Does your computer appear to be booting?

Do you head any startup noises, or the startup sounds you hear when Windows loads?

In no, have your computer checked.

If yes, make sure your cables are all snug. Other than that, it depends on how into "fixing it yourself" you are.

Give this a try:

Open the unit and check to see if any of the capacitors in the power supply or other boards look domed or vented on the top.

Replace any capacitors accordingly. Use the same value capacitors. Most often, 1000uF 16V or 25V, 470uF at 16 or 25V, 220uF at 16V or 25V.

If this doesn’t solve the problem, try checking the surface-mount transistors on the inverter board that run the lights. Some times these transistors go bad. Check the area for any cracked or overheated ceramic or mylar capacitors.

You'll need a soldering iron, solder, solder ****** and some idea of how soldering and desoldering work.

Black screen

Does the monitor's menu work? To test this, just start punching button's on the front of the monitor, and if the OSC comes up, then you know that the monitor is probably not the problem. Does you monitor have more than one input? If so, try switching them to see if you computer is outputting them. Also, try the monitor with another computer. Once you've tried this, let me know, and I will give you more suggestions if it still doesn't work.

Benq FP71G+S NOt starting.

I have had this problem twice once at my school and once with my BenQ FP71G Monitor. At my school the monitor ( HP ) just stopped working and smelt like burnt popcorn.(though is think this is due to some kids chucking a soccer(football) ball at it! With my BenQ it has the same problem though i nownthink it is because of the monitor has been on for excessive hours ( 3-4 ) and just shut down because of overheating. I will see in a couple of hours if it works !
