Re: My monitor works for a little while, then goes black.
Your power-inverter board needs an overhaul.
Probably in need of the standard capacitor replacement.
a bulb in the screen is bad (a bad bulb will usually show symptoms)
It will flicker, or will look pinkishish for a bit or dark in the middle top or bottom of the screen.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Monitors are programmed to go to sleep when there is no input. If you
shut it down on the other "tower" also it will do the same. You need to
physically hit the power button on the monitor to actually shut it off.
first off check all the chords and make sure the monitor is turned on. as you have probably done this try to use a different monitor. borrow one for an hour or something. if the second monitor is black as well it is your video card in your PC and you will have to replace it. If it boots as normal that of coarse means that your Xerox monitor is broken and needs to be replaced/repaired. Hope your warranty is still good. Good Luck.
try using a different monitor, borrow one if you have to, if the monitor works on your computer, then it simply means you need a new monitor. As far as the computer shutting down, it may be recording the bad monitor as an error in the loading process and automatically shutting down.
Check the cables, make sure it is secure on both ends. Also see if you pull up the Monitors on screen menu.
As long as the light is green, that means there is a signal. it could be a bad monitor. Shut off all the lights in the room, then grab a Flashlight and hold it against the LCD screen while it
boots into windows. Can you see the desktop now, but very dimm? If you
can see the desktop, then connect Your PC to another monitor (if u have one or a friends, perhaps) and
boot it up, can you see the desktop on the other monitor fine?, then we just ruled out a Bad video card and narrowed it down to either a Bad Inverter in the Screen or LCD back light issue.
probally not worth fixing, because replacement LCD's arent cheap. nowadays at the right sale you can buy a Brand new LCD monitor for as little as $199
Hello, It may be the power is set wrong. Click start, control panel, power options. From here you can set the amount of time you want the monitor or hard drive/s to remain on until the shut down or go into hibernation. Hope this helps.
Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!
