Re: screen going off after 4 seconds


This is a typical LCD monitor problem. Here's a copy of my response to a similar issue /  post.

...If the power light stays on and the unit works even if for just a moment, then chances are that you either have a cold solder, or a heat problem with some components or your CCF Lamp is starting to fail.

All possibilities require that you open your LCD monitor and perform diagnostics of the components/circuitry inside. This of course would require that you be familiar with components, circuitry, soldering and the use of a VOM.

Cold solder - refers to soldered connections that have lost 100% of their connectivity. When the unit is jarred or after some time of use it looses completely its connection. The corrective measure require that the said cold solder be located and resoldered.

Heat problems with some components - the most often are power capacitors. These are can types rated something like 470uF/16V.  When power is applied and heat starts to build up, they start to looses their capacitance and therefore can no longer hold a charge.  Most cases, there are physical evidences such as blistering, brownish leakage at the top or at the bottom, swelling or gaps at the X/Y indentation at the top.

CCF Lamp - may involve the backlight or the inverter that powers it. A way to verify this is to shine a flashlight on the instance the screen blinks out at the screen. A faint image of your desktop should be visible.  The CCF Lamp is similar to household fluorescent lamp which of course can fail after some time of usage.  The inverter is a high frequency high voltage power for the lamp.

Since there are dangerous high voltages inside, extreme care should be practiced when working on exposed components.  Should you not be comfortable doing this, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified technician.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things are or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Screen Goes Blank

Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.

Beautiful screen, lasts about for a few minutes, goes black. Power button still green. If I turn it off, and then back on, it works again for a while. Any ideas?

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.

Unplug the cable from your PC, if the monitor shows a test image, the monitor is fine and the problem is with your graphic card. If you dont see nothing on-screen after unpluging the cable from the PC, then the monitor in damaged. Send it to repair.
