Check the DVI connections on your computer and your monitor. It is possible that there is not a good connection. Do you have access to another working monitor? If you connect a different monitor, and that monitor comes up, it could be the DVI cable or a bad monitor itself. If neither monitor comes up it could be a bad video card or port, or the computer may not recgonize it under Properties, Display, then settings when you right-click on the monitor, if you are using it as a second monitor.

It doesn't show the image from computer, the screen still black but the power light appears on.


Connect another monitor to the PC and confirm that the PC is working , specially the display drivers/card. If so the fault is only with the monitor and it can be related to power supply issue, a backlight inverter circuit shorting or a fault in the main board., all of this mightt require a good probe with the use of manual. So please check this out and confirm if the fault is with the monitor or the PC.

Sounds to me your high voltage powersupply is out. To repair open monitor and remove high voltage powersupply. Inspect the caps on the board. Look for the ends of the caps to be mushroomed out. Replace these caps, usally 470 uf caps. Replace with 25volt caps. Might also be some 100uf caps as well. This is a common problem with all LCD monitors.

IBM ThinkVision 17" Monitor displays for 1 second then black


This seems to be a common problem with these monitors. Have a look very closely and see if you can still see something there. From there, either send it to get repaired, or, if you are handy with a soldering iron, open it up and replace the 4 main capacitors (at least one of them will be "popped", but it is handy to replace them all.

In order to open the monitor, you will need to remove the stand, and make sure you get all of the screws out before attacking it with a screwdriver.
I have 5 IBM monitors at work with the same problem, and opening them up has shown the popped capacitors.
Again, only recommended if you know what you are doing. Screwing it up will leave you with nothing.

LCD flat panel monitor blinks logo over and over


Sounds like the LCD monitor is not getting a proper input signal. Check your cables between the computer and monitor. Replace them if need. Also check the pins and make sure that none are bent or disfigured.

Try a replacment monitor from a family member or friend. If their monitor works ok.....then your due for a replacment. The are very little user servicable parts inside.
