Question about Fujitsu Siemens Premium Line P15-1 15" LCD Monitor
My monitor has recently developed a problem when being turned on.
The power light flashes orange in a steady rhythm (approx 1 second on, 1 second off, repeat) and no picture whatsoever appears.
The PC boots normally, I can "guesstimate" the user login location for WinXP on the welcome screen, and sometimes can hear the startup noise through the TFT speakers (very faintly as the light pulses on).
I have tried 2 AC Leads, 2 analogue cables and my DVI-D cable as alternate inputs, and the mainboard graphics too, but still no signal. The monitor usually puts up a grey box saying "No Signal - Entering Sleep Mode" when no signal is detected, but this has not appeared. A second monitor on the same graphics card, with the same cables shows a picture, as it does on the mainboard Graphics card.
Sometimes, I can jiggle the leads in their sockets, and eventually (after many hours) it appears to solve whatever the problem is (or just wishful thinking after hours of frustration), and return the picture.
Sometimes when this happens, it is a normal start/power-up sequence, but sometimes the screen is totally whited-out, and I have to cycle the power to get a "waxy", striped effect which disappears from top to bottom as the real picture appears.
Any help or ideas would be welcome, but for the meantime, I'm having to buy a new TFT tomorrow, as leaving this one on 24/7 to prevent the problems and frustration, is not really a long-term solution.

It does indeed sounds like the capacitors, I had this problem last year with a Medion monitor where it would turn on and off, when I spoke to Medion they did say that it would need a repair but at the time I wasn't enclined to pay the repair fees for something that may happen again!
Personally I would stick with your plan of getting a new monitor because my view on monitor hardware issues is that if it's happened once it will happen again even if you do repair it resulting in a lot of hassle!
