Blinking lights when PC is s.down

Hi, somebody help me! When my PC is turned on the monitor is working perfect, but when I turn off my PC (and the monitor stays plugged into electricity) the display starts blinking green - red - blue - yellow. I press the power button on the monitor but nothing changes, it is still playing these disco colours. Very thankful for any answers!

Not sure what happened as I had a whole message typed and lost it. Here I go again. I hope it doesn't post twice.

We have an Acer AL1715 monitor which started having this problem after a power surge. It was the only piece of equipment affected by the surge. I searched for an answer when it happened but got nowhere. I contacted Acer about this and they told me I would have to bring it to a tech to be looked at. Decided on a whim today to try Googling again and found this website and Q&As.

Though we didn't know what "Brunin" was nor saw an "F" change color, we did get into the Menu on the monitor and used the right and left arrows to see what was there. We decided to use "Reset" by highlighting it and pressing the "Menu" button for "Enter".

This appears to have solved the problem for us. The monitor is no longer toggling colored screens when idle nor when the computer is off.

Thank you for solving our problem. It has been very annoying for the user and anyone sitting across from her monitor during a meeting.

Enter the service menu by pressing "Menu", "left" (a F turns from black to red) und "menu"
Go with the rigth-button to "Brunin", hit "Menu", change value to "Off" by pressing left or right key, press "Menu" to save
go with left or right keys to "exit" and hit "menu" to leave the service menu, press "auto" to leave the OSM

LOL, it's a factory test pattern.
Something has happened to both your screens to set it to do that instead of going to sleep like good little monitors.
Normally the best way around it is to turn the screen off as soon as you tell Windows to shutdown.

This is normally a glitch in the bios, or it can happen if you accidently press a combination of buttons on the front control panel. That is how the service modes are accessed.

This is a problem with the CCFL bulb (the back light) or the inverter that powers it. This bulb is inside the lcd pannle and requires great care to replace. Some local PC Repair shops will be able to fix it however most will not. The inverter which is (most likely) the problem can be found on ebay for $20-30 USD and is easily replaceable it is general a small curcit board below the lcd pannle hidden in the bevel. However same times the board is merged into a much larger board which will be tricky to replace as it is specific to the monitor.

When i turn on my pc, the cpu works perfectly while the monitor "syncmaster591s"....when i turn on the monitor the light (green) beside the button of the monitor is blinking


Try a different monitor...if the different one won't come up then the prob is your video card in the computer...if it does work then the monitor is defective...it would probably be cheaper to get a new monitor than to have the syncmaster fixed

Lg monitor studioworks e 700, ligh is blinking


Hi,
The most likely cause of your problem is your display card and not the monitor. If the monitor led is blinking there is most likely no VGA signal being sent to the monitor. Plug your monitor into a PC that you know is working and check to see if it works through the other pc.
Let me know if this solves your problem.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Monitor : no display and blue led light is blinking


The power supply is the first thing that the 110v electric line goes into. The invertor is the next item past the power supply, or sometimes contained within it. I do not thing monitors are a DIY repair.      First substitute a different monitor to confirm that it is, in deed , the monitor and not the video card.
