Monitor was working last night, this morning no power and black screen. I have tried different monitor with my power cords and they are good. Have borrowed monitor until problem is fixed. Any help from you will be appreciated.
I got the same problem.. few years old.. i turned the monitor off yesterday.. and it wouldn't come back on.. i messed with the plugs for about an hour.. nothing.. i kept it on overnight and the next day(today) it started.. so beofre you go and dump it.. let it warm up for a day and see if anything happens.. now i'm scared to turn it off.
Is this a Gateway FPD1960 monitor? If so the power supply inside of it died. It is a common problem with these. I repair the Gateway FPD1960 monitor so if you want to trash it let me know.

Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Hi Michael, it does sound like the monitor then. The most likely cause is bad capacitors in the power supply. Typically a cheap repair but you do have to solder and such. Unless you have to have a very expensive monitor its probably better to just replace it since basic monitors are so cheap these days. Good luck.
If the monitor is fitted with moister sensors it will as a safety measure not turn on, this can be due to damp in the room etc.
Second and more probable is the fuse has blown on the circuit board to the monitor. you will unplug power lead open back up and look for a smaller than plug size fuse which is chrome ended and clear glassed. About 3/4 inch long and 1/8th dia.
Ensure these are replaced with a similar graded fuse. Maplins is a safe bet to obtain them. best to take old one in with you.
Firstly check the power cables nd VGA port is it proper or not nd then if this is proper then ur problem might be in RAM remove the ram and rub it with eraser nd insert it again nd check CMOS battery also ....u will surely get a positive result....
IF it is not an adaptor-powered screen, try to exchange the tripol-power cord and try again. Else you may have to rely on warranty/ return it to where you purchased it or ask electronics dealer for support. If adaptor powered, buying a new one should be the last option, else you may end up with a broke monitor and two working adaptors!
Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.
