I've had a Sharp LL-172A 17" LCD Monitor for a year now, and it worked perfectly, but today, out of nowhere while doing regular work, it went black, and the power button light went from green to orange. I've tried everything to get it back to life, making sure the cables are connected properly, restarting computer, turning monitor off and on. The weird thing? It doesn't even say "no signal" now. it just turns on, indicator light stays green for 5-10 seconds, and then goes orange. It always said [No Signal] if there was no connection. Really hope someone can help me but I don't see any way to fix it, i don't think it is a driver problem..:mad: Thanks everyone

I would try it on another pc and if it still doesn't start up then you have a dead monitor.

I feared that it might be dead, it's unbelievable that it could be dead after only a year. I've had cheap monitors last 10 years. I can't understand why it would just stop working for no reason. If it is dead, i'm very unsatisfied with the quality of Sharp products.

LCD's are still fairly new technology and I'm sure that every year they improve something in them. Sorry about your monitor - :(

The indications are it's not getting a signal from the computer. However, since the behavior changed, I'd suspect that something has gone south. Have you checked the cable connection at the monitor end? Have you tried it with another computer?
