No Display? However, I do get power and the green light remains constant.
On checking the vga (male)connector, attached to the monitor - I notice a pin is missing in the second row (pin 4).
Can I change the lead/vga connector fairly easily, if I open up the monitor?
It is my son's monitor and would like to do simple home repair/ at little-no cost if poss. Any advice, would be very much appreciated.
Actually pin 4 is supposed to be missing, that's normal. What you should do is try these troubleshooting techniques:
1. Do you get a no signal on the monitor screen. If so, there can be something wrong with the computer or you can have a short in the cord.
2. Try connecting the monitor to another computer. If it works then you've found your problem. If not, consider purchasing a new monitor. Especially if it's a CRT, because they carry some really high voltage that will harm you if you don't know what you're doing.

Since you don't provide the laptop model, I assume your PC has at least a 15 Pin VGA connector. You will need a 15 pin male VGA to 15 pin male VGA cable, just plug it at the laptop and the monitor, that should do. If your laptop has also an HDMI or DVI or Display Port, you will need a proper cable or adapter.
You can try a different cable for VGA. Check if the port is lose. The green light is only indicating a proper power supply to the monitor. The display is very much dependent on the VGA cable. If your monitor also has HDMI port, you can try to connect using that cable (provided the display adaptor also has HDMI port). If nothing works for you, take it to a hardware engineer or local repair shop.
The LED blinking light usually means that the attached PC is not powered on or the VGA connector (end of cable connected from the monitor to the PC) on the monitor, the cable or the VGA port on the PC is faulty.
Try your monitor on another computer. If it works, there is a problem with your PC. If it doesn't work, the VGA connector, the monitor's VGA cable or the monitor itself, is faulty.
The monitor comes with DVI and VGA (DB15HD 3-ROW HIGH DENSITY) connectors. If your PC only have VGA (DB-15HD) output for the monitor, then you need to use VGA cable (DB-15HD Male to Male) for connection. Hope I explained clearly.
actually if u repair an aoc monitor alone without getting connected to cpu once u switch on the monitor all led's will lit on ( green light ) it will remain on situation until u connect the vga connector to cpu that's the time led's will lit off and only the power led will remain in green condition.some aoc 5en once u power on power led is in green condition and if not connected to cpu it will be in orange condition.hope u get some idea but i am not sure if it will work with ur monitor. but as long as LEDs lit on i think no problem with ur monitor.
The vga cable is a DB15, 3 ranks with male connector at each end,
(you can use a vga extention and add a little male to male adaptor at the female end to get finaly 2 males connectors)
And, the power cord is in fact an ac/dc adaptor, the replacement part is: 12b27-0428 (12v 5A 60w 4 pins) ...
just type de number 12b27-0428 on internet and you're on ...
You will have to buy a 13 Pin Din Male Connector cord. Use the break-down below to help with reconfiguring.

That usually means that the connection between the PC and the monitor has been interupted- check that the cable (probably has blue ends) between the two is firmly connected, and power it back up. If that doesn't work, you have one of three problems; a broken VGA cable, a broken monitor, or a broken video card.
Finding out which- you'll actually need someone tech-savvy there to help you figure that out. Try plugging the monitor into a different computer. If that fails, use a different VGA cable (cables are pretty cheap at monoprice.com), and if that fails, it's your video card.
