Blank Screen..Will not power off

The monitor started blanking out(black screen)for short periods while in screen saver and was slow to wake up. Then the blank/black time started to get longer before it would wake up. Now it will not show a picture at all. The green power light is on, but no picture and nothing happens when pushing the power button. I have tried the flash light...No picture visable. I thought it might be the cable but it woul still displa the menu..right? Any suggestions?

Re: Blank Screen..Will not power off

Have you checked your video source to ensure that this isn't a problem with your PC or whatever you're displaying on it? Try using a different display and see what happens. Try putting this LCD on a different PC and see what happens. If indeed it is this screen then it could be something as simple as a loose cable. Start simple and work from there.

Disable the Screen Saver in the Display Properties from Control Panel of your Computer.

My monitor goes blank after being idle for a short time why

its a power saver feature.

to change it this is what you do:

if your operating system is Windows Vista: right click on the desktop, ans click on "personalize", then click on "screen saver", and from their click on "change power settings". and make your own custom plan... you can set it so it never shuts off if you would like.

if your operating system is Windows XP: right click on the desktop and go to "properties", then "screen saver", then click on the button that says "power", then from there change it to whatever you want it set at.

Blank Screen..Will not power off

The flash light test only works with lcd monitor as they have back lights. Double check the connections again, also, if you can borrow a monitor try it on your pc, it may be your graphics driver needs to be uninstalled and re-installed, but you will need a monitor to see.
