The monitor is turning off by itself and the power light keeps blinking
As I said on the subject, the monitor is doing this more frequently now, when I turn off the computer or putting it on stand by, the monitor is not saying "no signal", instead is going blank and the power light is blinking, and after that it's impossible to turn it on again, the only way is leaving it like that and try later or shut down the computer and turn it on again, but either way I have to wait, It seems like it's a heating problem, I don't know.
A little help would be appreciated.

If it does comes back on by itself, make sure that the vga cable is properly connected on the vga port on your computer. Does the led light on the monitor turns from green to amber? if yes, check for connection cables and the power cable.
Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.
I think the problem with your monitor is that, the picture
board on the monitor is malfunctioning that is why it keeps going blank
after a minute.
What you need to do is to replace the picture
board on your LCD monitor, replacing the picture board will solve the
problem, because the picture board on the monitor at the moment is bad
and will need to be replace.
Replace the picture board and you
will see that the problem will not repeat itself again.
TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTITf correct focus cannot be obtained
When the subject to be focused is not on the AF target mark (not positioned
in the center of the composition), you can use the following steps to obtain the
correct focus on the subject. This operation is referred to as "focus lock".
Determine the position of the subject after focusing (Focus Lock)
1 Press the power switch.
• The camera turns on in the shooting
• The lens extends and the monitor turns
• The orange lamp lights.
2 Turn the mode dial and select a
"Shooting mode" (P.36)
3 Position the AF target mark on
the subject you want to focus on.
• When shooting a hard-to-focus
subject, point the camera at an object
about the same distance away as the
Press the shutter button halfway
until the green lamp lights.
• When the green lamp lights steadily,
the focus and the exposure are locked.
• When the green lamp blinks, the focus
and exposure are not locked. Release
your finger from the shutter button, reposition
your subject and press the
shutter button halfway again.
5 Keeping the shutter button
pressed halfway, recompose
6 Press the shutter button fully.
Try the above, info from D-535, C-370 and X-450.
I can email you the complete manual if this works.
check your power settings (run>control>power options>change plan settings>advanced options>display)
you will see the setting for your monitor to power off
it should be set to 2 hrs or more if you plan on watching a movie or keeping the monitor on without having to frequently touch the keyboard or mouse.
turning adaptive display on may affect your situation as well. try switching it on.
This should do the trick for you. If not you may have an issue with either your video card or your monitors power supply.
(if the light stays on on the monitor when it goes blank but it doesnt repsond to the mouse or the keyboard, its a setting on your system or the hardware itself)
Yeah, I called Dell yesterday, and they said it was a problem that I could not fix myself. Whether that's true or not, I don't know, but my monitor was still under warranty, so they shipped me a replacement right away. I already got it this morning.
Check the settings control panel, power options to make sure the setting is not engage to power saving after "minutes" if it is change to the require time or disable, then apply the settings and exit. if this is not the problem, the other most common problem with these emachines and random and frequent unplanned shutdowns is a the motherboard itself.
