The blue light of the monitor keep flash and no picture appears on the screen

If i turn off the computer or the screen for a long time(normally a night or just a few hours)And turn the machine back on, the light on the monitor will become blue and start flashing and no picture appears on the screen. in order to get it work, i have to turn the pc on and off for so many times (just like doing some sort of warming up) it normally takes about 5-10mins to get the picture shown on the screen. But when i get the screen working, as long as the monitor and the pc is on, nomatter how long i keep it on,or how often i restart the pc. the screen works well. some one please help me.

    I have PRECISELY the same problem. I have a feeling this low cost monitor is on it's last legs - I would suggest one of the cheaper compoonents is about to crap out. So I guess I got what I paid for. (Actually I got it for free :-) , but you get my point. )

    The only thing I can offer is that sometimes I can "force" it to come on by starting Internet Explorer from the shortcut button on my keyboard. But even that does not always work.

    My monitor does not work. My computer works fine but I get no picture or bootup information. Can you help me?

    My problem is with the power settings. If I set the power options in display properties to shut off the monitor for 20 mins. it takes 5-10 times to get it working again whilst the blue light blinks repeatedly with no picture. Yet, it if I set the monitor to never turn off...no problems????????

    I have the same problem. I saved my old CRT display which is what I am now using. I did not think it could be a video board because the button on the monitor that brings up the menu for horizontal and vertical alignment did not work either.

    I guess I have a piece of useless hazardous waste on my hands now.

Is it a Princeton monitor? If it's several years old, that's generally caused by capacitors wearing out on the main board. The monitor is hard to take apart, but if you do get it apart, you will see bulging capacitors on the board. These should be replaced with new ones, preferably of a higher voltage rating, and rated at 105 degrees C. These capacitors can be found in small quantities on eBay. Also, if one capacitor looks bad, change all capacitors of the same type. So if you see one that is (say) 1000 uF, 10 volts bulging, replace all those with 1000 uF / 10V, or better, with 1000 uF, 25 volts. If you see 470 uF / 25 volts bulging, replace it with 470 uF, 35 V. The repair is not easy unless you're accustomed to soldering, so you might want to just replace the whole monitor.

I have exactly the same problem with my Medion 17" TFT monitor. It is not the video card (tried changing it) or the motherboard. Fitting a different monitor makes the problem go away. The monitor does not display the "No Signal" message when unplugged from the PC either. It must be a fault in the monitor, and as it seems to be a design fault. I suggest you contact Medion and nag for a replacement.

Why does my HP vs17 monitor screen keep going to blank black screen like it turned off but did'nt.....blue power button light is still on? Everything is running but no picture.....keeps happening everytime...

this old monitor has 2 issues.
1: it has CCFL tubes that love to burn out (backlamps)
most this old are long go, yell,dim.,blinking or DEAD.
2: push the menu button on front of mon. turn off power saver.

3: if the PC goes to sleep, or hibernete mode (parked)
then that is 100% normal
if you dont like feature then go to windows control panel
click power, ICON and turn off all monitor sleep /hibernate modes.

that assumes windows, no OS stated.


if the lamps are dead,
use flash light pointed to sceen, see data. ? bingo for bad CCFT tubes.
as seen here

Samsung monitor blue flashing light, black screen

Hello,

The picture board of your monitor has developed fault. That is why the screen is black.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity, because the fault is not something you can fix in other not to complicate issues..

The repairer will help diagnose and replace the faulty picture board and your monitor is back and better.

Take care.

Screen will not come on. power light keeps going

Make sure all connections are tight at all plugs and monitor at the motherboard if you have integrated graphics. If possible, try another monitor. You could also try re-loading the drivers, but it sounds more like a hardware issue.
