This monitor is not showing any images. However, the monitor is getting power. The power light is flashing which would normally indicate that the computer is sleeping however, this is not the case. I have checked all of the connections and switched monitors and even plugged this monitor into my laptop and nothing. Could this be a faulty monitor?
The issue here is most probably to do with your PC & not the monitor. You need to go into the display settings & check the multiple monitor support is on. I've just gotten one of these monitors & had the same problem. GKS

Try it on another PC fIrst. Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague http://www.badcaps.net
This type of issues is caused by parts called capacitors that have failed and are keeping the power supply from starting up correctly. You can rebuild the power supply board by replacing the bad capacitors and this will bring the monitor back to full working order. Here is a link to information showing what parts need to be replaced with pictures and parts list.
While the unit is attempting to "come ready", disconnect and reconnect the 7 wire blue plug. Some how or another, this disrupts the start up pattern that is failing, and the monitor comes on as normal when reconnected???
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!!!!!!
Most LCDs would work even in the absence of a specific driver. It would follow whatever settings you have set your computers displays to be (as long as within capacity). So as long as it works, you are good.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
The problem is the program for the graphics card is stored on a 16K serial eeprom which is used as a rom this can get corrupted which causes the problems you are experiancing.
I have repaired three of these monitors by re-flashing the eeprom with a program cloned from a working monitor all worked fine after refashing.
Now the bad news as the eeprom is used as a rom it is write protected on the board so the only way to program it is to remove it flash it with a valid program and then replace it easy if you are a surface mount expert.and have a serial eeprom programmer.
I used to repair a monitor from Dell. You might have to check what wrong with
your monitor when it went back 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
or any image, there will be a minor problem like broken lamps and it is very
easy to replace. But the most important part is you need to know how to
teardown the screen. . If you cannot see anything on the screen,
there'll be 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 burn 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.
this help you to examine your monitor. If there is anything I can
help you with, feel free to let me know.
