Question about Acer AL1715 17 inch LCD Monitor
The flashing green light with no display is a good sign that the backlight power supply is failing. Since it comes back on after a while, seems to me to indicate that it's a part that is out of tolerance and as the power supply tries to recover, starts to work. Probally it a capacitor that is going bad. Don't think the move would cause a problem. You could fix it by replacing the capacitors for less than $20. There is seller on ebay that just sells replacement capacitors for LCD monitors if you want to fix yourself, otherwise spring for a new one.

More likely to have bad caps, look for caps with domed tops, replace them in a set.See my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/ACER%20AL1715b/ Basic LCD monitor and TV troubleshooting guide: Learn about bad caps: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague Capacitors kit: http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/ he can make you a set of caps for you.

Or www.digikey.com just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
