Hi there.
Its not the screen, its the display settings that has to be changed.
Go to the control panel and select power options, in power options look for select when to turn of the monitor and set it to never as its probably set to turn of after 20 minutes or so also set the hard drive to never turn off, save the changes and the problem should not arise again.
If you need anymore help or advice please post back.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

In the middle of a session the screen turn black, but the computer seem to be on... we need to stop it with the middle button and restart it again. Usualy it start back normaly again. But one time, instead...


You need to start up in safe mode you do this by pressing F8 while it is booting up you will then see a screen that says start normal or safe mode pick safe mode if it boots up and it will take a little while then shut down the computer by selecting shut down and then restart this will most likley solve your problem

The fault is a back-light problem and the fault could be a faulty inverter board or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Monitor goes black after running for a few minutes. Brand new 22 inch sceen.I prees the button to turn it on and it says Analog and goes black again. I have to shut down the computor to get it to come back...


Sounds like the computer is shutting it down and the monitor is fine. Check for viruses then check your settings in device manager for the screen saver and power down (screen off) options.

Monitor flashes on then goes black.


I think you have the display shut off. the button on the bottom left will shut screen off. It will come on for a few seconds if you touch the screen, but will shut off again. just push the display button again and it should stay on.

No picture, good audio. Replaced motherboard...


I think I may finally have the answer for the "black screen of death" for the 42" Polaroid LCD televisions. I was having the same issue with the screen going black after a couple minutes of being on. I would shut it down then turn it back on and it would work again for 5-10 minutes. On the "power board" which is the board on top, there is a little red light that turns on when the screen would go black. above that there are 4 little switches, the lower on says BURN. I simply switched that over and the television has been working for 2 days for 8 hours + each day. Hope this help. Let me know

Hi again and welcome back to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Would initially suggest to clean the memory(/ies). Turn over the laptop, behind one of the panels/lid/cover secured by a screw or two would be the memory modules. Snap them out, use a hard pencil eraser to clean the little gold pins, a dry brush on the memory slots and re-insert the memories back, try again.

Should this be not corrective, it would appear that you have a video driver problem and fails to load correctly. Try booting into "Last known good configuration that worked", otherwise might require re-installing Windows all over again, sorry.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

My monitor works for a little while, then goes black.


Your power-inverter board needs an overhaul.
Probably in need of the standard capacitor replacement.
OR
a bulb in the screen is bad (a bad bulb will usually show symptoms)
It will flicker, or will look pinkishish for a bit or dark in the middle top or bottom of the screen.

Monitor black screen


Your first step in troubleshooting this problem is to plug in another monitor to your computer. If you are having the same problem it is related to your computer. If the second monitor works fine then your original monitor is shot.
