If there is a flashing led on front of the monitor, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1 The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours, sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occurr suddenly are a blown capacitor on power board, the inverter board powering up backlight lamp has blown, or a fault on main lcd controller board.
check also the video cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

Check connectors, try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

If under warranty contact manufacturer to find out a service point.

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Monitor not display anything and it lighs just keep blinking


Try re-seating the video cable. Try another monitor on this computer if you have one available. Try this monitor on another computer. That will narrow down where the problem lies. It's either the video card or the monitor which is bad. Of course if either is under warranty you may get a replacement, if not get your credit card ready :-) Good luck to you! =============== I would also look at the cable connection and see if there are any bent pins. This has caused issues for me in the past. Just be careful rebending the pins if any are bent. They are fragile and may snap off.

No picture - power button is blinking green


The "blink" is an indication that the monitor is *NOT* getting any signal from your computer's video-card. Either your video-card is the problem, or your computer is "sleeping", and you cannot "wake" it.

Reboot your computer, and watch the monitor, to see if anything at all is displayed.

Reboot with a different monitor connected, to see if anything at all is displayed.

If another monitor works, your monitor is the problem. If neither monitor works, it's the vide-card inside your computer that is the problem.

When it's turned on, the light on my monitor blinks but the screen doesn't display anything. Why might this be happening, and how can I fix it? Monitor will go on for a split second, then screen will go...


they normally turn off like this when they aren't receiving a video signal from the pc (same as when you turn off the pc). make sure that it is connected properly, and that the video output is activated. try disconnecting from the other monitor while its on and connect the problem monitor...if it still isn't working then there may be a problem with the cable or the monitor itself. Try another VGA or DVI cable. Hope this helps

HD19A / 19-Inch light flickers but no display


One of 2 possibilities come to mind. 

 

1,  The vga chord is loose on the back of the monitor.

2, Your resolution is set too high or low to be displayed.

 

The blinking light means that the monitor is either not getting or understanding a signal.

 

Hope this helps.
