Re: No Power

Ok I got the same problem. And this is the way how to examine where the problem is. First try this monitor with another computer and power cord. If still the problem, you have to check that you can see the image on screen 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 (Power on both cpu and monitor), there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. If you cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are 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 dark 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 wont turn on.

If the power light does not come on and it makes a screeching noise, most likely its broken. I would contact the manufacturor, in case some warranty left.

The monitor does not power up. no power light comes on, there is nothing that shows up on the screen. All cables are well connected and yes the power switch is on.

check by changing the power cord if this does not solve the problem the fault is in the power of the monitor better call technician or take it to the service centre

When I plug in the power cord nothing happens. I press the power button and nothing seems to happen. I tried 3 different cords.

The power supply on lcd and other flat screen type monitors utilize a group of capacitors as a static pulse for the screen to bet is that one or more of those have's actually a common problem with flat screens. Most of them, those that won't power up anyways, have this exact same problem. If it's not that, then your power supply is burnt out, and if that's the case it may be cheaper to get a new monitor instead of trying to fix the old one.

I have a Samsung 240T monitor. It stopped working. I plug it in, it peeps and nothing happens. The power supply is working fine.

More likely to have failed capacitors in the power supply justother failed SAMSUNG monitors here:
Open it up and inspect the inside, post back what you see so we can guide you further.

I have had the Hyvision MV220 monitor for 2 years now. I powered it off last night and it will not power back on this morning. There's a clear dot on the power supply and I'm not sure if it should be lit...

The light should be lit on the power supply when its plugged into the wall. Sounds to me like the power supply might be bad. Plug it into another working outlet and if it still doesn't light up then the power supply is bad.

If it lights up then you know the outlet is bad.

Vg2230wm monitor Will not power on

probably your power supply. Is it a cord direct from plug in for is there a box between where you plug it in and then a small round end that goes into the monitor. This would be the good news. If it plugs in direct then that means the power sopply is in the monitor itself which means more expensive to fix

No power to moniter

This kind of problem needs an isolation. Please try the steps below:

1. Check the physical connection and make sure that the power cable is properly seated to the monitor.
2. Connect the monitor into different power outlet.
3. Try using different power cable.

Otherwise, you need to bring your monitor to the repair shop if none of the steps help.

Have a great day!
