It may have shorted out transistors (c5706/5707) in the inverter board so it is in shutdown/restsrt mode.
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.

Hi,

First make sure that all the cords are connected properly from the back of the CPU to your Monitor.I suggest you to unplug all the cords of the CPU and then plug them back in after 10min. and make sure they are all connected tightly.Next check if the power cord connected to the Monitor is attached tightly.

If you still face the problem then you will have to replace it with a new power cord whih connects the CPU to your Monitor.It is black in colour.

sounds like a power issue with the monitor. try to remove and reconnect its power cord. If same thing happens, try using a confirmed working power cord like the one you use with the computer and make sure you test it out using a confirmed working power outket. If it has the same issue, would mean you need to get a replacement monitor. Refer to the vendor if it is still in warranty.

Monitor black but power light blink green


The 470uF 25 Volts capacitors on the power supply board are probably bad. Replace them all and tell us the result !

When i push my power button on my flatscreen monitor, the power light will turn green then blink off for 2 secnds then blink on


Could you please explain more about your problem. Are you able to get your monitor working or is it that it keeps on blinking without any display on screen.

If your CPU is ON and then your facing no display on the monitor then the problem could not be with the monitor instead it could be either a loose RAM. Also check that the cables attached to the CPU is not loose.

AOC color monitor model 5En...during power on all led lights blinks then stops blinking without display action. all led lights on no more action observed.


actually if u repair an aoc monitor alone without getting connected to cpu once u switch on the monitor all led's will lit on ( green light ) it will remain on situation until u connect the vga connector to cpu that's the time led's will lit off and only the power led will remain in green condition.some aoc 5en once u power on power led is in green condition and if not connected to cpu it will be in orange condition.hope u get some idea but i am not sure if it will work with ur monitor. but as long as LEDs lit on i think no problem with ur monitor.

Monitor looks as if there is no CPU


If the power supply is coming to CPU before activation of CPU then it must be receiving current from UPS. Don't try unplugging, You may get shock. Thank you, Sir.

It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?

Green light continously blinking in samsung sync master 753s


1. cpu problem. why because of there is no signal output from cpu to monitor. the led blinking means there is no vertical, horizontal signals from cpu to monitor.

2. your monitor connected to another system.

3. neck board dry points.

4. cheak the display cable. 13&14 pins are horizontal, vertical signals.1, 2, 3 pins , R G B , 6 ,7, 8 pins R G B ground ( coaxiler cable used , meshed wire is ground )
