The most probable cause is a break in the cable (red signal line). Try gently wiggling the cable at the computer connector and right at the monitor - these are the usual places for breaks. If this brings the red back into the picture (pun intended), you'll have to find a way to repair or replace the cable.

If you have red or white when the cable is disconnected (check cable warning message) or in the monitor adjustment menus, it is definitely either the cable or the computer video card.

If you can't get red to work at all with the tests in the preceding paragraphs, then it's time to open up the monitor. Check for continuity on the red line (pin 1 on the DB-15 connector to the red shielded wire where the cable terminates inside the monitor). Note: if you are not comfortable working near high voltage or don't know what not to touch, leave this task for an electronic technician. If the cable tests good, then it's time to troubleshoot the red cathode driver circuit on the CRT board, starting with the input signal. You'll probably need an oscilloscope for this job.

I am having sony dsc s 5000 cybershot camera. It is not used for some time. Batteries changed. But it is not switching on. Power greem light blinks and goes off.

what kind of battery you use ?, if you are using normal dry cell this happens, you have to use 2x Size-AA Alkaline or Ni-MH Batteries) which is recommended for this model, open the battery lid, check whether there is dirt or corrosion on the battery contacts, hope that this will solve your problem.

Gateway 825gm wont tun on. just replaced on/off switch. greem light on power supply and mother board blinking green

Make sure the small cable from the switch to the mother board hasn't come loose. It comes loose fairly easily when reinstalling the cooling fan plenum. Its happened to me twice. Its even possible to plug it in the wrong place. Doesn't hurt to double check.

Phillips TV- Plasma Model #42PF7220A/37

A tech will need to come out. When the tech do come out have him unplug the Y main and see if the led goes solid greem if it does have them replace the Ymain and the Y upper/lower boards. Most likely that will be the problem.
