    Around Christmas last year my Acer G276HL Monitor had a broken power button that wouldn't click in. But it functioned, then eventually the light started flickering blue/orange very lightly and would NOT turn on. I left it till around 2 months ago when i was cleaning my PC and saw the montor and thought why not give it a go, and it worked. Now yet again the issue has arisen, My PC works and my second monitor turns on and shows the other desktop, it's acting as if the main montior is working, but the monitor itself is not turning on and the light is flickering lightly blue/orange and every now and then will turn full orange brightly for a second or two then go back to flickering

    So what are you asking; can it be fixed? Yes, just about anything can be fixed however the cost of having it repaired is going to exceed the cost of a new monitor. I checked and that monitor is $149 at amazon. With shop labor at $85 per hr or so plus the cost of parts, it is more cost effective to just replace the monitor.

    If you are VERY well versed in soldering and have diagnostic equipment to find what part failed, then probably yes. From your post, I would surmise a pw supply board problem with the monitor. However that is just a guess.
    FWIW acer stuff is very low end and [generally] not worth repairing. Up to you if you want to invest time and money into attempting to fix the monitor.
