This is not a good sign, I have been there, other than a loose connector, it sounds like the module that enables the power up cycle is blown. Have you tried the monitor on another machine? if the same thing is happening then it's time for service. There are several other things it could be but there is no sense running down a list of possibles till we know that it is 100% the monitor and not the machine. If it is the monitor you had better find out if it's covered, or not, the price has come down so mutch that if it's not covered, the shipping on a 19 inch that I also needed packeing at the local Pak and ship ,was over 70.00 just to send it to viewsonic, luckilly they lost it and paid me the original price after a 6 week wait, make sure you take insurance if it must go. I'll wait for you to figure out if it's the monitor.thanks Gym

It can be due to dying power supply due to bad caps, that will be the first place to look.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/

Hannspree computer monitor will not stay on.


More likely to be failed DC filter caps in the power supply section, that will be the first place to look, this is common problem with ALL LCD monitors, sad but ture. You may want to find out if it is still under warranty.

Monitor goes blank after 3 seconds -Samsung SyncMaster 920NW


Could be a power issue. If it doesn't show anything at all then that may be the case. It may also be the display itself. It would be a costly repair so you might be better off finding a new monitor.

Hey. This problem is caused by the Backlight bulb(s) blowing up.
This is fixable. You have to get into the monitor and remove the LCD screen to see what bulb you need. This is a moderately difficult job and fragile parts will easily get broken.

However by all means have a go but this is the problem that you guys have been experiencing
