Having problems with your Compaq FP 7317 17" LCD Monitor ?

Green light and screen flash then go blank every 3-5 seconds and nothing else

\015 When I power up it turns the green light on until the monitor flashes, then it all goes dead. Then every 3-5 seconds it tries again and the green light and the monitor flash then die again, it is a constant cycle (over and over). This is my first flat panel and I bought it used (guess I should have got new lol)any ideas? Thanx, Will\015

I know im way too late for this, but your power supply is bad or wrong. must be 110 ac input-12 volt 5 amp dc output. just got a used one with no cord, found out the hard way. of course. had a 12v dc output but it was only 564ma. about 1/2 amp which did exactly the same thing
Heat from the switch mode power supply in the unit will detierorate the 1000mfd/16volt caps.I replaced all 4 of mine to restore from a dead unit
