    I unplugged it from the computer and it changed colors then plugged it
    back in and it went back to blinking green.Could it be a video card issue?

    My XG-71D also blinks on and off when I try to start up my computer. After about three reboots it finally starts to hold a picture longer then another one usually gets it to function properly. Worked fine until I upgraded from my Radeon 9600 SE to a GeForce 7600 GS. Using an 8800 GTS 512 now and it still does this. Possibly an issue with newer graphics cards? In any case I'm looking into a new monitor.

    This is the same defective monitor sold by I-Inc. Monitor dies 14 months after purchase. The button goes from yellow to blue but will not display screen. Price is cheap because only 1 yr warranty. $93.00 to fix.....

Viewsonic HAS to help you out if you are still under warranty.

Im through 2 of my 3 years, I will RMA this so they can fix it, replace it, or give me a new monitor.

Good Luck,

This problem is with the AC Adapter. You need to replace it.  Unfortunately, X2Gen is Bankrupt and finding one has been difficult.  I have 5 of these monitors in my office and switched out the AC Adapter and it works fine.  So, on goes my search for a different adapter.

I had exactly the same problem, I could see the desktop briefly then blackness. The solution to me was a different power supply. One similiar in voltage and amps and plug and it worked, the power supply was dead.

One of the inverter controlling transistors is failing. If you can see that it is burnt, you know which one, otherwise you should change both. Model # FDS8958A.

My Dell E173FP monitor will not come on. I have unplugged and replugged the cable from monitor to hard drive case as well as the a/c power cord. I have rebooted the computer several times and all I get on...

The dreaded blinking green led without a display, means that the backlight circuit has failed on this monitor. Typicalll the transistors that drive the backlight transformers short out and fail. I have fixed this on my monitors twice. Very common failure for this monitor and can be fixed quite easy if you know how to use a soldering iron and a meter. They even sell a repair kit on ebay that provides parts to repair this monitor. Just go to ebay and search e17fpb repair and to find it. Hope this helps.

AOC color monitor model 5En...during power on all led lights blinks then stops blinking without display action. all led lights on no more action observed.

actually if u repair an aoc monitor alone without getting connected to cpu once u switch on the monitor all led's will lit on ( green light ) it will remain on situation until u connect the vga connector to cpu that's the time led's will lit off and only the power led will remain in green condition.some aoc 5en once u power on power led is in green condition and if not connected to cpu it will be in orange condition.hope u get some idea but i am not sure if it will work with ur monitor. but as long as LEDs lit on i think no problem with ur monitor.

Samsung Syncmaster 710n no display and no LED light

The power button should be on the FRONT BOTTOM RIGHT. and there should be a little led/light next to it. make sure everything is plugged in correctly and press the power button, the led should light up, and then boot your computer.

Let me know --

You've got a busted backlight inverter... Need to replaced a new one...

Dec 17, 2008 | Acer AL1716Bbd 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor is busted!

If your pc works on another monitor. I would recommend you buy a new LCD monitor or a used CRT.

The best solution if your computer works is to buy a LCD screen, I've thrown out my 17" crt screens they aren't worth anything these days. You can get a used crt from ebay

Over here where I live I bought a used crt for 25usd thats was over a year ago.

Theres really no point in trying to repair the screen if its broken, buy a working one or a brand new lcd.

Good luck.

Monitors video and power blinks on and off

Yet another case of bad capacitors on the power board.
These monitors are well known for this issue, but they live a long time past when they should.
Easy repair, but if your not confident around electronics drop it to your local TV repair shop.

Hope it helps =)
