Re: monitor light blinking

Some monitors blink 2 different collers and that means that their is no video signal and some monitors will blink real fast.This is caused by a power cap going bad.If this is happening you need to take appart the monitor and look for a power cap that has stuff leaking out of it or one that has a loose connection to the board or one that is bubeling on the top the power cap.The top of the power cap should be extremly flat.(here is the problem their could be a bad power cap and it might not be showing any signs of going bad).You will need to replace the cap.You can go to radio shack or fry's and they will usually have the parts for cheep.You will need to know the voltage and the pecofarrets.The voltage and the pecofarrets are usually listed on the cap.For example 350 voltage and Fu 4.5 (Fu standing for pecofarrets).You will need to remove the old power caps by applying heat with a soder gun to the under side of the board.Make sure you know which prong on the power cap is positive and which is negitive as the cap is polarity concious.(usually on the doard under the cap it will say + or -.The longest prong on the new cap will be positive).Once you have identified the bad cap or just replaced and removed them all you will need to use a soder gun and soder to atach the new power caps to the board.After sodering cut any acess langth of the prongs off and reasemble the monitor.Now hopfully the monitor works.

My monitor screen is black and the yellow standby light is blinking. I can not get the light to stop blinking or get the monitor to show anything, but a black screen. What can I do to coerrect the problem?

mcdevito75 here, Press the SHIFT key, a screen should come up telling you too click on your user name, left lower side of screen. If this doesn"t work, press the yellow blinking light on the monitor see if picture comes back, then follow the directions. If this doesn"t work, shut computer down with switch on the computer itself. Hope this helps.

My dell e173fp monitor has quit working. The power light continually blinks when power is applied, even without having to turn it on. An identical substitute monitor works fine on the computer system. ...

Is the power blinking amber? This is a DPMS power-save mode. With the computer disconnected and the monitor on, do you see the colored self-test block floating around? With the monitor on, computer connected, and you still have no image displayed, take a bright flashlight and examine the screen closely. If you can see a very dim display in the screen, the fluorescent tubes which light up the *background* and provide the vivid picture(sort of like a how an x-ray picture viewer works) are defective. The power light blinking may be the power supply sensing the non-functioning tubes or it could just be bad. If your display is under warranty, replace it. If not, trying to have the monitor repaired for this type of problem is almost as costly as a new one--and there won't be an active warranty on anything else that might fail. Hope I helped you.---Rick

It could be the Monitor, the VGA adapter, or the PC itself. If you power on the monitor without anything connected to it, do you ever see anything on the display?

If not, it is probably the Monitor. If yes, it is likely the vga adapter and/or PC.

Monitor : no display and blue led light is blinking

The power supply is the first thing that the 110v electric line goes into. The invertor is the next item past the power supply, or sometimes contained within it. I do not thing monitors are a DIY repair.      First substitute a different monitor to confirm that it is, in deed , the monitor and not the video card.

they normally turn off like this when they aren't receiving a video signal from the pc (same as when you turn off the pc). make sure that it is connected properly, and that the video output is activated. try disconnecting from the other monitor while its on and connect the problem monitor...if it still isn't working then there may be a problem with the cable or the monitor itself. Try another VGA or DVI cable. Hope this helps

HD19A / 19-Inch light flickers but no display

One of 2 possibilities come to mind. 


1,  The vga chord is loose on the back of the monitor.

2, Your resolution is set too high or low to be displayed.


The blinking light means that the monitor is either not getting or understanding a signal.


Hope this helps.
