  • Cragars Nov 08, 2008

    Mine blinks too but it does eventually come on, then its good the rest of the day/night until I do a cold start again the next day. It usually takes 20 -30 minutes for it to come on. Same problem? If its not caps what elese would it be?

    I HAD the same problem for a few weeks. Now it is completely unresponsive. I've swapped it for working monitors on 2 other computers to verify that it is this monitor. Also swapped cables and power cords, all to no avail. Unfortunately, it's out of warranty (of course) so it's off to Best Buy for a new one. At least I can get one of the wide-screens now.

    Mine started doing this 2 days ago and it is driving me nuts. I have since put an older monitor on my computer and it works fine. I've had this monitor about 3 years now and really like it. I don't like the newer ones that are out so will take it to the shop to see if it can be fixed.

    Mine blinks too but the monitor eventually comes 20 - 30 minutes later, then its fine the rest of the day/night until I do a cold start again the next day. So would it be the caps or something else?

A blinking blue light indiactes that your power-inverter board is not putting out what it should. It needs an overhaul which may be a simple as changing out the capacitors on the boards.
It could go beyong that to transistors or even a bad bulb.
It will have to be opened up to do that.
A picture may show visual signs of damage. If you can take one and email it to me , I'll take a look.

I have a hp w2207 flat screen monitor. when turning power on, power blue light blinking and no picture. what can I check or look for to find and fix the problem?

That blue blinking light could be the fact that there is not a signal from the PC to the monitor itself. You could have lost your video card, corrupt driver for video card or monitor. If you have a PC with separate video card and a mother board video output, try switching to the one you are not using and rebooting the PC

Screen is black when computer is turned on. Tthe monitor power button blinks, but when you push the button, the light does not stop blinking and the screen stays black.. The monitor was working and last...

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.

It is possible that the video card in cpu is bad, try hooking up another monitor to the cpu (computer) if you have one that will let you know if it is the monitor or the computer video card, Could be as simple as the driver is missing.

Hp pavilion f1703 blue monitor power button flashesw/ dark screen

Have you tried connecting this monitor to another computer, even a laptop. This would tell you whether the display is bad or the video card is the culprit. I suspect the monitor's power supply is dying. Taking it to a pro for repair should cost @55.00. Buying a new monitor @ $100 - $125.

Monitor : no display and blue led light is blinking

The power supply is the first thing that the 110v electric line goes into. The invertor is the next item past the power supply, or sometimes contained within it. I do not thing monitors are a DIY repair.      First substitute a different monitor to confirm that it is, in deed , the monitor and not the video card.

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.
