My monitor won't turn on?

My 17" flat panel monitor died for no apparent reason. It won't turn on. I've tried plugging it into different outlets, but there is no sign of lights on the display or anything. It was originally plugged into my surge protector. Do you know what could be wrong with it??? Is it an electrical problem? What should I do?

I'd appreciate any help. Thanks. i have a dell monitor that just wont turn on. theres nothing wrong with the wires. there is just no sign of life. it has been like this since a power cut. could this be the problem and is there anyway to fix this?

If there is no power at all then it is either the power cable or the power supply board inside the monitor.

The part must be tested before replacement.

Mine did the same. Took it apart. Found three blow capacitors on the power supply board. Went to Radio Shak and bought 3 Capacitors (not the exact same ones 35V 1000 microF instead of the original 10V 1000 microF), installed them and now it works great.

How do i factory reset my NEC LCD1712 Monitor?

Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

hi if you have at least a basic knowledge in repairing in any electronics as my recommendations, since the problem is won't power on.first you need to open the back cover with the use of philip screw driver then start to check the power supply look for the blown fuse replaced with the same amper rated at the part. then check for any burnt or bulged capacitors. also considered the inverter ballast board if their is no burnt connectors or parts. good luck hope it will help you.

Monitor shuts off

Is the monitor light turning off, indicating the monitor is turning off? Or is the monitor/computer going to sleep?
How do you get the monitor to turn back on?
Verify the power cord is securely plugged into both the monitor and the outlet.
Try a different outlet.

I have a GEM 17" with power issues!

Sounds like your power supply capacitors are causing the power supply to shut down. Or you have a short in the monitor loading the power supply. You should try a different power supply.

Monitor setting panel on permenantly

mrjk65, If monitor still has bright, crisp images displayed on the LCD panel your monitor could be worth saving! Unplug unit from wall outlet and plug it back in! If same problem occurs then most likely problem could be a DC voltage is slightly "out of spec" or a settings panel push switch may have failed. My guess is that when STRANGE out of the BLUE things start to happen for no reason, I would suspect the "switch-mode-power-supply" to be the item at FAULT. Visit YOUTUBE for vids of "LCD monitor disassembly" , "LCD monitor repair" . You will be glad you did. Also try , , for more info. hope this helps. Bye for now. 12fixlouie.

No. Try a different power-cable. Try a different wall-outlet.
Is the monitor still under Dell's warranty?

My monitor won't turn on?

i had the same problem i bought two of those exact same monitors, and both died at the same time because the were in the same room, the temperture in the room was to hot and the monitors stayed on all day also very humid it was a small secluded room,the solution is a bit simple if you are up for the work. if your not tech savvy then maybe you can take to to someone and ask them to repair it for you the problem is that the capicitors on the powersupply board erupt bad capacitors due to the heat or most likely the humidity so all you need to do is replace the capcitors which cost about 55 cents you can buy it here the exact one would be the 470 uf 125v capacitors there are about 6 of them on the board and not all of them died for me i only had to replace 3 and you should be good to go. you can email me if your in NYC and you want someone to do it for you my fee is $100 for my time
