I too have an LCD Xerox - it worked fine for a while, then kept going blank. Unplugging and reconnecting from both pc and power seems to reset it. It hadn't happened for months but started again the other night when it occurred to me that I have downloaded MS security updates - I've removed the ones that I downloaded just before it started happening again and the problem seems to be solved. Hope this helps someone.

An all too common problem with lcd's, you would think they would be more reliable after being on the market for years, alas they are not. See if it does the same thing on a friends PC if you are able; if so the you will know the lcd is faulty.

My monitor comes on and then goes off

Time for a new monitor. I have the same problem. Tried the monitor on three different PCs and it turns on for 2 seconds then goes blank, power stays on (green LED on power switch).
Temporary solution that worked for 1 day was to turn the brightness to 0 if you can manage to keep it on long enough to use the menu.

The screen goes blank after 1 second display, flicks back again to the display for 1 second and back to blank, this goes on non stop. The little led next to the on/off button goes from green to yellow...

pandres, Your monitor will need troubleshooting to find out reason why the 2 "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" fail to remain lighted. They provide "white light" so you can see what is on the lcd panel. Connect a "known good" monitor to your pc to prove monitor is bad. If pc is ok, then your monitor will need repair. This type problem not new and is very common for all brands of ccfl back-lit lcd monitors. Watch some video clips at YOUTUBE that show disassembly and repair of ccfl lcd monitors.

LCD monitor goes blank

It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.

Try this.

Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)
