Blinking Blue Power Led on front, Monitor is non-responsive

Does anyone know what this means? Maybe there's something loose inside....I'm not feeling real confident about taking it apart, I've torn apart laptops and computers before without problems, this seems a bit tougher. Is this going to serve as an expensive paper weight for me or do you think there's something I can do to fix? Nothing displays on screen, just blue power LED on front flashing every few seconds or so when plugged in. Any help is appreciated... Thanks! Josh

Re: Blinking Blue Power Led on front, Monitor is...

Hello, I had a similar proglem with the Blue light flashing briefly and getting a glimpse of the screen. I fixed it by replacing C922, a 1000uf 16volt electrolytic capacitor as was suggested in another section here. These capacitors bulge on top when they fail, so if yoy take off the back cover you can look for C922 and see if the top is bulging. Compare it with other similar capacitors on the board. Good luck.

How do I turn it on


To power on the Gateway VX750, press the power button on the front. The power button has 3 sides with a "G" in the middle.

The LED indicates the power status of the monitor.
  • Not lit - The monitor is turned off or does not have power connected.
  • Blinks one time and then goes off - The LED blinks one time when the monitor's power cord is plugged into an AC outlet to indicate that power is detected.
  • Lit solid blue - The monitor is turned on and active.
  • Blinking blue - The monitor is in power saving mode. Before entering power saving mode, a message briefly appears.
Hope this helps.

Blinking blue power light and greenish tint....

Is the monitor still under warranty? (probably only the first 12 months)

Try connecting the monitor to a different desktop/notebook computer, to see if it is fine.
If it is, you have a problem with the video-card in your computer, not a problem with your monitor.

There are "capacitors" inside the monitor, that serve to supply "smooth" and "ripple-free" power to the electronic circuits. If you have "bad" capacitors, they are not doing what they should be doing, which causes the electronics to malfunction.

So, if your monitor is a CRT monitor, it's time to responsibly recycle it, and buy a new one.

If your monitor is an LCD monitor, take it to any TV/video repair shop, and pay them $25 to $50 to "inspect" it, looking for "bad caps". Or, spend that $25 to $50 to buy a new LCD monitor.

Monitor lite blinks from blue to yellow

I bought my monitor last year and had it for only a couple of months and the same thing, it is blinking the yellow and blue led. I can't believe that so many people are having the same problem. I went to the I-INC web site and there is nothing posted about this problem. I think that they really need to address this and let the consumers know what is going on with this. I feel like just trashing this monitor. I ahd to end up buying a cheap bulky monitor to replace it.
