Dead monitor I just moved into a new house and as soon as I went to set up my computer my monitor did not power on. When I plug it in the on/off button flashes like its turning on but quickly turns off and nothing happens. I have tried both different power cables as well as different outlets.. Same results.. Am I out of luck or is it a simple fix..

    Took the tower in for video card replacement and now the monitor won't power up. Power button and screen flicker briefly when power is connected and that is all.

I've the same problem with my 1950. I'm told it is a problem with the logic card, and not the power supply. to 'The Marv', I don't know what the graphics card has to do with 'louee's' problem of the power not coming on..

Make sure the monitor is connected to the right video graphics card. This will happen if you are using the wrong one. Because at one time someone added another graphics card. Move the computer and put the monitor cable back in the wrong port on the back of the computer.

Check your power cables properly and make sure it is attached. Check your power button, maybe you have pressed the wrong one.

My lcd monitor is not working after power failure (syncmaster 170t) .

The monitor was probably fried during the power outage due to a spike just before the power went out.
On the power brick check to see if there is an LED light and see if that is lit when its plugged in. If its not lit up then you may want to try a new power brick, if it is lit up then your monitor is a dead.

Based on what you have stated your Dell monitor is dead. Seek support/replacement under warranty. If you purchase this with a credit card you have a double warranty through your credit card. You'll have to suffer through Dell's phone support to allow them to troubleshoot your dead monitor but be patient and a new or newer model will be on its way to you soon.

Hope this helped you and fixed your dilemma.

HP Flat Panel Monitor is dead!

The power supply within the monitor has probably expired. HP doesn't do spare parts for their TFT monitors as they are Full Unit Replacement items (if in warranty).


Does the power supply have its own power switch?

It is located next to where the power wire plugs into the back of the PC.

CRT Monitor-Compaq presario VM700

Hi Snandy, I absolutely despise monitor and computer sleep or hibernation modes. Before I started routinely disabling this on all the computers I supported my users were always having problems no matter how computer literate they were. I know this sounds simplistic and you may have already done it but have you just unplugged the monitor? If that doesn?t work maybe the PC itself has gone to sleep as well. Try moving the mouse, hitting a keyboard key. If that doesn?t work try pushing the power button on the computer to turn it on. If all else fails pull the power plug on the computer itself, plug back in and it should start up. I would suggest disabling all of this via Windows Power settings in the control panel. Let us know if you have any other questions and again please don?t forget to rate the post.
