Hp w2408h monitor flashing red green black blue white

These blinks (flashes) are fault indication. By the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Count the blinks occur at one time switch ON, carefully. Do it once again, and make sure about the number of blinks. If the flashes are continious, non-stop, the main system control IC should be suspected. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has blinking codes detail to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy.

Most LCD monitor (depends on the brand) power indicator light will either turn from Green to Amber, or flashing Amber, or flashing green, when it does not detect video signal feeding it.

Monitor blinks constantly

If video flickers, I would open it up and check for broken capacitors on the power supply PCB.

Dell E173FP Screen blinking red, green, blue, white

The monitor is probably on protection.

To start unplug monitor from power and from computer and test computer with different monitor to find out if it is monitor or computer fault.

If it is computer fault and no video signal , then test:

  • Video cable.
  • Video adapter on PC (sometimes integrated on motherboard)
  • Motherboard.

If it is monitor fault , then the monitor is on protection.

When on protection you keep having a flashing led on front of the monitor , and monitor turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, faulty inverter board, faulty input board, or a fault on LCD Digital Controller board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

Try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

V7 blinks as it struggles

If you can hear a very high pitched whistle from the back of the monitor and it's randomly blinking chances are there is a bad capacitor in the monitor. These aren't very difficult to fix if you are skilled in electronics, if not however, then the monitor is going to cost too much to fix for it to be worth it.

LCD blinking on and off continually

If it flashes ON and OFF when simultaneously unplugged from both power and the computer then it's trying to communicate with you. Mine flashes code to me. It tells me what to do. Last night it told me to get it $5,000,000 in unmarked bills. Seriously, turn the monitor on without connecting it to a computer. If it flashes ON and OFF continously, then you have either a bad monitor or a bad AC/DC power adapter/brick (you know, the rectangular black corded adapter you plug into the wall outlet). If it only flashes ON and OFF when connected to a computer, try the monitor on another computer. If the monitor is 3-4 years old, it may be time to replace it since a replacement AC/DC adapter might be very hard to find. Let me know what you find out, if you need more help.
