    Nothing shows up on the screen, all the while the power button blinks about 2 times per second

    Other monitors have been successfully usable with the same video and power cable on the same computer.

Steve from Monitor Technology. You need to open the monitor and locate the inverter board.
Remove 3 screws,turn the board over and locate 2 caps,C110 and C111.Replace,820UF/35V
this will fix this problem.

Here is a link to a youtube video showing how to dis-assemble the Samsung 225BW monitor and replace the faulty capacitors on the power supply board. You will need to replace a total of 5 caps not just the two THEWIZGUY said. Without replacing all 5 you will have issues within a month or two and have to go back in and replace them.

Hp pavilion f1703 blue monitor power button flashesw/ dark screen

Have you tried connecting this monitor to another computer, even a laptop. This would tell you whether the display is bad or the video card is the culprit. I suspect the monitor's power supply is dying. Taking it to a pro for repair should cost @55.00. Buying a new monitor @ $100 - $125.
