Blinking Blue Power Led on front, Monitor is non-responsive
Does anyone know what this means? Maybe there's something loose inside....I'm not feeling real confident about taking it apart, I've torn apart laptops and computers before without problems, this seems a bit tougher.
Is this going to serve as an expensive paper weight for me or do you think there's something I can do to fix? Nothing displays on screen, just blue power LED on front flashing every few seconds or so when plugged in.
Any help is appreciated...

I had a similar proglem with the Blue light flashing briefly and getting a glimpse of the screen. I fixed it by replacing C922, a 1000uf 16volt electrolytic capacitor as was suggested in another section here. These capacitors bulge on top when they fail, so if yoy take off the back cover you can look for C922 and see if the top is bulging. Compare it with other similar capacitors on the board. Good luck.

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Is the monitor still under warranty? (probably only the first 12 months)
Try connecting the monitor to a different desktop/notebook computer, to see if it is fine.
If it is, you have a problem with the video-card in your computer, not a problem with your monitor.
There are "capacitors" inside the monitor, that serve to supply "smooth" and "ripple-free" power to the electronic circuits. If you have "bad" capacitors, they are not doing what they should be doing, which causes the electronics to malfunction.
So, if your monitor is a CRT monitor, it's time to responsibly recycle it, and buy a new one.
If your monitor is an LCD monitor, take it to any TV/video repair shop, and pay them $25 to $50 to "inspect" it, looking for "bad caps". Or, spend that $25 to $50 to buy a new LCD monitor.
if i want turn off the monitor it does not turn off. Connected or not connected is the same while when it was good if there wasn't the signal output the led was orange. Now if there is or there isn't the signal output the blue led blinks
was it dropped..?? the indicator light should b solid not flashing.. If you held the power switch in for several min an nothing Try plugging the cord directly into the wall. Do not use power strips as they may have failed.Toggle the voltage regulator switch from 115V to 230V then back again. If you are in North America, this switch must be on 115V. you may have a loose connection in the machine Lastly, you may need to go inside the case and confirm the thin wires running from the front power and reset switches are connected to the motherboard., to check be sure u are grounded an check all connections inside the computer... If the LED is still flashing, the power supply is probably bad.
Front buttons . Remove the lower front speaker covers/panels by pulling . Then unplug connector ZF to the keypad . Then wait 3 minutes and try to turn it on with the remote . You may have to remove the access panel to find connector ZF (just follow the wiresdown from the front keypad). Don't touch , turn or break anything else while inside the access panel!
Let me know if that works
Assuming that your monitors are good, if nothing is shown on the monitor, that means it does not receive any signal from the computer (or CPU). When you bought it, did they show you the computer and monitor are in good working condition (that means Windows desk top screen comes up on the monitor if it is a PC). If everything was OK when they showed you, but when you took it home, it does not any more, then maybe something became loose while transportation.
Make sure that when you turn the computer on, you hear the fan on the power supply and inside the computer running, and there should be some lights in front of the computer . If you do not hear anything nor see any lights in front of the computer then that is the reason nothing comes up on monitor. If it is the case, you may want to remove the cover of the computer and physically inspect inside the computer to see if anything becomes loose while transportation.
I bought my monitor last year and had it for only a couple of months and the same thing, it is blinking the yellow and blue led. I can't believe that so many people are having the same problem. I went to the I-INC web site and there is nothing posted about this problem. I think that they really need to address this and let the consumers know what is going on with this. I feel like just trashing this monitor. I ahd to end up buying a cheap bulky monitor to replace it.
