    It's not the pc, I tried connecting this monitor to another pc and it does the same exact thing. I connected power to the monitor (no vga cable) and I still got a flashing blue with a black screen.
    I also contected Samsung and they had me do the same thing that I tried and they said it needs repair. I feel that I'm going to have to rip it apart and check the caps.

    Thanks for your input damnor01.

    Indeed, it seems that the problem lies with the monitor!
    I'll leave it up to you!

    It is possible that it is the inverter that is faulty! Just like in the case of an LCD Screen in a laptop!

Any solutions to my notebook problems

The first thing to always try is resetting your PC. With a laptop, you must unplug it and remove the battery. While the laptop is unplugged and the battery removed, hold down the power button for a minimum of 30 seconds. This will reset the PC. Plug it back in and see if it works now. Always try to reset the PC first, for many different problems.

I can hear the sounds for start up but the light on the monitor is flashing. Have checked all wires, restarted pc and still just a black screen while the green light blinks. HELP :(

Try to shutdown the pc, then unplug the monitor from the power source, leave it unplugged for about 30 seconds, then plug it back, power it on and power on the pc.

If you can, try the monitor with another pc. If it works, it's a video card problem. If it doesn't work, it's the monitor proble. If you have another monitor, you can try it with you pc to solve every doubt, if it works then the monitor is dead.

My tv us fkashing blue light 3xs then resets no

I suspect that in this case your power board has a fault and will need technical intervention. NOT A DIY

But first try this, its a hard reset.

Turn unit off, unplug and leave overnight. Then re plug and turn on, if problem persists its a trip to the service shop.

Lcd sharp tv flashing green light

Try unplugging the unit and while unit is unplugged hold the volume up button and channel down buttons down and while depressing both buttons plug the unit in. Let go of the buttons and the unit should come on in the service mode. There will be a small k on the screen. With the sharp remote press the channel up button once. This should bring up a menu that will show a lamp error line. If the lamp error is = to 5 the unit is in lamp error shut down. User channel down to highlight that line and curser right arrow to highlight the lamp error #. Hit the enter button to clear the lamp errors. Now unplug the unit and let it sit for a minute and plug back in. I hope this corrects the problem. If the unit does not come on by doing this or if it does and you do not find lamp errors the power supply pcb may have been damaged by the surge.
