Definitely a problem with the monitor. If you can get the back open then look at the main board and the power board. You will want to look for puffy capacitors. Instead of a flat top it will look puffy like its pregnant.

If you find any like that then you need to replace them with new capacitors that have the same Uf rating and at least the same voltage or higher.

This will take some unsoldering and soldering skills. Make sure the stiped edge gets aligned with the striped edge on the board.

If you replaced them then the monitor should turn back on. If it doesn't then its a screen problem and you'll need to get a new monitor.

This is a problem with the power supply unit inside the monitor, there is no easy way out here. If you keep on using your monitor like this eventually it won't switch on no matter how long you wait. Keep on using it like this for the time being without switching off anything but ultimately you will have to take it in for repairs or otherwise purchase a new screen..

Green light blinking screen blank


Hi Suzee,

Is the green flashing on the tower or the monitor?

If it is flashing on the monitor, then it might be tht the monitor is not gettign signal from the tower.
To check, disconnect the monitor from the tower and check the monitor. If you get a msg on the screen like no input signal or check video cable, then 99% monitor is fine.

Check for the power supply light at the back of the tower.

Disconnect everything from the computer and then press and hold the power button on the comp for about 30 seconds.

Then connect the cables and check if it is working.
