Any time you have a orange light . The monitor or video card can be at fault. First check the monitor. Turn it on and see if it goes from green to amber. Check all monitor cable connections. to make sure the all 15 pins are there . If monitor displays a message that check video signal most likely video card is the problem. Make sure you have the cable connection plugged in the back of the computer into the video card. Usually a picture of a monitor. Then afterwards turn the monitor on first then the computer. If you do the other way around then the video card most likely will not engage.

The monitor light red light that comes on and off when you turn the tv on and off is flashing and the tv will not come on.

Just fix this 2 years old TV today due to bad cap in the 5v power supply, I would suggest you to take a look in the power supply module first.
See my pictures here:
This is really bad that expensive TV failed due to cheaply made caps. I would not recomend SAMSUNG any more to my firends after seeing this.
Please post back what you find, it can be problem some where else also.

Learn about bad caps:
Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps.
Or, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please post back what you find.
Please leave rating if it helps.

NO PC stated, NO OS STATED, must we guess it all?

the last running CRT monitor on earth fail 17 years old.
how amazing, no:?
lost the manual you did, google finds is if you had tried.
the OSD menu, works. push mon. menu button
turn off the sleep timer
RTM always works why not do that.

read the manual
your MON is so old its before modern VESA spec sleep modes were invented,
so it had this silly feature called the sleep timer, with clock
yes has a clock too, crazy no?

page 6pdf.
tells me it does have vesa mode, sleep off the sync pins
on the same page this old relic,has DDC modes
but only work on moden PC< DDC uses a pin that was never used before on the VGA jack.
that same page also states, DDC2Bi (plug and play) only works on MONItgor jack B..

so note tell me your PC or its video card model if used.
or whaT this is (windows95.)>?'
we cant help much can we.
but you can test your monitor on another PC.
if that fails, the monitor is bad
but you must try both MON, rear VGA ports.

if the PC was dead, i sure can be.
youd have tried another barrowed monitor to prove that.

When i turn my monitor on it shows no picture and it makes a sound like it is running the electricty went out and when it came back on thats when the trouble started thank you

It's time to spend $100 to buy a brand-new 19-inch LCD monitor,
or $200 to buy a brand-new 22-inch LCD monitor,
rather than paying a TV/CRT technician $50 to $75 per hour to try to fix the "antique" monitor.

Monitor moving on its own

On your physical monitor adjust the verticle and horizontal lengths to take up the full length of the screen. The CRT guns have to draw the exact location of your screen, so extending them to the edges will be easier on the guns. You can also try raising the refresh rate, although that probably wont fix it but it will help on your eyes. and if You have other options like convergence, focus, etc. Try messing with those.

Compaq P1220

If that monitor is out of warranty, it's pretty much a throw away item. If you can find a "donor" monitor with a cracked CRT or case, you could probably swap the high voltage units and get it going again.
