Try it with another PC to make sure it is not video card problem.
If it is monitor problem, you will have to take it apart.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

When I turn on my Cornea MP503 monitor on it has a message in a blue box saying Power Saving Mode and then goes blank and light flashes orange-green over and over.


Check the VGA/ DVI cable connection from your Monitor to PC, this also could be caused by VGA card on you PC that doesn't work properly, unfirmed connected to its slot etc, check also for unfirmed connected memory card/ RAM.

My monitor receives power, but doesn't receive signal from my computer. The green light blinks like there is something wrong and there is a faint beeping noise.


1st you separate you monitor from you Computer.
  • Now On your Monitor and check there is Faint beeping noise.
  • If there is no noise and after sometime the monitor light will change in orange colour.
  • It means there is no fault in monitor.
  • And also check Data cable of monitor is it right.
  • It means there is problem with you computer .
  • You Check the VGA Card.
  • I think there is problem with your VGA Card.

Nothing on screen, gren and orange light flashing


You more like have bad capacitors in the power supply. Open it up and look for capacitors with bulging tops. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

Screen Goes Blank


Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

My acer monitor's power light is blinking green then orange and will not work, what is the problem


Hi,
This could indicate that there is a problem with your display card and not your monitor. Try plugging you monitor into another pc and check for the same problem.
Best wishes,
