Moniter flashes on, then goes dark. help please!

I just moved my monitor from one desk to another and during the transfer something must have gone wrong with it.
It lights up and power goes to it, and when i turn it on it flashes for half a second and i can see everything. Then it goes dark and i can see very very faintly what is displayed.
I was able to get enough light on it to mess with the funtion tool on the moniter and turn the brightness up to full, but that did nothing.

Sounds to me like its either the inverter or the lcd. If you can get the monitor apart go ahead and reseat the lcd cable cause it could be that the cable came loose during the move, it could be halfway in and halfway out.

After you do that see if the monitor works then, if not then try a different monitor on the computer, if you still get dim video with the known good working monitor then you know that the video card is bad.

If you get a good picture with a known good working monitor then you know the original monitor is bad.

Keep in mind that LCD's are sensitive and even if they get slightly hit, it could be enough to knock them out of commission.

Sounds like a cable issue. Since this is a NEC monitor the cable has connectors on both ends. Turn off the monitor disconnect both ends and reconnect, then turn it on.

The back light is the whole of the screen, the screen is illuminated by a CCFL lamp (fluro tube) on the bottom of the screen. A inverter supplies high voltage to this CCFL lamp.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

No display on Viewsonic VA1912wb


Your monitor sounds like it has gone bad. Cost for a repair is not worth it, a new one would be cheaper. Prices have gone down a lot in three years

Have two dark smudges on screen


Dear Chaplink,

You said "two dark smudges on monitor screen".

Asumming that these smudges are digital and not just something tata you can remove with cleaner, If your moniter is back-projecting then the issue is probably that the projector has been damaged.

If your monitor is a flat-screen then the gels inside of it are misplaced from somone touching and damaging your screen.

So basically, the only practical thing you can do is buy a new monitor.

Moniter is only shows self test e173fpc


It sounds like your video card may be kaput. Can you try another monitor on it? If you use a monitor that you know works, and it does the same thing - then your video card has failed.

Alternately, you can try a different card and the same monitor.
