Starlogic LCD Turns Off

I have a 17'' Starlogic LCD monitor that powers on, shows the picture, then immediately goes black.

Cycle the power, picture comes back, then goes black again.

From everything I have read on here and other places it seems that the culprit would be bad capacitor(s). However, I have inspected all of the compactors and none of them show any of the physical signs of failure. There is no bulging, splitting or substances on any of them.

Is it possible they are bad and not showing it? Or, is it likely something else is causing the problem?

SOURCE: The monitor turns off and on repeatedly.

I opened up and fixed a monitor just like this. The reason it only stays on for a second is because there are 4 or 5 bad capacitors on the power supply board that have over heated and gone bad due to cheap parts or poor ventilation. All I had to do was replace them and the monitor worked fine after that. Also i resoldered one joint on the bottom. While I dont reccomend the average home user to try this it is an extremely easy fix if you have the right tools.

Starlogic LCD Computer Monitor

I can't find a website for StarLogic anywhere, so either they have gone out of business (not likely as there should be some reference to them somewhere) or they are imported from a foreign manufacturer and rebranded with the StarLogic name.

Monitor Continually Goes Blank

You are right in assuming it to be the monitor.
It is the inverter circuit that powers the backlights inside the LCD.
No backllight, no view. If you shine a bright light into the screen you will see it is still working, just not visible.

The Viewsonic range of monitors have a habit after several years use developing bad capacitors that need to be replaced. It's something that happens to most LCD's and alot of other electronics.. so not a design flaw, just age.

If you have modest electrical knowledge then its an easy job, If not then take it to your local TV repairman and have them do it. It should not cost alot to have it done. The main expense in this case is the labour.
Call a few shops in the area and get rough quotes to have it done. You will be surprised how much the cost can vary for the same simple job.

the signal stage of your monitor is likely to have a problem, if the cpu is working fine then troubleshoot the signal stage of your monitor or visit a local technician

If you are getting a "No Signal" message, someone may have inadvertantly pressed the wrong button on the monitor. Use up arrow of button #5 below to cycle through RGB (normal VGA connection) and DVI sources. Down arrow will result in "No Signal" message.

There are five buttons at the bottom of the screen on this monitor. From the left:
1 - sound volume
2 - degausser
3 - power on/off
4 - monitor set-up
5 - RGB/DVI source
