Problem with BENQ LCD Screen

Hey guys. I'm having a problem with my BENQ LCD screen and since last time I came to the hardware forum for help I got a really positive and helpful response, I'd figure I would come again!

Basically what happens is, when you plug in the screen into the wall, it starts turning on an off, flashing the BENQ logo. And even when it's plugged into a computer that's outputting a signal, it stays stuck in that on/off cycle. Does anyone know what this could be? Is it fixable or not?

My plan is to take it to some repair shop to get it fixed, but I don't want to pay their diagnostic fees just to tell me it can't be fixed.

Thanks in advance,

Most monitors have three years warranty. If its under warranty, take it back.

I don't know if it's under warranty or not. This monitor was given to me like this. Where can I find out if it has a warranty still?

Contact BenQ or whoever you obtained it from if possible.
Typically the monitor is covered for three years from purchase date or the manufacturer date on the back of the monitor.

Manufacturing date in the back of the monitor says September 2003. So it's exactly 5 years old. Am I SOL?

Out of warranty most likely.
Easiest solution is to buy a new one, available now for peanuts.

lol. The whole reason I got that LCD was because they gave it to me for free because it was broken. Oh well. Guess I'll throw it away, then. Thanks people!
