Please read my instruction and look at the pictures of failed DELL monitors.
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 DELL 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.

Flashing green light on the circuit board. No power at all


I suggest it is the mother board or the power supply. Go to the Dell website on a friend's PC and download PDF manuals pertaining to your model. The battery may have enough power to light an LED.

Samsung


Please try to connect your monitor to another PC, if still the problem exist, then probably an internal electronic part/s is cold soldered / defective, which I suggest to bring the unit to an authorized service center to fix the problem. regards

Flashing Power Light


When this occurs an inverter, backlight, vga connectiosn, etc could be the cause, my suggestion is connect it to some other device, if you get the same result then your monitor is bad!

Blank Screen..Will not power off


The flash light test only works with lcd monitor as they have back lights. Double check the connections again, also, if you can borrow a monitor try it on your pc, it may be your graphics driver needs to be uninstalled and re-installed, but you will need a monitor to see.
