Monitor won't come on after unplugging for an electrical storm

Help! We had a storm last night and we shut down and unplugged the computers. Now the monitor won't come on. The green light comes on for awhile, but the screen is blank. Is there a reset button or something? This has happened before and my husband has messed around with it plugging and unplugging stuff until it comes on, but no luck today.

    I have no idea what either of those things are. I have tried plugging it into another computer and still have the problem. The first time this happened, I took it to Best Buy and they plugged it in and had no problem. This happens every time we unplug it. Is there a reset button? a fuse?

Is it plugged into an integrated soundcard on the motherboard or is it plugged into a Graphics card either a PCI or AGP? If it is integrated, you may want to look into a different video card for both better video quality and system performance. Let me know if this doesn't work.

After a storm the other night my Proview PL866s amber light is blinking - however when I press the amber button (which usually turns green and then it works) nothing is happening except blank screen and...

If this happened after a storm, the monitor may have been subjected to a power surge, which unfortunately might have killed it.

If you have another monitor (or a friend who has one) try plugging that other monitor into your computer. If the second monitor works, yours will need to be replaced as the input was probably destroyed by the power surge.

If the second monitor also doesn't work, there may be a problem with your computer, most likely with the power supply (this is the part most often damaged by a power surge). You may want to have it examined by a professional computer repair person at that point.

Hope this is helpful!

Not sure how much this will help you now, but unplugging your device is the only way to really protect it during a storm. Even turned off, your equipment is still subject to receive any electrical spikes that come through the lines

Mmmm not a good thing. Ive had this happen to me before. Knocked out my COMPUTER, MONITOR, AND TV! Well it could have shorted your monitor, you can get it fixed, but mind as well pay for a new one. As long as the one you have now is not really that expensive, but you could probably get it fixed for around 80$.. I wouldnt recommend it to be a "Do it yourself job" I would call some tv repair shops.

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.

I have LCD Benq 17" monitor that suddenly refuses to power up!

that shouldn't have messed up your monitor at all. It sound slike it needs to be reset. Unplug the monitor for at least 5 minutes. Then plug it in and power it back on.It may be stuck in a standby mode.

Blank screen

Similar monitor, similar problem. I actually had to dismantle the thing and replace a transistor on the mainboard.

If you're not into soldering and such, good luck.
