I have an AOpen F7OPS monitor. My daughter pressed the power button to turn off the monitor. When I pressed the button, the power light started blinking and doesn't display a picture. I tried unplugging everthing and restarted the computer, but I don't get a picture...just a blinking green light.
I connected a new VGA cable, but still have same result.

Re: 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!

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. .
Try it on another PC first, if it still does not work and you want to DIY repair, then please read below: Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague http://www.badcaps.net
Disconnect the display from the Computer and remove its power plug. While the display is turned off, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. After two minutes connect the power cord and the display cord to the Computer and the power source and turn it ON.
If the power indicator on the display keeps blinking, then it's required to open it up to repair it.
The solution: a hidden menuwithin the main menu itself. Hold the Menu button down while pressing Power topower on, and release power button only when the screen comes up, still holdingthe menu button. The menu will appear and there will now be a hidden selection,"Auto Color", printed in a red-on-black font at the bottom of themenu. Use the +/- buttons to access it, and press Menu. My green/yellow tintwent away! Now my picture works great, and the setting lasts throughAuto-Adjusts and Resets!

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
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..
ok, get to the event where you get this to happen "...then turn it back on the monitor does come on normally...", but just after power-up, press the F8 key to go to safe mode. If nothing visible, press ENTER anyway...get to safe mode yet?
