Blinking green power on

I have tried hooking it up to another CPU at school and it just flickers a little and the green light blinks slowly. Things I can try?

    Monitor went black while system was running - now the power button goes on and off sporadically and faint flashing - no visuals though - even when i turn off system - still flashes. Tried shutting down, unplugging- replugging etc to no avail- cannot access cd info becasue no visual on monitor

    Seems to be very common, especially with this monitor. It probably is a blown capacitor. Hey it's broke anyway, and I have already bought another, so I may try my hand at fixing it. I fixed an MP3 player that no one thought I could. : )

    I have the same problem, is there a way of fixing it myself? Plus which parts are needed?

This is called a "power blink" and is associated only with the monitor, very common problem--blown capacitor or transformer.

Run a search online, if you are an electrically incilned person u can get it fixed easily. If not, get it repaired cheap. dont get ripped off

1. remove your RAM and clean it and re fix it on motherboard if its just that problem it may come up.

2. try other RAM from any working PC to ensure your RAM is serviceable.

    dear Mr Guest...

    i guess u should register urself here and start giving solutions also because what i thing you are quite a knowledgable person...dear what i told is the criteria when you want to check the monitor attached with a PC and the symptom is what he explained earlier..anyway what you will do without attaching a monitor to CPU? huh?



    any way here is the solution to your problem...

    just try out your PC with a PCI VGA card because what i could make out from very less hints is that your Onboard VGA has gone unserviceable...enjoy...

When i push my power button on my flatscreen monitor, the power light will turn green then blink off for 2 secnds then blink on


Could you please explain more about your problem. Are you able to get your monitor working or is it that it keeps on blinking without any display on screen.

If your CPU is ON and then your facing no display on the monitor then the problem could not be with the monitor instead it could be either a loose RAM. Also check that the cables attached to the CPU is not loose.

Hp l1906 LCD MONITOR SCREEN WONT DISPLAY. power lcd green light keep blinking. Any solution? thx


It is possible that the video card in cpu is bad, try hooking up another monitor to the cpu (computer) if you have one that will let you know if it is the monitor or the computer video card, Could be as simple as the driver is missing.

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.

AOC color monitor model 5En...during power on all led lights blinks then stops blinking without display action. all led lights on no more action observed.


actually if u repair an aoc monitor alone without getting connected to cpu once u switch on the monitor all led's will lit on ( green light ) it will remain on situation until u connect the vga connector to cpu that's the time led's will lit off and only the power led will remain in green condition.some aoc 5en once u power on power led is in green condition and if not connected to cpu it will be in orange condition.hope u get some idea but i am not sure if it will work with ur monitor. but as long as LEDs lit on i think no problem with ur monitor.

Monitor looks as if there is no CPU


If the power supply is coming to CPU before activation of CPU then it must be receiving current from UPS. Don't try unplugging, You may get shock. Thank you, Sir.

Green light continously blinking in samsung sync master 753s


1. cpu problem. why because of there is no signal output from cpu to monitor. the led blinking means there is no vertical, horizontal signals from cpu to monitor.

2. your monitor connected to another system.

3. neck board dry points.

4. cheak the display cable. 13&14 pins are horizontal, vertical signals.1, 2, 3 pins , R G B , 6 ,7, 8 pins R G B ground ( coaxiler cable used , meshed wire is ground )

AOC lm720 no screen plus blinking green light


Sorry to say, but it sounds like you power board is due for an overhaul.
It should be fixable since it does show signs of a little life left in it.
It would have to be taken apart. A visual may tell for sure.
Look for bulging capacitors (canister looking things) This a sign of a typical failure.
Of course, not all capacitors bulge when they go bad. That would make things too simple !!
