    uhh yeah, I have this problem too, anybody know what the cause of this is? Or am I just dumb for buying a monitor from some random asian manufacturer?... Either way a solution would be nice...

    The little power light blinks green but the monitor does not power-on. Something is stopping it from doing so, gotta find out what...

    Very frustrating problem... if I turn it off then on, after 5 seconds or so I can see my desktop "flash" for half a second... eventually the monitor starts to work, but I'm never sure if it was something *I* did, or if it just finally warmed up.

    I get this problem with multiple computers, and with both the digital and analog ports, and it occurs regardless of what OS I'm running, so there's definitely something wrong with the monitor hardware itself.

You need to check the fly back of your monitor maybe experience over heat. It is possible need for replacement but not the whole monitor only the fly back.

Hope you like my solution please rate me solved.

Best regards,

Samsung 793S (Black) 17

On these older CRT monitors when you have that type of problem it indicated that the high voltage power supply is not putting out the right voltage to charge the picture tube. As the power supply gets weaker the time to show a picture will take longer and longer. It is not worth repairing the unit because parts will run much more than a replacement monitor.

My monitor shows image immediately when switched on but just as soon the image appears the screen of the monitor goes dark after that need to off/on the power switch three to four times before the image...

Please restart your computer and tap the F8 key as soon as you see something on the screen. You should get the advanced boot menu. Select Safe Mode from the list.

Let me know if you were able to boot to safe mode.

Laptop shows blank screen

It appears that the display has gone out in the computer. Sorry to say but you have two options. 
1. You can take the computer to a computer repair shop and get a new motherboard put in.
2. You can go buy a new computer. 
They both will cost about the same but it is more worth it to buy a new computer in my opinion. The reason i say this is originally i was thinkning that the LCD monitor in the laptop may have gone out but if it is not showing anything on an external monitor than the computer is not putting out any display at all.

Monitor image comes up, then blacks out, power still on

Hello David,

This is very common problem and is heat/age related, but It can happen to monitors that are no more than a year old. It is usually bad capacitors on on power inverter board. I just fixed two monitors with this problem. This problem is common across all brands. Look for several radial capacitors in a cluster on the power inverter board. If some are bulging or have a slightly domed top, they are the ones that are bad. I usually replace all the capacitors in this small cluster because some may be marginal. This is easy to do if you have a bit of electronics skill.

The Monitor on my Nikon D80 does not show any image when I try to take a picture - The viewfinder is ok and the camera takes a picture ok and displays it for about 4 seconds on the monitor after taking it....

You can switch it off so as not to show the picture after you take one.

You cannot use the monitor to show images as you're taking them. The D80 does not have a Live View capability.

Screen not appearing straight away

It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems till it warms up. Turn you computer on and while the monitor is displaying black and the power LED is green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. A 15" LCD monitor is probably not an economically repairable problem unless you have access to really cheap parts and have the skills and tools to do the repair yourself.
