Sounds like the power supply regulator is shorted or the high voltage protection circuirty is acitivated. If you know electonics you can identify the power regulator by a large heat sink. There may be more than one large heat sink. So get the numbers/letters off of the part and google it to determine if it is a regulator. With an ohm/volt meter you can check the regulator, it's output should be near approx. 130 volts ac. If the fuse is being burned open you need to locate the short. If you don't know electronics please save you own life and stay out of the monitor. The red lead that goes to the CRT can have as much as 30,000 volts and the CRT stays charged even when the power plug is removed.

Cant find power button

The monitor control buttons and placement of them which are located on the right side of the monitor with no physical pointers on the front to show what the buttons are. They are way too sensitive even air causing the menu to display on the screen

Moniter no display but power ok

as a computer technician by trade i will the obvious and move through to the complicated procedures and if after this you have no luck it is dead
first is there a video signal coming out of the computer
second is to video cable (vga) still good
third do you hear a crackle or obsesive humming while in operation(if yes disguard imediately)
lastly does the screen change shade when turned on (if yes you have a video problem)
and remember if it did not meet these criteria then disguard imediately as dead crt monitors can be very dangerous or harmfull should it blow out.

hope this helps and good luck

The montitor is plugged in but wont turn on

Press Fn F4
Some computers think they have a monitor already plugged in. Pressing Fn F4 changes the default monitor to the secondary monitor which you have plugged in.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

I turn on the actuall computer but it does not work i try the keyboard notheing it try the mouse notheing and the montitor does not turn on eithrer

Do any / all of the fans work??

If power supply fan doesn't work then most likely faulty power supply. (Try borrowing one to test)

If it still doesnt work then may be faulty mobo, CPU, ram stick.

If you have to purchase another power supply ensure its a higher wattage than the one fitted. Makes your PC a little faster!!

Even if i switch on my computer with moniter it doesnt show anything on moniter screen it remains black

Hello. With the computer and monitor OFF, disconnect the signal cable from the video card on your system. Next, turn on the monitor. There should be a bright green box with a pink outline of a video connector inside showing. If there isn't, and the monitor is definitely powered up, then there is an internal problem. If there IS a little green box, etc., the video card in your system is suspect.
  • 1) When turning on the monitor, do you hear the sound of the high voltage initiating?(i.e. you should hear some type of electronic noise like a vibration or crackling of static on the picture tube)
  • 2) If you do hear that high voltage kicking in, it may very well mean that the picture tube is dead and getting a replacement monitor is in your future.
  • 3) If you don't hear the high voltage, quite possibly the transformer that produces it(called a flyback transformer) is defective.
Due to the vast array of inexpensive monitors available, you probably should consider getting a new unit--the cost of a new display will rival the cost of the repair--and you get a fresh warranty to boot. If the picture tube is gone, there's no choice.---Rick
