Question about Computers & Internet
Lower down the computer resolution and frequency rate from Video setting>>Advanced in control panel (personalize on Vista) replace the video cable.
If that does not help then the monitor is defective.
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.
