Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. I would say that if the power light blinks, literally, there could be a problem with the DVR. If the power light is steady but the HDD light blinks, then you have a different thing to see to, to get the monitor working:- I don't know what maker or model # ***** monitor it is, but, it may have an HDMI input too. If so, it may be set to get signal from the HDMI input. If anything like that could be true, find the MENU button on the monitor, and try to set its INPUT SOURCE or SIGNAL SOURCE to 'VGA' port.That should get a picture up on the monitor, I think.
