After recently moving house I started to put PC back together, however I have noticed that when I power up a picture does not apeear to be coming through. Green light comes on and the screen goes grey. I press adjustment buttons at the side for resolution, brightness etc but cannot get anywhere when I press another function button I get an egg timer?? do I need to adjust something or re-install drivers???

Usually the pin looks like a lap top power adapter cord and the slots are on the back side it could be a standard power cord that looks like a computer cord as well. It is there check the sides out as well look all over it is there. Look between where the stands upper mount underneath that area.

Hi Gaz, First, verify the monitor is functional. Monitor STFC (Self Test Feature Check) Turn off the monitor Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket to remove any surge protectors or APCs from the troubleshooting equation Unplug the monitor video cable from the back of the computer Turn on the monitor The floating dialog box should appear on screen against a black background. If the issue appears during the STFC, the monitor is defective. What are the results please?
i just had this problem with my screen (proview pl716s) if you open the case and take out the power board, there are 6 470 uf capasitors bundled together and 1 220uf capasitor replace all 7 and that should fix your problem , that is what i did and it worked like a charm , oh and btw make sure before you swap your monitor from an older standard monitor to the lcd make sure the resolution is high enough becuase if it is not then the monitor will not be able to be displayd , hope that helps
This is most probably cause by one or more Faulty Electrolytic Capacitors, I find these are the MOST commonest form of "Fault" in these LCD's TFT's units. I ususally simply replace "On Spec" all High Value Electros, in fact ALL Electro's are suspect and often I just "Shotgun" and replace 'em all. Usually fixes all problems. Always use High Temperature Caps.
