This monitor has known problem with shorted out transistors (c3706/3707) in the inverter circuits. Also look out for bad capacitors.

Emachine laptop E527 won't switch on power button solid blue with black screen


Michelle, try plugging in a monitor to the back of the laptop. In some cases you'll find that the the laptop screen is gone and it's your choice to look to repair it OR be satisfied to use the laptop like a desktop (use external monitor, keyboard, & mouse).

No desktop black screen


If you have a monitor for a desktop connect the laptop to it and use the correct function button to change to an external monitor if is shows you more than likely have a bad back light or screen. If it doesn't show on the external then you can figure your video adapter has gone bad. I have had a lot of HP laptops come thru my shop where they power on but only have a black screen. It is caused by the solider breaking down and the connections coming lose. The only thing you can do at this point is run the check I have told you about and then find somebody to rework the solider on the board.
Hopes this helps.

You can verify that it is the inverter going out by turning the monitor on in a dark room and shining a light directly into the screen. If you cannot see anything, then something has happened to the power circuit. Perhaps the solder on the power port has gone bad, and needs to be redone, or part of the circuit board fried. The only way to figure this out is to open it up and take a look-see. If you don't wish to try this, you can always take it to a shop and have them look at it. Be careful opening it, the inverter is high voltage. Don't have any power going to the monitor if you do this.

My dell monitor turns on for 2 seconds then goes black and the green light blinks orange


I assume that you already try this monitor on another PC to verify that the problem is in the monitor, in this case you need to open it up and inspect the fuse, transitors, solder connections on the power/inverter board, see failed Dell monitors here for guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further.

Blacked out screen


Hi,

If the power light is blinking amber – The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.

Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location (if applicable).

Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board (see page 73).

flip off the surge protector and then flip it back on.

Screen stays either black or white


Replace the entire DAC board (board with power suplly going into it) for easiest solution.
