Unplug everything from the monitor, than push the on button for 30 seconds. Plug everything back in, and that should power it back up. I had the same problem, and apparently there was a build up of static electricity in my screen. Fixed it right away.

You can open it up and inspect the caps in the power supply first, if they look OK then you need to check to see if you do have 24vdc feeding the backlight inverter board, it can be that you have blown fuse on the inverter board.
You can read more about other people that try to repair it, http://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?p=45010

My monitor FPD2485W is unresponsive. It won't start.


This monitor is released in 2007, more likely to have failed components by now.
Most common failure 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 goes wrong: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further.

I have a KRK Rokit Powered 5 studio monitor and the fuse blew out, so i replace the fuse with the spare they provide and ''bam'' blows again as soon as i turn on the monitor. i have had these for about 4...


Look for a failure in the power supply section. You will need electronic experience or someone who has that.

If the fuse is glass and blows silvery inside thia means a direct short inside. SUSPECT the input rectifier or filter capacitor(s).

Do testing with a 100 watt light bulb in series with the hot side of the power cord to avoid blowing fuses.

About a problem in my viewsonic monitor


Hi

Actually the common problem of viewsonic LCD monitor is bad electrolytic capacitor at primary, secondary & inverter area, if your lcd using power adaptor test the voltage out, use analog or digital tester range 50v dc, if the voltage out is accurate dont be sure to your adaptor working good, open it and find bad electrolytic capacitor inside. That is common problem of viewsonic LCD monitor could cause of display flashing then back to black after few seconds. Suspect inverter area lastly mainboard.

Gud Luck!

Monitor went black


Same with mine a couple days ago. I've been told the contacts have oxidized and need to be cleaned. It was going to cost about $80 to fix and no guarantee how long it would last so I just bought a new monitor.

Dell computer screen black out


Try replacing a couple of the surface mount capacitors. Start with the 10uf's C604 and C507 this will usually bring them back to life.
Good Luck!
