These models are prone to shorting of the inverter drive transistors, 2sc5707. An in-circuit ohm meter test will reveal which are shorted if any. They should be replaced in pairs even if only one is shorted. Bad solder joints on the transformer can cause them to short so look for bad solder.

My computer turns on, the green light is on and the orange light is blinking but screen doesn't show anything


I may be in low-power mode. Try jiggling the mouse, pushing enter on the keyboard a couple times and just pushing the power button once.

If none of those work push and HOLD down the power button for about 10 seconds and the computer should shut off.

As an absolute last resort pull the power plug, leave it out a few seconds then plug it back in and power it on.

One of these methods should at least get the screen back up.

Monitor does awake from sleep mode


You need to check the inverter fuse, transistors, caps, solder joints. Please see my pictures here to get some ideas so you will know what to look for inside.

Black screen when the power is on.


Common failure in the Dell are shorted transistors or bad caps in the inverter ccircuits, bad solder joints, bad caps in power supply. I would try it on another PC first, if it still does not work, you will have to open it up. Please look through my pictures of failed Dell moniotrs to get some ideas.

The monitor will not turn on. When power button


First--was it working?
Did it suddenly stop?
When you see the LG logo, then it goes away, does the power light turn from green to amber? Sounds like that doesn't happen.
So--if you are getting a signal, you should see something.
If there is no signal, then the power light should change from green to orange.
With no lights at all, I suspect a faulty monitor.

Monitor flashes image for split second then goes blank but green LED flashes as well


while the monitor is still powered on, but with the LED flashing, unplug the monitor from the PC. press the power button, and the monitor should go off, now plug the pc back into the monitor. Turn the monitor back on and it should work.

Occasionally this will not work for me, but if I repeat it it normally works

Hope this helps - my problem is intermitant so it may be different to what u guys have
