Question about Compaq TFT5000 15" LCD Monitor
Screen is blank and power light only flashes briefly when power is turned off. Have tested power supply with multimeter and seems ok. Any thoughts on what the problem is?

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After it went dim and blank, you have to check if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.

It is broken. Replace it.
If you look online for a "previously-owned" 15-inch LCD monitor, expect to pay $20 to $30.
If you go to any "big-box" electronics store, you can buy a 19-inch LCD monitor for under $100.
Either way, it's much less expensive to REPLACE it
than it would be for a professional TV/video technician to try to trouble-shoot and REPAIR it.
