Screen won't turn on

You can try to do the monitor self test.
Monitor Self Test:
1. Physically test the monitor autonomously from the computer.2. Switch both the monitor and the computer off, and then disconnect the VGA cable le from the computer.3. Turn the monitor on, pressing the power button for about three seconds. The self-test screen will come up .4. If the image is clear, bright, and shows red, green, and blue, the monitor is working properly. Video issues may be due to the video resolution in the computer, and not the monitor.5. If the image is not apparent and intense or the colors are not accurate, then the trouble is with the monitor or some of the (OSD) settings. In this case, test your particular monitor's information for OSD.
It is always important to check the color of your power light for so you can distinguish if the monitor is defective. Getting red lights on the the power panel states that the power section of the monitor is faulty.

My computer monitor is a black screen....the light is lit solid green and I can hear the software playing just no picture

If the light is green, I suspect that the backlight has gone out on you. This could also be caused by you having the brightness turned all the way down.

Gateway FPD1750 monitor's keep go black screen, no picture at al

tgordon60, If you know how those NEW "CURLIE-Q" energy efficient CFL light bulbs produce WHITE LIGHT, then you will know what makes an LCD display panel produce all the pretty colors and the WHITE BACKGROUND of the FIXYA web page!!! Only difference is that your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" are thinner and straight, and hung on rear of LCD glass panel and have a DC to AC electronic ballast called an "INVERTER" circuit to produce 600 to 1000vac to light them up. Get to my FIXYA profile and read my responses to other BLACK screen lcd owners to learn about all your options for repair. Follow any of the links to other web pages you find there. Your monitor not any different than ACER, DELL, VIEWSONIC, BENQ, SONY, AOC!!!!! 12fixlouie aka louie12fix

Lg2234s monitor goes of blinking...cant turn monitor off (blue light remains off) then monitor turns on ..screen pic returns but is totally green, the OSD becomes garbled, if set to return to default then...

emale36, Could be problem with the "switch-mode-power-supply" inside the unit. If dc voltage rail is noisey or marginally on the low side of rated specification then strange things will start to occur on screen. Contact LG (Lucky-Goldstar) if unit is covered by warranty. The unit will need to be evaluated by technician. Visit YOUTUBE to see video clips of monitore being repaired by their owners. Read more of my profile responses to other LCD owners. 12fixlouie

Monitor Not Showing A Picture. Light flashes Yellow and Green.

use the onboard graphics instead of a seperate graphics card (if installed) to test the screen.if it still doesn't work then unplug your monitor from the mains supply and plug in again to reset it. i doubt it's your monitor that is the problem though. but look on the back of your pc for another connection for your screen. the onboard graphics connection is normally vertical near your ethernet port and mouse and keyboard inputs.

please rate me and give me a fixya! if it helped.
