    if this were the case, then wouldn't there be a message on monitor screen saying "no video input?" screen remains black. why is the "on-off" button not responding to either power on or power off monitor?

    Our monitor (Proview PL716S) will not power up. Screen is completely black and there is no green light on next to power button. After rebooting several times with no success, we disconnected this monitor and replaced with an old Dell spare we had. The old monitor powered up and worked fine immediately. Any suggestions as to what might be wrong with the Proview monitor? I am not computer literate and appreciate any assistance you can give me.

    I have a Proview 780. When power is pluged in the green light is on , on the adapter. However the power light flickers on and off on the screen. The picture remains blank. I called Proview and a technician said that it was the adapter. I now have the computer hooked up to my tv and it's fine. Before I spend 50.00 for and adapter does this sound logical? Thanks, Dave

    I have the exact same problem- the monitor worked for me (and on my brothers computer who had it befor me on a diff computer) a but after a year the green light would flicker and was black but it would usually start on after a while and would work fine.

    Now however it almost never stayes on and the green light continues to flicker on and off and when i press the power botton it would not turn off and the green light would continue to flicker. The only way to turn int off is by onpluging it. When i plug it back in though it just starts the light just flickers again and the screen is black. If i wait a long while it sometimes turns on and off with a bunch of distorted lines and eventually focuses starts working fine untile i turn it off again, then the problem returns.

    if I kept the monitor on long enough the

    ONE day the monitor just went blank and wont work. All i get is a blinking light on the on/off switch. I sent my cpu back to Gateway to have the cpu fixed and they said it was the monitor. I found an old Dell monitor and hooked it up and it works fine.
    Seems to me maybe a fuse or something blew.

I just had this problem with my screen (proview pl716s) if you open the case and take out the power board, there are 6 470 uf capasitors bundled together and 1 220uf capasitor replace all 7 and that should fix your problem , that is what i did and it worked like a charm , oh and btw make sure before you swap your monitor from an older standard monitor to the lcd make sure the resolution is high enough becuase if it is not then the monitor will not be able to be displayd , hope that helps

This condition is caused by the monitor waiting for a video signal. Check your video settings on both the monitor and pc's video card and ensure all are set properly.

    Not necessarily. Not completely sure about your specific monitor but I have seen bad video comming from a card that would cause this situation. Depending on what resolution you have the monitor set to also determines the frequency at which it will read. Most monitors do this automatically. Again unsure of this brand so you might check your manual. If you dont have one, you can probably find one on the web at the mfg site. One question, is this plugged into the onboard video or does it have a seperate dedicated video card?

I know it's an older post, but you still may be waiting an answer:
What is probably happening is Your power board is failing to maintain power enough to run the bulbs and the rest.
That is why it takes long to start up and why it goes into sleep mode.
Does the power button stay lit (getting signal) or turn to amber (sleep mode) or does it flash.
