I would check the cable and connector pins first. Then I would suspect there's a problem with the video signal board inside the monitor. It could be the LCD panel controls, too. That would make the unit beyond economical repair unless you got a used one.

No power output or display.green standby light flashes.

Sounds like either a blown mainpower fuse or the thermal fuse for the power transformer. If the protect circuit was kicking in, the display would light up, but then turn off with a red blinking light. the green light with no display means the transformer is not getting power.

Nothing comes on picture blank

Ok
A few things to try
1.) Check the laptop on an external monitor, do you get a picture
2.) Is there power to the laptop from the battery and the charger? Try to see if the charger indicator lamp is blinking green rather than steady green
3.) Can you hear hard drive / fan noises and are there any lights on the laptop?

If the charger is blinking, indicates that power is not making the circuit, check tightness of charging port, if tight, assume fault on motherboard / blown main fuse

If picture on external monitor and not on laptop, assume backlight on screen dead or possibly the inverter

If no noises from HDD or Fan and No lights on laptop, then fault with motherboard

If you do get fan noises etc, but get BLINKING lights on laptop, assume possible fault with graphics chip, repost with details of blinking lights / colour and specific model of laptop

Power light blinks yellow and then green, won't display any picture. just black

there could be a few issues here.

1. backlight may have gone out how you can check:

Take a flash light to the display if you see something then its your back light,

2. Power supply inside the unit, unplug the unit take the back off then uncover the shoud that covers the power supply and check for bulging capacitors if you have bad capacitors this can happend as well.

3. check the monitor with another computer and so forth.

Ok i start with the worse to the least cause of your issue, i hope this information does help please do make sure you leave your ratings for your advice before you leave.

Green Power light blinking

Check the resolution in the Windows while connected to the old monitor. If greater than 1280 X 1024 and/or the refresh rate exceeds 75 Hz, the monitor may not respond. But you should at least see the BIOS splash when the computer is turned on. If that does not appear, maybe a problem has occurred in the monitor. Another indicator: if you turn the monitor power button off and then back on, you should get some sign of life such as "no signal", or "out of range". If nothing appears, that would indicate some problem within the monitor.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Does the computer turn on all the way now or does it start to boot and then turn off?

Your Power Supply is no good, you are going to have to get it replaced. Once you get it replaced everything should be fine.

Power light steady green but monitor goes dark after 4 secs of video

The video card in the computer could be going bad too or the driver for the video has corrupted. Try reloading the video drivers in the PC first.

Blinking power button

It could also be because there is a problem with the display controller in the computer. Try to hook up another monitor to this computer and see if it comes up. If it does not work with another monitor, the computer will need servicing. If the display does come up, the Samsung monitor will need service. Good Luck
