Open the monitor, examine the circuit boards. Look for small components that look like small cans, these are capacitors. If you see any that look bulged on top, then your problem can probably be solved by replacing these. Check out the following sites;

Vsonic flat screen monitor need blink codes


hi do you mean you are asking for the blinking codes on your viewsonic pc monitor?. usually lcd monitor for pc has no blinking codes, if your monitor just only a blinking indicator and won't turn on, you must check first the source from your pc if their is a signal to turn on the monitor. if just blinking only then won't turn on you must check the power supply of the monitor usually the main cause is bulging capacitor. just replace it with the same value and rating thanks for consulting the fixya good luck.

Menu keep on blinking


Disconnect the monitor from the computer. Then turn on the monitor, if the menu keeps on blinking then that means the screen is starting to go bad and the monitor needs to be replaced.
You can also hook up the monitor to another computer. If the blinking stops then that means its an issue with the video card in your original computer.

Monitor won't come on. it blinks with a light and then goes off.


You have shorted transistors (c5707) in the inverter circuits, also need to check for poor solder joints and the tuning caps in the inverter transformers driving section.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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 DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

My Gateway monitor light blinks blue slowly but the screen is blank. I rebooted, and the computer came on, but the screen doesn't. We plugged in an old monitor, and it works. Does the slow-blinking blue...


More likely to be problem in the power supply.

My HP Monitor Model No: L1706 problem


I sure sounds like you have backlight problem, since when the VGA cable is connected the power LED turns GREEN and blinks when VGA cable is disconnected, it means the video signal is getting to the monitor OK, so more likely the problem will be in the monitor, but just to be sure, you should also try this monitor with another PC first.

Monitor is blinking.is this mean the lamp need replacement?


Not likely, more likely to be failed capacitors in the power supply, that is the first place to check, 90% of failed monitors are caused by bad caps: see example here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

The image is blinking.I can only see what's on the screen for a fraction of a second and then it blinks. The image is also very dull


Looks like a bad CCFL lamp, not a user replaceable part. You could have it checked by a local repair shop. If it's the lamp, the while LCD panel needs to be replaced.

Time for a new monitor?

My Neovo f-417 LCD Monitor is switching off after 3-4 seconds. Green lamp is still blinking but there is no ligts and picture on screen. Only black screen


This means there is a hardware failure in the monitor that could be either blown CAPs or a shorted out inverter. It is difficult and dangerous to replace both of those(involving soldering and desoldering) if you don't know how as LCD's are made of a hazardous material. I would try new cables and on a different computer as a last resort and if that doesnt work then your monitor is trashed. If it works on another computer then the issue is not with your monitor. Good luck!
