My microtek 517m lcd monitor it keeps going blank

Ok my monitor will go blank then if push the on an off button it will come on then in a few sec gose out again what is going on ? thank you tammy c. I have a Microtek 17" LCD Monitor that keeps going out, also.

When I turn it on, it lights up, and you can see everything, then after about 3 - 5 seconds, the screen turns completely black.

If I turn it off, then back on, it comes on again, and does the exact same thing, only lasting about 3-5 seconds, every single time.
Talk about frustrating!

I'm pretty sure it's the lamp assembly, because I can see a faint image if I shine a flashlight on the screen...
But I don't know where to get parts, or bulb replacement instructions.

I think If I could just get the parts, and replacement info, I could fix it myself.

Anyone know where I might find what I need to fix this?

My Microtek 710S Monitor screen goes black if left unattended for one minute. What do I do to keep this from happening?


Check the power setting of your PC.
  • If you are on windows;
  • Click on start button
  • If you have vista or windows 7, type "poweroptions" into the search bar.
If not, open control panel and find the power options inthere
  • In "power options" you can change when the displaygets turned off and when your PC will go to sleep, just change these settingsto the time you want, e.g. 2hours
I can offer support for other OS if required

Why dose mky monitor go blank after a few sec.


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, 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/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Monitor flickers and goes blank after 5 seconds and keep repeating this very often.


Hello,

If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, 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.
