    Have you tried another resolution to see if it is blanking from too high a refresh rate?

Have you tried booting into safe mode? This will also provide a safe video mode. During bootup, press the F8 key. Arrow down to "Safe Mode" and press the enter key. If the monitor still does it after this, chances are it is bad.

Keeps reseting itself


Dude check your A/V or HDMI cables or whatever you use. HDMI cables can be tricky. Make sure that the different shades of color are matched up exactly. Ex: make sure light blue isn't plugged into the dark blue slot. it may not appear as if it matters but trust me it does.

New TV 9 mos old, Won't stay on after power up? Remote or manual turn on, set keeps turning off after 1-2 second green on and brief screen flash.


I would try leaving the TV unplugged for 30mins so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, your TV should still be under warranty. I know 95% of come with a 1 year warranty.
The most common problem with Sylvania TVs made by FUNAI, the Backlight Inverter board fails to early in life. ( That's the part that powers the screen)
The Tv can't power up the screen and it turns off automatically. Basically called "Protection Mode" so it protects the other parts inside the TV.

Screen Keeps turning off after about 1 second. I turn it on and can see the desktop for about a second then the screen shuts itself off. turn it on and it keeps going off.like everysecond or two..tried...


willie114, You have typical problem of lcd monitor failure. There is only one further test you can do. Reconnect H170L to an already fully booted pc with WIN-Desktop showing. then and only then turn on H170L. As soon as screen goes to BLACK, shine bright flashlight 1 -2 inches from screen at different angles. You may or may not see the desktop screen even though the screen is black. If desktop can be seen it only means that the power supply is still powering up the digital lcd driver board. The problem is that your long, thin, Cold-Cathode-Fluorescent-Tubes are not lighting up due to a problem with the Inverter Supply that feeds AC to power the lamps. The inverter gets DC from the Switch-Mode-Power-Supply. The technology your are dealing with is similar to the new energy saving curlieQ screw-in replacement light bulbs. Only your tubes are straight and hung left to right horizontally in back of the lcd and their power source is a bit simpler and called a converter. AC to AC. Get back to me and I will let you know of your options as a consumer/user whose screen has gone to BLACK. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com Bye for now
