Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Medion TFT 15" LCD monitor (several years old) now just cycles when I try to turn it on (get green power light, screen comes on for an instant, then screen and green power light go off, and cycles like this about every second). It has an external power supply (AC to 12VDC 3.5A) which does read 12VDC on my voltmeter. I've tried connecting to different plugs and leaving it unplugged for awhile to no avail. I read online about a possible CCFD inverter problem causing similar symptoms. Any ideas?

    It may be helpful to others that the power supply problem was intermittent, too and the Medion PC is 5 years old. The intermittent PS problem finally got to clicking every time at home, but worked great the first time I took it to MicroCenter, only to not work as soon as I got it home again! Fortunately, it acted up the next time I took it to MicroCenter and we were able to diagnose it. Otherwise, I was about to do trial-n-error component replacement starting with the power supply (the MicroCenter guys said it was probably either the power supply or motherboard). With the case open the clicking had seemed to come from the vicinity of the PS fan and MB CPU fan, which were adjacent. I had expected either a burning smell or complete shutdown/blackout for a PS problem, not this clicking/blinking.

I ended up taking it to MicroCenter and their free Tech Support guy determined that the monitor was definitely bad (not the external AC adaptor). I was able to buy a relatively cheap replacement.
Incidentally, the monitor may have gone due to an electrical storm or when my PC's power supply went. At about the same time as this problem, the PC wouldn't power on... the power light would blink and I'd get clicking. The Tech Support guy checked the power supply output of one of my internal connectors and it was definitely bad. I replaced the 250W power supply with a Thermaltake 430W one (I wanted to add another drive and a couple more cards, so increasing the load) and voila "it lives again".

mcdevito75 here, The red power light usually means the monitor is off, if when you press the red button it turns to green, or blue then the red power button means the monitor was off. Your monitor could be burned out.

Fujitsu-Siemens P15 TFT power/picture problem. it take time to turn on.


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!

Problem with an NEC MultiSync 1550V 15" LCD


The power supply section may be failed, or there may be a short on one of the boards causing the monitor to cycle through the protect mode.

It might be the connection loose of power cord problem or check your TFT power connector inside the TFT if you can open the TFT screen!!! It may be dry solder….
Other wise go to repairer and do the same….!!!

Monitor Black, Green Power Light Flashes Monitor is 4 yrs. old


Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
