I think that monitor might have been retired before you bought it; the white screen says that the backlight is working but the pixels are not being controlled by video so either the video cable is trashed or the input electronics are no longer functional.
You might try the following:
Go to the Control Panel, System, Monitor and delete the monitor listed. Then, with the monitor connected and on, reboot the PC to force Win to 'find' the monitor and install a fresh copy of the driver for it.
If that doesn't work, you may just have a paper weight.

Try hooking up to another monitor to confirm where the problem is.

The inverter is the most common item to fail on a LCd monitor. Capacitors usally fail the most. Are the tops of any of them popped up. If you had any shorted transistors the fuse would probably be blown. Usally labeled F1. I would replace all the capacitors first and go from there. Capacitors are cheap.

Monitor black screen


Your first step in troubleshooting this problem is to plug in another monitor to your computer. If you are having the same problem it is related to your computer. If the second monitor works fine then your original monitor is shot.

Scceen flickers on and off


You'll have to describe the problem in a bit more detail, because it could be a couple different things based on when it goes dark and what "dark" means.

I'm going to guess that the monitor is turning itself off after that second, but you might be describing that it doesn't say it's off, but there is no image (or maybe a really faint image that you can see in the bright light). Try checking it in the bright light after it goes dark. Also, does it seem different if you bang on, shake, or turn it upside down. Don't do this if you haven't already as it will more likely damage it than fix it, but if you have already banged on it, does it change?

I'm working on the same model with a similar problem (not sure it's the same) and will be ripping into it soon and will post the results.

Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
