Screen won't turn on


You can try to do the monitor self test.
Monitor Self Test:
1. Physically test the monitor autonomously from the computer.2. Switch both the monitor and the computer off, and then disconnect the VGA cable le from the computer.3. Turn the monitor on, pressing the power button for about three seconds. The self-test screen will come up .4. If the image is clear, bright, and shows red, green, and blue, the monitor is working properly. Video issues may be due to the video resolution in the computer, and not the monitor.5. If the image is not apparent and intense or the colors are not accurate, then the trouble is with the monitor or some of the (OSD) settings. In this case, test your particular monitor's information for OSD.
It is always important to check the color of your power light for so you can distinguish if the monitor is defective. Getting red lights on the the power panel states that the power section of the monitor is faulty.

The monitor will not show a picture the led is flashing green


* If the issue is visible in the monitor STFC (Self-Test Feature Check), the monitor is defective. * If not, the issue is with either the video card driver or the video card.
* Turn off both your PC and monitor * Disconnect the monitor from the PC (either the white DVI or the blue VGA. They should never be connected at the same time to one PC) * Turn the monitor on * The floating Dell red/green/blue/white dialog box should appear on a black background * Check for the issue

My monitor is not responding. I have a blank screen and my power led is flashing green, none of the front monitor buttons are responding, not even to turn of power. Cannot access menu as I have blank,...


Hi Cat, You can try removing the data cable of your monitor, the one connecting to the back of the tower/computer. If there are no issues on the monitor, normally you will be getting the power self test which is indicated by three vertical colors on the screen (Red, BLue, Green). If you dont see the power self test, it may be a problem with the monitor. YOu may want to try using a different monitor to isolate issue if available

Flashing colors


it's in a self Diagnostic test mode.
check to see if the colors are moving in a square arond the monitor and if there is any writing on the screen.
Make sure the wire from the monitor to the computer are plugged in properly- Reseat them. Take them out and place them gently back in. The wires should be snug not tight. they should not fall out by themselves.
check to see if you have a secondary video output from your monitor and if so attempt that connection as well. The computer will normally self recognize an output and a modern monitor will under normal circumstances project an input.

I have a dell Dimension 2300 and the images are very dark. I don't think it is from the monitor.


Try these steps: 1. Check the monitor settings. Access the On Screen Display (OSD) Menu System. Adjust the contrast and brightness using the control buttons in the monitor.
2. Run the monitor self test. Unplug the video cable from the computer (cable from monitor to the back of the computer). Usually it has a blue or white connector. Turn on the monitor alone. It should display the self test pattern (white, red, green & blue). If the images are dark in the self test, it is a problem with the monitor.
2. Rotate the monitor to face a different direction. This will help in eliminating sunlight glare which can cause poor picture quality.
3. Test your computer using another working monitor. If the problem occurs in a known good monitor, then it is a video card or motherboard (if your video card is integrated) problem.
I hope these options help.

Computer powers up, but monitor shows a self test


Your video output is bad. Either the video card, or the onboard video built into the computer. You need to swap out the card or add a card to bypass the built in video port on your computer.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Monitor not working


These messages appear during if the video cable becomes disconnected or
damaged.(most likely you will need to replace it)
Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the
monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after using the previous procedure, check your video
controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly

Hi, The part where you see some color bars and blinking green led is what we call MONITOR SELF TEST. A diagnostic pattern consisting of four colors (red, green, blue and white) appears, and the LED flashes slowly. this happens when signal cable from the monitor is disconnected from the tower and leaving the power chord for the monitor plugged in. If the monitor works properly on a different computer. then its a problem with the computer's video card sending out signal. im 85% sure that its a problem with your video card.
