Very incomplete thread..i gotta know 1st what is ur system configuration..is all ur system is getting power on..is there any light on cabinet glowing (the power n hdd)..is there is power light coming on ur monitor..is there any sound coming out of the system..or the set is dead..??..

considering that the system gets on but u get no display and assuming that the bios has not been flashed in a wrong way & u r a professional..

however, before u proceed to complex checkups..check the mains power supply- the fuse/switch/wirings/power cords/other associate circuits..

probably itz either minor case of loose ram/improper ground/cmos battery..
or major case of faulty or defective smps/cpu/main board short/display adapter or card/monitor

..plz do check the following as in order:..

1) in power on mode, open/unplug the data/vga cable of the monitor from cabinet..see if raster or 'osd' is appearing on the monitor screen..if so monitor is ok..else replace the monitor and see..

2) if u hv a graphics card, replace with a standby or onboard and see..

3) see if the ram(s) is loose/faulty..open clean/remove carbon & or oxide formed on the teeth with an eraser n resit it..or replace with a standby n see..

4) unplug mains supply..pick open/remove the cmos battery..check (above +3v)..resit..

5) remove/clean dust neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause jam/short circuitry/excess resistace n many more..resulting an increase in heat..

6) open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the socket..put some "Heat Sink Compound" (available in local electronics chip level spare market) between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink *** fan..resit/fit it tightly in position..

7) the smps itself may b defective/faulty..check the outputs of smps viz. 0v (black~ground); +12v (yellow); +5v (red, green~ps-on, violet~pg & grey~sb); -12v (blue); -5v(white); +3.3v(orange)..
the 'oscillator and error amplifier ic', or pwm switching regulator circuit..look for defective protector-transformer/resistance(esp 4.7k)/mosfet..

8) if itz not the smps, then it must b ur main/mother board..see with a debug card for mb error..may b short..look for defective capacitors(esp above 1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's south bridge n the circuit lie around atx connector..the crystal clock generator (if cpu isn't heating up)....

always better to seek advise from ur system admin/vendor....

Hi,

First you have to check that the power is coming in the power board or not if power is coming then interchange the power cable of cpu as well as monitor.after changing the power cable if still not powering on then problem with internal component like that EHT . its better to call engineer for repair

SOURCE: My monitor is not receiveing any power. it was

You can try DIY repair, but you should read my guide and look at my albums first.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

You have PC problem nto monitor problem since you can see the mouse.
Try booting in safe mode (hit F8) while booting up then go to system restore and set it back to the date you remember before the problem started.
Did you installed any new software or updates before this problem started?

Colored vertical lines on monitor


Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

Monitor stuck on black, menu buttons not responding


It's sort of a solution, but I work in a computer shop and got this screen in yesterday. I looked at it closely and it's actually the backlight that died. I pulled it apart and found that three of the 820uF/20V capacitors had swollen up. If you replace them then you should be fine, but I went for a different approach and took the inverter board from a laptop and put the in the screen and used an external power supply. It's a bit dark but it works fine now.

Flashing green power light - Black screen


I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard
