No its not the light bulb. It could be your buffer logic / scan boards. That is the 2 boards that are located on the leftside of the back of the tv. If you take the lower one off and turn the tv on you might get half a picture and if you do then that board is bad but if not do the samething but put the lower board back and take off the upper board and try the samething. Please leave a rating after you try this.

Check the circuit boards to see if any have failed. They are small cylindrical objects. If the tops of any of these are bulged instead of flat then they are bad and board will have to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Monitor appears to be in permanent standby mode - - black screen and blinking blue power light. It is a Gateway FPD2185W monitor. It will not turn off or on. Unplugging and re-plugging changes nothing. ...


Look for bad caps with bulging top in the power supply. I would replace all 10 with PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY. Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Apple Cinema HD Display 30'' black screen, power light blinking


I don't know what might have happened, but a number of years ago I had an apple monitor and the power light on it started blinking, so I got in touch with apple and they told me that it's flashing an error code, so they told me what the blinking indicated and fixed it.

So I think the blinking of the power light on your monitor could be indicating an error code so I suggest you call apple and they will identify what the error is indicating.

Blue spots on Sony High Definition 41 inch tv.


There are tiny screens at the top and bottom of the lightbulb (XL2200) that allow air for cooling over the lightbulb. It appears that if air flow is restricted the heat is not able to escape. The light source is in direct proximity to another mirror like device called the integrator lighting system polarization changer element. This may have gotten a little hotter than normal and is changing how the light is passing through to the tiny LCD's which make up the light engine. Creating the small areas of lavender light we are seeing.
I myself have replaced this bulb and now will check every months to vacuum the dirt off the tiny screens.
