Question about R.A.M. Computers IX PACIUP4240 15'' LCD TV / DVD / PC CIU Combo (2.4 GHz and 256MB RAM ) (PACIUP4240L) PC Desktop

1 Answer

HP LCD monitor power button repeatedly blinking blue.

My computer is about a year old. It is a Compaq media edition and in excellent condition. About a week ago my monitor went into standby whenever I would turn my computer off, whenever I would turn the system back on - I could not see a thing on the screen. So I switched the monitor out, thinking if it didn't work it would be the tower itself. Well, it worked and now I am using one of those big, clunky, white old school monitors without sound, which drives me crazy when I cannot listen to music/watch tv shows etc.

I've tried everything that I know of to fix this problem, but no matter what I do - the power light still blinks blue. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm trying to save the 200 bucks it would cost to go get it looked at.

    No, it wasn't a duel monitor. My monitor was not working so I simply unplugged it and hooked up another moniter. I'm still trying to fix my lcd monitor, which is the one that's blinking repeatedly.

Alright let me be the first, let's check the simple things first. Did you try toggling the FN+F5 or FN+F6....if it is playing on the other monitor you already did that or it was toggled for dual monitor and that's why you're not getting any video.

    I apologize I thought you were using a laptop....however, given the fact that you can use a monitor then it is not your Compaq but rather the monitor itself. There are no tricks or troubleshooint methods on DeskTop monitors as they are simple like televisions. The problem is inside the monitor and that can only be serviced by someone who works on monitors or T.V.s. The monitor carries an alarming amount of electricity that can cause electrocution to an untrained individual.

How do I troubleshoot an unresponsive HP LCD monitor?

The easiest thing to do is find another monitor to plug in to determine if it is the monitor or the computer. Just because something has been stored does not mean that something fried the first time you plugged it back in. LCD monitors are notorious for having bad capacitors.

HOW to reset Compaq S2021A LCD Monitot

* Power the monitor off
* Disconnect all cabling from the bottom and/or sides of the monitor (especially the power cord)
* Press and hold the monitor power button down for 5 seconds
* Reconnect only the monitor power cord and either the #1 blue VGA or #2 white DVI (not both from one video card)
* Power the monitor on
* The PC should already be on. The monitor should auto sense the #1 blue VGA or #2 white DVI. If it does not, press the Input Select button and change to #1 VGA or #2 DVI

Compaq presario s5100nx won't power on

no monitor stated, ! wow. (hard to help this)
generic PC 101:
1: test this monitor on any other PC.(vga)
2: test this PC on any other VGA monitor .
either test above quickly proves which end is bad.
easy no?, just one simple test and 1/2 the causes go byebye...

if the PC goes dead the monitor goes to sleep mode. and HP monitor shows yellow power. lamp.

I will do simple monitor tests now
even with NO PC connected. (basics)

1: most monitors will even a sign on message, with no PC.
a HP logo graphic, Compaq logo shows. or some text.
newer monitors show logo message "energystar" every time.
then shows..... (the last means PC is setup wrong)
errors. then goes black.

if it shows nothing ever, the monitors 15 year old
CCLF tubes inside are now dead, 99% are now.
the LCD back light lamps died long ago , on most.
if the back lamps are good from year 2003,.wow
then.... (like finding 1995 car that runs)

the monitors OSD screen on most will work now.
on demand !by YOU.
for a few seconds, lacking a PC connection.
power on and hammer the menu key see OSD.? even for 1second.
This works best with working PC, the OSD will not work at all with a dead PC but some screens can be tricked into showing the OSD for few seconds at power on, no PC conn., (it's super good to know these facts,when screen is dead or partly)

you asked about the magic batteries. (cake walk)
well sure, all 15 year old PC have bad RTC coin cell battery on the DESK top , inside mother board.
if never serviced for 15 years it is bad.
replace it, (below 2.9vdc is bad battery(metered)
remove it look at number and get one at walfart.
2032 cells are common

(camera dept, or watches)

my nice test monitor (tech)
HP lE2000x (led) nice and small.
power on (no PC connected)
blue lamp power button glows every time it gets power.
Large menu pops UP, shows scanning VGA/DVI and more for 2 to 3 seconds
then a large white menu pops
and shows "monitor going to sleep" in clear English. (means PC is dead , this case missing)

the blue led power lamp goes from blue to yellow
and screen is now black. (all 100% normal)
these are what all LCD do powered on.

if the monitor is totally 100% dead all ways from Sunday, then it is. as all are now with CCLF tubes
99.9% are dead, if used.
the lamps last 20,000 hrs and DIE.913c8268-90a1-42b6-be05-ed78514f589e.jpg

About how old is a 17" compaq 7600 monitor?-any reliability issues with this one?

This monitor is 2-3 years old.

There are not any real reliability issues, but it is a crt monitor, meaning that it uses more power then todays lcd monitors.

Its worth about $50 used.

I have a HPw1907 monitor and it will turn on for about 2 seconds, and it turns off. The CPU is fine, just a problem with the monitor. Any way to fix this?

We have the same model of monitor and had the same problem few days ago. The monitor just goes black/turns off. I noticed that the power button has a yellow blinking light and cannot be turn on/off again using the power button. The CPU is working fine also. When I turn off the avr, the power button's light turns blue for a few second and you can hear a click sound from the back of the lcd before it totally turns off. My lcd monitor is over a year old now and is 110v or 220v capable. Mine was originally in a 220v, i just put it in 110v and the monitor was fixed.. Hope this can somehow fix your problem.

HP f1703. After a power outage, when computer is


It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Computer power button for the monitor blinks blue

there are two reasons for this to happen there are blown capacitors inside the monitor and or there transistors on the board that have failed. both can be repaired.

Power Light Blinking & Black Screen

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.
