Sounds as though you have a backlight issue. How old is the monitor?
The keyhole with the lock sign is for a security lock to lock the monitor to a desk so it cannot be stolen.

My wife's mom bought us a desk top p.c with this samsung 906bw


Well, seems like the CPU is the source of the problems, not the LCD Monitor.

The simple way to check it is by remove the cable from CPU unit, see for any sign such us color pattern moving or any sign.

the other way is, try using other CPU or Laptop, then connect it to the LCD Monitor.If it works, then you need to repair your CPU.

Hope it's working

My hppavilion f1503 flat panel lcd monitor screen stay blank


The monitor should be plug and play, and you've already figured out that it's not your computer by plugging into a working monitor.

This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If the power light is blinking on-and-off, or just staying on with no image, that's the problem. There is a slight chance that it could be the light itself, but inverters fail more commonly.

If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old it is, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

LG L194WT Monitor suddenly stop working


it is probably indicative of a switched mode powersupply trying to start then seeing a short and then trying to start again...this will cycle continuously until fault is rectified..any component that can drain the powersupply is the culprit...you need some way of detaching the powersupply from the load (monitor) to see if the power supply its self is the cause and also check if there is a loop back (a pulse) for continuous running.

Flickering switch light, blank screen


Hi, First of all it is not advisable to open up monitors without proper tools as they contain hazardous elements. Dell monitors however do have a 3 year SEPARATE warranty. Check on the back of the monitor and look for the monitor serial number. is should start with CN-xxxxx-,, or JP-XXXXX-. give that to a dell tech and they should be able to replace that.
