Re: monitor

Sound like you have a video card problem. You probably need to replace it. If you have another monitor you can use to test, plug it in to the pc, if it doesn't come on, you know it's probably the video card.

My lcd monitor is not working after power failure (syncmaster 170t) .

The monitor was probably fried during the power outage due to a spike just before the power went out.
On the power brick check to see if there is an LED light and see if that is lit when its plugged in. If its not lit up then you may want to try a new power brick, if it is lit up then your monitor is a dead.

AOC color monitor model 5En...during power on all led lights blinks then stops blinking without display action. all led lights on no more action observed.

actually if u repair an aoc monitor alone without getting connected to cpu once u switch on the monitor all led's will lit on ( green light ) it will remain on situation until u connect the vga connector to cpu that's the time led's will lit off and only the power led will remain in green condition.some aoc 5en once u power on power led is in green condition and if not connected to cpu it will be in orange condition.hope u get some idea but i am not sure if it will work with ur monitor. but as long as LEDs lit on i think no problem with ur monitor.

Green light won't stay on, changes to orange . Monitor stays black.

Sounds like a "power savings" feature.

If you are sure this issue is not a power saving feature, it means the inverter in the display is broken. The inverter is used to generate high voltage and lit the screen.

Monitor led light goes from green to orange will not respond

Your video card or on-board video is kaput. If it worked fine on the other system, but not working on this one ... then you've blow the video.

One note: When the computer is ON, do NOT unplug and re-plug in the monitor. You'll blow the video card.

Luckily, add-on video cards are cheap and readily available ...

Sir Help me with my Compaq monitor MV520 it won't turn the power led flashing orange to green continously

it could be th epower supply and it could be the monitor.
power ON button should not flash orange regardless what you do. it should stay green. then orange. not orange to green to orange.
try the monitor on another PC if you can fine one.
the other thing is are the 2 monitor similar (CRT to CRT and LCD to LCD), you can't mix the the two, they will work but need different video driver to function correctly.

You don't really need to replace the power supply, you can repair it by replacing the bad capacitors. I've done it to 2 Nec monitors and it works. However I do not believe its you power supply because you are getting the power on light.

Monitor shutoff

Hi, do you mean, when you power on the lcd monitor, then the display come for a while, then no display? May i know the power led light is still on or what's the led color lit? If the color of led still maintain the GREEN light, then you may have a inverter or lamp problem. If this is the problem you need to repair or change the inverter board or ccfl lamp. For more details, you can go to this site to get some repair idea.
