Question about R.A.M. Computers IX PACIUP4240 15'' LCD TV / DVD / PC CIU Combo (2.4 GHz and 256MB RAM ) (PACIUP4240L) PC Desktop

1 Answer

HP LCD monitor power button repeatedly blinking blue.

My computer is about a year old. It is a Compaq media edition and in excellent condition. About a week ago my monitor went into standby whenever I would turn my computer off, whenever I would turn the system back on - I could not see a thing on the screen. So I switched the monitor out, thinking if it didn't work it would be the tower itself. Well, it worked and now I am using one of those big, clunky, white old school monitors without sound, which drives me crazy when I cannot listen to music/watch tv shows etc.

I've tried everything that I know of to fix this problem, but no matter what I do - the power light still blinks blue. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm trying to save the 200 bucks it would cost to go get it looked at.

    No, it wasn't a duel monitor. My monitor was not working so I simply unplugged it and hooked up another moniter. I'm still trying to fix my lcd monitor, which is the one that's blinking repeatedly.

    I figured as much, thank you.

Alright let me be the first, let's check the simple things first. Did you try toggling the FN+F5 or FN+F6....if it is playing on the other monitor you already did that or it was toggled for dual monitor and that's why you're not getting any video.

    I apologize I thought you were using a laptop....however, given the fact that you can use a monitor then it is not your Compaq but rather the monitor itself. There are no tricks or troubleshooint methods on DeskTop monitors as they are simple like televisions. The problem is inside the monitor and that can only be serviced by someone who works on monitors or T.V.s. The monitor carries an alarming amount of electricity that can cause electrocution to an untrained individual.

How do I troubleshoot an unresponsive HP LCD monitor?


The easiest thing to do is find another monitor to plug in to determine if it is the monitor or the computer. Just because something has been stored does not mean that something fried the first time you plugged it back in. LCD monitors are notorious for having bad capacitors.

About how old is a 17" compaq 7600 monitor?-any reliability issues with this one?


This monitor is 2-3 years old.

There are not any real reliability issues, but it is a crt monitor, meaning that it uses more power then todays lcd monitors.

Its worth about $50 used.

I have a HPw1907 monitor and it will turn on for about 2 seconds, and it turns off. The CPU is fine, just a problem with the monitor. Any way to fix this?


We have the same model of monitor and had the same problem few days ago. The monitor just goes black/turns off. I noticed that the power button has a yellow blinking light and cannot be turn on/off again using the power button. The CPU is working fine also. When I turn off the avr, the power button's light turns blue for a few second and you can hear a click sound from the back of the lcd before it totally turns off. My lcd monitor is over a year old now and is 110v or 220v capable. Mine was originally in a 220v, i just put it in 110v and the monitor was fixed.. Hope this can somehow fix your problem.

HP f1703. After a power outage, when computer is


Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Computer power button for the monitor blinks blue


there are two reasons for this to happen there are blown capacitors inside the monitor and or there transistors on the board that have failed. both can be repaired.

Blue power button flashing with blank screen


This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's the problem. You can confirm that it's the monitor and not your computer or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try.

If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old it is, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

Power Light Blinking & Black Screen


A blinking blue light indiactes that your power-inverter board is not putting out what it should. It needs an overhaul which may be a simple as changing out the capacitors on the boards.
It could go beyong that to transistors or even a bad bulb.
It will have to be opened up to do that.
A picture may show visual signs of damage. If you can take one and email it to me , I'll take a look.
