    I have a monitor, Packard Bell Maestro 220Wdv, and when I turn it on, it goes good but after some seconds (usually 4 or 5) it goes totally black. A tech told me that its a problem from the power supply. I don't know what to do. Thanks for advance.

    Sounds like an inverter or power supply problem. possibly a backlight.

    a BRAND AND MODEL would maybe help.

That's better.
Yep, 95% chance it is the power inverter problem.
If you don't remember the screen having a pink tint or flickering for a while or being dark at the middle top or bottom before it went, then your bulbs should be okay.
It will need at least all the capacitors replaced.
I fix many of these types on ebay.

Why does screen go black after a few seconds

Hope this helps.... Your monitor has an inverter issue. You know it's an inverter problem when:
1. Your monitor starts normally and displays the startup/desktop screen for a while.
2. Then it suddenly goes off, leaving a blank (black) screen or a very dim display.

To fix this black screen problem, change the inverter board (based on your monitor brand).

Monitor goes off and on by itself

Hello bjaykaye,

The problems you are having are an indication of a Power Supply problem. The issue could be in the switching power supply or the High Voltage Power Supply. The shutdown circuit is activating which is allowing the TV to play until it detects an over-current event. When an over-current event happens the shutdown circuit will turn the TV off. I would suggest that you check the Horizontal Output Transistor, the HV Transformer, the Horizontal damper diode, and the capacitors that are in parallel to the damper diode. The important thing is to find the component that is causing the problem. If you do not have a background in electronics I would suggest that you get a qualified electronics technician to look at the set.

Thank you,

Why does my HP vs17 monitor screen keep going to blank black screen like it turned off but did' power button light is still on? Everything is running but no picture.....keeps happening everytime...

this old monitor has 2 issues.
1: it has CCFL tubes that love to burn out (backlamps)
most this old are long go, yell,dim.,blinking or DEAD.
2: push the menu button on front of mon. turn off power saver.

3: if the PC goes to sleep, or hibernete mode (parked)
then that is 100% normal
if you dont like feature then go to windows control panel
click power, ICON and turn off all monitor sleep /hibernate modes.

that assumes windows, no OS stated.

if the lamps are dead,
use flash light pointed to sceen, see data. ? bingo for bad CCFT tubes.
as seen here

Monitor comes on for seconds and then goes black

This may be because the resolution that is set in your user profile when you log on has been changed to a resolution not supported by the monitor. The best way to fix this is by going into Safe Mode (press F8 as the computer starts to load Windows) and change it to a lower resolution once you get logged in. 1024X768 is a pretty safe resolution to start with. Then restart and see if that fixes the issue.

Monitor screen goes out (black) 2 seconds after turning on

Your site is extremely misleading and fraudulent. I was under the impression that I would at least get a hint at what might be a problem instead of you folks making me wait to get a money for something answer that you could have displayed on your main page. Places like yours have no place on the internet and I'm going to find out what I can do to report you.

Thank's for nothing

Monitor Randomly Turns Black

I have exactly the same problem with my Benq FP71E+ ..

What i found is a temp fix is this :

When monitor dims and goes black i turn it off , hit the bottom left side (near the BENQ logo) turn it on again and it works ..

This works every time for me . But after a while it switches off again , could be 5 minutes could be 5 hours . Its random

Monitor problem: screen goes black, then comes in scrambled

It sounds like this one needs component-level troubleshooting, probably in the power supply section. One or more backlights may be going out, too.

Philips monitor problem

Check that the pc to monitor vga lead is not loose at both ends, check your graphics drivers are upto date, although it could well be a monitor fault and replacment required, as don't think they are worth reparing these days
