Yes this is a backlight problem, but most likely it is the circuit that supplies power to the backlight, it will be cheaper to replace it rather than repair it, I base on what I have seen in the past on these types of problems.

Monitor flickers and goes blank after 5 seconds and keep repeating this very often.


Hello,

If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

Comes on for 30 sec. goes black


If you can make out a faint image then the fault is a backlight problem.
The fault could be an inverter board or the CCFL lamp/s

Screen comes on then goes out in 5 seconds. The backlight goes dark but the seen is working, just can't see it. The backlight is out...


mark587, Did you shine a very bright flashlight 1" from the screen to try and see the WIN-desktop ?? Even though the screen appears BLACK. Your words above said: JUST CAN'T SEE IT Did you really NOT see anything? Have you seen any of the longer video clips of "LCD Monitor Disassembly" on YOUTUBE? Some BLACK screen "symptom" lcd displays can be repaired for less than $10 in parts. Capacitors! Also check videos on lcd repair. Then get back here to fixya and I or any of the guys can help you decide what to do with your display whoose screen is now dark and lifeless. After doing the YOUTUBE thing you may even tell us what you will do!!! Hope this was helpful. Yes we do want to hear back from you. please rate this response on fixya. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com. Bye for now.

Monitor is blank/black


It is probably the inverter board inside the monitor.
(if the screen does properly display ever then it is not the screen)
It CAN be fixed but I do not suggest anyone open up a monitor (LCD or CRT)
who is not "technically inclined." If you really want to fix this
particular one then take it to a local tech and get an estimate first. If it's almost as much as a new monitor then buy a new one.
