Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Gateway 900g monitor will not turn on. When the power button is pushed, the blue light just flashes.


Answers :

Check the monitor with a known-good cable. Look for bent pins in the connector to be safe. Next, have a bright flashlight handy. Dim or turn off the lights in the room. Turn on the flashlight and hold it very close to the screen. Look around the screen carefully and try to see a dim image in the display--if you can see the computer image, it means a problem exists with either the power supply section or, the actual display section. What is happening in this case is two(2) extemely thin, very bright, fluorescent tubes are failing to ignite. These tubes are usually laid top and bottom on the larger monitors, out of view by the user. Their light is transmitted through a series of specially designed plastic sheets which reflect against a shiny back sheet--this gives you the crisp, bright whites and colors in the image. Warning: if repairable, this is a very involved repair. Have purchasing a new monitor in the back of your mind if you send the unit out to a repair facility for a quote.--Just my thoughts--Rick
Mine does the same thing if the monitor isnt connected to computer with just the power on it.\015\012

The power light blinks solid blue every four seconds or so (it?s off in-between). The screen is blank. None of the buttons on the side function (such as ?menu?). I have a second similar monitor from the computer in the other room I?m using to type this proving the video card and cable are fine. We?ve always (as in years) left the monitor on (w/ a screen saver) but for whatever reason turned it off for four days when we went away recently. The monitor would then not turn back on.
