Troubleshoot a little further to make sure it is the monitor and not the video graphics card on your computer.

Do you have another computer or laptop that you can attach the monitor to and see if it comes on? If so, attach the monitor and see if it works.

If the monitor does work, then your video graphics card on your computer is out. You can purchase a new one for under 30 dollars (a better one will cost you more). These are easy to install just make sure you are grounded before opening the case and that the computer is unplugged before starting.

The monitor doesn't have a fuse (that I know of) but does have a backlight (like a long lamp). If this went out then you would need to turn off the lights, plug into computer and shine a bright light on it. If you can barely see a picture then the backlight is out. These are difficult to replace but worth taking to a tech.

I am 98% positive it is the video graphics card.

Hope this helps!

We had a power outage at my shop and now my Dell e171fp monitor will not power up. No light near on button and monitor is black. Switched to known good pwr cable and monitor still blank.

This generally is not good news, when the power comes back on it peaks causing the damage in it's wake. The power supply has been compromised and if you are very lucky you might get away with a fuse change. The monitor will need to be dis-assembled to assess the situation and hopefully it will start back up with minimal repairs. The fuse should be located near the power cord going into the circuit board.

Crt Monitor Macer Model C708 as soon as i connect the power cable there is no power, no display

Have you checked that power is reaching your PC? First, check your power socket by plugging something else in. Next, you need to check the monitor's power line.If it has a fuse in its plug, check that by substitution if you don't have a test meter.It is very unusual for the power lead itself to get a fault because monitor power leads are heavy and of good quality.
It is possible that an internal fuse has blown, but if it has, there must be a cause. I would not advise you to even check that due to very high internal voltages even when power is off. Unforunately, CRT monitors are worth so ilttle these days that they are not worth repairing. Your best bet is to find a used monitor locally, which should not cost you much because they can hardly be given away these days.Look in your local papers.

How do you restart a nec lcd monitor, had power surge everything but monitor gets power?

The power surge probably blew the fuse inside the tv, first check the fuse inside the mains plug, if that is good then you will have to take the back cover off the tv, you are looking for the power board follow the mains cable into the tv and you will find it. Look for a fuse on the board, pop it out of the fuse holder, if you have or can get hold of a multimetre check the fuse for continuity if it hasnt you will have get hold off another fuse, you can normally get them from your local electrical repair shop, they dont cost much and the liklyhood is they will probably give you one free of charge.

Monitor (viewsonic VP191b)is completely Dead. Is there a fuse?

There may be one, but it wont look like a normal fuse. It could be a surface mount type or one that looks like a resistor.

If I had your monitor on my bench, I would first replace all of the electrolytic caps on the circuit boards. These are typical fail points.

Hp 1703 Video for 1second then Black Please Help if you replace the main boards ( Power & Video Or just the Power Board) will this fix the display issue. thanks

You may want to check your power and connection cables are not showing bare wire, which is the metal hanging out of the rubber insulation cord. So just check for that and if not that I would call HP.

Does not power on

Hi Mia,

Hope this tips can help figure out the problem; If AC mains or AVR is good, review checking the power cable connecting from AC mains/AVR best fittingly. Or try connecting the monitor on different outlet. Just be careful in handling connecting end to AC source always. Try another cable if you have extra one. If the problem persist there might be internal problem on your monitor. Busted fuse or cold solders before you transport causes the problem. You'll need technical guy to check internal of the monitors due to high risk of Voltage Shock. Please be guided.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano
