Flat screen monitor out?

  1. Not even sure if anyone can help with this, and more than likely my flat screen monitor is a goner. What happened is it just simply stopped working. No power surge, no falling off my desk. Just kaput. The only thing that happens is that by the button, the green light that turns on when the monitor is on, flashes in 7 second incriments, which tells me its getting power. There is no power adapter, just a regular cable, the exact same as what plugs into a computer tower. So is there some kind of trick I'm missing to get it working again?

    You need to try another monitor to eliminate the possibility of the computer at being fauly and not the monitor

    I have 6 computers in my home networked. I switched the original power cord for a known working one, and hooked up the monitor to a working computer that I always use. More than likely the monitors toast. Thanx anyway
