Your monitors backlight is shutting off due to a failed component. The inverter circuit which drives the high current CCFL backlights, has a feedback design so that if there are any problems with the devices along the high current path, the high current will shut off. This way if something got shorted out, it would not sustain or cause any great harm. This is a great feature if you are the "short" in the circuit.

So in actuallity, your monitor is still on, and it's still showing you a picture. You just can't really see it because the light from behind has turned off. If you take a flashlight and put it up close to the screen, you'll see your desktop again!

As to what is causing this, It can be several things.
-A broken or burnt out CCFL
-A bad capacitor in the power supply filter or on the inverter.
-A shorted out IC.
-A mouse has crawled inside your LCD and chewed the CCFL wires. (this usually is accompanied with a high pitched squeeling sound, and/or smoke)

You can send me the entire monitor and I will repair it for $40. You pay shipping costs BOTH ways. Let me know if you're interested and I'll provide you with more information on where to send it.

i have read some reviews on your monitor
So the ex-hubby calls me with his woes - his eMachines T3124 is having problems. Seems that when he cold boots in the morning it hits the "E" splash screen and then just goes to black screen. No bios boot screen, no boot to windows. Everything sounds ok though. After a few restarts it boots ok. So, first trouble shoot is to replace the 180w Bestec power supply with a salvaged 300w Hippro from my T6420 (which was replaced with a 500w) - the one I replaced the mobo on. Works great ... for one night. Next morning I get the frantic call - now he gets nothing after the "E" splash but white wavy lines, but the computer sounds like it's running fine. Ok - ok ... think, think. First thought was maybe the onboard graphics have gone, next thought maybe the mobo is going ....

What is the next thing we do after trying a known, good power supply? Try another working montior. I had him try using a trusty older CRT monitor and Wha-Lah! After less than 3 years the E17T4 LCD monitor had failed. Most recent crisis handled. This little incident has made him realize though that he needs to burn all his picture and videos to CD. Scared him to think he could have lost them. Today's reminder? BURN your pictures and videos now! You never known when something might happen. And eMachines monitors are ****.

hope this helps

Your Problem Is not in your Monitor Its in your CPU. Your CPU is not giving Display Signal to Monitor that's why Monitor goes to power saving mode. try to open Your CPU and remove RAM Clean RAM Slots and Fix it Again. Try to Boot now.

Monitor will not stay on


Generally Monitors have a single light in fron pannel, with dual mode colors as Green and Orange.

Green: Everything is OK .
Orange: Everything is OK, except it is not getting
any signals from computer or other source.

Try with any other monitor with your CPU, it may happen that CPU actually not providing any signal to Monitor. Try checking the "NUM LOCK" button on and off, whether it makes the light on keyboard to flash on or off.
If NUM LOCK is woking OK, there is surely some problme with your monitor and you need to get is checked physically with an engineer.

My lg flatron l1710s flashes on and then the picture goes out and thats it but the power light stays green


This is highly suggestive of a power supply failure to deliver the voltages required. A new power pcb should fix the problem but is a job for an experienced repairer.

Monitor Not Showing A Picture. Light flashes Yellow and Green.


use the onboard graphics instead of a seperate graphics card (if installed) to test the screen.if it still doesn't work then unplug your monitor from the mains supply and plug in again to reset it. i doubt it's your monitor that is the problem though. but look on the back of your pc for another connection for your screen. the onboard graphics connection is normally vertical near your ethernet port and mouse and keyboard inputs.

please rate me and give me a fixya! if it helped.

Goes out


Please list the model number of your monitor.
Also is the power light flashing? What color(s)?

Unfortunately the symptoms you are describing tell me the inverter/power board inside your monitor needs to be replaced.

Monitor flashes on and off!


Sounds like you have a bad connection from your monitor to your computer. First check and make sure the connection between them is tight. Does your computer boot up and run though? If your computer is not booting up the monitor will default back to the flashing green power light
