Monitor goes blank after 5 seconds, what do i need to do?


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 picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

Monitor starts, about three minutes no picture but


It is the picture picture board on your monitor that is malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on, but the display screen goes blank after few seconds, 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 within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Monitor with a blank screen

The monitor is about 2 years old, time to inspect the caps in the power supply first, look for caps with bulging top. The problem can also be in the inverter circuits, or bad lamps. See example of failed monitors due to bad caps:
