The LCD does goes dark after power on

When I power on the computer the the LCD screen power on and after a couple of seconds goes dark. The computer and the programs are working normal, its only the LCD screen that goes dark. The same thing happens when I switch the LCD monitor power switch on/off - the LCD comes on for a few seconds and then turns dark.
I was told that it was the inverter, which I replaced but the problem still persists.
Looking for advice to find a fix to this problem. Thank you.

    Thanks ehsan, but its not OK. The problem is that the LCD stays on for a few seconds and then turns black. If I work the monitor power button on/off the lcd will come on again for another two seconds and turn black. Simply put the LCD display is on for a couple of seconds and then goes black. Like I said replaced the inverter, problem still persists.

How do I restart my computer?


If your computer is on and you want to warm restart, select the 3 keys (Alt-Ctrl- Del) and the computer should restart without powering off.

If you want to cold restart, hold down the power button on your tower for at least 5 seconds and then let go when your screen goes dark. Push the button again to start.

Hope this resolves your problem.

My averatec lcd won't stay on

Can you try your monitor on another computer to see if it does this there as well? Usually this happens only when video is not detected coming from the PC. It could be as simple as a short in the monitor cable. If you have it connected to a laptop you'll also want to check you control panel power setting rules and then the screen saver under display.

Monitor keep going into "sleep" mode

Check the power setting in control panel of windows. If you have a monitor from another computer swap them and see if the problem stays with the computer or monitor.

Lcd goes dark after 15 minutes

More likely the power supply. If you have the ability, use a ESR meter on the caps in the power suply. I think you'll find that several caps are old and failing.

It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?

LCD monitor comes on for 1-2 seconds and then screen goes dark (power light stays on - green). Turn monitor off and back on and same result.

It sounds like you could have either a faulty VGA cable (slim chance) or a faulty graphics processor.

Try using a different cable from a friend.

Good luck!

The Screen is Dark and Cannot be Bright by the Brightness Keys. It Flickers when it first comes on but goes Dark. Can see it if you shine a Flashlight on the Screen. Also the Lid Switch if you Press that...

Assuming all of the connections are secure this is most likely due to a failing LCD inverter which is basically the backlight of the screen. If it's less than a year old cash in on the manufacturer's warranty. If it's not you might as well buy a new one. Hope this helps.
