Screen goes blank when first turned on, have to keep restarting m


If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

Monitor does power up but no picture??

heck342, Your monitor may have the common "black screen of death" that will occur to ANY AND ALL cold cathode-fluorescent-lamp, back-lit, lcd monitors sometime during their lifetime. You will need to do a lot of reading in my fixya profile and those of "buddymc" , "budmrtn" and then you will understand what you will or will not do with your unit. I'll even bet you haven't been to YOUTUBE to view any DIY repair videos yet! Come back here for more info after you do a little research on the WEB, and can tell us tech's that you know the difference between a "black screen" and a "blank n black screen" monitor. Remember this, your CCFL back-lit lcd unit" design and principle of operation isn't any different than any other brand. Have you done the "flashlight test" that every CCFL back-lit lcd monitor owner should know how to perform and interpret the resulting info when black screen of death occurs? Bye for now. 12fixlouie

Screen went blank

cslkkent, Your description of problem fits the common "black" or "blank n black" lcd screen symptom. Because 98 percent of all desktop cold cathode fluorescent lamp back-lit lcd monitors use the same basic lighting technology, it will be in your best interest to view some video clips of CCFL back-lit lcd monitor repair on YOUTUBE just for info on typical causes of black or blank n black screen symptoms and how some owners do repair on the cheap! Yes, your unit may have BAD capacitors on the power supply printed circuit board or one "thermally intermittant" component solder joint which will need to be resoldered. Just do some research first. Read fixya profiles of "buddymc" , "budmrtn" and my own files. Good luck on your quest. 12fixlouie

Monitor started flashing then went almost black, very, very faint.

ivanging, Happens a lot!!! You will be able to see screen if you hold flashlight 1" from screen. If unit out of warranty, you or qualified cold cathode fluorescent lamp back-lit lcd monitor technician will need to find root cause of lamps not lighting-up for you to see all the colorful text and graphics. Reading is free on fixya!!! All you need to know has already been written and documented here on fixya. Get yourself into the FIXYA profiles of "louie12fix" (my old file) and "buddymc" , "budmrtn" and follow all links you find there!!! Just remember to return to this posting and write a testimonial about all you have learned about why ccfl back-lit lcd monitors fail. Your unit has good chance for complete recovery from it's "black" but not "blank n black" screen state.
Do some reading and visit YOUTUBE for DIY repair videos to make decision to repair or contract out repair work or just trade for new. Good luck with whatever direction you take. 12fixlouie

Look for bulged or leaking capacitors on the power supply board. If you can solder, you should be able to replace them with the same type and rating and that may just solve the problem. I've had luck with a couple of dozen monitors so far.

Turn on the monitor the screen says "out of range" in a small window and turns off

Lower down resoluction and color quality to minimum on your pc, using 'display properties' in Windows. Connect the monitor back to pc with minimal settings. If it works is done.
If it still does not work there is a major problem with the monitor. In this case It should be opened and tested inside following schematics. In this case you may need to take the monitor to a service in your area.

Unplug the monitor from the computer,
it should display the diagnostic screen on monitor in color.
if not reconnect it and boot computer or attach to a running computer with some stuff on the screen,
get a bright light and shine on the screen at an angle do you see the stuff/desktop.if you do the lamp or power supply is bad.
if the monitor is lit and the lamps work but no diagnostics then the video cpu on the monitor is bad.

3yr old got ahold of monitor
