Re: No response from the monitor . Only the green light...

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Monitor problem

The power light is flashing green can indicate start/restart of the power supply due to shorts circuits or failing power supply due to bad caps, look for bad caps with bulging top first, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps:

Monitor displays for less than second, then goes black.

If that model has no external power supply then the supply is internal and some capacitors have failed. It's a fairly common problem with that type of monitor. The capacitors are cheap, and not too difficult to desolder and replace. The hardest part sometimes is getting the darned thing open.
Hope this helps.

This is also a test, I have been having issues getting notices of replies through e-mail. Your input therefore is desirable.

Thank you.

Monitor L17AMTN flashes WinXP desktop, then blanks.

dmellman, Before you open it up, try this! With fully booted pc and WIN DESKTOP screen up, reconnect the L17AMTN . Have a bright flashlight handy so that when the lcd screen flashes on for 1 second and then goes dark, you will want to check to see if the desktop remains on the screen even though you think it went away. Shine the light 1-2 inches from screen at different angles. Has the desk top completely disappeared or is it still being displayed? Do you know about Cold-Cathode-Fluorescent tubes and their Inverter type power supply? I assume that this unit also has a "lay on floor black box switch-mode-power-supply" that is supposed to supply raw 12v-14v dc to the monitor? This symptom is typical of lcd monitor power supply failure, and or inverter board failure. Not to mention the fact that the CCFT's could be a bit tired from use. YOUTUBE has some videos on taking apart lcd monitors. also do search on web for "bad caps on lcd boards" or "bad caps in lcd monitors". I should think that this Tatung might suffer from swollen cap-itis. get back to me with results of your investigation. Im louie12fix on fixya or just nrth of Windy City

Bad power supply. The light is green when it is not plugged into the monitor because there is no load on the power supply. When you plug it in the monitor tries to draw current, nothing the PSU can handle now, so the light blinks. The PSU can not provide the amps that the monitor needs.

Get a new power supply, you can find them on ebay. Just make sure the voltage and amps match. It is ok to buy a power supply with a higher amp rating, the monitor will only take what it needs. Also make sure the power plug that plugs into your monitor matches.
