Screens shows but then gos black

Confirm that all the input cables at the back are securely plugged at the rear of the screen and PC/output source and that the image source is switched on and displaying an image. This can be done by switching your PC on and waiting five mins. Then check that the power for the screen is on. If this does not work, then let me know

White line appears in the middle of the screen

please describe the issue better cause it doesn't make sense..are you saying that your screen background is black no matter of the picture you choose??or that the image of the monitor is just showing a black screen??in the case I sescribed ..if the operation system seams to work but you can not insert any pictures anymore on wallpaper and it is black ..and a genuine advantage program is inserted a banner in the tray system ..(right ) ..this is a case that yous windows is not genuine and the warrning was placed after you check it on a installation get rid of it ...just make a search in the start for a file named..WgaLogon.dll ..and after you lcate it ...rename in by changing a letter in th emiddle (ex: WgaLogTon)..and restart the computer ..after this the functions will be right back ..insert another walpaper and go on ..
If you are talking about the image being just a white line in the middle and the rest is black like it is shut down..than the issue is caused by a condenser burned on the image should have it checked and changed..

When screen comes out of screensaver/sleep mode,

It's a bad LCD screen or bad video card. If its a laptop, try to hook an external monitor to the video port in the back and see if it has the same problem. If it is the same problem, then you know its the video card and not the monitor screen. If you have a desktop PC that has this problem, its most likely the video card. First try removing the monitor and trying it on another computer to see if the monitor is bad. If not, then remove and replace your video card and restart. If same problem, replace video card with a new one.

I have a VX1962WM monitor. When I power up my PC I can see an image briefly then the screen goes black. When I power the monitor down and back up I again see an image briefly and then it is gone. I have...

That's right, the problem is related to inverter, but source of it - backlight lamps (if you see an image for fractions of seconds) or MOSFETs (if you see an image for few or more seconds). Image shows up, that means inverter starts, but then goes off because inverter controller turns into protection caused by something. Checking lamps is not that hard. Disconnect all cables coming from the screen and remove chassis with PCBs, so you will keep the display itself only. Next, at the edge where high-voltage wires are coming from, there you will see tiny philips screws, take them off. Then gently and very straight pull lamps assembly off the display, one and then another. If lamp is bad you shall observe contrast black ring or black dots near to the electrodes. Bad lamps must be replaced, you can buy them on ebay, for instance, just search CCFL 19". Or, if you don't care about total brightness, you can substitute faulty lamp with 27 pF 3kV capacitor, soldered across appropriate HV-connector on the inverter board - this will work also.

A 20" monitor gets a black screen when turned on

sounds like you might have a back lighting issue? take a flash light and shine it on the monitor when it is black and look to see if the image is there but not lit up, if this is the case then you might need to change the light balist in the monitor of even the back lights themselfs..
if the picture is fuzzy for a long period of time then you have a controler card issue there is a controler card in the monitor that changes the image coming in from HDMI, VGA, DVI into the binary that the vertical and horizontal drivers use to show you the image onthe screen... hope this info helps. good luck

Monitor Goes black, or flickers on and off

The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

Starlogic 20 inch widescreen monitor screen keeps going black

This is probably a back light problem. Take a bright flashlight and while the monitor is on, point it at the LCD and try different angles, etc. If you can see an image, it is the back light, probably the back light voltage converter unit in the lcd. It could also be the back light bulbs.

If you don't see an image with the flash light, then it could be the main logic board.

Screen went black

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. You have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is very easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. You might go get technician to do fix it.
