WHY IS THE GREEEN POWER BUTTON FLASHING ON MY MONITER AND THE SCREEN THEN GOWS BLACK

When the power light is flashing the monitor is not getting a stable signal. This is hard to answer without direct troubleshooting. Check the cables first, make sure they are connected securely. If you still have problems test another monitor you know works or move monitor to a computer you know works, this will determine if the monitor is the problem or not and tell you if it is your "graphics port or adapter". If another monitor works fine, use the working cables to test the "broken" monitor. If you have an "all-in-one" computer, ignore the above steps and use a start-up repair disk. The reason this is hard to troubleshoot is there are so many things to diagnose. More than likely your "graphics card" is failing. These are some tricks to repair. You can update the driver, buy a graphic card separate from the stock port.

Monitor won't stay illuminated for more than 2

Check for bad capacitors in the power supply section, also check for shorted out transistors (4) C5706/5707 in the inverter circuits.

How to get rid of main menu icon popping up

Anonymous, Turn off. Disconnect the power cord from the rear/bottom. Press and hold in the power button for 10 seconds. Reconnect the power cord. Power on. If that does not stop it, it is broken and will need to be replaced. Thank You, Dell -Jesse L Dell Social Media and Communities

What is vga/dvi cables

VGA and DVI is in the way the video signals travel. VGA connectors and cables carry analog signals while DVI can carry both analog and digital. DVI is newer and offers better, sharper display compared to VGA. You can easily tell them apart because VGA connectors (and ports) are blue while DVI connectors are white.

Padlock icon

Many monitors have an on-screen display lock (the padlock icon) that seems to get stuck. Various suggestions in the links below - the one that seems to work most often is to hold the monitor's menu button down for 15-20 seconds to get the screen menu, then either try unlocking the OSD (On Screen Display) or do a factory reset on the monitor. http://www.fixya.com/support/t448684-flashing_padlock_icon_in_middle_screen http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/Dell-LCD-Monitor-Flashing-Padlock-Icon/index.htm Different monitors have slightly different menus, but if it's a Dell monitor you can find the manual below (under Display): http://support.dell.com/support/systemsinfo/documentation.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~cat=3

My monitor keeps shutting off

9 times out of 10 this is a capacitor burned out on the power board. To repair it you will have to have some soldering ability and be able to get the parts or you can see if you can get a power board for your monitor. http://compare.ebay.com/like/310644115747?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar 27.99

Monitor green light is on but no image what's the problem?

Pretty good bet that your monitor power supply has bad caps. There are about 6-10 caps that age and "bulge". The fix is simple. Google it. Total cost to fix (if you know how to solder) is probably less than $2.00.
