Re: Going Black

Sounds thermal runaway. A component is getting too hot and failing. It will cool down and then work for a bit. Pull the covers to access all the boards and get a can of freeze it spray. You can identify the suspect parts with that.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.

Sounds like either there is a bad connection from the computer to the monitor, or the monitor has a faulty power regulator, causing the monitor to overheat prematurely, and shut off.

We bought a new Hannspree in November, now all at

chummel36, Find your warranty and then yell and scream at them about poor quality and premature failure, but only after you connect to a different known good pc and see if your monitor still acts crazy. Learn to do the flashlight test to determine partial or full shutdown state of monitors "switch-mode-power-supply" when screen goes black or blank n black!!! Spend some time in my fixya profile reading about black screen problems before you do anything else. 12fixlouie

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.

LCD monitor turns black after a few seconds

I went through a lot of threads trying to come up with the solution to this problem, monitor goes off after a couple of seconds of just hitting the blue power button, and the solution I came to is the power supply within the monitor has gone out! which is common for flat pannel monitors, but I am not saying my situation is the same as yours, if you see different colors when it goes off on you, their is other problems wrong, mine has always been the power supply and I just take the monitor to a laptop repair guy and he charges me 65 flat to repair the issue. instead of going to viewsonic which they want you to send them and pay out of pocket first before they fix your issue. I will say 65 dollars flat and 3 days of not having a monitor is better then going to the ups store and paying 65 to box it and 70 to ship it. I guess look around for an electronics expert in your area and have them take a look at it.

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.

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.
