Hi there i'm Tim and will be helping you today. Sorry you are having this problem with your display.
unfortunately there is probably no good news here, Monitors are kind of like TV's, they either turn on or they don't. You said you are seeing no lights indicating it's getting power and a black screen (no back lighting at all), The unit is most likely dead. It is somewhat rare for a LCD to die these days, but it does happen from time to time, one thing you can try is replacing the power cored if you think there is a chance it got damaged, but again this would be unlikely. I can tell you what is not causing it though, that would be the Macbook pro, we can tell this since you are seeing no power indicator on the LCD Display. The Good news is displays are pretty affordable, i'm sorry to have to deliver bad news.
Please let me know if there is more i can help with.
