This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's most likely the problem. You can confirm that it's actually the monitor and not your computer or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try. If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old your monitor is, and how much you've invested into it, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

Monitor will not stay powered up


It is possible that the monitor is going back into "Sleep mode" meaning it is not detecting a valid signal from whatever device it is plugged into. I would try replacing the cable that is connecting the monitor to the PC or Console. As a trouble shooting step try pulling up the "Menu" on the monitor itself by pressing the "Menu" button on the front panel of the monitor, if this does come up then we can say that the LCD itself is most likely working.

Acer monitor will not start, power button flashes


hi Samuel.
this is all i could find from the internet.
You can try a power reset to see if that helps. To do a power reset, unplug the power cable and press and hold the power key for 10 seconds. Then, release the power key and plug the monitor in and attempt to use it. If you are still unable to get a proper display, We would suggest contacting technical support to inquire about warranty repair options. Many of our monitors carry a 3 year warranty, so there is a chance you may still have warranty left.

HP L2208W monitor. Unplugged it, working perfectly, moved it (carefully) to another desk, now it only says "no input signal", but stranger is the fact that it comes on as soon as it is plugged...


nosignal means the PC its plugged into , is not sending
the 2 sync, signals, horiz./vertical.
so make sure the PC works,first, then the cable them the monitor.
this monitor is old as 2007. 1 decade old.
is the cable plugged in to the same jacks as it was.
the PC caN in fact have many jacks, DVI or VGA. even 3:
the monitor can have 2 jacks use the primary. yours has 2.
one DVI and 1 VGA.

self power on feature...hummm, the opposite of any energy saver scheme...
is the bottom right monitor button power damaged? look carefully.
to reset the monitor, unplug monitor from wall power AC
then hold the power button for 10 seconds.
release.
does it work now?
the odd self power on the power lamp shows? page23 your manual.
Green = Fully powered.
Amber = Sleep mode.
Flashing Amber = Sleep Timer mode.

ok page 26 in your manual shows there is an auto power on feature, I just read it for you. in your OSD menu.

"Power On Recall
Restores power to the monitor following an
unexpected removal of power. Select:
?
On
?
Off <**************************
The factory default is On."


NOT FRIED, at all I bet.
1: wrong cables used or plugged in wrong
2: PC died. in the move, sure can, test PC with another monitor
if fails PC is failed, if not , not.
3: wrong jacks used.
4: cable died.

Lcd monitor power light flashing with no img. seems 2 be frozen


The display is in safe mode and you will need to reset the display to get the display out of the safe mode. There are 2 different model revisions. Please choose the method that will match your revision. Depending on the revision of the monitor, one of the following 2 methods should reset it to a normal state. This reset generally requires both hands and it is sometimes easier with another person.

If the serial number begins with an A and/or your power button on the far right (5th button from left):
Method #1
1. Unplug the VGA cable.
2. Remove the power cable from the back of the monitor.
3. Counting the buttons on the front of the panel from left to right as 1 – 5, hold the buttons 2 and 3 down at the same time (see picture above) and while continuing to hold the buttons, plug the power cable back in.
4. Keep holding the buttons for 5 seconds after the power has been plugged in and then let go. The green light should be steady when you release the buttons.
5. If the procedure worked, the green light will go to amber and you should see a "No Signal" message on the screen for a few seconds.
Method #2
1. Unplug the VGA cable.
2. Remove the power cable from the back of the monitor.
3. Counting the buttons on the front of the panel from left to right as 1 – 5, hold the buttons 2 and 3 down at the same time (see picture above) and while continuing to hold the buttons, plug the power cable back in.
4. Keep holding the buttons until the 4th green LED blink; then, let go. The green light should be steady when you release the buttons.
5. If the procedure worked, the green light will go to amber and you should see a "No Signal" message on the screen for a few seconds.


If the serial number begins with a B and/or your power button is in the middle (3rd button from left):
Method #1
1. Unplug the VGA cable.
2. Remove the power cable from the back of the monitor.
3. Counting the buttons on the front of the panel from left to right as 1 – 5, hold the buttons 2 and 4 down at the same time (see attached picture) and while continuing to hold the buttons, plug the power cable back in.4. Keep holding the buttons for 5 seconds after the power has been plugged in and then let go. The green light should be steady when you release the buttons.
5. If the procedure worked, the green light will go to amber and you should see a "No Signal" message on the screen for a few seconds.

Method #2
1. Unplug the VGA cable.
2. Remove the power cable from the back of the monitor.
3. Counting the buttons on the front of the panel from left to right as 1 – 5, hold the buttons 2 and 4 down at the same time (see picture above) and while continuing to hold the buttons, plug the power cable back in.
4. Keep holding the buttons until the 4th green LED blink; then, let go. The green light should be steady when you release the buttons.
5. If the procedure worked, the green light will go to amber and you should see a "No Signal" message on the screen for a few seconds.

If you have tried the reset a few times and it does not solve your issue, please Ask a Question to submit a request through the system or call 1-866-752-6271 Option 1 to contact technical support.
