When I have the monitor off for any period of time it doesn't want to come back on. When I push the button on the monitor next to the power button it mostly comes on. But it fades in slowly. It is getting more and more difficult to light the monitor up. Sounds like a monitor problem to me,,,what do you think??

Re: monitor needs help turning on
Sounds like the back light inverter board is bad.
It's a very common problem.
LCD's use four small cold compact fluorescent bulbs to back light the display. (thats what gives the LCD it's brightness allowing you to see it)
The inverter board runs these lights and when they go bad they will typically show symptoms like you have or the monitor power light comes on and you have either no display or a very dim display.
If you ever have one that has no display but the power light is on you can check by shining a flashlight directly into the LCD from the front (right into the screen) if you can see an image then it's either the inverter board (most likely) or the CCFL bulbs have gone bad.
The inverter board and CCFL's are replaceable.

Make sure that the cable is connected from your computer to the monitor, and if it is wiggle it and push it in all the way. If it has screws, screw them in. If that does not work, check that your monitor is on the correct input (if it has multiple) then see if anything comes on the monitor. If nothing happens you should buy a new cable from the store. If all of those steps do not work your computer or your monitor might have a more serious problem.
Try pushing the two buttons that have a little green circle next to them at the same time for two seconds. This should reset all the basic settings on your camera. If this still doesn't work then you should contact your local Nikon authorized service center for repairs. Hope this helps!

mcdevito75 here, You should have an AUTO button on your monitor that when pressed or pushed it"ll automatically adjust your monitor picture. If this doesn"t help you can try the menu button to adjust manually.
joeyordoviz, Software or drivers will NOT fix your monitor's problem!!! Stop pushing the "on/off" button!! It should take one and only one push of the button to turn it "on"!!! Joey, with all the lcd monitors (ALL BRANDS) that have been produced and now in use, at least three or four will suffer the same exact symptom that your monitor has in the next 24 hour period of time. The one good thing that you stated in your problem description is the last three words! We Technicians here at FIXYA require some help from you in the form of UNIT HISTORY so that we can evaluate and give a more detailed response to you. Your monitor most likely suffers from (best guess) a single "thermally intermittant" "frosty looking" "cold" solder joint on the "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter circuit" printed circuit board and possibly BAD/FAILED (swollen) electrolytic filter capacitors on that same board. You or a qualified electronics technician will need to investigate the unit if IIYAMA/Prolite warranty service not an option!! Remember this! Your CCFL backlit lcd monitor is NO DIFFERENT than any other brand in it's BASIC design and mode of operation!!! If you spend some time READING my and other tech's FIXYA profiles that deal with BLACK or BLACK and BLANK screen lcd monitors you will be able to decide what to do. If this response was helpful in your decision making process, then return to fixya and do additional comment and or testimonial so others can benefit from it also. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie on fixya aka louie12fix
Cig smoke wouldnt effect the buttons, the control board on the monitor is probably bad, this is what tells the monitor to display the menu, make changes, etc... If that has gone bad, pushing buttons would have no effect. Youre probably better off buying a new monitor.
There are two forces involved, one is the monitor itself and the other is a display property. To turn back on press space bar, and that will reactivate.
Your description sounds like your machine may be sleeping or hibernating, these are power options in the control panel...
Some versions of XP did not function very well, like sleep (meaning wake up takes really long time). Adjust those settings and your system should cooperate better.
IF you knew that your machine would take a long time to get going again, and that was normal, would that be okay? To test, press space bar and WAIT, a really long time, I would expect unit to come live, on it's own, eventually....
push menu button once push > button 4 times push menu button once push > button 3 times push menu button once (now you are in the language selection screen) push > button untill english is chosen push menu button now push far left button (has a monitor pic on it
I absolutely despise monitor and computer sleep or hibernation modes. Before I started routinely disabling this on all the computers I supported my users were always having problems no matter how computer literate they were.
I know this sounds simplistic and you may have already done it but have you just unplugged the monitor?
If that doesn?t work maybe the PC itself has gone to sleep as well. Try moving the mouse, hitting a keyboard key. If that doesn?t work try pushing the power button on the computer to turn it on. If all else fails pull the power plug on the computer itself, plug back in and it should start up. I would suggest disabling all of this via Windows Power settings in the control panel.
