Power light blinks but the screen is black and won't come on.

Last night my Samsug 20-22'' (?) monitor was on but dark. The on/off button had a blinking blue light going. I pushed the button but no change - the monistor would not come on. I rebuted the computer. I unplugged the monistor and replugged it. No change. Is my monitor fixable or do I get another one....Thanks, Bob

Is it an LCD monitor?
if so then it's more than likely the backlight tubes or the backlight tubes inverter supply has died is it fixable but i am not sure how much it will cost you at your local repairer and monitors are so cheap these days its probably not worth it!
hope this helps,ben

Try a different video card or disconnect the one you have in your PC and use the VGA monitor connection on the motherboard. If it works your video card is gone.

Blinking Power Light and monitor will not come back on....


The monitor needs an internal eletronic repair. Do you have the the necessary anti static tools including soldering iron. If so I can help you with the repair, else take it to a pro.

Blue power button flashing with blank screen


This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's the problem. You can confirm that it's the monitor and not your computer or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try.

If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old it is, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

Monitor stuck on black, menu buttons not responding


It's sort of a solution, but I work in a computer shop and got this screen in yesterday. I looked at it closely and it's actually the backlight that died. I pulled it apart and found that three of the 820uF/20V capacitors had swollen up. If you replace them then you should be fine, but I went for a different approach and took the inverter board from a laptop and put the in the screen and used an external power supply. It's a bit dark but it works fine now.
