If the monitor has no power at all then you have a dead power board, or a broken power cord, test also a different wall AC outlet.

If instead 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.

Your computer may not be seeing your second monitor. Go to your display settings and see if you computer is seeing monitor 2.

It can be the problem in the backlight inverter board or the power supply problem. You need to open it up and start looking for bad caps with bulging top first. Post back what you see inside. See example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Monitors work well for a while then have trouble booting up


It is a symptom that like T.V's usually manifest before they go busted. I also had that kind of problem before. Then after 4 to 5 months, my monitor just has a black screen. It powers on, but still a black screen.

She/he may have shut off the monitor from the keyboard. look for a little picture of the monitor.

I fixed mine. Had to replace one bulging capacitor in the power supply. Yours may need more or less but it was pretty easy if you do any electronics. The specifics can be found under some of the other problem posts, especially for one of the 19" sceptres.
