    Any other electronic equipment damaged? Is it on a surge suppressor?

Be sure that the power cable and the video cable are plugged into your monitor, the power cable is plugged into a good outlet, and the video cable is plugged into your computer. It's possible that you simply have a loose cable.

If everything is installed correctly, and if the screen is completely blank (no "cable disconnected" or "test mode" messages), then it sounds like your monitor is simply dead. Since there was a heavy wind storm recently, it was probably hit by a power surge. If you don't already, I recommend that you use a surge protector for all digital equipment.

The monitor was working fine this morning came home switched on no picture switched of monitor and turned back on to find that the picture returned for a brief moment then the screen went blank again try...


If you did see an image when you turned it off and on, then more than likely it is the inverter or ccfl backlights in the monitor. You would have to take it in to a tech for repairs, but in most instances it is just cheaper to buy a new monitor.

Screen goes blank when first turned on, have to keep restarting m


Hello,

If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

Power but imediate black screen theres small point in the middle


Hello,

From the problem you describe, it seems to me that the picture board on your monitor is bad that is why you have slant line and blank screen, i would suggest you first check all the connection to make sure they are all in place and make contact, if all is in place and yet still have blank screen, you will need to replace the picture board on your monitor because the cause of the problem is the picture board.

Replace the picture board on the monitor to solve the problem, once the picture board is replace, the problem is solve.

Take care.

Screen blank


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Screen Goes Blank


Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

Unplug the cable from your PC, if the monitor shows a test image, the monitor is fine and the problem is with your graphic card. If you dont see nothing on-screen after unpluging the cable from the PC, then the monitor in damaged. Send it to repair.
