    I have an old G4 (not eMac though) And I have had the same problem. I used the monitor and it worked 2 times and then I too got the blinking blue light only. When you first boot up the Mac the "analog" "digital" goes back and forth, but it does that with my laptop also. The monitor works fine with my laptop (digital) but not the desktop (analog). Anyway, after it did not come back on I tried unplugging the card and re-inserting it. Checked all the cables and such and came to the conclusion that my card went bad. So I replaced the card with the same on that was in there and again... it worked 2 times and now won't come on again!!! Help! The computer works great when you can see what your doing, but I can't keep replacing cards! It's a ATI rage 128 if that helps.

    what operating system are you running?

    do you have the drivers installed for it?

    did it work before and is not working now?

I found that the analog cable that came with the monitor was a cheap thin grade cable. My boss at work gave me an old thicker cable and when I hooked that up I have had no more problems. Get your self a better thicker cable.

And yes, it did work a couple of times before it went blank with both cards. I did not install a driver as this was a hand-me-down Mac and I just plugged the monitor in and it worked. It didn't think to install a driver since I had to have the monitor to see what I was doing and it worked.

I have a hp w2207 flat screen monitor. when turning power on, power blue light blinking and no picture. what can I check or look for to find and fix the problem?


That blue blinking light could be the fact that there is not a signal from the PC to the monitor itself. You could have lost your video card, corrupt driver for video card or monitor. If you have a PC with separate video card and a mother board video output, try switching to the one you are not using and rebooting the PC

Hp w2408h monitor flashing red green black blue white


These blinks (flashes) are fault indication. By the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Count the blinks occur at one time switch ON, carefully. Do it once again, and make sure about the number of blinks. If the flashes are continious, non-stop, the main system control IC should be suspected. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has blinking codes detail to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Hp vs 19 lcd monitor and it randomly just turns off and then flashes back on for 2-3 seconds then goes back off again


phantasighz, Did you swap out the monitor to get online? Or has the HP LCD mysteriously start working fine again? We need a littile more history here???? Once the LCD goes to BLACK, will it stay black, or will it all by it's self try to start up again, and then repeat the whole cycle again forever? Did you buy it new? How old is it? Have you talked to HP to see if they have swapout program? You send them your's+$40 to $90, and they send you same model refurbished(new CCFtubes/inverter/smps) installed. If you don't know by now, you are dealing with a lighting problem. Do you have any of the new energy saving curlie-Q screw-in compact-fluorescent light bulbs? Their high voltage source is derived alittle different than the way your monitor does it, and of course the Cold Cathode Fluorescent tubes are thinner and straight and hung horizontally on the opposite side of the LCD/FPD you look at. All you need to do to learn more about your problem and what hundreds of others are doing to repair their LCDs is GOOGLE search this: bad caps in lcd monitors. Hope this info helps you understand the technology better. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol.com

Same here- I understand that the capacitors are bad and need to be replaced. I am going to undertake it myself. Radio Shack sells them.

My vs17e hp the blue light blinks but moniutor will not come on


The quick way to determine if defective is to either substitute a monitor, or take that monitor to another computer. If the problem follows the monitor, then the monitor has an internal defect. if this is the case, electronic troubleshooting expertise is needed to repair.

A defective video card or chipset in the computer, or if the computer is dead- these would be typical problems if the problem is at the computer end of things.

Power Light Blinking & Black Screen


A blinking blue light indiactes that your power-inverter board is not putting out what it should. It needs an overhaul which may be a simple as changing out the capacitors on the boards.
It could go beyong that to transistors or even a bad bulb.
It will have to be opened up to do that.
A picture may show visual signs of damage. If you can take one and email it to me , I'll take a look.
