Re: Monitor goes black

I also had an issue with a Benq FP731 monitor. They have a 3yr warranty so my suggestion is to send it back. You have a IC on the inside that is getting ready to go out. You have to call them and get an RMA and pay for shipping out to them, but they ship back on their dime.

Monitor has power. Will come on very briefly and the go to black screen. Can turn power off and back on and get the same above result.After a 2-3 hour period may come to life...may not.

It appears as if the monitor's back lighting is failing. To test the theory, take a bright flashlight and shine it on the lcd monitor screen when it goes black. If you can see the images that were on the screen before it went dark while shining the flashlight on the screen, then the back lighting is failing. Depending on the monitor, it could have florescent or L.E.D. back lighting, but it's usually more economical to simply replace the monitor with a new better performing monitor, than to attempt repairing the back lighting on the failing monitor.

Black screen

What do you do to make it come back on? Sounds like it might be getting too hot and/or going bad. Try it on another machine and see what it does. Also try another video card because the video card could be going bad.
Sounds like an insurance claim.

Monitor problem: screen goes black, then comes in scrambled

It sounds like this one needs component-level troubleshooting, probably in the power supply section. One or more backlights may be going out, too.
