My new 21' flatscreen monitor keeps shutting off :(
I recently (5 months ago) bought a large LCD flatscreen for my home pc 21 inch i think and just recently (past 2 weeks) the monitor keeps going to blackscreen and the only way i can get it to come back is to manually turn the monitor off the on again. when u do it says auto detect:(analog input) then it will be fine for another 10-20 minutes then it will shut down again and I repeat the process. The longer it has been turned on the quicker the intervals sometimes having to repeat every 1-2 minutes Ive checked the plug ins everything appears to be okay???? Help please :( thankyou...Lore

Usually when an LCD display shuts off on it's own this can be a power supply issue. I would say if you checked all the connections you may want to contact the manufacturer. If it is only a few months old then you should be able to get it replaced under warranty.
Also, you may have an auto shut off feature enabled on the display itself. You may want to go through the display's menu to very that this is not the case.

change the resolution from the desktop properties(right click on desktop ..choose properties than settings ...in there you will find resolution ...setting ..change them one by one untill you get to one that fits...probably will be the last one in the right ..the largest if it is a wide screen on 21 inch ..
dustcore025, Need a little more info here. Do you know age of monitor? Was it or did it display a "perfect' image on it the day before? Is it under warranty? How far are you willing to go to try and repair this thing? Do you know how to "part" the snap together plastic back cover from the bezel, after removing the pedestal? This sounds to me like a Switch-mode-power-supply or Inverter problem that occurs when some Electrolytic Filter Capacitors get a little bit TIRED of being constantly subjected to high temperatures near heatsinks that are used to keep semiconductors within operating limits. You can determine how bad this may be if you can do a test and remember what happens. Here is what to do. Make sure PC is fully booted displaying WIN desktop or some other screen. Next, with someone to keep hitting the CTRL or SP bar key every 20-40 seconds while you reconnect both cables of your MM17 back to the PC video port and ac outlet. Now try to turn on the monitor and note exactly what you see and for how long. Did it have a sharp clear image, even for 1-2 seconds? did the screen go black? OK! Next thing is to shine a bright flashlight onto the screen 2 inches away from where you know there was something a few seconds ago. Try it at different angles and not if you see anything. get back to me with results of test. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com BYE for now.
If you have your proof-of-purchase and it shows the monitor is less than a year old, it would be covered. You would need to follow the procedure on their website to have the unit repaired or replaced, but it would not be your job to try to fix it.
