(Please be advise that if you don't have the knowledge, the proper skills and the right tools to open the back cover of your monitor and replace its part...don't risk it...
Otherwise, bring your unit to a credible technician and avail of warranty if there is any.....) If you have guts.. then do the following steps..

You said your monitor will blink but no picture display... well, there are possible reasons why this problem occur..

1. Open the back cover of your monitor..Check the power supply section for possible loose connections and blown capacitors.. Resolder any loose terminal connection on the pcb. Check for any blown capacitor, replace the capacitor with exact value, and also replace any bulging capacitor..If you have successfully replace the parts you can try to turn it on and connect the vga cable in it to the video card of your computer. Turn on also the cpu, if the monitor led turn green and the display came out..that fixed it.

2. In case you have successfully repaired the power supply section and the led of the monitor stays green.. then the problem will be in the inverter board section....Turn off your monitor... open the back cover...on the inverter board section.. check and replaced burnt or overheating high voltage transformer..if one or more of this overheats, it is enough to affect the supply current from the power supply section and that may cause to blow your capacitor...If the ballast transformer is working fine the last thing to check is the backlight inverter (the light that illuminate causing display in your monitor) Replace any busted lamp.. that should fix the black screen on your monitor. ..

If you find this information very useful..please be kind to rate this solution and vote for this on the help below...thanks..




Much appreciated if you rate this help...thanks...

Power light blinks red, green and off. No picture


Is there another monitor input on the back of you computer? Sometimes this happens when your graphics card is not compatible so it is best to try another one. If you have another one plug it in there first. If you don't try the monitor on a friends computer. If it still does the same thing, it may be a manufacturer defect and may need repair.

Mag Innovision 765S power supply light blinks and monitor power led blinks and no picture


I'd suggest looking at the mainboard. I assume the blink is rapid? A slow on, followed by a short off and back on again is normal. The fast blink thing is a mainboard issue, and the absence of blink (or light) is power "supply dead."

There is a problem transistor on the mainboard that seems to be the problem most of the time. Replacing it takes about 5 minutes if you have the tools and the talent, and the parts cost under 3 bucks at Radio Shack. Just pick up a pack of NPN switching transistors and de-solder / solder your way to a working monitor. There's usually only one on the board, so it's easy to spot.
