flat screen monitor need blink codes


hi do you mean you are asking for the blinking codes on your viewsonic pc monitor?. usually lcd monitor for pc has no blinking codes, if your monitor just only a blinking indicator and won't turn on, you must check first the source from your pc if their is a signal to turn on the monitor. if just blinking only then won't turn on you must check the power supply of the monitor usually the main cause is bulging capacitor. just replace it with the same value and rating thanks for consulting the fixya good luck.

When i turn on my pc, the cpu works perfectly while the monitor "syncmaster591s"....when i turn on the monitor the light (green) beside the button of the monitor is blinking


Try a different monitor...if the different one won't come up then the prob is your video card in the computer...if it does work then the monitor is defective...it would probably be cheaper to get a new monitor than to have the syncmaster fixed
