You're going to have to describe more testing.  Did you try with the VGA connector as well as DVI, if it has both? (there's very little info on it)  If it has a power adapter, did you test it or try a different one that has the same voltage and at least as much current?  A flashing amber light usually means it doesn't detect a signal, so try a different video cable and computer.
