This is a generic symptom that could happen to any LCD monitor.
The following is a generic answer applicable to most.

Two possible causes are bad capacitors or a bad light inside the LCD panel.

Open the unit and check to see if any of the capacitors in the power supply or other boards look domed or vented on the top.

Replace any capacitors accordingly. Use the same value capacitors. Most often, 1000uF 16V or 25V, 470uF at 16 or 25V, 220uF at 16V or 25V.

If this doesn’t solve the problem, try checking the surface-mount transistors on the inverter board that run the lights. Some times these transistors go bad. Check the area for any cracked or overheated ceramic or mylar capacitors.
Also, you may have a bad light inside the panel. This is tough to test without a spare light to use for troubleshooting.

You can take the panel apart and inspect the lamps but it is very tedious. It's tough enough to get them apart and back together again never mind keeping the layers clean. You have to try not to get any dust between the layers or you will see it in the picture.

There are usually two light fixtures each of which holds two lamps. One fixture is at the top and one at the bottom. Remove them one at a time and inspect the lamps to see if any are broken or very dark on the ends. If one looks out of place, it could be bad.

You'll have to find replacement lights on the net. It's not easy to replace them, but if you've gone this far, good luck. You should be able to get generic instructions off of the site that sells the lamps.

Got an acer aspire ax3812 tower is on but screen stays blank got any ideas

Change the internal Ram sticks. This can cause a "Hold" in the BIOS boot process, thereby stopping the machine from going to the Operating System. Hope this helps.

If the power light does not turn color and stay's green on startup, it is not a power problem. It is most likely the inverter. If the unit is in warranty, send it out ASAP. Contact HP customer care by email and have the issue logged in.
If in warranty, they will send you a box by FedX second day and have repaired.
This is a 19" monitor and will not be worth paying for repairs if not in warranty.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

Whilst using my computer the monitor went blank. I turned the monitor off and back on. It stayed on for less than a second before going blank again. There was power to the monitor. I left it for a few...

can u boot into the safe mode and see if the monitor will work cause it sounds like to me that you either have a driver that is failing or the monitor is failing

Sylvania (proview) cl2072b flat panel monitor

Well the first and second paragraphs make me say the Inverter/power board must be replaced.

A white display typically means either your display cable (in your monitor) is loose or logic board is dead.

Either one of these things typically mean take it in for an estimate to repair, and if it's too much, buy a new one.
With your luck I think I might switch to big cheap CRT.
