Question about Computer Monitors
Hello, i have a proview 17in flat panel computer monitor model #700p that will not show anything, and the green power led indicator is on but flashing slowly. can you guys please help me. thanks
Usually when the power light flashes and the screen remains blank and unlit, your power board is in fact malfunctioning. This is not always the case, as the problem can sometimes reside in the input or inverter boards. I would first recommend that you feel comfortable with opening up your screen and looking at components. It can be a little overwhelming at first. BEFORE PROCEEDING, UNPLUG POWER TO MONITOR. If inclined to check, carefully open the casing around your screen. I have not worked on your particular model, but some are easier to open than others.
Once opened, you need to gain access to the circuit boards. Sometimes they are not protected by metal, other times they are completely encompassed. The flashing power light usually indicates that a capacitor(s) is(are) malfunctioning. To see if this is the issue, locate the power board (usually the one with larger-size components) and look for any capacitors having bubbled or raised tops and/or oozing a brownish liquid. If not on the power board, look elsewhere for the same symptom.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!! If you have recently had your monitor plugged in, the larger capacitors can still carry a charge. If you cross the leads of a capacitor while it carries a charge, it will discharge. It won't hurt any other components, but if you cross the leads with something that is in direct contact with yourself, you can get quite a jolt! There is usually a large voltage capacitor (normally just one) on the power board of these screens. I tested one with a multimeter after immediately unplugging it, and it still held a 166V charge! So please, do this with caution.
If a bad capacitor has been found, simply remove the old one and solder a new one in its place!

You need to replace the power supply! I work with these all of the time, the most common problem with thes montiors is the Power supplies do no generate enough charge to power it up to display an image! If the Power supply does not work I would look into getting a new monitor because then it is truly involved! Bad inverter, or blown LCD. I speculate that if your not getting any video after trying the new cord. replace the monitor! Sorry!

I have a similar problem.
Switching the screen off (front panel button) and on again after waiting a few seconds fixes it.
This is a recent problem, so I'm expecting it to get worse and worse until one day!!!!!!
