My new monitor turns on then goes blank after a few seconds.
After continuously turning my monitor on and off (this can't be good for it) for about three minutes it will finally show what's on the screen without going dark. If I leave it and the screen saver comes on it will do the same thing. Is this a power issue, hardware issue or possibly software issue?

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
board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.
advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to
solve the problem of the blank screen.
It basically goes to Power Save Mode. Check for the same error in System Setup screen, if the Monitor goes off in System Setup then you better need a replacement. Else you would need to reseat the Video Card(If any) and the Memory Modules. Please keep posting for any further issues / improvements.
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.
You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Hi , The monitor flicker problem. The monitor when turn on will display image for couple of second then turn black. The monitor status led is still green. This will happen each time it is turn on. The symptom at appear to come from the inverter board.
Luckily I'm not in it for the money so here's your answer. (Sorry drumbanger.)
When it goes black, look at your power button. Is it still green? If so, the backlight display is bad. If the power light has turned orange, you're most likely looking at a power/inverter problem. Sadly, if you don't have another monitor that you can swap parts out with, you're looking at a new monitor. But with the economy on the downslide, replacements keep getting cheaper! Research online and you'll find some fantastic deals! Rate me if you find this helpful.
It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.
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)
