Re: See the picture or 1 second when power on the monitor
This sounds eerily like what happened to me a few months ago with a 15" Omnitech monitor I got at an online auction. Unless you are a tech, or at least confident in dissassembly of your monitor and toruble shooting component problems, you may need to find someone near you to help. My problem was bad capacitors in the inverter board circuit. (Google BAD CAPS or go to badcaps.com for more info on that.) I got really lucky that two of mine actually looked bad, they had swelled up, so I replaced them and the monitor now works perfectly.
For someone who does this for a hobby or living it doesn't sound too difficult. Don't try it on your own without proper help. I hope this helps.

Will the power button still be on while the screen is blank? if yes, it means your picture board is malfunctioning.
The picture board on your monitor is bad, since the screen turns blank after two seconds
and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor
has developed fault.
The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer or any service center
within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because
the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate
Hi sglick - you will need to do a few simple trouble shooting steps to pinpoint the problem, as this can be cause by several different things.
Follow these steps and reply back with your findings:
1. Unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor.
2. Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet.
3. If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad.
4. Disconnect all connected devices except the mouse, keyboard and monitor. This includes thumb drives and camera-type memory cards from card reader slots. With the devices disconnected, restart the computer. If the computer starts and the monitor now displays a picture, a device is preventing the computer from starting or sending a proper video signal to the monitor. Update the BIOS to resolve this issue.
If doing all of this doesn't change your issue of no video after seeing it pop on, try the monitor on a different computer/laptop, and if you have one, a different monitor on the system with the problem.
Let us know what you find following these steps and we can figure out what to do next.
The synchro transistor has died. The only option is to have it repaired. Just had it happen to mine, can't tell you thye cost yet though as I have a loan monitor while dell fix it. Of course they will find more than 1 item i bet. But a tch who works for samsunhg looked at it and told me it would need to have a new sync transistor. Because its dell he wouldnt touch it.
It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors
will blow a power supply. The problem is usually caused by parts called
capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are
good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the 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 pictures 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.

Same symptom with mine. Turned out it was NOT the monitor, but the stand-alone power supply. Once the display fully powered on, the supply would cut out, apparently unable to drive current needed. I stole 12V from the computer's power supply and have no problems. Your display is fine.
Sorry not a solution - but I have started experiencing the exact same problem over the last month although sometimes, on switching on again, it will run for 10-15 minutes before the problem re-emerges. Initially I put it down to the v. hot weather in July but it still continues.
So I would also appreciate any solutions!
