Tv monitor won't turn on

Hi, guys. i know very little techincal stuff, so please just answer in "english."

our flat screen tv monitor won't turn on. the little light that says whether it's on (green) or asleep (red) is out. a few months ago when this happened, my husband unplugged both the monitor and satellite, and replugged it, and it worked. this time, nothing. other things that are on the same power strip (satellite, sound system, and DVD/VCR) work just fine, but the monitor remains blank and dead. my husband is having serious withdrawals!

    green comes on for about five seconds, then it clicks off and the red
    light in the middle starts blinking. I hope someone has a suggestion.

My TV is turned on and I'm watching it but the status light on the bottom is flashing between blue and orange. Do you know why?

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

When the power is turned on, the screen stays black (nothing is displayed-totally dead). Then it won't turn back off unless I unplug it. The model is DX-LCD37. It doesn't matter if I use the pannel...

Had a very similar problem with mine - not sure if this will help or not, but it seems to be doing the trick (channels scanning as I type).
I unplugged the tv for about an hour. I unplugged the cable, and all the components. Then I turned the tv on, and was able to get to the menu screen. Previously, I couldn't change channels or even power off from the buttons on the side of the unit either...
Once there, I plugged the coaxial cable directly into the side of the set, then ran the auto-scan.
I know it's not a techincal answer, and a bit strange, but as I mentioned, it seems to be working for my issue.

Good luck!
