Re: monitor turning off

If I understand you problem correctly, your monitor is turning off when it remains idle? Does it come back on when you use the keyboard or move the mouse? If so, then this could just be caused by the computer's power-save settings. This can be adjusted by right clicking on the the desktop and selecting propeties. Go to the screensaver tab and click on the power button. From here, you can either set the "Turn Off Monitor Time" to never, or to a greater period of time.

The monitor is registering no signal

No signal is not a problem with the monitoe unless the cabe is disconnected from either the PC or the monitor ends.

If the cables is securely attached at both ends it indicates the PC is not sending a video signal to the monitor.
Could be the PC hasn't booted up propperly.
Turn the PC off , wait 2 minutes and turn it back on.
Observe any lights on the front of the PC , especially disk activity light.. it should flicker .. alot.
If not then you have a PC issue not a monitor issue

At this point I would suspect the capacitors failure in the power supply, that will be he first thing to look for, see example of failed monitos due to bad caps:

Acer X223W monito won;t wake up after sleep.

I have a dual monitor system, both are the x223w. Same problem but only on the second monitor. Backlight shuts off.On/off light stays blue. I have to turn off the monitor and turn it back on. I returned it and Acer could not find any problem so I got it back. No problem for awhile and now a few times over the past couple days. Not good...

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

My monitors turn off after a minute

maybe you have a "cold solder", if unit keep turning on when it's cold, is it... If you have the skill to open it and you have a solder iron, maybe you can try to fix it, if you don't leave it to the repairman.
