Sounds like the backlight is going out. The display itself is okay, but without the backlight you can't see it (or you may be able to see it very dimly if you look closely). This is usually due to the failure of parts called capacitors in the monitor's power supply, although it could also be due to the backlight lamp itself. Capacitors are a much more likely cause.

It is possible to repair this by replacing the affected parts, but if you will have to pay someone else to make the repair you may just want to replace the monitor. New 17-inch monitors are routinely under $100 now. If you or someone you know has some experience working with electronic soldering and replacing components, you might be able to find detailed information on the Web about which parts need to be changed.

Vaio LCD problem


Periods.......Nice little items because they denote the End of a sentence.
See how this works?

"I have a vgn cs36gj, I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black, I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture, sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

Now you try it.........

"I have a vgn cs36gj. I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black.
I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture."

Okay, I got that part.........

"sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

WHICH LCD?
Laptop LCD?
External monitor LCD?
Man on the moon LCD?

1) If the external monitor LCD goes 'pale black', the problem is the graphics chipset.
This I do not believe

2) If the laptop LCD goes pale black, this I believe.

Get black in every 10 minute


this is a bad sign that your back light or inverter is going bad in the display, when it goes black take a flash light and see if you can see the lcd displaying if so replace the backlight and or inverter and this will solve this issue and put you closer to a fixed monitor.

for my help today all I need is for you to leave a rating and feedback before you skip out, thanks

The monitor screen goes dark about 10 minutes


Please verify the power option setting present in 'control pannel' option once. If you have selected to turn off the power supply after 10mins, (once the system is in idle state) then the SMPS will stop supplying power.

thanks.

Monitor goes blank after 5-10 minutes


You may have a compatibility issue with your monitor. You computer may not be putting out enough power to support your monitor. Check your users manual on your monitor for output requirements. If the monitor's manual has a number to call, call the manufacturer to see if there are any compatibility problems between your computer and your monitor and calling the people who built your computer as well. Get as many scenarios as you can to find a solution. Hoped this helped.

Monitor goes off and on


Yes your backlight is going bad! This is common with an LCD monitor! There are no guarantees with these new items! Sorry I hope that this helps! When a backlight goes bad it will generate enough light to display an image, but it will not hold that charge for very long, it varies based on the manufacturer who sells the Montior!

Monitor goes black


Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!
