Which model 900w or LE1936 ?
This info is usually on a sticker to the side of the stand.
If the 900w: You problem is probably that the capacitors on the power board have gone bad and need replacing. May also have transistor problems.
You would have to open it up to get a better idea.
I can probably tell from a picture.
If it is the LE1936: then it could be a similar capacitor problem, but it is rarer on this model than the 900w
Also on this model, there is a voltage regulator on the vga-dvi board that tends to go bad.

    THIS WAS EXACTLY THE PROBLEM! VISUAL INSPECTION INDICATED THAT THE 1000UF/10V CAP WAS EXPANDED ON THE END, WITH A SMALL DARK STAIN.

Power blue light flashing when i turn the computer on


It depends on where the blue light is. Is the blue light on the monitor or on the computer tower? If it is on the monitor the monitor is having problems and needs to be serviced. If it is on the tower it could be an issue with the power supply.

My FPD1976W start botton is blinking blue. Why?


It is either not getting the video signal from your PC, check all the pins at both ends of the VGA cable), or it is in shutdoen mode due to short circuits or failed power supply due to bad caps.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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 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.

Hp pavilion f1703 blue monitor power button flashesw/ dark screen


Have you tried connecting this monitor to another computer, even a laptop. This would tell you whether the display is bad or the video card is the culprit. I suspect the monitor's power supply is dying. Taking it to a pro for repair should cost @55.00. Buying a new monitor @ $100 - $125.

Dell flat panel monitor -power button blinks green to amber - no


One reason that this is happening could be that it is on Power saving mode. This happens when the LCD monitor detecs an incorrect timing then thats the time that the LCD goes blank and the power botton starts to blink.

what you need to do is to turn the computer off. Unplug cables attach to the LCD make sure it is also off, once done press the power botton for a couple of 30secs to a minute and then release. After doing so re-connect all the cables and make sure that both ends is tight and secure once everything is ok turn the computer on same with the monitor to check if it solves the problem.
