Monitor goes black after about 30 seconds. Turn it off and back on again and it does the same thing. Leaving it on or off for extended periods of time does not seem to make any difference.

SOURCE: Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.

Sounds like either there is a bad connection from the computer to the monitor, or the monitor has a faulty power regulator, causing the monitor to overheat prematurely, and shut off.

SOURCE: Acer AL1912 19" LCD Monitor goes black after power up.

The problem with this monitor is a leaking capacitor on the power supply board. It is the middle one at the top in a row of three. The value is 10V 1000uf. Common problem for these.
Remove 4 screws from back of display. The case can be popped apart with a small flat putty knife at different points along the two seams. Three latches on each side and two at top and bottom. Push and twist at the latch points. There is a metal cover over the two boards. Power supply board to left. Screws and plugs can be romved. Unsolder Capacitor and replace. Radio Shack probably has them. Maybe a couple bucks. Be sure the power has been off for a while. These also have problems with the button board and corrosion at ribbon cable.

do you have an aftermarket video card. In the bios you have to tell the computer if it is looking for a agp/onboard or PCI video card. Either that or the video driver or settings are wrong Try safe mode to check

SOURCE: RE:monitor goes black

Monitor going black after a few seconds can be causd by a faulty power supply or inverter. Some monitors have both as one unit.
Sometimes it is basic failed capacitors, After that then I would look at transistors.
The average monitor from 17 to 20 and sometimes the 22s have usually 4 bulbs in them. One bad bulb will also cause the inverter to not fire up.
Bad bulbs usually show pinkish tint, or flickering or are dark at center top or bottom of the display.

Why does screen go black after a few seconds


Hope this helps.... Your monitor has an inverter issue. You know it's an inverter problem when:
1. Your monitor starts normally and displays the startup/desktop screen for a while.
2. Then it suddenly goes off, leaving a blank (black) screen or a very dim display.

To fix this black screen problem, change the inverter board (based on your monitor brand).

My AOC screen goes black after about a few seconds after booting.


Hello,

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.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer or service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Monitor comes on for a split second, then goes to black


This is a problem with the capacitors in many different monitors. I have 5 IBM ThinkVision monitors sitting on my desk at work with the same problem.
If you know what you are doing, pop the monitor open and have a look at the powerboard inside it. There are four main capacitors, and its likely one or 2 will be popped. Get some replacements, solder them in and you're set.
Again, only if you know what you are doing. $3 of capacitors is cheaper than $50 repair.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


I start my computer and turn it on, and everything looks fine for about 1/4 of a second and then it goes black while leaving the power light green. I can only see the screen again after turning it off and on, but that's only for another 1/4 second. What's up?
I got my rosewill flatscreen as a hand me down from my father. I've had it for several years now. Was working fine until a month ago. When I turn the computer on the screen goes black after 1/4 of a saecond. I have to turn it off and on anywhere from 10 to 20 times before it stays on. I have checked all plugs to the computer and outlets. I have absolutely no idea whats causing this.

LCD screen goes black repeatedly


Have you checked the light on your power supply? My monitor will go black and I noticed the light on my AC power supply was off. It was very hot so I unplugged it and let it cool down. When I plugged it back in my monitor worked fine until the power supply started to over heat again.

Monitor going black


My HP f1703 is almost 3 years old and started having this same problem. My fix got the display to stay on. Don't know how long this fix will work. I set the monitor brightness to 51 and contrast to 41. You may have to adjust to your levels to your appropriate enviroment. Levels may determine how long the monitor stay operational. Do NOT set your monitor brightness to factory levels it will just start to recreate the problem again. Solution: The monitor should be on with the blue button lighted. If the screen is acting up (you turn it on and the display lights up and then it turns off within 2 to 5 seconds) Try decreasing the brightness level down as much as possible. Wait 15 to 30 seconds and see if the display comes back to life. If not, turn the monitor off and on again and try the procedure again, if necessary. Cause: I believe the monitor brightness level, set at 100 by the factory setting, is over driving the display and causing the protection circuit to cut off the flouresent lamps that light the display. HP had an issue with this display, and had a notice to replace them if the problem occurred during the warranty period. They extended the warranty period from Jun 04 to Feb 06. Check with HP Technical Support to determine if your monitor is cover.
