    Just a question will a monitor's light come on just plugged into the electrical outlet without being hooked up to a pc or does it have to be installed to a pc to turn on?

It depends on the monitor, but usually a monitor's power light will come on if it is plugged into the mains. All the monitors I've used will power up to orange light with just the power supply, then once a signal is received from an active PC the light will change color to green.

All the monitors I've used can also be powered off and on with either a touch switch, toggle switch or push switch though, and if the switch is set wrongly then the power light may not come on.

Monitor won,t wake up from sleep mode


Open monitor and look at power supply board for capacitors which are "balooning" or deformed in any way. These look like cylindars on the board. These tend to dry out and make what you are describing occur. Replacing them usually fixes about 80% of the problem you are describing. Those parts run about $0.25 to $0.75 each.. well worth trying, right?

Was dusting monitor and computer area and now monitor won't come on. Have checked all connections.


I've experienced similar problems and the power button gets dust in it and it stops working. Try 'flicking' the power button to see if it clears it, that's what I do.
hold the power button firmly closed then suddenly release it - I use the edge of my nail to hold it closed.

Monitor won't go on


What to you mean by Monitor won't go on? Are you saying the power on the monitor will not turn on? Are you saying the Monitor is on, but there is nothing showing on the screen? Also it would help if we know what kind of computer and what operating system.

Vsonic flat screen monitor need blink codes


hi do you mean you are asking for the blinking codes on your viewsonic pc monitor?. usually lcd monitor for pc has no blinking codes, if your monitor just only a blinking indicator and won't turn on, you must check first the source from your pc if their is a signal to turn on the monitor. if just blinking only then won't turn on you must check the power supply of the monitor usually the main cause is bulging capacitor. just replace it with the same value and rating thanks for consulting the fixya good luck.

The adapter to my Western Digital Book does not respond


The monitor requires a adapter with a current output of 4 amps. but the Western Digital Book adapter can only supply 2 amps (half the current required by the monitor).
This means using the WD adapter on the monitor will stress this adapter beyond its capacity and continual use of this adapter on the monitor will cause it to fail and/or switch off if it has overload protection.
If you are having problems with the 2 amp adapter on the WD Book, then the power adapter could be faulty or it maybe OK when the adapter cools down.
I suggest you get a 12 volt 4 or more amps adapter for the monitor.
You may need an adapter for the WB book too if the adapter is faulty.
